Brag about your draft picks here...
Cleveland had a terrible draft lol.
I was so glad you didn't take Ahead in the first
Let the rosterbating begin gents
My draft was so fucking good hnngghh
The Washington Redskins had a decent draft. Got so much needed CBs, they had only 2 entering the draft. They also got some depth on the defensive line. Another late round wide receiver to help the aging WR corp.

2015 Draft - Detroit Lions
Rd 1 Pick 32 - CB Deshawn Foster
OVR: 78 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/1834837/attributes
After saying goodbye to their 2 former starting CBs, Detroit was hoping to find a player in the first round capable of immediately contributing. Foster comes in with NFL-ready coverage skill and the versatility to play zone or man at a high level. His top-end speed leaves something to be desired, but his acceleration is elite. The Lions coaches like how quickly he's developed in training camp and will give him an opportunity to earn the nickel job this season.
Rd 2 Pick 14 (via Dallas) - SS Ethan Bloom
OVR: 81 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2198983/attributes
Both of Detroit's starting safeties are on big contracts and nearing the wrong side of 30. They didn't need to address S this season, but it was a goal if the opportunity arose. When Bloom fell to the middle of the 2nd round, they pounced and found their SS of the future. With WR-like hands and elite acceleration for the position, the coaches hope he will develop into a ball-hawking QB's nightmare and will be hard-pressed to keep him off the field for long.
Rd 2 Pick 32 - RG Roy Kitchens
OVR: 76 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2198979/attributes
Although Detroit returns all 5 starters, depth along the offensive line was very thin coming into the season. They were hoping to find a promising lineman who would be capable of eventually handling C duties when Montgomery was no longer able. It's unclear whether Kitchens is up to that task, as his skillset is that of a more conventional run-blocking guard. None-the-less he should be a valuable backup and capable of stepping in for any injuries across any of the 3 interior positions.
Rd 3 Pick 32 - LOLB Brent Phelps
OVR: 74 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2198981/attributes
With the departure of standout starting LB DeAndre Levy during the offseason, OLB was a position the Lions wanted to improve. It was unclear if they would be able to find any true upgrade over projected starter Kyle van Noy outside of the first couple rounds, as van Noy had performed well enough during the SB run with Levy hurt. Phelps has elite physical ability for a linebacker and could definitely develop into a solid starting-caliber player, but it's unclear whether he'll get that opportunity in Detroit.
Rd 4 Pick 14 (via Dallas) - ROLB Kirkland Dickson
OVR: 79 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2198982/attributes
The Lions nearly selected this ROLB out of Auburn a round earlier, and when they saw him still on the board, they had him graded as the best player still available. Dickson immediately surprised coaches with his speed, instincts, & ability to play in coverage. After only a few practices, it was clear that Dickson needed to see the field quickly. Coach Francis is moving him to LOLB where he will compete for the starting position--and early rumblings are that van Noy will be hard pressed to keep his job over this talented rookie.
Rd 4 Pick 32 - FS Kalik Duncan
OVR: 78 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2198984/attributes
Although Duncan comes in NFL-ready, he hasn't been nearly as quick this early in his development as fellow rookie S Ethan Bloom. His coverage skills are lacking, as well, and while he certainly projects to be a high-quality 3rd S for seasons to come, he may never be the impact playmaker they hope can take over for Quin down the line.
Rd 6 Pick 32 - QB Carter Burrell
OVR: 54 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/1837832/attributes
Management wanted to bring in a rookie to groom into a reliable backup QB, but Burrell seems too raw to be a #2. It's uncertain whether he'll make the final 53, and if he does, it's likely it'll be as a 3rd stringer as Detroit looks to find someone more experienced to backup Stafford.
Rd 7 Pick 32 - TE Tarus Patterson
OVR: 74 http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2198980/attributes
Mr. Irrelevant isn't entirely. He was drafted for his blocking prowess while at Rice, but he doesn't really have a standout NFL skillset. Still, he has a shot to make the final roster unless the Lions sign another TE to replace him.
