Every NFL Draft analyst has a job: We analyze how the draft could play out and why.
One way to do this is through a mock draft.
I have one question, where is Mike Mayock's mock draft?
He is one of the two best NFL Draft analysts in the world along with Mel Kiper.
So, where is HIS mock draft?
Many people from NFL.com and the NFL Network have written mock drafts, yet none of them are true NFL Draft analysts. Jamie Dukes, Steve Wyche and Pat Kirwan are on this list. Why have they written mock drafts, yet arguably the most famous football analyst on the NFL Network, Mike Mayock, has put out nothing in terms of a mock yet?
I am not a Mayock hater at all. He is a pioneer in the industry and has gotten football analysis back to its roots, focusing on actual game tape and technique, as opposite to ESPN's formula of highlights and music, which interrupts the person talking and tries to make their channel as corny and fake as possible.
I am a big fan of Mayock's, but why hasn't he put out a mock draft yet?
It is an honest and important question. Every other draft analyst in the world has a mock draft, so why not him?
