He ended up with...
3. Brandon Marshall
4. Stevie Johnson
5. Vick (he's an eaglefan but Rivers and Romo also on the board)
6. Garcon (vernon davis taken 2 spots earlier)
8. (vick is injury prone so he took a backup had choice still between rivers and romo but rivers same bye so took Romo)
can't remember the rest
12 team league where QB's dominate the league and his team looks awesome. Had he took a QB at #3, the same wouldn't be said IMO
EDIT**** the fact is there are now 12 quality guys you can start in FF now. and if you have a guy or two that falls in love with rookies (luck and RGIII) it only increases the pool there. while the depth of really good RB's you can leave in week in and week out are dwindling.
I was doing a mock fantasy draft and I went RB with my first 2 picks and ended up with Ray Rice and Demarco Murray with my 1st 2 picks (Jamal Charles was also there). I didn't take a QB till round 5 and it was Eli Manning.
In another one I took Ray Rice with the 1st round pick and then Charles with my 2nd round pick. Then I picked up Vick in round 6 and Roethisberger in like round 10 cause I wanted a good backup to vick. In both mocks I had great RBs, very good WRs, and a good QB.
Then In 1 different one I went QB first (Rodgers) then I took Charles with as my RB in the 2nd round, then I was forced to pick Reggie Bush with my next pick. I had a great QB but my Rbs were meh and my WRs weren''t that special either.
I had the #2 pick in all these mock drafts
There's no question to me that RB is the way to go if you have a top 3 pick. Passing up on Foster, Ray Rice, or McCoy would be dumb.
If i have a top 3 pick I'm going RB, RB, WR, WR (or TE), then WR or QB depending on who is there.
