3FL Notes: 2018 Draft Analysis

For the first time in recent memory ALL 12 of our teams were represented during the online draft on Thursday night. Here is an analysis of the results (in draft order):

1. the HAW: The consensus number one pick went to the CAPS for the second year in a row and then they disregarded ADP for the next ten rounds. Their team turned out ok but I've never heard of anyone on the bench. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: C-)

2. Spiked Vipers: Antonio Brown was a slight surprise as the second pick, but an early defense and kicker are pretty much expected from SpiVi at this point. The injured Eagles might pose a problem early on. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

3. Misfits, Inc.: Yahoo post-draft calculations are projecting a last place finish and only three total wins this year for FitzCorp. I'm not so sure about that. But I do know that there aren't any E-A-G-L-E-S on the team to root for (yet). Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C-)

4. Renegades: Speaking of projections, the bots at Yahoo! didn't like Coach Val's draft one bit. I don't know that I've ever seen a D grade on an automated analysis report card. She disagrees with that letter but will need to wait on Le'Veon to save the day. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: D+)

5. Marauders: Their starting RBs are formidable and their starting WRs aren't too shabby. If they can get some luck out of their QBs, this team is going to be sneaky good. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: C+)

6. Stiletto Stompers: Coach Bev reached way down to make Aaron Rodgers her first round pick and then selected a TE in the third. And she also won the Duracell® Best Draft. I'm not seeing it, but the highest paid player in the league could prove me wrong. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: A-)

7. Predacons: The Preds started out well but ended up with their usual middle-of-the-pack kind of team. They just better hope the Saints play well on both sides of the ball. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: C)

8. Baltimorons: For drafting on a mobile device in a car on the highway, the 'Morons did a respectable job. Saquon looks like the real deal but there will be excruciating coaching decisions to make every single week. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: C+)

9. Yuengling Brewers: The Brew Crew was live and online with us for many of the middle rounds of the draft this year. Well, someone was signed in to their account anyway. Either way, this team has a pretty solid starting roster as soon as everyone is healthy. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

10. Phys. Ed. Phenoms: The draft was a good first step to get PEP back to the SuperBowl. They are strong at WR, they have Tom Brady, and Mark Ingram will bolster their backfield starting in week five. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: B)

11. Lightning: Ok, fine. This team looks pretty good. I shockingly agree with Yahoo! here and think the Bolts are poised for a great season. It's a very even squad. Grade: A- (Yahoo! Grade: A-)

12. Dumbbums: Coach Coaldog was reminded about the draft about 45 minutes before it began, but maybe that was a good thing. Big Ben and Gronk lead a true bunch of dumb bums. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

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