21 Quick Draft Tips

Quick, last-minute draft tips from the Footballguys staff

The season starts next week, so it is crunch time. That means you are probably drafting this weekend. Hopefully, you've done loads of research and are completely ready. If not -- and even if you are -- here are some last-minute tips from our staff for you before you start your draft.

Use the Draft Dominator. At the very least, it makes it super easy to track your draft and the other teams around you. At the very most (if that's not a real phrase, it should be), it's the most-powerful drafting tool available and will allow you to have the best team possible.

When using the Draft Dominator to run mocks (which can be completed in minutes), try mocking from multiple draft spots. This will give you a different perspective and align you with different players, which will improve your research. That way, if a player unexpectedly falls to you (based on rankings or ADP), you will have an informed opinion about him.

Remember this is YOUR team. Sifting down the player pool to your target players and centering your draft decisions on said players is an outstanding way to love the end result. Take a player a round or two early or stockpile a little more at a given position (within reason), everything looks better when your roster fits your vision.

Clayton Gray

Don't draft players who aren't currently on an NFL team. In most deeper drafts, guys like Jay Ajayi are being taken. While there's always a chance he'll sign somewhere and contribute, it's far more likely that he's not on a team right now simply because he's not good enough anymore.
