Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane mentioned on the Pardon My Take podcast this week that if weren’t for fans creating a website called DraftJoshAllen.com, that he would not have drafted the quarterback out of Wyoming in 2018. The retro website lists all the reasons that Allen should be the number one pick, including that he’s tall and that he looks good in shorts. That worked on Beane, so what would work on LA Rams GM Les Snead?
Or more importantly, who would you create a Netscape-style website for in 2020?
We know that the Rams don’t pick in the first round, let alone high enough in the “Allen range” (7th overall) to facilitate a strong connection between the team and any one player. It’s easier to know your campaign if you root for, say, the Giants and want them to take Isaiah Simmons. But the Rams don’t pick until 52 and 57 in the second round.
It doesn’t mean that there aren’t fan favorites though.
I know through reading the comments, fanposts, and articles that certain names are mentioned more than others. I’m going to put a poll in here but I encourage comments suggesting different names. For now, I’m pulling names from Sosa’s Big Board in the second round.
You can also nominate players not expected to go in the second round but that you’d prefer in round three or later.
Draft (WHO) Dot Com?
