NFL Mock Draft - NFL football teams fans know who to
pick by Vince Falcone
Figuring out an NFL mock draft is one of the things that NFL fans
just love to do. The fans know their football teams almost as good as
they know their own family. When it comes time to pick in the draft
they think they know what is best for their favorite football team.
ESPN : The Mock Draft Experts
The sportscasters on ESPN claim to be experts and for the most part
they are. The one thing that they don't take into account is how the
teams meetings with the players went. Sure they can pick the top
players in the draft and they do a very good job at it and I would
like to thank them for doing such a great job on the NFL mock draft.
Mel Kiper JR
Mel Kiper Jr is probably the best person on the planet at picking
selections on the NFL draft and most of the time he is right on the
money for what the football teams need. If the NFL team picks the
wrong player it is not his fault. He can't help it if the
coaches of the football team doesn't listen to him.
If he says that a linebacker from Nebraska should be the next pick
he is probably right and when the team takes a wide receiver from
Purdue he is fun to watch on television. Being an
fan I have seen this many times. Just a few years ago the Falcons had
a need for a defensive lineman and offensive lineman but when the
Falcons chose to pick the best available player it was running back
T.J. Duckett that was on the board.
This selection surprised many NFL mock draft experts. It surprised
the fans also since the Atlanta Falcons had just signed running back
Warrick Dunn for a lot of money in the off season. The NFL rumors on
some of the chat rooms were quite funny, they even had the Falcons
trading both running backs for a whole offensive line. The Falcons
knew what they were doing all along. The DVD running back's were doing
a great job in 2004. (Dunn, Vick, Duckett) Now it is 2008 and the
Falcons still need offensive line help.
NFL Draft Day
Every true football fan loves the NFL draft
but watching it on television could be a pain when your team doesn't
fill a need. What happens is you sit in front of the television for
weeks watching the NFL mock draft experts and they tell you who each
team is going to pick or who should draft.
Then there is a rumor of a draft day trade to screw up their
thinking or a team picks someone they weren't planning on drafting and
it throws your thinking off. What happened in the few weeks leading up
to the draft is You have become an expert at the NFL mock draft.
Of course the plans can get all screwed up when you start watching
the NFL combine from Indianapolis. With the extensive coverage from
the NFL network you get a chance to see how your choices are working
out prior to the draft.
