Mock Drafts

This actually is not a mock draft, but rather my thoughts on all the crazy mocks that float around the internet. There will most likely be several different sites all mocking different players to us. Many site will come to a consensus that player A is indeed a first round pick perhaps even a top 5 pick. Some analysts will surely say that player B is a 2nd or 3rd round grade. The problem here is most of these analysts and sites really don't have any clue IMO about where most NFL scouts and GMs rate said player. DaMonster was looked at as a top 5 pick and slid to number 81. Travis Frederick was looked at as a solid 3rd round guy and went at the end of the first round. Hankins was mocked as a top 20 pick and Pugh was a 2nd rounder. So clearly most of these sites we look at are all of base. Just because the consensus has certain players ahead of other guys does not mean that player will be better in the NFL. In any round it is possible to get a game changing player. Richard Sherman was 5th rounder. Does that mean its more likely than first round pick, absolutely not, but there's always a chance. All the accolades in the world and awards won in college won't make you succeed in the NFL. Sometimes the underdog or the guy not as physically talented as the "1st round" talent ends up being the better player because his drive to succeed is unprecedented. Take every pick and mock with a grain of salt, and realize its just a mock, cuz we all are just killing time until August anyways.
