Earlier this week, I posted a slideshow article showing off my "dream draft." The week ended with a challenge from my friends to let "the people" decide as to who was better.

Here's the link to my origninal article:


Now here's the link to my slideshow comparing picks one through five:


The slideshow comparing the remaining picks won't be available until tomorrow.

The motivation behind this was to see if the average Joe can out-draft his team's front office. Can the average fan justify booing a "bad pick"? When they boo, is it because they think they're smarter than the front office when it comes to drafting players?

Anyone who would dare compare their picks publicly must be a fool, an idiot, a moron!!!


This look like a job for me!

It's a simple task:  View the slideshows and vote.

Note concerning my draft: Thus far, all but one player were available for the Lions to pick. So for the most part, you can't use the "Those players were taken" defense.

So with that being said, have fun with it!
