Fanspeak On The Clock (Premium) Draft Simulator


First Run, Curious to see how players are slotting; this of course is done with no idea of what's to happen in Free Agency...

Three biggest needs I'm looking to address for the 2020 Saints at this point is WR-Z, CB2, and LB...


Initially tried trading back to get either Indianapolis' two (2) second round picks or Chicago's two (2) second round picks; simulator wouldn't budge...

After checking DraftTek's Trade Value Chart, it's not happening; but in the Real World someone may fall that either team covets...


Okay, so I start the simulator and tremendous value and need fall to me with our first round pick ...

Pick No. 24 (R1,P24) CB C.J. Henderson, Florida; Height: 6' 1"; Weight: 202 lbs.

When selecting a first round pick, I'm looking for a player that starts immediately and can offset his rookie mistakes with playmaking ability...

Henderson may need a little more coaching-up, but could challenge immediately for the NB if my other CJ takes over for departing FA Bell...



We need WRs and somehow an absolute burner falls through the second round, so I pull a Payton to start the third round...

TRADE PARTNER: Cincinnati Bengals receive a Future Round 2 Pick and send Pick No. 65 (R3, P1)

Pick No. 65 (R3, P1) WR Jalen Reagor, TCU; ; Height: 5' 11"; Weight: 195 lbs.

Okay, he's not falling, but if he did, this is huge as he'd be a R3 (R2) pick that plays right away tearing the tops off of defenses as Ginn was meant to do; Mike Thomas gives him new sneakers each week in gratitude...

Reagor also offers great YAC ability as well...



Now comes to our third round pick and there's a terrific match for a guard sitting there...

Pick No. 88 (R3, P24) RG Ben Bredeson, Michigan; ; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 325 lbs.

He's got NFL-ready size, strength; plus-lateral movement; can get to the next level fast; and played against NFL prospects, and should be able to transition to start guard in his first season...



Okay, so now we get to the Day 3 picks, this is where I do believe in moving up to get to that pool of 8-10 prospect should've gone on Day 2. This is where I pull a good Payton...

TRADE PARTNER: Washington Redskins receive a Future Round 4 Pick and Pick No. 127 (R4, P24) and send me Pick No. 105 (R4, P2)

Pick No. 105 (R4, P2) LB Evan Weaver, Cal; Height: 6' 3"; Weight: 235 lbs.

Okay, this gives me a tremendous athlete who can pair, run with DeMario, can get inside scouting via Cam Jordan's alma mater buddies; now I can run more 3-LBers sets minimizing the match-up liability...



Because I've let Peat go in Free Agency and needing a reserve offensive tackle, I go back to the Wisconsin well, and I have Ramczyk do what Cam did and I get me another Wisconsin Milk Farmer to play Tackle...

Pick No. 169 (R5, P23) OT Cole Van Lanen, Wisconsin; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 312 lbs.

In truth, he should've stayed, but I'm glad to start grooming him, even if he'd be better as a Right Tackle, but he can absolutely maul right away, so I'm using him on jumbo packages his rookie year...



Okay so I sit tight to see what gems fall, and there's one that I'm particularly looking for and he does indeed fall into my lap...

Pick No. 203 (R6, P24) S Myles Dorn, UNC; Height: 6' 2"; Weight: 205 lbs.

This guy has prototypical size, experience playing single-high safety, has demonstrated advanced instincts and reads for a college player and gives me flexibility with my secondary...



Now this is a deep draft for Defensive Linemen, and even with the guys I have already, I see too much value sitting out there so I trade back into the draft in the last round...

TRADE PARTNER: Miami Dolphins receive a Future Round 6 Pick and send Pick No. 245 (R7, P31)

Pick No. 245 (R7, P31) DT McTelvin Agim, Arkansas; Height: 6' 3"; Weight: 300 lbs.

Truth is this was a toss up because there were other DLs I really liked here as well that I'd like not have to fight for in the UDFA rush:

DT Benito Jones, Ole Miss; Height: 6' 1"; Weight: 329 lbs
DT Davon Hamilton, Ohio St; Height: 6' 3"; Weight: 310 lbs
NT Ray Lima, Iowa St; Height: 6' 3"; Weight: 305 lbs
NT Mike Panasiuk, Mich St; Height: 6' 4"; Weight: 300 lbs


Well, that was fun, and interesting to see what many folks are thinking and the values that are being put on people...

Shoup is a great guy and he and his sister have developed this simulator; y'all should really check it out and the Premium Mode is inexpensively purchased via PayPal...

Have it on good authority that more knowledgable media types and even scouts are using this app to get a feel or concensus on players' values...
