Mock draft simulators

Recommended Posts

I have been doing the Fanspeak for a while. Mostly, it allows you multiple runs at a simulation using multiple draft boards. That more closely resembles the controlled chaos of a real draft and allows you to get a feel for where you can hopefully expect one of your favorites to fall (as that player isn't valued as high as you think on multiple boards) as opposed to when that is more likely (the opposite - when a player is generally valued lower, but has is likely to have a couple of suiters you are going to have to outbid if you want the player). Repetition is more interesting to me than any one particular pass-through, it allows you to develop general plans for navigating a particular set of talent. Anyhow, this is mine from today (with one trade back):

 

2: R1P2
 
EDGE NICK BOSA
OHIO STATE
43: R2P11
 
WR DEEBO SAMUEL
SOUTH CAROLINA
67: R3P3
 
G CHRIS LINDSTROM
BOSTON COLLEGE
88: R3P24
 
S JOHNATHAN ABRAM
MISSISSIPPI STATE
104: R4P2

LB KHALIL HODGE
BUFFALO
213: R6P38
 
S LUKAS DENIS

Oh, this is by FAR my favorite. No need to go and do it myself. I would copy and paste this one!

Well, okay maybe I would look into getting Sione Takitaki....but that is the only change I would make, I promise.

Took a stab at her too with a couple of mid round trade backs and this is what I ended up with. Two more smurf receivers but I didn't really see many better options available at the times. I doubt I need to go into the first two at all, they are fairly commonly debated/talked about around here. Dieter was one of the highest guys on the board and I am of the opinion we need interior line help badly, same thing goes along with the double pick in the 5th round with Jordan. Benny Snell is kind of the Alfred Morris of the classy, extremely high effort runner, short gain back. Hardman is a guy I'm sure not too many have heard about, he's on the smaller side, think poor mans Antonio brown. Wont get out athleted by anyone, speed to burn but a little raw. Savion Smith would be a role player, played for the tide, although it was for one of their poorer secondaries in some time but still should be very disciplined. Sutton Smith, very productive at the college level as a rusher, worth taking a flier on late, same thing with Renfrow. And the TE I simply have no idea on.

Thank you! I could make notes on many of the picks, but the main one I guess is the second rounder where I had options. Deebo Samuel has really grown on me. He reminds me of Pierre Garcon in Washington/Indy and would fit a similar role for us. A smidge below 6', 210+ and stocky, with really strong hands, change of direction explosiveness, after the catch skills and relatively mediocre top end speed for a smaller guy (I think Deebo, like Garcon, will be a high 4.4, low 4.5 guy). All of these traits fit with Garoppolo's (and Mullens') skillsets. Where Garcon had really big hands for his size, Deebo has nonsense hands, and they show up on tape. Plus, he has nonsense long arms for his height (he has arms longer than Anthony Johnson and David Sills V, for instance). He is way better at contested catches than a man of his height generally has any right to be. I love his competitiveness and drive. And he did just spend the week roasting fools at the Senior Bowl, including being just about uncoverable in the red zone. My one concern would be injury history. But, for me, he offers similar traits to guys like, say, Riley Ridley, but has proven himself on the field. Ridley hasn't had nearly as many reps. And I want a starter at one of the outside WR positions pretty close to immediately.

I'd be pretty happy with this draft tbh. I'm not sure why they didn't give me the 7th round pick - unsure if we have now officially lost this pick or not to Cleveland, which is possible. If we haven't, the pick probably would have been Justin Layne, who was somehow still on the board at that point.

These mock draft simulators keep dropping DK Metcalf, and I don't see why.
