    KATD Draft Picks Discussion Thread

    And so it begins. Dilbert takes Joe Montana with the first overall pick. He had to be the pick there. That's the way I would have gone at least.

    I was hoping he'd drop, but since he didn't, my strategy has changed. Good luck to all.

    Surprised to see LT #2 but can't knock the pick

    Agreed, was not expecting him, but you cant go wrong with LT. I wonder if that will force YK into a 3-4 Defense. Will be interesting to see how he plays it.

    Well yea he has to be running a 4-3 to take full advantage of LT

    I might have considered trading back, however my time for this is limited somewhat and I didn't feel like working out deals. I will take what ya'll give me :) He was #3 overall on the NFL's all time list and I have decided to go defense first. I like 3-4's more than 4-3's, I think historically they have had a better run of it too (calling Still Life)...

    I guess I'll be the dissenting opinion that thinks it's too early for LT.

    Rice was a good pick.

    The next pick should be rather easy IMO. Then it will get interesting.

    Perhaps a tad, but not much. I think he'd have been gone by pick 5 or 6. Had YK taken Rice, I'd have strongly considered taking LT at 3.

    Let me guess. Butkis wasn't who you expected... 8-)

    Rice is a good pick. He really is 2 levels up from 99% of the other receivers. Almost every other GOAT isn't near that unique.

    I'm not trying to be pessimistic here, but FinsFan hasn't been here since the 27th of October and a few others haven't been on in 3 or 4 days. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. I really don't want to have to go through the hassle of trying to replace people(s).

    I'd say if anyone times out on their first pick they should be replaced.

    I agree 100%. It's far easier to find a replacement when the person doesn't have to take over a team with players he didn't choose.

    Let's start fishing for back-ups just in case. Do we have anyone else who has expressed interest?
