Welcome to the 2010 version of the Build a Team of Prospects game. This will be the 3rd straight year I've organized one of these, and it will be the 4th one I've done after doing two of them last year. You can view the last two here:

http://www.draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32497
http://www.draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27927

Basically, what you are going to do is create a team of 22 players (11 starters on offense and defense) using prospects from the 2010 NFL Draft and one player who is still in college. (I've decided to eliminate choosing a kicker and a punter this time around.)

Also, since it has been an issue in the past, your team will be judged based on how it would work as a pro style team. (As opposed to a college style team.)

There are, however, some limitations to the players that you can use. You only get to use the following amounts of players:

1 top 5 pick
1 top 10 pick (not in the top 5)
4 1st rounders
6 2nd/3rd rounders
5 Mid-rounders
4 Late rounders/UDFAs
1 2011 Draft Prospect

We will be using Scott’s most recent mock as a guide for who represents the top 5, top 10, and first round players. For example, Suh, McCoy, Berry, Clausen and Okung represent the top 5 players for you to choose from. Bradford, Haden, Davis, Baluga and Bryant are the top 10 players for you to choose from. The guys he has for picks 11-32 represent your first round choices.

Since he hasn't done any rounds beyond that, there will be a little bit of guesswork going on. Just use your best judgment for who will be 2nd/3rd rounders, mid-rounders and so on. I will not be overly strict on this as long as you keep your choices within reason. For example, calling Colt McCoy a late rounder is not going to fly...but I'll be lenient for things within reason.

Also for this game, you may choose any one player still in college football, who will be eligible for the 2011 draft to add to your team as well. It does not have to be someone who is a senior next year, it can be a junior or redshirt sophomore…as long as it is someone eligible for the 2011 draft.

So there you have it. You have until 11:59pm Eastern Time on Friday, January 29 to post your team in this thread. At that point, I (and maybe some other well respected posters who’s opinions I seek) will sift through the teams and pick out the top 4-6 as finalists. After that, I will post a poll for everyone to vote on their favorite finalist team. The poll will be open until 11:59pm Eastern Time on Friday, February 5th. Whoever has the most votes at that time wins. For a reward, I’ll plus rep them and they get to gloat and feel good about themselves.

Here is a team I threw together quickly as an example. It will not be included in the judging. Please stick to this format to make it easier on me to grade and rank the teams. It is very helpful if they are all uniform.

Offense: Pro-style, balanced
Defeinse: 4-3, aggressive

QB: Tony Pike, Cincinnati - 2nd/3rd
RB: Toby Gerhart, Stanford - Mid
FB: Manase Tonga, BYU - Late
WR: Brandon Lafell, LSU - 2nd/3rd
WR: Mardy Gilyard, Cincinnati - 2nd/3rd
TE: Dennis Pitta, BYU - Mid
LT: Anthony Davis, Rutgers - Top 10
LG: Mike Iupati, Idaho - 1st
C: Chris Hall, Texas - Late
RG: John Jerry, Ole Miss - Mid
RT: Sam Young, Notre Dame - Late

DE: Derrick Morgan, GT - 1st
UT: Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska - Top 5
NT: Terrence Cody, Alabama - 2nd/3rd
DE: Ricky Sapp, Clemson - 1st
OLB: Daryl Sharpton, Miami - Mid
MLB: Daryl Washington, TCU - 2nd/3rd
OLB: Boris Lee, Troy - Late
CB: Patrick Peterson, LSU - 2011
CB: Kyle Wilson, Boise State - 2nd/3rd
FS: Earl Thomas, Texas - 1st
SS: Kam Chancellor, VT - Mid

Top 5: Suh
Top 10: Davis
1st: Iupati, Morgan, Sapp, Thomas
2nd/3rd: Pike, Lafell, Gilyard, Cody, Washington, Wilson
Mid: Gerhart, Pitta, Jerry, Sharpton, Chancellor
Late: Tonga, Hall, Young, Lee
2011: Peterson

You can play around with the positions a bit as well. Don’t want a TE but a 3rd WR? Fine. No FB, extra TE? Fine. 3-4 defense instead of 4-3? Also just fine. Just make sure you end up with 11 players on offense and defense.

Also, if you think it will help you out, explain a little bit about your game plan for each side of the ball as well.

There we have it…I hope lots of people opt to participate! Good luck.

Just a suggestion, but instead of the "guess work", you should just use Scotts top 100 rankings. For example, you get 1 top 5 ranked player, 2 top 10 ranked players, 5 top 50 ranked players etc etc.

This sounds like a fun game, and definitely one that i am board enough to do. And by the way, i wouldn't consider Davis a top 10 pick, but whatever.

So here it goes.

Offense: Pro Style, Power

QB: Jake Locker, Washington (2011)
RB: LeGarrette Blount, Oregon (late)
FB: Rashawn Jackson, Virginia (late)
WR: Demarius Thomas, Ga Tech (Mid)
WR: Damian Williams, USC (2nd/3rd)
TE: Jimmy Graham (mid)
LT: Bruce Campbell, Maryland (1st)
LG: Mike Iupati, Idaho (1st)
C: Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (mid)
RG: Sergio Render, Va Tech (late)
RT: Vladimir Ducasse, Umass (2nd/3rd)

Strategy: Run the ball and wear down D's which will open up lanes for the passing game. Let the big boys up front dominate with one of the better OL's and make teams commit to the run, and let a guy who is a great rout runner with good speed in Williams hit them with a short gain and burn them after the catch, or let Thomas and Graham use their big bodies to shield off defenders and make big catches. Also use some routs with the RB and FB out of the backfield. Basic Strategy, pound the ball.

Defense: 3-4, Run Stopping

OLB: Jerry Hughes, TCU (2nd/3rd)
DE: Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska (top 5)
NT: Terrance Cody, Bama (2nd/3rd)
DE: Linval Joseph, ECU (late)
OLB: Thaddeus Gibson, Ohio State (mid)
ILB: Rolando McClain, Bama (1st)
ILB: Brandon Spikes, Florida (2nd/3rd)
CB: Joe Haden, Florida (Top 10)
FS: Earl Thomas, Texas (1st)
SS: Chad Jones, LSU (mid)
CB: Donovan Warren, Michigan (2nd/3rd)

Strategy: Allow my DL and ILBg to play run first, so that i can use my CB's, and S's to focus on the pass and my OLB's to just do what they do best and rush the passer. I got very instinctual leaders at ILB so that they will make reeds quickly and be able to break on the ball in their zone coverages and in the run game. I purposely got very good coverage S's and CB's so i could put them in alot of man coverage to counter alot of WR's, but at the same time, i purposly got big and dominate space eater type D linemen to keep my LB's clean and allow them to see what is going on in the backfield and make plays and reeds quickly. Basic strategy, let the playmakers make plays.

