Man...only 6 or 10?
Man...only 6 or 10?
Great thread idea BassFin!
My six (it's so hard to narrow it down to six!) would be:
1. Tyler Eifert
2. Cordarrelle Patterson
3. Ryan Swope
4. Justin Hunter
5. Brian Winters
6. Michael Mauti
Honorable mention list (I can't help myself!) includes Barkevious Mingo, Robert Woods, Justin Pugh, Bacarri Rambo, Zach Ertz, Cobi Hamilton, Travis Kelce, Mike Gillislee and Chase Thomas. Hell, who am I kidding, I couldn't even do a top 10, so those are my 15 guys, which the Dolphins are almost guaranteed not to draft.
It's just difficult to understand the rules by which these will be judged. If its all about whether 3 or 5 of them turn out awesome then all 6 of your guys should be your favorite 1st rounders.
How about two guys from each day of the draft? Two guys you think are going day one, two you think go day two, and two you think go day three?
The idea is to see which guys end up on most lists. Some people will load up on guys who will all go in the top 2 rounds. Some will add some more obscure names.
It's just a way for us to have fun and pass time until the draft is here. I encourage everyone to do it in whatever format floats your boat. As always CK, your way is very structured. But that's cool! I like your idea too. The only rule is it has to be a player you would love to see on aqua and coral.
Love seeing how different everyone's thinking is! And surprised and the number of OL on these lists so far.
Keep 'em comin'!
My top 10 man crush picks would be (in no order)
Sylvester Williams DT
Alec Ogletree LB
Jamie Collins OLB
Tank Carradine DE
Stedman Bailey WR
Jake Stoneburner TE
Kiko Alonso LB
Cordarrelle Patterson WR
Miguel Maysonet RB
Jordan Poyer CB
Honorable mentions: Jonathan Cooper OG, Eric Reid S, DJ Swearinger S, Markus Wheaton WR, Reid Fragel OT, Tyler Eifert TE
These are all guys who get me sitting up in my seat watching them. All over the draft, they're guys I maybe feel have something special, or I picked them out before they started rising up charts, or I feel they're undervalued.

Note: Players excluded from this list are not necessarily "hated" or anything like that.
I made my list today...I was going to make a separate thread, but I think I will just add to this...I divided it based on "my favorites", "overrated" and "underrated". A few players overlap with my favorites and underrated.
Wanted to bump my man crush list. Bolded the picks for the night.
CK, you want to move Richardson to DE?
