As promised, we did a mock draft and here are the results from it. Dr. Raj drafted from the 12 spot, while I drafted from the 5 spot. Team grades are given below…
Draft board

Team Grades:

Team 1: B
You did very well for going Mahomes so early. Even though I’m not high on Lindsay, McCoy and Larry Fitzgerald, you still ended up with a very good team. If Mahomes finishes QB1 like he did last year, you got a good shot at winning the mock Super Bowl.

Team 2: C
Did I mention I hate Todd Gurley this year? Too much risk. I don’t get the Corey Davis pick. Eric Ebron will regress.

Team 3: C+
You crushed it the first 4 rounds, and then things went sour. Hunter Henry is intriguing, but to draft Kupp then Henry back-to-back is a bit too much for me with two ACL injuries in round 5 and round 6. You still ended up with a good team, but I round 5+6 combo left a sour taste in my mouth.

Team 4: B+
I love this team. I would have waited on the Bears D one more round, but that wasn’t terrible. You made some bold, risky moves, but that could pay off big time.

Team 5: A-
I easily crushed it this draft. Only knock is that I don’t have an amazing RB2/3, but I made up with that by drafting high-upside RBs like D’Onta Foreman, Justin Jackson, Justice Hill, Devin Singletary and Ryquell Armstead.

Team 6: C+
This would have been an A if Melvin wasn’t holding out. I just can’t take that type of risk in the first 2 rounds. Other than that, you did very well.

Team 7: B+
Not my style, but you did very well. Dalvin and Ertz are guys I avoid, but you didn’t get them at a bad spot if you like them. I don’t like Golden Tate, but you have other WRs that may step up. After your first two WRs, you are weak at that position.

Team 8: B-
You are on fire, but then hit a brick wall because you drafted OJ Howard. Tarik Cohen could regress and relies too much on the big home run plays. You should have went RB in Round 5 and then waited on a tight end. There was even a chance Howard would have been there Round 6. I still like the way you drafted overall and ended up with what would probably be a playoff team.

Team 9: B+/A-
I love this team except for the QB position. Your QB position is good, but it’s not great. You had a very good draft.

Team 10: C
You took on way too much risk in the early rounds, but I liked a lot of your later picks. Weird selection of QBs going Jimmy G round 12 then Trubisky Round 13.

Team 11: C+
Not a big fan of Cam Newton. AJ Green & Fournette is a good amount of risk to take in the first 4 rounds. Love your first two picks though. And DJ Moore Round 6 is not bad.

Team 12: B-
I don’t like Conner early–should have went Mixon. Other than that, pretty good team Dr. Raj!

  1. Thanks Brain.

    Maybe I could’ve grabbed Aaron Jones (or Henry or Mack) at 3.2 but Gurley seemed the obvious choice. MY MISTAKE! Corey Davis is a WR1 on his team, I thought that was a good idea with 2s going off the board around then. Ebron may well regress – maybe a panic pick but I didn’t certainly didn’t want to go beyond McDonald (I note your rankings contradict my choice), so this allowed me to grab a top teir QB. I might do things differently next time.

    Thanks for the analysis.