Alright so...

Top 5: Suh
Top 10: Haden
1st: McClain, Iupati, Campbell, Thomas (Earl)
2nd/3rd: Spikes, Warren, Ducasse, Hughes, Cody, Williams
Mid: Thomas (Demarius), Graham, Gibson, Jones, Pouncey
Late: Blount, Jackson, Render, Joseph

NOW who likes my beastly team?????

WR: Brandon LaFell
WR: Jordan Shipley
TE: Dennis Pita
LT: Trent Williams
LG: Vladimir Ducasse
C: Maurkice Pouncey
RG: Mike Johnson
RT: Bruce Campbell

Probably the best line of any i've seen so far, which will give Bradford a lot of time to find his solid recievers and help Dwyer a lot. Not that Dwyer needs any help, because he's such a beast. I love my offense, there isn't any holes.

DE: Cameron Heyward

DT: Lamar Houston
DE: Derrick Morgan
OLB: Rico McCoy
MLB: Rolando McClain
OLB: Kam Chancellor
CB: Perrish Cox
CB: Trevard Lindley
FS: Myron Rolle
SS: Chad Jones

The defensive line is quite literally unblockable, with the best DE in this class, the best DE in next years class and a game changing DT ilke Suh. Rolando will lead my defense just like he did at Alabama, Kam would bulk up a bit but I think he would be a much better LB then he would be a safety. Chad Jones and Cox are great guys to have in the secondary, Lindleys stock has fallen a bit but he is a very good physical corner and Rolles stock is low because of the fact that he might not even play. I would get a ton of pressure with my d-line alone and could have my LBs focus more on coverage.

Top 5: Ndamukong Suh
Top 10: Sam Bradford
1st: Derrick Morgan, Trent Williams, Bruce Campbell, Rolando McClain
2nd/3rd: Chad Jones, Brandon LaFell, Perrish Cox, Jonathan Dwyer, Maurkice Pouncey, Vladimir Ducasse

Offense
3 WR 1 TE, Pro-style vertical offense. Jake Locker has 4 receiving weapons who can stretch the field, five linemen within the first 3 rounds who can protect him without the necessity of keeping an extra blocker in and oh yeah, C.J. Spiller. Heavily reliant on the threat of the run setting up play-action, rollouts, bootlegs etc.

QB – Jake Locker (2011)
RB – C.J. Spiller (1st)
WR – Dez Bryant (Top 10)
WR – Mardy Gilyard (2-3)

OT – Russell Okung (Top 5)
OG – Mike Iupati (1st)
C – Maurkice Pouncey (2-3)
OG – Vladimir Ducasse (2-3)
OT – Trent Williams (1st)

Defense
4-3 tampa two in the mode of pre-2009 Colts. Two athletic pure pass-rushers at DE, a penetrating UT and one nose to try to hold the point. Three smaller, quicker LBs who specialize in dropping back in coverage, and a physical secondary. Reliant on the offense putting up points so they can concentrate on the pass.

LDE – Brandon Graham (2-3)
NT – Linvall Joseph (Late)
UT – Tyson Alualu (2-3)
RDE – Everson Griffen (2-3)

Well he is probably the only true elite prospect in the draft outside of Berry, and i would take a DT over a FS every day.

Garrett Graham(Late/UDFA) TE
Bruce Campbell(First round) LT

Defense-43 with fire blitz pressure(ala Philadelhia)


Derrick Morgan(First round) DE
Ndamukong Suh(Top 5) DT
Arthur Jones(2nd-3rd) DT
Jerry Hughes(2nd-3rd) DE
Rico McCoy(Late/UDFA) OLB
Rolando McClain(First rounder) ILB
Navorro Bowman(2nd-3rd) OLB
Donovan Warren(2nd-3rd) CB
Major Wright(Mid) S
Kyle McCarthy(Late/UDFA) S
SydQuan Thompson(Mid) CB

Basically on offense I decided to build a strong offensive line and put the top rated QB from either class behind it. Then I gave him his all round number 1 threat in Bryant, his reliable number 2 option in Williams and Barnes is a playmaker in the slot. Tate is a good downhill runner and behind this offensive line should find success and Graham has been a good receiver in Wisconsin.

On defense, the game is won and lost in the trenches and I built the strongest possible defensive line IMO. Behind that McClain is a great leader at MLB and Bowman has all the talent in the world. At this point I think Warren is underrated as a cover guy but withw the pressure from up front the secondary's issues should be covered.

Offense we're gonna run that BYU spread. Oft have Pitta split out to create mismatches on D. Joe McKnight is an excellent receiver out of the backfield, as well as Manase Tonga. Dez Bryant and Julio Jones both garner double team type attention which is not good for the D when they have Pitta, McKnight and Tonga to cover. Tony Pike can throw.. throw.. and throw. He thrives in the spread. My O-Line are the big nasties. I only wanted huge monsters with a nasty disposition and that's exactly what I got.

QB - Tony Pike (2nd/3rd Rounder)
HB - Joe McKnight (Mid-Rounder)
FB - Manase Tonga (Late Rounder)
WR - Dez Bryant (Top 10)
WR - Julio Jones (2011)
TE - Dennis Pitta (Late-Rounder)
OT - Trent Williams (1st Rounder)
OG - Mike Johnson (Mid Rounder)
C - John Estes (Late/UDFA)
OG - Brandon Carter (Late/UDFA)
OT - Jared Veldheer (Mid Rounder)

Defense is your basic 4-3. Stout DTs up front with menacing pass rushing DEs on the end. My LBs are sideline to sideline beasts. My secondary is second to none.

