If you’re one of those fans who likes to place your brain on the torture rack to predict whom the Green Bay Packers and other NFL teams will select in the first round of the draft, here’s the pain pill I prescribe for you. Wait for Bob McGinn’s mock draft this Thursday in the Journal-Sentinel.

Avid Packers fans have known Bob’s insightful analysis and in-depth reporting for decades. He culls information from unnamed scouts, personnel directors, and other trusted sources across the league to provide extra depth to his coverage.

There are more than 100 competitors selected annually for the THR ranking, including well-known evaluators Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN, Mike Mayock of NFL Network, and Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

McGinn is summa cum laude among those who make a living doing this. In football terms, he’s the Aaron Rodgers of making draft predictions. He has the stats to prove it:

You’ll get 2 points for matching players to the correct team and 1 point for correctly predicting a player in the first round. Tip: your score will be much better if you read McGinn’s predictions first. They come out Thursday.
