The RotoWire staff conducted its annual college fantasy football draft last week, with a total of 24 teams participating in this year's edition.

Featuring players from all 120 FBS schools, the draft consisted of 17 rounds. Each team fielded a roster of 2 QB, 3 RB, 4 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DST and five bench players. Given the nature of the draft pool this year, I believe the ninth pick I inherited was not particularly fortuitous.

A pair of do-everything quarterbacks headlined the top of the draft board, as Jordan Lynch and Johnny Manziel were gone with picks one and two. Workhorse running backs and big-play wide receivers were next off the board. Neither of my targets who fit this description fell to me at 9 as I was hoping. Instead, Sammy Watkins and Duke Johnson were off the board at 5 and 6, respectively.