Overall grade: B+. This was an all-around solid draft, where none of their bevy of picks in the first 4 rounds were wasted. They come away with an immediate contributor at CB, a starting LOLB, and a SS who could be starting as early as next season. But their 1st round pick wasn't the clear-cut megastud of last year, where RT Kevin Cox enters into any discussion of best players in that entire class. Still, they found more NFL-ready talent deeper in the draft despite picking later--all in all, a success.
Most questionable pick: FS Kalik Duncan. The Lions needed a solid backup QB, already had addressed S, and wouldn't pick again until the very end of the 6th round. There several such QBs on the board when they took Duncan instead.
Best pick: Kirkland Dickson, 4th round. After already drafting an OLB 14 picks before, they were hesitant to go there again when the need had been addressed. However, their grade was a bit too high to pass up, and their patience was rewarded with an instant playmaker who has a chance to develop into an elite OLB down the line.
Hmm. Maclin's an 80 on my screen/scheme...
From what I've seen, and this is dead seriousness, Rams didn't just have another good draft: imo they had the best draft of anyone. Like, absurd draft by the CPU Rams lol.
Rams and lions won the draft
Seahawks had a much better draft than last year.
1st round 29th pick. LT Morgan Kelly. 75 Ovr
2nd round 29th pick ROLB Darqueze Scott 76 OVR
3rd round 23 pick (From Eagles, for 2015 5th round, 2016 3rd round) LE James Beck 68 OVR
4th round 29th pick QB Glenn Shaw 66 OVR
5th round 32 pick WR Jarell Mulling 55 OVR (already cut)
6th round 29th pick HB Logan Hurd 63 OVR
7th round 29th pick RE Ian Gaines 61 OVR
Overalls are based on my schemes.
Second draft in a row the #1 megahyped prospect probably wasn't the best prospect at their own position? With all due respect to Boatwright, who I'm sure LSUTRUTH was happy to get, he wasn't the best CB in the draft.
This guy was:
Chiefs made decent use of their first four picks and found an rb3 in the 5th round.

They are very close. I knew about Rodgers.
They're both definitely studs.
2016 New Orleans Saints Draft:
1st Round Pick 28 : Chioke Hamilton (Star) http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/1837907/attributes
After releasing Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs from the roster in this offseason. Then losing rising star Tim Lelito to the Eagles. The Saints had some major holes that needed to be addressed in the Offensive line. After picking up Hamilton and finding out he was as good as the scouting reports said, he's promoted to starter to serve on one of young up and coming offensive lines in the league.
2nd Round Pick 28: Morgan Dickerson (Fast) http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2199061/attributes
After cutting veteran Marques Colston from the roster after a career year the Saints had some speed concerns on the WR side of the ball especially after trading speedy Kenny Stills. The speed has been more than addressed by Dickerson. He's rough around some edges and will need some work but he will be a top tier reciever soon in this vertical offense.
I traded the rest of picks to LSUTRUTH for his #1 next year in hopes of continuing to build this New Orlean Saints team. With Drew Brees's career in New Orleans possibly coming to an end this year there are some definitive holes that need to be filled QB, HB, DT, and OLine. For this year we will make some free agent pickups and hope we can make a solid run to the Super Bowl in 2016.
Ps- I aplogize for my girlfriend coming home early and being noisy, she doesn't understand the concept of taking something like madden seriously. Needless to say Madden>Girlfriend, Good fun draft overall.
2016 Jaguars Draft Class
1st Round-Traded to KC for Jamaal Charles
2nd Round-Traded last year to TEN for a 3rd rounder in last years draft.
3rd Round- RG Philip Haden http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2199038
After trying vigorously to move up in the draft to take a different guard didn't pan out Haden fell to us in the 3rd round and we couldn't pass him up. He will come in and be the starter from Day 1 and we will look to keep building on our O-line unit in the future.
4th Round- TE Skylar Irvin http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2199039
We signed Greg Olsen to a 1 year deal and were looking to add a TE in this draft and Irvin fell to us in the 4th round and we took a flyer on him and it worked out should be a solid TE for the future.
