    First Round

    TE Eric Ebron - 6'4'' 235 - North Carolina
    79 OVR, 83 SPD, 88 ACC, 82 CIT, 76 RLS
    An immediate fill for FA departed Dennis Pitta and after Landon Collins went #2 to the Atlanta Falcons, Seattle decided to take the TE and will be an instant impact on offense.
    WR Kyle Prater - 6'5'' 215 - Northwestern
    70 OVR, 77 CTH, 87 CIT, 75 SPC, 64 RLS, 84 SPD, 90 ACC
    After failing to make a trade with the Vikings in acquiring Cordarrelle Patterson, Seahawks wanted another wideout that could make a difference and they believe Prater is that player. He may very will top the depth chart pushing Percy to #3 while Stevie Johnson stays at #2.

    Second Round


    SS Sam Carter - 6'1'' 220 - TCU

    70 OVR, 66 TAK, 80 POW, 88 SPD, 90 ACC
    After missing on Collins, Seahawks wanted some quality depth and Carter will provide that and will take over Chancellor probably next year.

    Third Round
    LT Cameron Erving - 6'6'' 309 - Florida State
    70 OVR, 74 PBK, 66 RBK, 68 IBP
    The last of the "good" OL in the class for the year in the.

    Fourth Round

    WR Dont'e Moncrief -6'3'' 216 - Ole Miss
    68 OVR, 74 CTH, 74 CIT, 59 SPC, 64 RLS, 89 SPD, 92 ACC
    Name recognition pick but a below average madden player, made the roster.

    Fifth through Seventh Round

    RE Anthony Chickillo - Miami
    CB Nick Waisome - Florida State

    Both players didn't make the roster, cut.

    RB DUKE JOHNSON - 5'10", 200LBS - THE "U"
    68 OVR, 96 SPD, 90 AGI, 97 ACC, 88 ELU, 96 CAR

    ---With no real subjective #1 guy on their draft board, we took the BPA. Duke gives us a speedster in the backfield, much like Mike Goodson is. And while Duke isn't the pass catcher that Goodson is out of the backfield, he can easily break a long run for a TD. He will serve as the #3 back for now until he learns the offense.

    CB JUSTIN COX - 6'3", 193LBS - MISSISSIPPI STATE
    71 OVR, 74 MCV, 80 ZCV, 67 PRS, 83 JMP, 93 SPD

    ---Again we took BPA here. Cox was rated high for us mostly because of his 6'3" frame. Add that to the 4.36 40 time he had at the combine and his draft stock rose from being a 3rd rounder to a 2nd round pick. Cox has plenty of time to develop.

    RE JOSH WATSON - 6'4", 285LBS - CLEMSON
    72 OVR, 76 PMV, 69 TAK, 77 POW, 83 STR

    ---We needed a backup DE here and we felt Watson could fit the bill. He's a bit on the smallish side in terms of how we want our DE's to be but he's just as strong as Sheldon Richardson, our stud DE. Watson though needs to learn the nuances of the game though and will be in developmental mode.

    MLB BRYCE HAGER - 6'1", 235LBS - BAYLOR
    65 OVR, 78 TAK, 81 POW, 83 SPD, 72 PUR

    ---We missed the boat on a lot of MLB's we wanted to draft throughout the process but Hager does have some 3-4 experience and he's pretty fast. He's a tackling machine and hits with power. Hager could see some time in the 3-4 lineup as the primary backup MLB.

    CB ADRIAN AMOS - 6'0", 205LBS - PENN STATE
    68 OVR, 73 MCV, 75 ZCV, 92 SPD

    ---Amos likely will be on the PS.

    WR KENNY BELL - 6'1", 185LBS - NEBRASKA
    60 OVR, 71 CTH, 68 RLS, 87 JMP, 90 SPD

    1st round 15th pick CB Ronald Darby 5'11 189 out of Florida State
    -Darby is a physical specimen. He has 96 speed, 92 AGl, and 96 acc. His already the fastest CB on the roster.
    -He still has work to do on his coverage skills but, he has already gotten better in his short time. He has 82 Man Cov and 81 zone coverage.
    -Darby is the 5th CB as of now but, he will move up quick. He should be the third CB by years end.

    1st round 27th pick WR Stefon Diggs 6'1 185 out of Maryland
    -Diggs is another speed burner that needs to develop other skills. He has 93spd, 94agi, and 98acc.
    -He needs to work on his receiving skills and route running but, he is already going to be a play maker in the Pats offense. He has 79cth, 76rte.
    -Stefon is the 3 reciever right not but. look for him to battle with Greg Childs for the 3rd WR spot.

    2nd round 15th pick RB James Wilder Jr 6'2 226 out of Florida State
    -James was brought in to be the back up RB behind Vereen but, expect him to get plenty of carries this year. He will be great in short yard situations too. Although he only has 87 speed he is very good at getting the tough yards. He should develop into a very nice power back.

