RRR Draft Ranking and Analysis
As the regular season comes to an end, I'm releasing a draft ranking/analysis for the upcoming draft. The following is highly subjective, so YMMV based on draft position, risk appetite, and your teams specific needs, etc.

These rankings are by position or position group, as listed, but some players receive ranking for potential to be re-positioned. No data is provided here, but it can be provided upon request via PM to anyone with a supporter account.

QB
There's no top tier QB in this draft. Hoellwarth and Bill are worthy picks for those teams with immediate need. Baert and Hildbrunner are late round flyers.

1 Oliver Hoellwarth
2 Arassen Bill
3 Jerry Baert
4 Mahmud Hildbrunner


RB / FB
Running backs in this draft class lack necessary soft skills, but there are fullbacks that have this and the necessary raw talent in abundance that may be better picks.

1 Carlos Casas FB
2 Sammy Angus FB
3 Memnun Jabir FB
4 Agustín Casas RB
5 Sharif Mustafa RB
6 Jatak Charan RB
7 Jude Ujváry FB
8 Humaid Anand FB
9 Ettore Humar FB

WR / TE
Fiore and Messina are first round talent. Jaber and Cekanauskas are also potential starters. De Leeuw is the only TE worth speaking of, but not in the first round.

1 Michael Fiore WR
2 Isaia Messina WR
3 Sedat Jaber WR
4 Gytis Cekanauskas WR
5 Ensar Becher WR
6 Alexandre De Leeuw TE

OL
While there are several O-lineman who look to fit the archetype, our scouts don't think any of the players in this class lack the top-level teamwork required to succeed in the higher leagues. The few listed here are mid-tier talent that can fill in if no better options arise.

1 Ushindi Mensah
2 Ziare Sudha
3 Soyalp Gambarov
4 Ned Cardoza

DL
Kalinin will make an excellent DE pick in the first round. Torfason and Molina are decent mid to late first round DT picks. Molina may have the ability to switch to MLB if needed. Morrel is a good flex pick. The rest listed are decent mid to late round flyers.

1 Vladislav Kalinin
2 Ingi Torfason
3 Hugo Molina
4 Javier Morrell
5 H.-Dieter Hindler
6 Cyryl Flizikowski
7 Darik Gray

LB
Pegollo and Tan show great ability to play at MLB. Their age may knock them out of the top ten picks.

1 Crescenzo Pegollo
2 Tiloka Tan
3 Leonid Kartashov
4 Yu Hong
5 Hisham Iweala
6 Zende Iweala

CB
Jurkenas should go early. Others also fit the archetype well, but there seems to be a current abundance of players with raw speed as their only talent, so some players may go lower than otherwise expected.

1 Aistis Jurkenas
2 Gabriel Subram
3 Dilyorbek Shadrin
4 Witsanunat Pibul
5 Sri Khuntilanont
6 Lukas Kud?a

SF
Schmidt is the only player with the natural affinity for SF. It may be best to convert other players out and to look to convert other players in, if necessary.

1 Hans-Dieter Schmidt
2 Bimal Srini
3 Laudalino Albuquerque
4 Gundolf Herrmann
5 Calin Matei

ST
These three show potential for conversion. There are no kickers or punters worth picking outside the third round.

1 Alvin Taumua KR
2 Albert Van Schalwyn G
3 Vito Möller G

But how many teams aren't going to do their best week 1 by not using their MOTY?

Damn Tankers.

Yep, after arranging my own draft board, it was nice to compare it with your recap. Although I have almost the same ranking for each position, there is some minor differences, mainly because I put a lot emphasis on intelligence (so your No1 CB is only at No20 on my draft board).
