End of Draft Day

Posted on: April 26, 2008 10:16 pm

Wow, what a first day. A lot of nice picks that will help your Fantasy team in 2008.

Let's wrap up Round 2.

Picks I like and dislike from where we left off.

Likes: Washington takes TE Fred Davis and WR Malcolm Kelly, Philadelphia takes WR DeSean Jackson, Pittsburgh takes WR Limas Sweed, Green Bay takes QB Brian Brohm, Miami takes QB Chad Henne, Tampa Bay takes WR Dexter Jackson, Dallas takes TE Martellus Bennett.

Dislikes: Baltimore takes RB Ray Rice.

Washington had a tremendous second round when it comes to skill players, taking WR Devin Thomas along with Davis and Kelly. They are going to be explosive in 2008, and QB Jason Campbell should be giddy. The Eagles needed a WR, and they got a steal in Jackson at No. 49 overall.

Like the Redskins, the Steelers added to their potent offense with RB Rashard Mendenhall in the first round and now Sweed, who will eventually replace Hines Ward. The Packers now have great QB depth with Brohm and Aaron Rodgers. And the Dolphins have a steal in Henne at No. 57.

The Ravens could have taken a receiver in Early Doucet or Andre Caldwell instead of Rice and taken him later. Running back was not a position of need, but wide receiver is. They need to address that spot soon.

Sunday should be fun. Look for more to come ...
