Draft Numero Uno

My first draft happened yesterday and as I've mentioned, a friend drafted on my behalf since I was on an airplane. The draft turned out pretty well - I'm posting my team below in order of drafting (I've put the overall draft number in parentheses; it's a 12-team league and I was drafting 9th). I'm feeling pretty good about it as long as Tony Scheffler is in good shape and playing like the great TE I know he can be. I'm still on vacation right now but when I return later this week, I'll have some posts chock full of the latest in fantasy news for those with drafts still to me; I still have 4 more drafts - though one is for my brother-in-law and one is just a 4-round keeper league.

So without further ado, here's my first 2007 FF team - any feedback?
1. Laurence Maroney (9)
2. Cedric Benson (16)
3. Marc Bulger (33)
4. Marques Colston (40)
5. Baltimore (57)
6. Darrell Jackson (64)
7. Julius Jones (81)
8. Jerricho Cotchery (88)
9. Ben Roethlisberger (105)
10. Michael Turner (112)
11. Derrick Mason (129)
12. Robbie Gould (136)
13. Anthony Gonzalez (153)
14. Tony Scheffler (160)
15. Adrian Peterson (Bears) (177)

I'm surprised Adrian Peterson fell that far. That's a great pick for the fifteenth round - especially since he's had a nice pre-season.

Also, Baltimore in the 5th was a little high, but you'll have a good defense this year.

Not bad considering you were on an airplane! Good luck this season... and thanks for a great blog.

I'll have you know that when your friend took Benson in round two it crushed me and threw my whole draft out the window.

tc that isn't the same Adrian Peterson that is a rookie this year out of Oklahoma. It's the Bears backup. BUT...he is the guy that I see with the possibility to have an out of nowhere break out season if anything were to happen to Benson. They love him in Chicago and he has always done well when given the chance to play.

Thanks for pointing that out Lee. I hadn't noticed first time around.

It makes a little more sense now.
