We've done this draft for one, two, three, four... uh, wow. We've done this for five years! In previous mock drafts, I took Justin Harrell in 2007, Matt Forte in 2008, Mark Sanchez in 2009 (it was later changed to Ziggy Hood after the Jay Cutler trade forced a re-draft; Sanchez went to the Vikings), and Charles Brown in 2010.
Not bad, right! My only busted pick was Justin Harrell, which I made up for by taking Ziggy Hood two years later.
The way this works is the site managers from the 32 SBN NFL sites draft for their team in the first two rounds. MtD is running three picks a day (9 a.m., 12 p.m., and 3 p.m.). The draft will take the weekends off. There are no trades in this mock and you'll get to instantly grade the pick.
When pick no. 22 gets close, I will solicit advice from the community as to who I should pick. And, yes, the opinions of this community will factor into my decision.
The draft is already through pick no. 6. After the jump, check out who has been taken already.