    3rd round 15th pick TE Ben Koyack 6'5 253 out of Notre Dame
    Ben was more a need pick but, he could develop into a quality 2nd or 3rd TE for the Pats. He already has pretty good speed and catching he just needs to get better.

    4th round 15th pick C Reese Dismukes 6'3 293 out of Auburn
    -Reese has been a little of a disappointment so far. He has struggled with is run blocking but, since he is behind one of the best centers in the league he has time to get better.

    4th round 19th pick QB Cody Fajardo 6'2 225 out of Navada
    -The Patriots wanted a more mobile QB than they had and drafted Fajardo to be just that. He will be the 3rd string guy but, his passing skills were actually better then they thought. He as been more accurate in practice then the back up.

    5th round 15th pick SS Ibraheim Campbell 5'11 205 out of Northwestern
    -The Pats needed a back up SS and when they scouted Campbell they noticed that he was real good as hitting receivers coming over the middle. He struggled in coverage but, he was really good in run support. The Patriots like run support SS's so he is a good fit. his coverage has gotten better this preseason.

    6th round 15th pick RT Rob Havenstein 6'8 342 out of Wisconsin
    -We didn't know a lot about Robe other than his size and that he played at Wisconsin. We needed depth at tackle and he seemed to be a good developmental pick. He as been better at pass blocking then we thought and worse in run blocking. At his size he shouldn't have a trouble getting better at run blocking as the year goes on.

    7th round 15th pick LT Quinterrius Eatman 6'6 301 out of USF
    -This was a pick made by one of our interns. Not much was known about Eatman except that he has a great last name for a big offensive lineman. He has been a plesant surprise and will work good as a developmental depth player.

    Overview: We didn't need any world changers in this draft. We were able to add some much needed speed to some skill positions. We mostly just needed some backups that could develop over the season.

    Saints

    Our GM suffered a brain injury just before the draft an didn't tell anyone.

    WR DeVonte Parker was the teams 1st round pick and he only made the roster because the cap hit to cut him was prohibitive.

    The teams 2nd and 3rd round picks were spent trading up in the 2nd round only to have a player autopicked (said player didn't make the team).

    New Orleans was without a 4th round pick after trading back into the 5th round of last years draft.

    The 5th and 6th round picks were spent trading up for a LBer that ended up not making the roster.

    Only 7th round pick HB Marcus Murphy turned out ok.

    Hahah nice draft. Looks like you should have just let the CPU ruin it for you. That way you have someone or something to blame other than yourself.

    This draft was rough - a lot of overalls in the 60's, even 1st and 2nd rounders.

    Titans had the #1 overall and took RB TJ Yeldon.

    Our 2nd round Pick was OLB.

    In the 3rd we went O-line.

    The 4th round was just to fill needs.

    5th Round pick was a CB to fill the roster spot left by Blidi.

    6th round was a MLB with outstanding physical set.

    7th round was OLB to fill a roster need.

    Nothing spectacular, except for Yeldon. All are on the roster and i feel they could be groomed into decent back-ups next year.

    Texans Draft:

    1st Rd, 4th Pick - Brett Hundley QB UCLA. 77 OVR, 92 THP, 80 SAC, 83 MAC, 78 DAC.
    Hundley is going to take the reins right away in Houston as they are looking to build their QB of the future. With good starting attributes, Hundley looks like he will be a good franchise QB in the years to come, but he has a lot of learning to do before he can become an elite player.

    1st Rd, 23rd Pick - Marquel Combs DT Kansas. 60 OVR, 92 STR, 76 BSH.
    Combs has the unfortunate position of being drafted rigt before a regime change and a defensive philosophy that goes from a 4-3 to a 3-4. Combs would easily be a good 4-3 DT in the coming years, he still needs to grow some in that area, but he will need a couple years before he can project into the starting lineup in e 3-4.

    2nd Rd, 4th Pick - Antwaun Woods DT USC. 65 OVR, 94 STR, 68 PMV, 77 BSH.
    Woods is another player who would project as a 4-3 DT rather than a NT or 3-4 DE and he is in the same boat as Combs. Woods is a talented player, maybe more-so than Combs, but he still has a year or two to develop before he becomes a starting caliber player.

    3rd Rd, 4th Pick - George Atkinson III RB Notre Dame. 66 OVR, 94 SPD, 92 AGI, 95 ACC, 92 CAR.
    Atkinson III is a good back and will get a good chance to learn from one of the better backs to play in the NFL over the last decade in Arian Foster. Atkinson will spell Foster when need be and return kicks this year. The Texans really like what they have here, the speed, agility,
    acceleration, and most importantly the good carrying ability make him a solid starter once Arian decides to leave or once he and the Texans part ways.

