Hello friends! It’s been a long time. My jobs took me away from writing for Zone Reads, and then we had some web hosting issues, but now we’re back. I don’t have a football writing job anymore (or any job at present), so I have more time to write about the draft and such. I’m […]

Here’s your day 2 mock
People love reading this stuff, right? Anyway, here’s a quick before-bed rundown of how rounds 2 and 3 might go.
Final first-round mock
Figured I’d give this one last swing before the draft. The Zone Reads Big Board will be out later today as well. I tried to include some brief writeups on each player here when I could.
Dueling Mock II: Three Rounds, 3/10
We did it again. Another mock draft, taking into account the Combine and the first wave of free agent signings. Haven’t been posting in a while due to other life obligations, but if you follow Zone Reads on Twitter (@zonereads, naturally) you can get a good handle on what we’re up to these days. Without further […]
DUELING MOCKS, Round 1: Five rounds, February 11-12, 2017
vixticator and I occasionally like to do a “dueling mock” draft where we alternate picks. We think it gives us a more accurate picture of how we actually value players, since its’ easy to have some psychological bias to “let” players try to fall to a particular position or team when doing a mock by yourself. With […]
My first two-round mock
It’s draft season, and after the Senior Bowl has solidified our perspective on certain prospects, I thought it was time to write up a mock. This mock will be based roughly on my board, and roughly what I think teams ought to do, which is different than what I think they will do.
Zone Reads Twitter Mock
Last night, vix and I mocked the first two rounds of the draft on Twitter, alternating picks. As a bonus for website readers and forum viewers, we did a third round privately. Here’s the thread with the picks and discussion. Feel free to discuss either here or there. If you’d like to see the Twitter […]
Team Mock Draft: New Orleans Saints
I thought I’d do a few of these while it occurred to me. I don’t know how many I’ll finish by draft time, but based on our rankings and projections, these are drafts that I think match a team’s needs well with the expected talent available at each position. (I’ve also included some other possible […]
Our First Complete Mock Draft
The NFL released the official list of compensatory picks Monday at the owner’s meetings, which means we have the complete and finalized order of picks for the 2014 NFL Draft (barring any further trades). We haven’t published anything in a little while, and while I don’t have a full and complete update of our big […]
Zone Reads Post-Combine Mock Draft
While we continue to put together our big board and player database, we thought we’d give you something to read by doing another mock draft based on how we adjusted our boards after the Combine. Plus, we’ve only gotten to watch more and more tape since then, so we’re starting to form more solid impressions […]
