Okay, for you guys that pay attention to these off-seasons and drafts a lot, is there a guy that does a mock draft every year that is respected and consistently has a high percentage of correctness? In other words, who are the respected mock drafters? This is my first draft and so far I enjoy the speculation. I'm really looking forward to the draft this year should be very interesting. Thanks!

Does there tend to be many trades in the first round?

have u ever watched a draft before?

The tendency is that their are no tendecies, different things happening each year....

If you've ever seen someone get a mock draft 100% correct through the 1st round i'll give them a million dollars....

They actually grade all the big writer's mocks after the draft and rank them in terms of how close each player was selected to where the journalist though.
I can't remember exactly how long, but Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News has been number 1 for at least 3 years and one of them broke the record for closeness to the actual draft. This is because he has been around a while and is close to many sources at every team
He brought out his first mock draft yesterday and has us taking Leodis McKelvin

Mocks become useless because no one knows how each individual team has players graded nor do they know team's motives going into the draft. Most mocks seem to focus on a team's need for an upcoming season when a lot of teams draft with foresight into the future or simply go best player available. You also have teams that make off the wall reaches.

The only sure thing in the draft?

Back when Ditka was trying to get folks to bet him that Danny Weuffle would be there after the 1st hundred picks.

BTW, we had the 99th pick. ;)
