NFL Network's Mike Mayock does just a single mock draft every year. The analyst and draft guru does his homework leading up to the draft and let's the news shake out before announcing who he thinks every team will pick. One of the more respected names among the NFL Draft analysts, you can bet that the NFL and it's fans are taking notice when Mayock's official mock draft comes up.
Part of this is serious study on the players and teams to be drafting and some of this is pure guess work on the part of Mayock. As always, hindsight is 20/20 when it comes to selecting for 32 teams that seem to change their minds on a whim. However, Mayock did pretty well with last year's mock draft. Mayock called for the Ravens to select C.J. Mosley from Alabama and the Ravens did exactly that. While there were some trades ahead of the Ravens that altered the overall selections a bit, Mayock generally hit on his selections pretty well.
The NFL Network and Mike Mayock will be having Mayock's Mock Draft tonight at 8PM Eastern on the NFL Network. In the chance that you don't get the NFL Network, we'll obviously be here to announce who the Ravens pick and to announce the full list of first round selections.
