BBI Mock Draft – DISCUSSION Thread

Matt G : 4/1/2018 10:46 pm
We will use this as a discussion thread to keep the SELECTIONS thread uncluttered. These threads will be used for the duration of the entire draft.

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 (i.e.: Philadelphia Eagles won’t 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.

Please 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.

I forget my draft already, so I better post it all at once  
Andy in Halifax : 4/19/2018 1:30 pm : link
so I can refer to it later:

Sam Darnold, QB USC
Orlando Brown, OT Oklahoma
Shaquem Griffin, OLB/Edge Central Florida
Kerryon Johnson, RB Auburn
Marcel Ateman, WR Oklahoma State
Nick Nelson, CB Wisconsin

Greg Stroman, CB Virginia Tech
Roc Thomas, RB Jacksonville State
Grady O'Connell OT/OG Washington State
Damn, I have one meeting and y'all are  
Lionhart28 : 4/19/2018 1:31 pm : link
all over these UDFAs. Luckily, only 1 of my guys was taken (Greg Stroman).
If Stroman was a touch bigger I think he'd be a premium pick  
Andy in Halifax : 4/19/2018 1:33 pm : link
His production was great and he's a good punt returner.
That was hilarious  
MadPlaid : 4/19/2018 1:33 pm : link
and will teach me to take my eye off the ball. I blinked and then there were a bajillion posts of UDFA's. Fortunately, I only missed out on one player. Crazy.

Thank you, Matt and everyone for helping to make this another fun mock draft. Everyone except dk in TX. You can suck it.

He was in my top 3 since round 5, I almost drafted him 3 times.
Ravens draft is done  
Mike in NY : 4/19/2018 1:34 pm : link
Thank you Matt, MadPlaid, and everyone who worked hard on this

Now, to talk about my UDFA

Logan Woodside/QB/Toledo
Needed some QB depth and he was my BPA at the position

Trenton Cannon/RB-RS/Virginia State
Extremely productive as a runner, receiver, and return specialist at lower level. Pro Day numbers were insane. Hopefully he can be my Tarik Cohen

Darrel Williams/RB/LSU
With his ranking by Sy I thought someone would draft him. Gets high marks for work ethic and dedication on Special Teams

Greg Senat/OT/Wagner
Developmental OT

Grant Haley/CB/Penn State
Small, but feisty nickel CB. Nice workout numbers
Mike  
Lionhart28 : 4/19/2018 1:37 pm : link
Haley is a 4 year player and will be a good nickel in the league. Furthermore, he'll be excellent on special teams.
You guys were fast.  
allstarjim : 4/19/2018 1:47 pm : link
Minnesota with their draft and UDFAs:

Rd 1. Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
Rd 2. Frank Ragnow, C, Arkansas
Rd 3. Josh Sweat, DE, Florida State
Rd 5. Deadrin Senat, DT, South Florida
Rd 6. Cedrick Wilson, WR, Boise State
Rd 6. Auden Tate, WR, Florida State
Rd 6. Chase Edmonds, RB, Fordham

UDFAs

Darious Williams, CB, UAB
Nic Shimonek, QB, Texas Tech
Taron Johnson, CB, Weber State
Khalid Hill, FB/TE, Michigan
Christian Sam, ILB, Arizona State

I kind of screwed up my last pick and UDFAs, though. I definitely wanted Darious Williams and Shimonek, but I don't think Edmonds was a great pick for this team. I hurried it though because I saw the comments I was taking too long. I didn't know you guys were just waiting there with bated breath! You guys are competitive!

Only changes I would've made is to probably draft Darious Williams and then swap his spot on the UDFAs for Ryan Nall. I think I'd rather have a big back that can be a hammer rather than a quick, small one like Edmonds.

Then I'm not sure I would've taken Taron Johnson as a UDFA as I already drafted Jackson and then would've added Darious Williams to bookend my draft with corners. It's too many DBs and I like to acquire guys with a reasonable chance to make my team.

I would've done a little more research on the linebackers as well, because I'm not sure on Christian Sam. Might've gone with Chris Worley from Ohio State instead.

