I really think we had one of the best drafts in the league.We may not have walked away with a couple studs but we got incredible value. I could see 4-5 of these guys making an impact pretty quickly and we got them at such a low cost considering we traded our 2nd rounder away. One thing to note is we traded our 6th and 7th rounders to Philly for their 5th rounder. Using that, we got a 5th and a 6th from the Raiders(Lol suckers) We were presented with a couple chances to trade but none of them were in our best interests. Miami's GM was very stingy and didn't want to give up a lot for BA. The feeling I got from around the league was that they felt that they could each find someone else to play LT whether it was in the draft or someone already on their team. At one point, we were also offered a very unrealistic trade from New England who received BPA because they were late with their pick. They ended up getting Dee Milliner and they offered to trade Dee Milliner for Markus Wheaton, our 4th, 5th, and 6th which equated to rougly a free 1st round pick on the value chart. We were very tempted to take it but it just wouldn't make sense given the money we put into CB this offseason.
Overall I think we filled needs very efficiently and I have a feeling that some of these players will shine. I doubt we will have this successful of a draft come draft day, but I'm hoping for the best!
I want to thank ChiefMojo and nmchiefs for helping me out during this awesome experience. I wouldn't have been able to do it without them and their extensive knowledge. This whole thing was a lot of fun and I really look forward to it next year, and hopefully we'll get some more bodies in the war rooms!
Below is a poll just to see what you guys think of the draft, let me know what you would have done differently.
