How on earth is Derwin James at 14 a B grade??? Their rating system is mentally challenged sometimes! I hope against hope James is there when the Packers are on the board. I really believe he is going to be a game changer. Jmo...
I think they wanted me to accept a trade back into the 20's, but I'll take Derwin James at 14, please and thank you.

Their grades are screwy sometimes, and they've changed. Early on they were giving B grades or worse for drafting Mike White or Kyle Lauletta - at all. Even in the 7th. Now they have both pegged, I believe, as 2nd round value.

14: R1P14 OT CONNOR WILLIAMS TEXAS
45: R2P13 S JESSIE BATES WAKE FOREST
76: R3P12 EDGE JOSH SWEAT FLORIDA STATE
101: R4P1 TE MARK ANDREWS OKLAHOMA
133: R4P33 CB CHRISTIAN CAMPBELL PENN STATE
138: R5P1 DL NATHAN SHEPHERD FORT HAYS STATE
172: R5P35 RB BO SCARBROUGH ALABAMA

239: R7P21 WR DAURICE FOUNTAIN NORTHERN IOWA

The program had QB BAKER MAYFIELD, QB SAM DARNOLD, QB JOSH ALLEN, BRADLEY CHUBB, QUENTON NELSON, SAQUON BARKLEY, MINKAH FITZPATRICK, TREMAINE EDMUNDS, ROQUAN SMITH, DERWIN JAMES, VITA VEA, JOSH ROSEN, DENZEL WARD all taken before #14. The rest just fell as I selected best player available until mid day three then it hybrid with needs.

If this scenario plays out, with those 13 off the board, would you rather trade down? I'm not sure Williams even would start for us if Spriggs comes back healthy. Maybe a little trade down with a team that is desperate for OT, then we could get Davenport, Landry or a CB?

Disagree completely on Spriggs, far as I'm concerned he's fighting for a job this spring/summer and is just as likely gone as not. Can't count on him at all.

But I do agree on the pick - I wouldn't take Williams there. I'd sooner take the G Hernandez if going OL, or McGlinchey who seems a natural RT. Personally I'd sit tight and take Landry at 14 and be happy.

I noticed that too. I guess the game is like real life sometimes. You think guys will be available all over the place and then the real draft takes place and everybody is stunned at where guys are taken.

For example, who would have guessed Khyri Thornton was so good, he’d go in the third round? Oh, wait....never mind!!

:D

Wow. I guess this would actually be beneficial if Darnold fell to 14 because we'd probably find a trade partner pretty easily. I took him just to see how things unfold. Kind of liked the end result. So if, it is a big IF, one of the three QBs (Darnold, Rosen or Allen) would fall......would you take them?

14: R1P14 QB SAM DARNOLD USC
45: R2P13 TE DALLAS GOEDERT SOUTH DAKOTA STATE
76: R3P12 CB DONTE JACKSON LSU
101: R4P1 EDGE DUKE EJIOFOR WAKE FOREST
133: R4P33 WR DAESEAN HAMILTON PENN STATE
138: R5P1 EDGE DORANCE ARMSTRONG JR. KANSAS
172: R5P35 LB JACK CICHY WISCONSIN
174: R5P37 OT BRANDON PARKER NORTH CAROLINA A&T
186: R6P12 CB NICK NELSON WISCONSIN
207: R6P33 DL KENTAVIUS STREET NORTH CAROLINA STATE
232: R7P14 OT BRETT TOTH ARMY
239: R7P21 RB PHILLIP LINDSAY COLORADO

Yes...best guy on the board. If you don't and he becomes a solid starting QB even if it's somewhere else you look dumb.

Yep...this. A LOT of teams are still kicking themselves for not taking Aaron Rodgers!

Before last year I would have said, 'Absolutely not!' But after watching Hundley last year, I think I would have to pull the trigger and take the QB. One injury ruined the Packers entire season!
