    Introduce your rookies and what kind of impact will they give your team?

    If you were present, who drafted well, who drafted poorly, and whatever else you want to say about the 2015 draft.


    Notable:

    Saints ( NeuroticTruth ) made a deal with the Giants ( Danthraxxx ) to draft QB Willie Duckett #1 overall
    Giants Receive:
    Saints 2015 1st Round Pick - Pick #17
    Saints 2015 1st Round Pick - Pick #29
    Saints 2015 1st Round Pick - Pick #32
    Saints 2015 2nd Round Pick - Pick #23

    Saints Receive:
    Giants 2015 1st Round Pick - Pick #1
    Giants 2015 7th Round Pick - Pick #1

    Cardinals ( Baron ) made a deal to get the #5 pick and bring MLB Leroy Lester to Arizona with Buccaneers ( Bucs )

    Cards receive:
    #5 pick 2015 (this year)

    Bucs receive:
    CB A. Cason 86 OVR
    #20 pick 2015 (this year)
    2nd round pick 2016 (next year)

    Texans ( TEClemson53 ) and Saints had a good percentage of the first two rounds with their picks.

    I think the Broncos ( Masler ) get a steal at #21 with RE Taz Trodder

    The Bengals ( bjbdahitman ) get the best corner at #6 in Deon Long

    San Diego Chargers
    The San Diego Chargers went into the draft looking to strengthen their offensive line as well as get some help at the skill positions. While they picked up a future starter in Tackle Korey Louis-Jean, the remainder of the draft left a lot to be desired as only three or the remaining six picks made the roster.

    Round Pick Position Name College Height & Weight OVR Grade Depth Chart Comments[/B]
    1 11 LT Korey Louis-Jean Korey Louis-Jean 6'5", 341 lbs 80 A Two Deep He may or may not start his first year, but should definitely be on the line in year two
    2 11 QB Curtis Motes Austin Peay 6'6", 231 lbs 73 B Two Deep He'll eventually replace Rivers, but not who we were looking to draft
    3 11 HB Rashon Maxime Idaho State 6'5", 251 lbs 64 C- 53 man His main drawback is his lack of speed, but otherwise is a solid player; may be moved to FB in future
    4 11 OLB Auntrell Sparks Purdue 6'3", 252 lbs 60 F Preseason Cut With limited scouting, he turned out much worse than expected
    5 11 WR Timmy Gentry Arizona 6'4", 216 lbs 68 C 53 man Great speed and acceleration, but lacks fundamentals
    6 11 CB Pappas Collins Charleston S 6'2", 187 63 F Preseason Cut Took a shot in the dark…obviously missed
    7 11 TE Poppy Dukes E Washington 6'6", 241 lbs 62 F Preseason Cut Took a shot in the dark…obviously missed

    Tampa came into the draft with only 4 picks. Round 1 and then Round 5-7. We knew we needed to make every one count . We give ourselves a B -.

    Round 1 - We traded the #5 overall pick to Arizona for CB Antoine Cason and the #20 pick which turned into LG Quinston Mendoza (80 OVR). So while we didnt get the big name in the draft we did turn the pick into two starters. We call that a success.

    Round 5 - Here we took Kameel Cofield, Defensive Tackle out of Navy. We like his value in the 5th at 71 overall. He isn't going to be a starter with the defensive linemen we have in place, but he is in the rotation and actually hurried the quarterback a couple of times in our first game against the Raiders.

    Round 6 - OLB Trovonnie Felton. 56 overall bust. Cut from the team

    Round 7 - WR Angelo Trejo - Complete shot in the dark, turned out to be 63 overall. Made the final roster though and provides a big target at 6'4 214.


    So we basically got 2 starters out of 4 picks. Meh.

    Buffalo Bills Draft Recap

    1st round- RG George Huval 6'4 325 74 ovr.

    Pretty solid pick in my opinion. 80 RBK, 85 PBK. We needed help on the offensive line and he should be able to get in the game this season every now and then and hopefully make a difference. We're coming off a season where we got to the Superbowl, and returned all of our key players. We didn't need a Pro Bowl player here, just someone to add some depth. Solid pick that I'm happy with.

    2nd Round- DE Daryl Nealy 69 ovr.

    Nealy is a speedy defensive end that's very raw. He's sitting behind Jerry Hughes and Mario Williams for the next few years so he'll have time to develop. This wasn't the best 2nd round pick, but it was far from a terrible pick. He has speed to make plays, we just need to work on his ability to get off blocks from offensive lineman. Like I said, long as we don't have an injury, he'll have time to develop behind two very good defensive ends.

    3rd round- Traded to Indianapolis in a trade which we acquired Vontae Davis. A huge get for us.

    4th Round- SS Claudeson Finner 5'11 192 74 ovr.

    Aaron Williams will be the starting SS for the near future, but this gives us a guy to develop to eventually be his replacement. 75 MCV and 80 ZCV are both great starting spots for a rookie. Also a 74 catch rating means he won't be dropping many interceptions which will be a nice change. The only knock on him is he doesn't have a lot of hit power and isn't the best tackler. Hopefully he can improve on both of those traits and be ready when he's called upon to take over in Buffalo.


    5th, 6th, and 7th rounders were cut.


    Overall, this was a decent draft for us. We have 2 guys that will for sure play at some point, and a 3rd if Nealy can develop. Also, we pick up a #1 CB, when we were looking to get a solid #2 guy, so between Davis and Gilmore, we should have two pretty solid, lockdown corners which will allow us to run coverages that we weren't able to run last season. Like I've mentioned, we didn't need any big time players to come in and make an impact immediately. We brought back the core of our team, so we just need some guys to add depth, learn, and eventually have the ability to take over a starting job.

    The new ownership in Dallas was not in place this year to make a big impact on the draft.
    However they did approve of the coaches decision to draft TE Dallas Howe in the first round.
    Dallas is a speedy TE with good hands and will be a major factor in the offense in the near future.
