Yep- I picked him over Diontae Johnson and Preston Williams. As I feared pre-draft I was just outside the TE cliff again - Irv and Berger went 1-8 and 1-10. I didn't consider any other rookie - Terry McLaurin, Quincy Williams, Jonathan Abram, Devine Ozigbo, and Bruce Anderson all went in round two before I picked Kahale Warring at 2-11. Early 1's can yield something decent in this leeg as there are usually a handful give or take we miss in the devy draft, but the cliff for those that make the playoffs the prior year is quite often massive.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching everyone draft bad offensive players and handing me Tavai and Pratt as a result.

I think mediocre LB's are more of a mid-draft sorta thing in a start 2* LB leeg, but every one has their own methods in building their teams. The result of some of those methods make the playoffs 7 years in a row and others miss the playoffs 7 years in a row. And regardless of the method citing Darwin as a 1st round pick is misleading, at best.

Also misleading to state that I’ve missed the playoffs 7 years in a row because of my draft methods when the league is 10 years old, I purposefully drafted a win now team in the original draft and won the league the first two years, and a few years ago you guys tried to replace me because I was on vacation with no service and the substitute drafter took Cordarrelle Patterson in the first round and a bunch of trash after that.

Context is important.

And making the playoffs 7 years in a row got Oar 1 title.
Congrats, you’re the 90’s Buffalo Bills.

I won the league the 1st two years it existed. And I've built a team that should contend for years. Have a lot of dope talent on my college roster too.

But carry on......

So, Oar is a loser for building a team that competes every year, but you'll be cool, once your team actually gets around to competing. 7 years is a very long rebuild, sir.

Elm, you're really bad at reading. I have zero interest in going round and round with you.

Maybe you'll be up to it in 7 years.
