Whoa man, I think you were overthinking how the computer will actually draft for you or something. the way the computer drafts is by taking the best player available at that time, according to the needs of your team when it is your turn to draft. Marvin Harrison, Steve Smith, and Torry Holt in the 5,6,7 spot? Four defenses in the top 20? That's not a winning strategy...I mean you have LJ ranked at number 45!!! I would reset the rankings and stick with the presets. Maybe move some QBs around to make it so it wont pick manning at the number 8 pick or whatever it's preset too.
