I don't care if you read this, or even hear about it, im hoping someone on the NFL's inside catches this though.

You have your own shows, commercials, ads, and your bad hair all over TV.

You probably live a very comfy lifestyle, you come out of your shell for three months to cover the draft, battle it out with Todd McShay, and offer us your precious insight on ESPN.

You even dupe some people into buying an ESPN insider subscription just so people can view your opinion further! Brilliant!

Now don’t get me wrong, you get a good portion of picks right, or at least can differentiate between whos going to go in the first round and who is not

I think a 10 year old could with all of the leaks and inside information you receive, but that’s beside the point

I recently came across a posting by NFC West blogger Mike Sando, who writes for ESPN. He was looking for 2009 NFL Mock Drafts who got the most first round picks guessed right, not necessarily who went where. I will dive deeper into those stats at a later time.

It stated you had gotten five wrong, getting 27/32 correct first rounders predicted.

I got 28/32.

I did better then you, without the inside information, without the fancy equipment, without the detailed scouting reports, without any of the advantages you are given.

A 17 year old who lives up in the forgotten corner of the most beautiful city in the nation, did better then the draft's “top expert.”

The guy who only really covers the draft, that’s all he has to do, he cannot even best a 17 year old who doesn’t even have the worthless ESPN insider subscription!

If you could, I would love to hear you explain to your fellow analysts how a high school student could possibly do better then a millionaire.

I made sure I published my mock draft, and since it has been picked up by external sources, would be un-changed by my hand on those sites.

I would have a small dose of sympathy, but you had Mark Sanchez going to my Seahawks, until you changed your mind two minutes before the draft started, smart choice

Mel Kiper Jr, the millionaire who cannot even outdo a teenager, I’m loving it.

Here's the mock by the way, any of you who can count can dig a little deeper yourselves.
