The Outlaws roster looks pretty good until you look at the contract situation. Apart from Reggie Nelson and Adam Podlesh, everybody on the team is either going to be a free agent or only has one year left.

So the strategy was to grab current starting rookies where I could and potential studs where I couldn't. In particular, I sought to stop some of the bleeding on defense, which I think went very well.

1 (22) Desmond Trufant, CB- I was torn between him and DeAndre Hopkins at this spot, but I decided that CB was in more dire straits. I've got Jordy Nelson still hanging around for another year. Trufant has already demonstrated awesome potential as a starting CB for the Falcons, so I'm more than happy here.

2 (45) Jon Bostic, LB- I'll see if I can't get away with keeping him on the bench for a year before making him the MLB of the future. I was extremely happy with this selection.

3 (69) Damontre Moore, DE- Not a position of need at all, but I didn't see too many current starting rookies left at this point to warrant going another direction. The Giants apparently think Moore is the next great pass-rushing stud, so that simply can not be passed up.

4 (93) Will Davis, CB- Ehh. This was the thing where my draft board was messed up. I needed more CB depth, so it's fine. Maybe I'll be able to let Antoine Cason walk in the 2014 offseason and let Davis take his spot on the roster

5 (117) 6 (141) 7 (165) Traded to Pompano Beach Pandas for Chris Givens and 7 (159)- I noticed at this point that I had missed out on some pretty good WRs. Terrence Williams was going to be the pick in the 4th round, so I was still without some desperately needed WR depth. Givens has 3 years left on his contract, so that at least gives me some peace of mind going into next season when I'll have to make some brutal roster decisions on who to keep and who to let go. Pandas also finally gets some draft picks to work with.

7 (159) Oday Aboushi, G- Gotta take offensive line help wherever I can get it at this point. He's talented enough that I think he can possibly put himself in line for a starting job with the Jets in 2014. That will help me out a bit at least, when Marshall Yanda and Carl Nicks both become free agents
I think Will Davis is a good pick in that round.

I liked Damontre Moore, but haven't found a way to draft him. I either didn't have need at DE or I had worse needs than DE when he was coming up.
