Show Hard Knocks who YOU Drafted to become the Next Big Thing in Your Franchise!
HB Keith Taimani - Indiana
Taimani was the class of the HBs in this years draft and San Diego could not pass up on filling a need. With new owner AJ Cimahosky's promise to turn the city and the franchise around, Taimani has the team on his shoulders. His charisma and off the field antics will make him a model for jersey sales, but his on the field ability will make him a threat in the Chargers offense. Speed, Strength, and the ability to see the field develop make Taimani a lethal combination at the HB position.
DE Jude Olamfortone - Central Florida
Olamfortone was one of the rare 3-4 Defensive Lineman in this draft class, so San Diego pounced at the opportunity to snag him while he was still available. Hey Jude, will be a pass rushing nightmare, and has proven to be the best overall player in the Chargers class. He adds depth to a young defensive line. Not as fast as desired, but his ability to find the ball and bring down the carrier make him a versatile player.
MLB Larez Rowland - Howard
When people think college football, Howard is not what comes to mind. However, the Chargers took a bit of a reach to fill a need with one of the few 3-4 MLB's in the draft. Rowland will need to develop, but his skill set will give him plenty of field time to do so.
QB Louis Sarra - Texas A&M Kingsville
Texas A&M Kingsville QB Louis Sarra had his dream come true when drafted to the San Diego Chargers, as he becomes the 3rd QB on the roster, and a possible successor to Philip Rivers in the near future. His accuracy in the medium pass game needs quick work, but HC Andy Reid has plenty of QB Development experience that should help him get there.
DT Jameel Gordenave - Wisconsin
Another grab him while he is available, Gordenave was a rare 3-4 NT in the draft. He is a player that is good across the board, but not great at anything specific. Time will certainly tell if Gordenave is ready for the NFL's best.
MLB Bryce Romo - UTSA
UTSA Bryce Romo is a highlight pick for the Chargers. Growing up in a family with strong football gene's, Romo will be a focal point of the developmental process in San Diego. Here is to hoping he can throw the football like his Uncle.
SS Sheroid "Steroid" Chow - Saginaw Valley
Steroid Chow as he is known across the game of football was the final pick for the SD Chargers. Saginaw Valleys finest Safety in years, Chow will sit behind a pair of elite Safeties and develop quickly. No injections necessary.
No PSU guys wtf
This isnt a gawk and mock what cimmy picks thread.
Every one else is also allowed to follow suit and post their rookies...
Plus PSU didnt field any talent
Pick 1.11 - Veneton McElroy #25 UTSA| 6'0" 191
81 OVR - 94 spd -86 acc - 73 tak - 83 mcv – 75 zcv - 74-fmv - 76 awr - 87 prc - 76 Pur
Draft Grade B+ really wanted percy, the other CB but was looking around my board when my pick came up so had to rush the pick. I would have taken a few CBs that were avail but if i had to pick Percy was the one i wanted. Veneton Has good speed and technique but might not be quick enough for CB. He still was a good pick as he can fill another need. He might be moved to safety in a few years when Mike Mitchell moves on. His 87 play recognition and 83 cth and his 94 spd with decent tackle and strength might make an impact.
Pick 2.11 - OLB Jordan Heidt #54 Rhode Island| 6'3" 235
74 OVR- 90 spd -87 acc - 84 tak - 64 pow – 72 BSH - 76-pmv - 76 awr - 76 prc - 85 Pur
Draft Grade B+ - Might be the best pick in this draft for the Steelers. Thought one of the MLBs would fall to 11. When they didnt I went CB. So this was a need to handle the AFC North ground game. Has great speed and came in with lvl 2 consistency, Big hitter, swim move and clutch already plays ball aggressive and has a high motor.
Pick 4.11 - LG Nico Lindsay #74 Wyoming| 6'6" 327
74 OVR - 88 str -70 acc - 70 agi - 57 pbk – 79 rbk - 68 IBL - 78 awr -
Draft Grade C+ Getting a big mauling 88 strength guard with good footwork in the 4th rd is a positive. Lindsay has potential and will need a few years to develop
Pick 5.11 - RE Nolan Pound #96 St Mary's| 6'4" 272
65 OVR - 82 spd -64 acc - 70 tak - 84 pow – 82 BSH - 71-fmv - 70 awr - 61 prc - 73 Pur
Draft Grade C- late round depth. Is a big hitter and has some skills to build on. Pound knows he will have to work hard to see the field as he most likely would be pushed for that roster spot going forward.
Vikings 2014 Draft Class
1st Round #3 Overall
MLB Blaine Nealy
Nealy comes into the Vikings Organization with extreme speed for a Linebacker, and has a knack for playing the 4-3 defense. His coverage skills are also on the high end for such a young guy. Superstar in the making that will play a little inside and outside this season.
1st Round #10 Overall
WR Glenn Fields
Glenn Fields will take the place of Greg Jennings this year. He is 6'6" and can really come down with the ball in traffic. He knows how to run any route and should be a force on the outside
HB Kelsham Little
Little's last name does not imply his size. He is 6'4 237lbs and can run over people. Kelsham is an exceptional pass catching Halfback that will compete for a starting job by season's end as he will have more seasoning.
1st Round #19 Pick
WR Roderick Farrow
Who: A 6'1 211 pound WR from University of Texas (Hook'em).
Why Should You Care: Although he does not possess the break away speed most big time receivers have in the NFL he has sufficient speed to make plays. Tack this along with crisp route running with a knack to make the catch over the middle while taking the vicious hit from a MLB or a Safety. He also has the talent to make some pretty amazing catches, except some sort of #SCTop10Nominee type plays in the future.
3rd Round #18 Pick
RG Hansen Shuping
Who: A 6'5 334 pound RG from Penn State (PoSU) (Cimmy24 )
Why Should You Care: He possesses good speed for a Guard and could be a beneficial feat for a pulling guard. He is an old fashion run first offensive linemen who enjoys blocking down field and making best block possible. Also, he may have the best hands and best route running I've seen from a linemen in a while and he may be making some spectacular catches someday.
3rd Round #19 Pick
FS Dontravious Nutall
Who: A 6'2 211 pound FS from the University of Florida (shoutout diddy)
Why Should You Care: Well for beginners his last name is Nutall, like Nut-all. Other than that his attributes are very rough in the sense that he carries no raw speed and slightly afraid to make contact. But he can play a stellar zone coverage, until he gets beat deep due to speed.
