MOCK DRAFT! Previewing Tomorrow's Inaugural Stool Streams Jenga Draft, Where the Quest For $10,000 Begins

Less than 24 hours to go! Tomorrow at 3 PM, it's the first ever Stool Streams Jenga Draft presented by High Noon Hard Seltzer. In case you missed it, we announced our 12 captains earlier this week in addition to the draft order. They are as follows...

1. Rangoon Wranglers (The Wonton Don)

2. Futbol Team (PFT Commenter)

3. ZARCH (Trent)

4. Goose Mode (Tommy Smokes)

5. Josh Duhamel (Kate)

6. Pubes (Feitelberg)

7. Da Chalk (Liz)

8. Pressed (Big Cat)

9. Berserkers (Billy or Brandon, other captains will vote them in)

10. Purple Hedgehogs (Ria)

11. Pubes II (Nick)

12. Muddah's Wake (Glenny Balls)

Yesterday, we shared Jeff D. Lowe's Big Board for the upcoming draft, with a familiar face at the top of the list:

Now, it's time to release Jeff D. Lowe's Mock Draft 1.0. This is who Jeff thinks will be taken at each specific spot, not because of where they are on the draft board, but instead predicting what will go through the mind of each captain when they are on the clock. Away we go…

1. Rangoon Wranglers (The Wonton Don)

Pick: Chef Donny

Jeff's Analysis: Familiarity is important in JENGA. With no money on the line, Donnie may look elsewhere, but he knows Chef Donny and is aware that he is one of the best competitor’s this game has seen. Despite an impossible last block loss, Donny’s skills have been the best we’ve seen inside Stool Streams stadium. 

2. Futbol Team (PFT Commenter)

Pick: Nate

Jeff's Analysis: A match made in heaven on the JENGA field for PFT Commenter. He gets a Washington D.C. ally and skilled JENGA competitor in Nate. No one has gone through the ringer of the wooden tower quite like Nate, as he has been through some of the longest matches in the sport’s history.

3. ZARCH (Trent)

Pick: Robbie Fox

Jeff's Analysis: This is a steal at number-three for Trent, who gets his roommate and friend but, more importantly, the slickest JENGA player we’ve seen. His record may not show it, but nobody is quicker and more efficient with critical decisions than Octagon Bob.

4. Goose Mode (Tommy Smokes)

Pick: Rudy

Jeff's Analysis: Playing with Tommy Smokes is a burden, but playing FOR Tommy Smokes is a whole different challenge that few can handle. Rudy, an NCAA Champion, is one of those men. With a losing record marred by controversy, some may argue Rudy should be the number-one ranked prospect.

5. Josh Duhamel (Kate)

Pick: Captain Cons

Jeff's Analysis: The theme of continuity continues as it only makes sense for Kate to go full-hardo and pick Cons. He’s been great in Stool Streams stadium and is a drinking games savant. There are few as competitive at Barstool Sports as the Captain himself. Kate will surely swallow her pride her and go with the Army man.

6. Pubes (Feitelberg)

Pick: KFC

Jeff's Analysis: Feits can play with literally anyone. No matter who his teammate is, Feits will transfer over his good vibes and energy. For the sake of a mock, though, let’s say he bypasses his friend Kayce and goes for the undefeated KFC.

7. Da Chalk (Liz)

Pick: Kayce

Jeff's Analysis: Liz is another one who has no issue playing with anyone. Arguably a Top 5 player, Liz is a great floor manager and would likely enjoy playing with someone she knows well. Despite her low ranking, solely for two-hand violation potential, Kayce would make sense here.

8. Pressed (Big Cat)

Pick: Frankie Borrelli

Jeff's Analysis: We haven’t seen Big Cat in a while on the JENGA field, but he is as tough as they get in terms of skill. Not many will look at Frankie, solely due to his lack of experience, but Big Cat knows that Frankie is likely the number-one games & sports guy at the office. When it comes to competition, no one will take it more seriously than Frankie.

9. Berserkers (Billy or Brandon, other captains will vote them in)

Pick: Rone

Jeff's Analysis: It’s hard mocking one person to two potential teams, but I think both Billy or Brandon would select Rone here. He’s a veteran in the sport and, more importantly, a good friend to both. Don’t overlook Billy potentially selecting his idol Jim Florentine.

10. Purple Hedgehogs (Ria)

Pick: Marty Mush

Jeff's Analysis: Few have been dished bad fortune and luck than Ria in JENGA. Her matches often are filled with controversies and issues out of her hands. She will want someone she knows well, to help avoid an issues. While Fran makes sense her, I think the height and reach of Marty Mush will be the call.

11. Pubes II (Nick)

Pick: KB

Jeff's Analysis: Nick and KB. They go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly, Chris Daughtry and American Idol, and Glenny Balls and the Sopranos. No other pick makes more sense.

12. Muddah's Wake (Glenny Balls)

Pick: Big Ev

Jeff's Analysis: Finally, speaking of Glenny Balls, the legend himself picks last and would be thrilled if Big Ev fell in his lap. The fan-favorite team. No one has been more electric than the Units, and everyone would like to see them together again.

Remember, the winning team earns a cash prize of $10,000, so things are going to get very real very quickly. With only 12 open spots, the draft is definitely going to get intense. Will we see some trades? Anything can happen. 

Hope you can join us at 3 PM ET here on the blog, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The Wonton Don is officially on the clock!
