With the first pick in the FBG Post NFL Draft Mock, I select:

LaDainian Tomlinson, Running Back, San Diego Chargers

PROS: The most talented back in football is an easy choice here. In 15 games last year, he put up over 1300 yards and 17 rushing touchdowns, adding 400+ receiving yards, along with another TD in the air. When you consider that he was injured for much of the season, these numbers become eye-popping. Healthy, I think he's good for a combined 2100 yards and 18 scores, which are monster numbers. Plus, he's an all around good guy who's fun to root for, and plays for an up and coming squad.

CONS: His 3.9 YPC last year is a bit scary, but is largely a result of his injury last year. While he probably won't match his 5.26 number from 2003, I think he should have no trouble getting back to around 4.4.-4.6 YPC this season. Once again, he will have Antonio Gates to steal some goal line TD, but that was the case last year, and he still had 18 TD. Last years injuries seem to be an aberration, but are worth a bit of concern.

CONCLUSION: A rock solid #1 pick, and my favorite NFL player to boot. Let's see what's around at 24/25.

This doesn't need/merit two threads. So long as you update all the picks to the first page, both the picks and coomentary can be in the same thread, as they are in all the all-time drafts. Also, people will inevitably offer commentary in here.

Fair enough. Also, let's keep commentary at a MINIMUM of 4 sentences or so, at least for the first three rounds.

With the 2nd pick I select Peyton Manning.Peyton Manning was absolutely unstoppable last year and doesn't look to slow down this year as his thirst for a title grows. Many forget that Peyton sat out a couple of 4th qtrs and all of the last week of the season or he could have really padded some stats.

Good pick.
Part of me wants to disagree, as picking ANY QB this early just seems wrong. However, it's pretty tough to argue with 50 TD.

With the 3rd pick, Im gonna have to go with Shaun Alexander here.I didnt see "dynasty" anywhere, so Im assuming this is just a 1 yr thing. Alexander is a machine, end of story. The tds #s over the past 4 yrs are ridiculous, and I see no reason why any of this offseason garbage should hinder his production on the field this year. Seattle is looking to take the next step after two straight 1st round playoff losses. Hasselbeck and Walter Jones are signed long term, they used their 1st rd pick on a stud center, who can play a little guard if need be. They re-signed Pork Chop, and have made some very good additions to their defense. They are ready to win this year, and will ride Alexander into the ground if they have to, knowing its probably his last year in Seattle. Hes just too safe a pick in this spot, to pass on. Put him in, sit back, and watch 1800 total yards, and between 15-20 tds just roll in.

I can get 2 good RB's in the 2nd and 3rd. Every RB I was thinking of at that spot concerns me a little. He is a solid 20-25 points a week guaranteed.

That's exactly right...with the RB depth this year if you take Peyton early, you'll still have two solid RBs waiting for you at 23 and 26.

I tend to agree with you. Sure, there's a good number of RB that have at one point or another been solid #1 or #2 guys, but trying to figure out which ones are going to get it together this year is another matter...

Now, maybe. But not when the RBs are culled by training camp and preseason. That will take care of the depth.

Got no problem with the manning pick, I'd rather make it at like 4-6 if it were me.

In most drafts this year, i dont think he'll last past 5.
If the league only gives 4 pt. per TD thrown and it is 1 ppr, Manning in the early first is a disaster pick. I can guarantee that Manning will not be selected until the early 2nd round in most of the WCOFF leagues this year.

Same exact scoring in WCOFF as it is for this mock. Only difference is starting 1 more RB and 1 more WR. Everything else is the same.

Too early for Manning, imo.
Tough call if it is a league that only starts one QB. I used to think it is easy to get a QB later that can get you the points...but there is something about getting the points consistantly. That is something Manning has done for me the last few years. In a 12 team draft, a team at #2 is not going to get Manning in the second round. Someone that drafts an RB in the first round is going to grab him. Last year taught us that some of the top tier RBs drafted did not perform to expectation, and late drafted ones like Martin were studs.Manning will not lose any weapons from last year, so I think he is a safe pick. I don't think you will really see him make it into a draft past the first round.

