That's pretty cool.  My first attempt gave me (with incredibly superficial analysis by myself):

56
WR KELVIN BENJAMIN
FLORIDA STATE
Huge target and I think another pass catcher can only help
 
88
S DEONE BUCANNON
WASHINGTON STATE
We don't know how healthy Landry can be and a lot of people haven't liked Bethea's play this year, so it's hard to say whether he will be back or not
 
152
CB CHRIS DAVIS
AUBURN
Decent size and is a smart guy (made the honour roll)
 
184
DT DEANDRE COLEMAN
CALIFORNIA
A big body for the trenches (6'5", 315 lbs), durable, and made a solid impact at Cal
 
210
CB STANLEY JEAN- BAPTISTE
NEBRASKA

Another corner because I think we need depth there with Toler being so injury prone and even Davis having some off games and injuries.  I love his size (6'3")

My next draft (superficial analysis provided):

56
 
CB KYLE FULLER
VIRGINIA TECH
Decent size at 6'0" and very accomplished career at Virginia Tech.  He could even take some snaps at safety if need be
88
WR DEVIN STREET
PITTSBURGH
A big, productive target.  He's 6'3", decently fast (4.4-4.5 40), and is the all-time receptions leader at Pitt (Larry Fitzgerald went there).
152
OT SEANTREL HENDERSON
MIAMI
He's a monster at 6'8", 330 lbs, but has had several issues.  He's been suspended by Miami for breaking team rules, he has a history of back problems, and has some maturity issues.  He didn't live up to his hype in college, but still possesses the tools to be a great OL.  I think he needs a lot of good leadership (Castonzo, Mathis, Redding) and a lot of practice and fundamental work, but he could be really good
184
S SEAN PARKER
WASHINGTON
NFLDraftScout rates him as the 8th best SS and SBNation ranks him as the 5th best safety in the draft.  The more I read about him, the more I like him
210
OG JON HALAPIO
FLORIDA
Fairly durable (though he missed a couple games with a torn pec), and a leader at Florida.  He spent time at all five positions on the OL at Florida and could really help us at our interior 3 depending on what happens with McGlynn, Reitz, Thornton, Nixon, Satele, and Holmes

I don't follow the college game very closely, so I don't know the players as well as I would like.  But he was available and he's a big guy who was productive at Cal.  Of course, these mock drafts are never right haha

YEAH TRUE

I'm addicted.....

Latest attempt with analysis:

I went mostly defense with this draft.  I would have liked another OL, but there weren't any good ones when I was picking
57
CB KYLE FULLER
VIRGINIA TECH

Same analysis as above.  Accomplished career at Virginia Tech and could even play some safety.

 

91
DT DAQUAN JONES
PENN STATE

A big body for the trenches.  I think we need more reliable DL depth because Redding is 33, Aubrayo Franklin is 33, we don't know what we have with Montori, and Moala hasn't been anything special this year.

 

153
S JONATHAN DOWLING
WESTERN KENTUCKY

A rangy safety with good hands

 

187
WR SHAQ EVANS
UCLA

A big receiver who can help in the return game and has big play potential

 

209
OLB JONATHAN BROWN
ILLINOIS
Essentially a depth pick.  He's a little undersized for a 3-4 LB, but all he does is make tackles.  He's pretty solid in coverage too, as he had 4 pass breakups and a pick in his senior year

Rd2. CB Kyle Fuller

Rd3. ILB Yawin Smallwood

Rd5. DT Deandre Coleman

Rd6. WR L'Damian Washington

Rd7. RB Tyler Gaffney

Very Unrealistic I know but I'd take it. I know we probably don't need a RB but Gaffney was avaible thats really good value at round 7 so I took him.

It updated today at noon, so let's see if anything changes.  If they could add in a function where you could trade picks, that would be sweet. Last one, then a break (I really need to stop with this):

57
CB KYLE FULLER
VIRGINIA TECH

Analysis above

 

91
S CALVIN PRYOR
LOUISVILLE

He possesses good size a 6'2", 208 lbs.  He was productive at Louisville and can make tackles.

 

153
WR MIKE DAVIS
TEXAS

Big, durable receiver with good production at Texas

 

187
OLB DENICOS ALLEN
MICHIGAN STATE

This pick is a big of an unknown.  He's listed as an OLB, but he's 5'11", 218 lbs.  Another very durable guy who was the Sam linebacker for the Spartans.  He can certainly make tackles, there's no question about that.  His 40 time is listed as being in the 4.6 area.  But depending on how he can do, his athleticism, and what happens with his weight, could he be moved to DB?  Bob Sanders played at around 206, and Troy Polamalu plays at around 207 (according to Wikipedia).  So if we can make him lose a bit of weight and gain some speed, could he be moved to strong safety?

I know we already have a couple speedy small guys who can stretch the field, TY, Rainey although hurt, but DeAndre Thomas would be fun to use. He is just so fast! Don't know how well he would hold up, but he is quicker than Tavon Austin, but not built as well. Still, another toy that late would be nice, and he is not a receiver, so we could use him in multiple formations, and let him learn the slot.

