    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    First go with the 7th rounder added:

    30. DE Kwity Paye, Mich. - A process guy who has ascended. He's got the kind of traits McDermott covets.
    61. G Wyatt Davis, OSU - Not sure why he has fallen to late 2nd round. He's a mover and hits targets at the second level.
    93. CB Keith Taylor Jr, Wash. - Tall, solid tackler, smart processor in zone and can press.
    161. WR Dazz Newsome, NC - Youth at the slot with special teams value.
    174. S Darrick Forrest, Cinci - Smart, sound and a tough tackler perfect for the Bills' scheme.
    213. LB Garrett Wallow, TCU - Back up for Milano with cover abilities coupled with a willingness to get down hill.
    236. DT Lorenzo Neal Jr., Purdue - Tons of ability and flashes of high level play but needs to work on his body. High ceiling project.

    Nice job!
    BUFFALO was also active signing veteran free agents from other teams: quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (Bears), wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (Saints) and Brandon Powell (Falcons), tight end Jake Hollister (Seahawks), running back Matt Breida (Dolphins), offensive tackles Bobby Hart (Bengals) and Jamil Douglas (Titans), guard Forrest Lamp (Chargers), defensive end Efe Obada (Panthers), linebackers Tyrell Adams (Texans) and Marquel Lee (Raiders) and punter Matt Haack (Dolphins).

    The Billsí current roster consists of four quarterbacks, five tight ends, six running backs, 10 wide receivers, 12 offensive linemen, four safeties, six defensive tackles (including Star Lotulelei, who opted out of last season due to Covid concerns), six cornerbacks, seven defensive ends, eight linebackers and three specialists.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    It is that time of year, isn't it? I didn't get to watch too much college football last year, and haven't followed the pre draft reports very much..but here goes.

    30. Caleb Farley
    CB, Virginia Tech

    For the first time...probably ever, I'm picking a DB with the first pick, for several reasons. they are picking at 30 this year, not in the top 10. And they aren't looking for a QB for the first time in forever.

    Farley is a complete CB whose negatives can be addressed through coaching. McD emphasized that that more speed was needed and Farley reportedly runs a sub 4.3 40. Over 6 feet and over 200 lbs who can cover bigger receivers and the speedsters.

    The back surgery is concerning so if I were McBeane, medical opinions would be paramount. But the surgery he had was not a full discectomy, it was more of a microsurgery, where they only cut out the herniated portion of the disc. If it holds up...you can now have 2 lockdown corners.


    61 Carlos Basham
    Edge Wake Forest


    The guy with the cool name makes it to the bottom of the second. Can't ask for a better name for pass rusher than Basham.

    Great production at Wake Forest, a good Senior Bowl week where they were playing him inside and outside. 23 games in a row with a TFL and 15 sacks in his past 19 games.

    One criticism I've seen is his closing speed. I haven't seen that, I've seen just the opposite, especially for a guy that weighs 280. My criticism is that he comes out of his stance straight up too many times. It is correctable, but some never correct it. He's worth the risk at the bottom of the second.

    93 Hunter Long
    TE Boston College

    One of the most productive TE's in college last year. More polished than Knox, but not the athlete Knox is. His Pro Day numbers weren't great but they weren't horrible. They are a bit comparable with Jason Kelce's combine numbers. I'll take the production he's had and hope he carries it to the next level.


    161 Josh Imatorbhebhe
    WR Illinois

    Another cool name but wtf were his parents thinking...with a last name like Imatorbhebhe, they gave him the bland first name like "Josh".

    The guy is a project, but what a piece of marble to work with. 220lbs who had a 46 inch vertical at his PD and a broad jump over 11 feet... while running a sub 4.5 40. This is the type of guy you take at 161.

    174 Elerson Smith
    Edge Northern Iowa

    Ok, Im making up for the bland first name in my previous pick with Elerson Smith. If I'm his coach, I take his first name and give it to Imatorbhebhe. So I now have one guy named Elerson Imatorbhebhe and another named Josh Smith. I've done 2 things...I've 1) created a very, very cool name and 2) put an enormous chip on Smith's shoulder. He'll hate me, but it will work.

