The same conundrum applies to fantasy football.  Do you draft the players you love ahead of where they are adp'd or do you wait and risk someone else also secretly being enamored with them?  It is true that they could have at least traded down a few spots and safely landed Colin Farrell.  But sometimes front offices know things and the press misunderestimates.

 

Not exactly the same, but I understand your point. Like I said, if that's the case, trade down. There was a serious chance he could've dropped out of the first round. It is what it is.

:unsure:  Oh well, I can still be half right if the Packers draft a receiver with their 30th pick.  But I'm glad they went defense.  The offense will be great with Rodgers without blue chippers.  Put draft capital into the defense.

 

 

An odd draft for the Packers. I think there was much better talent and value on the board when they made those selections. I like both players but not where they were picked.

Jawann Taylor was ranked as the #1 Offensive lineman in this draft and expected to go in the top half. He slid far enough for the Vikings to take him but they passed on him for Bradberry. I was hoping they would trade back into the first round and grab Taylor too. Then Taylor slides all the way out of the 1st round. I can’t find anything that explains why, and none of the guys on the broadcast mentioned anything as a reason why he has slid either. Does anyone here know why?

Taylor has some sort of knee injury

Super plugged-in @BobMcGinn has #Florida OT Jawaan Taylor tumbling all the way to No. 29 over concerns w/ knee injury.

No but they both suck

I lost McShay after he claimed MN Gophers QB Mitch Leidner would be a 1st round draft choice before his senior season started.  I thought it was a joke at first when somebody told me about it.  I am not sure if he was even drafted.  It makes me wonder how good McShay is at his job.

Ok, it was driving me crazy that none of the guys were talking about it on the broadcast.

did anyone see the spot with gronk and edelman teasing the rookies about trying to take their jobs? I didn't. My wife just told me about it and edelman said gronk is going to play and gronk just shrugged his shoulders?

yeah

 

remember the rumor last year that new orleans was set to pull the trigger on mahomes and kc leapfrogged them?

 

you hear the same kinda stuff about daniel jones...giants fans and people saying "they could have gotten him at 17"....but what if hes there at 15 when washington picks is he still there? what if someone jumps ahead of them between picks 7-16?

The Pats always do well. They always seem to get those perfect fits rather than fishing for a star. They are a machine.

Is it just me or was that the most unsatisfying, boring draft ever? 

I just don’t think there was much offensive talent so pretty boring from a fantasy perspective.  There is not one can’t miss blue chip prospect that I heard about.

Also the ones that may pan out are developmental QB’s and TE’s who don’t tend to make much impact the first year. No huge RB or WR candidates.  Just not much there period for skill positions, at least top end.  Kyler Murray seems like a bit of an exception given he’ll start right away but how much are you expecting?  Prob not that much.  Compare to last year with lots of dynamic QB’s, Barkley, Penny, Michel, Ridley, DJ Moore.  The best prospects in this draft were OL and DL guys.

I agree. I thought days 1 & 2 were great for them. Day 3 was very dissapointing to me. But I do love those first 3 picks I think they nailed them.

I think the Steelers had a great draft. But what the hell was Devin Bush wearing?

day 3 is going to disappoint most...because the reality is that most people arent going to have a damn clue about any of them and likely have never seen them play lol
