2012 NFL Mock Drafts: Twitter #VoteMock

Yesterday I decided that I wanted to hold a mock draft on twitter. It was spur-of-the-moment and I didn't give much notice to people, but I needed to get my mock fix. Doing mocks is a good way for me to get a feel for team needs and how people generally view and value players. Of course we're all just wannabe-GM's who probably don't know what we're talking about...but that's part of the fun of the draft.

The format for this mock, dubbed #VoteMock, was that I would tweet which team was on the clock, and then people would tweet me who they thought that team should select. There was a three minute timer, mostly because I was trying to finish it by 5PM so I could get out of work at a reasonable time.

Majority would rule, in other words whichever player had the most votes for that team's pick, that was the pick. Participation wasn't as good as it could have been due to the previously mentioned lack of "advertisement" on my part, but whatever, it was fun.

There were also no trades as it's impossible to do trades in this sort of mock where nobody is the specific representative of any one team, and the short timer. We all know there will be trades in the real NFL draft, so the results are not going to be entirely accurate here.

After the jump I'll post the results of the mock draft.

You can see when it came time for the 49ers to pick, there weren't many options that we'd hope for. In real life I think the team would trade down in this spot.
