    Two options to pick your team and go through a full draft.

    http://first-pick.com
    This has been around for two years and makes changes every week plus you can trade up and down to your heart's content. The mocking can be a little ridiculous at times but it's still a real good program.

    http://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/
    This requires no logging in and has no trading but at times it's a pretty good program. I think it's a little more 'realistic' than First pick but it has its moments too.

    Enjoy mocking and feel free to post your draft here

    I went on a massive trade-back frenzy in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and at one point owned a solid 1/3 of the entire 4th round - then turned around and traded back into the 3rd and still had picks to spare. Completely unrealistic, but hey... what the hell!

    Round 1 Pick 28 (N.E.): Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
    Round 2 Pick 25: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
    Round 3 Pick 15 (CLE): Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
    Round 3 Pick 18 (NYJ): Ahmad Dixon, SS, Baylor (traded four 4th round picks to get back here)
    Round 3 Pick 25: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State
    Round 4 Pick 2 (WASH): Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina
    Round 4 Pick 6 (ATL): JaWuan James, OT, Tennessee
    Round 4 Pick 10 (DET): Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington
    Round 4 Pick 25: George Uko, DE, Southern California
    Round 5 Pick 14 (CHI): Max Bullough, ILB, Michigan State
    Round 6 Pick 2 (WASH): Demarcus Lawrence, DE, Boise State
    Round 6 Pick 8 (MINN): Austin Wentworth, OT, Fresno State
    Round 6 Pick 14 (CHI): Ricardo Allen, CB, Purdue
    Round 6 Pick 25: Jay Bromley, DT, Syracuse
    Round 7 Pick 8 (MINN): Dexter McDougle, CB, Maryland
    Round 7 Pick 25: Crockett Gillmore, TE, Colorado State

    This didn't start the way I wanted but in the end I feel like I got a bunch of good deals

    Your Picks:
    Round 2 Pick 1 (HOU): Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State (A)
    Round 2 Pick 25: Vic Beasley, DE, Clemson (A)
    Round 3 Pick 1 (HOU): Anthony Steen, OG, Alabama (A)
    Round 3 Pick 25: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia (A)
    Round 4 Pick 4 (CLE): Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech (B+)
    Round 4 Pick 25: Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee (A-)
    Round 5 Pick 4 (CLE): Andre Williams, RB, Boston College (A)
    Round 5 Pick 25: Jalen Saunders, WR, Oklahoma (A)
    Round 6 Pick 25: James Stone, C, Tennessee (B+)
    Round 7 Pick 25: Bene Benwikere, CB, San Jose State (B+)

    Beasley and Gilbert in the second are huge scores, and I liked also adding Attaochu who can basically have a redshirt year and then step up when Freeney and Johnson leave. Steen can slide next to Fluker and control the right side while Moses will eventually take over for Dunlap. The rest were good depth players but McCullers could very well be that NT we've been looking for (horrible draft for NT). Williams will be the big pounding running back to replace R. Brown, Saunders can replace V. Brown and Stone and Benwikere are depth.

    If we get Attaochu and/or McCullers in the 4th, I'll **** my pants. I've gotta think this gets more accurate as we get past Senior Bowl and Combine.

    And....he's no more a sure thing than a lot of other QB's are, and it will just depend if a team likes him. He's not like a consensus first round pick or anything...

    Smith has grown on me, I really think we'll be lucky if he falls to us in the 2nd. He's one of those guys who plays fast in pads, has a couple go to moves, makes solid safe tackles, and has the ability to run around in space without looking completely lost.

    As I watched Demarcus Lawrence again tonight, I really began to appreciate Marcus Smith for what he is, a player who actually makes things happen. Stuff that won't pop at the combine, but it does on tape.

    I like Moncrief a lot as well, but I think Josh Huff will be able to do anything and everything in this league. Screen game, stretching the field, jump balls, slot receiver, etc. This guy is something else and I think he fits perfect in our scheme.

    2 RB's huh? Interesting, if RM has another good year I could see him staying in SD. We of course need a back behind him in case he starts to wear down. He took on a lot of carries at the end of the year, and I don't know if that was designed to protect him -- giving him less of a load early on in the season and increasing the work load later on.

    I see Hill as the primary backup, though of course I'd prefer West. Thomas I see as purely a KR/PR guy (and maybe a few offensive wrinkles) for now, he's just too explosive to not want to get him the ball a few times a game. Woodheads deal is also up after this season.

