Mock Drafts are nothing more than a roll of the dice or a “weather predicting device”. NO ONE IS GOOD AT IT, but eveyone’s a so-called “expert.”  It’s more of a muck than a mock, and it’s not an art or science…

I’ve been making my MOCK (muck) drafts for 15+ years and I’m usually VERY wrong ( and with a lot of preparation, film study and analysis too).  I’m no better or worse than any PRO (like Todd McShay, Mike Mayock or my favorite Mel Kiper Jr.), but it’s a lot of fun guessing/predicting and seeing who’s going to be the new rookie on your favorite team…

Trades can usually screw up a mock draft board, same with odd mis-picks (like 2nd or 3rd round talent being picked way too early).

…anyways, here’s my version of this years 2012 “muck” MOCK DRAFT (first FIFTY)  …and “face down in the muck!” (to quote a famous movie) – TBL
