It's Feb 6th, and I just completed my first mock draft of the year. Just one week ago, I finished my first iteration of my projections and rankings, and was happy to test them out right away.
For those that want to get straight to the point, you can see the full board here.
Overall, I was very happy with my team. I had the number 2 pick overall, and only a few times missed a guy I was targeting. Here is my team by round:
Overall 2 - Pick 1.2 - Jose Altuve
Overall 23 - Pick 2.11 - Gary Sanchez
Overall 26 - Pick 3.2 - Stephen Strasburg
Overall 47 - Pick 4.11 - Alex Bregman
Overall 50 - Pick 5.2 - Kenley Jansen
Overall 71 - Pick 6.11 - Eric Hosmer

Overall 266 - Pick 23.2 - Austin Hedges
Overall 287 - Pick 24.11 - Brandon Belt
Overall 290 - Pick 25.2 - Jake Odorizzi
Overall 311 - Pick 26.11 - Yasmany Tomas
Overall 314 - Pick 27.2 - Tim Beckham

Collectively, I think I ended up with a team that will provide above average power and speed, along with an elite average. From a pitching perspective, I should be very strong in the ratio categories as well as saves. If this was a real draft, I'd have confidence that this team could compete to win.
Some guys that I was targeting but just missed were Eddie Rosario, Paxton, and Mazara. I made due without them, but would have felt even better with them.
Thanks to Howard Bender as always for coordinating and RealTime Fantasy Sports for hosting.
Finally, one feature that I enjoy is the integration between RealTime Fanrasy Sports and the Fantasy Pros league analyzer. Here are the results for this mock, feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.
