Mocking the mocks: Reviewing 2014 mock draft accuracy

Last year, right before the 2014 NFL Daft, I gathered a number of final first-round mock drafts from a variety of sources with the intent of scoring the accuracy of each mock so I could track the results. I reviewed 21 mock drafts in all. The highest points were awarded for the correct team picking the correct player at the correct spot but I did give partial points if a team picked...

That doesn’t look like a guy who is in any rush to get back to the NFL. I don’t need Peter King to tell me that this guy is perfectly content at home in Mississippi at his massive house (take a look). The guy has just been minding his business over on Sqor trying to get that fledgling social media operation off the ground.

Biggest signing for the Raiders is called one of the NFL’s worst by SB Nation

The Oakland Raiders didn’t sign any splashy, sexy players in free agency despite the fact that mane assumed they would.
