Our final mock draft

Weems | Comments (2,273) | nfl football | April 25, 2012 12:00 pm

The draft is tomorrow. YAY! Being that we are website that talks about sports, we are thus required to release a Pro Football mock draft (Section 3.4.9 of the Official Internet Blog Constitution). This one is not a joke (unlike our last mock) and is probably all wrong. Nonetheless, we follow A LOT of information about football, and aren’t just trowing darts at a draft board. Take a gander, should you feel inclined.

All picks after the jump.

Mock It Out! Our not-so-serious NFL mock draft

Kizzle | Comments (6,196) | Eagles,nfl football | April 5, 2012 11:45 am

Here’s another NFL mock draft to pollute the internet with. OH, OH, OH, but it’s funnier than most! (Plus, we made that super-awesome GIF, so you kinda owe it to us to give it a read).

We will put out a real mock draft closer to the actual draft, but in the meantime, let’s have a little fun.

1. Indianapolis Colts
Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Because nothing says “Indiana” like a goofy white dude with a neck beard. This pick is Koy Detmer approved.

2. Washington Redskins (via St. Louis Rams)
Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
RG3 recently turned down a private workout for the Colts. He REALLY can’t wait for Kyle Shanahan to start fucking up his career.

3. Minnesota Vikings
Matt Kalil, OT, USC
Who really cares? The Vikings themselves have seemingly given up. They might as well just cut ADP and let Toby Gerhart run rampid (read: for ) behind their super marketable franchise cornerstone, Matt Kalil. Great time to be a Vikes fan!

4. Cleveland Browns
Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M
This is entirely too early for any team to draft a 1-year QB who was converted from WR. PERFECT! Cleveland must suck at everything athletic. It’s the 11th Commandment: Thou Browns shall draft like a dickhead.

Really early 2012 NFL mock draft

Kizzle | Comments (2,460) | Eagles,nfl football | January 4, 2012 11:55 am

Mock drafts are cool. I don’t know why; you don’t know why — they just are.

We read mocks even before the playoffs conclude and pretend that favorite teams just added the player listed on some random blog by some schmohawk. If we don’t like the player assigned to our favorite team, we dismiss the entire mock draft and call the author an idiot. Seems reasonable because he/she probably is.

That being said, I’ll mention that I try to do as much research on draft eligible players as possible, but am certainly no Howie Roseman. Here’s to hoping you don’t hate the player I gave your team. If so, just make up some other cool player and insert them at your draft slot. I warn you though, Justin Blackmon will not last until pick #16 just because you reeeeally want him to.

1. Indianapolis Colts
Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Is there anyone out there that doesn’t think Luck will be a Colt?