5th Round- MLB Irvin Gandy http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/1834834
Picked Gandy because he was a projected first rounder and the reason he lasted so long is he isn't very good outside of hit power and has decent speed. He may make the team he may not we will see.
6th Round- DT Bill Rhodes http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/1837795
I am very excited I was able to get Rhodes on another blind pick as he has ridiculous speed and acceleration for a DT. His block shedding isn't great and he needs work but he is athletic enough to make the squad.
7th Round- WR Martinez Gilmore http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/2199042
After missing out on every guard in the draft that I wanted the madden gods gave me a gift with Gilmore. Elite speed and solid catching he will definitely be competing for the #3 spot this season but has already been given kick and punt return duties.
Yeah he was my main target coming into the Draft, him or right guard Quick who I think the Packers picked up. Was hoping for more out of maclin but only having one dt, it was a huge need on my roster.
The receiver I took was just in hopes of landing another Newsome and using him to trade lol.
Because I'm at work and don't have time for detailed notes...
The Bills had a pretty mediocre draft.... before people jump my case about drafting 2 Star players, let me explain
The Bills biggest needs are and remain to be - Developmental DT, Developmental CB, Developmental HB
What did the Bills get?
1st - OLB Sean Jernigan - 84ovr - Well they got a Stud OLB. He was the highest graded player remaining on their board so they took him. He's strictly depth and trade bait however. Even so, the Bills still have Derrick Johnson on their roster so they already have a stud backup. Ultimately, Bills got minimal help for S3 with their 1st rounder.
2nd - QB Brandon Cobb - 67ovr - The Bills perhaps showed their hand a bit in not having unlimited faith in EJ Manuel. Manuel has been solid but ultimately hasn't developed into a franchise QB despite their best efforts. So they took a guy here in the 2nd that they still had a 1st round grade on. While he is decidedly NOT a franchise QB, he is actually quite good. Just not good enough to really create a QB controversy in Buffalo. So again, just a depth player and NOT an impact for S3 unless there is injury. Could be trade bait for any QB needy teams out there though.
3rd - RG Griffin Ingram - 68ovr - The Bills needed interior OL depth now that they shipped away the aging but great player in Kraig Urbik. Ingram is a small project but has real talent. The Bills are actually pretty happy with this pick
3rd - TE De'Arius Gaitor - 74ovr - He's a big TE at 6'6 261 and has decent runblocking skills which is why he was picked but he lacks muscle and is merely average athletically. Again, another project in Buffalo. Probably a failed project I might add.
4th - DT Demetrich Small - 63ovr - Few projects have as much physical talent as Small so this is an interesting player in Buffalo. Can they dedicate the time he needs in order to really turn him into an impact player? I doubt it. Another swing and miss for Buffalo and this was a pick they traded UP in order to get which magnifies the mistake.
4th - CB Grant Okuyemi - 74ovr - On paper Okuyemi looks great but in reality despite his Star potential he only has 88spd. So ultimately he'll never be a cornerstone in Buffalo. So swing and miss. Perhaps he can move to safety as he does have 79 strength but at least for now, he'll probably remain buried on the depth chart. So again, a swing and miss for Buffalo
5th - CB Deon'tae Fitzgerald - 66ovr - Determined to take another crack at a CB worth developing, Buffalo swung again at this years DB class. This time they connected on a player with high end physicals, albeit not elite, and decent cover attributes. Solid pick here for Buffalo
6th - WR Suck-a-Nut - Suck a nut was so bad Buffalo was ashamed to even admit they drafted him which is why his name is redacted here
7th - HB Rodney Meyer - 65ovr- Meyer was drafted with a lot of promise based on scouting reports. But alas, like many players, all of his scouting numbers had to have been forged. He's just a slow, average RB. He may catch on a team somewhere because he's not terrible... but not good enough to stick in Buffalo thats for sure.
So what did the Bills get this draft? A whole lotta nothin. Struck out in Free Agency. Struck out in the Draft. Its gonna be a long season of getting beat down by the Patriots, you can pretty much guarantee.