This is from First-pick.com, which was all the craze last season on this forum. Just wanted to see what you guys thought if we had a mountain of mid-round picks. Personally, I'd be fine with it. Of course, even though about half of them wouldn't even make the team. Somewhere around the second half of my picks, I was picking based on position or value, sense it didn't matter too much in the later roundpost-15016-0-30281400-1388715877_thumb.js.

My most recent attempt:

57
C TRAVIS SWANSON
ARKANSAS

I think this is (or rather, should be) Satele's last year here.  Some have Swanson as the best C on the board and getting the best C in the late 2nd round is a steal, in my opinion.  Then, we could have a young interior 3 OL of Thornton, Holmes, and Swanson.  Add in a 25 year old Castonzo and we could have an OL group that is young, talented, and will have time to develop lots of chemistry with each other.  Our OL of the future could be set.  Cherilus is 29, so he would be the oldest of the group.  But he probably still has several good years left

 

91
WR JARED ABBREDERIS
WISCONSIN

Not only is he a good WR, but he could help out in the return game as well if we need it

 

153
S JIMMIE WARD
NORTHERN ILLINOIS

A very good SS to give us some depth, and likely several starts given Landry's injury prone body

 

187
WR CODY HOFFMAN
BYU

I know I took Abbrederis in the 3rd round, but I just didn't want to pass on Hoffman's production.  All he does is catch passes.  The more I read about him, the more I like him.  He's starting to become one of my favourite prospects

I like the Ricardo Allen pick. I watched that guy every Saturday at Purdue for the past 3 years. Awesome player.

He's been available in the 7th round of almost every simulation I've done.  I haven't looked up a really good analysis of him.  What can you tell me about him?

Good man to man corner, gets physical at the LOS. Undersized, but he's got a lot of game in him. Probably a special teamer, but depending on his development...not any worse than Josh Gordy.

C TRAVIS SWANSON

ARKANSAS

Swanson would be an up grade from Satele.  Regarded as one of the best centers in the draft.

 




91


S DION BAILEY

USC

Bailey would be a possible replacement for Bethea (this year or next).  Bailey is a 3 year starter at USC and can play either safety position.

 




153


ILB LAMIN BARROW

LSU

Barrow would be another ILB to play behind Freeman and McNary.  Barrow is versatile, can play inside and out.  He is also a solid tackler that does a good job wrapping up.

 




187


WR T.J. JONES

NOTRE DAME

A reliable WR runs very good route and has outstanding hands.

 




209


CB PIERRE DESIR

LINDENWOOD

Small school CB who will shoot up draft boards.  Very good cover skill.

I went unconventional, but how many rushing yards the defense gives up and the lack pass rushing, I decided that those were my top choices for BPA as well.  I would be pretty shocked Donald is there for our 2nd rounder, but hey...he was in my mock.

