    going 9 12 is pretty much a lock on 2 first round talents mate IMO

    Personally I'd go Hopkins/Fournette then JJ/Cook

    Someone's always going to grab the QBs far too early. Rodgers will go early, and then that will start the avalanche of Watson, Brady, Wilson. To be honest- not sure on the hype around those guys though. They each have a few drawbacks this year - even the GOAT.

    Best bet is to mock with some of them and really throw the cat amongst the pigeons.

    So this could just be me watching Hard Knocks again, but whats everyones thoughts on Browns Defence this year?

    Garrett looks to be killing it already this year. A host of young quality players and they held the eagles scoreless.

    I imagine if the storm played no one the panfers would have struggled to make 24 points. So embarrassing! Unfortunately Gus will be a Cunt about a win against a third rate storm team as of his team was the best that ever lived. But really this team lost to a second string bulldogs team in the trials. Fuck I’d hate to be a pathetic panfers fan

    Got enough pieces added to offense so the D wont't always be on the field this year but I can't see much above 6 wins which will be a stretch

    Todd much better running just an offence and being bit part, he doesn't have the HC mentaility I don't think, not that Jackson does over him

    Man I’d be worried if I took Watson as one of the first 4 QBs. He will throw a lot of ints this year, won’t keep that td pace up and after the injury I can’t see him running it that much.

    I still have no idea who I’ll take at pick 3, got a hold out 2 guys coming of injuries and Elliot going to face a lot of stacked boxes considering that receiving group

    Peyton retired years ago bro, no point picking him.

    Not sure if its been posted (although saw it being discussed) but Donald has signed a six year $135M extension with the Rams.

    Agree with previous poster as well - Rams are all in on this year!

    Guys I haven't been following any NFL this pre-season (too busy with NRL). Are there any injuries to be aware of leading into the draft tomorrow?

    Cheers

    By the way, Im still keen for someone from L2 to draft for me if you have the time. I'm about to go in a set a list but if anyone wants to draft then just PM me.

    Can't think of any major ones. Barkley has been troubled by a hammy, I read some stuff that every single player that has hamstring issues in pre-season last year suffered a reoccurrence during the season. Food for thought there.

    Cheers!

    And just to confirm is our roster 15 players? i.e 6 bench spots? Just wondering how deep I need to set my rankings.

    i take it that you've missed the cut so far?

    Should be some options after this weekend. There hasn't been a lot of chat from a number of players so far, so there may be a few that drop out post draft today and tomm.

    Alternatively, I'd be more than happy running a second team and getting a separate (presumably unofficial) 3rd league up and running - I suspect a few others would do the same.

      Current date/time is Wed Nov 21, 2018 10:03 pm
