NFL Mock Drafts Review

So now that the draft has ended, and the near endless mocks have come to a not so quiet death, I thought, "hey, why not review how members here at MHR did on their mocks, as well as guys from around the internet.

Well I did that, compiled that data into a table, and, well, that's that. I know accountability sucks, I make mistakes all the time and would rather they be swept under the rug, but hey, in a situation like this, it's more fun then embarrassing.

So the two big things I looked at were whether the person chose the right player, and whether that player was taken at the spot projected. So while this post lacks the usual girth of my other posts, who cares, less reading. So what I did was I went through the archive and recorded the last mock a person did, and record that number. Nick Cast also had a very useful post the day before the draft where he asked for members final mocks, and I took a number of mocks from there as well.

Review:

A few shockers here, the first was Nick, I expected more man, I loved your final mock, but it just didn't work out at all, I mean, you write for a draft site. Sigh, it's okay, worse things could happen, like, I don't know, having no socks or something. Okay, next up we have Sayre, our resident draft guru on MHR, who came in tied for 2nd with ultraclassic and some Bleacher Report dude who I don't care about. So Sayre, keep it up, 2nd is better then last, so well done. The surprise winner of this review was Jeremy, none draft-dude of the site, who had one and only one mock, and he tied with kimbertr. Now I don't think anyone was expecting this outcome, possibly not even styg, but hey, that's the draft for you people.

So there you have it. I really didn't do any mocks, mostly because I suck at them. I predicted Dareus a number of times, so I got screwed on my only guess. Either way, hope this was either entertaining or eye opening, depending on if you did well or not. Also, if you have a mock with a link that was either really good or really far off, I'd love it if you put it in the comments section.

Just a side note, I originally started this post as a league wide accountability for guys like Mayock or Mel Kiper Jr. But it turns out there is already a site that does it for you, so I'm not going to remake the wheel, and I used their formula for my table. The site is the Huddle Report, and it's pretty good if you want to see whose successful year in and year out. Dan Kadar, from Mocking the Draft, came in tied for 5th, and Sayre fared much better overall then he did for just the Broncos, ranking 24th out of the 121 draft gurus Huddle Report reviewed. A guy at the Dallas Morning News came in 1st, again, apparently more people need to read him, since 2007, he's been in the top 5 every time, and has the record for being most accurate over the whole period. Here are a few notables as well:

- Mayock (NFL Network): Tied for 10th best
- Kirwin (NFL Network): Tied for 21st
- Baldinger (NFL Network): Tied for 21st
- McShay (ESPN): Tied for 26th
- Kiper Jr. (ESPN): Tied for 26th
- Walter (Walter Football): Tied for 38th
- Brooks (NFL Network): Tied for 54th
- Lombardi (NFL Network): Tied for 62nd
