    Before the rookie slotting system, mock drafts never included trades because trades were so rare.

    Now, trades are incredibly common. Some still insist that mocks must assume no trades, while others say they should attempt to pick realistic results, and thus must include trades. What do you think?

    :hellno:.

    I think maybe projecting Rams trade down from 2 is fine, but too many and it becomes wishful thinking.

    They can get ridiculous, but so can mocks without trades.

    They are just for fun anyway - so why not?
