  • Well if Rodgers is picked 1 and Foster 2, 3 is my dream slot because of Ray Rice. I reckon Foster may slow down with the loss of Brisiel and Winston.




  • What do you think? My first mock this year, picking 3 overall:
    Round 1: Ray Rice
    Round 2: Brandon Marshall
    Round 3: Frank Gore
    Round 4: Antonio Gates
    Round 5: Eli Manning
    Round 6: Greg Little
    Round 7: Nate Washington
    Round 8: Doug Baldwin
    Round 9: Mike Williams
    Round 10: Kendall Hunter
    Round 11: Bernard Pierce
    Round 12: Christian Ponder
    Round 13: Chiefs defense
    Round 14: Lance Kendricks
    Round 15: Ryan Succop




  • This is my team from tonight, not overly happy.

    Picked from 10th I think and this is the order they were picked in, didn't bother with a kicker.

    Matthew Stafford
    Julio Jones
    Ahmad Bradshaw
    Stevan Ridley
    Reggie Wayne
    Donald Brown
    Ben Tate
    Santana Moss
    Rueben Randle
    Ryan Williams
    Jermaine Gresham
    Alshon Jeffery
    David Nelson
    Tim Tebow
    Cincinnati Bengals




  • Very similar to last night. I picked 8th

    Jay Cutler 6
    David Garrard 14

    Ryan Matthews 1
    Jamaal Charles 2
    CJ Spiller 7
    Daniel Thomas 10

    Victor Cruz 3
    Torrey Smith 5
    Mario Manningham 8
    Nate Burelson 9
    Danny Amendola 11
    Randall Cobb 13

    Aaron Hernandez 4

    New England D 12

    Ryan Liddell 15

    Like my RB corp
    I don't like taking Cruz that high and I don't like Manningham but I took the top rated receiver


    Missed out on Ryan Williams Cards RB again, he's rising up the rankings
    adrian again snagged him! Why I oughta




  • Presume thats ryan matthews at 1?

    If your goal was to handcuff Rice, the backup job is going to Anthony Allen




  • Right so heres my team from picking 12th

    QB : Cam Newton (1-12)
    Andrew Luck (7-108)

    RB : Demarco Murray (2-21)
    Beanie Wells (3-44)
    Michael Bush (9-140)
    Delone Carter (13-204)


    WR : Vincent Jackson (4-53)
    Darius Haywerd Bay (6-85)
    Kendall Wright (8-117)
    Brandon Lafell (10-149)
    Mohammed Sanu (12-181)

    TE : Jermichael Finley (6-85)
    Greg Olsen (11-172)

    DEF: Carolina (14-213)


    K : Randy Bullock (15-236)

    Happy enough with it. Only picked the panthers d cause their my fave team. I'll be swapping around according to matchups every week :) Actually surprised with the kicker for the Texans who are usually a high scoring team.



    Thought it was shocking that guys were selecting defenses in the ninth round !
    Thoughts everyone ?




  • Gresham is my only TE so he'll start. Bit of a risk taking stafford first but most of the elite guys had gone by then.

    I'd be happy enough with Bradshaw and Ridley as starters.

    Matthew, nice team but I'm not sure about gore that early, he'll lose a lot of touches this year and is not being used as much in the passing game.

    EDit: Malachy, I like your team too except for Beanie wells who could lose the starting job to williams this year.

    Charles is a big reach in the second round if you ask me, he's recovering from a severe injury and the Chiefs are going to be taking their time with his rehab, they signed Peyton Hillis too




  • mikemac1 wrote: »

    Well that would be the only goal. If Allen was the announced backup for week 1 I'd drop Pierce for him, he should be a FA. The Gore pick was because my next pick was 62, and there would be no one good left and I consider him a fairly safe option.

  • Happy Enough with my draft tonight...
    6rd Big Ben
    9rd Andy Dalton

    3rd Michael Turner
    4rd Shaun Greene
    8rd Pierre Thomas
    10rd LaG Blount

    1rd Andre Johnson
    2rd Greg Jennings
    7rd Sidney Rice
    12rd Brian Quick
    14rd Dexter McCluster

    5rd Vernon Davis
    11rd Tony Moeaki

    13rd Nate Kating

    15rd Washington Def

    Not entirely happy with the depth at WR & RB...maybe should have drafted a RB or WR instead of Big Ben in round 6




  • Charles is a big reach in the second round if you ask me,

    Good info, I'll know for next time

    R
    Beanie Wells (3-44)

    Thoughts everyone ?

    +1

    By any reports I've seen with a good pre-season or within first few weeks of the regular season Ryan Williams will be starter.
    Cards are not happy with Wells




  • I would have faith in Charles, he didn't get too many touches when he had his great 2010 year.




  • A few risky picks there A_Sober_Paddy?

    Blount may lose the starting job, Rice and Johnson are injury risks and I think Turner may struggle this year...

    Thanks, I haven't been following the Cards closely at all !

    Blount was a panic pick, my board was in tatters. But in saying that I reckon he'll be my 4 choice RB.

    With regards injury risks, the closer to season's start hopefully we'll have a better idea of the fitness of those players.

    My team in this draft was twice that of any of my FF teams last season

    Round 6: Greg Little

    This guy!

    Had him last year

    Getting wide open and drop, drop, drop :(

    Should improve but I'll never trust him again

    Jermaine Gresham

    Great value pick




  • I think if you miss out on the top 2 Te's you may as well wait till the later rounds




  • Just after joining a few leagues for the craic that are drafting tonight, one is a 20 teamer :O




  • adrian522 wrote: »

    I picked up Finley in rd 5 I think. I could have left it later really. My decision at the time was between him and Fleener and I could have gone either way. Fleener was still around for a good while.

  • Gates could be good too, should be available in the middle rounds




  • adrian522 wrote: »

    Yeah I took Gates, Eric Weddle thinks he's healthy and even though my memory of him last year was constant injuries he still got nearly 800 yards. Got to have insurance though, and Kendricks could bring that with the return of the Rams offense.




  • Think the real draft will be much tougher, a lot of autopicks tonight




  • right lads, I have the no.1 pick, should I go with Foster or A Rod ?




  • right lads, I have the no.1 pick, should I go with Foster or A Rod ?

    I'm spending too much time in baseball forum
    I saw A Rod and thought WTF?? He's out for 6-8 weeks with a broken hand :o

    Actually, it's you and me this week malachy!




  • I'd go Rodgers personally, but can see logic in both.

    I'm pretty much given up on the baseball at this stage :P I'll have to actually out some effort into my draft rather then just picking guys who had good stats last year in certain categories :(




  • Gonna go Rodgers just cause of Fosters injury last year..




  • QBs: RG3 (5-71), Schaub (6-90)
    RBs: Lynch (2-26), Martin (3-39), Hightower (9-135), Hillman (11-167)
    WRs: Megatron (1-7), Steve Johnson (4-58), Jon Baldwin (8-122), Randy Moss (10-154), Henderson (13-199)
    TEs: Tamme (7-103), Dickson (12-186)
    K: Scobee (15-231)
    DST: Cardinals (14-218)

    Worst team I've drafted in a while. QBs are solid with RG3 a candidate to go crazy.
    Megatron and Steve Johnson are both top WRs then I've take gambles on the rest in the hope one pays off.
    Tamme should see a decent amount of the ball while Dickson looked good last year.
    My RBs are awful.
