Making A Mockery of Mocking: Round 1 Of The 2019 NFL Draft – Was I Better Than Kiper and McShay?

The NFL draft is pretty boring to watch. It has turned into a pop culture event, rather than what it is. I miss the days when I didn’t have to watch a 30 minute fashion show prior to the draft taking place.

Anyways, there were some surprises in the first round. The question on everyone’s mind – Am I better than Kiper and McShay at mock-drafting NFL talent in Round 1?


I am setting a scoring system in place prior to even comparing our mock picks. You get +1 if you select a player in the correct draft slot. You get +1 if you select a player to the correct team. Pretty simple.

Nobody knows what they are talking about! McShay was the best – he correctly picked 8.5 out of 32 draft spots. Kiper, on the other hand, would only have a 0.219 batting average if this were baseball. I was the worst, but I also do not get paid to do this for a living.

Could I do better if they paid me? Probably.

Your move ESPN.
