MOCK DRAFTS ARE A JOKE, JOHN McCLAIN PROVES IT
Written by: LM
Full disclosure, I've stop paying attention to Mock Drafts because of crap like this. I called someone a troll, let that sink it,
There was a time I thought some in media really put out Mock Drafts they believed. Lately I am finding out, Mock Drafts are nothing but "web traffic". Very few in media actually believe their mock drafts and is only trying stir controversy.
Of course someone will say "Duh LM"! Well, if everyone knows Mock Drafts are complete crap why does it become a topic on radio shows? The simple truth, some of us do know Mock Drafts are BS however there are many fans who are clueless who listens to the media as gospel.
It is what it is, lazy media caters to low information fans, I'm not breaking any news.
However, I like to illustrate how Mock Drafts are a joke.
Since, the end of the 2013 NFL Season, John has been beating this drum, Texans are going to take a Quarterback in the first round. Then I see this tweet. This simply tells me, John McClain don't give a damn and will write only to stir up clueless fans.
I cannot ignore the timing, John did this off the heels of one of the few public comments by Bill O'Brien at the NFL Owner's Meetings. O'Brien said he will take a QB in the draft but did not say which. Basically we have John going all QB since January, O'Brien says he's taking a QB and now John says they are taking J. Clowney. My point is not who will the the Texans select but the way John operates.
I know John has more access to the Texans than any fan and most media could dream of but he is doing what the National Media does, Throwing Crap against the wall. I fully believe John thinks the Texans will select a QB and he could be wrong but to come out and now say "I have the Texans selecting Clowney". Yeah, that's one Mock Draft I will not entertain.
WRAP IT UP
Is John McClain a Troll?
In conclusion, I believe John had a relationship with Gary Kubiak and Wade Phillips and enjoyed the perks of information. With Bill O'Brien, John actually has to "work" and information is not flowing as freely as it did before.
