Mocking the Free Agents

We spend all spring posting mock drafts, trying to predict where prospects will go in the first round. Why not do the same for free agents, especially when we’re going to have quite a flurry of moves made in a small window that is this week.

This is not necessarily predicting where some of this year’s top free agents will land, but just picking destinations that make sense, at least to me. Many of the top free agents such as Eric Weddle, Quintin Mikell, Shaun Ellis, Doug Free, Tyson Clabo, Santonio Holmes, etc. are not listed here simply because I believe their best destinations are to stay where they are.

Many of these projections aren’t exactly breaking new ground, as they have been moves speculating for weeks/months. But I think there are a few surprises in store for some of these guys. There is even one signing for the Falcons that makes sense. Can you guess who?
