With the 19th pick in the draft.. the Pats get LT Oshinowo

I'm floored. He's always gone in the first five picks. I got
Oshinowo at #19! (For those who don't know, he's the 98 OVR LT at 7' 370#)

Anyone else ever seen a can not miss Future 50 prospect go so low?

I guess O-Line was a non-need for all the teams in this draft. I could have had my pick of 90+ rated O-line guys (and these aren't sleepers, these are guys rated that high coming out of college) in round 2 or 3 as well. The only other O-Line pick in the first round was guard D. Lilly at #30.

They may not be future 50 players but I have seen Jake Long and Chris Long both drop down in the the early 10s on separate drafts. Both times I traded up to grab them because I did not want to risk seeing someone else grab them lol

I was really tempted to save and see how far he would have fallen but I was pressed for time and wanted to finish the draft.

I actually drafted Oshinowo #16 in my draft. I kept watching the "Pick the Pick" tab and no one came up with a OT so I didnt try to trade up and he fell to me. I was very suprised as well. Ive seen RB Ozzie Jones get drafted at #30 as well.

The part I couldn't get over was Oshinowo was the #1 or #2 guy on most of the "Pick the Picks" for teams ahead of me. When he went off the board he was the highest production guy left by ~6 points (I think he's rated 97 coming out).

I wish I could have gotten Oshinowo that low in my draft.
Spoiler


However, as I mentioned in the currently active Flash Gorden thread, I lucked out and had mega-LT's Javon Jackson and Selvin Lankford fall into my lap in back-to-back years. One year I was drafting at 13 and was focused on all the stellar linebackers in the English draft to rebuild my 3-4, when I began realizing that Jackson was sinking. I didn't want to move up, though, because picks are so precious in that draft - any one you give up could be a 90 POT player. So I sat still. At #12, the Vikings grabbed my #1 guy Mack "Truck" Jackson, so I didn't hesitate to grab the Future 50 Jackson. Fast forward one year: my highest pick is my first round pick at the end of the round, but I'm loaded with picks and players on the block. There were several players I was hoping to deal into the top 10 for, but each top 10 team was having none of it. Gradually I began realizing that Lankford, who wasn't a target because I got Jackson the year before and still had Chris Samuels, was falling like a rock. I hadn't fully scouted him so I was a bit scared that he might be a bust, but I knew he had insane athleticism from his combine workout. The teams at 11 and 12 were the first to take my calls, but I didn't want to give up what they wanted. And Lankford keeps slipping. Finally I make it through and deal up to 13.
