Mock Draft Report: Last Call

If you've read the previous 11 versions of Mock Draft Report leading up to the grand finale, this should come as no surprise: Most mock drafters expected the Panthers to invest the No. 8 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft in a running back.

If for some unimaginable reason you haven't checked it out the last couple of weeks, however, this will come as a surprise: Group think says that running back will be Christian McCaffrey.

After two-plus months of mock drafts dominated by LSU running back Leonard Fournette, McCaffrey closed strong and surpassed him in the projections. Fournette has certainly remained in the mix, and defensive end Solomon Thomas and tight end O.J. Howard have also been constants.
