3FL Notes: 2023 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. Marauders: Perhaps his recent move to the sunshine state is the reason Coach Hoss drafted six players from Florida teams. Yahoo sure didn't like that, though. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: D)

2. Baltimorons: There wasn't any love for the 'Morons' picks either. I'll admit that Diontae Johnson was probably a reach, but Jalen Hurts and Austin Ekeler make this team better than a D. Grade: C+ (Yahoo! Grade: D)

3. Stiletto Stompers: The Stompers put together a solid team and their top four picks really stand out. They just have to hope everyone stays healthy because their bench is pretty thin. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: C+)

4. Renegades: As long as Justin Fields can at least meet expectations, this team looks like it could be going places. Does Coach Val know something about Jahan Dotson the rest of us don't? Grade: C+ (Yahoo! Grade: B)

5. Yuengling Brewers: Our returning champs stacked things up for their title defense. It's a well balanced squad with some sleepers who could make it even better. Grade: A- (Yahoo! Grade: A)

6. the HAW: The CAPS won the Best Draft award, but I'm not ready to crown this team quite yet. They do have a top tier players but the RBs might be a weak link Grade: B+ (Yahoo! Grade: A+)

7. Misfits, Inc: The autodraft bot picked three WRs in a row to start the draft, so that was a little strange. But even stranger is that there are no Eagles on this team. Only division rivals. Grade: C- (Yahoo! Grade: D)

8. Phys. Ed. Phenoms: WOW. I don't think I've ever seen an F given out by Yahoo. I have to disagree with their assessment. Burrow and Metcalf and a decent backfield make me wonder about those calculations. Grade: C- (Yahoo! Grade: F)

9. Spiked Vipers: With two TEs and two Ds the Vipers sure mixed it up this year. They did draft one of those Defenses in the 8th round though. I guess some things stayed the same. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: A-)

10. Dumbbums: Coach Coaldog did ok this year. It's looking like there may be some tough choices to make at QB throughout the season though. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: D+)

11. Predacons: Rookie RB? Early(ish) choice of a QB? The Preds went off script this year but maybe that's a good thing. They'll need some luck a the TE position. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C-)

12. Lightning: I'm not saying this team isn't good. I just thing that throwing around multiple A+ grades seems a little much. WRs are iffy. But Mahomes can cover up a lot of things. Grade: A- (Yahoo! Grade: A+)

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