Obviously you can never really know what trades to predict, and sometimes you have a gut feeling when a team is on the clock over what you put in your mock. What did you think would happen as the 1st round progressed?

1. Dolphins- Jake Long
2. Rams- Chris Long
3. Falcons- Matt Ryan
4. Raiders- Darren McFadden
5. Chiefs- Glenn Dorsey
6. Jets- Vernon Gholston
7. Saints- Sedrick Ellis
8. Jaguars- Derrick Harvey
9. Bengals- Keith Rivers
10. Patriots- Jerod Mayo
11. Bills- Devin Thomas
12. Broncos- Chris Williams
13. Panthers- Chris Williams
14. Bears- Chris Williams
15. Chiefs- Branden Albert
16. Cardinals- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
17. Lions- Rashard Mendenhall
18. Ravens- Joe Flacco
19. Panthers- Jeff Otah
20. Buccaneers- Devin Thomas
21. Falcons- Brian Brohm
22. Cowboys- Mike Jenkins
23. Steelers- Rashard Mendenhall
24. Titans- Devin Thomas
25. Cowboys- Mike Jenkins
26. Texans- Duane Brown
27. Chargers- Kenny Phillips
28. Seahawks- Dustin Keller
29. 49ers- Chad Henne

13-CAR-Branden Albert X
14-CHI-Chris Williams
15-KC-Branden Albert
16-ARI-D.Rodgers-Cromartie
17-DET-Rashard Mendenhall X
18-BAL-Joe Flacco
19-CAR-Jeff Otah
20-TB-Devin Thomas if not then Jenkins X
21-ATL-Sam Baker
22-DAL-Felix Jones
23-PIT-Rashard Mendenhall
24-TEN-Devin Thomas X
25-DAL-Mike Jenkins
26-HOU-Antoine Cason X
27-SD-Antoine Cason

If you predicted that 1st round, your a winner by a mile and will have won the draft contest. Where did you post it because I want to see and admire it.

i was 8/31 in the first round...better then last year, but not great at all...this was a horrible year for mockers, because there was so many trades

I think they've listed how they predicted the draft as it progressed. Which is why they both have so many guys listed multiple times.

Jake Long, Chris Long, Matt Ryan, DMC, Dorsey, Gholston, Mayo, Chris Williams, Ryan Clady, Branden Albert, Felix Jones, Jeff Otah, Mike Jenkins, Kentwan Balmer, DRC, Branden Albert, Keith Rivers

So that 17/31, a lot better than I did last year and then I hit some late rounders like Geno Hayes, Josh Johnson, Dre Moore (ironically all Bucs)

yeah, this thread is about how you predicted the picks right before Goodell announced them.

Got 8 in the first round, the first 6 and then DRC and Felix Jones. The trades really messed my up. I after the trades were announced I knew the first 11 picks. The first one that I didn't expect was the Broncos not taking Albert.

Got 3 right in the second round but that's a crap shoot. Got a lot of the positions right and got two player to the correct team but wrong pick (Lee to GB and forgot the other one).

my pre draft mock was alright, obviously i didnt have albert so low, i had a wr or 2 in the 1st, and i didn't have Duane Brown, Baker, or the Titans pick up there. I didn't have a TE in the first. and i had Mendenhall to the Lions.

So really, i guess it wasn't to great, but as far as picking the picks when a team was on the clock, i did real well

I actually guessed that Ray Rice would be the pick right before we got him. Bit of a lucky guess, but Eric DeCosta did have some nice things to say about Rice and he also talked about how running back should be addressed pretty early.

I had about 5 right out of 252. It all went wrong when Atlanta passed on Glenn Dorsey. But that was pre draft predictions. As the draft was going on I say I predicted better than that though.

Right before Tampa took Josh Johnson I told my roommate that they would take him. 1/252.

I had Joe Flacco going #23 overall on Christmas. The reception I got suggested that it was unprecedented at that point.

I got the first six picks right. I got Clady and Chris Williams right. I got Kenny Phillips right.

I had Felix Jones to Dallas, but at #28....not #22.

1. Dolphins - Jake Long
2. Rams - Chris Long
3. Falcons -Ryan
4. Raiders - McFadden
5. Chiefs - Dorsey
6. Jets - Not Gholston, I got the feeling they'd pass. Trade with NO was my gut.
7. Patriots - Trade down, Saints take Ellis
8. Ravens - Trade, I was looking at Philly. Jacksonville was obviously Harvey
9. Bengals - Mendenhall
10. Patriots - Mayo. I was absolutely positive on this one.
11. Bills - Devin Thomas
12. Broncos - Clady
13. Panthers - Stewart
14. Bears - Williams
15. Lions - Mendenhall, Chiefs - Albert
16. Cardinals - Cromartie
17. Lions - I realized they didn't want Mendenhall, but I was completely unsure. I was expecting something ridiculous, and I was kind of right.
18. Texans - I knew they'd trade. Ravens - Flacco, obviously,
19. Eagles - Otah, Panthers - at first Henne, but I changed to Otah at the last second.
20. Buccaneers - Mendenhall or Thomas
21. Redskins - I was expecting a trade, certainly not with Atlanta. For Atlanta, I was thinking Jenkins, though I would have eventually gotten Baker if I had another minute to realize he was the only LT left.
22. Cowboys - Felix Jones
23. Steelers - Mendenhall
24. Titans - Chris Johnson
25. Seahawks - trade, Cowboys - Jenkins
26. Texans - Duane Brown. Called it in my mock, actually
27. Chargers - trade, but when the pick came in I believe I guessed
Ty Johnson
28. Seahawks - Keller
29. 49ers - Lofton, though only because I stopped paying attention and didn't realzie Balmer was there
30. Packers - Flowers, Jets - Keller
31. Giants - Phillips
