Fanspeak Speaks

So fanspeak opened up their new mock draft simulator. It costs $4.95 to use till the draft, but till thursday you can use it for free. There are three big boards that you can use, and teams will offer trades between rounds. You yourself can also offer trades during the draft and in between rounds.

Here's what I did with the Optimum Scouting board:

53: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State (a guy this big for Russell Wilson? Hell yeah.)

64: Joel Bitonio, OG, Nevada (could be the next Logan Mankins. vicious blocker in the run game, and did very well against Anthony Barr)

107: Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor (now I know that this one could cause some confusion, but he's so incredibly explosive, I just couldn't pass him up)

117: Jackson Jeffcoat, LEO, Texas (best choice for LEO at this point. 36 inch vert and 123 inch broad is great at ideal LEO size.)

128: Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee (so big and so strong, would fit great into the rotation, especially on run downs)

134: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice (good length and great speed. could be a very good nickle corner in time.)

149: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana (has size, strength, and basketball history, could be a steal at this point in the draft)

160: Brent Urban, DT, Virginia (Tony McDaniel-type length, nasty player at the line, and plays like a more raw JJ Watt)

173: Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson (Token competition for backup QB)

181: Jeremy Hill, RB, Louisiana State (I was stunned he was still there. He's got enough speed to be a threat, and has tons of power)

192: Deandre Coleman, DT, California (depth on the defensive line is never a bad thing)

204: Dri Archer, RB/WR/KR/PR, Kent State (I couldn't resist the potential at this point in the draft. He's so damn fast)

224: Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia (Zach Miller clone)

That's my mock. I don't know many of the O-linemen later in the draft, so I didn't take any of them when I could have taken people that I think are going to be studs at the next level. Some of these picks aren't in line with my own preferences, but there's something to be said for knowing when to take a player and when not to. I missed out on Aaron Colvin because I took Jeremy Hill and thought Colvin would be there later. I was wrong.

Here's a link to the new simulator:

Post your own drafts below, we'll see how they stack up.

They are all going to be very different, but that's the beauty of being able to pick pretty much whoever you want, you can pick pretty much whoever you want.
