Pick #1 – Beach Bums–RB Melvin Gordon- Chargers

Beach Bum landed the first pick of the draft from Capital City in a 2013 deal that also sent Jeremy Maclin, Michael Floyd and a 2nd round pick in last year’s draft. Beach Bum is looking to win now, and Gordon should slot in immediately as his RB2, with upside to be much more. Gordon has a clear path to the carries in San Diego and should pay immediate dividends for Beach Bums’ championship aspirations.

Pick #2 -Who’s Your Haddy– QB Jameis Winston – Bucs

Ben Roethlisberger is the only QB on Haddy’s roster, making Winston the pick here. WYH? also owns pick #11, acquired when he dealt Russell Wilson for Jordan Matthews, 2 firsts and a second rounder, but this year’s top QB options will be elected by then. Winston’s potential out weights his risks. He starts from Day 1, and has terrific WRs to throw to. As in all rookie QBs, Winston will struggle at times but is a potential franchise QB.

Pick #3 -Breaking Bradshaw– WR Amari Cooper -Raiders

BB owns the best team name and logo in the league. They lack, however, depth on their roster. Cooper can come in immediately and contribute to any fantasy team. He has all the skills to be a WR1, as early as this year. David Carr’s development at QB is the keystone for Cooper’s production, but Cooper is a special talent that will produce in almost any situation. Selecting him now gives BB a young franchise player to build around.

Pick #4- Defeat–RB Todd Gurley -Rams

Defeat owns this pick by abusing American Dream’s former owner, in a deal that sent last year’s 7th pick, Blake Bortles, plus a 1st and 2nd rounder for Jay Cutler. Defeat has no obvious team need, and can afford to wait on Gurley to get healthy. He also owns the 6th pick in the draft, furthering his ability to gamble with this pick. Gurley is a complete RB who’s only flaw is the stability of his left knee.

Pick #5- Greased Up Deaf –WR Kevin White -Bears

GUDG really could use some RB help but with Gurley and Gordon off the board, it may be a stretch to grab one at pick 5, and White is a premium talent in a good situation. White will be filling Brandon Marshall’s role. He wont be able to match Marshall’s production next year, but White has the size, speed, jumping ability and hands to be everything Marshall has been throughout his career.

Pick #6- Defeat– WR- Breshad Perriman – Ravens

Defeat, having taken a RB earlier and having Bortles as his QB of the future behind Aaron Rodgers, can go WR here. Perriman continues to get attention for his blazing speed, and size combination. Joe Flacco has the arm to hit Perriman on the fly, and they should hook up on several big plays. Perriman has a reputation for dropping passes, but he is immediately the Raven’s best WR and a long-term keeper.

Pick #7- -Capital City FFC- QB Marcus Mariota -Titans

CC acquired this pick in a deal that sent Drew Brees to Mush in exchange for Jeremy Hill, this pick and a second rounder. Capital City is currently only carrying Ryan Tannehill, making QB a need. Tannehill is improving and will give CC time to develop Mariota. Mariota is known as a runner, but there is much more to his game. He has the skill set to be a dynamic QB is the league for a long time.

Pick #8 –Unicorns and Glitter- RB Amir Abdullah- Lions

U&G was left disappointed as they received this pick, moving up only two spots, by sending Joique Bell and pick #10 to Beach Bum. U&G has options and youth at WR, plus depth at QB. Their RBs are aging and their back-ups are either equally old or non-starters. They need depth here and Abdullah is a multifaceted player who could develop into something special.

Pick #9 –Kittens Mittons- TJ Yeldon – Jags

KM’s search for a RB continues. She has depth and potential sleepers at the position, but really no one she can rely on. Yeldon could be that guy. He is already being touted as the Jags best RB. The Jags have made efforts to improve their offense and Yeldon may be the piece that brings it all together. He was a productive runner at Alabama and that should continue in the pros.

Pick #10 –Beach Bums- WR Nelson Agholor – Eagles

While the Beach Bums have WR depth, adding a guy like Agholor here could be a steal. Agholor steps into Jeremy Maclin‘s role, of whom he has been favorably compared. Chip Kelly’s offense spreads the ball around and should ground and pound with Murray and Mathews, but Agholor will be a starter in this explosive, fast pace offense. He may never be a WR1, but his situation makes him a great pick.

Pick #11– Who’s Your Haddy – RB Tevin Coleman – Falcons

Haddy hold’s Manning’s Last Stands in an aforementioned deal. A team can never have too many Rbs, especially explosive backs like Coleman. Coleman has no real threat in Atlanta, only needing to beat out Devonta Freeman.They may split carries at first but Coleman is the better player and should end up with more carries. Coleman is a home run hitter, and could be a solid RB2. He’s a nice pick in the back-end of the first round.

Pick #12– Drugged Llamas – WR Davante Parker- Dolphins

The defending Champs could use depth at either WR or RB and Parker is too good to pass up. A foot injury will slow him down this year, and he slides down this draft board based on a history of foot and ankle injuries. The talent is too much to pass up. He’s got a great size/speed blend and has the skill set to be a WR1, if his health holds up.
