    Nice experiment, but these days, mocks assuming no trades aren't going to look anything like the real thing.

    I suppose it's a decent experiment in theorycraft though.

    Mocks like this by the writers usually result in the teams drafting for need. If you read the comments in the mock it usually says the pick fit a need.
    If you look at last years mocks they were way off.

    Good many of these mocks is just a writer looking at perceived needs and plugging in a player at a position. They don't take it to account if there is a backup player ready to step up. More so they don't consider the organization's long term plan. A player drafted this year might not be expected to start right away but will be counted on to start the next season when another player hits FA and not resigned.
    Like train wrecks mocks sell papers.
