While Skeen may be absent from many mock drafts, he pays no attention to the lack of hype surrounding him.

“I don’t check them,” Skeen said. “They are not accurate at all. People that do the mock drafts are guys that just sit at home on their computers and sit on the Internet — that’s not accurate.”

There won’t be a big draft-party blowout at the Skeen residence; he prefers the simple comforts of his family. Come Thursday night, Skeen expects to hear his name called.

He’s not cocky, he’s just confident.
