I am the first one to write. I cannot wait for FF to return. Interesting that only four people took RB's in the first two rounds. I wonder if this has to do with RBBC. I am still old school and would follow this strategy. And, triple D treat, Grant was great last year, but with potential questions at QB, he may not be as effective of a runner and, thus, a dangerous pick at #1. Very interesting.

So you think Grant is a riskier pick than Larry Johnson?
Posted by Dalton Del Don at 5/1/2008 4:37:00 PM
Triple D-threat: Actually Larry Johnson is riskier. I stand corrected. I would not have chosen either (LJ or Grant) in the first round. Maroney can be risky, as well. I would have chosen Lynch on Gore before Grant. I think Andre Johnson is a great receiver (2nd), but injury worries me. Stewart is exciting and unproven (3rd). Brandon Jackson? Yikes!!! Based on this mock draft, you are going to have to trade a WR or get a gem off the waiver wire to have enough viable RB's. Why did you go WR in the 2nd round? Best available? You have strong WR's. But, based on my knowledge, you need to stack-up on RB's. Like to hear your reasoning for these decisions.

I have no problem with anyone taking Gore or Lynch over Grant. MY RBs 6-9 are pretty interchangeable. I only took Brandon Jackson b/c he's Grant's backup. This league is a 2RB, 3WR format, so while a rookie like Stewart is somewhat of a gamble, Torain could be Denver's starter and Pierre Thomas has huge upside...99 percent of the time I take RBs with my first two picks, and maybe I would have done so had this not been a "mock." But Andre Johnson is the No. 2 WR on my board, and he's closer to No. 1 than No. 3. Love receivers who have two capable QBs on their team. He's going to be a monster this season.

6th round seems a little low for Big Ben,don't you think.

Kevin Smith is interesting this year. Seems like a good chance he'll be the starter on week one.

Kevin Smith is interesting b/c there's no other worthy ballcarrier in Detroit, but his 450 carries last year really hurts his luster as far as I'm concerned. I like Matt Forte much, much more.
