I debated long and hard between Harrison and Knox in the 6th, and I think I made the wrong choice looking back on it. My WR position is weak as Knox was the last guy remaining before a major drop-off in value. Meanwhile, many quality RB options remained late into the draft. Hence, I made a few desperation picks at WR to make up for my lack of depth. I also reached on Hester, but again, I needed to get him or I would've been completely out of WR options for a few rounds.
Honestly though, if Jackson actually plays (not holding my breath, but hopeful) and Housh signs with the Vikings/Chargers (seemingly probale), I'll be set at WR. Housh going to a powerful offense like either of those would really do my team well. And in the 12th round, why not take a shot?
I also LOVE my QB depth. Kolb was a little above his ADP but I was the 10th team of 14 to take a QB and Flacco was already gone at that point. I didn't want to be stuck with McNabb/Cutler/E. Manning so I took reached for Kolb a little. Orton is a solid backup and I even have Ben who is my ace in the hole if Kolb and Orton both flop.
Hines Ward went with at 3.4, which is ridiculously high.
Reggie Wayne went right in front of me in the 2nd (I actually had pick 2.8 that round because I traded down from my 2.4 spot before the draft started). Other WRs who went before Wayne and my Jennings pick include Boldin, Marshall, Calvin Johnson, Roddy White. I would've LOVED for Wayne to last one more pick but I'll take Jennings.
Rodgers went at 1.4, and all QBs generally went early.
Jamaal Charles went at 3.5. I debated a long time in the 2nd between him and Jennings, but decided that I was confident enough in getting Forte later that I would be better served getting a WR. Since Hines Ward, a guy I was counting on later, went way early, I think this was a good decision. Charles might blow up but I think it was the right move.
So what do you think?
