As the draft gets ready to begin, here are the tiers I’m placing defensive players into for the first round. I went pretty deep because I think there’s a decent chance that they trade back into the bottom of first – especially if they patiently wait for a good player to drop at 14 (like I believe they should).
I’ll be happy with anyone from the first two tiers at 14. If they could move back into the 1st and get someone from tier 3, I’d be ecstatic. Tier 4 would be ok if the price is right, but I think (hope) they can get someone from tier 4 or 5 in round 2.
Let the wild rumpus begin!
