Mock Draft Grades

1 post in this topic


Best drafter: Mike Mayock had the best score, edging out Todd McShay on the back of more near misses. In addition to his two hits, Mayock was off by one slot on 5 players, and 2-5 slots on 18 other picks. Coworker Daniel Jeremiah had, along with Luke Easterling, Mel Kiper, and Evan Silva the most correct picks, he nailed the first three picks and then Roquan Smith and Mike Glinchey. In the four years I’ve done this, Jeremiah is consistently the best. He took home top honors the first two years, and in the last two nobody had more correct picks. A former scout himself and plugged in around the league, he’s established himself as the best mock drafter.


Worst drafter: Doug Farrar missed out on his third straight title last year, and this year was saved only by Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus, who mocked eight players that didn’t go in the first round, most notably Maurice Hurst, who he had go fourth overall but went in the 5th round. Despite getting the #1 pick right, his top 10 was a disaster, along with Hurst 4th overall he had 2nd round draft picks Josh Jackson and Harold Landry go 6th and 9th overall, respectively, and Saquon Barkley fall to 10th. Ouch.

Hurst, along with Derrius Guice, are good example who is simply guessing and who has their ear to the league. Hurst fell due to serious health concerns, Guice to character issues. Hurst was only in four drafts, Guice was not a 1st rounder in half of them.
