drfrey13 Posted April 28, 2019 Share Posted April 28, 2019 (edited) We all like to say we wanted this player or a year from now that we were pounding the table for that player. We are lucky and get to use a little hindsight in this exercise but try to limit it by only thinking of the pick at hand and not who you know is available later on. I want to get everyone on the record right after the draft what they would have done. A couple rules first. 1. Do not go and look who is available for our next pick if you are having a hard time deciding between players. 2. You can not draft a different player at say 24 and then say that Jacobs would have still been there at 27. 3. No trades except the trades already executed by Mayock in the real draft so those are the spots you have to make the choices at. 4. I know the draft would have had a different trajectory if we select different players but for this exercise we will assume that the player we switch out would have been selected within 5 spots of our original spot and therefore limiting the butterfly effect. This is a fun exercise and only try to post your picks with a small explanation. This is so we can bring it back up around draft time next year and eat some humble pie or puff up our chest and tell everyone else we really are better than Mayock and Gruden. I will submit my picks when I get home from work this afternoon. RD(PK) PLAYER POS SCHOOL 1(4) Devin White ILB LSU 1(24) Montez Sweat DE Miss St 1(27) Greedy Williams CB LSU 2(8) Zach Allen DE Boston C 4(4) Anthony Nelson DE Iowa 4(27) Deionte Thompson FS Bama 4(35) Foster Moreau TE LSU 5(11) Mack Wilson LB Bama 7(16) Alex Barnes RB Kansas St 1. Had a hard time deciding between Allen and White but the safer choice was White who still has room to grow since he is still learning the LB position. 2. No brainer without a DE at 4. 3. Who needs to tackle if you do not let them catch it. A lot of teams are going to regret passing on him. 4. Here is a Base end I like. Quick enough for the pros and built like a tank. No more Jet sweeps. 5. Would have gone TE but to much value here plus he mitigates some of the risk in taking Sweat. This is what I consider edge depth. 6. He had been falling since the championship game but good value in the 4th. He is not a Joseph clone and should compliment Joseph. 7. We need a TE an although I called this the night before sarcastically he is not much of a reach and could develop into a starting TE. 8. I would have called you crazy if you told me I could get him in the 5th. A player that started dropping during the post season for no reason. Some added speed and youth at LB. 9. I really like this guy here. This is my short yardage and 4 minute offense back. Completely underrated and he will show up next year as soon as he gets some carries. Feel free to bring this up in the future and tell me how stupid I am if I am wrong but right now I think Mayock's draft is a C/C+ and this is an A.