DE - Jason Pierre Paul (1st Rounder)
DT - Jared Odrick (2nd-3rd)
DT - Terrance Cody (2nd-3rd)
DE - Koa Misi (Mid Rounder)
OLB - Eric Norwood (2nd/3rd)

S: Eric Berry, Tennessee (Top 5)
S: Kyle McCarthy, Notre Dame (Late)

The offense will be built following the model of the New Orleans Saints. It will be a pro-style, pass first/stretch the field offense. Locker is the perfect guy to run the pro style offense who has the arm and leadership to be successful. Spiller provides speed and versatility to be a good runner and also play a part in pass game. Ford and Williams can stretch the field and get behind opposing defenses while Shipley and Peek provide the hands to be successful short to mid range targets. The offensive line has great size but also has the athletic ability (ala Davis, Williams, and Ducasse) to be strong and effective in pass blocking, but to create holes when needed for Spiller.

The defense will be a 3-4 scheme. Jones, Mt. Cody, and Oghobaase are all space eaters that will require multiple blockers and will be stout against the run. Kindle and Misi are both athletic, explosive pass rushers who can get off the edge quickly and are a both a great fit as the 34 OLB’s. McClain and Snyder are both smart and instinctive ILBs that will stabilize the defense. Lindley and Warren are both solid corners, while Berry and McCarthy are playmakers that just make plays when the ball gets near them.

Offense

QB: John Skelton (Late)
RB: LeGarrette Blount (Late)
TE: Colin Peek (mid)
FB: Richard Dickson (Late)
WR: Freddie Barnes (Mid)
WR: Damian Williams (2/3)
RT: Ciron Black (Mid)
RG: Mike Johnson (2/3)
C: Markice Pouncey (2/3)
LG: Mike Iupati (1)
LT: Trent Williams (1)

The offense is built to run the hell out of the ball. Skelton can throw the rock deep to keep teams honest with Williams being a solid receiver with outstanding route running on the outside. Deep outs, posts and digs would be huge in the passing game. Other than that, just a lot of running like the Jets this year.

Defense: 3-4/4-3 hybrid

Strong side DE/weak side DE: Cameron Heyward (2011)
UT/Strong side DE: Vince Oghobasse (Late)
NT: Terrence Cody (2/3)
Weak side DE/OLB: Sergio Kindle (1)
OLB/ILB: Rolando McClain (1)
ILB: Micah Johnson (mid)
OLB(rotate in at strong side end on passing downs): Brandon Graham (2/3)
CB: Joe Haden (Top 10)
CB: Javier Arenas (Mid)
FS: Eric Berry (Top 5)
SS: Chad Jones (2/3)

Cody, Oghobasse, Heyward would always be down lineman with Heyward dropping occassionally in zone blitzes and the other two with less frequency just to create confusion and to keep them guessing. The defense would be predicated on a lot of pre-snap motion to confuse the O-line and help guys get through to create pressure. The looks would rotate and guys would keep putting theyre hand down, getting up and moving around. A lot would be asked of a lot of guys which is why all the front seven needs to be versatile.

Top 5: Berry
Top 10: Haden
1st: Kindle, McClain, Williams, Iupati
2nd/3rd: Cody, Graham, Jones, Williams, Johnson, Pouncey
Mid: Johnson, Arenas, Barnes, Peek, Black
Late: Oghobasse, Skelton, Blount, Dickson
2011: Heyward

Overall the team is built for playoff football in a similar fashion to the Jets.

RT: Vlad Ducasse (2nd/3rd)

Ball control spread offense (Pats, Colts, Saints). Short routes with the ability to go deep at any point in time. Big offensive line should help with the lack of a blocking TE. Went with Konz for a number of reasons: 1. Looks like Fabio, 2. Awesome TE name, 3. Fairly productive considering Kent State's style, 4. Kent State's a quiet talent hub...lots of great talent and coaching has come from this school (historically and recently), and 5. It was either this or Hernandez/Gronkowski with Joe McKnight...I went with Matthews.

Very aggressive 3-4. Bring in someone from either the Steelers or Ravens tree to run the defense. Front 7 is unblockable. Wootton is an underrated player, and Roderick Rollin is my super sleeper for the 2010 draft.

It's always quite difficult....I've already decided that, should I do this again, I'm going to change it around a little more so you have fewer first rounders and 2nd/3rd rounders to work with and have to use more later round guys.....find a perfect fit to your system or suffer with that I feel.

Like I said in the first post, I'm lenient as long as it's not an extreme situation. Mid vs. Late isn't a huge deal as long as it doesn't seem to be abused.

Wow! Thanks for your feedback, about Schofiel i was thinking that he did an awesome job in Shrine Game playing in a position he never played before so i think (if scouts/couches want) he has a HUGE upside playing at LB spot.

But you're righ, physically he is a 3-4 OLB but i liked him so much in Shrine Game (first game really i noticed him).

BTW Any advice for replacing him? :D

i didnt watch the shrine game, i dont have cable in my dorm room. it sucks. but physically i thought he would be a beast of a 3-4 olb. maybe he could play a 4-3 olb too, i think his size and skill sets are more fit for a 3-4 olb. im a gophers fan and he stood out to me when i watched him play this year. i have rico mccoy as an olb for me, but he is more of a late rounder, and schofield was more of a mid rounder guy, but other than that, i dont really know the best olb prospects that should be good value then.

Alright I tried to make mine based off of a couple factors, 1 being taking the best player available (i.e. Suh, Locker) and 2. taking guys that fit the system that also allowed some flexibility.

Offense: Pro Spread (New England Patriots) , Short Passing
Defense: 4-3 Cover 2

QB: Jake Locker, Washington – 2011 Pick is a no Brainer, would have been number 1 overall this year and has every physical tool

RB: Jonathan Dwyer, Ga Tech– 2nd/3rd Averaged, well over 6 yards a carry for his career and is a good one cut power back

WR: Arrelious Benn, Illinois 1st Absolute play maker, He's randy moss in this offense

WR: Jeremy Williams, Tulane – Mid Very under rated

WR: Jordan Shipley, Texas - Mid had to have a slot guy/welker type to make it work, great value pick

TE: Michael Hoomanawanui, Illinois - Mid nice sized blocking TE that can catch the ball

LT: Trent Williams, Oklahoma – 1st the Blind side is very important, and all these Lineman either came from a passing spread or prostyle offense

LG: Brandon Carter, Tex Tech – late Helped Tech reach new levels of success

C: Eric Olsen, Notre Dame - Late

RG: Chris Marinelli, Stanford - Late Tackle turned guard, another guy I think scott has under rated but I don't mind.

