    How did Chad Reuter get a job writing for NFL.com?



    Anyone who has read his work, will not need further details. How, how does something like this come to pass?

    His 7 round mock up is a lot better than WalterFootball's IMO.

    The only one I definitely can't see being the pick is Jordan Jefferson.

    Only pick I like is the burfict in the 7th round. He probably had he most upside out of that entire draft.

    Yeah...other than Jefferson, while I'm not a fan of some of those picks, they aren't the outrageously bad picks I expected after reading some of the responses here.

    Never heard of him but you don't think he should get a writing job because you don't like some picks in his mock?

    Any chance Jefferson transitions into a receiver or h-back in the NFL? If he's got the athleticism to do so, then I could see us picking him up as a project. Let him play gunner on punts in the meantime maybe to provide value in his rookie year?

    Maybe I'm dead wrong about how good an athlete he is but if he could pull off the transition it would make the pick make sense.

    It looks almost identical in the first round or so, after that who knows. Pretty bad mock from a Ravens perspective

    I'm curious...what specifically is so awful about this mock?

    I wouldn't mind drafting Jared Crick in round 2.

    Yeah, I mean they aren't the top guys I'd want, but the top 3 picks IMHO are solid.

    I have not watched Jake Bequette so I can't really comment on him.

    I like Hillman.

    Haven't watched Matt McCants either so again can't comment.

    Don't like Jefferson at all.

    And Burfict in the 7th?...I'll take it.

    This guy's draft is not bad in any way, shape, or form. I'm not sure what the uproar is.

    Konz has been the guy who has been most frequently mocked to us. No problem there. I'm not in love with him, but I've heard/seen a lot of names at pick 29 that I hated (Doug Martin, Harrison Smith, Alshon Jeffery, Hill).

    Crick in the 2nd round is not a bad pick at all. This guy can play. As some of you may have seen, he is the player I had us taking in the 3round. I think pick 61 might be a tad high for him (I think 75-90 is more realistic), but he had a very productive career at Nebraska.

    Streeter in the 3rd round is another solid pick. Streeter has been mocked to us in round 3 of various drafts for months now. When I was doing my mock draft, I had a choice between Crick and Streeter and opted for Crick. Streeter is unpolished like Hill, but with a little less athletic upside.

    Like everyone, I hate the Jefferson pick. I like the Burfict pick and am okay with the Hillman pick as well.

    It's not the best draft I've seen, but far from the worst. IF you want to see a bad draft, go to yahoo sports and look at their mock draft. They are the ones having Doug Martin going to us in the first round. Their logic in taking Martin was that the Ravens would be a 5-11 team if Ray Rice got hurt and they needed an insurance policy. Utter stupidity. No RB is worth 5-6 wins a year.

    Same question - other than Ravens fans not liking their picks, it's a reasonable mock IMO

    FWIW, I will shit a brick if we draft Jordan Jefferson. And not the good kind of brick shitting. Jefferson was beyond awful as a college QB, let alone pro.
