    Doesn't even make a little bit of sense.

    What do you mean? I thought that would be a great haul. Getting Donald and Filo would be awesome IMO

    How is it even remotely possible to get 3 2nd round picks from 3 different teams? And none of which are even from the team we traded back with in the 1st. I'm not saying you picked bad players, but you have to make it at least somewhat realistic

    I traded back in the first to 22 and then back up in the second to number 5, not that crazy.

    The trades in first-pick are so wildly inaccurate it's laughable.

    Not even sure why I'm continuing this....

    But ok and that would have been fine, but what about Tuitt and Turner? You have us picking up the 18th from Miami for nothing and a 2nd and 3rd from Indy for nothing. Did you trade next year's 1st and 2nd round picks or something?

    They looked pretty legit according to the Walter Football chart. The number of trades may be a lot, but the values were OK.

    Unless you traded future picks, this is not at all accurate.

    It looks like you traded
    1(16) for 1(22)+2(5)+2(27)
    1000 for 780+530+310 (1620)

    However you got there you gained 620 points in your trades

    first-pick trades are comical but whatever trades he got were not made up. I mean, if you offer a trade and it's accepted, it's not your fault they took it.

    But yes, in real life, this does not happen. Furthermore, the players taken would not be there either.

    But in the end, it was good draft based on the trades and players available to him.

    You should post the exact trades that you made.

    I can't remember. I wasn't writing a college essay. I was just trying to trade back in the first and trade back up in the 2nd to get 2 players in the 22-36 range. I think that will end up better than 1 at 16 and 1 at 47.

    I think I traded back to 17 or 18 because Manziel was still there and a team offered a 2nd(54). An over-pay on paper, but when a team wants a QB they tend to do that.

    I traded back again to 22 and got another late second.

    Then I traded our 2nd and 3rd to move up 10 spots to 37.

    And finally I traded back in the second and picked up a third.

    I like the first-pick draft game and try to play it straight most of the time, but if the players I like are abundant, trading back in the first and trading back up in the second seems like the best way to go. The 2 extra 2nds may have been a little more than can be expected, but they would still be two thirds at worst.