Should we try and pick a date and time on Wednesday or Thursday nite to really try and get some serious rounds done? just throwing it out there. Like wednesday 9:00 EST ?

I don't think Manning is a bad pick. It's a safe pick but more than that the strategy for the remainder of the draft allows you to go BPA all the way. There will be a hit on the RB1 position but you can survive. I would likr this strategy better in a league where passing TD's are 6 rather than 4 and where you start 3 WR's. Flex leagues make this pick better as well. But even in this league you can survive nicely with this pick as long as you make the next 2 picks at least 1 good RB if not both of them.

1.04 Priest Holmes

Risky? Maybe. But when Holmes is on the field he is the most productive fantasy back in the game. 1079 total yards and 15 TD's in 8 games last year, and 66 TD's total in his last 38 games is amazing. He's just gotta stay healthy.

Nice pick. Gotta like it when you can get the #1 scoring RB with the #4 pick. :thumbup:

1.05 RB Willis McGaheeAfter a great second half of last season I think McGahee will pick up right where he left off, even with the questions about a "rookie" QB. IMO, LT and Alexander are the clear first two picks. After that, we likely won't see any two 1st rounds the same.

 

Portis Homer

Footballguy
1.06 Edgerrin JamesI really hate this draft slot. There are about 5 guys I would be equally happy with, at would feel much better drafting later at this point in the year. I'm feeling reasonably confident Edge will stay in Indy for the year and I expect to see more rushing TDs this year. He'll get plenty of receptions, plenty of yards, and should be a solid choice.

1.07 Kevin Jones-Det

Talk about a RB that's in a great situation. If the QB can have any reasonable success passing then Jones should fine all kinds of lanes to run in. With his talent the potential for him in this offense is outstanding. You can make arguments for a couple of other players in this spot but the upside with Jones is too good to pass. The way he finished last year shows us he's ready to have a solid '05.

Pretty good pick at #7. If the QB at Detroit can even be average, the defense shouldn't be able to keep 8 in the box. I wouldn't be surprised if Kevin Jones averages 100 yards per game or more in total yards.

1.08 - I select Ahman Green - RB - Green Bay PackersAnalysis: Judging by Green's performance the last several years, he has been uber-productive every other season. Therefore, I'd be banking on that pattern holding and I might be looking at a top 3-4 fantasy RB. At the 8th spot, I can't say no to that kind of value. Fantasy football to me is all about value and I feel it is crucial for your selections to outperform their draft spot. I think this will definitely be the case with Green this year.

I would agree if it was a late round pick but the 2nd overall pick is too early. And I would love to know what concerns you about picking Alexander? Is it the consistant double digit touch downs? The fact that he never misses a game? Enlighten me as to what concerns you?

I am concerned about where his head is going to be this year. How he is going to perform for a team that has made it clear that they don't give a #### about him. Hasslebeck was on NFL total access the other night saying that they have had almost 100% participation in offseason conditioning and meetings. The one person missing.....Shaun Alexander. I still think he is pissed at Holmgren for not letting him win the rushing title. I don't know dude but I smell holdout or something. It's just a feeling. Manning will strive to break his own record and the Indy offense will be as potent as ever. He singlehandedly will win at least 6 weeks for me when he goes "off" and scores 40 points. Even taking him this early I will get 2 top 20 RB's. After the 3rd round I will put my first 3 players against anyone's first 3 and feel good about it.

1.10 = Tiki barber

In a ppr league the guy at the 10 spot is pure gold. He is very underrated and almost took someone else hoping he would fall. Dont really wanna gamble that he'll be there though.

1.11 Deuce McAllister, RB, New Orleans

He's a steal here. This guy will definitely bounce back. I'm excited that New Orleans went with Jamaal Brown (OT) in the first round of the draft to help solidify their offensive line. Deuce is a homerun hitter that can run between the tackles and has the speed to turn it on and take it all the way to the house. I'm expecting the Saints coaching staff to implement a style that includes a fullback which McAllister is not only used to but prefers in order to have time to read his blocks. He's a no brainer here.

I don't like Jamal Lewis at 1.09 because he doesn't catch enough balls.I love Tiki at 1.10 and was hoping he'd sneak down to me at 1.11, but I can't complain about getting Deuce.
