    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    After a trade down or two:

    27. Peter Skoronski -OT Northwestern Don't know how he fell this low, but I won't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    59 John Michael Schmitz - C Minnesota. Some call him the best center in the draft. When I was watching some of the Senior Bowl practices last night, he was holding up really well. Not the biggest, but he wasn't getting pushed around and knows how to use leverage.

    91 Will McDonald IV - Edge, Iowa St. Outside of Von Miller, the Dline has a shortage of speed in the pass rushing dept. We need someone that can make OT's chase them on occasion and take them off their game. McDonald might change that. How fast? idk, but faster than Epenesa and Basham. Set the Big12 career sack record, impressive since he didn't start playing football until he was like a junior in high school. He can bend and has a great spin move that will get better with experience.

    139. Andrei Iosivas - WR Princeton. Quickly becoming a darling of the Senior Bowl, as he is becoming a nightmare for DB's there. 6'3" 200 lbs and reportedly runs a 40 in the 4.2's. Not sure about tha tbut he's been getting open against some of the best dbs in college football this week.

    151 Jammie Robinson S Fl. St. hits, covers, tackles, makes plays, rinse and repeat.

    164 Karl Brooks DT/DE Bowling Green. In the past 2 years, he's produced 96 QB pressures, 68 QB hurries and 20 sacks. Those numbers are astounding. Watching him a bit at the Senior Bowl, its understandable how he did it. His first step is outstanding and he's blown by OL from bigger schools with a decent amount of regularity. IDK how he does against the run, I don't really care. He's drafted as a pass rusher. But I will say I didn't see him getting pancaked. 6'4" and a little over 300 lbs.

    https://www.49erswebzone.com/forum/n...bowling-green/


    171 Isaiah Davis RB -South Dakota St. People wanted a bigger back in the stable and he might be it. Nearly 1500 yards for SDST last year and 15 TDs. Arm tackling or a bump won't do it to bring him down. A modern day John Riggins.

    259 McClendon Curtis - OG Tenn Chattanooga More depth for the Oline. A big man at 6'6" and 335, and 35 inch arms. He's been more than holding his own this week.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    27: R1 P27 QB Tim DeMorat - Fordham - Allen is toast, time to move on. I declined trades and went right after my guy.
    91: R3 P28 K Andre Szmyt - Syracuse - Tyler Bass brings no fire to the locker room, I've had enough of him.
    99: R3 P36 K Noah Ruggles - Ohio State - Not real sure about Szmyt, a good GM covers his doubts.
    101: R3 P38 P Lou Hedley - Miami - We need a guy named "Lou" out there, Martin is too expensive.
    113: R4 P11 FB Hunter Luepke - North Dakota State - Look at that name and tell me this man is not an upgrade.
    130: R4 P28 QB Tyson Bagent - Shepherd - Barkley & Keenum are gone. If a guy is good at Shepherd, oh he's good.
    139: R5 P3 LB Abraham Beauplan - Marshall - Time to replace Edmunds.
    157: R5 P21 LB Bumper Pool - Arkansas - Time to replace Beauplan with a guy who has a great name.
    163: R5 P27 C Cam Reddy - Liberty - You're out of here, Morse.
    164: R5 P28 C Juice Scruggs - Penn State - A backup center named Juice ? Damn straight.
    166: R5 P30 G Sidy Sow - Eastern Michigan - We need a guard, to develop. Will take a long time to develop this one. Perfect.
    170: R5 P34 OT B.J. Wilson - Quincy - This is a man that will play some football. Might not be good, but he will.
    190: R6 P13 S BJ Foster - Sam Houston State - So far under the radar, I never heard of him. Obvious sleeper. Poyer gone.
    231: R7 P12 WR Nikko Remigio - Fresno State - Frosting on DeMorat's cake, he'll light the league up.

    Predraft, as the GM, I re signed Saffold to a hefty contract, because he's Saffold.

    I let everyone else walk because they're bums and I can find cheap bums anywhere on the release wire. I traded down everywhere I could so I could get those six 5th rounders to shore up my core, and get some kickers with 3rds.

    I sense a degree of scorn after I traded all those picks for 5th rounders where I could really work. The man played at Liberty, he's got character if limited athletic skills.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    On a serious note, a lot of problems with this draft class, imho. The best prospects where we need them don't match our junk schemes. They're great prospects, you can tell we won't draft because they wouldn't fit. I keep running the simulators, finding players we won't adapt to using successfully.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    Best I can do atm. Bills use FA to set up their draft though. Not enough picks to cover everything. Hope the coaches step up and adjust.

