Here it is. Discuss!

--We do all 7 rounds. There will be a 24 hour time limit in round one, a 12 hour time limit thereafter.

--Trades are definetly IN. Trades that both parties agree to just need to get PMed to myself or anyone helping me run the draft, just so we can change the order.

This was a pretty tough decision to make with who to go with at #1. The lions have so many holes, especially on the defensive side of the ball, that really anybody could have come off the board and it would have made sense.

Curry would have been a great addition to the defense, but I thought in improved offense would help the defense out by keeping them off the field. Crabtree is wild card right now with his foot and not really a need. Stafford was not going to be the answer this year and I thought that the Lions would be better served going after a QB next year instead of rapping up #1 money in a guy with a lot of question marks. Andre Smith took himself out of contention with his combine hijinks.

I really liked Jason Smith out of Baylor. I think he has the most upside of the first round OT's. The lions really need people that can come in and play this year though and Monroe seemed to fit that bill. With Monroe on the outside with last years pick Cherilous on the right, the have a couple of tackles that could be on their line for years now. This also allows their current LT to slide inside to guard, so the pick really addresses two needs in one shot.

For what it's worth, I'm hoping Detroit or the Rams take Curry. It will really put the Chiefs in a position to take someone that has a greater chance of not working out.

Honestly, I was not real high on the Lions taking a QB #1. They need to be able to not get their investment killed and be able to run the ball before they can concentrate on QB. I took Monroe over Smith based on the fact that Monroe is more ready to come in and play from the first day.

Rohirrim
02-25-2009, 09:10 AM
Even with the loss of two inches and the foot problem, I still think Crabtree is the top offensive player in this draft, and that's what the Rams need more than anything.

Mediator12
02-25-2009, 09:14 AM
Rams need defense big time too, but Crabtree is real hard to pass there. There is no defender, outside of Curry, anywhere near selecting at that point though.

I would love curry a Bronco. However I think ILB is not as high priority as the D-line and OLB position (of course maybe curry can play OLB). Ultimately I think it was a lot to give up, but if you're going to do that, getting the best player in the draft is not a bad deal at ALL.

Seattle will be looking pretty and should have a great draft.

This is fun! I can't wait for ours to start.

I would love Curry, he would be a fantastic SOLB in any system, he can cover, he can blitz, he is FS fast and he is a solid tackler who can really lay the lumber. If I didn't have a huge man-crush on BJ Raji I would be drooling at the prospect of getting Curry, who for my money is the best player in the draft.

Hey all, I lost the edit button on the picks page. I thought if I edited it frequently then I could keep editing it. Nope.

I've got a PM out to see if I can get the edit feature back. Until I hear something, please just keep a tally of the picks on a piece of scratch paper by your PC.

If we have to, we'll update all the picks within the thread, but that will make for a long, messy, and hard to follow draft. I'd like to avoid that if I can.

Thats really what this comes down to.
If you make a trade in the top of the draft, and the two parties just argue over every single point on a chart, then it just falls apart. There really was no bartering for picks. I wanted one more (colbert 5th rounder) , but being a homer for DEN and trying to have fun in a mock, i just said screw it, SEA now has a bunch of high picks, who cares. SEA has holes all over. I need high picks bad.

LOVE the trade for Curry. The guy is amazing. I would get goosebumps getting that guy. He's gonna be a machine at the next level. Question is, where do you play him? He literally could play ANY spot in a 3-4. He has size, speed, rush and cover abilities.

I know from experience, the hardest spot to fill in the 3-4 is the SAM LB spot. It doesn't get a lot of pub because there is a lot of coverage involved including taking out the strong side of the formation every play. But you almost want to take the reigns off this kid and let him run and make plays.

Interesting trade. I hate to lose a 2nd rounder in a deep draft but to get Curry who will be a 10-12 year starter, multiple pro bowler in my opinion... sometimes you just gotta pull the trigger.

Drek
02-26-2009, 04:46 AM
Sorry for the slow selection, was out of the office all day and then when I got home the internet was on the fritz. All good now though.

Wow how does that trade come out on the points chart? I would think we needed to give up more to get the #4 pick!! woohoo

Its debatable. Some newer draft value charts are lowering the premium on top 5 picks to reflect all the guaranteed money a team has to hand over. In the trade value chart thread (stickied on this forum) you can see that a fairly recent PFT chart shows just this and would consider #4 worth 900 even while #12 is 790 and 48 is 186, for a total of 976. The value of a mid-4th in that draft chart.

