**Round One-Three Commentary**

Recommended Posts

I wasn't being critical, per se. Just a friendly reminder that we need to move at a faster pace if at all possible. :cheers:

I was kinda surprised to see Mixon at the turn, I thought he might be on the board at my second. But I do think he's a good rebound candidate, with Burrow coming back, and additions to the receiving corps and the offensive line.

I have access here at work but am having trouble getting access on my phone.  It's freezes on "checking email."   I'm trying to get a password reminder to my email.

It's upsetting when a corner is turned and we sit.

Todays struggle has been brought to you by Matts.  Congrats Matts!  

Can you stop complaining? I made my pick 11 an hour after pick 10, I was driving home and pick was made on my ride home...

For the people who complain about speed of draft. Please understand people work and do other things during the day.  On average each pick took an hour.  The complaining already is too early.

 

i can see if it was 3 plus hours, but if there is a minimum time for each pick we should put it out there.

 

love doing this draft, we could really do without the whining of a reasonable pace.

I'm here...5 min please

Edit: I know it's early for JK, but this draft position absolutely sucks. I'm forced to reach a bit or always play from behind.

Been reading where in BB it’s best to have an early TE. I am usually a “take a TE first in round 10”, so, I’ll try it this way this year!

Kittle should have a bounce back year regardless of who is throwing him the ball. One of the top 3 TEs. 


It’s a gamble on my part…….but certainly not a reach.

I like Kittle especially if Lance starts, he will be a solid safety blanket for the rookie.

Thanks Matt. I usually don’t travel down this road.

I didn’t complain. As moderator, I just stated that we needed to pick up the pace a little. Didn’t blame anyone and I certainly wasn’t whining. Remote is Remote. Awesome dude. A tad bit impatient, though. :lol:

Same. I had him pegged for my 2.7

We shouldn’t base our draft on BB though. It skews the results a little.

A little, maybe, but not nearly enough to hurt the value of the mock.

Having a kicker get injured (or released) preseason can severely hurt your chance of winning the league, but you don't see anyone drafting a second kicker. At most, you'll have a slight edge given to inconsistent players when you're decided between 2 or 3 guys. Something you could see in a real draft, depending on the drafter's philosophy.

Unfortunately it’s impossible. Once you know there’s a format and a title we all want to win, it’s human nature to make some decisions based on that info. 
 

I agree with Vikes, I don’t think it hurts the value of the mock though

It was hard choosing between Ridley and Diggs and another WR for me. RB value has dried up a bit for now from my perspective

It’s not a huge deal but there are always a few picks that get made based on it.

Ray is likely fixin to hop on his sail boat and leave us all hanging like he normally does.  He's lucky he's so dead sexy!

Sailing is tonight my man.....hopefully the weather holds out.

I am a little distracted, my daughter received an appointment to the Naval Academy and we have rather long list of things to do between now and I-day on the 30th so every day is a frenzy now

Just a tad. 😎 I'm officially old and crotchety.  The way I look at it is this isn't a casual commitment.  There are 13 busy individuals, all with a life, doing this task for FFToday.  When 4 hours (check out the time stamps) are wasted in the afternoon of the first day of the draft, and on a turn, where busy people are waiting to make their selection so they can relax........it's just sad.  If the truth hurts then I'm sorry.  It's not personal, just factual.  Lets do better today.

I am hoping this entire pandemic thing really highlights the corruption that our university system uses to extort money from families.....and not suitably educate our kids.....

Just another fraud perpetuated on the American people.  And honestly, look at the chaff these universities are putting out, the despicable things they think and believe!

Even the military is now doing this pronoun bullsh!t.  Sickening.

 

But back to football.....I think that Tyreek Hill pick was something of a reach and I think we all deserve and explanation!

Kelce and Dobbins look fine to me.  Two great offenses and you have two key cogs to them.

The problem is that yesterdays pace wasn't reasonable at all, and we have been asked to do better.

A real toss up.  My brain says take Ridley while my gut said look at what Diggs did with Josh last year.  We will leave you a back or two to choose from.

What is a reasonable draft? Maybe we add a timer or time limitation into the rules to better set expectations?

Straight from the rules post:  The mock will begin at 8:00 AM CST, 6/8 and from past experience should take roughly 1-2 weeks to complete. Primary mocking time will be between 8:00 AM CST - 5:00 PM CST. You are certainly welcome to make picks after that time if you want, but official closing time each day will be 5:00 PM CST. If you know you won't be able to access the Mock board for any 2 hour period during official mocking time, please send a list of players to choose from to Mike FFToday or Fumble and one of us will make the pick on your behalf.

I read it yesterday and didn’t remember seeing the 2 hour part.  I will try to get my picks in within that time frame.

We just ran into some bad timing yesterday of people logging off for an hour or so while on deck, and the OTC pick showing up and being made 5 minutes into that hour.

Not a big deal, but hopefully we can get a run of picks in with people online at the same time.

So that was added to this year’s rules?

 

it wasn’t in last years

 

The mock will begin at 8:00 AM CST, 6/8 and from past experience should take roughly 1-2 weeks to complete. Primary mocking time will be between 8:00 AM CST - 5:00 PM CST. You are certainly welcome to make picks after that time if you want, but official closing time each day will be 5:00 PM CST.
