Same thing with McDonald, whom looks like the TE with the highest upside after Eiffert.

I probably would have docked you a grade for trading up in this very deep draft, which seems counterproductive overall, but I think you nailed the selection with Richardson, and you got steals in the 3rd, which you easily could have taken in the 2nd.

A+ for me.
I knew trading up as many times as I did was risky with this being a middle heavy draft, but I really wanted an impact DL player. Moving up again in the 3rd to get Slay was just because I had him ranked significantly higher than Wilson and didn't want to take the chance (which was a correct hunch) that he'd be drafted by Miami.
