2015 NFL Mock Draft: FINAL EDITION

April 28, 2015

For the last 12 months, I’ve enjoyed my reign as champion of the Huddle Report’s annual Mock Draft competition.  But like all good things, this too must come to an end. For now. Like any quality champion, I won’t give up my title without a fight.  This Mock Draft is my official, title-defense submission, and while it’s hard to have an extreme level of confidence in a project that is inherently based on guessing,…


2015 FRG NFL Mock Draft

The 2015 NFL Mock Draft season is in full swing, with some analysts going so far as to post seven rounds of picks!  I bow to them, as it’s an endeavor that gives me the shakes.  That said, and since I am the defending Huddle Report Mock Draft Champion, it’s time that I publish my first complete, first-round mock.  Without further delay… 2015 NFL Mock Draft, Round 1 1.  Tampa Bay…

Luke Easterling of DraftBreakdown.com recently posted his four round 2015 NFL Mock Draft.  An excerpt appears below, with a link to the complete post.  Enjoy! With the Senior Bowl in the rear-view mirror, it’s time for another mock draft. This time, I’ll go quite a bit deeper with a four-round projection. Obviously, plenty will change over the next few months regarding player value and team needs, but here’s my take…


2015 NFL Draft content coming soon!

Bob Stoops doesn’t like November Mock Drafts

“All you have to do is go back the last two, three years and look at how accurate the mock drafts has been at this time of year. They’re about 20 percent,” Stoops said, according to kansascity.com. “Those guys have got no idea. That’s just pure entertainment.” (via NFL.com)…READ MORE.

Brugler pegs Mariota as No. 1 pick in 2015 NFL Draft in early Mock

Dane Brugler of CBSSsports.com recently released his early 2015 NFL Mock Draft, and to his credit, he accurately suggested that it would be easier to predict winning lottery numbers than how next year’s first round of the NFL Draft will look.  That said, Brugler is as good as it gets in the industry so it’s worth a look at how he sees the first 32 picks at this point in…

2014 NFL Mock Draft: FINAL EDITION

May 5, 2014

We have arrived.  The time has come to publish FRG Scouting’s FINAL Mock Draft of the 2014 NFL Draft season.  And while the previous four mocks have been fun, this is the one that I really care about.   This Mock Draft will be submitted to TheHuddleReport.com’s official contest for accuracy, so with that in mind, some housekeeping. 1.  This Mock Draft is based on what I think will happen,…


2014 NFL Draft: A Big Picture View

It seems pretty clear that the general perception is that this year’s NFL Draft is far greater than 2013’s, both from a talent standpoint and with the drama and intrigue at the top. There are better…