That QB is a stud, nice pick.
Thanks, hopefully I can progress him nicely.
I was high on Jernigan, but I projected him being a 2nd rounder.....boy was i wrong.
Name: Ellis Maxwell
Weight: 188 lbs.
Position Drafted: 1st Round | 9th Pick
Role: Nickel Cornerback
Key Attributes: 92 Speed | 78 Strength | 93 Agility | 97 Acceleration | 88 Jumping | 88 Man Coverage | 77 Zone Coverage | 85 Press
Ellis Maxwell is a stud physically but is lacking in game smarts and play recognition. He fits the Panthers stereotype of a cornerback with a big frame coming in at 6’2 and 188 lbs. He will be played at the #3/#4 cornerback position for at least the first season in Carolina in hopes of getting him some much needed experience at which point the Panthers feel he will be able to develop into one of the top cornerbacks in the league.
Name: Doron Crosby
Position: Outside Linebacker
Weight: 248 lbs.
Position Drafted: 2nd Round | 7th Pick
Role: Starting Outside Linebacker
Key Attributes: 90 Speed | 81 Strength | 88 Agility | 91 Acceleration
Doron Crosby is a physical specimen at linebacker and should put up monster numbers at the position in the future. He is raw and the slow development trait will be tough to overcome but Panthers’ management has no doubts that he will become a star in the future.
Name: Darien Clark
Positon: Strong Safety
Weight: 191 lbs.
Position Drafted: 3rd Round | 7th Pick
Role: Starting Strong Safety
Key Attributes: 85 Speed | 86 Agility | 92 Acceleration | 88 Jumping | 70 Awareness | 78 Man Coverage | 83 Zone Coverage | 78 Tackle | 79 Hit Power | 74 Catching
Darien Clark was a pick of need for the Carolina Panthers. They are currently fielding no decent starting safeties and went for a very big-bodied safety. Clark combines amazing size with very good athleticism and he is already very developed in awareness and coverage attributes. With his superstar development trait he could become a true star.
Name: Isreal Tillman
Position: Wide Receiver
Weight: 207 lbs.
Position Drafted: 4th Round | 7th Pick
Role: Receiving Depth
Key Attributes: 96 Speed | 60 Strength | 93 Acceleration | 77 Catching
Isreal Tillman is a very raw wide receiver but he brings great size and speed to the table. He will likely begin his career as a #3/#4 wide receiver but his combination of speed and Cam Newton’s arm strength could turn him into a viable deep ball threat in no time.
Name: Kirifi Hampton
Position: Right Tackle
Weight: 299 lbs.
Position Drafted: 5th Round | 7th Pick
Role: Offensive Line Depth
Key Attributes: 66 Speed | 85 Strength | 69 Agility | 76 Acceleration | 83 Run Block
Kirifi Hampton is a pure depth pick with starter potential in the far future if he is correctly developed. He has very good athleticism but lacks the blocking skills necessary to be a starter.
Name: Delmar Mauro
Weight: 188 lbs.
Position Drafted: 6th Round | 7th Pick
Role: Secondary Depth
Key Attributes: 92 Speed | 66 Strength | 90 Acceleration | 79 Man Coverage | 79 Zone Coverage
Delmar Mauro is a cornerback that is shorter than the normal Panthers requirement but brings a solid set of skills to the table. He will likely never amount to more than cornerback depth.
Name: Delency Branch
Position: Wide Receiver
Weight: 191 lbs.
Position Drafted: 7th Round | 7th Pick
Role: Kick Returner | Deep Threat
Key Attributes: 97 Speed | 94 Agility | 94 Acceleration | 88 Elusiveness | 87 Spin Move | 90 Juke Move | 86 Ball Carrier Vision | 81 Catching | 76 Route Running | 82 Kick Return
Delency Branch is the surprise pick of the draft for the Carolina Panthers. His athleticism and overall skillset is off the charts good. The only thing lacking in his game is his height but that should not be a big issue for him. The Superstar development trait is just icing on the cake for him. He could very well be a superstar in the future.
