With so many publications and TV stations putting out mock drafts, it all seems kind of ridiculous. Who can really predict every pick in the first round, let alone the entire draft?

Sure, you can predict team needs but who can’t do that. So with that said, we decided to put together our own mock draft. Each team gets a pick, based on something they need.

Enjoy the Steel Nation Association Mock Mock Draft.


Team Pick Reason
Pittsburgh Steelers A 250,000 seat stadium. There isn’t a Steeler fan out there who doesn’t want to attend a game live. So the Steelers decided to pick the largest stadium in the history of sports to accommodate as many fans as possible on Sunday afternoons. 
Baltimore Ravens A New set of team colors Tough guys don’t wear purple, the Ravens decide to man up and pick a color to fit their tough guy mentality. 
Cincinnati Bengals A law abiding Citizen The Bengals figured they need at least one on their team. 
Cleveland Browns A Prayer They need more than one to get to the promised land but figured they better draft on to get moving in the right direction. 
New England Patriots A better way to cheat Since getting caught cheating, the Pats have not won a Super Bowl. The team figured they better devise a better way of not getting caught so they can win titles again. 
New York Jets A QB Controversy This is a requirement for the Jets 
Miami Dolphins Someone with Integrity Clearly the team lacks this guy so they figured they better add at least one to the roster. 
Buffalo Bills A time Machine The Bills figured the only way they’d get good again is to go back to the early 90’s. 
Indianapolis Colts A new Twitter password for Jim Irsay The team figures the only way to keep their crazy owner off Twitter is to draft a new password and keep it from him. 
Houston Texans Someone Who Actually Cares about them Reality is, nobody cares about the Texans so the team decides to draft someone who does. 
Tennessee Titans A better name They currently have the worst name in the NFL so they decide to fix it by drafting a new one 
Jacksonville Jaguars A New City The team finally realized the only way they’ll survive is by getting a new city to play in 
Denver Broncos A Ball that bounces their way In the big games, that hasn’t happened for them so they decided to draft one that would. 
Kansas City Chiefs A Pick Up Truck It’s the only way to get Andy Reid on and off the field these days. 
Oakland Raiders A Clue They haven’t had one in over a decade 
San Diego Chargers Cool Temperatures With the perfect weather year round, the players stop caring about football and only care about surfing. The cool temperatures were brought in to refocus the team back on the task at hand. 
NY Giants A Ball that only goes to their players It’s the only way to stop Eli from throwing picks 
Washington Redskins A new owner They finally realize they can’t win anything with Danny Boy so they draft a new owner. 
Dallas Cowboys A real GM Jerry Jones finally understands he’s not an actual GM and brings in a real one to run the football operations. 
Philadelphia Eagles Santa Clause After booing him out of the stadium years ago, they decide to bring him back to make things right. 
Green Bay Packers A QB who isn’t a jerk. They haven’t had one since before Brett Favre. 
Chicago Bears Mike Ditka They decide the only way they’ll truly be relevant is to bring Iron Mike back. 
Minnesota Vikings Brett Favre He’s better than any QB they currently have and lord knows he’d probably play. 
Detroit Lions Changing football into hockey. It’s the only thing they win in that town. 
New Orleans Saints Another devastating Hurricane It took that to motivate the team last time so they decide to draft another one. 
Atlanta Falcons Deion Sanders They decide to bring Prime Time back to make them relevant again. 
Carolina Panthers A league change The team decides they are better suited for Arena football and draft a league change. 
Tampa Bay Buccaneers A Pirate Ship They figure they need one to board so they can get out of town after continually disappointing their fans year after year. 
Seattle Seahawks A better musician to attach themselves to. Out of all the great music to come out of Seattle, the team hitched their wagon to Macklemore in 2013. They realized what a drastic mistake this was and they draft a truly talented Seattle musician this time around. 
San Francisco 49ers A punching bag with Jim Harbaughs face on it Everyone in their building wanted one. 
St. Louis Rams A highlight reel of 1999 They needed something to watch that they could enjoy 
Arizona Cardinals A Toilet Bowl The team realized they belong in one.
