Well, that’s just foolish. So to see what a BPA type draft might look like, I thought it might be fun to see what happens if I did just that. To remove ANY SEMBLANCE of subjectivity, I used the NFL.com draft value chart as the basis of my selective process. And to round out the quirks of odd selections in any mock draft program, I decided to run the same mock draft seven times to see what possibilities would happen.
I was surprised at the results. I discovered that the selection made by teams prior to the Eagles selection had drastic effects on subsequent picks by other teams. I also observed that mock draft simulators, while incredibly entertaining, limit team selections to their presumed priorities of needs. On draft day, teams will likely choose who they see at the strongest selection. But despite the flaws, and the inherent challenge of presuming my draft board was similar to that which the Eagles will work from, I had a lot of fun.
