I landed Stephen Davis in the 9th round. Best Pick.

I picked Jason Witten in round 4 before I had my first WR. Worst pick even though by seasons end could be a solid one.

14 team league 13 round draft.

Note: Drafting Davis enabled me to make up fo my WR blunder trading another back }:-)

Best Pick- Torry Holt with the last pick of the second round. Even though it was early, he and LT have achored my team to a 4-1 despite starting such busts as Ashley Lelie in the first two weeks, Donte Stallworth in one of his no catch efforts, and Tim Rattay against the Cards.

Worst Pick- Trent Green in the fourth. He has been worthless and I am considering starting my fourth QB in as many weeks. Trent Green, Tim Rattay, Jake Plummer, and know possibly Mark Brunell against the Chiefs.

Worst: My first four picks (CPepp, Kevin Jones, Horn, and Burleson)

Miraculously, I'm 2-3.

Best: Indy D (15) ... maybe Bell (7), depending what the future holds.
Worst: Roy Williams (4), but I duff a WR pick every year. !+)

Javon Walker (4th) - out for season
Jamal Lewis (1st) - could pick it up, but unproductive so far.
Tony Gonzalez (3rd) - this was in the draft that I autopicked because I had something come up, ouch.

Indy D (8th) - Also in that autopick one, it's amazing I'm 3-2 at this point because of how that got picked, but this one worked out nicely.
Neil Rackers (15th) - Can you believe I drafted this guy, dropped him, then picked him up like two weeks later?
Eli Manning (12th in 2) - my backup to Carson Palmer in two leagues.

Though they have time to turn it around, I'm saying my worst pick was Baltimore's D in the 5th round, 55th overall. I really thought they'd be dominant this year, but I suppose I should have known better than to reach on a defense so early. (Another possible candidate for me is Domanick Davis, but he fell to the 18th pick in my draft, so even with it not working out, I don't think I could have really justified grabbing someone different there.)

My best pick was Stephen Davis in the 12th round, 138th overall. An afterthought for most people, I actually grabbed him AFTER DeShaun Foster was taken and am really enjoying watching Foster's owner scramble to improve a very subpar RB situation. (Also got Fred Taylor in the 7th round, Matt Hasselbeck in the 9th.)

Everyone else?

My best pick would have to be Cadillac Williams over all the other rookie backs (back in July) in my keeper league's draft....

My worst pick has to be Nate Burleson in the early goings of 2 drafts....
