The Draft Simulator is an efficient way to practice for your draft. It’s similar to doing a live mock draft except that you’re drafting against our computer simulated opponents (which uses a selection of expert cheat sheets and ADP sources).
We suggest that you try both live and simulated mock drafts, but there are a few key benefits to using our Draft Simulator…
It’s fast and fun.
Live mocks are great but it’s often frustrating trying to get into the mock draft you want, and even more frustrating waiting for everyone to make their picks (a live mock can take over an hour to complete).
Our Simulator can let you complete hundreds of mock drafts in very little time. If you want to test out different drafting strategies or just quickly see the type of team you’ll likely end up with based on your cheat sheet, our Simulator is a great option.
Speaking of options, you’ll be able to take your time with each and every pick (and even revert picks if you want…wouldn’t that be nice in real drafts!), or auto-draft the rest of the way.
It’s accurate and realistic.
Have you ever been in a mock draft where some bozo takes a scrub in the first round just to be funny? It happens more than you would think.
Also, many of the computerized auto-picks run off of a straight ADP with no regards to team needs or position scarcity. If many of the opponent picks are not that realistic, you’re not going to get an accurate picture of how your real draft will unfold. And, isn’t this the whole point of doing mock drafts in the first place?
Our simulator takes things a little more seriously. It uses real cheat sheets from a random selection of experts and ADP sources from all the major draft sites.
Our opponent pick algorithm uses logic that mirrors how most drafters make their decisions during their drafts. We factor in player rankings, team needs, and position scarcity to determine the most likely selection.
It’s what you’ll use during your draft.
This is key. If you plan on using our Draft Assistant during your real draft, you’ll be happy to know that the Draft Simulator and Draft Assistant share the same interface and features. So you’ll know exactly how to use the tool during your draft. The last thing we want is to create any additional stress!
