I did one on Fanspeak just for the heck of it. Weird that Scarbrough was available in the 5th round, thought that was too good to pass up even though we have Howard and Cohen.

7: R1P7
EDGE ARDEN KEY
LSU

39: R2P7
WR DANTE PETTIS
WASHINGTON

109: R4P7
CB BRANDON FACYSON
VIRGINIA TECH

110: R4P8
WR DEEBO SAMUEL
SOUTH CAROLINA

145: R5P7
RB BO SCARBROUGH
ALABAMA

186: R6P7
OT BRETT KENDRICK
TENNESSEE

229: R7P7
S NICK WASHINGTON
FLORIDA

I went five rounds because I generally figure most NFL drafts are about 150-160 picks of football players and a hundred or so lottery tickets that might or might not amount to something.

1: R1P7
DL CHRISTIAN WILKINS
CLEMSON

2: R2P7
CB/DB TONY BROWN
ALABAMA

3: R4P7
EDGE ADE ARUNA
TULANE

4: R4P8
OT CASEY TUCKER
STANFORD

5: R5P7
WR DEEBO SAMUEL
SOUTH CAROLINA

Incidentally, I expect Aruna to test extremely well athletically, so I'll be astonished if he makes it to Day 3. But in this context, I snapped him up.

I'm thinking this draft will be majority offense. WRs and OL

It feels depressing to be using the fanspeak draft simulator this early but with the prolonged firing of Fox I have to amuse myself somehow!!
I used the difficult setting, the fanspeak big board and the computer set to random for it's draft board.
I took a trade for the no 6 pick fro the cheese heads getting a R1 pick 18, R2 pick 18 ,R3 pick 18 & R3 pick 38!!
I traded the R3 pick 38 to the Eagles and got R4 pick 30 and R4 pick 32.
Here is who I picked and I tried to stay best player available for the first four picks ;

18: R1P18
OT MIKE MCGLINCHEY
NOTRE DAME
38: R2P6
CB JOSH JACKSON
IOWA
50: R2P18
WR SIMMIE COBBS JR.
INDIANA
82: R3P18
EDGE DORANCE ARMSTRONG JR.
KANSAS
108: R4P6
TE MIKE GESICKI
PENN STATE
109: R4P7
WR DANTE PETTIS
WASHINGTON
132: R4P30
DL TRENTON THOMPSON
GEORGIA
134: R4P32
S GODWIN IGWEBUIKE
NORTHWESTERN
144: R5P6
CB IMAN MARSHALL
USC
185: R6P6
EDGE MARCELL FRAZIER
MISSOURI

I finally did one.

12/17
Fanspeak/Fanspeak
no trades
as always, skipped any overly unrealistic options (eg, Josh Allen available in R4 - ???)

8: R1P8
OLB ARDEN KEY
LSU

McPhee's sorry ass is finally out of here

40: R2P8
WR EQUANIMEOUS ST. BROWN
NOTRE DAME

After looking over the most recent list of WRs who will be hitting the market, I'm pretty soured on trying to solve this with free agency. I'm very anti-R1 WR, though. The dropoff to R2 is pretty small, I think.

110: R4P8
ILB JOSEY JEWELL
IOWA

I've got one of the 3 midround picks slated for ILB.
(It's really crazy the lack of consensus on ILBs - one site will have a guy on Day 2, another will have him so low, he'd be lucky to get an UDFA camp invite. Rankings have nearly 0 correlation.)

115: R4P13
WR PARRIS CAMPBELL
OHIO STATE

Another midrounder is slated as a luxury pick. Here I went hard at fixing WR.

147: R5P8
QB LUKE FALK
WASHINGTON STATE

And the 3rd midrounder probably going to a developmental QB

186: R6P8
K DANIEL CARLSON
AUBURN

No explanation required

Matt Miller Bleacher Report on Classic

7: R1P7
EDGE BRADLEY CHUBB
NC STATE

39: R2P7
WR CHRISTIAN KIRK
TEXAS A&M

109: R4P7
WR ANTHONY MILLER
MEMPHIS

114: R4P12
DE CLELIN FERRELL
CLEMSON

146: R5P7
CB DJ REED
KANSAS STATE

185: R6P7
C COLEMAN SHELTON
WASHINGTON

Bradley Chubb will not fall to us on draft day and if he does, it's a no-brainer. He can play 34 OLB and pair up with Floyd to be a formidable 1-2 combination for years to come.

I loaded up on big-play WR's with speed in R2 and R4 with Kirk and Miller. Our offense needs some speed and youth. Having Cohen as the only dangerous weapon that can take it to the house is problematic because he's a 5'6 RB.

Ferrell won't be there that late but he's an interesting talent and can play as a 34 DE with his size and length IMO. Might have to bulk up and put on like 10-15 pounds though.

Reed is a pure ball hawk and good athlete for a R5 value. Could add depth and be an eventual starter IMO since Fuller is most likely leaving.
