We're joined by Greg Smith (@gregsauce), founder of, to complete a mock draft using our Draft Simulator. We begin by discussing two quarterback leagues and why they can be so much fun before diving into our mock draft (1:53). We set our mock drafts up to pick from the eighth slot in a 12-team league with rosters that include two quarterbacks, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one RB/WR/TE flex position and four bench slots (4:41). Our first round discussion involves passing on a quarterback to take a player like Julio Jones (5:47) or if Drew Brees at eighth overall is a worthy pick (7:40). The second round features players Lamar Miller (8:27) and LeVeon Bell (9:03). Greg mulls over his third round quarterback choices before he decides to take another running back in Mark Ingram (9:55). We agree on Demaryius Thomas' value in the fourth round (11:05) before moving on to the fifth round where we discuss players like Kirk Cousins (12:02), Thomas Rawls (12:23), Jonathan Stewart (12:47) and Tyrod Taylor (13:13). Bobby talks about why he likes Jordan Reed (14:10) before Greg satiates our love for Donte Moncrief and takes him in the sixth round (15:25). We have a hard time finding value in the seventh round, and we discuss if Jordan Matthews (17:00), Andy Dalton (17:34), Duke Johnson (17:46) and John Brown (18:26) are worth a pick. Eighth round discussion involves Josh Gordon (19:26) and Robert Griffin III (20:46). Greg tells us why he likes Michael Crabtree's value in the ninth round this year (22:21). In the tenth round Bobby considers quarterbacks before settling on Kevin White (23:20) while Greg decides on a running back and selects Chris Ivory (24:06). Greg takes Jay Cutler as his third quarterback and talks about why it's a high floor pick at this point in the draft (25:37) while Bobby selects Devin Funchess in the 11th round (26:53). In the twelfth round Greg takes another quarterback (27:13), and Bobby debates taking Blaine Gabbert or Teddy Bridgewater (28:21). We finish our drafts by discussing Dwayne Allen (29:16) and Michael Thomas (29:54) and then we compare our draft grades (30:31). Draft Wizard:
