Official Mock #10 - "Perfect Huddle" scoring - 12 Teams
David M. Dorey
August 19, 2004

This draft was conducted from August 12th to August 17th and considered the Perfect Huddle scoring system.

For more information on Perfect Huddle scoring, review the rules here or read the article from 2003.

Basically, the scoring strives to make position more equal and defenses as more likely liabilities than point scorers.

The 18 rounds were for a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, PK and DEF.

Using the Perfect Huddle results in a much different draft, particularly in the early rounds since other positions are elevated in their scoring up to the level of QB and RB (or at least almost). For example, in 2003 the top 30 scorers included: 14 QB, 6 RB, 7 WR and 3 WR. QB's are usually a bit more valuable and that is appropriate given the importance of the position. Where this system is most different is the more equal footing that WR's and TE's have with RB's.

In the top 100 from last year, this was the breakdown: 27 QB, 21 RB, 34 WR, 17 TE, 1 PK. Building a balanced team is critical in this scoring system. If you load up on RB's and delay QB and WR - you would not likely be competitive. Another critical element is that defenses for the season ranged from 70 points (NE) to (-138) points for Atlanta. Only nine defenses managed to end with a positive score. The average defense would result in about a 3 or 4 point loss for the week.

The grading will reflect that most drafters were not familiar with the scoring as you will observe. This scoring places a premium on those balanced teams with top dogs in every position.

Resulting Teams

Draft Slot #1
5 Round Strategy: RB, WR, WR, TE, RB

Went with Priest to start and then picked up Ward and Moulds for a nice trio. Scooped up Alge Crumpler to maintain solid TE points before grabbing Stephen Davis as his RB2 in the 5th round. This alone should be an indicator of the difference this scoring produces.

Ended up a little weak at QB with Pennington but should be fine with Holmes and Davis at RB. First two WR's were gems and Morgan, Ferguson and Thompson should produce at least one good receiver a week if he can figure out which one correctly. Crumpler and DAL will be an advantage and Longwell solid. Overall, this is a solid team and pretty well balanced but the depth in most positions are not likely to be much help.

Starters: Pennington, Holmes, S Davis, Ward, Moulds, Morgan, Crumpler, Longwell and DAL

Draft Slot #2
5 Round Strategy: RB, RB, WR, QB, WR

Tomlinson was a good choice but the selection of Rudi Johnson at 2.11 bypassed other positions that would score more points. Finally got a WR with the 3.02 and then followed that with Favre and Jimmy Smith.

The drafter was not accustomed to the scoring system since he started out as a normal performance scoring way. His recovery picked up some nice upside in Gates and a calculated risk in Boldin but the PK and DEF will not be a difference maker. In this scoring, the perfect team would have #1 players in every position and this effort only netted LT as a true big play guy. There is not a lot of upside, at least very likely, on most of the backups

Draft Slot #3
5 Round Strategy: RB, QB, WR, TE, RB

This team adhered to the values of players pretty well with only maybe one or two missteps. After Ahman Green, Grabbed Hasselbeck who was a steal at the 2.10 (he was the 8th highest scorer last year) and then took Mason followed by Randy McMichael which in this scoring was a nice pick as well at the 4.10 Found his RB2 with Bennett at the 5.03

Ended up with a pretty solid team - Hasselbeck, Green and Wilkins are tops in their positions and at least solid players came in as backups. Could have done better by waiting on RB3 and taking a starter at the 7.03. This scoring means you need to focus on those starting points first since so they score fairly similarly between positions. There is far less advantage to a nice RB3 when he simply will not score well enough to equate to a WR3. Receivers are a little weak but pretty solid everywhere else.

Starters: Hasselbeck, A Green, Bennett, Mason, Wayne, Kennison, McMichael, Wilkins and GB

Took Portis at the 1.04 which is great in a normal draft but lost on the drafters this early is that Randy Moss outscored every RB last year (5 points better than Holmes). Moss scored 103 more points than Portis did. Top players in each position really make a difference.

Went for nice value in Heap at the 2.09 who actually scored a little more than Portis did in 2003. Could not resist Dillon at the 3.04 but probably missed an opportunity to pick up a higher scoring QB or WR. Has Toomer and Booker in the 5th and made a great pick of the Patriots in the 6th.

Ended up with weak QB's which will hurt given their value but solid RB's with upside on Bell, Griffin and McGahee. Receivers are okay with Toomer, Booker and McCareins but will not make a difference. Heaps and NE helps this team a good bit and may prove the saving grace for ignoring QB until the 7th round and buying too many RB's early.

Went with Alexander at the 1.05 and then Chad Johnson as a nice pick-up at the 2.08. Felt the need for an RB at the 3.05 and went with Faulk though he failed to get Jackson later on. Andre Johnson was a very nice pickup in the 4th and Brooks in the 5th is a steal in this scoring. He was the 12th highest scorer in 2003.

This team actually carries some punch even without the top players you'd like to see. Solid at QB, could have problems with the RB's but that does not hurt as badly in this scoring. WR's a very nice with upside on Fitzgerald and Woods (though Woods is sliding these days). Elam and TEN should be at least average and two big upside TE's in Dallas Clark and Witten. Pretty balanced but weak at RB and not much pizzazz at any position

Still ignoring high scoring Moss, team went with McAllister and then grabbed McNabb at the 2.07. Nice pick in the 3rd with Shockey and then mined WR's to get Walker, Price and Bruce. Good pick of CAR in the 9th.

