Sounds great. For me with the 7th rounders/UDFA's I just give you full control on what you want to do. Its more of GMs choice type of picks imo.

Well hopefully I didn't do a terrible job as GM for FFMD II. I jumped the gun on the Beason deal, but thought we hit a homerun in the draft.

Was working on the depth chart yesterday, funny that not one of our picks is slotted to start, but the bulk of our picks has the potential to have several starters for next season.

FFMD II has added a final piece at the end.

Posted: Fri Apr 19, 2013 12:50 pm Post subject: FFMD 13 (Part II): Final Product Thread
With FFMD II wrapping up, I wanted to give the GMs of every team a chance to do the following:

1. Show his draft & trades.
2. Write up justifications based on the whole put together.
3. Put together a final lineup/depth chart.

I'll unlock this thread after the UDFA period is over. GMs ONLY are allowed to post in this thread. Please save all discussion for the General Discussion Thread

GMs should be discussing what to post in their respective war rooms.

Credit to CriminalMind for the idea...


I think for the most part we're on the same page with the players roles that we selected in the draft or by trade. I'll write something up just to ensure though. Is there anything else you'd like me to include in what I'm calling a GM press conference to the masses.

I know we weren't on the same page with our second round pick, so we could discuss that, just whatever really.

So give me as much feedback as you guys can, much appreciated.

Alright guys, roster has been updated. If there are any changes you would like for me to adjust let me know.

Thanks for the help on this, was a little nervous thinking I'd be doing it alone.

Grades will be handed out tomorrow prior to the start of the draft, I'll post those results when they come out.

Time zone issues killed me in the UDFA so I was only able to bring in one dude. Sorry about that.

Again thanks was a lot of fun.

This. You did a good job and we did a good job in general. Good draft.

Thanks for the pat on the back, but in the end we didn't win.

I'd like to start off by thanking everyone for participating in FFMD II. It was my first time running a FFMD and a good learning experience. And now to get to the winners.

Congrats to the winners of FFMD II the St. Louis Rams!

It was a tough decision and obviously the Rams had an advantage going in with the extra picks. But what they did with the picks to set themselves up for success now and next year, is why I picked them. I loved what the Vikings, Broncos, 49ers, Eagles, Giants, Dolphins and other teams did as well. You guys didn't make it an easy decision. Some other teams like the Jets and Jags really went for it and if they hit could set themselves up for a lot of success.

The Rams are entering what I consider a make or break year for Sam Bradford. His contract is due for an extension but the teams needs to figure out if he truly is the 'Franchise' QB they drafted him to be. The additions of Tavon Austin and Markus Wheaton give the Rams instant play making ability on offense if Quick doesn't develop as they expect. It's a good way to hedge their bets.

The two biggest issues after that was O-Line and Safety play. Both got addressed as well with Barrett Jones and Jonathan Cyprien. Their first four picks will provide an instant impact to the team this year.

The Rams also made one of the best decisions in the draft to trade down with the Lions and pick up a 2014 1st round draft pick. Next years draft is expected to have more top level talent in the first round and the Rams are poised again to be setup for success in the draft.

What they did during the UDFA process is intriguing as well. Marc Anthony, Jeff Baca and Duron Carter have the talent to potentially make the 53 man roster.


Currently some positive debate going on in the discussion thread if anyone would like to participate.

Thanks again guys.

My philosophy:

Heading into the mock, we wanted to make improvements to our pass rush, rush defense, offensive line depth and secondary. Prior to last season, the Giants pass rush was second to none, last season it struggled. Justin Tuck got a lot of that blame and rightfully so being the leader of the defense. Nagging injuries slowed him down, but the largest issue wasn’t the injuries or perceived declining play from Justin Tuck, it was the absence of Chris Canty. Canty brought a presence to the interior that made it possible for single coverage on the edge. Prior to us stepping in the Giants had already been hard at work in the free agency in signing Cullen Jenkins and Mike Patterson, both veterans that have produced at high levels within their careers. Drafting Sheldon Richardson gives the Giants a young talented interior pass rusher, whom we expect to compete for the starting job, yet we feel that we have the depth at defensive tackle that we can bring Sheldon in on situational down and distance plays and utilize his pass rushing abilities allowing him to grow within the system. Another thing we did is something rumored by the Giants is moving Mathias Kiwanuka back to defensive end. With the departure of Osi, and the way the draft unraveled, our best option at adding depth to the defensive end position was already on our roster.

The next order of business was addressing the middle linebacker position. The Giants bringing in Dan Conner should tell you that the Giants front office doesn’t value the position as much as you or I might. But can you really disagree with Jerry’s philosophy of having outstanding front four and a solid secondary with an average linebacker core? I looked over several of the linebackers in this draft and came to the conclusion that, the value wasn’t there at 19 and we disliked the idea of having to reach for a player of need at any point in the draft. So we packaged a deal to the Panthers for Jon Beason, who had just come off his second consecutive IR season. Personally, I think Jon is one of the best middle linebackers playing in the league. He’s 28 years old and prior to the injuries was putting up pro bowl numbers every season. We gave up a lot to get him as other teams were interested in his services as well, but I also feel the payoff is off the charts, providing he can stay on the field. Definitely a risk reward trade that hopefully favors us at the end of the year.

