Mock drafts – How useful are they? There is no way that the people in the mock draft will pick players the same way that your friends in your real draft will. Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Paul Goldschmidt are the first three players off the board in almost all drafts. But in which order will they go in the one draft that matters?
I have the third pick in a 10-team league, with extra positions such as, CI, MI and a minimum innings per week in the high 20’s. All of these intricacies cannot be reflected in mock drafts. There are rumors that Mike Trout will drop to THIRD in my draft.
The sole reason why I do mock drafts is for the fun of it. And that is the approach you should take too.
