The NFL is an ever evolving ecosystem in the offseason. 

Almost every offseason, four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Stefon Diggs posts some cryptic messages on social media, seemingly indicating a desire to be traded. Almost every year he stays put, and Diggs and the Bills act like his comments are no big deal. In 2024, he finally got traded as Buffalo sent him down south to the AFC South division champion Houston Texans

With pro days now in the rearview mirror, Washington Huskies quarterback and 2023 Heisman Trophy runner-up Michael Penix Jr. has seen his stock climb after posting a 40-yard dash time in the 4.5s, revealing athleticism as a runner that wasn’t put on display much in college. He now makes his debut in the Podell Mock Draft for version 5.0, the penultimate edition prior to the 2024 NFL Draft kicking off on Thursday, April 25. Take a look to see where he comes off the board and more.
