    I love this draft game, but we all do it attempting to get the best players and the best score, but how would we really handle it after dealing with Free Agency.

    My attempt if anyone cares.....

    Resign:
    CB, Grimes
    CB, Carrol
    S, Clemons
    OG, Jerry
    DT, Soliai
    MLB/ST, Spitler

    Post June 1st release Wheeler
    release Matt Moore
    try to resign Patterson to team friendly deal
    Try to resign Wallace to more friendly deal

    Free Agent:
    OT, Ryan Harris
    OG, Wade Smith
    OLB, Rocky McIntosh

    Free agency wouldn't cost much, bring a couple familiar players from Houston to help assist in fixing line.

    Then my gangster draft below, with the trade up to 12 for a superstar WR.
    A very good value at DE in 2nd, andother playmaker in the 3rd.
    come back in-state and get a beast DT and MLB.
    Gamble on some Olinemen, select Matt Moore's cheaper replacement with possibly more upside.
    Then finish with some late round gems!
    This would be a great talent infusion!

    Round 1 Pick 12 (NYG): Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson (A)
    Round 2 Pick 21 (G.B.): Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame (A-)
    Round 3 Pick 17: Andre Williams, RB, Boston College (A-)
    Round 3 Pick 24 (CINN): Dominique Easley, DT, Florida (A)
    Round 4 Pick 17 (CHI): Christian Jones, ILB, Florida State (A)
    Round 4 Pick 23 (CINN): Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford (D+)
    Round 5 Pick 15: Brandon Thomas, OG, Clemson (A)
    Round 6 Pick 14: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia (A-)
    Round 7 Pick 14 (DAL): Vinnie Sunseri, SS, Alabama (A)
    Round 7 Pick 19: James Stone, C, Tennessee (A)
    Round 7 Pick 23 (DAL): De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon (B)

    Andre Williams would be a horrible pick for us. Doesn't fit the scheme. You need a 1C running back for the ZBS.

    That is Andre Williams. He commits and doesn't deviate, he's not elusive in the open field, he doesn't change direction very well either. He's a between the tackles runner. He also isn't a very good receiver out of the backfield and a poor pass blocker.

    That's the problem Miller has and he doesn't like to run in confined spaces either.

    All the fools that say we should release Wheeler, makes me laugh. He will count against our cap 6.5mil if we cut him and the same if we don't.

    We will not be releasing Wheeler. I repeat......we will not be releasing Wheeler.

    and why would Wallace restructure?? Please elaborate??

    What are you talking about? I sign a tackle and center and draft a guard. With Pouncey moved to guard that 4 spots, surely one of our remaining guys can take the last tackle position; Clabo maybe.

    In my OP, I sign Collins, Asamoah, Britton & draft Taylor Lewan. With Dallas Thomas, Nate Garner, Sam Brenner & Mike Pouncey already signed up, who else do you want?

    Why not cut him if he cost the same to cut? He is a liability on defense. He can't tackle, takes poor angles and overruns plays every game.

    Why do you call people fools? How do you know we won't release last years free agent mistake from previous GM with the new GM who is more in tune with the coaching staff? No need to be an ******* on a message board!
