The funny thing is that I didn't use PFF at all. Did they really like Westerman and Billings?

I have McCray on my roster, I'll trade him for the 5th pick. I will reject both of the Chiefs trade-downs. I will then make the following trade UP:

Sending my 28th pick (valued at 660) to Pittsburgh for their 25th pick (valued at 828 after 15% penalty) I owe 168 points to Pittsburgh after swapping these two picks.
Sending my 59th pick (valued at 201 after 35% penalty) to Pittsburgh for the 123rd pick (valued at 49 points) I still owe the Pittsburgh 16 points
Sending my 162nd pick (valued at 17 after 35% penalty) to Pittsburgh

1-25 (25th pick) QB Paxton Lynch (Broncos)

I was just sick to see the Broncos get this guy right in front of us. I can't let it go, and in this forum I don't have to. I strongly considered making the safer move and following the Chiefs here since it was going to cost me so much to move up. But ultimately I did what I always do.

4-25 (123rd pick) RB Kenneth Dixon (Ravens)

I somehow missed out on the West/Ware train, so I shopped for a potential successor to Jamaal Charles in the later rounds of the draft. This guy sounded like he had the most potential to blow up.

6-28 (203rd pick) WR Mike Thomas (Rams)

I considered going with Dadi Stephens here, but again, I want the guy to be successful.

7-28 (249th pick) CB Kalan Reed (Titans)

Heard a lot of buzz about this year's Mr. Irrelevant, so taking a flyer.


Nothing personal, but I hope this ends up being a disaster draft for you.

To start out with, I'm going to accept both of the Chiefs trades.

I'm then going to initiate a trade up with Cleveland to move from 105 to 99 and involves the following picks:

Chiefs Receive
4-1 (99th pick) = 104
4-31 (129th pick) = 43
7-29 (250th pick) = 2
Total = 149

Browns Receive
4-7 (105th pick) = 84*85% = 71.4
4-8 (106th pick) = 82*85% = 69.7
6-28 (203rd pick) = 10.2*85% = 8.7
Total = 149.8


Draft
2-6 (37th pick) - Tyler Boyd, WR, Pittsburgh (Bengals, 55)
I felt like the Chiefs needed a guy that could come in and be a #2 receiver right away rather than taking a 4th defensive lineman. Boyd also has return ability.
3-11 (74th pick) - KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame (Chiefs, 74)
I love the Chiefs' original pick here, Russell could come in and start right away either outside or in the slot.
4-1 (99th pick) - Joshua Perry, ILB, Ohio State (Chargers, 102)
I think Perry was damn underrated in the draft and was infuriated when KC didn't move up to snag him. This guy can do everything at a starter's level.
4-28 (126th pick) - Connor McGovern, OG, Missouri (Broncos, 144)
Another guy that slid too far in the real draft, he's got potential to be stud. KC needs competition for a starting guard spot this year and McGovern has the strength to do it.
4-31 (129th pick) - Matt Judon, DE/OLB, Grand Valley State (Ravens, 146)
I'm not sure if Dee Ford is actually going to make it yet or not and the Chiefs also have Justin Houston set to miss significant time. The backups don't inspire confidence. I considered Spence for a while at 37. Judon has Houston-like measurables and great production at his level.
5-25 (162nd pick) - Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State (Browns, 172)
Higgins is the most underrated receiver in the draft and has starter potential. I double-down on potential at receiver.
5-28 (165th pick) - Fahn Cooper, OT/OG, Ole Miss (49ers, 174)
I felt like KC should have double-dipped on the O-line. They need guys to push for starting guard spots and a backup swing tackle. Cooper fits the bill.
6-3 (178th pick) - D.J. White, CB, Georgia Tech (Chiefs, 178)
Another pick of KC's that I loved is White. Physical for his size, sticky in man, and decent ball skills.
7-29 (250th pick) - Kalan Reed, CB, Southern Miss (Titans, 253)
Can't believe Reed dropped to the end of the draft. I had Reed pegged as a 2nd to 3rd round talent. I'll take him here and, like the Chiefs, go for the hat trick on DBs.

I'll be interested in seeing how Judon and Higgins turn out. They were both high on my radar.

Me too.

I have pretty high hopes for both. Really liked them in this draft.

Wondering how much of an impact not taking a D-lineman will make though.

I am fairly confident Boyd starts out of the gate for Cincy.

Not that I remember. Big on the guys I chose, though. Honestly, I started this game in the spirit that a very passive amateur who barely pays attention to prospects or college ball could do better than the Chiefs. For the first few years I felt I was doing better than Pioli. Dorsey seems to be doing better than me. This is alright by me.

I've noticed the same pattern. I was beating down Pioli hard, but my 2015 team was probably less strong than the real Chiefs.

Seems as though you should probably re-visit your draft selections.

Playing without a left tackle seems antithetical to success.

Rain Man 05-10-2016 04:20 PM

Left tackles are hard to get. I keep drafting tackles and they keep ending up on the right side. At some point I'll have to invest a first-round pick, I guess.

That's going to be pretty unpopular with your active message board fans.

After drafting Russell Wilson, I've fortunately got a lot of goodwill in the bank. I hope they're more ticked off at Cyrus Kouandjio than at me.

You could have drafted Jason Spriggs at 37 instead of letting GB get the steal of the draft at 48. :D

I was actually very interested in Spriggs, based solely on one film clip of him doing agility drills. Wow. But I've got enough tackles that I can stopgap that position for now and I had other major holes to fill.

chiefscafan 05-15-2016 08:42 AM

Hmm I guess I'll revisit it