RT: Bruce Campbell, Maryland – 2nd/3rd Great size and athletisism. Cant teach that.

RDE: Corey Wootton, Northwestern 2nd/3rd Terrific value, I rate him higher personally but I'll take advantage of the situation

DT: Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska, Top 5 best player in the draft

NT: Terrence Cody, Alabama – 2nd/3rd Guys his size only come around once in a while.

LDE: Austin English, Oklahoma - Late I thought he was gonna be star early in his career, Worth a late round flier

WLB: Eric Norwood, South Carolina – 2nd/3rd This is my Lance Briggs, a bit under sized but is always making plays

MLB: Rolando McClain, Alabama – 1st Best MLB by a long shot

SLB: AJ Edds, Iowa - Mid perfect guy to do the dirty work of a SLB

CB: Joe Haden, Florida – Top 10 has exceptional talent

CB: Kyle Wilson, Boise St. – 2nd/3rd pure play maker that i think will do well in system that allows him to play the quarterback and not the receiver

FS: Taylor Mays, USC- 1st another great talent that will help shut down the run and keep people from going over the middle.

SS: Myron Rolle, Florida State – Mid I think a future leader, college career wasn't as good as expected but neither was FSU during that time

(1) Top 5: Berry
(1) Top 10: Haden
(4) 1st: McClain, Williams, Benn, Mays
(6) 2nd/3rd:Dwyer,Campbell, Wootton, Norwood, Wilson, Cody
(5) Mid: Shipley, Hoomanawanui, Rolle, Williams, Edds
(4) Late: English, Carter, Marinelli, Olsen
(1) 2011: Locker

Offense-
Im turning this aroud and going with WVU offense. OL is run blockers, TE will run block and have one true WR threat.

QB- Jarret Brown- Late-rounder= Who better then to run the WVU then their actual QB?
RB- Joe McKnight- 2nd/3rd= Fast RB to help get to the holes quick.
FB- Toby Gerhart 2nd/3rd= Scotts projections say he is a FB, so I am gonna use this to my advantage.
WR- Julio Jones- 2011 Prospect= My favorite player next year becomes a threat to the offense I need.
WR- David Nelson- UDFA= I know ZERO about this guy, but as my UDFA(again going by Scotts projections) he is HUGE and I hope will help the run block.
TE- Colin Peek- Mid-Rounder= Run blocker who can go out for a pass.
LT- Trent Williams- First rounder
LG- Mike Iupati- First rounder
C- J.D. Walton- 2nd/3rd Rounder
RG- Sergio Render- Mid- Rounder
RT- Sam Young Late-Rounder

Defense-
3-4 With blitzing like crazy.
DE- Lorenzo Washington- Late-Rounder
DT- Terrance Cody- 2nd/3rd Rounder: Only true NT in the whole thing
DE- Brandon Deadrick- Mid-Rounder
OLB- Rico McCoy- Late Rounder= Can he play 3-4 OLB? Idk. Just needed a late rounder and he is 2nd on all-time Tackles at UT.
MLB- Sean Weatherspoon- First Rounder= Moves to ILB and just flat out tackles.
MLB-Rolando McClain- First Rounder= Anchor of the D
OLB- Eric Norwood- 2nd/3rd= Can play anything.
CB- Joe Haden- Top 10= Only need in the 5-10 Range.
FS- Berry- Top 5= Ball hawk safety to compliment the more aggressive.....
SS- Taylor Mays- First Rounder- Plays the run well and Berry and him work together (I know both SS but this is my team remember ;))
CB- Amari Spivey- Mid-Rounder= Eh.... Just Ehh...

Top 5- Berry
Top 10- Haden
1st- Williams, McClain, Mays, Weatherspoon
2nd/3rd- McKnight, Gerhart, Walton, Cody, Norwood
Mid-Rounder-Peek, Render, Deadrick, Spivey
Late-Rounder/UDFA- Brown, Nelson, Washington, McCoy
2011 Prospect- Julio Jones

Offense: Pro, Balanced - I think Mallett will go down as the best QB to come out of the next two drafts and you have to build your offense around the position so I went out of the way to surround him with targets. You have your #1 threat in Dez Bryant with arguably the best pass catching prospects at the RB and TE positions. Barnes is also a ultra productive WR who could make a nice career as a possession WR. I put a massive offensive line in front of my 6'7 QB, that will be running a zone blocking scheme with the idea that defenses will have a hard time finding; much less tackling the shifty Spiller. This is a physical offense that will run the football enough to keep the pass rush honest, use screens when the defense gets too aggressive and take shots down the field with the play action.

QB: Ryan Mallett - 2011
RB: CJ Spiller – 1st
FB: Rashawn Jackson - Late
WR: Dez Bryant –Top 10
WR: Freddie Barnes - Mid
TE: Aaron Hernandez – 2/3rd
LT: Trent Williams – 1st
LG: John Jerry - Mid
C: Eric Olsen - Late
RG: Brandon Carter - Mid
RT: Sam Young - Late

Defense: 4-3 - I made sure the defense was particularly strong up the middle with 1st round talent. It all starts up front with the pass rush. You have at least 3/4 guys on the front 4 that can pressure the QB. Williams will keep blockers off of my fast flowing LB's that should stuff out the run game. I think I have some aggressive CB's that can play some bump and run knowing they have some savy saftey help over the top. Berry allows alot of flexibility as far as coverages and matchups if the defense wants to blitz too.

