If You Really Enjoy Mock Drafting...

Wthout having other teams drafting around you as context, a mock is pretty meaningless.

Try "FanSpeak's On The Clock" if you haven't already. You can choose a pre-draft ranking that the AI will use, and pick which team you will draft for. The only problem is no allowance for trades, so everyone picks where they are.

My latest was odd. I picked against CBS Sports.

1) Dupree. I picked him over Gregory and Harold.

2) Melvin Gordon. I wanted more defense, but he was too much value to pass on.

3) Tre' Jackson. Best player available and a position of need.

4) Anthony Chickillo

5) Chris Conley

6) Derrick Lott

7a) Zach Zenner. I took him as a FB. Shanahan uses a FB, and I heard Gil Brandt go on about him for 20 minutes. Gil sold me on him.

7b)Kyle Brindza. Matt Bryant isn't getting any younger. No one drafted here is likely to matter, but a little kicker competition can't hurt, and this kid sounds like he's pretty good.

So try it and see what you come up with.

Drafttek usually yields best results for me.

1. Beasley

2. Preston Smith

3. Stephone Anthony

4. David Cobb

5. Byron Jones

6. Erik Rowe

7. Darren Waller

7. Jalston Fowler

Draft was so impossible I memorized it

Very unrealistic. I suggest you try Fanspeak and use the CBSSports big board or maybe Scar's. No way you will get Anthony in the third or Rowe in the sixth.

I agree, thats what im highlighting..once you figure out the "system" of the draft boards in these mock drafts you can yield the best results every time.. unless they have updated drafttek on fanspeak within the last month i know for certain i can either get vic beasley or shane Ray round 1, and that stephone anthony will last until my pick in round 3.. Preston Smith, however does not.. So i always get Best edge rusher available pick one, followed by Preston Smith pick 2, then Stephone Anthony pick 3.. the last 5 picks i play around with, because in my opinion, after those first 3 picks that draft is already won in my opinion.. I will try the cbs sports big board as you suggested..

Fanspeak is trash. Very unrealistic. Jameis Winston fell to #31 when I did it.

There are almost a dozen different big boards you can use. FanSpeak isn't trash: the big board YOU chose to draft against was trash.

Try again with a better board as opposition.

What happened to the site? It was good last year, but now it usually times out around 3rd rd. I'm on my phone when it happens I don't get on my desktop as much as I used to.

No problems for me, but that's on my pc. I didn't even know it would work on my phone!

Ok, just did one with Drafttek.

1) Bud Dupree.

2) Bernardrick McKinney. Maxx Williams was available, and in retrospect I feel like I should have taken Maxx.

3) Duke Johnson. First mock he fell that far.

4) Tre' Jackson.

5, 6) Forgot who I ended up with in the 5th and 6th. Guys I hadn't heard of but were highest rated de and s.

7a) Zach Zenner. I'm excited at the idea of this kid at FB based solely on Gil Brandt's glowing review.

Did it a few times with different lists. Some had some very unrealistic scenarios, like Maxx Williams falling us in the third, I skipped those picks since that would never happen. This is my current favorite so far.

1) Randy Gregory - DE

2) Paul Dawson - ILB

3) Ali Marpet - G

4) Durrell Eskridge - S

5) Nick Marshall - CB

6) Blake Bell - TE

7a) Zach Zenner - RB

7b) Ryan Delaire - OLB

1) Randy Gregory-DE

2) Benardick McKinney-IL

3) Ameer Abdullah-RB

4) Jamil Douglas- OG

5) Ty Montgimery- WR

6) Nick Marshall- CB

7) didn't pick anyone. I just want it to be whoever Quinn thinks has the physical traits to be something in the NFL. Whether it's DL, CB, S, OL.

Definitely meant to take an rb in round 6 or 7 , but last second spotted Valles going undrafted!(Highly unrealistic). But Josh Robinson from MS state and Dreamius Smith both went undrafted in this scenario. Those would be my first two phone calls in order to get them in as UDFA

Had a very similar one earlier but I can't imagine Clive is there in the forth. Still took him and would be thrilled if we got him there, but I doubt it happens.
