    I thought about this for a while, and here's mine, not doing the whole 7 rounds though.

    1) 32- TE Noah Fant
    2) 56- WR Hakeem Butler
    2) 64- TE Jace Sternberger
    3) QB Will Grier
    3) WR Andy Isabella
    3) Best Available DT

    That's kinda like my ideal 3 rounds. Fant, Butler and Sternberger really address, size, talent and in some cases speed to help in the red zone. Isabella would add to that as well, and also the return game. Grier is a personal favorite of mine, and can learn A LOT from Brady the next 2-3 years.

    What's your ideal draft ?

    With the 5 picks in the top 101, I'd be thrilled to come away with one from each of these groups. Too much to hope for?

    DE: Zach Allen, Charles Omenihu
    TE: Dawson Knox, Jace Sternberger, Kahale Warring

    Not a fan of Deebo?

    Agree with a lot of your list though.

    I would like a draft that focuses on WR, TE and OT early as well as trying to find an impact defensive player. If we came away with 4 of the following I would be ecstatic. There are different combinations for how to do that and a couple of spare picks to move up to make sure it happens.

    TE: Hockenson (1), Fant (1) Knox (3), Sternberger (3), Oliver (3)
    WR: Brown (1), Campbell (2), Ridley (3), Hardman (3), Samuel (2)
    OL: Dillard (1), Risner (1/2), Little (1/2), Scharping (3), Lindstrom (2)
    Defense: Gardner-Johnson (2), Lawrence (1), Abram (2), Thornhill (2), Love (2), Walker (3), Simmons (character permitting) (1), Jones (2)

    Wildcard: Will Grier (3)

    To borrow Patchick’s format

    Any of the following from the first 2 days

    WR - AJ Brown, Deebo, McLaurin, Butler, Hardman, Boykin (maybe Harry)
    TE - Fant, Sternberger, Oliver, Knox, Sample (maybe Warring)
    OL - Risner, Lindstrom, McGary (maybe Little)
    DL - Lawrence, Simmons, Zach Allen, Chase Winovich?
    Other - Joejuan Williams, Juan Thornhill, Darnell Savage, (need to do work on Lonnie Johnson)

    Any combination of these below I’d be happy with

    RB - Id love us to get another power back type

    TE - Fant/Sternberger would be my dream combo but I’d take Sternberger and then another guy later on - Dawson Knox

    WR - Jalen Hurd / AJ Brown / Ridley / Renfrow / Isabella

    DT/DE - Ferrell/ Zach Allen/ Wilkins/ Lawerence/ Simmons/ Tillery

    LB - Pratt / Vosean Joseph

    CB - Deandre Baker/ Greedy Williams

    S/DB - Taylor Rapp / CSG/ Abram

    OK, so far so good! Next up on my shopping list would be either Risner or Allen.

    I think Risner will require a trade up into the 33-42 range . Is he that much better than the other two who likely make it to 56 and then maybe you trade up from 64 to ensure Allen as well?

    BTW the more I've been watching Saunders the more I might take him at 56 if he lasts that long. I also would like Isabella at 56 or 64. I think if they wait until 73 he's gone.

    Yeah, looking back at that list I probably should have grouped Saunders with the DEs. Especially given the run on DTs in round 1, he's one of the more unique players left on the board. And I definitely rate Risner above the other OTs, but maybe not enough to trade up. Isabella I see as part of a bigger value group.

    Oh, and QB. I'm glad they didn't bite at 32, but QB has to be in play from this point forward.

    I think Lock doesn't make it past Denver in round 2. Then I bet there's a gap until somewhere between the middle and end of round three and then I'm betting on a run. It will be interesting to see if the Pats are in that pack of picks if it plays out that way.

    Perfect...and still possible, because every single name on the list - and then some - is available.

    Bill got off to a great start last night; I really really hope he can continue tonight. He has 5 chances to find value at 3 positions: TE, DE & LT. The odds should be in his favor.

    That’s where I’m at. If he can turn these 5 picks into TE DE OT and another wr he would’ve knocked this draft out of the park. I can even understand using one of those on a QB if the right guys there.
