    I know this site isn't often realistic when it comes to trades and player availability but this "no trade" draft I did would make mexpretty happy in the real world

    Round 1 Pick 23: Landry, Harold, OLB/DE, Boston College (A-)
    Round 3 Pick 23: Michel, Sony, RB, Georgia (A+)

    LOL come on guys! Ragnow in the 3rd? He'll be gone by the mid point of round 2 at the latest.

    You’re probably right but many players drop a round or even two with no apparent rationale. It’s less likely with round one or two prospects but.... hell - who knows?

    Staying current with media big board info has been first-pick’s Achilles heel since its inception. I would think there is an agorithm it runs by and at some point, they manually enter the rankings that the algorithm uses. Their trade offers have gotten better this year - but even they still need work. They just need to update the site rankings more often.

    It’s fun to run it as Cleveland this year. What a draft in front of that team.

    But have you ever noticed, every year, if you take all of the guys who the media claims will be a first round draft pick, there would be between 40-45 guys. But only 32 guys are actually picked there. Ragnow won't drop that much.....but someone will. And someone will claim whoever drafted that guy......to be a genius.
