Here’s the team I drafted from the 3rd position in my first ever RapidDraft free draft .
QB – Drew Brees (Round 2)
RB – Chris Johnson (Rd 1)
RB – Shonn Greene (Rd 3)
WR – Mike Sims-Walker (Rd 4)
WR – Pierre Garcon (Rd6)
WR – TJ Housh (Rd 7)
TE – Vernon Davis (Rd 5)
DEF – Dallas (Rd 12)
K – Rob Bironas (Rd 14)
RB – Montario Hardesty ( Rd 8 )
RB – LaDainian Tomlison (Rd 11)
WR – Donald Driver (Rd 9)
WR- Jacoby Jones (Rd 10)
WR – Mario Manningham (Rd 15)
WR – Demaryius Thomas (Rd 13)
WR – Armanti Edwards (Rd 20)
QB – Matt Hasselback (Rd 16)
TE – Todd Heap (Rd 17)
Def – Chicago (Rd 18)
I was ecstatic getting Chris Johnson with the 3rd pick and could not pass up. I was planning on taking Ray Rice with that pick, thinking Johnson and AP would go 1-2. But at the third spot, I’d be crazy to not take Chris Johnson. Brees was the second QB taken off the board after Rodgers. Brees was a tough choice, as I was also looking at DeSean Jackson and rookie RB Jahvid Best at that position too. It was too early to take Best and I like Jackson this year, but did not want to miss out on a top tier QB.
Although I don’t have the best WRs on my team, I’m happy with the depth I have, especially getting Driver, Jones and Manningham in the later rounds. With Sims-Walker, Garcon and TJ, I’m comfortable starting any six of those during the season. I sacrificed getting Brees rather than a quality #1 WR. Hopefully it pays off.
Even if this isn’t the $100,000 winning team, I have 59 other opportunities to draft a different team to compete for that cash prize. And with this fast pace draft, I’ll be taking advantage of all of those 59 drafts I have left.
