May fantasy mock draft: Round 2

It felt good banging out a first-round fantasy mock draft with Aaron Kadkhodai from The Microcosm last week. So good, in fact, that I just had to extend the mock into the second round.

Mocking the real NFL Draft was fun and a good way to kill some time during the offseason. But with this year’s draft in the books and the calender turned over to May, all football fans’ eyes are focused intently on the upcoming NFL and fantasy seasons.

All that means is there will be more fantasy mock drafts than any one man can consume during the next few months, leading up to everyone’s real fantasy draft(s) and the start of the 2008 season. And you know we are here for you, from now until your draft, to help you consume as much fantasy knowledge as possible.

With all that being said, hit the jump to see the results from round 2 of May’s fantasy mock draft. Continue reading

May fantasy mock draft

So I realize the last two months or so have been all about the NFL Draft. And that is fine and all, but it is about time to get back to the good stuff: fantasy mock drafts.

Aaron Kadkhodai from The Microcosm joined me with the even-numbered picks in this mock draft. Take a second to head over to his blog for all kinds of content, mostly humorous. I even do a little side blogging over there with some Hell’s Kitchen recaps and other random goodies.

The last time I put out a mock, it felt a little rusty and off-the-mark. Now that free agency and the NFL Draft are behind us, I am feeling much better about this mock draft. See if you agree after the jump. Continue reading

I am participating in a blogger fantasy football league this season, and we all know the 2007 NFL season is right around the corner (a week from today, to be exact!). The following bloggers are joining me in this venture:

As you can see, I had the 4th pick in the draft and decided to take a chance on Seattle runningback Shaun Alexander. It seems the foot injury and Madden Curse are behind Alexander, and he could be due for a bounce-back season.

Here is how the rest of my draft shook out:

  1. Shaun Alexander, RB
  2. Thomas Jones, RB
  3. Drew Brees, QB Continue reading

Hazean mock draft: Round 2, Pick 11

The 2007 Hazean blogger mock draft is nearing its end and finally made its way back to me. A number of great players have flown off the board since my first pick, St. Louis Rams runningback Steven Jackson.

Having Jackson already on the team makes this pick a little interesting. It means I have a stud at the runningback position to rely on for consistency and so much more. Thus, I intend to take a look at a different position with this pick — wide receiver.

Only the top wide receiver — Steve Smith of the Panthers — has come off the board at this point, which means I have several great options. Here is a quick look:

  • Marvin Harrison, Colts — Talk about a consistent player. His synergy with Peyton Manning has paid off through the years and Harrison keeps himself in top shape. There is no reason to doubt his ability to produce big-time numbers once again this year.
  • Terrell Owens, Cowboys — Owens is a beast, probably the most physically fit of all the wide receivers in the league. He is working with a new quarterback in Tony Romo, who seemed to take a liking to throwing the ball to T.O. last year.
  • Torry Holt, Rams — Just like Harrison, Holt keeps himself in great shape and is able to produce top-tier numbers year after year despite growing older. He clearly is Marc Bulger’s favorite target, but already having one player from the Rams on my roster discourages me from taking the great Holt.
  • Chad Johnson, Bengals — Flashy and fun, Johnson had a rough start to the season last year but emerged as Cincinnati’s main man by season’s end. If he starts out like he fininshed last year, Johnson could be the best wide receiver in the league.

With all that being said, my second round pick in the 2007 Hazean blogger mock draft is none other than Chad Johnson of the Bengals. 

Johnson likely will begin the season much like he ended last season, especially with the absence of No. 3 wide receiver Chris Henry. Carson Palmer will look for his man CJ often and early this year, and my team should reap the rewards.
