First-Pick NFL Draft Game


 

As I often do, I recently browsed the internet for the latest Mock Draft for the Miami Dolphins.  It is fun for me to see the differences between mocks pre-NFL Free Agency, and post NFL FA.  While FA is not over and the Dolphins have recently hosted RB Knowshon Moreno (who left without a contract), it appears as though things have cooled down and the Dolphins will now turn to the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft for their next new players.  One of the sites I came across while browsing was First-Pick, an interactive Mock Draft site that features a game called the NFL Draft Game via www.first-pick.com.  After a breezy registration (it literally took me 15 seconds), I was the new General Manager of the Miami Dolphins.

It was a technological dream come true.

After selecting what team you would like to draft for, the game lists the picks for your team and gives you options like watching other teams pick or skipping to your pick.  Everything is extremely accurate, and the game allows you to see your team’s needs and a list of players for each need, including their school and projected day in which they will be drafted.

Perhaps the coolest part of the site is that it enables you to have full control of the draft, and even lets you  make trades with other teams or giving up or receiving future draft picks.  After you are done drafting, the game gives you a complete list of your picks. gives you your drafting score (for example an A-), and a relative placement to the other 31 teams.

I really enjoyed playing the NFL Draft Game, which can be found here.  I will be posting my results from my mock draft on the game for the Miami Dolphins in an upcoming article.

FINS UP!

    PLEASE SIGN RT ERIK WINSTON!!!! This will make me feel a lot better knowing we got RT LOCKED DOWN for the next 3 years… Guards are a lot easier to find then good RT.. (Winston was the best overall Tackle in the NFL last year)… If we can sign him, the Phins can be alittle for flex able with their 1st round pick… If they don’t get Winston.. Then the obvious pick will be T/G Zach Martin at #19.. But if we can land Winston… Maybe we can go with a guy like Ebron, who’s the #1 TE in the draft.(that’s if he drops to #19).. Giving RT17 a big weapon and he will also compliment Clay.. He can do a lot for this Offense!!! Get on the phone Hickey!!!

      I like Ebron a lot too, but I think the JEts would take him one spot before us if he still available at 18. Winston is a good option, and would be cheap, but I think Miami’s administration is worried about his age. I think you are right though.

        He’s a young 30… Younger then Clabo and McKinnie… But he’s solid.. Almost got him last year…(Should have got him last year).. He had a great season in Zona…And a leader, which is something this team can use… But yeh, Ebron won’t get past the stinking Jets… It really sucks that 5 teams are 8-8 and we pick last of the 8-8 teams… (Schedule strength).

    I really wish Steve Ross would keep his big mouth shut!!! He just said he’s “not worried about the OLine, we will get a Right Tackle in the draft”… What an idiot.. And don’t forget him calling Chadd Henne the next Marino!!! He doesn’t know anything about NFL football… And thanks for telling the other 31 teams what you “think” your teams plans are in the upcoming Draft..
