i think this is a neat idea, see how your teams and plans stack up to the "experts." Also this seams fast, you could do it any time your online.

i'm gonna go try it.

Oh nice job, J35J - now nobody in here will ever want to do any more mocks! :-b

I've done this for a few years as well. It also gives you an idea of which players you might be a little high on. If you do 8 of these mocks and end up with AJ Burnett in all 8 of them, you might be ranking him a bit high.

Been doing it for a couple of years. It gives me a good idea what guys I need to pick a round earlier than expected or have time to wait on for a round or two. One problem is that my league uses holds, so most mocks use standard 5x5 and don't help me with that. And, inevitably, there's an unpredictable run in some category in a real draft.

Another way you can do this is mocking using the live draft results from a fantasy site. Just like combined player rankings here on the Cafe, the live draft results give you the collective assessment of tens of thousands of fantasy players, both good and bad. Since the typical fantasy player may have different views than the expert drafter and since these are updated all through Spring Training (given the most recent assessment, rather than some experts view in January), they can offer a good "mock" Mock Draft.
