Mock Drafts, NFL Draft, NFL Draft Prospects
We all have our favorite sources for NFL Draft content on the web. NFL Network, in addition to their coverage of the Senior Bowl, the NFL Scouting Combine, and prospect Pro Days, has catnip for draftniks (how's that for an awkward phrase?) in the form of their daily "Path to the Draft" show. Of course, in print, the best draft publication on the planet is Ourlads Guide to the NFL Draft, and our paid Members can get their guide for free this year. Here at PowerHouse, we have SiriusXM NFL Radio on pretty much all the time, and their best show, hands down, is "Movin' the Chains," with former NFL personnel man Pat Kirwan and former journeyman (in case he reads this) QB Jim Miller. Every year, they do a…

The Last 2014 NFL Mock Draft You’ll Ever Need

The Last 2014 NFL Mock Draft You’ll Ever Need

Mock Drafts, NFL Draft
I love mock drafts. There, I admitted it. The definition of a "guilty pleasure" (according to Google,) is "something... that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard."

My good friend Dave Johnson and I have been doing a mock draft a few days before the NFL Draft for years. This year we skipped the inefficiencies of email and used Facebook chat to do it, resulting in a more real-time experience and an overall good time.…

NFL Mock Draft by Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller

Mock Drafts
On Friday, March 28th, Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller, hosts of the "Movin' the Chains" show on SiriusXM's NFL Radio channel, held their second mock draft of the season. As an aside, if you don't listen to this channel in general and this show in particular, you're missing out. I rarely turn it off. Jim made the odd-numbered picks and Pat made the even-numbered picks. I have participated in mock drafts like this, and doing them with someone else definitely adds a unique perspective. We also will once again run a group mock draft in our Forum, as we did last year.   Picks 1 through 10   Jim started things off by sending Blake Bortles to the Texans. Pat traded the Rams' pick down to the #6 spot with…

NFL Mock Draft | Zach Bohner One Round Mock Draft By Zach Bohner, NFLDraft101.com I have two trades happening in this NFL mock draft - Buffalo trading up with Tampa Bay and Cincinnati trading up with Miami. This mock assumes that Peyton Manning signs with Arizona and Matt Flynn signs with Miami. Any moves that were made after 11 PM March 12 have not been considered. Round 1 Pick Team Pos Player School 1 Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck # Stanford   The Colts have wisely decided to move on from the Peyton Manning era. Fans are sad to see him go, but Luck is too good of a prospect to pass on. 2 Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin # Baylor   Dan Snyder traded away a ton of picks…
