For the Twitter draftnik community, it is indeed the most wonderful time of the year.
We're mocking our socks off on a daily basis, and the fine folks at MockOne.Net are once again dominating the hashtags with their crazy-popular #MockOne series. In a nutshell, each of the 32 teams is represented by a plugged-in Tweeter who is "more than just a fan, but someone who knows their team inside and out and can emulate what their team might do come draft day."
These people range from paid professionals in the scouting community to lowly hacks like myself.
Yes, I was called upon to play Minnesota Vikings GM for #MockTwo—the second mock in the series—in what's become a yearly stint. If you've read my work, you know that I don't expect Percy Harvin back. However, player-for-pick trades are prohibited, so for the purposes of this exercise, Percy is staying put.
I also went into this with the assumption that the Vikings will not get splashy in free agency, but will continue to make low-risk moves (save for the Carlson brain fart) and build through the draft.
