Maybe next time.
It's cool man.....I only brought this up is because there were a few players recently taken that some members thought that were taken but weren't.
This way.....with the separate players taken thread......players won't slip through the cracks like that because they'll have a better understanding of players that were taken and those that weren't
No, totally, I feel you, it's just more than I care to do at this point basically. It's a great idea and Im down to do it from the start next time, but hundreds of players in, Im not going to go back and organize them all.
Not a problem.....:icon_cool:
I wasn't asking you to do it......I wouldn't have a problem doing it myself actually.
I like that idea as well and understand that would be easier, a lot of updating for one person...but the list is there and it's not that difficult to read. Having said that, I'm sure I'll be the next one to duplicate a pick...lol.
Agreed. (Not saying you are, but..) Definitely can't complain about the way this is being run. I'm shocked we've made it almost 6 rounds. Last year I think we made it 9 picks or something. Great job by everybody who's been keeping it moving.
I'd be willing to take a position or two and go through them if we want to start a thread like that. It may not be worth it with only a round and a half to go. There are some players/positions who would make it difficult too (4-3 DE vs 3-4 OLB, SS vs. FS, OG/OT etc.)
I just open the first page in another tab and hit Ctrl-F and type the name, it takes seconds.
same. puts a highlight right over the name if it's there.
Denver continues the overhaul of their DL. They should be pretty happy with Matthews and Parker after not picking since Round 3.
You bastards just took the top 2 players off my Bears baord back to back.
Byron Stingily to Chicago would have been perfect because of this...Byron Stingily is a Chicago house music legend.

Plus they could use another tackle prospect.
Went with Yates for the Ravens as a long term backup to Flacco, Bulger is a free agent and could find a starting job elsewhere. Besides Bulger we just have Hunter Cantwell on the roster, Im sure if Bulger is not back we'd bring in another vet but Yates could be the #3 for a while until he's ready to be the primary backup.
I expected Brown to be gone long before now just because so many people seem to have a hardon for his potential and size, but I'm glad to get him here. Could be Randy Moss, could be Chad Jackson. We'll see, but the Moss potential makes it a worthy pick for a team shallow with aging wideouts.
We're getting close to the end of the round, but I dont have time to put up the 7th right now. I'll be back on this afternoon and try to do it then, so just try and pick slow until then.
I had Brown as a mid-to seventh rounder who may end up as a free agent.
He does offer great size (6-5, 235 pounds) with above average speed. I guess its worth it in the late sixth......but you may have been able to get him later.....depending if anyone else knew about him.
I think Brown ultimately may be a better fit at TE than WR with a little bulk.
I went with Burney for GB, He's 5'9'' and he ran a 4.7 at the combine but he's a good football player. At that size and speed he'll be a nickel guy/st player only but with Charles Woodson heading towards the end of his career and a talent like Shields who could bolt when the time comes for more money Burney is a nice insurance policy in the nickel/dime package.
Havili is the rare fullback prospect that is an effective runner and receiver. He runs great routes and has soft hands. He also has rare athleticism for the position.
He averaged a gaudy 6.3 yards per carry and over 13 yards per catch in his college career. He may not have the classic size for a FB.....but he'll assume the Brandon Jacobs role as the power back in the Giants' backfield with Ahmad Bradshaw and Kendall Hunter.
A player with Havili's versatility and skill set is great value in the late sixth round. He may have injury and maturity issues but he's a risk worth taking late in the draft.
I like that pick...I considered him for the Seahawks, but the maturity and injury issues scared me away. Probably would've been a nice selection for Carroll and Seattle.
In the first three rounds......I take those factors in consideration. But when it gets to the middle rounds.....thats where you comfortably start taking chances on players with potential that have injury or maturity issues.
I didn't plan on taking two backs in this draft but when it got into the sixth round and he was still on the board....I was salivating at the chance on taking him. This pick can allow Jacobs to become expandable and Stanley is a much cheaper option. This could also allow Bear Pascoe to move back as a blocking TE. I could see him end up in Seattle in next weeks draft.
I went with Jarriel King for KC, they only have 3 tackles under contract and King can also play guard. He's a talent guy that at the least can compete for a roster spot.
7th round is mostly up, I have to finish formatting it or whatever but keep rolling on picks.
