    You may see Odrick as #15 of their board, and i let you guess the rest. If anyone's interested :)

    Later on you can Missi up in the second column (2nd Round) see Jerry, J. on the fourth. Don't know if there's any other out there.

    The names are in the order of preference.

    And take this explanation as well:

    EDIT: It looks like that's not a predraft board, but after the draft.

    i think it's not. the players are ordered by their preference.

    Later on they completed the draft board by adding next to the players name who drafted the player and in which round.

    You can see Sean Lee drafted by dallas at 2-25 on the first column. You can't tell the name, but you can see that the name starts with an S, and that he was drafted by dallas at 2-25 as the picture was described. He wasn't drafted in the first round, but he's on the first column, meaning that if all the names above of his would've been chosen.. he would've been drafted by dallas in the first round, and not in the 2-25 :)

    so it pretty much looks like a pre draft board.

    Oh. I see. My bad. So the players are ordered, and then teams are added as they are drafted.

    Interesting that Misi was rated higher than Hughes.

    Definetley not.

    Look where they have Pittsburgh, next to it they have Kyle Wilson, and next to Kyle Wilson's name they wrote Jets and the round number and pick where they were drafted following.

    Looks to me like they had a mid-4th round grade on him, not high 3rd. Not that I care, I think Jerry was a great pick.

    Some interesting findings....
    Jax 1st round DL was rated early 3rd round
    SD 1st round RB rated low 2nd
    Misi rated above Hughes Sergio KIndle AND Brandon Graham!!!!
    Dan Williams rated mid to late 2nd round
    Rutgers OT had 3rd rd grade
    Kindle had a third round grade, Graham a 2nd.

    They had two Penn State LBs rated 1st round. SF picks up N. Bowman late in the 3rd and Dallas had him rated late 1st.

    Yes, I can confirm it. He was picked in the 2 rd with the 43rd pick. Look at it close. You will see Kindle,S 2-43 at the top of the third row.

    Look just below where his shirt sleeve becomes his wrist sleeve. You will see 1-26. That is Dan Williams with a mid to late 2nd round grade.

    Jets and Bills 2nd round picks look to be graded as 4th rounders ;)

    ....if each column is a different round...

    I assumed that the names left out were players that they would not have considered at all. Seems like the list is of only those that they would take in that round and the order of preference. About 20 or so names per round makes good sense, it would be difficult to see your pick come up and not have a player left in that round with 32 picks in it.

    Nice find. Thanks.

    It doesnt look like the teams and pick number were written in after the fact. Its a dry erase board, and the player names and draft spots are written with the same ink saturation, which tells me the player names and pick number were written at the same time imo. Im probably wrong, but thats what it looks like.

    no, I think you are exactly right.

    looks like that had those magnetic cards for each player and removed them as each player was drafted....then wrote in the player name, team and pick number in that spot.

    so the cards that are still on the board are available players...which makes them stand out and be easily identifiable as still available, and looks like they have more info on each of those cards about the players (maybe contact info?)

    Good find - very interesting...

    first round rankings on this board were:

    1. Bradford
    2. McCoy
    3. Suh
    4. Okung
    5. Trent Williams (!)
    6. Berry
    7. McClain
    8. Haden
    9. Spiller
    10. Iupati (best guess; all but the “I” is obscured)
    11. Obscured
    12. Obscured
    13. Bulaga
    14. Lee
    15. Odrick
    16. Pierre-Paul
    17. Morgan
    18. Wilson
    19. Pouncey
    20. Bowman
    21. Best
    22. Alualu
    23. Gresham

    So according to this, Odrick was great value, Alualu was way early as most of us believed.
    Looks like Misi had a round 2 #3 grade which was pretty close to where we got him and J Jerry had a round 4 #11.

    Interesting stuff - Thanks for posting this.

    That's pretty sloppy, is that how they really do it? I figure they'd have some high tech big touch screen monitor or something.

    This one you can see a bit more and blow it up
    It's really interesting and unusual to see this kind of stuff.

    As someone else said - it's pretty low tech. They could at least have some lines and columns on there to make it easier for them to see everything.

    Once again - thanks for the great post.

    Navorro Bowman in the first round just proves once again that the Cowboys under Jerry Jones inevitably turn into a non-cheap version of the Bengals.

    Musings:

    - Tyson Alualu, who the Jags took at 10 is about 22nd on their board if you look down at the bottom of the first column. He's listed just ahead of the TE Gresham at the very bottom of the picture, who the Bengals took at 21.

    - The last name in column 2 (round 2?) at about #16 is Jimmy Clausen. I find it hard to believe they actually had him pegged as the #48 person in the draft which is where he ended up being picked.

    - Is that a 3rd round grade (column 3 at the top) on T Anthony Davis who SF took at 11 in round 1? They must have thought that was an amazing reach....and didn't they move ahead of us by a spot just to take him?

    - Looks like they had a high 2nd round grade on Brandon Graham who the Eagles took at 13 in the 1st round.

