My Broncos Draft 2012

Did this last year on here so keeping the tradition going.  Although I have done it every year, as probably most people have.  Usually takes a few years to iron out, so I can come back and check once we get there.  On record for saying I don't understand many of the trades and wouldn't of done them, but I will keep with that to make it easy and just repick what was picked with each position.

Rd2-36:  Took Derek Wolfe, I would of taken Stephen Hill since Fleener was off the board.  Knowing the nice DT depth I wouldn't of gone with a pick there.  Honestly would of liked to see a move in the first to get Dre Kirkpatrick, or even David DeCastro, but nope.

Rd2-57: Took Brock Osweiler, I would of taken Derek Wolfe here, and if he was taken rather than one of the other four D-Linemen in Branch, Worthy, Still or Reyes I would of been ok with them as well.  Think Brandon Thompson would of been ok here to, boy he dropped though.

Rd3-67: Took Ronnie Hillman, and if EFX just had to pick a QB take Nick Foles.  But if it were up to purely me, this is where Thompson lands.  Give us two nice options for D-Line.

Rd4-101: Took Omar Bolden, I would like to of thought Hillman lasts here with all the picks taken in between and then you have a great change of pace back after 3 players who could work their way into the starting lineup.   Lamar Miller went a few picks prior who would of been great, but can't have him and maybe have Hillman anyways.  If we dont have a second D-Linemen, take Jared Krick.

Rd4-108: Took Phillip Blake, and I might be ok with this pick.  If not, Bobby Massie there.  Get best O-Lineman.

Rd5-137: Took Malik Jackson, but I was hoping for George Iloka with our current choices at S.

Rd6-188: Took Danny Travathan, and not bad after reading up on him, keep with EFX on that one.

So with the picks as they had to be, since I can't trade back, here's my draft:
Hill
Wolfe
Thompson
Hillman
Massie
Iloka
Travathan

Important Notes:

Minimum score to win a contest is a combined 6 points for the winner, unless Judge over rules after extension.

Tie Breakding Rule for Placement into Next Divisions:
  1. Overall Win loss record
  2. IF 2 teams have equal records, then the winner of the head to head matchup has the higher seed.
  3. If teams did not play head to head, overall percentage of votes for your team to get the higher seed. 

* = Current teams in the top four to move into the "Best" Division.

Winning your division DOES NOT ensure a top 4 spot, it will be spread through both divisions.

Idiots guide to the ATMD: Draft Version

Happy Drafting, don't screw it up...Wink

1. Don't trade a GOAT player, ever, doesn't matter what the scenario is. If you question who a GOAT player is, maybe you shouldn't be on the ATMD-Land ride quite yet.

2. Try hard to get an Elite Bigman in the first round and keep him.  What if you don't have a high enough pick, then trade to get one.  Players like Chamberlain, Jabbar, Russell, Hakeem and Shaq will dominate most other bigs.  The only way to combat not having one is having someone in the next tier and surrounding him with maybe a GOAT non-big to make up for it.  Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson are good players to do that.

3. Don't trade out of the first round, those kinds of players win games.  Unless you have a late first rounder and can pick up another high second rounder that might of been picked there anyways.  Sometimes first rounders will drop into the second because someone is trigger happy on players that don't belong anywhere near there.  Like George Mikan, poor DJ.

4. Get players that can play some defense, and some serious defense.  Round 4-6 will have some studs, keep your picks in those rounds to get them.  Someone who has won a DPOY is a good choice, the more the better.  Someone who has been selected to many first team nba defense is also a good choice ( find the site basketball-reference.com if you need help ).

5. Learn who the "Black-List" of ATMD players are and avoid drafting them.  Some of the more knowlegable people know their worth, but unfortunately in ATMD-Land they will never live up to their true value. 

6. Understand what the value of draft picks mean.  A 2nd round pick, say pick number 18 compared to a 2nd round pick, say number 24 is worth a heckuva lot more than a pick swapped in the 5th round 6 picks away.  The immortal Jimmy Johnson had a good formula that he built a champion on.  Beware of swapping picks later just to move up a few.

7. Unless you are just obtaining talent, which can be dangerous, understand the system that a particular player is used to playing in.  Someone who playing their career in a slow down half court set is not going to gel with a player that played in an up tempo fast break offense.  Putting together "big names" doesn't translate into great teams.  Generally whoever your first pick is will determine the rest of your picks that you are building around them.

more to come later, Carry on.

