2017 Draft Day 1 Thread & Mock Contest Reminder

-by DNOMN8R314

[NOTE: A large chunk of this is going to be directly copy-and-pasted from last year’s post. I will, however, be adding more information so that the article goes below the Twitter feed to avoid selection spoilers for those looking to avoid it.
On a similar note, please don’t spoil picks for those looking to avoid spoilers.]

The draft begins tonight, so time is short to make your submissions for the 2017 NEPFF Patriots-Only Mock Draft Contest. Below, I’ll recap the rules for those who have forgotten, and describe some strategies you might use, based on the two (2) (II) submissions already entered.

Rules Recap

  • Send me the 11 players you think it most likely that Bill Belichick will pick.
  • Send the list in order of likelihood you think the Patriots will draft them.
  • Also include which round you think each player will be drafted in. (You may include UDFAs among your 11 if you wish.)
  • You do not have to make one pick for each of the six draft slots they currently have. For instance, if you think the Patriots will trade into the second round and take a certain player there, mark him as a 2nd-round choice and put him on your list.
  • Send your list to contests@patsfootballfans.com and include the list in the body of the email.
  • The deadline is the start of the first round of the draft: tonight (Thursday, April 27) at 8 PM Eastern time.

Scoring Recap

  • If the 1st player on your list (your most likely pick) is drafted by the Patriots, you receive 15 points.
  • 2nd: 12
  • 3rd: 10
  • 4th: 8
  • 5th: 7
  • 6th: 6
  • 7th: 5
  • 8th: 4
  • 9th: 3
  • 10th: 2
  • 11th: 1

If you get the round for any Pats pick correctly, you get 3 extra points.

If a projected draft pick becomes a Pats UDFA or a projected UDFA becomes a draft pick, you only get half of the points for that slot, rounded up.

Potential strategies

At the time of writing, I have two submissions in: mine, and evaldes’. We took two different approaches to forming our mini-boards. Using these two boards, I’m going to summarize two possible strategies to forming your own. (I will not reveal any of our picks.)

  • The Mock (evaldes)

evaldes’ projection is based on a full seven-round mock without trades. He has two picks for the third round, one for the fourth, and so on.

A positive of this strategy is that his picks are spread out, giving him a better chance of getting multiple players correct. He also includes undrafted free agents; since New England is expected to take several UDFAs this year, he has a better chance of a successful post-draft pick.

A negative is that he included no trades, so if the Patriots move up to the first or second rounds, players he might not have been able to consider could be taken. However, this will be more dependent on New England’s board, which of course is going to be different from every draftnik’s.

  • The Shotgun (DNOM)

In my projection, I project more players in some rounds than the Patriots have picks. I have more than two players listed in the third round, more than one in the fourth, and so on, even though the Patriots only have that many picks in those rounds right now.

One positive from this is that I increase my chances of getting those particular picks right. (I’m the one making the picks, though, so they’ll probably be wrong.) I also allowed myself the possibility of trades, projecting some players in the fourth round, for instance.

A downside, though, is that I fully expect to miss out on undrafted players. Since the Patriots only have six picks, I’m risking that all of my choices will have draftable grades and I won’t have any opportunity to get UDFAs right. Of course, if my board is inaccurate, a player I think will be selected could fall out of the draft, and I could end up getting that one right.

I also have guaranteed at least one incorrect selection by inserting three wide receivers, when I don’t think the Patriots will draft more than two. Again, I am gambling that at least one of my choices will be correct, and I don’t have to worry about taking a shot at a position I’m less certain of. I’m also gambling that the Patriots will make less than 11 selections.

Strategies Recap

The point of that section is that you can take multiple approaches to this contest. I’m not trying to argue in favor of one or against another, but I do want to give some observed pros and cons of each so you may make an informed decision.

I’ll also add, without revealing any names, that evaldes and I matched three players on our lists. So different approaches may yield similar results, depending on the individuals and their boards.

I wish everyone the best of luck in this contest.

Now For the Draft Points

While today (Thursday, Day 1, Day One, Day I) is expected to be uneventful from a Patriots standpoint, there is still the possibility of the team moving back into the first or second rounds by trading Jimmy Garoppolo or Malcolm Butler. The most recent reports suggest the Patriots will not trade either player, but the possibility should at least be kept in mind.

The Patriots are expected to heavily target defensive players in the draft, particularly edge defenders. 2017 is considered a deep ED class, so the (current) lack of a first- or second-round pick may not be as damaging to the team’s rookie class as it may be if New England were targeting a different position. (Mind you, of course it’s more advantageous to have first- and second-round picks. I’m not saying it won’t have an impact at all.)

For pre-draft reading material, be sure to check out Eric Edholm’s story on how Mel Kiper Jr. and Joel Buchsbaum turned the draft into THE DRAFT. Regardless of your opinions on Kiper, this is a fantastic story, including an incredible Belichick-Buchsbaum anecdote.

What are your draft plans? Are you watching by yourself? In a viewing party? With family or friends? With copious amounts of alcohol?

And how loudly will you boo when Roger Goodell comes on screen? Will you do so even in a public place?

Enjoy the draft.

I’m all for pushing Gost in camp. I never hid my frustration with his misses (going back to the 2015-16 AFC CG).

Hi jbb, Londonderry is not that from where I am. About 30-40 minutes. Public schools are surprisingly good.

BoSoxJim

No, it was Dobson. Boyce could never get on the same page as TB12 as far as route running.Report

wyo
Editor
Free agent

in the majority of Boyce’s playing time, Jimmy was throwing to him. or throwing in his general direction anyway. I had this article written up a few years back, complete with screen grabs that show Jimmy G doing him absolute zero favors with the quality of his throws. I remain convinced to this day that if he were to play some extended reps with a decent QB, or with Jimmy G now, he would have a much better shot of sticking around.Report

BoSoxJim
Member
Free agent

I did the same thing after the GB preseason game. People were blaming Boyce for everything when it wasn’t his fault. There was 1 real drop in that game by Boyce (1st pass from TB12).
He was actually having a really good camp and was having a great week of practice with the Saints and then he got hurt (again). That was his last chance in NE.Report

true. pretty surprising to see he was in such high demand. we never have guys like that at UW so it was definitely good to see. especially since the Pats picked him up, obviously.Report

I think Jacob has a really good chance of making the team. I know next to nothing about his brother. He didn’t do much in his 3 seasons at Arkansas (apparently injuries were part of that).
All I know about Cody is that he had one hell of a pro day. Good enough to secure him $20K gtd from the Pats. Don’t think the Pats would do that just to secure Jacob’s signing, but who the hell knows?Report

Jdog Lemon Head

They probably got confused and signed Cody 1st, then realized it was the wrong Hollister so they gave Jacob more.Report

That’s ok. It was never going to be a sweep. Wizards are still losing in 6. It’ll be a lot tougher without Oubre for at least one game.Report

No doubt about the ejection for Oubre and he will get a suspension also.Report

Might as well keep playing him since they’re down by so much. He is the one to create the spark they need.Report

Olynyk is also dirty, that’s a dirty “block”Report

Dirty is what Oubre did in retaliation. Not setting a sloppy screen, which he was rightly called for.Report

Olynyk is not dirty….he’s just clumsy. I’m pretty sure he’s one of the nicest guys in the NBA.Report

No. They came back from a lot the last game. Not likely but don’t count them out.
However, the series is over. Wizards have no chance.Report
