History of the Draft/Mock Draft Part I


Ok I have some info I collected last year with just a little updated material.  This is part one.  If it gets a lot of interest then I will think about doing a part two with some bigger names and newer information.  This may not be in the best format but I tried to organize this a little.  Most of all I wanted it to be a launching point for draft junkies.


How about we start with predraft rankings from Football Futures.com from 2005 - 2010 (have fun):

Footballsfuture.com has an archive of A LOT of people's old mocks. They only did it for 2004-2006 so I just added their mock drafts for 2007-2009 at the end since they were so nice for those 3 years.
