Problem I find with those is that they're unrealistic. First-pick trades are very unrealistic, and it makes it really easy to accumulate picks. I also have no idea why first-pick keeps making the Giants take Christian Wilkins when they should be going QB.

 Yea I agree. It is a little too easy to acquire picks.  But maybe it is that easy but teams don’t do it because they don’t want 50 late round picks lol.  I have had some simulations with no offers for our third pick. And a lot with QBs going 1 and 2

We have plenty of fans who play these games.    Constantly.

 

Theyre fun and addictive.

 

But they're not realistic.   The people who run these do NOT know who the top players are beyond the first round, and even there they're not great.    They're not close to accurate until mid-April, a few weeks before the draft.    These are not personnel experts.    

 

Think garbage in, garbage out.

 

Have fun with them, but don't read anything into them.   Don't take them seriously.   They're mostly worthless.  

 

Sorry.

    • Do you think Bill Belichick has cornered the market on ideas?   Do you think he does not make mistakes?   BB made Dont’a Hightower one of the NFL ‘s highest paid players.  So, poof,  there goes your Leonard argument.  When players perform at a premium level you pay them what they’re worth.   Period.   You’re badly over-thinking this.   There is no perfect formula to a championship.   You think Ballard is not aware that when he pays a guard premium money that means he’ll be paying other positions less than premium.   He 100 percent knows that.     It’s always, Always, ALWAYS better to have too much talent than not enough.  Dallas has paid a fortune into its OL for years.   Smith, Martin, used to have Frederick at Center.  Used to have a good guard who left in FA, and then Collins who is now getting paid.   3 of their 5 getting top money and it used to be 4 before Frederick had to retire early.   They had a top 3 OL for years.   They figured out the rest of the roster.     They’re paying big money while a good number of younger players are on their cheaper rookie contracts.   That’s life for GM’s in the NFL.  Too much talent is always a good thing.    You never take a lesser player who plays a premium position over a much better player at a so-called non-premium position.   Never.   Do you think it’s a coincidence that the play of the Colts OL dramatically improved when Nelson joined the team?   Come on....   Sorry, but your logic is twisted beyond all recognition.     
    • Dang, four playoff spots up got grabs between six teams.  
    • Jag fans would riot..  
    • Colts wearing their color rush 
    • Maybe Nelson plays LT this week and balls out, then the problem is resolved, LOL.    IDK, depends on how the draft goes towards filling the pricey players at LT, DE, WR, and QB.  We might have to let one of Nelson or Leonard go.  We might get a 3rd round comp pick for Nelson's contract, 4th for Leonard's contract, and we could find a ILB in that round.  Don't have to make that decision for a while, and if Ballard can hit on those pricey position draft picks, we could pay both while the youngsters are playing on their rookie deals.   No, I doubt BB would pay either....and would take the comp picks.  But I don't think he is a great drafter given the number of picks he has had over the years.
