How much higher do you think he'll be picked in real life?
We are a long way from the draft, but he could be a 2nd round pick. Good speed, good size, and his coverage ability has shown up on tape. Definitely a guy who could move up or stay underrated in the draft communities eyes, but I can see a team taking him a half round to a whole round earlier.
I didn't "want" to trade Locker... I was just willing to listen to offers for him in case anyone was really desperate to get him.
Instead, I moved Quinn for a great value for both sides
Detroit should've followed your approach instead of trading for has beens. That's the right way to rebuild. I'm fine with sprinkling in vets, but I would never agree to trading the 6th overall pick for Merriman who is surrounded with concerns.
21.Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missou
Value was way too good to pass up here. Also fills a need as Witherspoon isn't young and Gocong is set to become a free agent.
53. Jason Fox, OT, Miami
Eagles don't really have any big needs, but with Shawn Andrews health a big question mark I went with the top OT on the board in Fox. He's had a great year so far in Miami and is a good fit in Philly.
74. Noel Devine, RB, WVU
With the Eagles declining the option on Westbrook's contract it appears his days as an Eagle are limited. Westbrook has been plagued by injuries and at 31 he isn't getting any younger. The Eagles bring in Devine who will play a role similar to Darren Sproles of the Chargers. Devine will take some carries off of Shady's hands and will also return kicks/punts. Just another explosive weapon on the Eagles offense.
85. Lindsey Witten, DE, UConn
Juqua Parker is 32 and Victor Abiamiri can't seem to stay healthy so I opted for the best DE on the board. Witten has proved he can get to the quarterback and will look great lined up opposite Trent Cole.
Stacy Andrews, RG
5th round pick
Charles Tillman, CB
Contracts are equal, but with Ellis Hobbs due to become a free agent I brought in Tillman as a replacement. Andrews was 2nd on the depth chart behind MJG.
I wonder if I can get up tonight. If not, I'm sure all three of my picks will hit tomorrow while teaching :(
Last summer I actually wrote a curriculum for teaching sports statistics and sports journalism using the Louisiana Benchmarks and GLE's. I wait for the day that I have an open minded principal I can pitch that to. It would eliminate conundrums such as yours.
