Now that we've done all the positional pre-draft podcasts with our good friend Greg Cosell of NFL Films, ESPN's NFL Matchup, and Yahoo! Sports, we thought it would be fun and interesting to try something we hadn't done before -- a mock draft podcast in which Greg and myself put on our GM hats and tried to reconcile talent with need. The basic philosophy of this audio mock was outlined by Greg in his most recent online mock for Shutdown Corner -- these picks are not about projecting what teams will do; they're based on our own player ratings and where we think teams are lacking in certain positions. (Note: I had to flip a couple picks from the audio mock, because my Bills pick was just bizarre in retrospect).

Yahoo! Sports has learned that Revis has agreed to a six-year, $96 million contract.
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has received permission to visit and undergo a physical with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The Buccaneers being able to meet with Revis and check out his surgically-repaired left knee could expedite a long-anticipated trade between the two clubs. The Jets likely would not allow Revis to meet with the Buccaneers, or any other team, if a deal were not within reach. Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports a trade between the Jets and the Buccaneers has been agreed to , and the Buccaneers and Revis have agreed to a basic contract. According to Cole, a deal could be finalized tonight or on Monday. [Also: Deadline passes with no offers for Giants WR Victor Cruz ] Any deal this year involving Revis was likely happen before the first-round of the 2013 NFL draft begins on Thursday. Recent reports have the Jets looking for a 2013 first-round pick out of the deal with the Buccaneers, who would then look to sign Revis to a long-term contract that could average in the $14-16 million per season range. The Buccaneers ranked 32nd in pass defense last season and adding Revis, who is arguably the league's top cornerback, figures to dramatically improve their secondary. Meanwhile, the Jets would have two picks in the Top 15 (No. 9 and No. 13) in the 2013 draft, which would allow first-year GM John Idzik to begin re-tooling the Jets into a playoff-caliber team, much in the same way that Idzik's former team, the Seattle Seahawks, did with two first-round picks (No. 6 and No. 14, used on Russell Okung and Earl Thomas) in 2010 NFL draft, the first draft under the John Schneider and Pete Carroll.
