Are there OTHER Mock Draft Simulator Websites?!?

7 posts in this topic

So....  now pinned at the top of this page is the one from FanSpeak.com...

 

And that's all fine...

 

But I get the sense that there's at least one more, maybe two...

 

There appears to be one that gives each of your picks a letter grade,  and there's one that also lets you do trades....

 

These might even be the same website??

 

Anyway....   I'm just curious if I can get someone kind enough to post some links to any other draft website of interest for me to take a look at....

 

While I like the one at FanSpeak,  I don't love it...

 

Because, frankly, a number of the player rankings strike me as nonsensical...

 

As I stated in another thread.....   if you have garbage in (programing)  you get garbage out (mock draft results)

 

Thanks for your help.......

First-pick.com is the only other one I've used. I'm sure there are others, but that's the one I know of. It requires you to set up a free account and login before you draft, but it's pretty decent.

 

The player ratings and projections are probably not what they should be, just like FanSpeak. I expect that updates and changes will be made as draft season progresses. We're just now having the college all star games, so it's still early.

OK....   I tried first-pick.com.....   and it's even more addictive due to the ability to make trades...  though I don't think many of them are very realistic....

 

That said, I turned 5 picks (including the R6) into 12 picks...  with three-3's, three-4's, three-5's, a 6 and 2 7's, and was rewarded with 6-A's, 4-B's and 2-C's.

 

According to their system, I was rewarded with 3647 points,  but that didn't even register among the top 20 Colts fans drafts!

 

So, many of you are flat-out kicking my horses's rear on this website......

 

I gave the Colts 3 DL, 2 ILB, 2 CB's, 2 DB's, 2 WR's and a RB.    The only position I didn't fill was interior O-lineman because I didn't like the ones I was offered when my picks came around.   Otherwise....?

 

Not sure what more I needed to do...   but take a look...

Yeah I don't get the scoring either. I stopped worrying about that after a while. I think there's a way to do it to rig the points, but that's kind of not the point for me. 

 

Also, I agree, these trade scenarios are a little out of control. I stopped accepting trade offers and just stuck with our stock picks.

    •   I think Dawkins would be fine with pick 46 in the 2nd round.     But with pick 15 in the 1st?!?       No!     Oh, heck no!!     He's a very strong candidate to be a very solid guard,  but pick 15?     And instead of Lamp at 15 who was still available?      No!    No!    No!    
    •   Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something here,  but what does this mean?     I'm cutting and pasting......     PFF Offensive Line Rankings- Colts Ranked 25th Overall- The most interesting bit of information from this was that they felt Castonzo had a really strong year, and that our original starting 5 were far superior to ANY combination we used when we had to account for injuries.   If that implies that our OL toward the beginning of the season graded out better than our OL the last 7 games of the season did when the C/RG/RT was Kelly, Haeg and Clark,  then I'm afraid I'm going to have to call nonsense on that viewpoint.    The OL was much better down the stretch...    and the stats including both far fewer sacks of Andrew Luck and a solid running game for Gore backs that up.   So,  what am I not understanding?     Have I misunderstood something?    Can someone throw me a bone here?   What's going on?     Clearly, I'm not understanding their meaning....    
    • I think we steal Foster at 15 if he's there. The kid was a top 5 talent and the best prospect at ILB since Kuechly just a few weeks ago. There's been a lot that's if things happen but the tape has not changed.    I think we go Reddick and maybe even Harris at 15. Conley is solid but not special. 
    •   You dont think that Haeg or Good could fix those issues?
    •   I don't doubt that all of those things are true.    But I think some NFL staffs are going to see most of those issues as very correctable.     They can be coached up.   But here's what can't be coached up.    Nearly 6'4" and 220+ pounds.    4.4 speed and about 43 inches in the vertical and nearly 11 feet in the broad jump.     And I think he did well at the various shuttles.    Those numbers are freaky.    They're likely the best at the combine.     So,  while I think most teams will likely agree with your assessment,   I think some teams (less than 8 or 25%)  will see first round physical qualities and see a late 1st round pick....   somewhere between 25-32...   Odds are he gets picked in the first half of the 2nd round...   somewhere before 50.     I just wouldn't be shocked if somehow he sneaks in to the late 1st....
