Welcome to Pro Football Network’s Mock Draft Simulator! In creating this, we envisioned a process that allows users to have a nuanced draft experience on both your desktop and mobile device — 100% free of charge.
Want to do a series of quick drafts for comparing cohorts? You can do that. Want to have a two-hour long, methodical draft and recreate the realism of the NFL Draft? Done. With user-to-sim and sim-to-sim trades, no two drafts are the same!
Once you begin the simulation, you’ll see four icons in the middle section to help you navigate your experience:
1) Team Needs — Click on this to activate a cheat sheet for each team’s current needs.
2) Propose Trade — Click on this to trade up or down.
3) Pause/Resume Draft — Click this to stop or begin the simulator, allowing you to think of new trade possibilities and customize the experience as much as you see fit.
4) Restart Draft — Don’t like how things have gone? Restart immediately and change draft parameters.

Enhanced trade coding and trading future picks
Users can trade with the sim-controlled teams, and sims have the ability to trade with one another, all operating under a sophisticated trade algorithm that is shaped by real-life trade agreements.
Not to mention, having the ability to trade this year’s picks AND next year’s picks add new dimensions to the trading process that maximize authenticity.
Adjust the simulator’s speed
