BBI Mock Draft DISCUSSION Thread

Matt G : 4/2/2017 10:32 pm
We will use this as a discussion thread to keep the picks thread uncluttered. These threads will be used for the duration of the entire draft and will need to be bumped occasionally to push them back to page 1 of the forum.

Once a team is on the clock, they will have two hours to make a selection. If a team goes on the clock after 4pm, their two hour window will roll over to the next day. For example, if you go on the clock at 4:30pm, you will have until 9:30 am to make a selection. Picks may be made between 6pm and 9am if GMs are online and following the draft thread. The time limit only applies during the 9am to 6pm timeframe. If the two hour time limit expires, I will make a pick using any list that the GM for the team has sent me in advance (send lists to the email address in my profile) or in the absence of a list, I will use the GBN Big Board with a little discretion so as not make an obvious dumb pick (ie: Indianapolis Colts wont be taking a QB in the 1st round this year). If a GM misses two consecutive picks without providing a prospect list or making some form of contact with me (email or posting on the draft thread) the spot will be reassigned to one of the BBIers who have expressed an interest to fill the vacancy.

Once again, I strongly encourage ALL GMs to utilize the BBI Mock Draft Spreadsheet . The spreadsheet contains the draft order (RD1-6) by team and GM with a fairly comprehensive list of both available and taken prospects based on the GBN Big Board (as well as several other prospects that did not make the GBN Big Board). I will try to keep the spreadsheet and thread updated as often as possible.

Anyway, I bet he's sent in a draft list to Matt. Unfortunately, Matt is in a meeting most of today. He indicated that it should be over at 3.

pick


Love the Tedric Thompson pick. Thought he was going to be available for my list in the 6th. His pass defense for a Safety is second to none in this draft. Great ball skills and has amazing instincts. He had a QB rating of 21.3 in balls thrown his way to go with 7 picks and a ton of PDs also. He isn't the best tackler because of his size, but he isn't horrible either. At worst I think he makes it as a Nickel safety and a solid backup... that is worst case IMO.
5 picks to finish the round!

Thanks..i almost picked him with my prior pick in this round, I even emailed it to Matt. I did see he was way down the GBN big board so was thinking about chancing it for my next pick...but losing Jefferson to Baltimore I figured why not
Homemade gif time again  
Lionhart28 : 4/20/2017 3:25 pm : link
Eric Saubert, the last draftable TE on my list. I was hoping Roberts would fall, but this kid is a nice project as well.

SY's take: "*Saubert may need more time than some of these other prospects in terms of strength and skill development, but his upside rivals everyone above him on this list and I mean that. He can really run and track the ball well. His consistency isnt there yet as a pass catcher, just dropping too many balls in traffic."
MadPlaid, Torrag, and back to Optimus to finish the 5th!

Pick is in  
MadPlaid : 4/20/2017 4:02 pm : link
Decided to take a risk on potential versus concussion history. Plus, apparently he angered his college coaching staff by not returning from injury when cleared because he wanted to prepare for the NFL. Not exactly a ringing endorsement. I am taking a chance on him because with a comp pick late in the 5th seemed a good place to do it. He was a play maker when he was on the field especially in 2015. Let him work as a backup/rotational d-lineman while he learns what it takes to be a team player.
Just so you know

With instructions to fire my pick as soon as he sees that I am on the clock. If I am in the middle of packing I don't want to hold things up for you's guys.

I will be happy with any of the 4 players on the list I sent to Matt, so feel free.
Pats select Chad Kelly QB Ole Miss  
Torrag : 4/20/2017 4:54 pm : link
We don't do deals in the BBI Mock for obvious reasons. That said there is a strong possibility Garappolo is moved on or near Draft Day. If that's the case they'll be looking for a guy to develop and Kelly has the bloodlines and arm talent.
Miami back on to finish out the 5th  
Amtoft : 4/20/2017 5:18 pm : link
before we start the 6th and final round!
Just made my pick for the Fish

Going to bed now fools.
Cleveland selects Andreas Knappe  
Lionhart28 : 4/20/2017 5:50 pm : link
with our penultimate pick. Dude is a legit viking. A 6'8", athletic, viking. End of scouting report.
Ravens final pick is in  
Mike in NY : 4/20/2017 6:57 pm : link
Don't worry Lionhart, you did not take my BPA this time. Knappe was in my top 10, but I liked Tevi's experience at both LT and RT plus I think he could potentially play OG as well. I also needed to throw a bone to my western scouts as they were planning a mutiny with Arkansas being the furthest west I had gone with my previous picks.
Oh no...  
Amtoft : 4/20/2017 8:36 pm : link
why did these get unpinned? We still have one round left.

Jacksonville (Kevin in CT)
Cleveland (Lionhart28) (from Hous, Chi)
Los Angeles Rams (BigBlueTT)
Los Angeles Chargers (armstead98)

Kevin on the clock
I do not think the UDFAs should be part of the official draft results

Don't mind the haters. It is useful to find lesser known players who may have been overlooked in Mock Draft.

Nope. You post who you want. First one to name a player gets him. Most people name all 5 people in one post. Others will try to quickly get a post out with one or two names if they think a player might go quickly and post remainder of their five later
and a lot others dont participate

I contacted the mods about the unpinning. Apparently, one of us told them we were all done and to take away the pins. Yes, that's right, we have a traitor among us! Fetch me the soft cushions, I will get a confession out of him.

I feel empty inside if I don't see a gif with your picks. Think of my needs for a change, will ya!?

I should I have slept in this morning. The commute into work was brutal. Usually takes 45 minutes. Today, 2 hours. Ugh!
Alerted

Bigbluett That he is on clock. Should have a pick shortly
Did Matt already fix the summary from Pick 160 onward?  
Big Blue Blogger : 4/21/2017 11:20 am : link
The list he posted at 10:12pm last night on the Selection thread was off by one line, starting with the combination of the Viking and 49er picks at 160/161:
Quote:
160. San Francisco (Pete from Woodstock) (from Was) - Minnesota (allstarjim) - Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo

NJ Transit?
Just to clarify my question, it seems that...  
Big Blue Blogger : 4/21/2017 11:35 am : link
...the teams are wrong for picks 161-163, then the Titans' pick of Shelton Gibson at #164 was omitted, so the teams are right again from Detroit's pick of Langley (#165, listed as #164), but the numbers are wrong.
Love the Switzer pick
