Mock Drafts: The Horrible Truth

Browns fans basically kicked the keisters of the so-called draft experts, if one compares the results of their mock drafts. For example, not a single "expert" mock figured that Buffalo would take Lee Evans (pictured) with pick #13. Here is the horrifying truth, from the one site that goes back to see which mocks rocked, and which were less accurate than throwing darts at a dartboard.


Each year, prior to the NFL Draft, numerous draft sites and experts appear to declare their opinions on the likely outcome of the upcoming draft. Some experts appear with great fanfare and financial compensation, others are niche publications or are fans with a strong interest in tracking college players.

An element we see with increasing frequency is a "mock draft", where the aforementioned experts attempt to predict where players will be selected. Several years ago, so many mock drafts had appeared that we launched the "Mock Draft Muncher", which TBF (TheBrownsFan) has calculated and published every year since 2000. The Mock Draft Muncher attempts to combine all the mock drafts we can find (currently 40 are tracked) and synthesizes a single mock out of all the individual mocks.

Bernie's Insiders, since appearing as BrownsTNG.com in 1999, has produced a mock draft most years, generally the result of fans making picks in a chat room mock draft or, as this year, by allowing fans to make their own mock draft picks.

This year was the first year that we created an application to allow fans make their own mock draft picks and track the results. 120 Browns fans made picks using the application, and we are currently contacting the top scorers to dole out prizes such as a six-month BerniesInsiders.com subscription and gift certificates to our Draft Day Party host, Bunker Hill Golf Course.

We figured that it would be a kick to see how our visitors selections did compared with the draft "experts". Our formula for scoring the results was very simple - we added up the number of players the mock drafts actually picked to go in the right spot.

Browns fans took the experts to school.

Here are some of the numbers:

  • 6% of BerniesInsiders.com visitors nailed more correct selections than any of the published mock drafts
  • The same percentage (5%) of Browns fans had nine players selected at the right spot - the same as the top mock drafts (Great Blue North Report and NFLPlayers.com)
  • Therefore, over 10% of Browns fans did as well or better than any of the "expert" mock drafts.
  • Nearly a third (29%) of Browns fans selected seven or more players in the right spots, as opposed to 13% of the experts mock drafts.
  • ESPN Magazine referred to all draft gurus other than Mel Kiper as "Mel Kiper Wannabes". ESPN Interactive got six right, as did NFL.com's draft expert Vic Carucci, which would put them in the middle third of Browns fans. Kiper and Carucci can take solace, however, in that about half (56%) of the mock drafts published did worse than they did. Most of the other draft guru "wannabes" did exactly as well as Kiper.
  • In the name of full disclosure, the Mock Draft Muncher got five right (which makes sense based on how the mocks did in general) and Bernie's Insiders contributor Swerb got nine right. Your webmaster got six right, which means that I'm simply a better-coiffed Mel Kiper. Given that I've gone on record calling Kiper a "helmet-haired loon", you can form your own conclusions.

Here is a graph of the selections by Browns fans vs. those of the experts. The x-axis represents the number of players predicted in the right spot, and the y-axis is percentage of each group which got that number correct.
