It’s 5 o’clock somewhere…

The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

There are a lot of dedicated NFL websites that offer draft rankings. One of my favorite websites for information about NFL teams and players is Our Lads. The Draft Rankings that follow come from their website.

Here’s the challenge:

There are 14 ranked positions listed in this post.

  1. Put together your best “team” of 14 players (one of each position)
  2. You get a total of 14 picks:
  • 2 picks in each of the top 4 rounds (8 picks total)
  • 1 pick in each round from 5 to 10 (6 picks total)

Each player can ONLY be selected in the position (round) that he is listed by Our Lads. For example, Baker Mayfield, Saquon Barkley and Calvin Ridley can only be taken in Round 1, while Darnold, Penny and James Washington can only be taken in Round 3.

Here’s a sample of what an OUR LADS DRAFT might look like:

===========================================================

R1 Saquon Barkley RB

R1 Quenton Nelson G

R2 Josh Rosen QB

R2 Da’Ron Payne DT

R3 James Washington WR

R3 Godwin Igwebuike SS

R4 Leighton Vander Esch OLB

R4 Isaiah Oliver CB

R5 Christopher Herndon TE

R6 Rasheem Green DE

R7 Chukwuma Okorafor OT

R8 Terrell Edmunds FS

R9 Austin Golson C
