If Mariota's knee stays healthy he will win the Heisman and go #1 in the draft.

My predictions:

Lots of over hyping of certain players while some players will get overlooked because reasons.

/But THAT guy right there is a football player!

Im not sure whats worse. That someone has already gone through this much trouble already or that Mel Kiper is furiously masturbating to this link as I type.

my prediction:

the Raiders, Browns and Bills will continue drafting guys in the top 10

the 32nd pick still won't belong to the Broncos

So... Raiders in the 6th round?

We all know you came from the "Arizona high school track and field: 2014" link, subby.

What's fun is when they review the picks from three years ago, and you see how many first round picks were total flops, and how many fourth- or fifth-round picks turned out to be solid starters.

It's so much more of a crap shoot than they want to admit.
 
2014-05-14 07:38:14 AM  
Knowing how unpredictable things are, most of those players may not even be drafted in the first round. We will see after the upcoming season.

How many more gheys will be drafted next year? We are on a slippery slope to homoeroticism in football. Next thing you know, men will be touching each other's read ends and showering together. Oh the humanity.

"It's never too early for a mock draft"

I dunno, it may be too early when you don't know the pick order (and therefore can't mock something up that could be said to remotely resemble accuracy, because teams draft by need as much as they draft best available) and don't know how many of these kids' football careers will end this year while they're still in school, for whatever reason. So, I'd say not knowing who's going to be IN the draft, as well as not knowing who's picking where means it might be too early for a mock.

I'm not saying that they are somehow a contender now, but picking the Vikings to be drafting higher than this year is really a stretch.  Hell, just putting in Cassel over Ponder/Freeman resulted in a 4-3 record last year, and that is before ditching an incompetent coaching staff.  7 first round draft picks in the last three years is going to start paying dividends.  Still too weak at LB, though.

And if that was actually OUR pick for the first round (no trades) I would be delieriously happy because it means we probably went to the playoffs...

Other than the first 3 picks, was any mock draft even close to right?  Granted, a lot of mock drafts did have the Vikings taking Bridgewater, just not at #32.  I'm looking forward to Teddy putting up 2 seasons of failure under center before we move on to the next QB of the future.

mock drafts are useless because of the trading of draft picks.  most mock drafts assume teams don't trade their draft picks, but that happens all the time.

Does anyone else hope that, due to linking a 35 piece slide show, subby dies of extreme pain inflicted by the stings from an assortment of exotic insects and jellyfish? Because I do

RIght-- subby was standing there with a gun at your head, forcing you to click through each and every page, and all that time wasted during this torturous exercise was time you could have better spent finding a cure for cancer.

If you're going to call him a Rutgers player, why not call him a Mankato High player or a Minnesota player or starting QB for the Dallas Cowboys? All four are pretty much the same level of truthiness.
 
2014-05-14 11:43:25 AM  
A) I didn't say he played for Rutgers, I said he attended Rutgers. 2) He was kicked off of the team not out of the university. Also) Game. Set. Match

May have been the dumbest mock draft I've ever seen.
 
2014-05-14 12:35:11 PM  
Mariota's not gonna be a first-rounder.  I think RGIII has soured teams on skinny running quarterbacks.  Liked the five 'Noles in the first round, but I don't think that's gonna happen either.

this.  i've long thought that a "post-draft" expert, a la kiper's pre-draft "expert" would be much more valuable.

I could see him going in the first round due to the lack of QBs.  I'd certainly put him ahead of Hogan (who, frankly, sucks).  But as a #1 pick?  No.  He doesn't read defenses well.  He's too reliant on designed runs.  Didn't play very well in the two big games Oregon had this year.  (And Stanford and 'Zona aren't exactly powerhouses, defensively.)  Unless Chip Kelly's picking first, he's not going to be first off the board.  Winston and perhaps Petty and Hundley will go ahead of him.

Five is probably reasonable for FSU.  Winston, Edwards, PJ Williams, maybe Darby, and one or both of Erving and Jackson.  One or two others could work their way in with monster years, but unlikely.

5 noles in the first round.... - Tre' Jackson might be the only reach, but he is a beast.  The others are most likely locks due to positions they play. QB, DE, DB, (big)Tackle.  All high NFL priority positions. Good DBs are particulary loved by the team of the Shield.

Exactly, it's impossible to say Kiper or McShay are good or bad based on how their mocks shook out, because one trade blows up the whole thing. But you CAN do an analysis of their player ratings. With predictable results: "Kiper and McShay have proven to be equally inefficient judges of talent over the past five years.  Neither expert's rankings were a particularly good predictor of how a player would perform compared to the rest of his class."

If you read the individual team coverage on ESPN, their writers did pretty damning well identifying the two or three picks the teams may draft compared to who they got. Steelers and Shazier, cardinals and Buchanon, as an example.

You sound like a slide show sympathizer. Do you love slide shows?
