I hope to heck you threw it all at my top guy. Getting knocked down into tiebreakers would be my only chance of getting someone who is actually drafted.

Hi friends. 2016 Orangemane mock draft champion PRBronco here. Let's talk about the UDFA round. Last year I won the mock draft with a staggering 1004 points. But that doesn't tell the whole story. Did you know that 196 of those points were from the UDFA round? I know some of you might think the UDFA round is "lame" or "jive", but without those points, I would have finished 6th. And then life wouldn't even be worth living. So whattya say? Why don't you get out there and give the UDFA round a try? I think you'll find you just might enjoy yourself.
You need a tag line for the UDFA round at the end of your spiel.

Kalan Reed (who was Mr. Irrelevant for TN) and BJ Goodson got me some points in UDFA. I think I also got Derrick Henry selection right for TEN, but by MUG's gorilla math I was like 45th in overall rankings out of 32 teams.

I did manage to pick up this dude in the UDFA phase last year:

No, I have my board on a sticky note at home. Planned to do it over lunch, only to come home to the power being off, then coming back on, and having a few fuses blow in my breaker. Every room but 1 has power now, unfortunately that room is my office -- and it's not marked on the breaker.

There was a power outage down main street through most of the town. I live right off of main street. I'm guessing that when it surged back on, caused some issues. At least I got the major things taken care of. I'm having a buddy come over to make sure my assumptions on twoolder fuses is right before I do anything else. They are super old glass knob fuses and I didn't wanna mess with them. I'm guessing they need to be relaced, but not sure if 15 / 20 amps. *shrug shrug*

The friggin Chargers drafted Donovan Clark who was like my 45th contingency pick, it shot me into the stratosphere.

Is it Friday yet? Just wondering if I'm going to cry into my lucky charms over not getting Weston steelhammer for that $85,000 bid this morning.

sorry for mentioning a name, but it's one I already dropped in the discussion thread.
