Horse Tracks: Denver Broncos draft week

New, comments

Which way will the Denver Broncos go in the 2017 NFL Draft? Chances are, that mock you just read had it all wrong.

Do you have mock draft fatigue yet?

Some of us start looking at mock drafts as soon as the Broncos are eliminated from post season play. Of course, at that stage, mocks serve merely as a reminder that a new season is on the way regardless of which way the playoffs go. They're an opportunity to prematurely tap into the hope that comes from drafting a stellar young prospect.

What kills me is that despite all the mocks that are generated, with trades, without trades, expert and novice alike, every last one is guaranteed to be wrong. Sure, they may get a few players right, but usually within the first five picks of the draft everything goes out the window. It's damn near the only thing in life that's okay to be consistently wrong year after year and all the time.

...and yet we keep coming back for more. Isn't it great?
