YDKF Mock Draft - let me know your thoughts
The 2012 YDKF Mock Draft - youdontknowfootball.com
I was picking for Da Bears.
right, before I say ANYTHING about this, you have to realise that living in Singapore and with the first round being in the early hours for me I had to submit a big draft board. Martin was a LONG way down the board but obviously not far enough (this mock started a week or so when his stock was higher too). I'm certainly not set on this pick and if i had the chance to change, i would have taken Mercilus (no trades allowed, I would have definitely sought a trade had the board panned out like it did). With hindsight, not the best start to the draft, although I'm open to drafting LT early if the value is there
Anyhow, excuses aside, I'd be interested in your comments (on all teams not just the Bears). Given how the draft panned out, i dont think i did too bad of a job. I'd have liked to have got safety help earlier but think I hit good value in most rounds outside of the first. I can see the Martin / C Williams comparisons and i'm not convinced he is LT material but, all in all, i like how it panned out.
Doing a mock like this is hard because you cant just say who you'd take in each round, cherrypicking the value. With that said, it was fun and as far as UDFA go, I'd have brought in Donte Paige-Moss and Case Keenum as neither went drafted. I like Paige-Moss's skillset and barring his injury, i think he'd defintiely get drafted. Keenum could compete in camp with Luke McCown. We have our back-up in Campbell and Keenum could be a value project pick.
