That made for different results than drafting first or 12th, which I did in previous mocks. So, let's look at who I got, when, and what I think (obviously being interested in your comments, which you can make below). These drafts were 12-team, 15-round, PPR format.
|Round||Mock 3||Mock 9||Comment|
|1||Todd Gurley (RB)||David Johnson (RB)||I am a clear fan of Gurley, but all around, Johnson might be a better selection. Like Gurley for potential touches, but Johnson more established all around.|
|2||Julian Edelman (WR)||Julian Edelman (WR)||Hard not to love Tom Brady's favorite receiver. Edelman is tough and simply catches the ball.|
|3||Golden Tate (WR)||Brandin Cooks (WR)||Best available WR in a league that favors guys who catch passes. Of the two, I like Tate a little better stepping into Megatron's gig, but Cooks and Brees is not a bad combo.|
|4||Theo Riddick (RB)||Theo Riddick (RB)||Again, no question I like this guy. How can we not love a running back who bagged 80 passes last year? I think he will get better, helping fill the Calvin Johnson void.|
|5||Michael Crabtree (WR)||Allen Hurns (WR)||Again, kind of interchangable receivers, but both good, and both #2 guys. But, as we know, I like the #2 receivers since they play behind (Amari Cooper and Allen Robinson) #1 guys who will be double teamed a lot.|
|6||Travis Kelce (TE)||Michael Crabtree (WR)||Could not pass Kelce up while Crabtree slipping a round seems like gold.|
|7||Andrew Luck (QB)||Russell Wilson (QB)||The first two mocks I did, both these guys were gone by round seven, and I wound up (happily) with Derek Carr in the ninth. But, could not let these guys get past me at this juncture in the draft.|
|8||Willie Snead (WR)||Zach Ertz (TE)||Kind of round 6 in reverse, with Snead being a fine bye week option while Ertz will play as much as I can get him in the lineup.|
|9||Darren Sproles (RB)||DeAndre Washington (RB)||I am obviously looking at secondary and tertiary running backs who can catch, and both of these guys can.|
|10||DeAndre Washington (RB)||Isaiah Crowell (RB)||Kind of the same theory as above, with Washington slipping a round, while I crapshoot on Crowell.|
|11||Ted Ginn, Jr. (WR)||Jerome Kearse (WR)||Both of these guys are players who have three or four big games, and not much else. I am hoping both have them during Edelman's and Tate's bye weeks.|
|12||Breshad Perriman (WR)||Martellus Bennett (TE)||A gamble on Perriman's talent, while Bennett to spell Ertz.|
|13||Jerome Kearse (WR)||Ted Ginn, Jr. (WR)||Round 11, redux, huh? I guess I like these guys.|
|14||Brandon McManus (PK)||Brandon McManus (PK)||I need a kicker: he is as good as any.|
|15||Oakland Raiders (DEF)||Oakland Raiders (DEF)||Up-and-coming defense is vastly under-rated going into the draft, I think.|
So, there you have it. I think what is interesting is I only took one QB in each league, and in #3 just the one TE in Kelce. In both instances, I was thinking just stream the best available guy out of the free agent pool that week.
