LestersLegends Mock Draft – Round 2

Aug 7, 2008

The legendary Paul Charchian was kind enough to do a mock draft with 11 ordinary fantasy football players (myself included).  We are greatful at the opportunity to both learn from Charch as well as bragging rights with our friends because we were able to do a mock draft with a fantasy football icon.  Here are the guidelines.

Round 2
Joe – Terrell Owens
If it were a keeper league I would go Colston or Andre Johnson, but for next year, T.O. is the best pick here.
Previous Picks:  Clinton Portis

Captain Fantastic - Marshawn Lynch
Previous Picks:  Larry Johnson

Paul Charchian - Larry Fitzgerald
Previous Picks:  Reggie Wayne

Jase – Maurice Jones-Drew
Previous Picks:  Tom Brady

Dan – T.J. Houshmandzadeh
This to me was a value pick. Not in that he should have been taken higher but that the drop off at wr is steep. This guy has out preformed ocho dumbass for the past 2 years. Looking at the needs of owners with upcoming picks, I’ll still get quality at other positions down the line.
Previous Picks:  Frank Gore

Ryan (Me) – Braylon Edwards
Braylon put together a monster season last year with nearly 1300 yards and 16 TDs.  He’s young, talented, and meshes with his QB.  I considered Chad Johnson (pain-in-the-butt) and Coltson (too many other weapons).  In the end I went with the man from Michigan.
Previous Picks:  Joseph Addai

Luis – Tony Romo
Previous Picks:  Marion Barber III

Jason -Peyton Manning
With Brady gone and with a lot of picks left, Manning makes sense here for his yardage, iron man ability, and TD production.  He shouldn’t fall of pace this year with so many passing options and with Addai catching out of the backfield.  Manning is a points machine.
Previous Picks:  Steven Jackson

Awesome - Marques Colston
I would have taken Manning here, but I’m pretty happy with Colston. Two top 10 Wrs is too hard to pass up.
Previous Picks:  Randy Moss

David – Drew Brees
Last of the top flight QBs. Big dropoff after Brees, so have to take advantage here.
Previous Picks:  Brian Westbrook

Tom – Willis McGahee
Previous Picks:  Adrian Peterson

Jon – Andre Johnson
Rationale: 19 selections have been made, 12 of which were running backs. That means that the cream of the crop have been spoken for, and I’d like to think that I have the best one. The next position where the elite are still available, but not for long is WR. Andre had a good year last year and his quarterback all of a sudden wasn’t being sacked 30 times a game. He’s still young, and quite talented. The Texans looked like a team on the rise and Andre’s one big reason why.
Previous Picks:  LaDainian Tomlinson

Past Rounds:
Round 1

    Most Surprising Pick: Maurice Jones-Drew. Didn’t see him going before McGahee.

    Only 3 RBs this round. Clearly the fantasy football climate has changed.

    Your Braylon Edwards-Joseph Addai combo looks great so far. Though David, with Brees-Westbrook, looks just as fearsome. Third round should be interesting.
