JetNation 2018 Mock Draft DISCUSSION


Recommended Posts

Just now, Lith said:

I don't think they have a decent guard outside of Zack Martin -- took a quick look at their roster and a couple of other sites who have mocked G to Cowboys in this spot.  So we went with the G.

moral of the story: 

Don't let us pick for your team!  Be on time with your picks!

Bis shout out to you guys for running this draft. I know it's a pain in the ass, so props for making it run so smooth. 

@SenorGato you made your opinion known. But you aren't in this mock draft. I don't see your name listed next to a team. So you should just get out of this thread, I just read through the entire discus

Making a draft maneuver so awful that it legitimately drives a person insane is the stuff of Idzik’s and Tannenbaum’s dreams. Well played, @Dcat

Yup.  They are built around the Oline, I don't think it is an unrealistic pick for them.  There were other options, but it does seem like a Cowboy type pick to me.

He was on my short list for DET at the next pick.  I think I would still have gone with the pass rusher, but from a talent perspective, that's a good fit for DAL.  They saw how critical the running game is to their entire offense.

I’ll take Dallas?

Sorry.  Since his pick passed and we had not heard from you, we went ahead and made the pick for Dallas.  Best if you stick with KC at this point. 

We were just trying to give you a chance to get in the game a little sooner.

3 guards/ centers in the 1st round already, holy sh*t. 

And I picked two of them for guys who missed their picks.  Don't miss a pick or you are getting a guard.

Although I do think they both made sense for the teams I gave them to.

The Dallas pick was really good actually. 

I also thought the G made sense for Seattle.  Their starting guards are Joeckel who is bad and Fluker who is worse.  Wynn upgrades their worst position.

The Bills guards are INCOGNITO and DUCASSE. Incognito is old as **** and Ducasse ******* sucks. In a run first offense that’s awful so I understand.

So far today, we have had to make two picks after the clock expired and we have had several other picks over the last two days that have run over 2 hours.  The pace has been brutal -- 24 picks as we approach the end of day 2.  We should be finishing up the the first round tonight.  If you signed up for the draft, please try to check in frequently -- we get that stuff comes up between work, family, etc, which is why we have a 3 hour window, but it does not mean that every pick has to run the full 3 hours.   And if you are going to be away for a while and your pick is coming up, send us a list in order of who you want to take.  We don't like having to make picks for people (there are only so many guards to go around).  A better pace makes the draft more fun for everyone.

Lets try to get things moving please.

No trades and it would definitely move along faster.

This draft feels like when you’re  standing in a long line and every person in front of you waits until they get to the front to ask what’s on the menu. 

I’m not bragging but from when I was on the clock to when I made my selection: 12 minutes

Made. From my phone. At a park. While walking my dog. Why so fast?

CAUSE I KNEW WHO I WANTED BEFORE IT WAS MY TURN, AND WHEN GUY #1 and #2 WERE TAKEN, I MADE MY PICK

 

 

(it would’ve been faster but the two picks ahead of me happened appropriately fast)

It would be faster, but the trades make it more interesting.  In the past we have done it with trades, and it normally takes about two days for each round.  If we were hitting that pace, I would not be trying to push it along.  I think it is the two missed picks that slowed us down more than the trades.

I completely agree. When the clock is upon you should already know who you're picking. You have plenty of time to plan/make a list of people you want to pick.

It's not that hard.

Hell. Sorry I missed that. I left work thinking it would take a bit and then some stuff happened unexpectedly with the baby. Everything is fine. Thanks for taking Wynn that’s who I would have chosen at 24. Although it looks like I missed out on trade possibilities. My fault.

We used to try and get 16 trust worthy dudes and get two teams too. That helped but none the less it's never gonna be perfect. 

The two mods have been great

The guys are doing great running it. It’s the dipsh*t posters that post while they’re on the clock and don’t pick for three hours.

Yo, I think Ridley is being massively underrated and is going to be an automatic stud in the NFL. Maybe not a true #1, elite all pro diva top 5 type, but rock solid on a winning team and a couple pro bowls type. Love that pic to titans.

No problem.  Was not necessarily directed at you -- you just happened to be the last guy to miss a pick when I posted that.  You have always been engaged in these things when we have done them in the past.  Like I said, we know stuff comes up -- especially with family.  Glad everything is ok.

why. both starting guards are returning. they're both fine as far as i know. quinton spain & josh kline

They both suck and need to be upgraded. Your pick was good. Ridley is a great fit. It’s ironic because Lith has handed out OGs left and right.

He had such weirdly awful Combine numbers.

and the passion for trades fades as we get past rounds 3 & 4.  Very few at the back end.
