Some Draft Fun for Everyone


Hey, everyone! HAPPY DRAFT DAY!

Yesterday, I found this fun daft simulator over at Fanspeak.com. It's an impressive mock draft sim that allows you to select a team, a number of rounds, and then lets you put on your GM hat. It's a lot of fun, and I recommend it to everyone as the draft excitement builds today.

Feel free to post your mocks in this thread.

My draft was an interesting one:

Round One - Pick 11: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

The first round played out with many of the elite players falling in the top 10, leaving us with few options at 11. Bridgewater, Mack, Clowney, Watkins, Evans, and Matthews were all gone. Examining our needs and the relative BPA's, I went with Beckham Jr. He'll fill a need as a kick returner and will add a young, versatile receiver to our already-talented core. We'll finally have a solid set of receivers and will give Jake and this team more tools for success -- look at Cordarrelle Patterson's effect last year.

Round Two - Pick 42: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

The rest of the first round played out, allowing me to scoop up Hageman with our second-rounder. He very well could prove to be a bust, but as Stephen White pointed out:

I wouldn't take Hageman in the first round, but you would be a damn fool not to take him in the second round.

Round Four - Pick 112: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn

In probably the greatest twist of fate in the draft, Tre Mason managed to fall to the fourth round -- perhaps because of injury fears. We snag some fantastically-valued RB depth and a potential lead back.

Round Five - Pick 151: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan

We all know Michael Oher won't be this team's right tackle for long. In the fifth round, we get a solid right tackle, who -- with a little coaching -- could start for this line soon. What more could you want from a fifth round pick?

Round Six - Pick 186: Cassius Marsh, DE/OLB, UCLA

Rather than reaching for Anthony Barr at 11, I waited to grab a versatile pass-rusher later in the draft. Marsh was a huge success alongside Barr last year at UCLA, and with Lou Spanos to keep coaching him up, Marsh could easily be a staple on this defense's rotation almost immediately. Marsh is this year's Xavier Gooden

Round Seven - Pick 228: Anthony Fera, K, Texas

Even with our final pick, we're able to address an area of need. Fera was an unstoppably accurate kicker last year. Although he doesn't have the strongest leg, he's reliable and solid on kicks under 50 yards. In this mock, he was the best kicker available with Coons and Freese selected much earlier.

All in all, I think it was a pretty successful draft. We'd supply a huge number of players who could contribute immediately and give this team the firepower it needs to make a splash in 2014. Feel free to post more mocks and discuss below!
