That's sort of the point of doing a mock, isn't it? Accounting for other teams seeing these REALLY good players and wanting them just like you do, but finding a way to get as many of them as possible.
And sure, some people slip, but ALL of those really good players just happening to slip right to us? It's like saying, "hey don't worry about the value of your cards when playing poker...you'll likely end up with pocket aces anyway." No, you really do have to worry about the value of your cards and no you can't assume things are going to just fall right into your lap as they do in this draft.
Point being, the reason this draft is so effen good is that it's unrealistic. If you're not factoring in certain constraints (such as, "hey, other teams aren't totally daft and can spot top players just like us") and making counter-moves to acquire all of this great talent (trades up/down) than your mock is pretty useless.