    As a player, here is what you get: You get a 6'7", 270 lb guy that lit it up at Northern Iowa. He gained 50lbs in his college career. He looks like a string bean on tape..but he's gained weight since then (he didn't play in 2020.).

    No 270 lb man should be able to jump 41 inches or broad jump nearly 10 and a half feet, but he does. Despite an arm length of over 33 inches and still looking like a string bean, he put up 26 bench reps.

    In his last college season, 2019, he had over 20 tfls, 14 sacks and 5 FF's in 15 games. I'll make him the next Ted Hendricks.



    213 Damar Hamlin
    S Pitt

    A McD pick. Not the greatest athlete, but a team leader, the leading tackler on Pitt's D last year and someone who plays smart. He's a solid late round pick.

    236 Cole Van Lanen
    OT Wisconsin

    a run game bruiser. He won't be starting at either tackle position, but could be good depth on the inside, especially in the run game.

    Re: Draft Network Simulator. Fun!

    I am all over the place this year. Just did four versions, from four different sites.

    Fanspeak..........PFF..........Draft Network..........NFL Mock

    1---CB Kevin Joseph, Ky...CB Asanti Samuel, JR, Fla St...CB Caleb Farley, Virg Tech....RB Travis Etienne, Clemson
    As much as I think LBer and Edge are the first round priority, it's looking more like CB could be the pick considering what is happening in free agency. I don't think they are going to go for a bigger, longer guy that seems to be the rage (like Farley), but think Joseph or Samuel JR could be the pick. I really don't think Etienne or Harris are going to be around close enough to move up to get but if one of them falls I used the NFL mock to snag the RB from Clemson as kind of a shocker pick (to me anyway)...gives McD and Daboll their 'triplets'.

    2--LB Nick Bolton...S Elijah Molden...Edge Carlos Basham...Edge Joe Tryon
    This is all about who falls and we get to say "Holy ****! Can't believe he fell to us!" There has to be and edge guy or LBer Beane just can't pass up in the second. Right?

    3--C Jimmy Morrissey, Pitt...C Jimmy Morrissey, Pitt...S Divine Deablo, Virg Tech...CB Kary Vincent JR, LSU
    Morrissey is the one guy that I've really zeroed in on this season...I really like him, a lot. He's a process guy, a technician more than a mauler, and he worked for everything he's achieved. I really think think this guy has 'starting anchor' written all over him, eventually. Every mock has him available in Round 5 or later, but he just feels like if we want him and don't jump on him early he'll be long gone before our next pick.

    5a--CB DJ Daniel, Georgia...TE Tre' McKitty, Georgia...C Jimmy Morrissey, Pitt...C Jimmy Morrissey, Pitt
    I really believe this is a 2 cornerback draft, it's just a matter of where the value fits the board the best on Day 3. After signing Hollister and rumors of JJames being on the radar I'm not sure they will even get a tight end in this draft unless it's somebody they simply can't pass up but McKitty is my #2 guy I keep getting on Day 3. Not very productive, but he has a very good all-around skill set with room to grow. Maybe that guy that can catch and block? If we don't get a TE by now, the pick is probably a corner like Daniel or safety.

    5b--S Shawn Davis, Florida...LB Isaiah McDuffie, BC...CB DJ Daniel, Georgia...S James Wiggins, Cincinnati
    6--Edge Patrick Johnson, Tulane...DB Deommodore Lenoir, Oregon...LB Ernest Jones, SCarolina...WR Marvin Williams, UCF
    7--WR Michael Strachan, Charleston...RB Javian Hawkins, Louisville...WR Michael Strachan, Charleston...LB Isaiah McDuffie, BC
    All about value, special teams, development potential and depth at this point and beyond. They need more numbers at safety, this could be where their second corner is grabbed, a LBer finally, etc etc. I do think if they don't get a RB high and it's defense heavy up to this point the last couple of picks could be token skill players for the offense, but I'm sticking with defense.

    I like this draft a lot, except I'm not sure about Basham. McDermott even made Epenesa loose weight at 10lbs lighter than Basham.

    I also don't understand how Van Lanen fell all the way from a potential 2nd round grade to late day 3. I pick him almost every time I do one of the simulators.
