Apparently a site called SBNation is running a mock that has each team-specific blog representing their team in a mock, complete with trade deals being worked out and everything. Supposedly it is the most elaborate mock out there, as it isn't just one person making all the picks and trades but is actually run like the real thing, where the different reps must actually agree on traes and all that, just like real life.

Anyway, Draft Tek is now covering it, so their 7 round mock is now turned into a log for the happenings in the SBNation mock. It's very interesting. They list the up to date picks highlighted in orange as if they were the real picks, and then they (Draft Tek), proceed to mock the rest of the 7 rounds with their projections. Currently the Houston Texans are "on the clock"

Here's the link (updated 4/3):

So far it has our mock as follows:

Round 1 - Brady Quinn (picked by the Miami Dolphins' Blog Rep)
Round 2 - Arron Sears, OT, Tennessee (Draft Tek projection)
Round 2 - Jason Hill, WR, Washington State (Draft Tek projection)
Round 3 - Samson Satele, C/G, Hawai'i (Draft Tek projection)
Round 4 - Courtney Brown, CB, Cal-Poly (Draft Tek projection)
Round 5 - NONE (Stupid Harrington)
Round 6 - Johnnie Harline, TE, Brigham-Young (Draft Tek projection)
Round 7 - Tony Taylor, ILB, Georgia (Draft Tek projection)
Round 7 - Joe Anoai, DT, Georgia Tech (Draft Tek projection)

The 1st 4 picks look fine- the rest I don't have a clue about. I remember that Jason Hill almost came out last year and was highly regarded. Then he ripped off that 40 time at the combine. I'd like to see some film of him. Anyway, this draft has us taking QB, OL, and WR- just what the doctor ordered.

Very interesting. I don't see the draft going like this but it's interesting nevertheless.

Arizona taking Levi Brown at #5? Hmmm.

Minnesota taking Adrian Peterson? It's possible because he'll be an upgrade over Chester Taylor.

Johnny Harline was one of the best pass catching TEs in college football last year. I only saw him play a couple of times with the last time being in the bowl game against Oregan. He overmatched and outplayed everyone Oregan put on him. Undersized and not much of a blocker.

Same here :lol:.

The only footage I could find on Hill was his Senior Bowl footage. It's pretty short, but he rips off a nice reverse run for a big gain, and has a good back corner of the endzone catch:

That was a nice reverse but did you see who made the tackle? Patrick Willis came all the way across the field, after making a false step the other way, to make the play on Hill.

I didn't even notice that. I was struggling to see what Hill was doing because I too have never seen tape on him, and this one is a bit blurry :lol:. I noticed the tackler came screaming in like a friggin banshee from hell though, I just wasn't aware it was Willis or that he false-stepped on the opposite side of the field. That is damn impressive.