    4th Rd, 4th Pick - Ramik Wilson LOLB Georgia. 61 OVR, 68 BSH, MAN/ZN 50+, PMV 62.
    Wilson is very raw, he doesn't seem to be polished in any one area. He has good acceleration for a LB, but he has a long way to go before seeing the field on a regular basis. Right now, while the Texans are stuck with him, he is going to be strictly a special teamer.

    5th Rd, 4th Pick - Brent Benedict RG Va Tech. 65 OVR, 90 STR, 72 PBK, 63 RBK, 57 IMP.
    Benedict is a good late round pick, he has good strength and a decent starting base and could be a starter in a year or two, but ride now he will sit next to the cooling fans in Houston.

    6th Rd, 4th Pick - Quayshawn Nealy LOLB Ga Tech. 55 OVR, 79 SPD, 88 ACC.
    I am guessing that Nealy was picked the same way Montario Hardesty was drafted by Ruxin in season 2 of The League...purely on name alone. This guy has some speed, but looks like he may have never played football before in his life. Made the team though, so he has that going for him...

    7th Rd, 4th Pick - Hunter Joyer FB Florida. 71 OVR, 82 SPD, 86 STR, 67 RBK, 87 CAR.
    Joyer has a good starting base with his speed and strength combined with his carry, but he needs to learn from the starter McNeill who was brought in on a 1 year deal, then I suspect he can take over from there. Joyer needs to get better at catching the football, blocking in both areas of the game, and catching the football before he becomes a starter though.

    Overall, I would say this isn't a terrible draft for the CPU Texans, considering they were drafting for a 4-3 defense the DT's would have been good picks, but both LOLB's suck in coverage and can barely tackle my sister. The offensive players of Hundley, Atkinson III, and Joyer really saved this draft from being a bust as those players project well in the near future for this team if they continue to grow and get better.

    Leave Yeldon alone, just because he fumbles every time in key situations doesn't mean he stinks.... OK he stinks.

    New England Patriots 2015 Draft Class Post Season Update.

    1st round 15th pick CB Ronald Darby 5'11 189 out of Florida State
    -Darby came to the Pats as a talented but, raw rookie. He had some pretty good player ahead of him but, quickly moved up the depth chart. He played the Nickel back most of the year and even started a few game because McCourty got hurt.
    2015 Stats
    22 tackles 1 int 2 sacks
    Updated Ratings
    84 ovr, 89 mcv, 82 zcv, 81 prs, 96 spd, 96 acc

    1st round 27th pick WR Stefon Diggs 6'1 185 out of Maryland
    -Diggs was another player that came in with some great athletic ability but, raw skills. He also had some good receivers ahead of him. He worked his way into the #3 receiver and KO returner pretty quick. He was a little overshadowed with the acquisition of Greg Childs. He ended up having a solid year.
    2015 Stats
    26 catches 502 yards 3 td's
    Updated Ratings
    78 ovr, 82 cth, 88 rte, 93 spd, 98 acc, 94 agl

    2nd round 15th pick RB James Wilder Jr 6'2 226 out of Florida State
    -James was brought in to be the back up RB behind Vereen and do the short yardage dirty work. By the end of the year he was finally showing the ability the Pats thought they had. He was doing much more than just getting a short first down he was becoming a very solid power back.
    2015 Stats
    97 carries 404 yards 6 td's
    Updated Ratings
    73 ovr, 87 spd, 91 acc, 87 trk, 85 sfa,

    3rd round 15th pick TE Ben Koyack 6'5 253 out of Notre Dame
    -Ben didn't see the field much as a rookie but, has developed nicely. He is still 3rd in the depth chart but, he might see some more action this year.

    4th round 15th pick C Reese Dismukes 6'3 293 out of Auburn
    -Reese has gotten better and better. He is now a very solid back up center.

    4th round 19th pick QB Cody Fajardo 6'2 225 out of Navada
    -Cody had gotten much better as his passing accuracy. He played a little this past season in garbage time but, this year he could come in at times and run the option.

    5th round 15th pick SS Ibraheim Campbell 5'11 205 out of Northwestern
    -Campbell was pick just to fill a spot. He has gotten better but, he still won't see much more than special teams snaps.

    6th round 15th pick RT Rob Havenstein 6'8 342 out of Wisconsin
    -Rob came in very raw but, has gotten better and better every week. He is now a solid back up.

    7th round 15th pick LT Quinterrius Eatman 6'6 301 out of USF
    -The CPU made this pick but, you can't ask for more from a 7th round blind pick. Eatman is a quality back up.

    With the 3rd pick last year, the Falcons selected Landon Collins.

    Collins proved to be the absolute beast we thought he could be.

    He raised his overall 77 rating to a 90 in his rookie campaign.

    He finished the year with 80 tackles, 8 INT, 14 TFL, 2 Sacks, and a FF.

    His on field production helped win him Defensive Rookie of the Year honors and a trip to Hawaii in the Pro Bowl.

    He was 2nd n voting in Defensive player of the year behind Bobby Wagner.


    Who is this year's Landon Collins?
