What do you guys think about the massive amounts of mock drafts every year?
[FYI - http://www.hailredskins.com/MockDraft.htm keeps a good list of who mock drafts have the Skins taking]
Kiper, McShay, and a host of other put out multiple mock drafts leading up to the draft with changes being made after the combine and after pro days. The funniest thing is that guys "stock" can "drop" in between without doing anything football related.
The below information is from (http://www.thehuddlereport.com/Free/mockdraftscoring.shtml)
Each pick can score 1 or 3 points. Here is how:
Player in round = 1
(P)layer in round 1 + (M)atched to team 2 = 3 points

So looking at Mel Kiper's 2010 mock draft, he only correctly mocked 10 players to their appropriate team. Despite that he accurately picked 28 out of the 32 guys picked in the first round. Yet and still when he says Cam Newton to the Redskins some fans begin to get all anxious and such. Thoughts?