    • After doing a little research and letting things settle in for almost a week since Day 1..........   Day 1 Overall Grade: A Pick: Edge Kwity Paye 1-21 My thoughts that night: Great pick. A little surprised he dropped to 21, but stoked he did. Aside from checking all the boxes in terms of potential, he's a walk off grand slam in terms of "story" and character. Only thing I didn't like is that he was Michigan product lol, but he's all Blue now.  My thoughts now: Unchanged. 2021 Impact: Will be at minimum early contributor 1-2 downs Long term impact:  Likely to develop into a 3 down guy by year 2 if not earlier. Has the size and speed to be a really well rounded pass and run defender. Financial impact: Fantastic impact to the cap with 4-5 years of value while on his rook contract. That's huge at the DE position if he turns into the guy most think he is. What EastStreet would have done at 21: The exact same thing What made me chuckle: Ojulari dropping to 50 after some of the board talk.   Day 2 Overall Grade: C Pick: DE Dayo Odeyingbo 2-54 My thoughts that night: Surprised we took a second DE. Surprised we didn't try to grab a OT. I really "liked" Dayo pre-draft. While a lot of other folks liked Boogie Basham in the 2nd, Dayo was one of my favorite targets. That said, I preferred other Day 2/second round guys simply because of the injury timing, and the fact he likely won't contribute much if at all in 2021. Overall, I like him as a long term prospect, but I don't like him as a Colts second round pick in 2021. My thoughts now: Unchanged. Likely won't change until we're into the 2022 season and we see what have. He's a raw guy, that really shouldn't be so raw after being a 3 year starter. The good news is he won't be pressed into action early, and should have a year to work on technique. Bad news is he's likely not a factor in 2021, and that's just not good for a 2nd round pick. Had he been healthy, the grade would have been B, maybe B+. I did not let the fact we didn't get an OT impact my grading. My gut says it will be year 3 before we see production worthy of a 2nd rounder, but I love his ceiling/potential. A much much better pick than Banogu in the 2nd last year in terms of risk. I could see him being a versatile guy. Not necessarily as tweener-ish as Autry or Lewis, but still someone you can move around and could be a terror on the interior in passing downs.  2021 Impact: Little to none Long term impact: High ceiling dice roll with injury and layoff concerns...., but my gut says he'll be good in year 3. Financial impact: Not harmful, but not helpful earlier. If he doesn't produce well until year 3, we'll have missed out on half the benefit of his rook contract. What EastStreet would have done at 54: After Little was picked at 45, I started hoping Ballard would trade up a few to get Cosmi or Radunz. After JOK didn't get picked in the first 10 picks of the 2nd, I also was halfway hoping we move up to get him. Still surprised he dropped to 2-20. Once 54 came, I would have taken WR Terrace Marshall Jr., DE Payton Turner, or OTs Spencer Brown or a short list of others. What made me chuckle: Colts passing on a TE that was still there after a lot of the talk on the board.    Day 3 Grade Overall Grade: C  Pick: TE Kylen Granson 4-127 Pick Grade: C+ My thoughts that night: Not shocked, but thought he would have been there in the 5th or 6th. He's one of the guys I liked for late rounds as a pure move TE, but too small that early. My thoughts now: Not much change. Still a bit of a reach IMO. He's somewhat of a Burton clone, that likely doesn't block as well. I thought Reich featured Burton too much last year out of the slot, but also thought it was because we were lacking Campbell. Hoping Campbell stays healthy this year, and hope Granson doesn't steal snaps from either Campbell or MAC. Impact - Overall, low to medium. I think he'll be a 3rd TE option. He's really not a prototypical TE, and will play in that fuzzy space between TE, HB, and slot. Not a big fan of the hybrid position if it's going to steal snaps from true TE or true slot. What EastStreet would have done at 127: Once the pick came, definitely OT Jaylon Moore. If he can't cut it at OT, he'll be a capable OG. At worst, he'll be high end flex backup. If Josh Ball's character issue checked out, would have taken him as well.  Pick : SAF Shawn Davis 5-165 Pick Grade: B- My thoughts that night: Huh? You take a SAF and didn't move up a few spots to grab Jamar Jackson, who was graded my to be a top 3 safety in the draft. I even though about Jackson at 127. My thoughts now: Warming up. Davis does offer some potential. Good flex option that should come in and compete with Willis early on. Our scheme doesn't ask much of Willis or SSs in general, so early PT isn't out of the question. Davis has range in the 2 deep sets as well. After watching film and reading reviews, he's more gifted physically and a better hitter, but less instinctual perhaps than Willis. He's likely better deep, but not as good underneath as Blackmon. Impact - If he picks up the scheme, could compete early with Willis at SS1, or as FS2 with Odum or even FS1 duties on 3rd and longs. What EastStreet would have done at 165: No brainer OT/OG Trey Smith. If you want a SAF... move up a few spots (give up a 6th or 7th) and get Jamar Jackson, or stay and take Christian Uphoff. I also liked OT Forsythe.  Pick: QB Sam Ehlinger 6-218 Pick Grade: F My thought that night: Wow, they must not think much of Eason at all. My thoughts now: You either have to say last year's 4th pick was bad, or this year's 6th was bad lol. Weak arm, short, poor pocket presence. Not going to lose sleep over a 6th round pick, but this seemed like a waste of a pick. There will be tons of vet FAs that will be available on the cheap if you're not happy with Eason.  Impact: Practice squad guy or simply cut What EastStreet would have done at 218: There's typically no obvious or no brainer picks in the 6th or 7th. I really like WR Cade Johnson at this point, but my first choice would have been OT/OG Trey Smith or CB Shakur Brown. Pick: WR Mike Strachan 7-229 Pick Grade: C My thought that night: Another big WR project? Are they giving up on Patmon already? My thoughts now: Hasn't changed much. Aside from initial thoughts, perhaps they think he can pack some weight on a play jumbo WR/TE hybrid. Still just a raw small school guy. Impact: Practice squad guy What EastStreet would have done at 229: At this point I'm pounding the table for CB Shakur Brown or LB Dylan Moses as both could end up at minimum ST studs. I'm even thinking Ballard might take a 3rd DE and was eying Charles Snowden. If we hadn't taken Davis though in the 5th, my first choice would have been SAF Uphoff. Pick: OG Will Fries 7-248 Pick Grade: C My thought that night: We improved the OL depth guys already, didn't take an early LT, so why a very limited OG prospect? My thoughts now: unchanged. Impact: Practice squad guy What EastStreet would have done at 7-248: see above at 229 lol...    Overall Draft Grade: C+
    • And his production fell sharply this past year.  Only played 38% of defensive snaps for WFT.  He had been seeing double that many.  Still had about the same sack percentage, though.   But as a depth guy, I can see some sense in it.  Local product, outside chance for HoF, mentor for Kwity and Dayo, won’t be expensive, won’t demand high snap count.
    • I don’t think that will be the case. But they can take there time with him.
    • I love Irsay's phone conversations with the players just drafted in this latest episode.  It reminded me of the contrast between Irsay and Pagano conversations after Hooker was picked.  Pagano's was cringe worthy and Irsay's was classy.
    • I'm wondering if this maybe signals that we plan on completely redshirting Dayo this season. Ballard mentioned regretting bringing Turay back too soon and him not being 100% to where he needed a 2nd surgery. He may want to play it safe with Dayo to make sure he starts his career at 100%. Who really knows at this point though.
