Thinking Ingram to the Chargers has prolly been the best steal thus far, followed by Cox to the Eagles

Pats trade up. Didn't know they knew how to do that

What the fuck? We trade up twice and end up with Hightower. Nice.

LOL Niners, what a reach. Nearly as bad as Seattle.

Seriously, we smashed that first round. I'm extremely happy over here right now.

Yeah Pats did well yet again. Seems to be the way with them on draft day. Personally I'd of preferred the Giants took Fleener or possibly Upshaw but RB was a need

Ppl said we reached for Aldon Smith last year. In Harbaugh we trust!

I don't think Seattle picked a bad player at all, but they probably should have tried to trade back 10 or so spots and get some more value out of it. The dude looks like a situational player who'll pretty much come in as a pass rusher. He actually reminds me of Aldon Smith quite a bit.

Plus Seattle got Russell Wilson, the 3rd best QB in the draft imo. Absolutely love that kid and I can see why Pete Carroll would too (don't know if it was this thread or the last but I posted some video of him and fapped on a fair bit).

Carolina getting Kuechly was a great decision. Talk about taking the best player available. They need a guaranteed winner and they have one.

The Bengals absolutely tore this draft a new arsehole. Absolutely solid picking all over the place.

Luck has also been given quite a few weapons in this draft (Fleener is going to be of huge benefit).

Ah what the hell i'll write about this later. So much to discuss! An absolute belter of a draft!

Bengals also in the process of signing Burfict. Great acquisition for an undrafted player.

Wonder who will go after Kellen Moore.

Debatable. Kid has a fuckload of issues and is so badly out of shape it's not funny.

Of course it is. But the point is that they're getting someone who was originally considered a potential first round prospect for peanuts without giving up any draft picks.

Pats probably have the steal of the draft with Alfonzo Dennard in the 7th.

Detroit are very lucky to be getting Kellen Moore undrafted as well.

Turns out they made the right choice as the Jets said they were planning on taking him with the next pick!

Worth getting? I stupidly paid no attention to the fact they were about to change suppliers and bought 3 Reebok Eagles jerseys last year.

Shady gets a new deal for the Eagles. Decent numbers for him & should help one of Rice & Forte get a deal done.

The first fantasy mock draft for the upcoming season is up on ESPN http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/fo...2k12mockdraft1

Maybe have a seperate fantasy thread this year if there is enough interest???

Also has anyone seen the ESPN 30 for 30 doco on Marcus Dupree. Damn he could run.

Was only a metatarsal so not terrible & he could recover earlier but this seriously sucks as the Giants receiving core is depleted even more so without him. Good news for rueben randall as he will get alot of first team reps now but if nicks is out of shape for the beginning of the season, Eli will likely struggle & return to his intercept prone self

Yeah it's awesome, a really interesting look at how organizations run their team. I'm not overly excited to watch the fins personally but the 3 way QB battle will be kinda fun I guess

Slow off season now solved by signing up to NFL Network online. $5 a month for 24/7 football programing.

Will certainly suffice till the proper game pass & pre season starts.

For any Melbourne fans of American Football, GVTV Gridiron Victoria Television debuts on Channel 31 next Monday night at 6:30pm.

Will also post it online. Should be a bit of fun showcasing local amateur gridiron.

Can't beleive the Dolphins didn't take him. Must be waiting for T.O

Edit. Spoke too soon. It appears the Dolphins have looked at their roster & realised beggars can't be choosers. 1 year deal inked apparently

So I was bored at lunch and just created a 10 team fantasy keeper league on ESPN. It's a bit early I know but whatevs. Ideally I want to keep it to 10 teams who really want to do it and who are committed to playing in the league for at least the next three seasons which I know some of you are. If you have mates etc who might want to play in the league then by all means they are welcome, I'll even expand the league to 12 teams or more if we get a good bunch of dudes together.

Draft will most likely be the Saturday/Sunday night around 8.30pm but most likely Sunday so we can all be available for it but fuck its ages away so we can work that shit out closer to the date.

I guess I'm just putting some feelers out to see who's keen to play a keeper league and who isn't. If you want in PM me your name and email and I'll send you the invite. I'll also start a fantasy specific thread sometime in August I guess.

I'm still undecided on playing Keeper and Unlimited Positions.

I'm definitely up for a long-term league (even with an entry fee) but I think it's worth noting that if we have 10 people who are very serious about it then the draft will be one of the most fun parts anyway (which means it'd be better to start afresh every season). Plus, having a set amount for each position means that people are actually required to think about who they're drafting instead of just picking every elite name that comes their way and trying to trade half of them in Week 1.

That's my 2 cents.

Haha good call!

I reckon he'll be far more effective at Miami than he was in New England. 1000+ season for sure, providing he plays all 16 games.

As ive already been doing mock drafts for a week now, I'm definately in for a keeper. PM sent

This is good. No chance anyone is going to have 8 RB's from the get go but gives you a chance to trade & stockpile if injuries hit during the season. I wholeheartedly endorse the Sunday night over the Saturday night draft as I will be in BFI on Sept 1st with zero chance of completing a draft

Anyone else been tracking the NFL.com top 100 players of 2012 countdown? I'm sure this is stuff you guys already know but this is an awesome way to learn all the top players from teams that I have NFI about last year.

I'd love to have this sort of footage and coverage for the NHL or EPL to be honest. Super well produced.

Yeah been paying some attention to it. Only thing I don't like is the list itself, some ridiculous rankings because the players got to vote themselves.
