    Slimm's big board applied to our draft

    Here's a gem of a thread that is apropos right now....I found myself doing this anyway, so thought I'd share it with the board.

    I've simply taken each of our picks through the first 5 rounds and pulled out where they stood in Slimm's rankings from his thread here, posted on the draft forum:
    http://www.finheaven.com/showthread.php?334538-Slimm-s-2013-Position-Rankings

    . Makes it easy to compare and get a quick feel for 'how we did' according to Slimm.


    I've listed each pick with 3 lines.
    First line: Round/position in the round ( overall slot in draft ) Player - Position
    Second line: Slimm's positional ranking - player - valued round
    Third line: slimm's ranking on his big board ( you can compare this directly with the 'overall slot in draft number )

    Granted this is from 2/28 but it's the best overall big board I could find...

    1.3 ( 3) Dion Jordan - DE
    6. Dion Jordan - 1st round
    19. Dion Jordan / DE / Oregon

    2.22 (54) Jamar Taylor - CB
    4. Jamar Taylor - 2nd round
    40. Jamar Taylor / CB / Boise St.

    3.15 (77) Dallas Thomas - OT
    16. Dallas Thomas - 4th round (guard)
    173. Dallas Thomas / OG / Tennessee

    3.31 (93) Will Davis - CB
    12. Will Davis - 3rd round
    87. Will Davis / CB / Utah St.

    4.7 (104) Jelani Jenkins - LB
    12. Jelani Jenkins - 5th round
    208. Jelani Jenkins / LB / Florida

    4.9 (106) Dion Sims - TE
    6. Dion Sims* - 3rd round
    72. Dion Sims* / TE / Michigan St.

    5.31 (164) Mike Gillislee - RB
    16. Mike Gillislee - 4th round
    162. Mike Gillisliee / RB / Florida


    Made me feel better about some of the guys I'd never heard of! Also, as a body of work, we ended up with:
    - 1 1st rounder
    - 1 2nd rounder

    - 2 3rd rounders
    - 2 4th rounders
    - 1 5th + a kicker

    Which is maybe about average based on the ammo we started out with, pending whether you agreed on the trade up for Dion Jordan or not ( if you believe JJ's trade chart, the move up should've costed 2 2nd rounders meaning we got a surplus 2nd round pick in value, but Slimm has Jordan ranked lower than our original 12th slot, meaning we effectively wasted a 2nd rounder ).

    Also, the big reaches were Thomas, Jenkins, and Dion Jordan, but we got good value out of Jamar Taylor and Dion Sims.

    To sum up: An 'average' draft via Slimm's big board---I'll take my chances with that

    He had Jordan at 19. If he knew his stuff he'd be getting paid to scout and not posting here.

    How do you know he isn't a scout? You would be surprised if you knew some of the people who post here.

    Either way Slimm has earned his respect here so give it to him or stay out.

    I bet if he had Jordan as his top rated prospect, you'd be singing his praises. And I'm pretty sure you don't have a clue what anybody on here does in real life.

    He also had Will Davis as his 12th best CB and a 3rd rd prospect. I think it amply shows how subjective this whole process is.

    If he was drafting for us the past five years our team would be tons better. His pre draft picks are pretty well known as to who he would of taken
