Default your own drafttek simulator

The team at www.drafttek.com have designed a draft simulator that allows you to input your team needs.

You can prioritise your draft needs by position and the number of players needed in those spots. Once finished it generates a three round mock based on your priorities.

The player ranking list appears all over the place - but I guess it is early in the season.

I have been having a little playing with it. I am guessing some will like it, others will hate it.


Check it out at http://www.drafttek.com/simulator/frmInput1.aspx

My first draft attempt picked
1. Jonathon Luigs OC
2. Alex Boone OT
3. Panel Egboh DE

That was cool. I actually took their #1 for us but I didn't like the other 2 picks. I took this:

1. Tyson Jackson
2. Ciron Black
3. Phil Loadholt
4. Tim Jamison
5. Kraig Urbik

Very cool...I got:

1) DE-Tyson Jackson
2) DT-B.J. Raji
3) OT-Jason Smith

(had to do some research on Smith...not bad!!)

Haven't done Draftek yet but one player to consider is Tulane center Michael Parenton. He manhandled Glenn Dorsey last year and "Mount" Cody of Alabama this year.

We can probably grab him on day two unless he's a combine star.

As of now Jackson is considered the 4th or 5th best DE in this coming draft...HOWEVER, he may be considered the best 3-4 end.

.... Michael Johnson from Georgia Tech, Greg Hardy from Ole Miss and George Selvie from South Florida
are projected to go in the upper part of the first round...(though Selvie might translate better into an outside linebacker)

Tyson Jackson & Greg Middleton from Indiana should both go in the latter part of the 1st....I wouldnt be hurt at all if we traded up for Jackson....but you are right, his being a prototype 3-4 end could elevate his value.

LLT - I saw LSU's first game ( yes we are getting some college games broadcast live down here) and I was blown away with how loaded they are on the D line.

Tyson Jackson looked very good to me but also with Woods, Favorite and Jean- Francois- they were great against the run. I caught a Stanford game and Egboh ( who has similar measurables to Jackson) looked like a boy compared to Jackson.

I also caught the OSU / USC game and Moala didnt seem to have the same presence as Jackson (granted he played DT)

With the little film that I have seen I would say Tyson Jackson would have to be close to the best 3-4 end prospect so far.

I haven't see a LSU game yet this year, but I know what your saying. Jackson, Woods, or Favorite could all play DE for us. I think both of us had Jackson targeted from the beginning, and he still would be my top choice of any of the DE. Now that he may end up around were we should be picking I am getting a little excited.
Now if Boone or one of the top 2 centers will just fall to us in the 2nd.
