The Great 2007 Blogger's NBA Mock Draft

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Do you know how hard it is to get 26 different bloggers from all across the Country to post picks in a Mock Draft at exact times throughout the day? No??? Well then you don't understand my pain. As with each of these that I do it's a great idea, but in no way flawless.

The Rundown: Each Blogger was given a team to represent and make selections for (AA's was Portland). Picks were made via message board at Ballhype, and carefully dissected and ridiculed.

The Plan: I came up with the brilliant idea to grade each of the Teams/Blogger's picks just so you could mock (get it?) them in the comments.

The Actuality: I basically picked for a ton of people so making fun of them wouldn't really fly. We're still going to grade the picks, but by team only in another post. In all seriousness only one pick was really a stretch (a huge one at that), but you never know....Aflalo really COULD go #13! (Riiiight)

Thank everyone for your time and effort and please give these sites a viewing or two today. The picks and comments are after the jump.

Even Aaron Afflalo is like, "Wow, dude, I've seen myself play way I should even be able to lick the first round, let alone get drafted in it."

I predict that, with the # 3 pick, Billy Knight will choose the 14 year old kid who just verbally committed to USC.

I would say that there's no way the Sixers won't use their three 1st round picks to trade up, but I don't put anything past Billy King.

you know you're a basketball guru when you get two people to say "you stole him from me" when you make your pick at no. 28.

With the trades and acquisitions made going into the draft, plus the bulk of the team that is carried over from last season, and the trades and draft picks made during the draft, it sure seems like the Pats are going to be the team to beat in the AFC this season, and perhaps in all of the NFL.

Considering the Pats were almost in the Superbowl last season with a pathetic receiving corps and that they've added very talented players into said receiving corps this season, barring some nasty injury(ies), they look to be the team to take it all.I say injury(ies) because I think they could survive an injury or two to some positions, but if they lost Brady they'd probably have a hard time recovering.

I wish I could say that the Redskins did well in the draft and/or in free agency but so many holes still exist that I'm not sure they'll be significantly better than last season. I suppose on face they should be if they can keep their corners healthy. With Landry (argh, hard to type that name as a Redskin!!) back there with a healthy secondary they might be able to cheat up more and put more pressure on opposing QBs. Might.

They still have what should be a lot of talent in the receiving positions, and Campbell should be better, but they don't have the quality on either line (offense or defense) that I wish they'd have, so it could be yet another year of .500 at best, or worse.

Still, the NFC East looks to be the NFC Least again this season. None of the teams there look like they'll be that good, and none really look ready to step up and take the division.
