I prob would have - haven't even thought about my second rounders yet, hard to think too far ahead as things seem unpredictable this year and impossible to figure who will be picked with any kind of accuracy.

Top 10 I used for this draft (slightly RB heavy biased based on my needs but I usually go talent over position in dynasty)

1. Gio Bernard
2. Eddie Lacy
3. LeVeon Bell
4. Tavon Austin
5. Montee Ball
6. Cordarrelle Patterson
7. Jonathan Franklin
8. DeAndre Hopkins
9. Marcus Lattimore
10. E.J. Manuel

Hardest players to rank were Ball and Lattimore. I saw no talent out of Ball in college but I think he feel into the best situation and considering Denver took him when other guys I have ranked higher than him still on the board they must believe in him. On Lattimore to me it depends how much you value 2014 picks. I don't think a bottom team looking to make a run this year is the ideal spot for him so it makes sense to me he is landing with stacked playoff teams in drafts. Also has a bigger injury concern than if you actually traded for a 2014 first round pick.

In this format I would have EJ as a top 3 pick.

Didn't even have him as my top qb Thrift. Buffalo has been a wastleand for offensive talent for nearly 20 years now. Simply can't trust them to groom him into a NFL QB. Hopefully I am wrong cause I kinda like buff.

Even a 10% chance at his upside is worth more than most of these RB.

Basically everything that is wrong with him is also wrong with Kaepernick. He is not as mobile as Kaepernick but he's mobile and his accuracy is great, of course.

Your point is valid. Kaepernick in Buffalo maybe is a bust. But given all the RB have warts, I think you have to take a chance. I wouldn't take him til mid/late 2nd in single QB and only if I had need.

Agreed. RBs are "flying" off the board and this years class sucks.

Thank you sir. I was not impressed with the RB collection this season, so I went with talent and situation with Austin. Was looking at Franklin(trying to trade up) and Stacy, but was willing to gamble on a RB next year with an extra first rounder if i could have swung a deal. I still need a lot of help but moving in the right direction.
