The NFL Mock Draft Database has grown to 284 mock drafts for the 2013 NFL Draft. For this week's mock munch, we munched together all NFL mock drafts updated between February 9, 2013 and February 13, 2013, that is a total of 59 mock drafts! By munching them together, we come up with leaders based upon an average of the most updated mock drafts out there.
These mock drafts range from major sports media, to fan networks, to newspaper media, and to fan bloggers. It's OK to be skeptical. Their just mock drafts. Their just opinions. However, our mock draft consensus was pretty accurate last year. So were many mock drafts. Many of these are based on inside sources and team connections that may know a team's specific and general thinking of player rankings. So take it for what it is worth and what you value it to be.
We track the total percent of mock drafts projecting the Top 6 picks and the change in percentage from the last update. Here are the Top 6 picks
|TEAM||PROJ PICK||% MOCKS||CHANGE||RUNNER UP|
|1. Kansas City||QB Geno Smith||56%||-1%||Joeckel|
|2. Jacksonville||DE Bjoern Werner||29%||-4%||Lotulelei|
|3. Oakland||DT Star Lotulelei||34%||+1%||Moore|
|4. Philadelphia||OT Luke Joeckel||54%||+1%||Fisher|
|5. Detroit||CB Dee Milliner||34%||NEW||Werner|
|6. Cleveland||LB Jarvis Jones||27%||+2%||Mingo|
First off, we have one change in the Top 6 projected leaders. CB Dee Milliner is now the leader at the 5th overall slot to Detroit. Out of the 59 mocks, 20 project Milliner to Detroit. Last week's leader, DE Bjoern Werner had 16 projections this week. Other than that change, projections were remarkably steady. The biggest gain or loss was Werner losing 4% at the second overall spot. OT Star Lotulelei is surging as a possble second overall pick. We probably will not see much fluctuations now until after the NFL Combine.
OTHERS NOT LISTED:
DE Damontre Moore is a favorite in the Top 6, even though he does not specially lead at any of those slots. 39 of the 59 most updated mocks have Moore going between 2nd and 5th overall. 14 mock draft project Moore to go second overall to Jacksonville. OT Eric Fisher still gets 8 projection at the fourth overall slot to the Eagles. LB Barkevious Mingo is only 1 mock projection behind LB Jarvis Jones for the lead at the sixth slot. Finally, keep an eye on DE Ezekeil Ansah at the sixth slot. He has been projected at the 6th slot by 5 mocks, but all those mocks were updated the last two days.
