Why first-pick.com is a joke:

Pick who is BPA and a need (that we tell you is a need) and we'll give you a good grade. Pick anyone else and it's a crappy grade.

Hahahahaha.

Jones' only chance is to go to Tenn. Otherwise he is flipping burgers this fall.

Agreed, but this time I actually took guys I WANTED to take, and it just happened to align with the values to get a good grade. That is rare for me.

Wow, nice score. Pretty good haul - I'd take it. Not a big fan of Watt in the 1st but you traded back so I guess that makes sense. Anzelone could be a beast if he stays healthy. Kupp & Hansen would add some much need skill at WR. If we get Douglas in the 4th, that would be great value.

I agree on that JLambert. I think if Anzalone can stay healthy and Watt can develop further, those 2 along with Dupree and Shazier will give the Steelers the best LB corp since the Greene-Kirkland-Brown-Lloyd group of the mid 90s.

Kupp, Hansen and Shaheen would really improve the quality of Ben's weapons. Those 3, along with Brown and Bell, and possibly Bryant, would make the offense nasty as long as the OL and Ben are healthy.

Usually this game really kills your score if you double or triple up on positions like I did, but apparently the guys were high enough value/quality when I did it that it didn't matter too much for the overall score.

The first 5 guys I drafted were 5 of my top 6 guys on my wish list in this year's draft (excluding DBs which went in 1). Christian McCaffrey is the only one not on the list. I was planning on taking James Conner in 5, but he wasn't even on the list of top guys available so I figured he'd be around in 6. He wasn't though, so I went with Jones who sounds alright but I haven't actually watched him yet.

I just messed with this and it also allowed teams to trade me their comp picks which everyone should know is not possible

It can be fun, but it is too rigid and is not realistic enough for me. For example, you have a veteran team like the Steelers and you get higher points for constantly moving down and adding players than drafting the bet players available to improve the team. Fourteen rookies are not going to make the 2017 Steelers roster and you can't stash eight or nine players on the practice squad. It is fun, but there needs to be some tweaking including what I think is a need should be allowed to be different from what the computer thinks as well.

It needs to let you trade more from future years. More than 1st round picks. Because your don't always trade from within 1 draft.

They should also take a page from fanspeak. Multiple big boards, multiple needs charts. I think part of it is they never updated after FA what the needs are.
