Your team's first round picks since 2010, if Mel Kiper's initial mock drafts were perfect

Eagles NFL

On Thursday this week, the original "draftnik," ESPN's Mel Kiper, published his first mock draft of the offseason. I can say with a high level of certainty that it will be very, very wrong. Mock drafts are what they are – a good way to learn a little something about the top prospects who will be selected in or around the first round of the draft. If you're looking for accuracy, forget it.

This isn't to goof on Kiper – OK, maybe a tiny bit – but as we did last year, let's take a look at who your team would have drafted if Kiper were 100 percent accurate on his mock drafts since 2010:
