Can the Bengals get Bene Benwikere (waiver claim) and Tanzel Smart (last draft pick) added to the roster and Randy Gregory removed? That will leave me at 88 with a couple of UDFA claims to go.

I have a question about the UDFA bidding. The league minimum salary is 465K but that doesn't seem to be an option while there are several options below that.

Yes,...kinda went relax mode a little early. I think the back to back mocks might be a bit much for this old man to handle.

I'll get things updated today / evening.

For the UDFA, as bad as I hate to say it, pure laziness on my part and really too far into to change it.

Honestly, it needs to be completely redone, what your're seeing is two concepts mixed together that simply don't work and was overlooked as I rushed to get the form out.

The concept was that all UDFA signings would be your 10 practice squad members, so the amount while not accurate was set at 100k and increased to 1m.

Definitely something that I need to get corrected for the next mock draft. Also, not really even sure I want to continue to use the highest bid wins concept.

I knew my guys would be bottom of the pack when the votes went out. Posters here don't like me and my knowledge. We will see in a few years though Cool

The only knock I had with your draft was Malik McDowell, I hope I'm wrong and he turns out to be the next Vontaze Burfict, not the same position obviously but similar question marks going into the draft. I passed on him and perhaps I should of selected him but it was just too big of a question mark at least in my opinion.

These mock drafts that we do is all in good fun, I mean look at last year's draft compared to IRL, we're no more experts than the experts.

If you are doing this to try and win awards, then things are a bit misguided. The awards are fun and all, but my goal was to add as much talent at positions of need (and as many positions as possible) to improve the team as a whole.

Chicago started with a lot of holes, I think we filled a lot of them and did not mortgage the future in getting Garoppolo.

Added at top 10 RT, added depth to the OL through FA and the draft. Greatly improved the secondary with 2 FA safeties and Lattimore in round 1.

Added a HOF veteran TE in Gates and picked a athletic TE in Sheehan that can learn from Gates and ideally grow with Garoppolo.

Retained Jeffery at WR and added some pieces in FA and the draft.

Added depth along the DL and pass rush.

Only real regret is not getting an upgrade at LT to protect Garoppolo, but with
LT: Leno
LG: Sitton
C: Whitehair
RG: Long
RT: Wagner

that is a very solid OL, and have a few potential young players that could develop at LT.

All things considered, I think Chicago is much better now than they were on February 14th. Certainly a lot rides on Garoppolo being the QB most think he can be. If he is not, Kaaya was selected to see what he has to offer. If both fail, then at least the roster is positioned to be ready for a young QB to be added to a top to bottom better team that what ended the 2016 season.

OK kiddo.

Was not saying "you" in particular, but in a general sense. Carry on for the love of it.
