Draft by Team

1 - (Craig Davis) 
6 QB Delhomme, Jake Well, with the number one overall pick I felt that Larry Johnson was the clear-cut choice for the top spot. The problem, however, with the first pick is that you have to wait so long before your get to select again. 16 running backs went after my selection of Johnson, meaning I needed to grab a WR1 before the pool was too thin. My original plan was to take two WR’s from Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson, and Anquan Boldin. With Johnson and Owens going right before me, I had to take Boldin and select another RB (Deuce McAllister). Looking back, I might have gone another way with that selection. Overall, my squad isn't too shabby, but when drafting in the number one position you have to realize that your RB2 isn't going to be what you might wish for. With the top TE and Team DEF, I feel like this team would compete on a weekly basis. The only thing I might have changed was grabbing a WR2 in the third round instead of taking McAllister.

2 – (Gregg Rosenthal) 
5 QB Hasselbeck, Matt Having a top three pick is a big advantage this year.  I choose Tomlinson over Shaun Alexander because this league awards points for receptions.  I see seven elite receivers and was happy to see Terrell Owens fall to me at 2.11.  When my second-rated QB (Hasselbeck) fell to me in round five, I knew I’d have to look for value late at receiver.  My favorite sequence of the draft was taking Michael Clayton and Samkon Gado in rounds eight and nine.  I think both are undervalued and will probably draft Clayton in every league I’m in.   With Tomlinson, Kevin Jones, Ron Dayne, and Gado at running back, I feel like I’d be covered in any scenario.  Easy to say in June.  My receivers aren’t flashy, but I’m betting on Clayton and Coles to catch 70 passes.  I did a few of these drafts and this was the tightest one.

3 – (David Dodds) 
8 QB Warner, Kurt My first pick was a no-brainer (get one of the top 3 RBs).  I had Chad Johnson as my top rated wide receiver so was pleased to see 4 other receivers go before him.  I had targeted Antonio Gates with my third pick and was extremely happy to see him still on the board.   In PPR leagues, he is in a class by himself at the TE position.  I knew making this pick though, I would be scrambling to find a good RB2.  My picks of DeShaun Foster ( 4.10), Dominic Rhodes (6.10) and Fred Taylor (7.03) all come with injury risks and question marks, but I am hopeful one will emerge as a number two for this team.  I had targetted Donald Driver in the fifth round as the last elite receiver and was pleased he was still on the board.  With hard caps at all positions (ie each owner must take exactly 2 QBs), I went into the draft knowing I could get two OK quarterbacks very late in the draft.  I was pleased to lock down Kurt Warner in the 8th.  He likely will miss some games, but I believe his points per game he plays should be top 5 all season with the weapons he has at receiver.  I used the later rounds to add depth at wide receiver and draft my defenses and kickers.  I am pleased with my selections there.

4 - (Adam Caplan) 
6 QB Manning, Eli

With the one point per catch rule, I was looking early for running backs with versatility and receivers who will catch the ball a lot. I planned to get my quarterback later on since it's a pretty deep position this year.

I had the #4 draft position and I think is a good one. In fact, I would take issue with those fantasy owners who say there is the "big three running backs" then everyone else. I truly believe if you look at Tiki Barber's numbers the past two seasons, it should be called "the big four".I would also say that coming back with my second round pick, I still had my pick of talented players and it was that way through most of the draft. Overall, I strongly believe that drafting fourth overall is a good spot to be in.

5 - Sporting News (Vinnie Iyer) 
6 QB Culpepper, Daunte I like big things from Portis after how he finished 2005, so I picked him over LaMont Jordan. Speaking of Jordan, I think I got this year's version in Taylor. ... The Steelers' passing game should be better this season, Ward and Miller will again be the primary go-to targets. ... With Givens' departure from New England, it makes him and Branch both rising No. 1s. ... I'm not too worried with Culpepper's knee injuries, and his upside far outweighs that in Round 6. ... There are QB concerns in Buffalo, but Evans is still talented enough to perform well as a fantasy No. 3. ... DeShaun Foster and Fred Taylor's respective injury woes makes me feel good that either Williams or Jones will be a very productive third back. ...The Bucs have aged a bit, but Monte Kiffin will make them keep on slobberknockin'.

6 – (Matt  Waldman) 
5 QB McNabb, Donovan This squad looks ugly on the surface. I hesitated on depth I coveted in the mid-rounds, and had to go high risk-reward with Brunell, Barber, and Green. Still, this roster is more than promising with its stable of consistent, high-scoring starters in a ppr format. Lamont Jordan was a top five back in '05. A one-legged Dillon was still ranked 13th among RBs. Can he hold off Maroney, the player I just missed as a handcuff? Fitzgerald is still on the rise after a breakout year. Galloway and Houshmandzadeh also finished well as the 10th and 12th-ranked receivers. McNabb is an elite fantasy QB with or without household names at receiver. Witten is a capable starter, and should have more room with T.O. joining the ranch. My biggest disappointment? Waiting too long to pull the trigger on Addai, but that's the beauty of mocks--good practice for the real thing.

