Fantasy Football Mock Draft #7
Jul 25, 2008
I did my seventh The Sporting News
Live Mock Fantasy Football Draft today. They offer 10 & 12 Team Drafts that go 15 rounds, which I use to gauge where people are picked. As the season approaches, these Mock Drafts become better because everyone is more up-to-speed on the players and you get a full draft. When there isn’t a full draft, there is an Autopick in place. They go by Sporting News rankings. It’s not ideal, but it’s acceptable. Another cool feature is the chat board which allows you to discuss players with other fantasy football fanatics.
I had the ninth pick in a twelve team draft. I made Larry Johnson my 1st pick. I’m still high on him despite his poor 2007 season. In the 2nd round I grabbed Willis McGahee. I couldn’t resist the RB-RB combo. In the 3rd round I opted for Torry Holt. I continued the WR route in Round 4 with Brandon Marshall. In the 5th I got RB depth with Darren McFadden. I grabbed Chris Chambers as my 3rd WR in the 6th. In the 7th I turned to RB depth again with Kevin Smith. In the 8th I selected Donovan McNabb as my QB. In the 9th I added WR depth with Patrick Crayton. In the 10th I grabbed Philip Rivers as an insurance policy for McNabb. With my 11th pick I selected Vernon Davis. In the 12th I went with Donte Stallworth. In the 13th I opted for Bryant Johnson to complete my WR corps. In the 14th I went Defense with Jacksonville. I finished up with DeShaun Foster.
