If a mock draft falls in the forest...

and no one is around to hear it, do Mel Kiper and Todd McShay still argue about it?

Here are some suggestions on making a mock draft on CincyJungle.com:

1. Be sure to include all seven rounds in your mock, especially if the following apply:
a) not all juniors have declared so you don't even know who is actually draft-eligible
b) no all-star games have been played and no combine results are available, so it's not clear who is really "NFL ready"
c) no cap cuts have been made so you don't even know who will actually be available in free agency
d) no free agent moves have been made so you don't know team needs

2. Include at least one Ohio State player, even if it's a position of low-need

3. Defend your projection to the death and cast away any doubters to your perfect plan.

4. Create a new mock 1-2 weeks later that effectively shows your previous mock to be worthless. Defend this new mock to the death as well!

5. If anyone questions the usefulness of mock drafts in general and points to the success rate of "real experts" being less than 25% correct, ignore said comments and post another mock - this time with trades with teams you don't really follow and therefore have even less clue about their needs.

6. Laugh
