LestersLegends Mock Draft – Round 8
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.
Joe – Philip Rivers
Previous Picks: Clinton Portis, T.O., Reggie Bush, Anquan Boldin, Rudi Johnson, Dallas Clark, Reggie Brown
Captain Fantastic - Minnesota Defense
Previous Picks: Larry Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Antonio Gates, Roy Williams, Ben Roethlisberger, Roddy White, Chester Taylor
Paul Charchian - Hines Ward
Previous Picks: Reggie Wayne, Larry Fitzgerald, Jason Witten, Brandon Jacobs, Chris Chambers, Jonathan Stewart, Matt Forte
Jase – Owen Daniels
Previous Picks: Tom Brady, Maurice Jones-Drew, Willie Parker, Santonio Holmes, Marvin Harrison, Kevin Smith, Javon Walker
Dan - Jerry Porter
The Jags running game is second to none and although Gerrard won’t top 20 passing td’s most of what he does throw will go to Porter. I know he was a headcase in Oakland but who wouldn’t be after a couple years with Al Davis running MY DAMN TEAM INTO THE GROUND!! Life isn’t easy for a Raider fan.
Previous Picks: Frank Gore, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Ryan Grant, Kellen Winslow, Lee Evans, Derek Anderson, Fred Taylor
Ryan (Me) – Nate Burleson
With Deion Branch and Bobby Engram hurting and D.J. Hackett on to Carolina, Nate stands to have a big season coming up. Last year he had a quiet 9 TDs. If he can stay around there with increased yardage, I just found myself a great bargain.
Previous Picks: Joseph Addai, Braylon Edwards, Jamal Lewis, Carson Palmer, Brandon Marshall, Jerricho Cotchery, Selvin Young
Luis – Dallas Defense
Previous Picks: Marion Barber III, Tony Romo, Wes Welker, Tony Gonzalez, Edgerrin James, Earnest Graham, Laveranues Coles
Jason - Ahman Green
Previous Picks: Steven Jackson, Peyton Manning, Laurence Maroney, Chris Cooley, Santana Moss, Donald Driver, Joey Galloway
Awesome - Marc Bulger
Previous Picks: Randy Moss, Marques Colston, Steve Smith, Ronnie Brown, Thomas Jones, Donovan McNabb, Julius Jones
David – Heath Miller
Previous Picks: Brian Westbrook, Drew Brees, Plaxico Burress, Darren McFadden, Dwayne Bowe, LenDale White, Anthony Gonzalez
Tom – Deuce McAllister
Previous Picks: Adrian Peterson, Willis McGahee, Chad Johnson, Jeremy Shockey, Calvin Johnson, Brett Favre, Bernard Berrian
Jon – Donte Stallworth
Always a deep threat. Should play a strong second fiddle behind Braylon.
Previous Picks: LaDainian Tomlinson, Andre Johnson, Torry Holt, Greg Jennings, Michael Turner, SD DEF, Matt Hasselbeck