All in all, I really like my draft for Minnesota. I think I at least added two STRONG starters to my team, one on offense and one on defense with the first two picks, and got some upside with the rest of the draft and guys that have a good chance to contribute. I loved getting Cedrick Wilson in the 6th, because I think he is going to be a good NFL player. I was surprised at how low he was ranked on the list and that he was still available so late in the draft.


Browns UDFAs  
Lionhart28 : 4/19/2018 1:49 pm : link
Brand Silvers, QB - Troy: Good size (6'3" 220), strong arm, quick release, 5th year guy, all-time leader in TDs for in school history.

Jester Weah, WR - Pittsburgh: Fast (4.43), lanky (6'3" 210), vertical receiver with big hands. Lacks quick twitch but could be a deep/red zone threat in the league. Devalued because of poor QB play.

Tony Adams, G - NC State: Compact frame, good agility/footwork and quickness, lacks length but should be at least a rotational player down the road.

Damon Webb, S - Ohio State: SY's #5 rated safety- "Fourth year senior that has started games at CB and S. The instincts are what jump off the screen here and it is arguably the most important trait I look for in a free safety. Webb has consistently shown the knack to anticipate throws and routes with the best of them. If I had to rank these safeties based on feel, Webb would be at the top. He lacks some of the desired tools, mainly size, but in a system where a true centerfielder is needed, he is a prized asset."
The dude just makes plays. He lacks the physical tools but is a great football player who will find a spot for himself on our squad.

Tremon Smith, CB - Central Arkansas 6'0" 190, ballhawk. Aggressive corner, slightly built but fast (4.32 pro day) and athletic. Played at a lower competition level but has the traits of a shutdown NFL corner. Can play slot or outside.


Pretty happy about the Broncos draft  
jlukes : 4/19/2018 2:38 pm : link
1 - Quenton Nelson, G
2 - Hayden Hurst, TE
3 - Kemoko Turay, Edge
3 - MJ Stewart, CB
4 - DaeSean Hamilton, WR
4 - Joseph Noteboom, OT
5 - Derrick NNadi, DT
5 - Martez Carter, RB
5 - Dane Cruikshank, S
6 - Charvarius Ward, CB

QB Kyle Allen, Houston
Almost drafted him in the 5th and 6th rounds but rolled the dice. Highly rated HS QB who was really drawing some interest from teams late in the draft process

FB Dimitri Flowers, Oklahoma
Thumper who can help in the run game with or without the ball in his hands

LB Mike McCray, Michigan
Physical middle LB, great inside 34 fit

DE Zach Seiler, Ferris State
One of the top D2 guys in the draft

WR Darren Carrington, Oregon
Raw talent, immature but not a bad guy

That's a very good draft. Love the Nnadi and Noteboom picks...great value. I'm not a Dasean Hamilton guy, but it is a 4th round pick, afterall.
A big thank you to Matt for running the draft  
Rick in Dallas : 4/19/2018 4:04 pm : link

Missed you yesterday. Was wondering who you would have picked up as UDFAs.

Thanks again for helping make this possible.
Yeah, I apologize... I was slammed...

Fortunately, the tail end of the draft

was divided among only a few teams who were on the ball mostly.
Yes a big thank you to

Matt G for running this again. You rock brother. Also Mike and MadPlaid and others for always being on top of things and helping to keep this thing going. Amazing job and I could be wrong but the fewest autodraft picks in a long time right?
Great time as always  
Lionhart28 : 4/20/2018 1:38 pm : link
Good luck, y'all!
Hi Matt G - Can you please add these 5 UDFA for the Fish to the list?  
Optimus-NY : 4/21/2018 1:43 am : link
1 - QB, Riley Ferguson, Memphis
2 - PK, Michael Badgely, Miami
3 - C, Coleman Shelton, Washington
4 - WR, Byron Pringle, Kansas State
5 - CB, Danny "Louisiana Pimpdog" Johnson, Southern


THANKS!!
Feel free to un-sticky these as a FINAL RESULTS thread
