Chad Ford Accused of Changing Old Draft Boards to Look Smarter

ESPN Insider Chad Ford is known for his NBA draft boards. He spends countless hours each week talking to scouts, GMs and other great basketball minds to come up with the most accurate projections for the NBA draft.

His past mock drafts have been incredibly accurate. Or have they….

According to Deadspin, ESPN went back and doctored old mock drafts after the actual draft took place in an attempt to make Chad Ford look like a prediction machine. Here’s a look at a screen grab of Chad Ford’s 2013 big board before and after the draft.

ESPN has since changed the archived board back to the original picks.
