3FL Notes: 2012 Draft Analysis

All but one of our teams was represented during online draft on Thursday night. Here is an analysis of the results (in draft order):

1. Renegades: It was a school night, so Val went to sleep after the first seven or so picks. I won't say which half was best, but they did earn The Toyota Best Draft Award (given by Yahoo! to the team projected to score the most points this year). Thanks, Aaron Rodgers. Grade: A-

2. THE Haw: Coach Haw decided to quadruple the number of capital letters in his team name right before the draft started. AND THEN HE WENT ON TO PICK A PRETTY GOOD GROUP OF STARTERS. He has to hope that none of them get injured, though. Grade: B+

3. Lightning: Even with all of those spreadsheets the Bolts still decided to draft Ben Roethlisberger. But other than a little RB uncertainty, this team may have a chance to take Coach Thadtotti to his first ever SuperBowl. Grade: A-

4. Yuengling Brewers: If RG3 turns out to be even half decent in his rookie season, look out for the defending champs. The rest of the team is stacked. Yahoo! autopick wins again! Grade: A

5. The Comfy Chair: This team is set for the future - the second half of the season should be great. As for the opening weeks? TOM BRADY. Grade: B+

6. Spiked Vipers: It looks like SpiVi will again be a force to be reckoned with in 2012. They are like the 2011 all-stars. We'll see if that success can be repeated. Grade: A-

7. Misfits, Inc.: The hopes of the corporation rest on the shoulders of Peyton Manning and the knees of Adrian Peterson (sorry). Megatron will set the bar for WRs again. And there is also an E-A-G-L-E thrown in for fun. Grade: B+

8. Stiletto Stompers: Looks like the QB/TE/WR first three draft strategy was pretty popular this year. The Stompers may surprise everyone with a couple of sleepers and a Matthew Stafford.
Grade: B+

9. Predacons: Their RBs and WRs are top notch. And after that, uh, you know. That's what you get when you wait until the 7th round to draft a QB. Grade: B+

10. Baltimorons: Coach Drew's team has breakout potential with a few thin spots. That's what you get when you draft two QBs in the first six rounds. Grade: B+

11. Dumbbums: There are some assumed risks with asking someone to draft for you. Your ideas and direction may or may not be taken into consideration. We'll never know which it was, but this team may be better than if Coach Coaldog was at the keyboard. Other than the guys I've never heard of... Grade: B

12. Marauders: The last pick in the draft is always a tough spot. The Marauders performed admirably, especially if their players heal from injuries sooner rather than later. Grade: B+

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