Came across this article,
Mocking the Mock Drafts (http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports_football_dolphins/2009/03/mocking-the-mock-drafts.html)

However, they do have value. I'm told every team, including the Dolphins, does a internal weekly mock of the first round or two just to help them prepare for the big day. Scouts, executives and coaches break up the 31 other teams and draft based on needs, the word on the street (which is where people like me come in), and what they know about each team's makeup and needs.
During this point in the season teams gossip like school girls about who likes who, and who worked out whom. Some of it is a smoke screen, and some of it is real.