DE: Greg Hardy – 2/3rd
UT: Arthur Jones – 2/3rd
NT: Dan Williams – 1st
DE: Brandon Graham – 2/3rd
OLB: Pat Angerer - Mid
MLB: Rolando McClain – 1st
OLB: Navorro Bowman – 2/3rd
CB: Kyle Wilson – 2/3rd
CB: Alterraun Verner - Mid
FS: Eric Berry – Top 5
SS: Myron Rolle - Late

Top 5: Eric Berry
Top 10: Dez Bryant
1st: Rolando McClain, CJ Spiller, Trent Williams, Dan Williams
2nd/3rd: Brandon Graham, Greg Hardy, Kyle Wilson, Navorro Bowman, Arthur Jones, Aaron Hernandez
Mid: Freddie Barnes, Alterraun Verner, Pat Angerer, Brandon Carter, John Jerry
Late: Myron Rolle, Sam Young, Eric Olsen, Rashawn Jackson
2011: Ryan Mallett

Pro Style. Power running game with a great OL. Ingram fits this great. Calloway is a converted tackle, and Jerry is a mauler. The pair of tackles just knocks guys on their ass. Bryant/Shipley are my Moss/Welker. LeFevour can manage the game and try not to **** up. I can dominate the run game, but have playmakers to keep the defense honest. Shipley can roam the short passing game, Bryant is a freak. Greg Boone is a blocking TE that made 2nd team All-ACC, even with minimal receptions.

QB: Dan LeFevour (Late/FA)
RB: Mark Ingram (2011)
WR: Dez Bryant (Top 5)
WR: Jordan Shipley (Mid)
TE: Greg Boone (Late/FA)
LT: Anthony Davis (1)
LG: Kyle Calloway (Mid)
C: JD Walton (2-3)
RG: John Jerry (Mid)
RT: Trent Williams (Top 10)


3-4 D. A great 3-4 D is dependent upon LB play and a great NT. See Pittsburgh Steelers. Up the middle is unreal, and Gibson and Graham get to the QB.

A solid secondary with big hitters Chad Jones and Kam Chancellor. Hopefully the pass rush helps to mask coverage issues down the middle, but I have great CBs as well.

DE: CJ Wilson (Late/Fa)
NT: Dan Wilson (1)
DE: Vince Ogobogoboo (Mid)

OLB: Thaddeus Gibson (Late FA)
OLB: Brandon Graham (2-3)
MLB: R. McClain (1)
MLB: B. Spikes (2-3)

CB: Donovan Warren (2-3)
CB: Kyle Wilson (2-3)
FS: Chad Jones (2-3)
SS: Kam Chancellor (Mid)



Let me know any issues with player position. Scott has Shipley ranked in the 90s so thats 3-4 round border. Gibson might be the one guy with issues here.

Bring it on!

I think I found a very very good team, let me hear the feedback...

Offense – Run Heavy, Quick WCO Passing
Defense – Cover 2 with an attacking front 7 (although most of the pressure will come from the front 4)

QB – Zac Robinson, Oklahoma St. (Late)
RB – Ben Tate, Auburn (Mid)
FB – Toby Gerhart (Mid)
WR – Danario Alexander (Mid)
TE – Dorin Dickerson, Pittsburgh (Late)
LT – Anthony Davis, Rutgers (Top 10)
LG – Mike Iupati, Idaho (1st)
C – Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (2nd/3rd)
RG – John Jerry, Ole Miss (Mid)
RT – Bruce Campbell, Maryland (1st)
WR – Julio Jones, Alabama (2011)

The offense is simple and beautiful…run the ball behind an essentially unstoppable offensive line, pound the ball with Ben Tate and throw in Toby Gerhart (who will tween between RB on single back sets and FB in the I-Formation) and it’ll be hard and demanding for a defense to stop this running attack. Throw in two big receivers and the blocking up-field only gets better while Robinson will stay in his comfort zone of big tall, physical receivers (just like what he had at OSU with Dez Bryant) and he won’t be asked to do much more than throw some basic routs and some play-action throws off the run.

RE – Jason Pierre-Paul, South Florida (1st)
NT – Vince Oghobaase, Duke (Mid)
UT – Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska (Top 5)
LE – Corey Wootton, Northwestern (2nd/3rd)
WLB – Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri (1st)
MLB – Daryl Washington, TCU (2nd/3rd)
SLB – Sam Maxwell, Kentucky (Late)
CB – Kyle Wilson, Boise St. (2nd/3rd)
FS – Nate Allen, South Florida (2nd/3rd)
SS – Myron Rolle (Late)
CB – Perrish Cox, Oklahoma St. (2nd/3rd)

The defense is nicely well rounded but it’s clear that the greatest strength is in the defensive line. The combination of Suh and Oghobaase on the inside will help collapse he pocket while JPP does what he does best and attack from the weak side and Wootton has shown that he is a great two-way player with the ability to both play the run extremely well and get the passer at times. Also a guy like Wootton offers a lot of versatility with his ability to kick inside on passing downs. It’ll be hard to both run and/or pass on this line. The linebackers only enforce what the line does. Weatherspoon is an excellent all around player with the ability to play the pass, stop the run, be a leader, and can blitz too while Washington plays the pass well and can step up and take on the run too. Maxwell is the odd man out as a later rounder, but compliments the other too well and fills out a nice LB Corp. The backside will be a main reason the defensive line dominates so much. Both Wilson and Cox can be shut-down corners on their own side while Nate Allen has the skills to ball-hawks and play man-to-man in the nickel and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle with survey the entire thing while playing both as an in-the-box man and playing the usual deep cover 2 safety.

4 1st rounders
6 2nd/3rd rounders
5 Mid-rounders
4 Late rounders/UDFAs
1 2011 Draft Prospect[/B]


Just a note: I'm using Scott's mock draft/rankings to determine my player values. I would use my own rankings, but I find it's easier to put a kickass team (in my image) out there with Scott's values.

ThePudge 2010 Build a Prospects Team

Offense: Balanced
- With Mallett, a lot of options are open for this team in the passing game. He's paired with a Good OL that features a strong Guard/Center core (Iupati/Tennant/Jerry), a good pass-blocking LT in Charles Brown, and a raw but physically gifted OT Chris Scott. Jonathan Dwyer brings power between the tackles with breakaway speed and home run potential. Runs off right guard/tackle heavy with Iupati pulling and bringing three 325+ OL to one side of the field, and led by power run-blocking FB John Conner. The Wide Receivers include the athletic, sure-handed Damian Williams and Mardy Gilyard, a smooth, quick receiver who runs well after the catch and gets open. The X-Factor in the passing game is TE Jermaine Gresham who stretches the middle or the field, has superb hands & body control, and runs well after the catch.

