There are four areas of need for the FINS: NT, FS, WR, and OLB.
The FINS can address those needs respectively by using a first round pick on that particular player. Sometimes the player you want is selected by the teams before you so you go to the next player on your board at that position or you look at a totally different position.
I'd like to explore the possible draft scenarios in a March Madness Bracket style enumeration of the possibilities.
We have four regionals called the NT regional (nose tackle picked in the first round), the WR regional (WR chosen in first round), the FS regional (FS chosen in the first round), and the OLB regional (OLB chosen in the first round).
I will assume that once a WR is picked in the first round, then the remaining 3 picks will be used to address the other areas of need. That means 6 possible ways to fill the remaining FS, NT, and OLB.
Please vote on which combination of players is the best draft while addressing the four areas of need. The draft sequence of players that receives the most votes will WIN the regional and advance to the final four for the vote.
I will do this for the permutations of the FS regional and the OLB regional. The four winners will go head to head in the FINAL FOUR.
Link to the NT-regional (in case you missed it).
It is just a fun way to look at possible draft scenarios (For example, looking for an OLB in the second round, but Jerry Hughes goes off the board...what do you do? Is it worth it to take Ricky Sapp or go a different direction?)
WR-regional: Assuming the FINS take a WR with the first pick, the best value sequence is...
Dez Bryant WR - Jerry Hughes OLB - Linval Joseph NT - Robert Johnson FS (46 votes)
Dez Bryant WR - Terrence Cody NT - Morgan Burnett FS - Adrian Tracy OLB (23 votes)
Golden Tate WR - Cam Thomas NT - Koa Miisi OLB - Kurt Coleman FS (6 votes)
Golden Tate WR - Ricky Sapp OLB - Darrell Stuckey FS - Kade Weston NT (3 votes)
Arrelious Benn WR - Nate Allen FS - Jermaine Cunningham OLB - Jay Ross NT (2 votes)
Arrelious Benn WR - Major Wright FS - Torrell Troup NT - Arthur Moats OLB (8 votes)
