Mock Draft Simulator Logic
With On the Clock you make the picks for your team, but the other 31 teams are autopicked for you. The simulator is based on a combination of the current big board rankings and the current team needs, which will be updated throughout the draft process.
Instead of having the draft set to the standard drafting schools of thought of best player available (BPA) or drafting by team need, the simulator tries to combine the two, for a more realistic experience. There is a variability to ensure that the drafts don't come out the same each time, so you should try to draft multiple times to see what is the best overall draft you can come up with.
So enjoy the draft and see what is the best draft you can have for your favorite teams!
On the Clock Notes
- Data updates will be made a couple times a month in the summer. Draft order is now based off of NFL predicted draft order in-season.
- Multiple big boards will be added this fall & winter.
- User Voted Team Needs will be updated a couple times a month in the summer as well.
- If you want to save your mock drafts for annual experiment or just to have record of simulations, be sure to screenshot and save it. After the Draft in which you are running mock drafts for is over, those URLs will not be saved.
