View Full Version : OK - who do you think produces the most accurate Mocks ?

Because Saturday morning I'm going to print hard copies of these mocks
for future reference. Why hard copies - I wouldn't put it past some of these guys to alter their mock after the Draft - call me paranoid if you want.
I just want to see who knows what they are talking about in a Draft that is
difficult to predict - not too many "can't miss" prospects this year.
I need one of the Kiper mock right (though I think his publicity is better that his performance) ? I should also get Gosselin's mock 'cause some say he is one of the best. Who else ?

I think nfldraftcountdown.com, has has picked all of our number ones and I'm pretty sure he had us moving up for Babins last year or taking him in the second.

I vote for ourlads. You gotta remember with him though, he is projecting where guys should go based on their rankings. He doesn't try to project personalities in various front offices. He evaluates tallent very well. Not accurate on draft day but it's a pretty good barometer on who's reaching and who's not. My vote for the worst is Mell Kiper. He is a ledgend in is on mind. He hits and misses more than a cross eyed carpenter with dsylexia. I think he guesses way to much. Judges tallent pretty good though. The best ever was Bushbaum. If Bushbaum gave a guy a 9.0, you could take it to the bank. The guy was a player.

I really need to pull out my 2004 newsletter and see how their rankings played out.

The most accurate last year was NFL Draft Countdown. They got the Dunta pick right, but so did others. But they had us taking Babin in round 2, though we actually traded up late 1st to get him. No one else that I know of ever had us taking Babin.

They currently have us taking Cadillac Williams.

Historically Gosselin from the Dallas Morning News has the most accurate final mock year-in, year-out.

Gosselin has the most accurate draft day mocks, but Scott Wright of NFLDraftCountdown earned my respect last year when he was the only "expert" who had us taking Babin at 27...
