First off, I Hate Mock Drafts. They are essentially meaningless, worthless and impossible to get right, but...they are also incredibly fun, intriguing, and can offer great entertainment during the lulls of the offseason.
It's definitely a necessary evil this time of year.
With that, I am strapping on my Al Davis hat and throwing some picks on the wall to see if they Stick. This will be a mix bag of some of my favorite prospects and what I think Al and the crew will do.
In my opinion, this draft is one of the worst in over ten years. Why?
Well, compared to recent drafts, 2011 is lacking a legit No. 1 pick, and provides a lot of bust material.
There are no surefire quarterback prospects, no surefire tackle prospects, no surefire running back prospects, no surefire tight end prospects, so on and so on.
I know the draft is a crapshoot, and believe me, no team wants to be in Carolina's shoes right now. I'm sure a couple of gem's can be found and I hope Oakland can snag a few.
It's time to enter the art of the mock draft...see you on the other side.