7 - (John Miller) 
9 QB Brooks, Aaron Picking out of the 7th spot isn't as bad as expected; I was able to gauge others' needs pretty well in between picks, pulled off a few hellacious steals: namely Plaxico Burress at 5.7 and Aaron Brooks at 9.7.  Someone picked Ron Dayne before Burress?  Ouch. Obviously my team is hooked to the Brooks-Moss battery.  If they connect for 15 TDs I've surely made the playoffs.  My 4th round pick, Roy Williams, is Draft Sharks' Breakout Player pick for 2006.  It's the 3rd Year WR Breakout Theory, plus Mike Martz, plus a heady QB in Jon Kitna, equals 1,000 yards & 12 TDs.  I'll be scrutinized for taking Ronnie Brown at #7 but that guy's going to get 350 touches.  There's no one else in Miami to even spell him.

8 - Gridiron Grumblings (John T. Georgopoulas) 
9 QB Plummer, Jake Drafting in the eight spot, I was hoping to be able to nab two good runners and a top TE, either Gates or Shockey. I was pleasantly surprised at the way things turned out, since I was able to nab a top WR early (Holt) while being able to cobble together a pretty decent backfield (Edge, Parker, Addai). I consider the TE position critical nowadays, so managing to grab Crumpler (#3 on our list at the time of the Draft) late was a huge boost to the team. As expected, there were two decent veteran QBs available late—a cornerstone of Gridiron Grumblings’ draft planning. Overall, I feel pretty good about this team and would expect it to make the post-season.

9 - (Roger Rotter) 
5 QB Brady, Tom I wanted to two grab three running backs in the top 20, two wideouts in the top 20 and a top-five quarterback, along with sleepers at running back, wideout and tight end. I accomplished that on paper.  My ninth draft position allowed me to draft two durable, high-powered backs with the potential for 300-plus carries in Steven Jackson and Reuben Droughns. Tatum Bell can emerge as a top-10 back in his third season. Ron Dayne has never proven to be successful at handling running back duties over a full NFL season. Santana Moss was a top-three fantasy receiver last season, and Rod Smith continues to be among the leaders in receptions (League counts one point per catch). Tom Brady, who’s consistent and durable, led the NFL in passing yards last season. Vernon Davis and Kellen Winslow have the talent to be top-five tight ends. As New England’s first-round investment, Laurence Maroney can post 100-yard games if Corey Dillon falters again. Michael Vick provides a powerful scoring punch in favorable match-ups, while Travis Taylor is competing for Minnesota’s No. 1 receiver.

10 - The Huddle (David Dorey)
3 QB Manning, Peyton While I am not crazy about the tenth spot, I really liked the way this team came together. After snagging a solid backfield with McGahee and Carnell Williams, I landed Peyton Manning at the 3.10 – that was ridiculous value. It delayed my WR’s a bit but Wayne and Mason should be just fine and either Jurevicius or Bryant can step up for WR3. I got my #2 ranked TE in Heap and my #1 ranked DEF (CAR) and PK (Vinatieri). I have the top players for all positions other than RB and WR which were not really possible going 10th.  I grabbed great upside players though at RB with Gore and White as back-ups and should be fine there. This is a very solid team throughout and about the best you can end up with using the 10th slot. You have to snag RBs with the first two picks or risk having a major hole where you can never make up ground. And landing Manning with the 3.10 pick? Pure grand larceny.

11 – (Jeff Anderson) 
5 QB Palmer, Carson We were very happy with how the draft turned out based on our position and strategy.  A draft can often be judged on how well you handle the positional runs, if you are at the beginning or starting the run, you are in good shape, if you are playing catch up at the end of a run, you may struggle.  We were on the front end of most of the key positional runs, getting three solid running backs in Rudi Johnson, Brian Westbrook and Warrick Dunn, as well as Carson Palmer in the fifth, which we felt was good value despite his ACL injury.   Our receivers are also strong, as there is a good mix of solid veterans (Terry Glenn, Darrell Jackson) and youth with upside (Jerry Porter, Donte Stallworth).  We also were at the beginning of the defensive run, grabbing the New York Giants, and the kicker run, where we got great value in David Akers in the 14th.

12 - (John Hansen) 
6 QB Bulger, Marc I normally don't view picking last as a death sentence, but in my case in this draft, it might have been. Throughout the draft, I was unable to get good value with my picks, and many of the players I targeted were taken off the board right in front of me. Since this was a points per catch league, I had to pass on RB Rudi Johnson with my second pick, which made my RB corps weak. A few rounds later, however, my draft could have been saved had QB Carson Palmer and TE Todd Heap fell to me, but both players went right in front of me. I did what I could considering the circumstances, but that only netted me a team that, while solid on paper, doesn't have much upside potential and has too much downside. I also feel the fact that there was no flex starter and only 2 WRs required to start -- not to mention the fact that we had to draft backups for PK and DT -- made my situation worse. If there's one silver lining it's that I have pretty good depth, so if this team can work the waiver wire well, it should be in the mix.
