3FL Notes: 2022 Draft Analysis

Eleven of our twelve teams were represented during the online draft on Thursday night. Here is an analysis of the results (in draft order):

1. Misfits, Inc.: The autodraft bot rewarded itself with the Best Draft designation and this team turned out pretty strong. But would a online Coach Tim-A have picked Jalen Hurts as the starting QB? Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: B)

2. Yuengling Brewers: Opposite of the first pick, our second pick received the (automated) worst draft score in the league. But how can a team with Christian McCaffrey and Patrick Mahomes be at the bottom? Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: C)

3. Spiked Vipers: Straying from his recent draft strategies, Coach Nick stayed away from splash picks and didn't choose a DEF or K until the ninth round. The result is a well rounded team. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: C)

4. the HAW: Yahoo! doesn't love the CAPS 2022 squad. Austin Ekeler returns to the team but he shares the backfield with a make-or-break rookie. Also, that's a lot of Cowboys... Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C)

5. Renegades: There is nothing too flashy about the Renegades this year. They're looking middle of the pack at this point, with their regular season fate somewhat linked to the Buccaneers offense. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

6. Predacons: It seems like the Preds can't shake their ancient draft methods. They again have a strong set of RBs and WRs, but the QB position is...yikes. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C)

7. Stiletto Stompers: Don't sleep on the Stompers. They have quality starters at all positions and have a chance to match their solid showing from last season. Especially if the 49ers Defense was worth their mid-rounds pick. Grade: B+ (Yahoo! Grade: B)

8. Baltimorons: The 'Morons earned the top draft grade but not the Best Draft award. Hmm. Either way this team looks like it could be a contender. Grade: B+ (Yahoo! Grade: A-)

9. Phys. Ed. Phenoms: Strong RBs and a high ceiling Joe Burrow could lead PEP back to the playoffs this year. Fingers crossed about the WR corps though. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

10. Lightning: That is a lot of Bills, but they are supposed to be a top NFL team again this year. And the Bolts didn't pick a RB until the fifth round. But that might turn out to be the right move too. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: B)

11. Marauders: Last year's champion looks to have an uphill battle to defend the title. And they need to hope that all the starters stay healthy. One upside is that this is the only place where Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams are on the same team. Grade: C- (Yahoo! Grade: C)

12. Dumbbums: Coach Coaldog cut it close with his showering schedule and login to the draft, but on a positive note we found out that the Commish can both pause the draft and reverse a pick. As for the team he ended up with after all that? It's fine. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C)

The Comm-nosticator makes his first predictions soon. Stay tuned.
