My top three (and i wont vote for myself) are:

Buffalo (DieHard)-still lots of holes on Defence but at least the team will be more exciting to watch.

Oakland (Navy Dave)-Not as exciting as Buffalo but 4 solid picks. Moving up to get Haynesworth could turn out to be a very good move for Oakland.

New England (SPare)-Grant should pare well with Seymour, their first from last year, other picks all solid. Maybe could have got more for Bledsoe but there were no other good offers (as in real life).

Too many good ones so I'll exclude my own :halo: and cheat a little. :evil:

1. Buffalo

2. Tie between Indianapolis and Oakland

3. Tie between Baltimore and Houston

Honorable mention: New England and St. Louis did very well picking at the end of each round.

Nice job by all. :cheers:

Hands down, Buffalo is the winner from this draft. Yes, I helped out with this, but getting James, Bledsoe and Shields, plus all those picks was brilliant. Of course, not much of this would happen in reality.


2. Minnesota for taking a sweetheart of a deal from the Bungles. Getting an LT and pass rusher is sweet, even if it meant giving up Joey Harrington. They addressed the team's weaknesses well.

3. Houston had the extra picks, but did a good job in going with Peppers and Ramsey over Carr (unlike reality).

4. Balmer did a good job just for simple quantity without giving up much, and still getting decent folks in return. There are a few names on that list that I might have liked to be around at the end of the round.

5. Indy. Completely pie in the sky to trade James because of the cap, but retooled pretty well for the defence. The only question is whether James' replacement is up to the job (remember, the Colts kinda sucked on offence last year, even if the guy did stand in for James for most of the year).

I also think that I did an OK job, though I wish that there was more out there for Bledsoe. Straight up, trading Bledsoe for Grant and a 4th rounder is a bad deal. But circumstances being what they are, and me wanting the fun of actually making the extra picks, I think that it worked out OK. I'll see what Pats fans would think about my results and get back to you guys.

Hey Romo sits to pee - Yes, Buffalo still has plenty of holes of defense... but consider where the franchise was BEFORE the draft? :) It was a team which required a COMPLETE overhaul on BOTH sides of the ball which would've taken years. In single draft, they've rebuilt the offense into arguabling one of the league's best. And the core of it remains relatively young.

If I'm Buffalo's GM next year... they would spend their entire draft rebuilding the defense with 1 or 2 key defensive free-agent acquisitions and this team would be ready to make a run.

Which is a far cry from where Buffalo sits this very second :laugh:

Die Hard- I wasnt trying to criticize your draft, i did rank you first. Just pointing out that even if Buffalo were able to do as well as you did they would still have a ways to go before challenging for a division championship.

Kinda like my situation with Baltimore. I could have gone one of 100 different ways filling the holes with that team and still not managed to make them a contender. Buffalo, Baltimore, Carolina, Detroit just to name a few need at least 2 years to rebuild.

Romo sits to pee - I wasn't taking it personally. I was just shooting the breeze dude. Trust me... I KNOW Buffalo has some huge holes on defense. But I think with Trev Faulk/Brandon Spoon and a couple of young former first-round picks at corner... we've got a good young nucleus on defense as well. However, right now... it's one of the weakest in the league.

Buffalo and Houston got the most bounce for the ounce.

Honorable mention goes to Seatle. They didn't make any big splash trades but they weren't afraid to gamble on greatness. It took guts to grab the undersized pass rusher extraordinaire Dwight Freeney at 20 and then follow it up with the vastly under rated Josh McCown in the third.

  • 8 months later...

Yeah, you're on my list. But then again, I'm on my list too. :D

The drafts I liked (taking into consideration their draft positions and in one case who they actually wound up with are as follows, in no particular order:




NY Jets

...edit.. now that I look at it, VoR is looking like a mighty smart man, with his estimation all the way back on April 17th.

Hey Tom, it's the ExtremeSkins annual mock draft. For the past few years... members volunteer for different teams. Around the beginning of April we start... and every GM gets 24 hours to submit a pick - in an ongoing Mock draft thread - or can submit one by proxy. Trades would ideally be done before the draft... but it isn't prohibitive if completed within 24 hours of having to make a pick.

We'll start informing members about a month before the draft. So stick around in the offseason... and you can play :)
