Pro Football Focus announced the release of their new Mock Draft Simulator, Thursday, so I took full advantage and drafted on behalf of the Tennessee Titans.
Mock draft simulators are popping up all over the internet, and drafting on behalf of the Tennessee Titans during the Coronavirus pandemic is the best way to spend idle time.
Pro Football Focus announced the release of their Mock Draft Simulator on Thursday, and I didn’t miss a beat. The verdict?
PFF’s version is unimpressive as a platform, despite being powered by AWS (an Amazon company). However, I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the trading possibilities and capitalized where I saw fit. If this is how the draft ends for the Titans, we might throw a parade on Broadway prematurely.
Before we rip the meat off of the bone, I’d like to illustrate the trade scenarios I executed.
First, I traded out of the first round, sending numbers 29 and 174 (fifth-round) overall to the Carolina Panthers for a second (37), third (71), and fourth (112).
After my first second-round selection, I decided to trade back again. I sent a second (61) for two third-rounders (87,98) from the New England Patriots.
When I got to 87, there were a few players I still liked quite a bit, and the Minnesota Vikings came calling. The offer was for two third-rounders: 89 — two spots later, and 105, a conditional third. I pulled the trigger; suddenly, I had five third-round picks in my arsenal.
After my fourth-rounder (Carolina) passed, I realized I needed to address the cornerback position once more. I still had the three seventh-rounders, so I sent two to the Minnesota Vikings (we have an excellent working relationship) to move up. The deal was Minnesota’s 207 for the Titans 224 and 237.
So, who was I able to land after all of these moves? Follow the slideshow below to find out.
