James’ Top Draft Bargains

I wouldn’t say that I am a skinflint, but I know a bargain when I see one, and I think I know where the line between a calculated risk and a stupid pick is. Yesterday and Thursday night we saw a few teams get absolute bargains in all 3 rounds. So below is a list of Picks by GM’s who blatantly pop in Lidl for a few bits on the quiet, and buy all their Biscuits in Poundland. Picks that, in my opinion, potentially could be the biggest steals of all…

The Gents Draft Review: Day 2

Day 2 had feel good stories, a run on defensive tackles, an insane amount of talent and a kicker going in the 2nd round.

If anything, day 2 might have been better than day 1…

Masking the truth

Ahead of last night’s Draft, most of the talk was of which way round the top two Quarterback prospects of this year’s class – Jared Goff and Carson Wentz – would be picked following the Rams and Eagles making early trade moves to secure the first two spots on the board.

 

The other player being talked about by many was Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. Widely regarded as the best player of the entire draft class, several teams were lined up as possible suitors and Tunsil was expected to have been selected well inside the Top 10.

 

That was, until the immediacy of social media threatened to completely de-rail his Draft experience.

What the Gents Want From the Draft

The draft to NFL fans is like an oasis in a desert, that we’ve been trapped in for 3 months. With that in mind we sat down at the Gents clubhouse and listed all the things we’d like to see in tonight’s proceedings, you know, maybe a completely positive post on something we’re all quite excited about.

What we’ll do with this is simply separate what we want to see by the individual gent and give each point a little explanation.

Let’s get this started.

How Useful is the Wonderlic Test?

Dan had dropped me home after recording this weeks pod and I found myself restless and in need of Stimulation.
My wife and 2 year old son slept soundly upstairs while my active imagination ran riot.
Traditional relaxation techniques didnt interest me, I needed something pretty “out there” to sate my needs.
So I quietly reached for my laptop turned it on and there in the dark I found the very stimuli I had been longing, nay yearning for…..

The Wunderlic Test!

Mock Draft potential 1st Round Movers

Draft and Free Agency

We have done our mock draft podcast and Dan has written his first round mock draft. During our own mock draft as well as discussing potential moves in our Oh I Say picks, it became clear that round 1 could see quite a few late moves by teams this year. In this quick and bit of fun, I am going to list who I think are most likely to switch around and how Round 1 could end up looking like. Just round 1, I’m not totally crazy.

Dan’s Final Mock Draft 2016

With the 2 big trades in place and with the draft being only 2 days away, I thought now would be a great time to fill in my final mock draft. Truthfully not a lot has changed, but more often than not I’ve gone for team needs than the “best player available philosophy”, which I tend to think doesn’t work out for teams.

This is obviously just my opinion and I’d love to know what you think, so hit us up on twitter!

With that, let’s take a look…

What Happens if Peyton Doesn’t Miss the 2011 Season?

With the Off Season in full swing means we get a little freedom at the Gents clubhouse to indulge in some posts that are a little off the beaten track and experiment with a few things we wouldn’t normally do. This got us thinking up a few things and after a conversation with James, inspiration hit, how about a “what if?” series. By now you should have read James’ reimagining of the 1983 draft (if not check it out here). This one focuses heavily on a pain in the neck situation (see what I did there), for the Colts…
