Mon May 03 06:33 PM

Taking out all the drama from draft day, Cheesehead Craig announced in an Instagram post that the Privateers will be taking WR Shaun Sanderson from Duke with the #1 overall pick. He's been compared to legendary WR Marcus Dole, which is reason enough to take him.

Cheesehead noted in the post that he too busy on draft day as he was going on a golf outing and quote "just wanted to get it over with as I have better things to do that day."

So there you have it folks. Looks like Darusmont has a legit weapon and with the new Spread offense the team is running next year, this was a much needed upgrade.

Congrats on getting your stud WR.

Also congrats to New Orleans for their new QB . . .

For Brooklyn:

WR Rickey Mitchell-14 seasons-drafted at the 2.1 pick in 2047 by Miami.
We only picked him up this year for leadership and mentoring but he helped our thin depth at WR.

S Alonzo Gima-13 seasons-drafted at the 3.31 pick in 2048 by Denver.
I always liked Gima since the draft. He received up a ring in 2059 with Honolulu against the Brawlers. Once again he only played his last year with Brooklyn and was picked up for the same reasons as Mitchell.

QB Corey Amadro-11 seasons-3.12 pick in 2050 by Baltimore.
Amadro was a little surprising. Brooklyn did not extend his contract and he was a free agent this year. I figured he would go one more year for some more money in free agency. We acquired him up a couple years ago because he was a mentor that was also a great backup in case of injuries.

RG Deron "Dagwood" Denson-9 seasons-1.27 pick in 2052.
Now Dagwood retiring was really surprising. We thought that our LT Page would be the one retiring. Brooklyn has a special place in their heart for Dagwood. He was originally drafted as a under-sized RT later moved to RG after drafting LT Johnson in 2057. His nicknamed stems from an "injury" he suffered his rookie year, Tobacco Withdrawal Syndrome. "Dagwood" was what my old college buddy and I would always call cigarettes, so it just fit Denson (not to mention the alliteration).

Great idea.

Just two guys we drafted and both became journeyman

G Jackson Penick 3.32 in 2051 - the definitive roadgrader had roughly a 100 run block -0 pass block tech -100 blocking strength bar profile and was either really dumb or really smart (can't remember) and paved many a lane for Fulton in his prime grabbing 3 All-Pros as he started his first 6 seasons for us. He gave up 6 sacks in our Bowl run in 2056 and then the patch was not kind to him. He finished his career in ACI still doing his thing. Always nice when you pick one of the common bar profiles and it just maxes out like that.

DE Floyd Norris picked 2.27 in 2049 - may have been the first FOF8 draft and I think we moved him from DT and he was that ideal LDE for our 43 Under at the time and figured Al Kelly and him would form a dominant duo upfront...but then we went 34 and he was a bit of a tweener and wanted a lot of money after his rookie contract was up but his bars held up for a long time at KCY and SCU and he was even picked up by DUR off waivers for a recent PO game. While never a top producer the talent was always there and we didn't track +- then but I bet he would have done very well.

Also praise be that Otis Perry finally hung them up. I think he picked us off 6 times in his first 4 years or something crazy like that.

For Detroit, two guys that spent their whole careers at La-Z-Boy:

TE Rico Voinovich - 3.18 in 2048 - For a while, DET's best receiving threat. Tapered off as he got older but was still a good blocker and a big body that could go up and get the 50/50 ball in the end zone. Ended his career with the #1 most receiving TDs and #2 most receiving yards records for a TE fueled in part by a crazy 2048 season where he caught 20 TDs! On top of several DET team records, Uncle Rico also picked up several league accolades with 3 All-League selections.

LG Shaquille Pascal - 1.13 in 2049 - A longtime fixture in the DET OLine, this guy had 9 straight seasons without missing a single game. He also became a team leader and mentor that will be hard to replace. In his prime, Shaq was one of the better runblockers in the league and the Vampires fielded one of the more efficient ground games in 2050-2054. We've been trying to get back there ever since. Hopefully he goes on to become a coach for us because we need some serious help on the OL.

Talons had 6 players retire this offseason. Actually surprised it wasn't more. Was expecting the whole interior DL to retire.

Otis Perry - 13 seasons - picked 1.8 in 2048. Otis will be the most missed out of the group. Fans were surprised he didn't retire last year but were glad he stayed for one more. He was originally drafted and played at S. But after seeing his superior man cover skills he was moved to CB in 2051. While Talons fans were thanking him for his career - Fargo's fans were celebrating he would no longer be on the field. He had 8 of his 50 career interceptions against Fargo and gave the Fargo coaching staff nightmares. Talons Ring of Honor member Louis LaGrange even mentioned Perry's retirement and wished him luck on his HOF selection in a few years and acknowledged the difficulty DBs have of getting into the HOF.

Corbin Robbins - 14 seasons - Long time Talons kicker retired. He retired as the top Talons scorer. Fans will have to get used to someone new kicking for the team this season.

Also a shout out to Rickey Mitchell retiring after 14 seasons. Drafted 2.1 in 2047. He had an immediate impact in the passing game as a rookie. He stayed with the Talons for 10 seasons before his contract demands didn't agree with management and they ended up parting ways. It often goes unnoticed but he was always a solid contributor on Special Teams.

WR - Blaine Curtis - 2048 24th pick overall

Blaine Curtis was one of those wide receivers that could do it all, catch, run, and return kicks. He spent his first 4 seasons with the Pride, but his contract demands were out of our ability to cover as we were also working on a huge contract for future HOF QB, Brantley Gilmore. Curtis spent 5 seasons with San Antonio and had to watch the Pride win a Bowl with Gilmore at the helm. When his contract was up with San Antonio, he looked like he was run hard and put away wet - there was little interest on the FA market for a washed up WR. However, the Pride remembered his explosive speed and open field moves and brought him back home to Shreveport. He spent the final 4 seasons of his career with the Pride filling in anywhere he could, showing that his work ethic hadn't diminished. He made it to the Conference Finals three times, but never got to the Bowl. In his final year, his role as punt returner was taken away from him as he'd started having issues fielding the punts. In his retirement press conference, he was complementary of both organizations he'd played for and cited advancing arthritis in his fingers as the reason for his retirement. He finished his career with 1003 receptions for 11,731 yards and 78 TDs, additionally contributing, 4123 yards on 407 punt returns with 10 punt returns for TD.
