Vote: SportsNation NFL Mock Draft

SportsNation

The first round of the NFL draft is the biggest sports event of the year that doesn't involve anything more athletic than walking up a few steps and shaking hands with Paul Tagliabue. But the selection extravaganza offers fans a chance to talk football and dream of better things for their favorite team.

In the days leading up to the draft, we put each team on the clock and asked you to make the pick. After nearly 1.5 million votes were cast, we ended up with an interesting look at the first round as SportsNation views it. Will the Jets really stun all the experts and take Vince Young? Will Mario Williams slip to the 49ers? And could names like Kamerion Wimbley and Manny Lawson possibly slip out of the first round? We'll find out this weekend.

Got something to say about the picks? Sound off here!
