If you could redo your draft..

Postby LynahFaithful » Fri Oct 03, 2008 8:38 am

What would your draft board look like for the first 2-3 rounds? What players do you wish you had taken earlier than you did and which do you wish you had taken later...


For me... Wish I hadn't taken moss in the 1st round, and glad I took Chris Johnson in 10th!

Really at this point the only change I'd make would be to not take Selvin Young as my RB3. But honestly it didn't hurt me that much because I got Stewart and CJ24 in my next two picks. Still, if I had rolled the dice on Slaton instead of Selvin my backfield would be even more stacked.

Colston in the 2nd would obviously be replaced by Marshall.

Anderson in the 7th would be replaced by Cutler.

My picks went like this:

A.P.
Romo
Jamal Lewis
Turner [the burner]
Holt
Hines Ward
Calvin Johnson
...

I could have picked someone other than Jamal but he played OK last week although not spectacular. Torry Holt was a mistake although there is hope since St. Louis is talking about getting him the ball more. Problem in my league is there weren't a lot of obviously better players available except for the emerging guys like Slaton. I guess I could have taken Witten instead of Lewis and a back up QB like Cutler or Favre instead of Holt but all in all, I'll take my team. I have 20 more projected points than my opponent this week and 30 more than next week's opponent. After 2 years of drafting at the bottom of the league, getting the #2 pick was great.
Go Bears!

10 team league, I had the 5th pick

Really, the biggest regrets I have so far are two trades involving B. Marshall and R. Bush. Details below.

Round. (Overall Pick #) Player
1. (5) SJ - Redo I would take MBIII (9) here, but I did flip SJ and Heap for MBIII and Winslow before the season started
2. (16) LJ - Probably no change. Maybe Ronnie Brown (17) picked right after me. The night I did the draft, was the same night Ronnie was injured in a preseason game. I was skeptical.
3. (25) Fitz - no regrets - 6th WR off the board
4. (36) B. Marshall - no regrets - 13th WR off the board - unfortunately I traded him pre-season, while facing a 3 game suspension
5. (45) R. Bush - no regrets - unfortunately I traded him for B. Edwards week 2. Thought I was selling high/buy low.

Players to note:
(48) M. Turner - I could have taken him instead of R. Bush in the 5th rd, but both have been solid.
(92) Culter - I used my pick (85) on Hasselbeck and (96) on B. Favre.

Would not have taken Selvin young although it was the 7th round.

Would not have taken Vernon Davis. Somehow Greg Jennings slipped through to the 7th round and he was taken 2 picks after i took Selvin. I completely overlooked him and no not even remember him being on the board.

All in all...Selvin and VD are my only regrets, and I will never draft either of them again.

taking brady at 2.01 instead of any wideout on the board. course chances are i would have taken moss instead so meh.drafting selvin young as well but he was a backup to begin with so it doesn't hurt that much and i knew what to expect out of the situation but it was a value pick at the time. jacobs in the third so far has been a bust but hopefully he can start scoring some more td's.

still in first in that league because i was smart and lucky enough to land cutler who while no brady of last year has kept me alive when things looked pretty bleak week 1.
