Going on the clock for ESPN Blogger Mock
By Mike Sando
We've become accustomed to reading NFL mock drafts as finished products, usually from a single author.
Process trumps product when our eight divisional bloggers, myself included, gather Monday at 1 p.m. ET for a live mock draft allowing on-the-clock trades.
I'll post a link when I have one.
We're setting aside a two-hour window for this mock, allowing not quite 4 minutes per pick on average. The hope is for the format to promote urgency and discussion. This will be interactive to the extent the "Cover It Live" module allows.
I'm making picks and trades for the NFC West teams, whether they like it or not. Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon will be a consideration for the St. Louis Rams at No. 6 despite concerns raised on the blog and in the ESPN video above.
