    Did a live draft with everyone I work with...12 folks. Its early, but we this was the last chance we had to get everyone in the same place at the same time due to TDY and deployments and leave. I had the second pick. Here is what I did.

    Round 1 - AP - RB
    Round 2 - Ronnie Brown - RB
    Round 3 - TJ houzyamomma - WR
    Round 4 - Andre Johnson - WR
    Round 5 - Thomas Jones - (Jets RB
    Round 6 - Greg Jennings - WR
    Round 7 - Vince Young - QB
    Round 8 - Selvin Young - RB
    Round 9 - Packers - DST
    Round 10 - Owen Daniels - TE
    Round 11 - Tavaris Jackson - QB
    Round 12 - Matt Forte - RB
    Round 13 - Shane Graham - K
    Round 14 - Devin Thomas - WR


    We start , 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 D

    I got a stable of RB, and hope to use one as trade bait to maybe get another back up QB or WR. QB spot is a little weak, but there was a run on the back ups in rounds 10 and 11 and I was left with Tavaris Jackson. I wanted Schaub but he was taken before I could get him. I just hope VY can step it up this year.



    What do you think of my draft....you can let me have it. This was a cheap one and basically practice for my big money one.

    Well, just like any draft you have strong points and weak points. The QBs are way off, but VY and T Jack have the potential to step up. Housh is not my favorite WR (how is he going to do without a running game) but he is consistent. Was Steve Smith not available? Ronnie Brown should get pummeled (no passing game) and Ricky Williams evidently has been playing great ball. I would have rather had Jamal Lewis. Thomas Jones is about done, IMO. I like Jennings/Johnson has your #2. A little high for a defense, Owen Daniels is your starter? He'll be OK. Nice job picking up Forte. Kickers are a crapshoot.

    Thanks, Ill respond with my theories to each question.

    Qbs are off, but I knew that going in. Hopefully they do step up.

    I think TJ is a proven WR in an Offense that will likely be playing from behind and will get a ton of catches just like last year.

    Steve Smith is a walking injury. When healthy he is a beast, but with him, what is his QB situation? Delhomme?

    Ronnie Brown was leading the NFL last year in rushing in the weak Miami offense before he got hurt. He will be the number one.

    Owen Daniels had 63 Receptions for 768 yards and 3 TDs so yea he is my starter. Crump was off the board!!!

    I like Forte, he is my rookie pick up along with D Thomas. They dont produce they could be the first dropped.

    Thanks for taking the time to look at my draft. I could have done better, but that is why I like doing a few early ones. To improve next time.

    On a side note, our CJ didnt get drafted along with 0 titan WR.

    I went early on D's cause there was a rush on them. like 5 in a row before my pick and I wanted the PACK.

    Delhomme is looking good, and Moore will at least be better than Carr or Vinny. Ronnie Brown is one of two weapons on the Fins. The other is RW, who will compete with him. Daniels should be fine, but Crump would have been excellent. I cannot believe that Forte dropped so much. 0 Titan WRs? Not surprising at all. The Packers should be a good D>

    You have a good team. You need a QB though just incase VY plays bad. Forte was your best pick.

    VY in 7!?! You could get him in 12! Too early for a defense, IMO. Jackson over Campbell. I doubt Thomas will do anything. Very good team overall.
    1st. It's 6 points for a passing TD, so QBs are worth a ton.

    Lots of goal line carries, and he had a really good season last year.

    Don't like Maroney, looking for a trade.

    Same for Hasselback.

    HC is 5 points for a win. Chargers are my pick for SB, and they play in a terrible division.

    And I cut Curry for Charles.
    I wanted a response on my draft, so I put it at the top to get views. And it worked! :))
