It’s mock draft season once again, so I figured I’d throw my two cents out there along with everyone else’s ill-advised, under-educated offerings that showcase just how little we know about talent evaluation. After all, even front office personnel admit that it’s an “inexact science”, so why would I expect to be any different? Still, it’s nice to go on record on the off chance that this blind squirrel does find an acorn. As always, all predictions guaranteed wrong or your money back.