The traditional chart does peg it at about a 180 point difference, but then I think that draft chart is losing relevance in the NFL. I think a real world deal that Denver could easily get squared away with Seattle would be #12 and #48 this year as well as an '10 3rd or 4th based on record (if Denver is in the top 15 its a 4th, otherwise a 3rd). That includes a little bit of a trade up premium and doesn't require the Broncos to exhaust their '09 resources completely.

Of course socalorado tried to extort another pick but I rebuffed him because Denver gave up all it could afford to give up. Now I'm looking forward to hitting those late round sleepers that only a handful of you will probably even recognize. :D

Exactly my feelings BPC. We've got too much value tied up in how our SOLB does his work with Champ on that side, and at the same time in today's pass happy, receiving TE era you need an SOLB who can man up on a guy down field and make plays in the passing game.

It won't be all grunt work for Curry though, he's got all world talent at every aspect of playing the OLB spot. He might start at OLB but as our depth chart would fill out with capable 3-4 backers we'd be able to move him around to inside or WOLB as needed and let him create problems there as well. He'd also probably need to move inside in nickel and dime formations as it is since Larsen isn't great in pass coverage, with Woodyard or Boss Bailey filling in at SOLB.

He'd also be much more blitz capable than your average 3-4 SOLB and by making use of that we'd force offenses to look away from the weak side, letting Dumervil, Moss, or whomever else is at WOLB have an easier time getting to the QB.

Broncoman13
02-26-2009, 06:56 AM
Good job Drek. Curry is the only guy in this draft worth trading our 2nd for. Not to say other teams wouldn't be smart to move up for a few different guys. The OL, Stafford, Crabtree, etc. But for the Broncos, Curry is the only guy that really makes sense. His versatility is a big draw. Love the pick, truly I do. But also would have been fine had you decided to trade down a little bit and get multiple guys to play LB/DL. Lots of options and I like the way it's turned out thus far.

Drek
02-26-2009, 11:07 AM
I would be surprised if Smith doesn't get selected before Monroe.

A lot of people consider Monroe the more well rounded of the two, most notably as the better run blocker.

So from a "can't screw up this pick" type of situation Monroe is the guy you'd want to bet on from the OTs.

The Trade for Curry is great but very unlikely.
Its been over two decades since an MLB went #1 overall and that guy was actually a big bust.

They slide a little, for a similar reason as to why centers don't ever go in the first and fullbacks are almost always a second half of the second day thing. Doesn't matter how great a player is, a value is attached to the position.

For Detroit, they already have a big chunk of change tied up in Ernie Sims at LB and it isn't a premier position in Schwartz' defense. I could see them as being at least as likely to take Raji as Curry, but ultimately they need to fix their OL as badly as any other unit and Monroe is the safest bet to make a big upgrade there, especially since it lets them move Bachus into OG where he probably belongs himself.

Living in St. Louis, I could see the Crabtree selection as they are now shopping Tory Holt. They're also shopping Orlando Pace. I'm almost positive they'll go WR or OT and won't take Curry.

So that puts the ball in Pioli's court. A lot of people think KC would go hot and heavy for Curry to help them make the 3-4 transition. Maybe they would. But Pioli didn't draft a LB in New England until they let the LB crew get so old and thin they had no other alternatives. If one of the top two OTs (Monroe or Jason Smith) is still available I could see the making that pick. I also wouldn't be surprised if they go with Stafford. The tells (Pioli being Parcells' son-in-law, Pats avoiding LB until it was an absolute need, and a Pioli student in Dimitroff hitting big on a #3 overall QB last year with Ryan) tells me they won't look LB as much as some others think and will instead want to go OT or QB, hitting one of the "franchise" positions.

That would put Curry in Seattle's lap, who we could very possibly work a trade out with, especially if Curry is gone. Its entirely doable. The real question is if the FO could finagle it. I'm not expecting it, but I'd be incredibly happy if we did it.

Smith wasn't asked to do a lot of traditional run blocking at Baylor as they operated from the spread a lot. He appears to be athletic enough to be a very good run blocker.

I dunno...The upside seems higher to me with Jason. I don't want to focus solely on the measurables...but Smith is much more athletic.

That said...there doesn't seem to be a lot of separation between Eugene and Jason. If the Lions go OT for #1....it might come down to the best contract they can negotiate prior to the draft from either one.

That would put Curry in Seattle's lap, who we could very possibly work a trade out with, especially if Curry is gone. Its entirely doable. The real question is if the FO could finagle it. I'm not expecting it, but I'd be incredibly happy if we did it.

