your favorite draft pick

I was just wondering where everyone liked to pick in there drafts. I will use a 12 team redraft with a snake draft because most people have probably done that.

I like the 8th pick, you get one of the stud backs and another solid back or dominant WR in Rd. 2

Changes every year. This year, I'd go #1 and pick Holmes in a redraft league. 25ish TDs + whatever production I get from my #2 back should give me an advantage at the RB position over the rest of the league.

I could easily see ending up with someone like Bennett (or more likely a RB I thought would go around 15 will fall to me) with my 2nd rounder, then would have the first 3rd round pick to spend on a dominant WR like Ward/C. Johnson, or possibly someone like CPepp depending on scoring rules/draft board.

You should probably go with a new poll giving each spot it's own option.

I like to draft at the end of tiers so this year I like 4, but 5 is one that I really want to avoid.

Same thing with 8 and 9.

The problem lies in the fact that 4 (love) and 5 (hate) are paired up together.

I like 1. I am trying this strategy for the first time but draft LT/Priest and then go with 2 stud receivers and a serviceable #2 back in the 4th. I also like the back to back picks. I am 11 rounds into a draft like this and like the way my team looks.

I agree with Bagel about the poll choices. My favorite pick is #2, but I don't like #1 as much.

At #2, you're able to get either Priest or LT and you can still get someone like Rudi, Dillon, or Barlow in the 2nd round.

My pick is #2. You get LT/Priest (hopefully LT) and you get the better guy in the 2nd round. But, that isn't a choice, so I will say 1st.

This year I like picks #1, #2, #8 in that order.

with 1 or 2 you get eithe Priest or LT who IMO are heads and shoulders above the rest. With #8 you get the last of the 3-8 RB studs who I have all pretty much rated the same or close to

I think this greatly depends on the level of competition in your league. If someone jumps for a QB in the 2nd rd, then yeah, one of those RBs will fall back to you if you drafted #1 or #2 originally. However - as I brought up in another thread, if you are in a highly competitive league where the owners know not to grab a QB early, you could be in a world of hurt at the 2.12 - 3.1 picks because the drop in value between WRs and RBs converge right at the same spot.

Ill spell out this situation real quick and see if you guys still want that 1st pick.
Its the 2nd rd - ALL of these players have already been drafted:
The standard 1st rd guys plus
Faulk
Holt
Owens
Dillon
Henry
DDavis
Barlow
CJohnson
Ward
Rudi
Bennett

Who do you draft for your #2 and #3?
The point is that there is very little value at this point. The #2 RBs are picked over, the top teir of WRs are gone, and your only option if you want an elite player is to draft a QB - something that most value hounds abhore - drafting a QB early. If you are in a competitive enough league, taking the first pick or two might actually turn out to be a disadvantage.

Give me the #8 spot.

I like the 4-5 spot, it gives you a top tier RB in the 1st, and then a decent RB in the 2nd.
