Single-Season Mock Draft

By Arlo Vander

With most of the off-season transactions behind us, we now have a clearer picture of players’ values heading into the 2006 season, and there’s no better way to gauge those values then to look over veteran fantasy owners’ shoulders at the draft table. And that’s just what we did: Fourteen drafters. Twenty-one serpentine rounds. Two hundred and ninety-four players selected, from Albert Pujols to BJ Upton. One heck of a mock.

As with any mock draft, the drafters’ preferences and team needs obviously play a role in their respective choices, and a player’s rank might therefore vary from what you might expect from a cheat sheet compiled outside of actual draft conditions.