QB: Ryan Mallett - Arkansas (2011 Prospect)
RB: Jonathan Dwyer - Georgia Tech (2nd-3rd Round)
FB: John Conner - Kentucky (Late Round/UDFA)
WR: Damian Williams - USC (2nd-3rd Round)
TE: Jermaine Gresham - Oklahoma (1st Rounder)
LT: Charles Brown (2nd-3rd Round)
LG: Mike Iupati - Idaho (1st Rounder)
C: Matt Tennant - Boston College (Mid-Rounder)
RG: John Jerry - Mississippi (Mid-Rounder)
RT: Chris Scott (Late Round/UDFA)
WR: Mardy Gilyard - Cincinnati (2nd-3rd Round)

Defense: 4-3, Man Coverage, Occasional Blitzing (Mostly Front Four)
- The first thing I notice on this defense is the ability to get after the passer with the front four (Morgan/Graham/Suh/Alualu) and the run-stopping ability that exists there as well with those DL and LBs Rolando McClain and Navorro Bowman. Cameron Sheffield is new to the Linebacker position, but is athletic , coachable, can rush the passer, and has made strides. If things weren't hard enough for the quarterback, just getting time doesn't guarantee a thing with two impressive man to man cornerbacks in Florida's Joe Haden and Rutgers' Devin McCourty. Haden may be the best man cornerback to come out in the past 5 yars and McCourty has the size (5'11 186), and has shown he can mirror anyone. The safeties are a balanced group. SS Darrell Stuckey is equally adept in run defense and pass coverage, while FS Chris Cook is a big versatile, nimble footed DB (college CB) with the ability to play a few positions in the Defensive Backfield and also cover the slot and TE's.

DE: Brandon Graham - Michigan (2nd-3rd Round pick)
DT: Ndamukong Suh - Nebraska (Top 5 pick)
DT: Tyson Alualu - California (Mid-Rounder)
DE: Derrick Morgan - Georgia Tech (1st Rounder)
WLB: Navorro Bowman - Penn State (2nd-3rd Round)
MLB: Rolando McClain - Alabama (1st Rounder)
SLB: Cameron Sheffield - Troy (Late Round/UDFA)
CB: Joe Haden - Florida (Top 10 pick)
FS: Chris Cook - Virginia (Late Round/UDFA)
SS: Darrell Stuckey - Kansas (Mid-Rounder)
CB: Devin McCourty - Rutgers (Mid-Rounder)

- Now that's a team I like

I love your secondary specially McCourty and Cook picks, althought i don't know if Cook could be more sucessfull playing FS than CB, IMO he has a great size but i just don't see him at tha position ;)

He's a versatile DB that in the current passing trend of late, would be a nice addition to a secondary. I think FS is the spot for him on my team and he'd most likely to see man coverage in the slot of on the outside in a 3 WR set, rather than a ball-hawking FS role. I think it fits enough for me. Thank you for the compliments man.

Offense: Run Oriented 2 Back system
Defense: 3-4 Aggressive - not very conventional either (similar to what Rob Ryan put on the field for the Browns the last part of the season)



Top 5: Suh
Top 10: McLain
1st: Anthony Davis, Thomas, Iupati, Odrick
2nd and 3rd: Brandon Graham, Sapp, Wilson, Warren, Calloway, Jerry
Mid: Cooper, Chaney, Hoomanawanui, Hawley, Skelton
Late/UDFAs: Mathews, Blount, Ross, Rolle
2011: Ingram

QB: Skelton
RB: Ingram, Blount
WR: Cooper
TE: Hoomanawanui
OT: Calloway
OG: Iupati
C: Hawley (I know nothing of the Cs in this years class, I place him as a 5th rounder based on his position ranking)
OG: Jerry
OT: Davis
WR: Mathews

DE: Suh
NT: Ross (Don't need a typical NT with the DEs and LBs on the rest of the front 7)
DE: Odrick
OLB: Graham
ILB: McLain
ILB: Chaney
OLB: Sapp
CB: Wilson
S: Thomas
S: Rolle
CB: Warren

O-Line is the offensive strength. Skelton basically hands off 40-50 times a game, gets about 10-15 passes. RBs should each average 5 ypc and possibly go both for 1000 yds. WRs are serviceable and mostly decoys, but have the deep play ability to keep the safety out of the box for the run game. Offense isn't flashy, but if you like smashmouth, this could work for ya.

Defense........Suh and Odrick would cause nightmares for opposing Os. Both could end up occupying 2 blockers leaving the NT taking up one man. The LBs should all end up on the Pro-Bowl. McLain keeps the front 7 in position as he becomes a team captain. The CBs don't need to be shut-down corners, just good #2s. Rolle is the Captain of the secondary, while Thomas becomes a playmaker. Constantly leads the league in sacks and Ints.

Oh.....to dream:cool:

QB - Tim Tebow (2nd/3rd)
RB - Jonathan Dwyer (2nd/3rd)
WR - AJ Green (2011)
WR - Riley Cooper (Mid Rounder)
WR/RB - Dexter McCluster (2nd/3rd)
TE/OT - Bruce Campbell (1st Rounder)
OT - Vladimir Ducasse (2nd/3rd)
OG - John Jerry (Mid Rounder)
C - Kevin Matthews (Late Rounder/UDFA)
OG - Mike Iupati (1st Rounder)
OT - Bryan Bulaga (Top 10 Pick)

The offense is built on running the football. Tebow may be a controversial pick, but I constructed this team based on leadership, heart, and toughness. The skilled position players (Tebow, Dwyer, and McCluster) scored a combined 36 rushing td's last year in college. In comparison the Jets led the NFL with 21 rushing td's this year. Green is one of the most talented wr's in years, and will help stretch the field. Cooper already has chemistry with Tebow, and is a good blocker in the run game. The offensive line dominates at the point of attack, and Campbell allows the team to use the unbalanced line.

