In lieu of another post discussing Dan Kadar's latest mock draft, I wanted to point out some truly excellent work done by SB Nation's Adam Stites. Stites compiled the picks from the first round of forty-eight "expert" mock drafts and created pie charts showing which players were most frequently mocked to a given NFL team. For example, here's the Texans' pie chart:

Cool, right? Stites will be updating the pie charts up through the first day of the 2016 NFL Draft, so you can check in to see how the thinking about fit between certain players and teams changes between now and then. In the meantime, you can find Stites' charts for every team by clicking here.

You ready for Roger Goodell to announce "With the 22nd pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select Ezekiel Elliott, running back from Ohio State" on April 28th yet?
