Admittedly, this post is amateurish from the outset. This is a venting. I submit the request that mock-drafting and the like be given it's own website. Please leave us alone. For months I've logged on to NN hoping to talk football, only to find a site completely dominated by the musings of peddlers and palm-readers. There is no point to the speculation. Betting on the predictions of the weatherman would be a better place for my milk money.
I think mock drafts should die a cold death. Mock draft participants should be sentenced to wearing Mel Kiper's hair style until they make 1 accurate prediction. From free agency until the draft, draft-niks dominate the bandwidth of ninersnation. Not 1 member picked Aldon Smith last year. Not 1 person picked what's-his-name this year. And I am willing to bet that not 1 member will predict our first-rounder next year. You were boring last year, you were boring this year, and it will be boring when you waste your breath next year. It is horrific.
Please stop trying; GM's make millions of dollars after decades of experience and 80% of them consistently make huge mistakes. Who cares what you think? If you are good at it - go build a 'bully'. Otherwise, stop holding this site pre-draft-hostage. It is fools' gold. Al Davis was a coach and NFL executive for 50 years and in the end he loved JaMarcus Russel. You, on the other hand, are about as qualified at making picks as JaMarcus Russel would be.
I am betting on a SF vs. HOU Super Bowl this year; who's with me!?
