Recapping the first two Mocking The Draft community mocks

Since Mocking the Draft has kind of gone under the radar with the changes to SB Nation that came about last year, I thought I'd shine a spotlight on what they do - I don't see very many Rumblers hanging out there, which is a shame! This also can be a good way to show how player stock changes as events like the Senior Bowl and Combine happen and free agency changes team needs.

There were two mock drafts done this offseason. The first one was a two round, no-trade mock on January 12th, right after coach firing and hiring started happening. The second one was a three round, no-trade mock yesterday. There will also be a full-fledged seven round mock draft, complete with trades, war rooms, and analysis coverage by top draftniks, coming up in the days before the real draft, hosted by Turf Show Times.

So this is a sort of open thread to talk about the draft (not just QBs, but any prospects you see in the draft, and ones that interest you).

I'll be the GM in the upcoming 7 round mock, but I'll need your help to identify players to target. Is there a good guard who might be available in round 3? Could a safety fall into the fourth who would be able to start next to Byrd? Let us know!

And if you are interested in being part of the war room for that draft (Tuesday and Wednesday April 23 and 24), comment here so that I can put together a fanpost and make the big board available as the days approach!

Also, let us GMs know how we did in the first two mocks. Any reaches (I know a few of you will want to complain about that)? Any great picks? Anyone we missed? Tell us!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of
