Mock drafts are usually pretty silly

by Pat, Right behind you, Wednesday, October 07, 2015, 09:39

especially ones 6 months or so before the draft. I'm curious just how wrong and useless they are, so I'm going to copy this one down and tag it so we can revisit it at draft time. How many of these "Top 100" players will actually be drafted in the Top 100? 75%? 50%?

I'm grabbing this one because (a) it has 6 ND players in the Top 100, (b) 10(!) OSU players in the top 55, and (c) is from the "NFL Draft Lead Writer" for Bleacher/Report, a position you'd think would require some accuracy. At the very least, it's a snap shot of the Top 100 draft eligible players at Power 5 schools.
