I signed up. We need a lot more board members to join and make it competitive.

There are plenty of wannabe Draft Gurus on the board... come put your reputation on the line.

Lucky and Hou-Tex did best with 6 correct spots.

Gosselin got 8.

The best of all the entrants got 10.

I guess that is why mock drafts mean nothing.

I got 5 with the first 3, Earl Thomas and Maurkice Pouncey.

I did have Alualu in the first round to NO @ 32.

Me, too. I also had the Jags reaching for a DT. But, it was Odrick. :(

Actually, I don't think the Alualu pick was that bad. Pass rushing DTs are hard to find, and the Jags need help on the pass rush. If Alualu proves to be a better pass rusher than Okoye (a former #10 pick), how could we criticize the pick.

Uhm....because we a.)don't like them and b.)are biased?

I love Alualu as a prospect. In both the mock drafts we did, I snatched him up in the 2nd round. #63 to Indy in one and #45 to Denver in the other. Guess I got a steal!

The thing is though, he's just so versatile. I don't know if he's going to be a pass rushing machine... but I do think he's a guy that will play all along the DL in 4-3 and 3-4 fronts. That reaks of value in a player. If Jacksonville wants to run a 3-4 on occasion, he can stay in. He be the NT or the DE. In a 4-3 he can be that DT. I just don't think he was the 10th best player in the draft. I think he had 1st round talent and 1st round value but 10 seems like a stretch. But who cares, I think it will turn out to be a really good pick for them.

If he were to go that early to a 3-4 team, it really wouldn't have surprised me all that much to be honest with you. But to a 4-3 team it was somewhat surprising.
