2005 Cafe Fantasy Football Mock Draft

Postby chadlincoln » Tue Jul 19, 2005 9:53 am

Here's the link if you haven't seen it. I'm obviously new here, but a regular in the baseball forum. I did a search, but couldn't find any comments on this.

http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/player_rankings.php

Here are a couple things I saw:

Peyton Manning in the 2nd round? Are you joking?

Chris Brown and Tatum Bell taken ahead of Harrrison?

Culpepper and McNabb in the 3rd round?

Thomas Jones in the 3rd round?

Andre Johnson before Joe Horn, Chad Johnson, and Javon Walker?


This has to be one of the worst mock drafts I've seen. I hope nobody does their draft based off this info. Just my opinion.

Keep in mind, this mock probably started months ago, as no rookies are in it at all. Taking away 2 projected full-time starting RBs will change any mock.

Also, on QBs: Peyton is going way too early in almost every draft. Late 1st/early 2nd is appropriate. And McNabb/Culpepper are not worth more than a 3rd round pick.

I figured it wasn't up to date. Still, Peyton in the 2nd round is crazy.

Even many of the veterans around here don't yet appreciate the value of a top-3 QB. That will all change after this year...or maybe next.

Hey if someone with over a thousand posts says it's true, you better listen to them!

You certainly shouldn't just take my word for it because I have a lot of posts. But hang around, and you'll see plenty of arguments for and against Manning as a 1st rounder.

Personally, I feel he shouldn't go in the first round, because the value of the RBs you get to start in the 2nd and 3rd round is dramaticly worse than the value of the QBs available even in the 4th and 5th rounds. I'd rather get the best RB duo I can, a top 10 WR, and then possibly another player and have grab a Bulger/Green level QB OR

Take Manning 1st round
A good #2 RB as my #1 in the 2nd
Scrape the bottom of the barrel on starting RBs (probably have to take JJ or Caddy) as my #2 in the 3rd.
Get a very weak #1 WR in the 4th.
Maybe get a good #2 WR or a good TE in the 5th.

I think projected scenario without Manning in the first is a much stronger team core.

With worthless posts like this very often, you'll soon be over 1,000 yourself.

I even know what that's supposed to mean.
