    I find that simulator pretty unrealistic at times.

    I think it follows the values well and the players picked, the only thing is you seem to have more "power" with trades then IRL but overall it's pretty solid

    I couldn't possibly disagree more. It gets the wrong needs for the Jets and the wrong priorities for their needs. Its rating of players is screwy, and the basic premise of that game is to make a gazillion trades in order to get a top score or take players that don't really fit the team's needs or scheme. It's whole premise is going what it considers BPA. It ignores differences in blocking schemes, defensive schemes, and one cannot do that and be anywhere near reality. I think it's the worst of the 5-6 mock draft simulators out there.

    sure you can do that. but you can also play it realistically like any game and ignore the "needs" they list. who cares about their point total. the point is to draft players for the jets which can be done realistically and see what you get

    Yes, one can do that, but their player rankins are still way off on many players. IMO PFN, the draftnetwork, and fanspeak.com are ALL better.

    I would get a B for drafting AVT with pick 34 a week before the draft.

    And that is crazy! Anyone who knew draft prospects knew that he was the top OG in the draft and most likely going in the top 15 picks. So to give a team B for drafting him at any point is ridiculous. That's why ultimately, I don't really like any of the draft simulators. I do them and do what I think the Jets need to do, to see how many of the players I like and positions of need filled, but I just ignore their grades.

    He was a day 2 prospect until 3 weeks before the draft and could be had closer to the third round :D OT Radnuz could also be got in the third round.

    Conversely, not one single person on this site that played either game selected any of the Jets 5th round onwards picks and tbh I can't even say I saw their names to choose from lol

    Did a 2022 simulation and got this.

    6. Derek Stingley Jr CB LSU
    8. Zach Harrison Edge Ohio State
    60. Jake Ferguson TE Wisconsin
    70. Edefuan Ulofoshio LB Washington
    113. Warren McClendon OT Georgia
    138. Damone Clark LB LSU
    148. Nolan Smith Edge Georgia
    170. Sheridan Jones CB Clemson
    189. Cade York K LSU
    194. Noah Taylor LB Virginia

    Getting the top CB and a top 5 Edge prospect two picks apart was too good to pass up on.

    I tried to go realistic and yeah it's early on but I really like how this one turned out
    [​IMG]

    I traded down from 4 to 10 for some extra picks including a 1st rounder from carolina in 2023 and was still able to get the 2nd best CB in the draft in booth who would fit our defense perfectly.
    I then traded up from 24 to 22 to grab zach harrison for our future edge rush needs. JFM is a FA after this year and lawson will be coming off an ACL injury and shaq lawson is on a 1 year rental most likely. we need some youth and depth and good edge rushers seem to be exclusively top draft picks more-so then any other position. we invested a lot in offense so I feel the top 2 picks if it can fall this way should be on defense

    With our 2 2nd rounders (ours and carolina form the darnold trade) I stayed put and shored up the o-line grabbing charles cross and lecitus smith. Cross can be a perfect RT for us, athletic to fit our scheme since fant will be expensive and moses is a 1 year rental. He can be our future RT even if he sits a year behind fant or moses next year depending what JD does. Smith is perfect for our system, a former TE moved to guard is very athletic and can start at RG to replace GVR. That would mean we have an all new young o-line outside of C but mcgovern will be here for a few years and is good so i'm not concerned.

    in the 3rd round I wound up with 2 picks, got an extra from the trade down and grabbed i started with S brandon joseph. we need safety help. maye is a FA and hasn't been able to work out a deal. davis is a question mark, joyner is a 1 year rental. Joseph is smart and athletic and made some great INTs in his career so far. should fit in perfect in our defense. Then I grabbed Jarrett patterson an athletic OC to back up mcgovern and replace feeny and be a starting OC for us at some point. can't have too much depth on the o-line and a great system fit and value in the 3rd.

    for the rest of the picks I grabbed TE ruckert an athletic receiving TE, S jason catalon for depth at safety, RB CJ verdall who reminds me of MJD and fits the system well and could have a big roll splitting caries with carter and ty johnson. and finsihed it off with gadget WR calvin austin who is tiny but fast and shift and can rac up YAC in our offense.