DE - Jammie Kirlew (Mid Rounder)
DT - Ndamukong Suh (Top 5 Pick)
DT - Terrence Cody (2nd/3rd)
DE - James Ruffin (Late Rounder/UDFA)
OLB - Sean Weatherspoon (1st Rounder)
ILB - Rolando McClain (1st Rounder)
OLB - O'Brien Schofield (Mid Rounder)
CB - Donovan Warren (2nd/3rd)
S - Myron Rolle (Late Rounder/UDFA)
S - Darrell Stuckey (Late Rounder/UDFA)
CB - Devin McCourty (Mid Rounder)

I built this defense in the same mold of the 2000 Ravens Defense. Up front Cody and Suh are the Sam Adams/Tony Siragusa part 2. Kirlew and Ruffin are great hustle players with non stop motors. The linebackers are fast and aggressive. They basically have one on one matchups with Cody and Suh taking up double teams. The secondary is built around experience. McCourty is an aggressive corner who has improved each year. Warren is a high potential guy who will develop once he can settle down into one defensive scheme. Rolle and Stuckey are all around great players who are not afraid to make tackles.

Top 5 Pick - Ndamukong Sug
Top 10 Pick - Bryan Bulaga
1st Rounder- Campbell, Iupati, Weatherspoon, McClain
2nd/3rd - Tebow, Dwyer, McCluster, Ducasse, Cody, Warren
Mid Rounder - Cooper, Jerry, Kirlew, Schofield, McCourty
Late Rounder/UDFA - Matthews, Ruffin, Rolle, Stuckey
2011 - AJ Green

Run heavy power offense ala Titans or Jets
Bill Parcells style 3-4 defense

QB- Jarrett Brown (mid) West Virginia
RB- Mark Ingram (2011) Alabama
FB- Cory Jackson (Late/UDFA) Maryland
WR- Brandon Lafell (2nd/3rd) LSU
WR- Damian Williams (2nd/3rd) USC
TE- Anthony McCoy (2nd/3rd) USC
LT- Bryan Bulaga (Top 10) Iowa
LG- Ciron Black (Mid round) LSU
C- Maurkice Pouncey (1st round) Florida
RG- Brandon Carter (late round) Texas Tech
RT- Anthony Davis (1st round) Rutgers

How do you stop that? You'd really have a hard time doing that. The offensive line is huge, mean, talented, strong and powerful that will destroy any defensive lines in run blocking and they're more than capable of pass blocking as well. The only real weak link on the line is Brandon Carter but he is a monster in run blocking. Mark Ingram will have holes you could drive a truck through especially considering Corey Jackson is a great lead blocker and Anthony McCoy is also a good blocker. And at the WR spot they have two solid players, not particularly explosive but they can block and they can make key catches.

LE- Brandon Deaderick (Late/UDFA) Alabama
NT- Cam Thomas (2nd/3rd) UNC
RE- Linval Joseph (Mid round) ECU
SLB- Thaddeus Gibson (2nd/3rd) Ohio St.
ILB- Micah Johnson (late/UDFA) Kentucky
ILB- Phillip Dilliard (Mid round) Nebraska
WLB- Brandon Graham (1st round) Michigan
CB- Kyle Wilson (1st round) Boise St.
SS- Nate Allen (2nd/3rd) USF
FS- Eric Berry (Top 5) Tennessee
CB- Trevard Lindley (Mid round) Kentucky

The defensive line is underrated on this, Deadrick, Thomas and Joseph are all very solid players. Deadrick is a very powerful DE who played the spot in college. And rushing the passer is a pair of big 10 pass rushers, Brandon Graham and Thaddeus Gibson. On the inside there is Micah Johnson who is more than capable of thumping inside a 3-4 defense and beside him is Phillip Dilliard who is IMO one of the more underrated linebackers in this draft, he is good in all aspects of the game, very well rounded. And in the secondary good luck separating from Kyle Wilson and getting over the top of Nate Allen and Eric Berry, the only real chance you've got is Lindley but he is a good man to man corner so... yeah... good luck.

Offense-
Im turning this aroud and going with WVU offense. OL is run blockers, TE will run block and have one true WR threat.

QB- Jarret Brown- Late-rounder= Who better then to run the WVU then their actual QB?
RB- Joe McKnight- 2nd/3rd= Fast RB to help get to the holes quick.
FB- Toby Gerhart 2nd/3rd= Scotts projections say he is a FB, so I am gonna use this to my advantage.
WR- Julio Jones- 2011 Prospect= My favorite player next year becomes a threat to the offense I need.
WR- David Nelson- UDFA= I know ZERO about this guy, but as my UDFA(again going by Scotts projections) he is HUGE and I hope will help the run block.
TE- Colin Peek- Mid-Rounder= Run blocker who can go out for a pass.
LT- Trent Williams- First rounder
LG- Mike Iupati- First rounder
C- J.D. Walton- 2nd/3rd Rounder
RG- Sergio Render- Mid- Rounder
RT- Sam Young Late-Rounder

Defense-
3-4 With blitzing like crazy.
DE- Lorenzo Washington- Late-Rounder
DT- Terrance Cody- 2nd/3rd Rounder: Only true NT in the whole thing
DE- Brandon Deadrick- Mid-Rounder
OLB- Rico McCoy- Late Rounder= Can he play 3-4 OLB? Idk. Just needed a late rounder and he is 2nd on all-time Tackles at UT.
MLB- Sean Weatherspoon- First Rounder= Moves to ILB and just flat out tackles.
MLB-Rolando McClain- First Rounder= Anchor of the D
OLB- Eric Norwood- 2nd/3rd= Can play anything.
CB- Joe Haden- Top 10= Only need in the 5-10 Range.
FS- Berry- Top 5= Ball hawk safety to compliment the more aggressive.....
SS- Taylor Mays- First Rounder- Plays the run well and Berry and him work together (I know both SS but this is my team remember ;))
CB- Amari Spivey- Mid-Rounder= Eh.... Just Ehh...

Top 5- Berry
Top 10- Haden
1st- Williams, McClain, Mays, Weatherspoon
2nd/3rd- McKnight, Gerhart, Walton, Cody, Norwood
Mid-Rounder-Peek, Render, Deadrick, Spivey
Late-Rounder/UDFA- Brown, Nelson, Washington, McCoy
2011 Prospect- Julio Jones

Duffman57
03-28-2010, 06:58 PM
This sounds like a fun game, and definitely one that i am board enough to do. And by the way, i wouldn't consider Davis a top 10 pick, but whatever.

So here it goes.

