James Mirtle joins Dimitri Filipovic to help conduct a preliminary mock draft ahead of Wednesday night’s highly anticipated expansion festivities.

Rather than going through the picks in alphabetical order, we instead lumped each of the 30 teams into five separate categories based on what type of assets they’re providing Vegas with:

5:06 Teams with side deals reportedly in place
18:31 Teams with no real appealing options available
26:29 Teams with the one obvious selection that stands alone
47:02 Teams with an established veteran vs. younger alternative
55:54 Teams with a number of different options to choose from
