Mock yourself out with the Draft Machine
SportsNation once again is offering a neat tool that allows you to get your mock on.
The NFL Draft Machine is back.
Anybody listed in the Scouts Inc. database is available. Hover your mouse over a player's name to see a thumbnail scouting report. Then drag him over to the slot where you think he'll be drafted.
Buffalo Bills fans can state their preference between quarterback Jimmy Clausen or tackle Bryan Bulaga with the ninth selection. For the Miami Dolphins at No. 12, you can pencil in nose tackle Dan Williams or outside linebacker Sergio Kindle or whomever else you like.
The entire first round is up to you.
About the only function you can't perform is trading picks, which means you can't get the full Mike Tannenbaum experience.
You must fill out at least the first 10 slots to submit your mock. Then you'll be taken to a page that stacks it up against the SportsNation consensus and the latest projections from ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay.
There's also the option to convert your war room into Romper Room.
With all of the prospects rated by Scouts Inc. in the hopper, you can mess with Michigan punter Zoltan Mesko and send him to the New England Patriots with the 22nd pick. Feel free to send a cornerback from Lindenwood University to the New York Jets at No. 29. If you've ever made the argument long-snappers are undervalued, then go ahead and list them with the first four picks if you desire.
You're the GM. Who are we to say how you stack your board?
