(April 20, 2004) -- This time of year everybody's got mock drafts. The CIA, the Vatican and the Department of State are all working on mock drafts. Bill Gates is pouring over stat sheets to figure out whether the Chargers should take Eli Manning or trade out of the first pick. Kim Jong Il has temporarily suspended threats against South Korea while he calls around to scouts to try to predict whether Will Smith or Kenechi Udeze will be the first defensive end chosen. Every sports web site, sports magazine and sports talk show is sagging under the weight of mock drafts -- none of which will turn out to be right.
But how many mock drafts really mock the draft? Enter the annual Tuesday Morning Quarterback Mocking Mock Draft!
1. San Diego Chargers: Diana Taurasi, guard, University of Connecticut. She has heart, determination and intensity, three qualities currently absent from the Bolts. Also, she's significantly better-conditioned than any guards on the San Diego roster.
