1) FanSpeak On the Clock Mock Draft Simulator
This one can be as simple or complex as you make it. Follow their easy steps:
1. Select the team you'd like to draft for.
2. Select how many rounds you'd like to draft.
3. Make your picks for your team while the simulator chooses for the other 31 teams based on the best player available and updated team needs.
Here's an example of the finished product via BGN community member Anthony DiBona:
This would be my dream draft for the #Eagles if they don’t make any trades. They could use some o-line depth though. pic.twitter.com/RMinDk2xP6— Anthony DiBona (@Anthony_DiBona) May 3, 2014
www.first-pick.com allows you to create your own mock draft too. You select your favorite team and follow through the draft pick by pick (there's an option to skip to through picks if that sounds too tedious). A "trade up" option is available if you want to move up and you are sometimes presented offers from other teams to trade down when it's your turn on the clock. The trade values aren't always perfect. Sometimes they're just not very realistic at all. It's up to whether you want to take it seriously or just have fun. You have to sign up for a free account to use the site.
Here's an example of how my mock turned out:
