I mock you with my horrible draft.



So let's face it, I'm not a draft guy. I'm also not a bean counter. I'm OK with theorycraft, but in the case of NFL mock drafts, there are just so many moving parts involved that I'm at a loss as to how anyone derives meaning from the exercise.

But who cares? It's something fun to do for those who do it, and the extra research time learning about a wide range of players, how they fit into our schemes, etc., is awesome, and I'm all for that.

I just don't take the time to do it. Anyway, without further ado, I set out to create the WORST mock draft yet on BTB, and I think I may have succeeded in many folk's eyes:

(copy/pasted from fanspeak)

16 QB JOHNNY MANZIEL, TEXAS A&M

47 G DAVID YANKEY, STANFORD

78 DE DEMARCUS LAWRENCE, BOISE STATE

115 S TRE BOSTON, NORTH CAROLINA

146 DE KAREEM MARTIN, NORTH CAROLINA

206 WR SHAQ EVANS, UCLA

208 DT KERRY HYDER, TEXAS TECH

215 WR CODY HOFFMAN, BYU

A lot of these picks were based on having read a review, remembered a name from someone's post here, and possibly a cursory check at some stats/reviews to see if they were even close to a scheme fit. Very cursory.

Have fun with it! I do like throwing darts blind, so that's about what you guys got. I would certainly like to know if anyone thinks this mostly accidental draft strategy has any merit =P
