    I made 3, nothing too complicated. I wanted to get an idea of what players are available.

    I used this site: http://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/draft.php which gave me a simple simulator w/ no unrealistic trades (in fact, there aren't any). I used the "big boards" of Optimum Scouting, Fanspeak, and Walter Football b/c I have no idea how they see players. This gave me the most random players on 3 different ranks.

    I took players based on ranking, best available, and need. I also tried to make some perceived draft "blunders" or "head scratchers" in cliche terms.

    Mock 1 (Using Optimum Scouting's "big board")

    1. Sammy Watkins- WR, Clemson (Texans took Teddy Bridgewater 1st overall FYI).
    1a. Aaron Donald- DT, Pittsburgh (all the top CBs were gone)
    2. Ryan Shazier- OLB, Ohio State
    3. Tre Mason- RB, Auburn
    4. Tyler Larsen- C, Utah State
    5. Cornelius Lucas- OT, Kansas State
    6. Tajh Boyd- QB, Clemson
    6a. Telvin Smith- S, Florida State
    7. Victor Hampton- CB, South Carolina
    7a. Boo Boo Gates- S, Bowling Green (I love this name)
    7b. Ethan Westbrooks- DE, West Texas A&M

    So this doesn't fill a lot of needs, just reloads on positions of strength, and has the potential for starters on defense when Kendall Langford and Jo-Lonn Dunbar leave in a year or 2.

    Mock 2 (Using Fanspeak's "big board")

    1. Jake Matthews- OT, Texas A&M (Texans took Teddy Bridgewater 1st again here)
    1a. Darqeuze Dennard- CB, Michigan State (funny thing Greg Robinson was still available)
    2. Marquise Lee- WR, USC
    3. Terrence Brooks- S, Florida State
    4. Bishop Sankey- RB, Washington (here's one of those "head scratchers")
    5. Tyler Larsen- C, Utah State
    6. Ryan Carrethers- DT, Arkansas State
    6a. Connor Shaw- QB, South Carolina
    7. Jalen Saunders- WR, Oklahoma
    7a. Kevin Pierre-Lewis- OLB, Boston College
    7b. Marqueston Huff- S, Wyoming

    Mock 3 (Using Walterfootballs "big board")

    1. Sammy Watkins- WR, Clemson (Texans took Blake Bortles 1st)
    1a. Taylor Lewan- OT, Michigan (Darqueze Dennard, Aaron Donald, Anothony Barr, Louis Nix all available)
    2. Kyle Fuller- CB, Virginia Tech
    3. Tre Mason- RB, Auburn
    4. Anthony Johnson- DT, LSU
    5. Aaron Murray- QB, Georgia
    6. Vinny Sunseri- S, Alabama
    6a. Kevin Pierre-Lewis- LB, Boston College
    7. Aaron Colvin- CB, Oklahoma (this dude tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl)
    7a. Trey Millard- FB, Oklahoma (I didn't realize Mike McNeill signed elsewhere)
    7b. Brock Vereen- S, Minnesota

    So there it is. No more mocks from me. :later:

    I made 3 different ones using the website. What's there to be confused about?

    Over whether these are prospects you prefer or purely off the website's rankings.

    If I had to choose it would be mock two. Mock one leaves a lot to be desired.

    Yes mock 2 take out Lee and insert Jordan Matthews even though I'm not crazy about Connor Shaw, but he does have some Don Strock in him.
