Play Ball! Mock draft style

Friday, August 27, 2010

1. Kareem Huggins, RB, TB
2. Vince Young, QB, TEN
3. Jerricho Cotchery, WR, NYJ
4. Mike Williams, WR, TB
5. Derrick Mason, WR, BAL
6. Matthew Stafford, QB, DET
7. Bernard Scott, RB, CIN
8. Julian Edelman, WR, NE
9. John Carlson, TE, SEA
10. Packers D
11. Vikings D
12. Cowboys D

Notes: Crazy amounts of camp buzz around Kareem Huggins, and it's warranted. He's passed Derrick Ward for the No. 2 job. ... Vince Young and Matthew Stafford represent high-end QB2s with upside. ... The last of the "every-week" defenses come off the board here. After this, I'd mostly play matchups with my defense. ... Great value on John Carlson here as a TE2.

1. Chad Henne, QB, MIA
2. Chester Taylor, RB, CHI
3. Mohamed Massaquoi, WR, CLE
4. Mark Sanchez, QB, NYJ
5. Steelers D
6. Jabar Gaffney, WR, DEN
7. 49ers D
8. Donnie Avery, WR, STL
9. Legedu Naanee, WR, SD
10. Ravens D
11. Toby Gerhart, RB, MIN
12. Jason Snelling, RB, ATL

Notes: Jabar Gaffney and Legedu Nannee stand out as great flier picks. ... The handcuffing starts as Adrian Peterson's owner wisely snags Toby Gerhart. ... Mark Sanchez is pretty weak as a QB2, I'd rather roll the dice on a RB or WR here instead.

1. Greg Olsen, TE, CHI
2. Saints D
3. Rashad Jennings, RB, JAC
4. Willis McGahee, RB, BAL
5. Jacoby Jones, WR, HOU
6. Marshawn Lynch, RB, BUF
7. Austin Collie, WR, IND
8. Garrett Hartley, K, NO
9. Golden Tate, WR, SEA
10. Mario Manningham, WR, NYG
11. Steve Slaton, RB, HOU
12. Heath Miller, TE, PIT

Notes: The first kicker off the board is rightfully Garrett Hartley, who is a lock as a top-5 fantasy kicker this season. ... The luster has worn off on Golden Tate as he's been going the wrong way on the depth chart. ... Jacoby Jones could prove to be the steal of the draft. ... More good handcuffing here with Rashad Jennings and Willis McGahee. ... Greg Olsen is worth a gamble here thanks to his surprising practice usage. But don't take him too much higher in a Mike Martz offense.

1. Chaz Schilens, WR, OAK
2. Stephen Gostkowski, K, NE
3. Ryan Longwell, K, MIN
4. Nate Kaeding, K, SD
5. Laurent Robinson, WR, STL
6. Rob Bironas, K, TEN
7. David Akers, K, PHI
8. Chargers D
9. Giants D
10. Mason Crosby, K, GB
11. Robbie Gould, K, CHI
12. Bills D

Notes: Chaz Schilens would be a No. 1 receiver if he could ever get on the field, but don't hold your breath. ... With Donnie Avery’s knee injury, Laurent Robinson is locked in as a No. 1 receiver. ... It's impossible to predict which of these kickers will end up best. All are fine picks.
