2009 Super Fan Super Mock Draft: 18-32
Editor's note: These selections were made before April 17 reports surfaced that the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles were working on a Jason Peters trade that would give the Bills the 28th overall pick, courtesy of the Eagles.
At the beginning of the 2008 NFL season, Scouts Inc.'s Jeremy Green and his producer, Jay (Pod Vader) Soderberg, selected 32 lucky fans to represent their favorite NFL teams, as the "voice of the fan" for that team.
After a rigorous e-mail competition, and a few changes along the way -- we seemed to have lost contact with our Tampa Bay fan -- the Super Fans did a more than admirable job of representing their teams all season long. Now, with the 2009 NFL draft upon us, their last responsibility as 2008 Super Fans is participating in the Super Fan Super Mock Draft.
Over the course of a weekend, the Super Fans were allowed to trade picks and players as if they were the GMs of their team (and all trades were approved by commissioner Jeremy Green). Only one trade occurred, but it did not affect the order of the first round.
Here are picks 18-32. They are discussed on this Football Today: Friday podcast.