This is where you lost me...why would we trade with Seattle if Curry was gone?

This is getting stupid, where the hell is the contingency plan? Kick out whoever is dragging his feet and lets get this show on the road.

Hey all,

In an effort to keep this thing moving, I jumped in for thump and will be running the Falcons. I'm gonna ask thump if he wants the Panthers, but if you know anyone who'd like to jump in the draft, let me know just in case he's not interested.

Yea, i had to go with Britt. Nicks was my first choice so i had no alternative there as i need a top tier wideout for Flacco.

This mock needs a good run of fast picks to get it going again.

I got 3 guys ready so when my time comes I can get a pick in and keep moving.

Seriously guys, throw a board together real quick. Get an idea of need and who will be available at your pick and throw together 3 or 4 different options.

Im sure it doesnt help that the server keeps going down either. I wasnt even able to access this board until a couple of hours ago.

Same thing is happening to Mediator12. He called this morning to ask if I was able to get on. He said he has his pick ready and to go ahead and make it for him. He is selecting Graham Harrell, QB Texas Tech. He will then look to trade Peyton Manning for additional picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.






































;D

He'll be on shortly to make his real pick. I will PM my pick to somebody in case I can't get on later...

i thought the Broncos wanted to trade up for Harrell?

ya the Cutler problem seems to be flooding these boards. Wrong timing since were in this draft.

Britt in the first round is surprising to me.... But I think he will be a good player.

Mediator12
03-03-2009, 01:08 PM
I have two trade offers that were here when I got on to pick. I'll make a decision quickly say 20 minutes or so or select.

Colts are thrilled to get Matthews. He was a Colts filter player and his versatility to play OLB/DE in nickle situations, while being a fast larger statured LB was just too much to pass on.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised to see Matthews have the best career in the NFL out of all the USC LBs.

Me neither ;D I was not about to bring him into the discussion before selecting him, But I am very excited to see him play. He is just the type of player INDY would select around there and the type of player I like. Has a tremendous amount of upside, Works hard with a chip on his shoulder, and really executes in pass rush, run stopping, and coverage. I think he is the player with the highest ceiling of the bunch, plus he has a solid floor. Also, this guy WILL be an everydown LB or DE in the nickle.

I also agree and would just LOVE it if Matthews was there at #48. Depending of course on #12.

I was starting to wonder if Davis might somehow fall to my pick with the Browns at 36.

I am currently discussing a trade down... If I don't hear anything back in the next hour or so I will make my pick. I'm ready, just want some picks if possible b/c I think my guy will be there a little bit later.

I think Laurinits might have made it 33.... Good player tho, will be solid LB for many years.

I was worried about someone coming in over the top and getting him. I was more than happy to make the jump to get in position.

Didn't cost any picks either just position

03-03-2009, 09:47 PM
The run on WR's pushed him down a bit. But you are right he most likely wouldnt have lasted to 33.

Your doing a much better job than Millen has ever done with the Lions. ;D

STUNOdaKing has 5 freaking posts. FIVE and has been a member for a short time (couple of months). WTF??? How does somebody that has 5 posts in two months get in on the OM Mockdraft? BORN ON DATES!!! Somebody draft for him already... F the 24 hours, he has 5 posts in 60 days. He was here yesterday which means it will be St. Patty's day before he comes back. FLIPPIN PICK ALREADY!

Next year we have to sign only those who are committed to this. We'll have to devise a pledge or something. If you blow it, you're not invited back. Take down some names.

Honestly, I saw this happening when a bunch of people with >500 posts started volunteering for the mock draft while seasoned posters who have participated in the past were left out. That is how we ended up with two mock drafts instead of the usual one.

At the risk of sounding elitist and being bossy I didn't say anything but I seriously wondered how these people would perform when the time came.

Hopefully as the ones causing the problems are kicked out we can fill the spots with people who are going to take this seriously and get it going again because I am having a blast with it this year.

Most of them have performed well. Stuno is the only guy that hasn't shown up. That's why next year we'll have a vets draft and a newb draft.

Why does he get 12 more picks before he is replaced?! That is way too long....

Well, in the 2nd round we go to a 12 hour clock, so it'll go a bit faster. And I know Schism's PC went down and that's why he was late in the other draft, so I wanted to make sure it wasn't that, either.

It has been almost 30 hours since a pick has been made.

PM your picks to someone if you don't think you will be online for a while.

I am not blaming you at all, JCM....I know you are doing everything you can do.
