A few weeks ago someone came on the forum and I happened to be watching and volunteered. seemed like a good group of guys (DCFFL) and certainly had a bunch of draftnicks (most of the picks made sense given team needs, and the draft went bye quickly... it started a day before ours, and is just ending now).
Below is who I picked, as well as as link to the draft itself if you'd like to critique. A few thoughts:
- I was hesitant to take Floyd in the first given I don't count WR quite as high as others on the priority list. But he was clearly BPA, and I was hoping that a DE would come around to us at 50 given only Ingram and Coples had gone in the first 18, The only other guy I seriously considered was Poe. But I'd be really surprised if this staff would take him.
- As it turns out, all of the top DEs (including the OLB hybrids) were gone by 50. Crick can play LDE or DT in this defense, and is a high floor guy we need given we need help at both DE and DT IMO. It had me shaking my head at that point, because my top priority is another potential 10+ sack guy, and Crick isn't that. But he's a very good player and a good 2nd round value.
- I loved the rest of the draft. I think all the rest of the guys are 1 or more round better values than they will actually go.
