When I decided to do a draft, I decided to wait till week two, just to see how well I'd do by getting a little bit of information from my players. Started quite predictably with AP going #1. But then it just went wierd. Brees went 2, I was picking 7th and was hoping that Brees would slip to me, but didn't expect such a high pick. M J-D went 3rd, Turner 4th and I thought we were back to normality when 5th pick took BRADY. wow. At this point I had to check the scoring system, just to make sure it was standard scoring, it was. Forte went next then it was my pick. Now I had a dilema, take a very good value RB with Williams Gore or Slaton, or do I go with my gut and reach for Fitzgerald. Probably a bad move, but I take Larry.
Before the draft gets back to me the premium RBs have gone along with Manning (11th), Rivers (13th to same guy that took manning) and the rest of the top receivers. In round two I reckon I have a choice between Westbrook or LT. I gamble on Westbrook.
3rd round and I'm hoping Colston drops to me. Guy 3 before me takes him and I'm stuck. I need another RB so take BPA, which at the time is Ryan Grant. Not bad. I have already made a trade offer though, which I hope will be accepted - I'm giving up Fitzgerald and Westbrook for Turner and Colston.
By the time 4th round gets to me even more QBs have gone off the board with Romo, Rodgers and Warner all going in the 3rd. I resign to myself at signing Flacco/Ryan/Sanchez in the late rounds and take a guy I like from week 1, D McFadden
I was hoping to get a TE in the 5th so am happy when the round starts and only Clark has gone (round 3 to the guy with 2 QB), but then there is a rush on them and Witten, Gates and Gonzalez go in the 3 picks directly before mine. Damn, I wanted Gonzalez and I was one spot out. I decide to leave the TE for now and pick up Lee Evans.
The next few rounds are pretty standard, I take:
6th Tim Hightower
7th Chris Cooley
8th Patriots (under-rated I think)
Round 9 is where I start to struggle. Everyone is taking Kickers but I'm leaving that to the last round (I hope I can land J Carney), looking back this was a reach, but I take Holt. No one took a WR from rounds 9-10.
Round 10. I'm not leaving it any later, QBs are rated highly and Ryan has gone so I take my man, Flacco.
Round 11. Backup wr with an awesome first week - I Bruce
I've known my last 3 picks since the start of the draft and I manage to get them:
13: Baskett (sleeper at Indy)
