How come you never see our teams draft board after the draft is over?

Recommended Posts

I was watching the video by the Bills where they are all in the war room and their board is digitally behind them. I start thinking to myself we never see anything like this Panther related.. I have seen Cowboys post draft board but Never anything close to that here. Many hardcore draft nuts like myself would love to know what the teams train of thought was post draft.

Panthers said they had Grier as their number one qb the entire draft, bs prove it... you had a first round grade on Greg little? Show us. I and many others would just like to know how you felt about some of our favorite players Rashan Gary was he considered? Sweat? What about Alderly in the second round? Did you guys even consider a Safety? I don’t see the harm in showing the fans after it’s all said and done. What day you...

As a fan, I'd love to know myself but what is to be gained from the team's perspective by having it publicly revealed?

I can see why you wouldn’t want other teams to see your board and analyze possible tendencies.  But hell, it’s not like we didn’t Telegraph the snot out of Burns, Little, and Grier anyway.  It’s like we had billboards up for the guys we wanted.

1b. Little

1c. Grier

2. Miller

3. That guy we saw at Oklahoma

4. Play it by ear now

That's the ingredient for even more moronic posts on the huddle. No thanks.

Its better to tell the guys you drafted "you were the guy we always wanted", "we had a first round grade on you", and build up their confidence then let them see "man, they didn't really want me.  I was just leftovers".

I imagine it would do nothing but provide transparency between fans and the front office.. to prove they had a plan, also just sheer fan fair.. more chatter back and forth between your community can’t do anything but be good for the team right?

Everyone is left overs tho.. you think all the teams behind bosa wanted another pass rusher other than him?

Yeah, no. Imagine you’re considering 6 different girls to date. So you make a pros cons list to rank them. Your top two choices get taken before you can make your move. Then you start dating one and show them where they landed on the list...

While I am sure within certain frames people know that.  But lets say Burns was taken before, and we picked Little (or any other OLine in the first round).

"Hey, we didn't REALLY want you at that point.  You were like Plan B if the 3-4 other guys we really wanted that we thought we could get were all gone"

It also gives the other teams a lot more insight into your internal thought processes when making that draft board. That may or may not matter depending on your philosophies regarding the draft, but given the amount of poker playing that leads up to the draft, it's pretty safe to say that teams try to keep as much of it as close to the vest as they possibly can.

I also don't think it's necessarily a good thing for your new rookies to see where they ranked on your wish list. Better to just tell them you were their guy, you had them rated much higher, yadda, yadda, yadda rather than have them see that you were their 11th choice at that position. Maybe that would light a fire under some, maybe it would make others think that you settled for them and aren't really vested in them.

I just don't see any consistently positive outcomes for having that internal draft board becoming public knowledge.

Yep, I made a post about a month prior to the draft that I was a concerned that we were making our interest in Burns a little TOO obvious.

I think anyone other than Burns is already the other chick that you didn’t want. If we passed on you say 5 times and then we pick you.. aren’t you already kind of plan F or so?
