New Draft SIM in Town... PFN

Recommended Posts

Someone posted a result of a draft they did in the First-Pick thread, but not a link. I happened across the site today. Here it is:

https://www.profootballnetwork.com/mock-draft-simulator/

It's free... it's trades are rational... it is not as trade crazy as First-Pick. The CPU does trade with itself, but does so sparingly.

It does appear that you have to initiate all trades in which you are involved... up or down... at least I haven't received any offers yet. However, you do get more than one shot at making a deal.

Best of all PFN's Player rankings seem more realistic than First-Pick's, which seem to have gone from bad to worse as we get closer to the Draft. Both a couple Fanspeak's and The Draft Network's Big Boards seem even better yet, but if you want to trade then you have to pay.

At first PFN's sim may seem a little "clunky", but after playing  bit you learn to navigate it. Couple tips...

  • The center controls buttons, especially the "Pause" button, are handy. Let's you check on how close your next guy is getting.
  • Click on the picks made and you can scroll the list up and down.
  • Ditto for the player list.
  • Need to see who you've taken and/or your remaining picks? Click on you team's helmet.

Give it a shot... click the link and then scroll down thru the instructions to another link to the actual sim.

Thomas and Baun as the first two picks for the Browns would make me have to consult a doctor after four hours.

Andrew Thomas - OT Georgia
 - Fell to me

67.
Jeremy Chinn - S Southern Illinois

- hello hybrid

97. Adam Trautman - TE Dayton - a blocking TE in a 3-man rotation in Stef's Offense is not a luxury
149.
Netane Muti - G Fresno State

- stay healthy, my friend... and make me proud.

 
174.
Khalil Davis - DT Nebraska
- More inside presser.
 
187.
Benito Jones - DT Ole Miss
- and even more inside pressure? This late, who cares...
 
244.
Austin Mack - WR Ohio St. - flyer on a Buckeye with possibilities.

So I'll echo Dutch here, to an extent.  But if this were to happen, I would be at full candy corn.

Apparently such a believer you traded picks for Murray and took Chinn fairly high.

I call this one my Ohio State Draft...

Kicked it off with a trade down from 10 (targeting Jones) followed by a trade down from 41.

Only pick I'm not delighted by is Jackson at 115, but he was BPA and I'd missed my other, higher value OGs. Good player, but not convinced he's a ZBS kinda guy.

Dye is the most unrealistic pick...  I can't see him falling to round 5... or 4 for that matter.
