I think I remember your mock for some reason.Too bad luck isn't coming out .Though not far off with SF spot either.I hope we get locker though.We need a long term QB so bad We've been hurting since 2004.

Kudos to you for posting this. Most draftnicks and paid analysts want to bury their past work. I agree that your mock doesnt look as bad most you see made six months from the draft.

I like looking at these early mocks, because it shows just how fluid the draft process is. I remember everyone bagging on McShay for having an absurd 2009 mock made the day after the 2008 draft using only seniors, but those people dont have the guts to constantly remind all of us about their past mistakes.

Bengals picking 13 lol. Mallet could still go around that spot with Miami, Minnesota, and Washington still needing a QB.

Come on now! We want Von Miller in Philly! Lets go!

That's a surprisingly good draft for how far back you did it! Most of those guys are considered 1st rounders or have close to 1st round grades. Well done!
