Dubsism

What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The Dubsism “Anti-Kiper” 2012 NFL Draft Board

Now that we are finally past the Super Bowl, it is time to address the needs of your team heading into the NFL Draft. So, while you are spending today erasing that fog in your head made of far too much cheap beer and delivery pizza, take a few moments to look forward so that your team can give itself a better shot to be where the Giants find themselves today.

Everybody has a NFL Draft “Big Board.” But unlike the ones you  get from the “professionals” at ESPN, we here at Dubsism offer a draft board based on the fact we actually have watched college football at some point in our lifetimes. This means we don’t care about how much we love to hear our own bloviation, there isn’t another blog out there taking shots at us yet (so we don’t have that whole “Mel Kiper/Todd McShay thing happening), and we aren’t worried about how much face time our increasingly oddly-shaped pompadour gets.

Rather, we would rather put out rookie  draft “shopping list” that we feel is our best effort to help you, the NFL fan who knows almost nothing about college football beyond Andrew Luck. We also won’t give you any flowery summaries of these players; there’s eight billion other sites doing that. Our model is you peruse the lists, both overall and by position, and decide which of these guys may help plug the numerous holes your favorite team has. However, we don’t bother with kickers and punters, largely because they are literally a “dime-a-dozen” and if you think a kicker is all that separates your team from a Super Bowl, you likely need a psychiatrist more than a draft board.

After the Super Bowl, we will revisit this list with some advice on what your sorry-ass team needs to do in order to improve itself, and this board will play a large part in that counsel. The one thing I would caution you against is that we here at Dubsism are firm believers in the “Mike Mamula” rule; meaning we don’t put much stock in the witchcraft that are the NFL Combines, so don’t expect this board to change significantly.

    Your list is better than mine, since I don’t watch a whole lot of College Football…

      True, but I also whiffed big time last year on Cam Newton.

    The Eagles need a linebacker and should part ways with Castillo. The Vikings are a clusterfuck of problems. I’d like them to get the best CB or S in the draft. Even move down and get better then average at both would be good. I know they could use a Matt Kalil, but that defensive secondary was hard to watch last year.

      I agree with you on Philly and Castillo. As an Eagle fan, I was never a Vick or Kolb fan, and Vince Young doesn’t exactly cure that for me. But I’m not sold on any of the QBs coming out after Luck and RG3.

      But just wait…the “what your team needs to do with it’s pick” post is coming soon…

  4. I think you’ll probably see Blackmon go before Jeffery and with the number five pick, I’d be perfectly happy to see the Bucs sweep him up.

As a Philadelphia Eagles fan. I think I'm taking the Carson Wentz injury in a rational manner... GO NAVY! BEAT ARMY! Watching a Cheap Trick concert. Rick Nielsen's guitar for the win.
