For the 2nd straight year, Craig was very accurate:
- Correctly matched 24 teams with the round.
- Correctly predicted a pick for 5 teams, but was off by one round.
- Predicted a pick for the Raiders in the 6th, which they didn’t receive. The Colts received that pick instead. In the comment section of the original prediction, Craig noted that the Colts had a very rare situation this year, and could potentially mess up the prediction.
- The NFL awarded 32 “normal” comp picks, instead of 30. Craig had 30 “normal” picks and two “leftovers” going to the Chiefs and Jags, the first two teams in the draft order. The Dolphins got one of those unaccounted for picks, and actually, the Chiefs got the other. I’m sure Craig will explain these minor inaccuracies in the comment section.
All in all, an incredible job. Here’s what he predicted, and what each team was actually awarded:
|Team||Round||Player lost||Did we get it?|
|Packers||4||Matt Flynn||5, not a 4.|
|Dolphins||4||Kendall Langford||5, not a 4.|
|Titans||5||Jason Jones||6, not a 5.|
|Raiders||6||Michael Bush||Raiders were not awarded this pick. Colts received a 7.|
|Giants||6||Aaron Ross||7, not a 6|
|Steelers||7||William Gay||6, not a 7|
|Jaguars||7||Additional pick||Dolphins got a pick|
|Chiefs||7||Additional pick||Chiefs were awarded a 6th round pick|
