Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Round 5 Round 6 Round 7

Round 8 Pick 1

Justin Mertes-Mistretta- The Sports Bank

Pick: RB Jerome Harrison CLE

Jerome Harrison ran for 561 yards and 5 TDs in the last three games of last season. Plus, the injury to Montario Hardesty allowed Harrison to move into the starting RB spot this off-season. I think the Browns will move the ball better than people think and Harrison will break out this year.

Round 8 Pick 2

Walter Cherepinsky- Walter Football

Pick: WR Robert Meachem NO

Robert Meachem is my top receiver available. Meachem came on at the end of the year and became a big red-zone target for Drew Brees.

Round 8 Pick 3

Paul Greco- Fantasy Pros 911

Pick: TE Chris Cooley WAS

Redskins QB, Donovan McNabb, has a good history with TE. Chris Cooley is one of the best, despite coming off injury. I’m looking for a big season from Cooley and he adds depth to my TE position.

Round 8 Pick 4

Steve Adler- Fantasy Daddy

Pick: RB Clinton Portis WAS

The Redskins running back situation is quite unsettled, but I will gladly take Portis with 180 carries behind a Mike Shannahan OL. I’m not expecting great things from Clinton but I think he does have something left in the tank.

Round 8 Pick 5

Scott Carasik- Scardraft

Pick: DEF Atlanta

Going to be a complete and utter homer here. I think Atlanta’s defense will be much improved with Weatherspoon and Robinson in the fold and think they could very well be a top 5 scoring defense this year.

Round 8 Pick 6

Eric Stashin- Rotoprofessor

Pick: WR Steve Breaston ARI

He steps in as the #2 WR in Arizona with the departure of Anquan Boldin. In need of depth at the position with some risk involved in having Terrell Owens as my WR3, I’m going with the top WR left on my draft board here.

Round 8 Pick 7

Sam Arker- Rothstein Sports

Pick: WR Jeremy Maclin PHI

BPA here after a great showing in week one of the pre season. Maclin has the skill set to explode in Phili’s offense.

Round 8 Pick 8

Hunter Ansley- Draft Zoo

Pick: RB Reggie Bush NO

I need running back depth, and although he’s not your traditional runner, Reggie Bush is good enough value for me near the end of the eighth round. He’s going to touch the ball a lot. Especially now that Kim Kardashian won’t be touching it for him.

Round 8 Pick 9

Steven Lourie- Football Fan Spot

Pick: QB Donovan McNabb WAS

Need a quarterback. I wanted to get one earlier (Romo, Rivers, Favre) but kept missing my chance. Waiting for a relatively safe bet like McNabb here in the 8th ended up working out pretty well. Too much is being made about his lack of offensive supporting cast. He’s got a revamped offensive line and solid talent in the receiving corps. Remember, this is the same guy who made NFC Championship after NFC Championship with horrible receivers before TO showed up and a head coach who never ran the ball. Expect similar stats to the last 3 years, 3300-4000 yards passing, 19-23 touchdowns, 7-11 interceptions and he’s still above average rushing the football.

Round 8 Pick 10

Jeff Malloy- Beast or Bust

Pick: WR Kenny Britt TEN

With Santonio Holmes out for the first four games of the year and Percy Harvin’s health about to give us a migraine, we thought it would be smart to grab another high upside WR in the 8th round. Kenny Britt, who was the younger player in the NFL last year, was a guy we have had our eye on for a few rounds. He has been compared to Brandon Marshall and it fits, both on and off the field. The QB situation is going to hold him back a bit, but he is easily the most physically gifted WR on the Titans roster. A true breakout may be another year away, but 1,000 yards and 5-8 TD’s are within reach this year.

Round 8 Pick 11

Vin Sadicario- FF Toolbox

Pick: RB Ahmad Bradshaw NYG

I feel comfortable drafting Ahmad Bradshaw as my #3 running back, and expect him to start the season with at least a 50/50 split of the Giants carries out of the backfield. Bradshaw outplayed Brandon Jacobs last season, and while Jacobs should get the goal-line carries, Bradshaw is a superior pass catcher. I expect Bradshaw to outproduce Jacobs this season.

Round 8 Pick 12

Ryan Lester- Lester’s Legends

Pick: RB Ricky Williams MIA

Ronnie Brown can’t stay healthy. Ricky Williams just keeps on producing. I can’t think of a better 4th RB.

Woah, Atlanta’s defense in the 8th round?! Let me know what you think.
