Random Late-Week Thoughts

I have my second “exert” draft tonight for Lindy’s Football Magazine, and I’m glad to find out today I pick 4th because I did only “okay” picking 12th in my first draft of the year last week. I like 4th because I don’t have to make the tough call on a QB or WR in the first round, which I like. I do think Tom Brady merits a #1 pick, but I’d still rather take my QB a little later. Picking 4th, I’m guaranteed a true stud back, likely either Brian Westbrook or Steven Jackson (or maybe Joe Addai), and I like my options for my next two picks somewhat close together in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Picking 4th, I’ll likely look to grab a stud wideout or two, or a stud wideout and another back. I can envision holding off until the 4th or 5th round on a QB drafting 4th, and I think I’m going to do well tonight.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the […]
