The Draft

Posted: April 29, 2011 in General

Switching gears to my first love.  We evaluate the 2011 NFL Draft, it also come with some hope that the season will begin as planned.  Looking at the draft I am trying to evaluate the most promising rookie as far as fantasy purposes go for the 2011-20012 season.  The QB’s are hit or miss I don’t see a Matt Ryan in this bunch.  Ryan’s stats is rookie year were mediocre at best when it comes to the fantasy game.  Mark Ingram is the rookie to target.  The Saint’s selection of the Alabama man signals the end of Reggie Bush in New Orleans most likely.  Even though the Saints aren’t a run first team we saw what Chris ivory could do when Drew Brees is spreading out the offense.  We will have to see how camp goes, but right now I would target him in the 2nd or 3rd Round in a standard league draft.  Some people may place him 1st round, except for those he made that leap last year with Ryan Mathews.  I look for Ingram to break 1000 yards with 6-8 tds.  The selections of all QB’s outside of Cam Newton were pure reaches based on need and the lack of free agency.  Blain Gabbert wouldn’t even be a 1st round pick if Luck was in the draft.  I am high on Dalton so it will be interesting to see how he plays out.
