If you watched andy of the Senior Bowl coverage on the NFL Network you may be familiar with Corey Chavous’ site DraftNasty.com. I checked out the site when I first learned of it and quickly dismissed it as a feeble attempt of a former NFL player to become a draftnik. The site is poorly put together and ridiculous rankings such as Joe Haden as the 4th-ranked cornerback and Jermaine Gresham as the 7th-rated tight end cause him to lose all credibility.
But just in case you actually thought he had some shred of credibility based on the fact that he played in the NFL, I present to you his mock draft.
A few of the highlights:
1. Neither Jimmy Clausen, nor Sam Bradford are in the 1st round
2. Ryan Mathews goes 7th overall to the Browns
3. Amari Spievey is the 2nd cornerback selected, behind Patrick Robinson
I hate to drive traffic to his site by even providing the links. But mock drafts like these, especially by those such as Corey Chavous who have the ability to reach a significant audience, infuriate me. Its insulting to the fans and it hurts the credibility of everyone in the business. Those who see these clearly impossible mock drafts quickly become cynical towards all draftniks. I hear it all the time: how can you predict the draft months in advance? True, its difficult, but not nearly as hard some make it appear.
