Only added a few mock drafts this week, so we're up to 61 overall. Hopefully next week I'll be able to add a few more.

Quarterback is still the most selected position with 46 of the 61 overall selections, but Derek Carr is no longer the leader in the clubhouse for most selected. No, this week that title belongs to Johnny Mondo Delicious Ice Cream Football Manziel, who appears 18 times in these mock drafts, compared to 16 for Carr.  Blake Bortles and Teddy "Theodore" Bridgewater appear six times each.

Linebacker appears the second-highest number of times, but they now only account for nine of the 61 picks, with each player seeing their numbers go down this week. Anthony Barr now appears six times, with Khalil Mack making two appearances and C.J. Mosley appearing just once.

The cornerback position includes our one new face for this update, as TCU cornerback Jason Verrett appears for the first time. He, along with Justin Gilbert and Darqueze Dennard, give the cornerbacks four selections in this week's database.

Mike Evans is the lone remaining wide receiver with one selection, and Louis Nix remains in the mix at defensive tackle with one selection as well. Clemson's Sammy Watkins has dropped out of the database for this week.

Now, on to our graphics, both of which you can click to embiggen. First, this week's donut graph for the picks for just this week.

And now on to the "Jell-o salad" graph to depict the trends over the past few weeks.

And that's your Mock Draft Database update for this week. My apologies for the update being shorter than usual.
