That combined with their many needs has draft pundits projecting picks at nearly every position.

    Sorry, you do not seem to understand the drat point chart at all……..

    • Tony Fischer

      The draft point chart is just a guide. It is based on a numerical value assigned to a particular pick and the teams needs. The chart also depends on how each individual team values picks vs. players. There is no universal chart. If their was then we wouldn’t need mock drafts and a huge show on ESPN with constant speculation on picks. Everything would have been done months ago,

    ESPN is an “entertainment” network and how else would they fill the month between FA and the late draft with out Mock drafts ? and that’s just what they are Mock…… all for fun….. and for football starved fans……the point charts are far more than a guide they have become an industry standard….. unless you are Jerry Jones and trade Herschel Walker to the Vikings………
