2-round Mock Draft: Only selecting players if the team has met with them

New, comments

A mock draft based completely around pre-draft visits during a strange year of pre-draft visits

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

I did a mock draft this afternoon. I only had one real criteria:

I could only select the player if the team has met with them during the pre-draft process. I mostly used the WalterFootball tracker list but it is clearly incomplete. Nothing I’ve found is complete unfortunately. If I got in a tough spot with Walter, I went searching Google, finding sites like this one.

If you find a discrepancy, that’s cool. You can mention it in the comments but I’m not gonna, like, update this. It’s just a mock draft, it’ll be expired by tomorrow anyways.

If you see a really weird player-team combo based on it being too high or too low (first of all, the team met with the player, so we know there’s some level of interest) it’s probably based on the fact that I had this criteria for the mock draft and that was the best player available at the time and I wasn’t doing trades. That’s it.

I went into the second round so we could get two picks for the LA Rams. You’ll see them later.

Yes, I have Tua Tagovailoa going to the Miami Dolphins ... in round two.

I realize some of these picks will look odd. I actually like that and I don’t mind if they are wrong a) because I have a strict caveat and teams will choose players they didn’t have visits with and b) the real draft will have players in spots that make you surprised too. Maybe not these names in these places, but it’s going to happen Thursday and Friday for sure.