    27: R1 P27 G O'Cyrus Torrence - Florida - Right guard. Bates back to left. He's not mobile enough for what they want.
    59: R2 P28 C John Michael Schmitz - Minnesota - Best center, sure. Not mobile enough for what they want.
    91: R3 P28 G Steve Avila - TCU - Can play all line positions, not a hardbody, doesn't fit what they want.
    130: R4 P28 S Jammie Robinson - Florida State - Best prospect there, what they want, sure. All around game if he's there.
    139: R5 P3 LB Owen Pappoe - Auburn - Great in coverage, Edmunds when tangled up. Mlb without enough size. Good team will use him dynamically.
    164: R5 P28 OT Ryan Hayes - Michigan - Best developmental tackle prospect left, imho.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    27. Antonio Johnson S Texas A&M - Almost went with Gibbs here, but I think Johnson gives them an heir apparent to Hyde and some insurance in case the Benford switch doesn't happen. He can also play in the slot as the Nickel CB and has the size at DB that Beane covets.

    59. Jaelyn Duncan OT Maryland - Big athletic tackle that should push to start at RT against Brown.

    91. Ricky Stromberg OC Arkansas - I see him as more of a guard in the offense which I went OC in back to back picks.

    130. Alex Forsyth OC Oregon - Veteran and cerebral center who should be able to replace Morse in terms of controlling the OL and making calls. Questions about his ability to anchor against bigger IDL though are a concern.

    139. Zacch Pickens DT South Carolina - All potential pick here, Pickens was supposed to be dominant at South Carolina and mostly just flashed in games. He's a bigger body who could add more weight but still has a good first-step.

    205. Puka Nacua WR BYU - Big play WR who could eventually replace Davis if he doesn't fix his drop issue.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    I love this trade down thing with The Draft Network. Was able to get essentially what I wanted and turned 6 picks into 10.

    40. John Michael Schmitz C Minnesota. Day 1 starter. Solid in all areas. He was there at 40. I would have considered Hiatt from Tenn. before the trade down, but he was already gone. I would have probably considered an OT first, but there were going to be a few available in the 2nd (see below).

    59. Darnell Wright OT- Tennessee Didn't give up a sack in 2022. All SEC. Senior Bowl practice player of the week among OL. Handled Will Anderson against Bama. At the Senior Bowl, had 2 or 3 bad reps against Will McDonald, but other than that was very good.

    78. Jayden Reed WR- Michigan St. Another Senior Bowl standout. got open underneath, got open deep. caught everything. Limited in 2022 due to injuries but he looks healed.

    98 Daiyan Henley- LB Washington St. He can run, he can tackle, he can cover. Yet another Senor Bowl standout. Voted top LB in Senior Bowl practices. Reads, reacts, attacks.

    126. Chase Brown - RB Illinois. 215 lbs, fast strong, productive and can catch. 2600 yards in the past 2 years on the ground, nearly 400 yards in receptions. He takes over for Motor.

    130 Jammie Robinson - S Florida St. He's always there for me at this tie in the draft. Its fate.

    146 Atonio Mafi - G UCLA. idk about him, but he puts people on the ground when blocking.

    Now time to go John Butler

    190.Andrei Iosivas WR Princeton. Rumored to run a 4.2 40, but I doubt it. Still, he's fast and has good body control Had over 900 yards last year and good hands. 6'2" 200 lbs and a college track star in the heptathlon. The tools are there to work with.

    205. Karl Brooks. DT Bowling Green See earlier mock. He won't be at 205, not after the Senior Bowl week he had.

    218 Caleb Murphy Edge Ferris St. First ever DII player to win the Hendricks Award as the best DE in college football. set the NCAA record for sacks in a season with 25.5. 39 TFLS. Nearly half of his tackles last year were TFLs. 2 time DII national champion. 6'3" 250llbs. Great closing speed, is relentless, and knows his way into the backfield.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    I'm starting to buy into the first round WR mindset even though I'd go elsewhere with the pick.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    I made my trades for Oliver, McKenzie, Epenesa and brought in Muma from my post in the other thread...

    Got a classic slot receiver in the first, maybe the best in this year's draft.
    A center in the second and fourth, one or both also play guard until taking over for Morris.
    A box safety in Brown, a deep safety with Dean.
    A replacement for Oliver's spot in the rotation and an outside WR to develop/depth.

    27. WR Josh Downs, North Carolina
    59. C Luke Wypler, Ohio State
    73. S Sidney Brown, Illinois (pick from Houston for Ed Oliver)
    130. C Olusegun Oluwatimi, Michigan
    132. DL Karl Brooks, Bowling Green (pick from Carolina for Epenesa)
    205. WR Jake Bobo, UCLA
    242. S Trey Dean III, Florida (pick from NY Giants for McKenzie)

    #91 (3rd) and #139 (5th) to Jacksonville for MLB Chad Muma.
