Cue up "It's the Final Countdown" by ‘Europe' (and picture Gob and his act for my fellow Arrested Development fans), because this is my final and definitive 2013 mock draft.
OK, so it's actually one of literally thousands (or more likely millions) of mock drafts that will continue to flood the Internet between now and Thursday.
With the new Collective Bargaining Agreement in place and the talent in this year's prospects being so comparable from position to position, this has been a particularly crazy draft to mock.
Picture yourself standing in one of those booths where you have 30 seconds to grab as much cash as you can while it blows all around you. The timer goes off and you get to see just what amount of money you were able to latch on to. That's how I'll be feeling come Sunday night when tallying the number of correctly chosen draft picks.
With the lack of those two or three ‘must have' talents, the proliferation of rumors, smoke screens and trade possibilities surrounding this draft, if I hit on five then I am smiling like the butchers dog.

MOCK 2.0 - Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
3. OAKLAND - Sharrif Floyd , DT, Florida: The Raiders need major help along their defensive line, and Floyd can step right in to bring a solid interior presence with huge upside.
MOCK 2.0 - Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
4. PHILADELPHIA - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma: Johnson has been on the fast track up draft boards since the combine and is the athletic prototype offensive tackle to excel in new coach Chip Kelly's offense.
MOCK 2.0 - Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
5. DETROIT - Ziggy Ansah, DE, Brigham Young: The Lions pass on Dee Milliner for the athletic, pass rushing force and rely on the depth at cornerback in this year's draft to...
