Michael Floyd Continues to Soar, Patriots Focus on Improving Defense in Mock Draft 8.0There were some major changes in last week's mock draft, but the top-half of this edition stayed intact for the most part. However, things got a little more chaotic in the latter half, and as a result, the Patriots got two different picks yet again.

The first two picks have been set in stone for weeks, and the biggest drama now comes with the third selection, which the Vikings would be wise to try to shop. Yet, it wouldn't be a bad consolation if they managed to land a franchise-caliber left tackle. That type of drama should be in play all the way up to draft night.

For now, let's roll out Mock Draft VIII.