    - Patrick Robinson was a high 3rd rounder on their board, not the last player in round 1 where the Saints took him.

    - They had Toby Gerhart as a mid 3rd rounder and not a mid 2nd where the Vikings took him.

    - The Cowboys apparently only had a mid 3rd round grade on Rodger Saffold who the Rams took at the top of round 2.

    - They had CB Kareem Jackson as a 2nd round pick who the Texans took at the 20 spot in round 1. You can barely make it out under they guy's forearm (you see a ,K and Hou 1-20). BUT....the number above that one is either 1-26 or 1-25....so that's either Tim Tebow they have as a 2nd rounder or NT Dan Williams who went to the Cards in round 1. That's about player #42 if I've counted down the list correctly. And that's two spots lower than Taylor Mays who is just ABOVE the guy's forearm (to the left of his wristwatch).

    That's all I got.

    I would 'guess' most have several different Draft Boards. All will be very careful not to make a mistake & miss their guy or a bargain.

    Board 1: Ranking all the Players (these are the numbers we see)
    Board 2: Their 'targeted players', placing them where they may be drafted
    Board 3: (picture we see) The Tally Board WHERE DRAFTED Players with their Rankings are recorded, to ID trends/needs of other teams.

    All will try to get their Board 2 Targeted Players (& watch them like a hawk) .... but might use Board 1 to ID a great value ... while watching Board 3 (the picture) to anticipate what others will do or possible trades.

    FYI ... Zoom with your browser & easier to see.
    i.e. They have Jerry ranked 3-23, but accidently put him in the 4th-Round column & NOT 3rd Col where we drafted him .. probably just a mistake.

    Anyway ... every team is going to rank different & 90+% aren't around 5 years. So fun, but doesn't really matter as everyone has a high failure rate.

    NO AJ Edds anywhere I can see from Rds 1-7. Whatever name is under his hand in the mid-third round is a short one. Might have had Edds there?

    uhmmm, it's real easy to see what this is. It was the Cowboys Mock draft on where they thought players were going according to their insider talk with teams and guesstimations.

    After each name they put the round and selection number once they were picked to reflect where the player really went.

    I have no idea where all of these other complex explanations are coming from, because they don't match up to what people are saying.

    And how exactly would that help the Cowboys make their picks?? That would be utterly useless. They are clearly ranked by preference. The players with higher grades are at the top. Not sure why that sounds so complex. As the players are drafted, the magnetic strips are removed from the board and replaced with team, round, and overall pick number. Sounds simple enough to me.

    wait, so you dont' think NFL teams mock out before hand how they think the other teams are going to pick?

    Honestly, sometimes I wonder how I have kept coming back here for so long.

    So Jerry Jones is really just in charge of measuring his mock draft vs the actual draft picks..... interesting. And we all thought he actually was in control of the Cowboys draft itself. That's quite a scoop. You should inform ESPN!

    In THAT friggin picture (you know... the one that started this whole thread) the players are ranked by grade. The only purpose in GUESSING how OTHER teams will draft is for trade purposes. Your attitude is deplorable. If you knew as much as you think you do, you would've understood this from the start.

    lol yes apparently the whole point of the draft is to create a mock draft and compare where they go vs where you thought they would go. I always thought teams drafted the players THEY graded the highest.... I had it all wrong!

    its not a mock draft, they only listed 16 players for the 2nd round... how can that be a mock?

    i dont know why this is confusing to anyone... they start the draft with cards listing every player in columns by their round grade, and then listed in order in that round... after they were picked they removed the cards and wrote down the name, who picked them, and when...

    anyway love seeing this kind of stuff, i always am fascinated by scouting and how teams truly feel about players...

    errr, as stated already, teams have multiple boards they are constantly working from, changing things around, etc. I'm sure this mock board is just one of many.

    Really folks, stop trying to be so "smart" and 1-upping everyone, and try a little common sense before you post.

    it is their draft board...you seem to be the only one who can't see that.

    if it was their 'mock draft' why do they not have 32 players in each column.

    do you not notice that S.Lee the player they traded up for is listed in the first column (the name is obstructed, but you can easily see the 2-55, which is where they picked him)....because they had a first round grade on him, which is why they traded up to make sure they got him.


    multiple boards? that sounds like a great way to stay organized.....besides you always hear coaches and GM's talk about staying true to their 'boards'.

    Schelprock is simply getting owned in this thread. That doesn't even make sense to be a mock draft. Why? They don't have 32 teams per round on their board.

    The reason for that is not all players fit the 3-4 or their offensive scheme, so they don't have them ranked.

    To think this is a mock is quite foolish, and to have the cocky attitude and be so wrong is high comedy.

    I honestly doubt teams make mock drafts except as a drill, in order to practice and be prepared for draft day and the different scenarios that could unfold. I'm also sure they make notes of which teams are interested in the players they like. But seriously, to have an actual board with their mock which they check up against reality to see how it matched up? That's pretty loony.

    Anyhow, like the others said, this is clearly their "Board". You know, the One.
