    Default Draft Rewind-Best and Worst Picks

    Feeling a little withdrawal, figured I would start this up: My best picks are based on NCAA performance since that is what matters most. In some instances I included guys who had a better all around season if I felt it was warranted. My worst picks are mostly guys that got injured or redshirted.

    Round 1

    Best Pick-David Taylor(Lost)-Won everything there is to win and just about single handedly won the NCAA's for Lost

    Worst Pick-Cayle Byers(MOJO)-Lot to give up for a 3rd place finisher who missed a lot of the season.

    Interesting note-Of the 14 picks in Round 1, 12 were finalists(Flores and Byers were not)

    Round 2

    Best Pick-Steiber(Grips)-NCAA champ, Big Ten Champ scores bonus

    Worst Picks-Scotti Sentes(Dutch)/Andrew Alton(TLV)-Both guys Redshirted which is a killer this high in the draft

    Round 3

    Best Picks-Bosak(Grips)/Nelson(TLV)-Both were NCAA Champs and had several guys in their weights picked ahead of them

    Worst Pick-Jason Chamberlain(Gofer)-Redshirts and back-up didn't provide much help

    Round 4

    Best Pick-Dylan Ness(Lost)-NCAA Runner-up who scored a lot of bonus throughout the year.

    Worst Pick-Scott Winston(Grips)-Missed time during the season and another disappointing NCAA performance. Makes me wonder if he will ever AA.

    Round 5

    Best Pick-Bekzod Abdurakhmanov(Payton)-3rd at NCAA's and a bonus machine during the season

    Worst Pick-Zac Thomusseit(Wiltz)-Competed in 5 matches

    Round 6

    Best Pick-Matt Wilps(Grips)-Wins the EWL over Honeycutt and places 4th in the NCAA's

    Worst Pick-Kyven Gadson(Zapp)-Competed in one match

    Round 7

    Best Pick-Nico Megaludis(MOJO)-Strictly based on NCAA performance, but for the entire season I would give the nod to Maple(Lost)

    Worst Pick-Chris Spangler(TLV)-Missed most of the season and was not able to compete at NCAA's

    Round 8

    Best Pick-Bobby Telford(Zapp)-5th at NCAA's and was a good point scorer during the season

    Worst Pick-Jason Lara(MOJO)-Did not compete for OSU this year

    Round 9

    Best Pick-Trotman(Dutch)-Had the most wins of any 184 during the season and finished 3rd at the NCAA's, beating the 1, 2, and 3 seeds. I will admit, didn't see it coming!!!!

    Worst Pick-Wolfensberger(Gofer)-Redshirts

    Round 10

    Best Pick-Vinson(Payton)-Bonus point machine during the year and wins 7 matches, mostly with bonus on his way back to 3rd at the NCAA's

    Worst Pick-Benefiel(Zapp)-Did not compete

    Interesting note-This round included-Vinson-3rd, Marion-2nd, McMullan-3rd

    Round 11

    Best Pick-Hunter Steiber(Lost)-Another steal for Lost, places 6th at NCAA's, only guy to beat Russell, just a solid pick up

    Worst Pick-Jantzen(Trusty)-Hurt most the season and Inj Def's out of the NCAA's

    Interesting note-The best pick of next year's draft may be in this round if Kilgore goes on to win another title next year for Dutch!

    Round 12

    Best Pick-Carter(Jensen)-Scores a ton of bonus, finishes 5th, great prospect keeper!

    Worst Pick-Nelson/Johnston-Did not compete

    Round 13

    Best Pick-Ramos(Zapp)-3rd place at NCAA's, runner-up at Big Tens, solid scorer and keeper

    Worst Picks-Dunnett(Dart)-Only two wins on the season

    Round 14

    Best Pick-Kyle Blevins(Zapp)-Solid scorer all year who surprises with a 4th place finish

    Worst Pick-Macchiaroli(Jensen)-See all of the above

    Round 15

    Best Pick-McCormick(Dutch)-After the terrible pick in the 2nd round, McCormick was more than serviceable as the second to last pick in the draft

    Worst Pick-Too many to count

    Just my thoughts, feel free to rip them to shreds!

    If he only had DT, he would have finished last...needed a couple other guys to put him over the top!

    What can I say, big boy picks pay off sometimes ^_^

    I was on the DT bandwagon hard and I took him very early last year when he was completely unproven. I think he has been the highest point scorer two years in a row now (could be wrong on that)
    Gold is an idiot.

    It is literally impossible to score as many points as DT did , while wrestling alone , his ''gift '' points put you over the top.

    I honestly dont understand why this league allows DT to be on a team. Im trying to get Gold to ban him for next year. Lost you have no shame.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Vais,
    In your league the OW gets 3 points and Gregarian 2 points . So a total of 5 points for actual wrestling awards . DT scored 15 points from the press.

    You can't keep a guy two years in a row correct?

    If we were to do best/worst trades, I have a couple duds
