    He’s taking some false steps. No doubt. But that kid is really raw.

    Good bad or indifferent, I would have jumped out a window if Grier took Edmunds over Minkah. (not a high window, but still)

    I think that would be a very smart project to track poster draft picks..

    I don’t even remember evaluating Houston. Frankly. But whatever. Like I said challenge fully accepted.

    If it’s just dick around stuff then I will pass.

    The important thing is it's gotta be live - the votes have to come in during those few minutes when we're on the clock with only who's left on the board. Unfortunately there's no way to accommodate the "I'd trade up for that guy, I wouldn't have traded down there, etc."

    Agreed. I think it's doable.

    Oh I’m not doing that. No way I’m on this board real time during the draft. I tried that once with a game and was like never again.

    Never again

    Yeah the last part of this is why live wouldn’t necessarily be an accurate depiction of the posters talent

    Not like a live thread, you just gotta hit the poll when we're on the clock.

    Eli Apple? Is that one better? :lol:

    You can take it all serious if you want. I'm sure others will. I just think it would be cool to see how people do in real time then use that in future years to see who really knows what. Then bump and post in the same thread every year.

    There's no way to accurately measure that talent in any meaningful way, considering it requires negotiation with other GMs etc. Just saying "I'd trade down here and look to grab X 5 picks later" is kind of useless.

    Making a pick that pans out at the position we happen to be picking is about as objective of a measure as you can get. And again, personally I don't care about individual poster "talent" at drafting. I'm interested in seeing how we draft as a hardcore Dolphins fan community with varying levels of skill analyzing prospects.