With Mathias moving back to end, we also felt it was necessary to bring in another linebacker via the draft. Jenkins is a versatile linebacker with good range and a high motor. He’s a solid in coverage, has the speed and athleticism to cover tight ends and backs. Good burst of speed to blitz the passer. I think his speed and side line to side line ability is an upgrade over Kiwanunka’s size and strength, making Jenkins the better linebacker against the read option.

In keeping with the defense, we felt that our secondary needed a boost; the Giants had already brought in Aaron Ross from the FA to deepen our cornerback core. We signed safeties Robert Lester and Rontez Miles. The depth at safety wasn’t deep at all and with Rolle carrying such a large salary of 7 million these draftees could potentially be his replacement next season. Cornerback Johnny Adams was also drafted, very sound zone coverage type that plays bigger than his size. He’ll need to get bigger to see significant playing time on any roster, but I really liked his prowess in the secondary. I think the NFL.com analysis on him says it best. “Wiry-tough corner who plays bigger than he measures. Long arms for his frame. Shows foot work at the line to stick with head fakes and hesitation moves. Creates contact to stay with his man down the sideline. Has excellent ball skills and concentration. Comes off his man to play the ball, snatching passes away from his frame, tracks the ball over his shoulder. Aware defender, comes off his man, or the first read in zone, to make plays. Also undercuts receivers on short passes to step in front. Transitions forward from pedal to corral receivers after the catch and avoid their blocks. Plays a lot of snaps in the slot, and is a regular Blitzer because he is a solid tackler and can pack a punch. Incredibly effective tackler in the run game. Seeks the ball carrier and looks to invite contact. Attacks the edge on plays coming his way and regularly sticks his nose between the tackles when uncovered. Gives effort, has a bit of a burst to make tackles. This wiry All-Big Ten zone corner owns the athleticism to stick with pro receivers and can make quarterbacks pay for poor throws.”
Shifting gears to the offense, the Giants lost a vital part of their offense last year after deciding to cut ties with the injury plagued back, Ahmad Bradshaw. He’ll be missed for sure, if not just for his love of the game. At the time of the mock the Giants had Wilson and Brown on the roster with some lower graded backs for depth. When the second round rolled around it was clear who are target player was going to be. Eddie Lacy brings a different type of back than Wilson’s style of play but we felt that it was a great merge of talents. Lacy has a great understanding of following the blockers and allowing the holes to develop. He has an explosive burst that launches him through deteriorating lanes and off to the races. Lacy is a first round talent drafted in the mid second round.

The Giants offensive line is aging with a couple working on one year deals, it was clear we needed to add some depth. Drafting David in the third round we believe gives us a potential starter next season at left guard as well as a player that could swing out to left tackle in a pinch. The other talent we brought in came from a trade. Byron Bell is a person I feel that could start right now for us at right tackle. He doesn’t flash you with quickness but he does a solid job of playing within his zone and doesn’t let much get by him. Has the overall strength to latch on and drive the defender up field to create rushing lanes.

I would of loved to had the time to bring in more than what I did in the UDFA but time constraints didn’t allow for it. We did however; bring in who I think is a great talent in the special teams department. Oklahoma State is one of the few states that actually provide full rides scholarships to kickers and punters. Quinn Sharp is someone IMO that could start in this league immediately at punter or kicker. Giants currently have 3 kickers on the roster and I’m not a fan of any of them.

Roster:

QB Eli Manning // David Carr // Curtis Painter
RB David Wilson // Eddy Lacy // Andre Brown // Da'Rel Scott // Ryan Torain
FB Henry Hynoski
TE Brandon Myers // Adrien Robinson // Bear Pascoe // Larry Donnell
WR Hakeem Nicks // Louis Murphy // Brandon Collins

SS Stevie Brown // Ryan Mundy // Tyler Sash // David Caldwell
K Josh Brown // Quinn Sharp // David Buehler // Jake Rogers
P Steve Weatherford // Quinn Sharp
LS Zak DeOssie
Kick Return: David Wilson // Johnny Adams
Punt Return: Rontez Miles



Was thinking about the Giants situation and it made me think of this mock draft we did. Started looking at the picks and trades, we actually did pretty solid. Beason...say what?!!! Byron Bell would be nice right now with our oline issues. Not to mention the rookie we picked in the draft, DAVID BAKHTIARI. A tail back, Eddie Lacy and Dt Richardson, solid pick ups. Deeper in the draft Lester looks promising. As does Jenkins at linebacker.

Really had a lot of fun with it.
