Interesting perspective on the draft. I would lose it if we could get Tank at 61, but his projections are all over the board.

I'm not going to be very productive at work today...
Thanks so much WRATHman44 (great name BTW). I thought I'd take a different spin and try and hone it down to who we really might pick.
If the past is the best prediction for the future, the next step in all of this is to go back and match up the private workouts with the picks we made over the past two years. I bet we find a pattern. I bet there is a correlation. I bet we could find something like, say 60% overall, we drafted players we had private workouts with (or more). Then you could break it down even further (e.g. 100% of the top 3 picks we had privte workouts with - e.g. Jenkins, CK, Aldon, etc.). This information could really help for future predictions/mock drafts.
To be frank, I didn't go through every single post to determine the entire lot of visits, etc. I just focused on that one source (Walter). That info could be incorrect. MM has been tracking as well which may be more accurate but I didn't include his work either. So this isn't the most comprehensive mock draft from this perspective but it's a start and when I was done, compared to other mocks, it seems pretty realistic.
We shall see...thanks for reading!