    I was disappointed not to land a backup OT, but I guess that's how it goes when you only have 7 picks.

    I'm really interested to see what Joe D can do with Becton. Long, quick footed, strong OT that has all the physical attributes to play in this scheme. I think he develops into no less than a solid backup with Joe D, and the possibility of a starting LT.

    Thomas IMO is more than just a PR/KR guy, but it'll be interesting to see what he'll end up as on offense. I think he can play RB, but i'm one of the few. He actually reminds me a lot of a slightly smaller Chris Johnson. Dont think he's an every down back, but if you put him in a rotation with a guy like Matthews who can carry the load, then he'll be good. Can split him out as a WR a bit too, but Oregon tried that 2 seasons ago and it didn't work as well. Played better as a true RB this year when he was healthy.

    IMO getting a RB early in this draft is a mistake. Anything before the 6th, maybe 5th would be a disappointment unless its a true game breaker type. There's a ton of quality late round/UDFA backup options that will be solid right out of the gate.

    Every time i watch Marcus Smith play, I can just see him as a Charger LB. He's the type of guy TT and MM have clearly shown a preference for, and he's the kind of guy that just flows all over the field and does his job, but with enough burst to beat OT's off the edge. Handwork needs some coaching and his overall game needs some polish, but he's a guy who seems to be in the right place at the right time, and just simply does his job.

    Becton - Not sure I see it, but I'm sure he'll make the roster this year if Joe D makes it so.

    Thomas - The lack of toughness and durability is why I don't think he's Chris Johnson. But if we draft him I hope he can at least be a versatile weapon, he ran routes at Oregon as well as playing RB, there's a Reggie Bush element there, on top of the Holliday/Hester type return ability.

    Smith - I think if he were any more polished we'd have to take him at 25 haha. But then again Mingo managed to get in the top 10 and he was the complete opposite of polished.

    Your not sure you see it based on what....lol...he played all of 12 snaps last year before he got hurt. What are you making this opinion off of. And even then, Dunlap looked like he was one of the worst OT's in the league a few years ago...this guy has the traits and ability to thrive in Joe D's system.

    Durability.....like the 1 injury that's made him miss games...the one that was completely non contact and in a monsoon. I dont see the lack of toughness either, lack of power maybe, but he's consistently running through arm tackles because of his ability to make insanely fast subtle cuts at high speeds. Same way CJ2K breaks tackles.

    I'm not sure you see polished the same way i do. Mingo, while he was raw, he was an elite athlete who played with outstanding playing strength, and had very active/powerful hands. He bull rushed our own Fluker back into the QB before Fluke was able to finally regain his base right in front of the QB a few times vs Bama. He didn't have a lot of moves, but he knew how to use his hands to get an advantage on the blocker. Smith is the absolute opposite of that....

    Smith is pretty lax with his hand usage and it shows. Solid athlete, but nothing special, though he does have a quick burst, i'm not expecting him to destroy the combine drills. His handwork kills me though. He has a huge problem getting off blocks right now. Almost all of the sacks he has were just dead strait runs at the QB where he barely got touched, most of them weren't even beating the OL off the ball, it was just a plain missed assignment.

    Base on his college tape. He's got good feet but he seems soft in the run game. If he doesn't burst on to the scene immediately when given a chance you know TT will draft an OT high in 2015 or 2016 just for a safety net if not a day 1 starter.

    I'm a Duck fan (and a Beaver fan, being born in SD I owe loyalty to neither) and trust me DT tapped his own helmet a lot in the middle of games. I'm not sure he was ever 100% in 2013. That said I would happily risk a day 3 pick on him for his return skills and versatility alone, and just hope you're eventually right about him being tough. Declaring this year was a mistake for him IMO, he needs to get stronger in the trunk.

    I agree on Smiths athleticism and sloppy handwork, I don't expect him to blow up the combine. That said it's harder to teach awareness, instinct, and motor than it is to teach technique. I'm a big fan of his upside (pardon the draft cliche).

    Mingo...Bruce Campbell was an extreme athlete, being polished to me is looking like you belong, having spatial awareness, snap anticipation, hand placement, situational awareness etc...there were times in 2012 I don't think Mingo even knew where he was much less where the ball was. I think he's got sky high potential, but there's a big bust factor there. On tape he was a day 3 pick, in shorts he was number 1 overall. Just not a risk I would take in the top 10, but maybe the late 20s early 30s.