My Broncos Draft

How I would of made the picks.  Everyone does this to see how they would of changed their team, come back later and see how I would of done with this years draft class.

Round 1 ( 2nd overall ): Von Miller OLB Texas A&M
Round 2 ( 46th overall ): DaQuan Bowers DE Auburn
Round 2 ( 47th overall ): Stephen Paea DT Oregon State
Round 3 ( 67th overall ): Akeem Dent ILB Georgia
Round 4 ( 108th overall ): Casey Matthews ILB Oregon
Round 4 ( 129th overall ): Julius Thomas TE Portland State
Round 6 ( 189th overall ): Kieth Williams OG Nebraska
Round 7 ( 204th overall ): Derek Newton OT Arkansas State
Round 7 ( 247th overall ): Tommie Campbell FS California PA

Have to get defense early, and even thought Dareus would of been nice someone like Miller should be great to work with.  Plus two good D-Lineman are on the bard with 2nd rounders.  Something about Dent I think is going to translate well and between him and Matthews there should be a solid starer alongside Miller.  Knew Thomas was going to be picked, good risk / reward there.  Then go after the O-Linemen we need. 

Once football starts we'll see how they do, different teams and different situations are not the Denver situation but we've had some horredous drafts around here.  Hope that Elway and Co. is right and I am wrong.

Nugs Bowl Homepage

Attention ATMD Participants


What you may read might not be what you want to hear, and I am sorry for that.  But with the voting turnout being pathetic to say the least this current round and it's bound to only get worse it's time to put my "Contingency" plan into effect that I have been working on behind the scenes since the first game in this 2nd Round of Playoff action.  I came back to make the playoffs void of all agendas and bias.  Now as a Judge I can lower scores, I can call out certain voters but when we're down to about 5 real voters right now it's going to be the few that select a winner.  And I didn't want to put this into effect but drastic times call for drastic measures.  Again I apologize for not coming up with this before the playoffs even started but I guess I was being to much of an optimist to think that enough voters would remain.  And I couldn't just penalize people and dangle the next years ATMD list in front of them.  So, if you're still with me here's the "Contingency Plan" that I have come up with:

Nugs Bowl New Rules:


1. There will be a 4-panel non-participant, Judging Panel that will be the sole decision making method of picking the winners.  The panel consists of Myself, GoHornets, BMu, ChiTownCliff.

2. This panel does not give a vote like you've seen before broken down.  They all pm to me their decision.

3. The winners are not revealed until the round is completely over.

4. Since I could not get a fifth member on the panel in case of a tie, my vote will be counted as the tie-breaker.

Ok, let that sit for a moment, it's a lot to digest, I know. 

The rest of the contest stays the same.  Get gameplans into me noon before the night of the game.  Word limits, and so on.  But no longer do any of you have to vote.  Now, if you wish to come in and bash a team, feel free.  If you wish to attack someones gameplan tactic, no holds barred.  Doesn't matter.

This next part will be hurtfull to some of you, you either take the whole part or you are welcome to walk.  No suggestions, no changes, sorry.

Since I put this into effect during the first game of this 2nd Round I have had this panel Vote since then.  Some of you voiced concerns about bias, and agendas.  Well, I can assure you that this panel of 4 doesn't care which one of you wins, and picked the winner of these games trully based on the plans you put forth.  No more jockying participants to get their vote.  And why is this hurtfull to some of you, because this panel may of disagreed with the game that you thought you won.  And I will be revealing the matchups of the next round tomorrow in the current game that is up.  It's different than what you think it is based on the participant votes in the games.

Nugs Bowl, it is now what it is.  It will stay this way until we get a winner.  We have 4 people who know quite a bit about the history of basketball doing this for you.  If you don't trust us, then walk.  If you have a problem with a single part of this, then sorry, walk.  It's how it has to be, and it's how it will be with or without you.

If you wish to take on the contest the way it's been, I understand, the 4 Judges will wish you all the luck and that's the end of the line for us.

If you need to think about if you wish to be part of it, that's fine.  I am posting this now and then probably won't be back until either late tonight or tomorrow morning.  This contest is strong, this contest will be void of agendas, and this contest will pick a trully great winner that will be proud, no matter what anyone thinks of that person. 

Learn it, live it, and deal with it....Carry on...Cool
