Go through the gallery to see Justin Rogers’ NFL mock draft 1.0. Click here if you have trouble viewing the gallery.

Mock drafts are an inexact science. But, for the average fan who hasn’t bothered to keep up to date with the latest and greatest college talent, they serve a purpose.

With the college All-Star game circuit already underway, highlighted by the Senior Bowl next weekend, and the scouting combine six weeks down the road, consider this a formal introduction to the incoming class of NFL players.

The Detroit Lions hold the No. 20 pick this year — a spot that has netted offensive tackle Garett Bolles, linebacker Darron Lee, wide receivers Nelson Agholor and Brandin Cooks and guard Kyle Long the past five drafts.

And while things will come into focus as the offseason progresses and teams plug roster holes via free agency, here’s an ultra-early projection for how the first round could shake out based on current needs.

The final draft order is not set. The four teams still in the playoffs are currently listed by their records.
