Countdown to the draft: 100 days

SHARE Countdown to the draft: 100 days

Pitchers and catchers are less than a month away from reporting to spring training … but more importantly the countdown to the NFL draft is at 100 days.

That gives you enough time for, what, a few dozen mock drafts to enjoy, study or just plain mock.

The bowl season the pro scouts are most interested in, the all-star games, is heating up. The East-West Shrine game will be played Saturday in Houston. Senior Bowl practices begin next week in Mobile, Ala., leading into the game Jan. 26. The Texas vs. The Nation game will be held Feb. 2 in El Paso.

Teams are beginning to refine their scouting, paring lists down and taking closer looks at players. The real information being sought is the medical evaluations which come out of the combine next month in Indianapolis.

100 days to go until the Miami Dolphins go on the clock with the No. 1 pick.
