I barely watch college football, and pay moderate attention to the draft. After the first two rounds I’ll recognize less than 10% of the players that are drafted, but I usually have a strong preference of guys I’d like to target in the first two rounds based on high-impact positions (i.e. quarterback, defensive line, offensive line, wide receivers, secondary)
It got me thinking - how would my drafts compare to Bob Quinn’s? Given I spend about five casual hours a year in “draft prep,” Quinn should be able to outperform me, no?
I looked back at the past five years based on my best recollection and who was left on the board when our picks came to compare the results:
Me: Okudah, Antoine Winfield Jr.
BQ: Okudah, DeAndre Swift
Me: Ed Oliver, Greedy Williams
BQ: Hockenson, Tavai
Me: Calvin Ridley, Dallas Goedert
BQ: Frank Ragnow, Kerryon Johnson
Me: Jabril Peppers, JuJu Smith Shuster
BQ: Jarrad Davis, Teez Tabor!
Me: Taylor Decker, Mackensie Alexander
BQ: Taylor Decker, A’Shawn Robinson
It’s sad. My drafts aren’t great but they are probably better than Quinn’s. It’s just not acceptable.
