Dave and I will be doing some blogs from this weekend's NFL Draft. Make sure you check it out. We'll also follow up with a video Monday, some commentary during the week and our first Fantasy draft with the rookies actually on their new teams. That will start Monday, and you can see how we all do on the site.
Now, let's play Fantasy Football with the NFL Draft. No linemen or defensive players. Just offensive players based on need. This is all hypothetical, but feel free to send me your picks as well.
Miami: Offensive need - QB, WR, TE. Pick - QB Chad Henne. Let's face it, John Beck isn't going to get it done, and Henne has a big arm and the size Bill Parcells covets. And the Dolphins can get him in the second round on the real draft.
Atlanta: Offensive need - QB, WR, TE. Pick - QB Brian Brohm. The last time the Falcons took a chance on a Louisville product they got burned. But Brohm's not going back to college.
Oakland: Offensive need - RB, WR. Pick - I don't want to see Darren McFadden with the Raiders because I think he will suffer there. So Oakland gets Chris Johnson of East Carolina. He's fast and will work well with Justin Fargas and Michael Bush.
Baltimore: Offensive need - QB, WR. Pick - Matt Ryan is a lock in the real draft and this one.
Cincinnati: Offensive need - WR, TE. Pick - They need someone to replace the whiny 85 so they take WR Jerome Simpson from Coastal Carolina. Hey, you didn't know who Chad Johnson or T.J. Houshmandzadeh was either before they made the NFL.
New Orleans: Offensive need - WR, TE. Pick - Eric Johnson isn't going to help them win many game. They take TE Fred Davis from USC.
Detroit: Offensive need - RB, QB, TE. Pick - The Lions get the second best running back in the draft in Illinois' Rashard Mendenhall.
Kansas City: Offensive need - WR. Pick - They got their QB, now they get another WR in Malcolm Kelly from Oklahoma.
Houston: Offensive need - RB, WR. Pick - They need a young running back and another WR opposite Andre Johnson. We'll go running back and take Kevin Smith.
Philadelphia: Offensive need - WR, TE. Pick - The Eagles may make a play to get Chad Johnson. If not, they take WR James Hardy from Indiana.
Tampa Bay: Offensive need - WR, TE. Pick - The Bucs surprise their fans by taking TE Brad Cottam from Tennessee. If he ends up like Jason Witten, look out.
Washington: Offensive need - WR, QB. Pick - Jason Campbell has been a disappointment thus far, so the Redskins invest in a project and take Delaware QB Joe Flacco. He's two years away from starting anyway, so they have time to see if Campbell can finally step up.
Dallas: Offensive need - RB, WR. Pick - This is another lock: Arkansas RB Felix Jones.
Seattle: Offensive need - WR, TE, QB. Pick - The Seahawks are looking to win now, so they need to address some holes in the receiving game. As bad as their wide receiver situation is, tight end is worse. They take Martellus Bennett from Texas A&M.
San Diego: Offensive need - RB, QB. Pick - The Chargers need a running back who can backup LaDainian Tomlinson now that Michael Turner is in Atlanta. They take Ray Rice here from Rutgers since he can catch the ball also.
San Francisco: Offensive need - QB, WR. Pick - Alex Smith has been a bust, and Shaun Hill might only be a short-term solution. The 49ers look long-term here and go with a QB in Josh Johnson from San Diego.
Green Bay: Offensive need - QB, TE. Pick - Aaron Rodgers will take over for Brett Favre, but the Packers have a history of taking QBs in every draft when the need is there. They start again with Ricky Santos from New Hampshire.
