2010 Preseason Mock Draft

By jphanned

We got together 12 of the Cafe’s finest veterans for this mock draft and produced some excellent results over the past month. This year the pack has broken up a bit, and there is much more debate about where to rank players below the upper tier. Do you draft the player who has more upside for per-game production but comes with injury concerns, or do you go for the safer player with less upside for per-game production who will not miss many games? These veterans will help you answer your questions with pick-by-pick analysis and commentary. Here are the results, enjoy!
