Mock Draft #2: 12 Team, Snake 1


And on to mock draft #2. This time I upped it to 12 teams and drafted at #7. The intention was to see what’s available after the top 3 RBs and possibly some QBs go.

League: 12 Teams
Auction: Snake
Draft Spot: #7

#7 Chris Johnson RB – I toyed with the idea of taking Tom Brady or Matt Forte at this spot. Now that I look back on it, I should’ve gone with Forte. I think Johnson’s past performs swayed me in this pick.

#18 Rob Gronkowski TE – Jimmy Graham went #13 and the available RBs (Mathews, AD, Charles, Murray) had too many question marks to warrant a 2nd round pick. Cam Newton was a option here but ultimately the dominance at the TE slot was too much to pass up.

#31 Steven Jackson RB – Jackson was the last of the RBs that I really had any faith left in (Turner, Gore, Sproles, Fred Jackson and Bradshaw were the following RBs taken). As a mid-third round pick, I’ll be quite happy with his production at this spot.

#42 Trent Richardson RB – His knee concerns me a bit but I wanted a high upside RB at this spot.

#55 Dwayne Bowe WR – One of the last WRs left that I felt comfortable drafting this high.

#66 Jeremy Maclin WR – I had my eye on Antonio Brown around this time but I felt it was a bit too early to take him.

#79 Matt Ryan QB – I needed to take a QB since the options were not looking good, especially in 12 team league. I was hoping that Philip Rivers might fall to me at #66 but that obviously did not happen. Ryan is the last QB I’d want to have start and I do like all the weapons he has in Atlanta.

#90 Denarius Moore WR – It might’ve been a little early to take Moore here but he felt like the best available option.

#103 Reggie Wayne WR – I was a little surprised to see Wayne this late and I felt he was a nice value pick.

#114 Daniel Thomas RB – Two drafts down and two times I’ve drafted Thomas. Lottery pick at this point.

#127 Kevin Smith RB – Another option at RB that could stick, given the RB situation in Detroit.

#138 Randy Moss WR – Moss in the 12th round? Why not, he’s got some upside to return value here.

#151 Ryan Fitzpatrick QB – He was the last QB that I felt could put up some decent numbers if Ryan had a bad matchup or was on BYE.

#162 Tim Hightower RB – You never know what Shanahan is going to do and he did look good at the start of last year when he was the Redskins starting RB.

#175 Cowboys D/ST – Highest ESPN ranked D/ST at this point.

#186 Neil Rackers K – A kicker!

Takeaways:

Taking CJ2K at #7 is too much of a risk. I probably should’ve gone with Brady given what I ended up with at QB. Taking Gronk in the 2nd round might have been a mistake as well. That pick could’ve been used on Cam Newton or Jamaal Charles. I noticed that there were a lot of good TEs that went in rounds 6 and 7 in the draft, which is when I took Maclin.

Overall, I’m okay with this team but there’s way too many question marks. It just reiterates that your first three picks need to be solid guys who you know what you’re getting out of them. In my next mock, I’ll probably come out of the first 4 rounds with QB, at least 2 RBs and maybe a WR.

  • All of Seidman’s in-draft ramblings about waiting for a QB and he ends up with Cutler, three TEs, and an army of #2 and #3 receivers. I’m not sure where the upside is on this team? Are some of his RB/WRs safer than a lottery ticket, sure, but other than some insulation from injury and bye weeks, I only see a very ordinary team.
