B hosted the second annual Medieval Gridiron live draft
at his new place in Corona. It was hot
. Like really hot.
Everyone had their own idea
of a predraft cram session, but when the action started it was all intensity.
I drew tenth of fourteen.
1. DeAngelo Williams
- Picked him over Shonn Greene, Steven Jackson, and Joseph Addai. Hope that pans out. (Last year he was round 1)
2. Calvin Johnson
- Lions can't get shut out every week. (2)
3. Brandon Jacobs
- Not my ideal second running back, but hopefully solid. (1)
4. Clinton Portis
- Go Washington with their ancient, talented RBs and QB. They could flop horribly, but Shanahan knows how to make things happen. Of course with three dinosaurs running the ball there'll be a lot of sharing, but I think Portis will be the standout. (2)
5. Tony Gonzalez
- TG does not disappoint. By this round I had my RB corps, a high end receiver, and there were no top tier QBs left. (4)
6. Carson Palmer
- Cincy has enough weapons that he could be a surprise this year. (6)
7. T.J. Houshmandzadeh
- My top prospect to duke it out for the number two WR spot. I'm neglecting that position a bit, but I can't expect to have Wayne, Moss, and Johnsons (Calvin and Andre) every year. (3)
8. Darren McFadden
- We'll see if he can beat Bush for the starting job, and if Oakland can bring game. (4)
9. Eddie Royal
- With Marshall gone Royal is Denver's WR. They may be horrible, but they'll still pass. (6)
10. Larry Johnson
- Washington could be on their fourth string RB by week two, so Johnson was cheap Portis insurance. (5)
11. Bears D
- Hopefully I can't go wrong here. Urlacher and Hester FTW. (11)
12. David Buehler
- High scoring team with a qb that overthrows his receivers on occasion, under a dome. (-)
- 1 week: GP Indy and F1 at a most excellent of race courses, Spa.
- 3 weeks: Halo.
- 4 weeks: Norcal, Civ.
- 8 weeks: Fallout, DC.
