Mocking the Draft: Live Draft Results

Tonight we had a live draft over at Mocking the Draft, I was the Bills rep. With my first pick I took Quinten Coples, DE, UNc With pick #41 I took Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M Then I traded our 3rd, and 4th rounders to get pick #47. Normally I would never do this, but I know I cannot make it to rounds 3-5 tommorow so I decided I'd rather make my own pick rather than BPA. I took Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford. Some of you might think this is a lousy draft, because I failed to address CB or OLB, but after Zach Brown and Upshaw 43 LB in this draft is incredibly weak. Also I was going to take either Minnifield(my top choice), Gilmore, or Denard at #41 but they were taken in 3 of the 5 picks ahead of #41 and after those guys no CB was worth that pick. After taking Coples my main idea of this draft was the build a stocked defense, but those plans fell through when the CBs and my other 2nd round option, Vinny Curry, were all selected right before I pick. Once that was the scenario I decided to go high-potential for my next to picks. I'm tired of being mediocre so I decided take the player with the highest potential on the board. Tannehill, I would go into explain but you've all heard the arguments for him. After that Fleener seemed to be the best choice. TE is becoming more and more a must have weapon for a team and Fleener resembles Rob Gronkowski coming out of college. The idea of Coples is simple: Coples-Williams-Dareus-Player X. That's just scary awesome. I also kept in mind there are some decent OLB and CB free agents this offseason.