Ended up with some nice players for RB and WR and McNabb should be no less than solid at QB with a chance to be a top 10 overall scorer. This team was pretty balanced and has some nice depth in most positions. Other than passing on Moss or a QB in the 1st round, team filled in with good values. Waiting until the 7th to get Chris Brown likely does not hurt him at all and Buckhalter and Dayne as backups are nice. Jumping to different positions in the first four picks nabbed some top difference makers.

Starters: McNabb, McAllister, C Brown, Walker, Price, Bruce, Shockey, Kasay and CAR.

Finally, someone noticed Moss and took him. Starting three receivers and the #3 overall scorer should not last until the 7th pick.

Went with Barlow at RB1 and then took Winslow in a gamble play at the 3.07 and missed Shockey by only one pick. Then managed to find Chambers before making Martin is RB2.

Ended up with a tremendous value pick with Trent Green in the 6th and TB and JAX are two very nice defenses to mix and match. Team is weak at WR3 and made an error in getting Kleinsasser as TE3 when WR3 and backups were weak. Blended solid picks like Green, Martin, Moss and Chambers with some calculated risks like Barlow and Winslow. should be no less than average and could be well above if Barlow and Winslow show up big this year.

Starters: Green, Barlow, Martin, Moss, Chambers, Galloway, Winslow, Vinatieri and TB.

Draft Slot #8
5 Round Strategy: RB, WR, QB, TE, RB

Could not resist RB1 as James in the 1st round but then went after value in a nice way. Took Owens and McNair with Boo Williams in the 4.05 for some strength in the big scoring positions. RB2 became Kevin Jones but WR2 of Porter was weaker than desired - caused by taking other positions through the first 5 rounds.

Not unlike team #7, this team went for some nice balance and achieved a solid team. Very solid at DT, PK, TE and QB, a little weaker at RB and WR other than Owens. Nice upside on most the backups. The main difference in this team and team #8 was that team #7 got a steal with Trent Green late while McNair at the 3.08 was merely an appropriate pick.

Starters: McNair, James, K Jones, Owens, Porter, R Smith, B Williams, Akers and MIA

Draft Slot #9
5 Round Strategy: RB, QB, WR, WR, RB

Started with Fred Taylor which was not the best choice but rebounded with Manning at the 2.04 - #2 scorer in 2003 in this scoring system. Took Coles and Smith with the next two picks which was very strong but settled for George as RB2 with the 5.09 pick which could have been K Robinson or Burress for a stronger WR corps and not paid a big price at RB2 for it.

Waited so long on TE, PK and DEF that the three were all below average which hurts more in this scoring. QB and WR are strong but the rest of the positions won't make much difference in this scoring. Using 8th and 9th for RB3 and RB4 does not make as much sense in this scoring.

Starters: Manning, Taylor, George, Coles, S Smith, Warrick, F Jones, Janikowski and PIT

Draft Slot #10
5 Round Strategy: RB, QB, WR, RB, WR

This team took Jamal Lewis with the 1.10 which was starting out with the 9th best RB instead of top players at all the other positions. Did grab Culpepper and then Horn for a good start but couldn't resist taking Henry at the 4.03. Doubled up to get K Robinson and Lelie for a good trio of receivers with Horn.

This team actually got away with using a standard performance approach to the Perfect Huddle scoring league. His TE's are weak but has upside to Pollard and L.J. Smith. Brady as QB2 was a nice pick in the 8th and his WR's are all capable of good years with some breaks. Will need for some players to exceed expectations to be a top contender but ended up with at least an average team and likely an above average one, saved by some of the backup picks that were made.

Draft Slot #11
5 Round Strategy: WR, RB, WR, QB, RB

In the Perfect Huddle, some of the best drafting slots are not the #1 and #2, but instead the #11 and #12 since they can access two top stars.

This team grabbed one with Holt but felt the need to take Domanick Davis. Followed that with D Jackson and then Bulger before the QB's got too thin. Went back for RB2 with Westbrook and then a nice string of upsiders in Rogers, Kinney and the NE defense.

This created one of the better teams. Solid at WR, TE, PK and DEF with at least good QB and RB. Pretty good use of the slot to take impact players in this scoring system. If this had a better RB2 and TE, it would be a definite contender. Backup RB's are all "iffy" and could be a hole in a week that they are needed.

Starters: Bulger, D Davis, Westbrook, Holt, Jackson, Rogers, Kinney, Stover and BAL.

Draft Slot #12
5 Round Strategy: TE, WR, QB, RB, RB

This team used the scoring system for value.

Started with Gonzalez as one of the top overall scorers, then Harrison and Vick in the 3rd. No RB yet but three top players in their position. Went with Barber and Thomas next and should have some upside with Thomas. Followed that with Burress and Branch.

Took a top defense in STL, top kicker in Vanderjagt, Top TE in Gonzo, Top WR in Harrison, Top QB in Vick. His only weakness is at RB but that does not hurt in this scoring. Thomas could surprise and Dunn offers a just in case RB3. Drafting at the back end, this was about as good as you can do.

Starters: Vick, Barber, T Jones, Harrison, Burress, Branch, Gonzalez, Vanderjagt and STL.
