Really like the Brown pick. I almost picked him over Clady. He's a stud in both the run and pass game.
Kenny F'ing Powers said:I think you got the best left tackle and he is the third left tackle off the board. He struggled in the last 4 games of the year, and I don't think it's a coincidence that Houston's offense struggled at the same time. Up until that point, he had only let up 1 sack in his last 29 games. he's also only been called for a holding penalty once, in his rookie year in 2008. I think that he is the best left tackle in football. Good pick.
Snake draftBoSoxFink said:I love the Brown pick, when I was drafting it was between a Defensive End who can rush the passer or an OT. I almost took Brown but I went the JPP route instead. I think besides QB, either OT or DE are the two most important positions on the field.
Also I didn't see it mentioned in the first post, but are doing a snake draft or just a straightforward 1 to 32 draft?
I think, as we've seen even with the Pats, a top RB isn't the recipe for success in this league. A guy like AP is probably the only RB I would have selected in the first round. Seems like you wanting AP led to the Foster pick.CaptainLaddie said:
I liked it, as MM said Foster is an absolute beast. My only concern would be the usage, and additionally I don't feel the gap between the top backs and the rest of the field is as large as it is with other positions i.e QB, LT, DECaptainLaddie said:

The NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Hayward is certainly a gamble this high.
IMO, the best value is either Cam Newton at 13 or Geno Atkins at 23. I was hoping Atkins would last one more pick, but getting the top interior D lineman at 23 is pretty damn good value and a great way to start building a top defense. I really like that pick. Patrick Peterson at 30 is another one I liked a lot.SeoulSoxFan said:As I had feared, the top LTs going off the board fast. Man snake draft takes a loooooooooooong time to make it up the board.
A quick poll: who had the best value pick in Round 1? Biggest reach?

CaptainLaddie said:I actually think Gronk at 25 is an incredible pick. Gronk, when healthy, is pretty much the 2nd most uncoverable player in the NFL behind Megatron. Add in the fact that he blocks like a very good lineman and you've got a stew goin'.
You weren't the only one thinking that. I actually had the Matthews pick all typed out, but changed my mind after looking over Rivers' numbers from the past few years and some factors that may have contibuted to his 2012 struggles.SeoulSoxFan said:
Getting Peterson at 30 is a great pick I thought, but I would have doubled-down on D by getting someone like Clay Matthews (left on board at Dollar's spot) or get a key OL piece like Kalil, and draft a younger QB much later on.
Edit: DanoooMe- since you felt the need to use a picture of your guy blocking our guy, I felt the need to use a picture of our guy killing the guy your guy is supposed to protect. So there. Take that. I hope your franchise tackle enjoys blocking for a guy with scrambled eggs for brains.
