Preface: I asked JBond if I could post a link to their mock and he said it was okay. If it's not, delete this.

I thought this was kind of funny and figured I would share it. They have Clay Matthews, Aaron Maybin, Josh Freeman and Tyson Jackson falling out of the first. And, no, I didnt screw up, they literally forgot to do pick 32... enjoy.

haha, i think its the same if not very similar (could be two different guys) to the one theypublished in the magazine. i was shocked to see all of the omissions that you listed from the 1st round, including the steelers pick. haha

Michael Oher would make me so happy. If he does fall to the Vikings he would be an absolutely incredible pick and I hope I get to see it happen. It would be a great birthday gift.

The Sporting News is very quirky, keep that in mind.

That is god-awful for Denver, yeesh.

This is by far one of the most god awful drafts I have ever seen, and this is by a sponsored site... WTF!

Wow. I'm speechless.

I can kinda see that Pats pick though.

as you read the other rounds you just kind of think to yourself, "what in the hell?"

I was in the book store today, about to buy this (I've bought every other draft mag, so why not)...just so happened to flip to this mock...threw it down and screamed in horror...ran out of the store....

That's probably the nice way to say it. SN sucks.

I didn't really pay too much attention to their mock until now, but I've been checking out their rankings.

They really dig doing their own thing over there.

i like how the steelers have a 2nd round pick but left entirely out of the 1st round. Pittsburgh wasnt caugh cheating like someone i know last year ;)

Mark Sanchez is their #1 prospect... overall.

The Bronco's picks are easily the most puzzling thing about that.

Aaron Curry is the perfect SLB for us

I seriously want to know if they just had a monkey throw darts at players.
Draft a TE and an OT for the Broncos?
Especially OT, when the Broncos had arguably the best OL in the NFL last year and both OT's played at a Pro Bowl level. But sure, why the heck not draft another one that won't play!
And TE? BAH

Id wait til the 2nd to get Lil Animal for the Giants..... Lets bank that his poor combine will hurt his OUTSTANDING in game play stats (throughout his whole career) cause Id LOOOOOVE to have this kid in the 2nd

Love the Cowboys draft LOL, but it's pretty terrible in general

BeerBaron
04-21-2009, 08:02 PM
Austin Collie in the 2nd round? Nate Davis to the Colts in the 2nd round?

Thats just reading further into it....I really can't go any further than that, sheeshh..

BeerBaron
04-21-2009, 08:04 PM
Also, they have Lydell Sargent being draft.....haha.

#28 is missing as well. WTF is this?

Brandon Tate at #35 LULZ

They debate long and hard between Tate and Harvin, but Tate is more of a physical inside receiver

I'd be happy with Tyson Jackson at #43 though haha

I didnt know Filia Moala was a first round prospect...thats odd

Atleast they don't have Everette Brown going 1st anymore. So it Is a step in the right direction

Wow, that is horrible. But I'd be ecstatic with the first day from a Vikings fans perspective. Oher, Vontae Davis(although I'm not a fan of his, 2nd round is great value and worth the risk), but I guess they just decided to skip random picks as the Vikings have no 3rd round pick(it just skips over it, as I see that they did with other picks) and the 5th and first 7th round picks aren't anything to get excited about, but I'd love to get Pryor in the 7th.

I noticed that Ziggy Hood had apparently gone undrafted. I clicked on him, and it seems he was the invisible pick #32 to the Steelers. I still don't think that's a very good pick for the Steelers.

Dude, we got caught spying on other teams. No Ziggy Hood drafted, no Steelers :(

It's been done ;)

Seriously though, the NFL realized you had the Baby God LaMarr Woodley on your team already, realized it was unfair already, and took away the pick. They thought you might have a chance at Brandon Graham and knew that the universe would implode if they were ever on the field at the same time.

Sporting News is trying to alter their mock, that's why it's screwed up a bit.

I know for sure they had Ziggy to the Colts two days ago.

That's a pretty killer Packers draft.

1. BJ Raji
2. Aaron Maybin
3a. Michael Johnson
3b. Phil Loadholt
4. Chase Coffman
5. Mysteriously missing from the mock
6a. Sebastian Vollmer
6b. Juaqin Iglesias
7. Matt Shaughnessy

Yeah, especially because those first three guys have first round grades!
ALso I believe Sporting news graded Unger as a 7th round pick

I'll have whatever theyre smoking.

Pettigrew and Britton...that is worse than the steelers having no pick

Sporting News made it up to the Broncos for mocking them Pettigrew by gift-wrapping them Scott McKillop in the 7th round.

Larry English seems possible for the Falcons, but I'm not a huge fan of short, undersized, not overly athletic defensive ends from non big 6 conferences.

Eh.

It's a contrarian mock, but the biggest problem with mock drafts is that "at some point, pretty much everybody is just saying the same thing." Since the primary value of mock drafts is "entertainment", why not do an outside-the-box one? I mean, crazy things happen in the real draft every year. Why make a mock where everything makes sense?

I'd love Oher and VDavis! Too bad they completely left out our 3rd round pick. Fail.

Welcome to Cleveland Josh Freeman!1111

As ridiculous as the whole scenario is, I'd take him in a second at 50.