Offense: Pro Style, Power

QB: Jake Locker, Washington (2011)
RB: LeGarrette Blount, Oregon (late)
FB: Rashawn Jackson, Virginia (late)
WR: Demarius Thomas, Ga Tech (Mid)
WR: Damian Williams, USC (2nd/3rd)
TE: Jimmy Graham (mid)
LT: Bruce Campbell, Maryland (1st)
LG: Mike Iupati, Idaho (1st)
C: Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (mid)
RG: Sergio Render, Va Tech (late)
RT: Vladimir Ducasse, Umass (2nd/3rd)

Strategy: Run the ball and wear down D's which will open up lanes for the passing game. Let the big boys up front dominate with one of the better OL's and make teams commit to the run, and let a guy who is a great rout runner with good speed in Williams hit them with a short gain and burn them after the catch, or let Thomas and Graham use their big bodies to shield off defenders and make big catches. Also use some routs with the RB and FB out of the backfield. Basic Strategy, pound the ball.

Defense: 3-4, Run Stopping

OLB: Jerry Hughes, TCU (2nd/3rd)
DE: Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska (top 5)
NT: Terrance Cody, Bama (2nd/3rd)
DE: Linval Joseph, ECU (late)
OLB: Thaddeus Gibson, Ohio State (mid)
ILB: Rolando McClain, Bama (1st)
ILB: Brandon Spikes, Florida (2nd/3rd)
CB: Joe Haden, Florida (Top 10)
FS: Earl Thomas, Texas (1st)
SS: Chad Jones, LSU (mid)
CB: Donovan Warren, Michigan (2nd/3rd)

Strategy: Allow my DL and ILBg to play run first, so that i can use my CB's, and S's to focus on the pass and my OLB's to just do what they do best and rush the passer. I got very instinctual leaders at ILB so that they will make reeds quickly and be able to break on the ball in their zone coverages and in the run game. I purposely got very good coverage S's and CB's so i could put them in alot of man coverage to counter alot of WR's, but at the same time, i purposly got big and dominate space eater type D linemen to keep my LB's clean and allow them to see what is going on in the backfield and make plays and reeds quickly. Basic strategy, let the playmakers make plays.

Alright so...

Top 5: Suh
Top 10: Haden
1st: McClain, Iupati, Campbell, Thomas (Earl)
2nd/3rd: Spikes, Warren, Ducasse, Hughes, Cody, Williams
Mid: Thomas (Demarius), Graham, Gibson, Jones, Pouncey
Late: Blount, Jackson, Render, Joseph

NOW who likes my beastly team?????

lol, my guys value changed SOOOOO much. I have a few guys who are WAY ahead of where i projected them. Like Thomas, Pouncey etc...

I think i should win since zachsaints52 tried to cheat his way to the title...lol

Did I win?

Caulibflower
03-29-2010, 02:07 AM
I had to do one. I know it's an old thread.

Offense:

QB: Jake Locker (2011 pick)
RB: Toby Gerhart (2-3rd)
RB/WR: Dexter McCluster (2-3rd)
FB/TE/WR: Dorin Dickerson (Mid)
WR: Golden Tate (2-3rd –Scott’s got him going in the second in his mock…)
WR: Eric Decker (3-4th = Mid-ish?)
LT: Russell Okung (Top-5ish)
LG: Mike Iupati (1st)
C: Matt Tennent (Mid)
RG: John Jerry (Mid)
RT: Trent Williams (Top-10)

Since I’m only allowed to pick 11 guys, I tried to get the most versatile lineup possible. In Locker I’ve got a QB who can be a drop-back passer, run bootlegs and even the occasional option. Gerhart can work out of the single back or line up at fullback in front of McCluster. I’d consider Gerhart my main running back; McCluster would be split out a lot, and I’d bring him behind Locker for 3rd downs and the occasional running play. I’d let Gerhart pound it and give McCluster 5-10 carries a game and throw him some bubble screens, shovel passes, reverses and whatever other mismatches defenses give me. Dickerson would obviously be lined up all over the place, including out wide; the only thing I worry about is if I’d be hurting myself by not choosing a solid blocker at TE or FB. Golden Tate and Eric Decker would complement each other nicely. I splurged on my O-Line. Okung and Iupati on the left side are reminiscent of Jones and Hutchison in Seattle a few years ago, and I went ahead on put Trent Williams on the right side to complete the juggernaut. Tennent’s a smart, athletic guy at center; Jerry’s a physical mauler at right guard.

Defense:

DE: Greg Hardy (Mid)
DT: Dan Williams (1st)
DT: LaMarr Houston (2-3rd)
DE: Jeffrey Fitzgerald (Late)
OLB: Keaton Kristick (Late)
MLB: Donald Butler (2-3rd)
OLB: Kavell Conner (Late)
CB: Joe Haden (1st)
CB: Kyle Wilson (1st)
FS: Nate Allen (2-3rd)
SS: Kam Chancellor (Late)

I’ve got the stout with Dan Williams and the quick with LaMarr Houston. Greg Hardy drops to the 4th round and reminds people that he shouldn’t have. Jeffrey Fitzgerald is a random player I found who’d been pretty productive, but missed a year of playing time. My OLBs are two fast, super-productive guys who were team leaders and have decent size, but aren't being projected as high picks. They’ll play with a chip on their shoulder- I’m sure of it. Donald Butler gives me a fast, athletic guy in the middle who has good range. Nobody wants to have to pick between throwing at Joe Haden or Kyle Wilson, and that’s the beauty of it; the D-line won’t let anyone run on it, Hardy can get to the passer, Fitzgerald can hold his own on the strong side, and my fast linebackers can fill the gaps. Also in the secondary are Nate Allen and Kam Chancellor. Allen’s a smart, athletic guy who won’t mess up his assignments or get blown past. Kam Chancellor will just lurk back there and scare the bejeezus out of everyone.

^^ I'd say you have 3 top 10 players with Haden on there, and I'd also say you're being generous calling John Jerry a mid round pick, he's looking like a 2nd rounder.

OK, Here we go.

On offense, I'd go a lot of 3 wide, with McCluster playing a Harvin type role. Would probably be best served using a Shanahan style zone running attack, and run a lot of playaction and bootlegs.

Defensively I like to have a rock solid front 4. Obviously we would be a 4-3 base. Very athletic and speedy LBs, and long, DBs.

RB - Ryan Mathews (2nd/3rd rounder)
