Default Attention: All Mock Drafters

Time to grade your mock.

1st, How many 1st round picks were correct (I had 21 of 32)
2nd, How many exact picks (spot, team, player) I had 5.

21 of 32 and 5 exact sucks ass, so I expect many if not most of you to trounce me.

well i didnt exactly do a mock but i did call w. reid as els return replacement 3 weeks ago (i thought the steelers would target him for day 2 though). i called the trade with the giants the day before, (with holmes being the most likely target if he was there, after learning of whites failed test) and accurately predicted that if the steelers wanted robinson they would have to use their final 3rd round pick on him. pretty good bold predictions on my part. brickashaw, hawk, davis, wimbley, and hill all went where i thought they would. pretty much everything else was a suprise.

I got 24 1st round picks right.

Thats about the end of the good news.

I only got 2 further player/team/position picks totally correct.

I had some for the right team and some at the right place.

I think 5 exact is pretty good as the trading ability of teams means you would have to be prescient to get many more than that.

Day 1 in review


By Gil Brandt
NFL.com Senior Analyst


NEW YORK (April 30, 2006) -- First of all, I think all of the teams did a very good job. Every player drafted on Day 1 was at the Combine. If my ratings mean anything, 85 of my top 100 players were selected already.
