“John’s” Pick:

In honor of all the mock drafts, and in absence of all post-game chart questions/conversations, tell us which vegetable you would draft with the 3rd pick of the first round and/or which fruit you would select with the 9th pick of the first round.

Note: There are, apparently, approximately 2,000 types of fruits in the world alone. Use your own discretion in determining the number of eligible flora/fauna.
