    One last thing... Clowney MIGHT fall to 3 TOPS. I cannot see any legit scenario where Clowney is there for us at 8, though I would LOVE it if he did.
    Yeah ... I keep playing around with this ... but the only board to use is the Fanspeak one and I go ahead and doctor it up a bit every time.

    If Clowney falls past No. 3 ... I reset. If Barr/Carr/Shazier (yeah I have seen it) go No. 1 ... I reset. If it is a ridiculous first five picks ... I reset it.

    It is a good gage of what teams need, but far too many teams draft need no matter what in this simulation which means taking the No. 72 player at No. 20 because it is a need.

    Still fun ... but I watch the first 8 closely and reset when it is too ridiculous at this point.

    My latest. I customized the board to mirror Mel Kiper's Top 100 board ... and it made it come out a little wonky ... though at least Clowney went No. 1 as he should ... Here is what I ended up with:

    32 QB JOHNNY MANZIEL, TEXAS A&M

    40 ILB CHRIS BORLAND, WISCONSIN

    64 S JIMMIE WARD, NORTHERN ILLINOIS

    72 RB TRE MASON, AUBURN

    80 WR MARTAVIS BRYANT, CLEMSON

    84 CB TERRANCE MITCHELL, OREGON

    86 OLB CARL BRADFORD, ARIZONA STATE

    113 G TRAI TURNER, LSU

    153, DT CARAUN REID, PRINCETON

    223 CB NEVIN LAWSON, UTAH STATE

    ARIZONA'S 2015 Fifth Round pick was also acquired

    I did seven trades total, especially after all of the QBs were free-falling ... here are the trades:

    - Sent pick 1-8 to St. Louis for 1-13, 3-11 and 5-13
    - Sent pick 1-13 to NYJ for 1-18 and 3-16
    - Sent pick 1-18 to Philly for 1-22 and 3-22
    - Sent pick 1-22 to S.D. for 1-25 and 4-25
    - Sent pick 1-25, 3-32 and 5-8 to Seattle for 1-32 and 2-32
    - Sent pick 3-8 to Arizona for 3-20 and a 2015 Fifth Round Pick
    - Sent 4-25 and 6-8 to NYG for 4-13

    Good advice, I've just been walking away from it when it does stupid crap like that.

    So, my best one yet IMO ... was able to shuffle around. I had been writing down trades so I could post them here, but didn't here. I did end up with the Eagles 2015 Sixth Round Draft Pick as well.

    My first four picks could not have went much better. I wanted Manziel, but with both he and Bridgewater on the board, I went ahead and traded all the way back to 25 (in front of Cleveland) knowing that I would get at least one. That gave me the ammo to move up for Mosely ... and then Verrett fell in my lap. Tuitt is a steal at that spot.

    All the other picks that were acquired will make for some fantastic camp battles leading to a very solid amount of CONTRIBUTING young players. I think with the load of LBs and S's we should either see what we already have pretty clearly or see that there is better talent out there very clearly. Either way ... all the bodies should provide a better nucleus as those positions.

    R1
    QB TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, LOUISVILLE (Starter Day 1)

    R2
    ILB C.J. MOSLEY, ALABAMA (Starter Day 1)

    R2 CB JASON VERRETT, TCU (Starter Day 1, certainly at least in nickel)

    R3 DE STEPHON TUITT, NOTRE DAME (Heavy rotation, if not starter Day 1)

    R3 RB TRE MASON, AUBURN (Projected future starter learning from the best)

    R4 DT WILL SUTTON, ARIZONA STATE (Heavy rotation Day 1)

    R4 WR JARED ABBREDERIS, WISCONSIN (Should be No. 3 or No. 4 WR on Day 1)

    R4 CB PIERRE DESIR, LINDENWOOD (Should make it as No. 4 or No. 5 CB)

    R4 S ED REYNOLDS, STANFORD (Could actually start Day 1)

    R4 WR ROBERT HERRON, WYOMING (Could make our WR corps go five deep easy)

    R5 ILB JORDAN ZUMWALT, UCLA (Solid depth, Special teams)

    R5 G MICHAEL SCHOFIELD, MICHIGAN (Could come in and battle for significant time)

    R6 OLB KASIM EDEBALI, BOSTON COLLEGE (Depth)

    R7 S ISAIAH LEWIS, MICHIGAN STATE (Could easily develop into longterm starter if others don't work out)
