Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/22/11

The Fantasy Guru Daily returns today after a productive one-day hiatus. Yesterday, the staff joined Greg Cosell, Adam Caplan, Brian Billick, Ron Jaworski, Sal Paolantonio, Ray Didinger, and others for a mock draft at NFL Films. It was a great way to hear different opinions on the players and draft strategy, and we came out of it feeling like we have an even greater grasp on what this year’s rookie class is like.
