LestersLegends Mock Draft – Round 7
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.
Jon – Matt Hasselbeck
He’s been a solid QB the last few years. Has two games apiece against the 49ers, Cardinals, and Rams.
Previous Picks: LT, Andre Johnson, Torry Holt, Greg Jennings, Michael Turner, San Diego DEF
Tom – Bernard Berrian
Previous Picks: Adrian Peterson, Willis McGahee, Chad Johnson, Jeremy Shockey, Calvin Johnson, Brett Favre
David – Anthony Gonzalez
Gonzalez really picked it up down the stretch last year. Marvelous Marvin looks like he might be on the way out and Gonzalez will step it up to fill in. I expect a huge breakout season for him.
Previous Picks: Brian Westbrook, Drew Brees, Plaxico Burress, Darren McFadden, Dwayne Bowe, LenDale White
Awesome - Julius Jones
So I needed another RB in case R Brown or T Jones gets hurt. I like the situation in Seattle, and I won’t be surprised if Julius ends up in the top 10 fantasy scoring RBs. Sure, there’s a bit of a risk, but Seattle is a solid team, and Maurice Morris has already proven that he CAN’T be “Da Man” in Seattle. And there will be one, because there always is. Thought about Selvin Young here, but Coach Shanahanigans is just so frustrating , and my psychologist would probably end up in prison for killing someone (me, Shany, etc) if I took any of the Denver RBBC. I can’t willingly do that to the world. Or myself.
Previous Picks: Randy Moss, Marques Colston, Steve Smith, Ronnie Brown, Thomas Jones, Donovan McNabb
Jason – Joey Galloway
Previous Picks: Steven Jackson, Peyton Manning, Laurence Maroney, Chris Cooley, Santana Moss, Donald Driver
Luis – Laveranues Coles
Previous Picks: Marion Barber, Tony Romo, Wes Welker, Tony Gonzalez, Edge, Earnest Graham
Ryan (Me) – Selvin Young
With my starting QB, RBs, and WRs in place, I decided to get some RB depth. I usually try to avoid Denver RBs, but with Ryan Torrain’s injury, I’ll dip my toe into that pool. While I don’t expect a huge season from Selvin, he should be an adequate third RB in a 12 team league.
Previous Picks: Joseph Addai, Braylon Edwards, Jamal Lewis, Carson Palmer, Brandon Marshall, Jerricho Cotchery
Dan – Fred Taylor
According to him, he’s “on a mission” to catch Jim Brown in yardage. He needs 1597 yards to so and that won’t happen. But how about the 1200+ he got last year and 6-8 td’s. I think everyone would take that from a back-up.
Previous Picks: Frank Gore, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Ryan Grant, Kellen Winslow, Lee Evans, Derek Anderson
Jase – Javon Walker
Previous Picks: Tom Brady, Maurice Jones-Drew, Willie Parker, Santonio Holmes, Marvin Harrison, Kevin Smith
Paul Charchian - Matt Forte
Previous Picks: Reggie Wayne, Larry Fitzgerald, Jason Witten, Brandon Jacobs, Chris Chambers, Jonathan Stewart
Captain Fantastic - Chester Taylor
Previous Picks: Larry Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Antonio Gates, Roy Williams, Big Ben, Roddy White
Joe – Reggie Brown
Previous Picks: Clinton Portis, T.O., Reggie Bush, Anquan Boldin, Rudi Johnson, Dallas Clark
