Just did a draft with 6 experienced fantasy owners, 6 newcomers. Interesting to say the least.
The 1st round went pretty normal, with the only potential reach being Maroney at 8th.
The 2nd round Chad Johnson went off the board 14th overall, before Steve Smith.
No defenses went until round 8, in which about 8 defenses were drafted.
QBs were funky with the top 5 going earlier than usual and guys like Kitna and Leinart hanging around a round or more past their usual spot.
RBs fell, Kevin Jones in the 13th, Lamont Jordan in the 10th, Brandon Jacobs in the 5th, Portis 33rd overall (Lynch was 32nd overall)
WRs were for the most part taken at their ADP, though Chambers fell to round 9.
Rookie WRs were too highly valued. Guys like Dwayne Jarrett, Robert Meachem, Ted Ginn Jr, all have roster spots, and it was only 16th rounds deep.
Someone took Nate Kaeding in round 7 or 8.
All and all, I was surprised by how close all the teams came out though doing a draft with 6 usual drafters and 6 wildcard drafters. With the exception of one horrendous team (Stephen Jackson, and everything else is subpar) all the teams look like they can contend for the playoffs.
