FootClan! Wanted to get your thoughts on the Saturday (29 July 2017) mock draft Jason, Andy & Jay Griz did (link to episode below). I have 2 strategy questions, but would enjoy hearing any other reactions you had. A quick recap of their roster:
QB - Stafford
RB - David Johnson, Gurley, Woodhead, T-West
WR - Landry, Crabtree, Edelman, Moncrief, Maclin, Kelvin
TE - Gronky Kong
K & DEF - some guy & some team (they didn’t care)
Question 1 >> Do you have a target number of WRs & RBs when you enter a draft? How much do you stick to it? (The guys seemed to have a “best available” approach in this mock and (arguably) ended up with a bit of a lopsided squad with 6 WRs and only 4 RBs. )
Question 2 >> The guys understandably shrugged at the DEF & Kicker positions at the end of the draft. But… In a real draft, would you consider passing on Stafford when they did (12th of 14 rounds) and grab the best available kicker or defense? Why? Drafting at the turn, they had the opportunity to draft both the best available kicker andy defense. Knowing that 11 of 12 defenses still needed to be drafted and all 12 kickers, there were overwhelming odds that no more QBs would be drafted, so they still would’ve gotten Stafford with the last pick in the draft.
