I don't lock into any particular positions and rather prefer to stay flexible, seeing where the draft takes me following my tiers. Read the article and you'll understand what I mean.
Now of course, depending where I'm drafting in the 1st I can more or less guess what I'm likely to do. It seems to me I was mostly drafting at the end of the 1st round last year (no luck). In that case I would in most cases go RB-WR since I thought the value of a top tier WR outweighed the RB at that point, with so many already off the board. And this would especially be the case in PPR leagues (which I prefer) and ones that start 3 WR with an option for a 4th in the flex spot.
My first draft this year though I did draft 10th of 12 and went RB-RB.

I haven't but I have been testing these programs in mock drafts. I'm not impressed by the ones I have tried (FREE programs). DDT is okay, it will pick a decent team if you go by the value picker but you could do so much better if you drafted yourself. League Master in my opinion is worthless, picked a horrible team.
I used the Cheatsheet Compiler a few years ago when it was free, and I loved it. I especially liked how Mike was willing to exchange emails answering questions for a free product. I have never used the Draft Buddy, but then I didn't have a laptop to take to my draft before.
The Compiler is pretty easy. You plug in your stats and hit the magic button and away it goes. It produced a pretty good sheet, and I don't remember having any gripes about the projections (or not many, anyway). The stats were updated at least once during the preseason, and if I recall correctly they were updated more than once as the preseason progressed.
I would recommend Cheatsheet Compiler to anyone who is willing to pay $$$ for a product. If Draft Buddy is anywhere near as good as the CC, I would recommend that, too.

I second that.

I use the stuff from footballguys.com. You can download a free version, it's just not updated after July 15 or something. That's fine with me cause the only thing really to update is projections and depth charts which aren't a big deal.
