Trade partner also backed out of trading Kittle cuz he got another offer he liked better lol
Here are my results of the rookie draft. I traded the 1.06 for the 1.10 and 2.02. I also traded Drew Lock and my 2.11 for Teddy Bridgewater, the 2.08, and the 3.05. Here are the picks I made:
1.10 - Jalen Reagor
2.02 - Denzel Mims
2.08 - Chase Claypool
3.05 - Joshua Kelley
3.08 - Donovan Peoples-Jones
3.12 - James Robinson
4.01 - Thaddeus Moss
4.03 - K.J. Hamler
I was pretty happy with how I drafted. The RBs went like crazy and there were never any available I liked at my picks and nobody would trade them and I couldn’t trade up.
I was happy to get Reagor at 1.10. It was a strange draft. The first 6 picks were all RBs with the last one being Vaughn. Jeudy was selected right before me at 1.09. I was planning on getting Ruggs cuz he was projected to be the best available in my research. I’m not high on Ruggs and really didn’t want to draft him so I’m glad I got Reagor.
I was so glad to see Mims at 2.02. He is one of my favorite prospects in this draft and I think he has a lot of potential even if he’s on the Jets.
I could’ve picked Tua at 2.08, but I like Claypool a lot and I figured it would be better to get depth at those positions more. And Claypool doesn’t have as much of an injury history.
Kelley I was happy to get at 3.05 cuz I have Ekeler and Kelley could turn out to be his handcuff.
DPJ athletically I thought was one of the more underrated WRs in the draft. I think I made a good value pick of him at 3.08 even tho the Browns offense is pretty loaded with weapons. He should get some work and he should grow in the future.
James Robinson at 3.12 was just a “I desperately need RB depth” pick. He was among the top available. I remembered researching him this past offseason and he seemed pretty good at Illinois State even tho they didn’t play anyone. He’s got a shot at playing time as an undrafted FA in Jacksonville with Fournette on the trade block and there’s not much depth behind him. Ryquell Armstead will most likely get a majority of the workload, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Robinson get some work. JR isn’t even guaranteed a roster spot tho so we will see how that goes.
Thaddeus Moss at 4.01 was just a flyer to see if he’d do anything. Washington has no other TEs I don’t think so he could get a chance at a good workload.
K.J. Hamler at 4.03 I thought was a good pick. He was drafted in the 2nd round of the NFL draft. Denver’s got tons of weapons know so who knows how much work Hamler gets, but I thought he was worth the pick here.
