    I've always found the time after the Super Bowl, but before the Combine, a tough time for draft junkies. So, let's play a little game to pass the time, but we'll break the rules a bit to make things more fun. You're now the GM of an expansion team, but you get three picks per round to fill out a starting roster of 22 players (your last player will be an UDFA, I guess). Use a couple different boards if you're unsure of relative value or projected rounds for players.

    Do you load up on defense early to stifle the opposition, and hope that your later round receivers can just keep the chains moving? Build the offensive line with dancing bears and rely on a dominant running game to keep time of possession manageable for a ragtag defensive unit? Invest in the QB of the future right off, or search through the bargain bin options? You decide!

    If you really want to ratchet up the difficulty, tag a fellow poster as your draft partner/competition, take turns drafting, and see whose team looks the best at the end. :)

    If I'm following the rules correctly, I'll go by NFL.coms rankings. I'll give myself the benefit of the doubt if they say multiple rounds and use the lower projection.

    Round 1:
    G Quentin Nelson
    T Connor Williams
    DT Vita Vea

    Round 2
    C Billy Price
    CB Carlton Davis
    LB Lorenzo Carter

    Round 3
    QB Mike White
    OT Kolton Miller
    TE Ian Thomas

    Round 4
    RB Royce Freeman
    WR Anthony Miller
    DT Trenton Thompson

    Round 5
    CB Levi Wallace
    S Deshon Elliott
    LB Leon Jacobs

    Round 6
    DE Anthony's Brown
    WR Jester Weah
    G Scott Quessenberry

    Round 7
    LB Shaun Dion Hamilton
    S Trey Marshall
    DE Matt Dickinson

    UFA
    FB Nick Bawden

    I really like your offensive line. Full back is also a fascinating choice. You've got a couple of my favorites on defense, too. Nice effort!

    I'll have to try later. Maybe someone can volunteer to draft against me; that way we're competing over the same draft pool of players. We could PM and then post our results.

    Thank you. I don't have the best skill positions but White will have all day to throw. :)

    This was a fun exercise. Glad you came up with it.
