Final team of the year. Your thoughts please

I drafted my second and final team last night. This was a standard snake draft and I had the 3rd position. 10 team league, start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DST. Standard scoring, no PPR.

1. (3) Ray Rice RB
2. (18) Reggie Wayne WR
3. (23) DeSean Jackson WR
4. (38) Wes Welker WR
5. (43) Jahvid Best RB
6. (58) Matt Forte RB
7. (63) Hines Ward WR
8. (78) Ronnie Brown RB
9. (83) Carson Palmer QB
10. (98) Vincent Jackson WR
11. (103) Ben Roethlisberger QB
12. (118) Owen Daniels TE
13. (123) Philadelphia DEF
14. (138) Robbie Gould K

Overall I really like this team. I will like it a lot better when/if vJax moves to a team. I probably reached too much for Wes Welker and I didn't get a quarterback until the 9th round, so I'm not super confident there. I also waited a long time for my TE, but everyone else had picked theirs so I wasn't in a rush. I think I'll be able to play matchups for my RB2 and am crossing my fingers that Ronnie Brown stays healthy. Speaking of health, should I pick up Rice's handcuff (McGahee)? We only get 5 bench so it's hard to justify dedicating a roster spot for an insurance pick.

Ronnie was still around in the 8th?! That's a steal. You look stacked at RB/WR. TE should be fine; Daniels won't be pulling in 12 points a game like he did last season before he went down, but he's not going to disappear either. QB is more of an issue; I'd be worried about Palmer after last year. I've dropped VJax from my teams, he's guaranteed to miss 1/3 of the season and is likely to either miss the whole thing or wind up playing for the 'Hawks or 'Skins.

Yeah I was happy to get Ronnie Brown where I did. This is my fourth year playing with these guys and everyone is down on Brown due to his injury issues. It's mainly one guy that's very vocal about how Ronnie Brown ruined his season (twice).

I never really worry about TEs unless I can get a clear top tier guy. I might drop Daniels before the start of the season and pick up Zach Miller, who I know a lot of people are high on this year.

I agree about the QB issue, but I'm hoping that Palmer may become a top guy again with Ochocinco and T.O. to throw to. VJax was a sentimental pick since he was on my championship team last season. I will probably hold on to him for a couple weeks to see if anything develops before dropping him.

Thanks for the input.

Great team at WR/RB. Agree with the above mentioned concerns.Would add one caution about Z Miller, although I like his ability, he did have 2 concussions last year requiring him to miss time. Once that happens, more are likely. Good luck this year!
