I've done about a dozen of these now and the one thing that stands out to me, a person who is not familiar with most of these guys, is that there is not much there at 21. It looks like Mosley or Pryor are the two choices at 21. Trading down almost always cost a chance at Pryor (most had the Eagles taking him at 22 if I passed or traded out of 21)

I don't really understand their grading though. I pick the top value who also happens to be a position of need (according to them) and get a c+ for the pick.

Maybe for the fun of it I'll try to sabotage the Bears draft.

Anthony Barr is never there as the Cardinals always scoop him up at #20. I've gotten Nix and Ebron at 21. Traded back a few spots once and Nix was still there. Trading further back towards the end of the first and Hageman is usually sitting there.

The grading is a little wonky to say the least. Another thing that seems to factor into the grading is expected day of being picked. Pick a Day 3 guy in the 3rd and it's reaching but get a Day 2 guy in the 4th and it's value. Plus there's the fact that say a college OLB* may not cut it in GBs system but it's a "need" according to the site (as you pointed out).

*As discussed here before, not many teams in college run the 3-4 and OLBs from those that do tend to be a bit small for the NFL.

Edit: Best score I've been able to muster is 4575 with B for drafting ability and A- for player quality.

Not only am I STRONGLY against the idea of trading to a worse pick, but many of the players on the lists and many of the positions are not even close to what we need.

OK, even though I don't like the premise of this game, I got bored and gave it a try. I think the trading is unrealistically over-valued, both incoming and outgoing. I refused to trade down, and I could never make an offer good enough to be accepted to trade up - oh well. This is what I got:

Round 1 Pick 21: Calvin Pryor, FS, Louisville (A)
Round 2 Pick 21: Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin (B)
Round 3 Pick 21: Dion Bailey, FS, Southern California (C)
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Christian Jones, ILB, Florida State (C+)
Round 4 Pick 21: Ahmad Dixon, SS, Baylor (B)
Round 5 Pick 21: Donald Hawkins, OT, Texas (E)
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): Michael Sam, DE, Missouri (B+)
Round 6 Pick 21: Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama (A)
Round 7 Pick 21: Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson (C)

As I have said, it's smart to double up or even more on positions of need. And yes, I know about Sam, in case anybody is wondering - he was a bargain in the late 5th round.

I forgot to even check what score they gave me.

First time through. Tried to have some fun trading around. Definitely didn't do enough to shore up the safety position. Going through this exercise, I feel like Free Safety is a bit lacking this year.
