Someone asked the week of the draft had anyone ever kept track of how the mocks fared after the draft to what actually happened.
Here is a little taste.

I am not impressed, I got 31 out of 32 correct in my Mock the Monday immediately following the draft, I would have been perfect, but even in hindsight I wouldn't have drafted Campbell if I had been the "Skins, GO CHIEFS

I have to laugh. ESPN was perfect until they underestimated Matt Millen's stupidity, and then he screwed up the whole thing for them.
