Mock draft performances through the years

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Apr 29, 2008



You saw this year's mock-draft performance of six noted "pundits" here today.
 
But we've been tracking mock-draft performance since our first off-season in 2005. Of the six we looked at today, we've followed four of them each of those four years.
 
Here's a look at the cumulative success rate of those four draft "pundits" over the four NFL drafts from 2005 to 2008. Notice that the most well-known "pundits," Mel Kiper Jr. and Scouts Inc. (as represented by Todd McShay) have truly abysmal rates of success.
 
And these two guys do virtually nothing all year but prepare for the draft. How can they be so bad?
