    Rate This Mock Draft

    TE is a major concern - Reed is a concussion away from never playing again, & Gano isn't a suitable backup.

    RB is very much boom/bust here. Either Ellington & Sankey will be awesome, or you'll be in the cellar of your rankings. Depth here is ok, but not great.

    I'm a big Stafford fan, as long as you didn't overreach.

    WR is very solid, top to bottom.

    Hope this helps! If you don't mind, check out my post 'Evaluate my draft'....

    I don't mind the standard snake drafts, but I have considered trying an auction draft to mix it up a bit...

    Another issue is I really don't like the new draft screen. I've missed out on more than a couple players because of it.

    Who would you look at for the reliable RB2? Same question for solid TE?

    Regarding TE: I grabbed Green because I thought a run on TE's was starting (it didn't) - I like his upside, but worried Gates will still be in the picture too much. Clay was #7 TE last year, & I don't see his usage dropping very much.

    I share the concern about Ball. My other option @ that point was Lynch - decided to go with upside this time, but I don't know that I would do that in a real draft.

    My strategy was more about picking up the players I specifically wanted, & not worry too much about adp. It's something I'm playing around with to see how comfortable I am with it before the real drafts start. I'm frequently finding that I'm stuck looking at players that I don't have a good gut feeling about in those spots otherwise. As a result, I seem to end up having to grab a few at an earlier adp, because too many of them are grouped close too close to each other at their typical adp. Anyway, it's just something I'm playing around with...

    Your thoughts on how much KC's o-line losses will affect Charles' value this year? I know he'll still get plenty of touches, but where will he go with them w/out good blocking?

    Who is your # 4 QB? Also...

    #4 QB - Stafford: best overall arsenal & the arm to use it.

    #7 RB - either M Ball or Foster. Probably lean towards Ball due to team strength/context.

  • I have the #8 in a 10-team (standard scoring). Here's what I got in a mock draft today - constructive thoughts/advice?

    1. Montee Ball (Den - RB) 2. Dez Bryant (Dal - WR)
    3. Keenan Allen (SD - WR) 4. Toby Gerhart (Jax - RB)
    5. Joique Bell (Det - RB) 6. Kendall Wright (Ten - WR)
    7. Tony Romo (Dal - QB) 8. Mike Wallace (Mia - WR)
    9. Marvin Jones (Cin - WR) 10. Philip Rivers (SD - QB)
    11. Ladarius Green (SD - TE) 12. Danny Woodhead (SD - RB)
    13. Charles Clay (Mia - TE) 14. Tampa Bay (TB - DEF)
    15. Dan Carpenter (Buf - K)
