I seem to have the reputation of a pessimist in the Twitter-community and such, and frankly, and can’t disagree with that assumption. I was thrown into the pit of Rex Ryan and Ed Reed’s labyrinth last year before I was ready to intake such ridiculousness. Yet here I sit today, as a sad and withering Jet fan, able to say that even I have a realistic dream mock draft that wold solve all of my problems.
I know, it’s crazy to think that there are actually some prospects who I really like. In this mock, I focused on maintaining a realistic approach and focusing on value. You won’t find a pick where the player will without a doubt be gone beforehand. I’ve assembled twelve picks that are incredibly realistic but still would make me bounce off the walls on Draft Day. In fact, I would say that at least three quarters of these prospects are ones that I would label as “My Guys,” which is a category some draftniks use to define players they latch onto because they believe in their value and ability to such an extent.
