Tom Brady went 7th overall in my first fantasy football draft of the 2012 seasonI recently had my first fantasy football draft of the 2012 season. While doing mock drafts online are great they can’t fully prepare you for the surprises of a real “live” draft. For one, without any computer rankings in front of them you will see a lot more reaches and surprising picks. Also depending on where you live, you can usually expert at least one “homer” pick. The results are posted below with my commentary on the best pick, worst pick, and my pick.

Before I get to the results I’ll give you an overview of the league:

  • 12 teams
  • No PPR
  • Pass TDs worth 6
  • Starting lineup: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR/RB, TE, K, D/ST (6 Bench)

Round 1

1. Aaron Rodgers
2. Drew Brees
3. Arian Foster
4. LeSean McCoy
5. Calvin Johnson
6. Ray Rice
7. Tom Brady
8. Ryan Matthews
9. Cam Newton
10. Larry Fitzgerald
11. Matthew Stafford
12. Matt Forte

Best Pick: Ray Rice- Rice is going in the Top 3 – and I’ve seen him go #1 – so to get him at #6 is an absolute steal. I was hoping he would fall to me, but I was more than fine with Brady.

Worst Pick: Larry Fitzgerald- It’s hard to find a truly bad pick in the first round so I’m nitpicking here. If this was a PPR league I would be fine with Fitz, but I would have gone RB here especially with guys like Chris Johnson, Darren McFadden and MJD on the board.

My Pick: With passing touchdowns worth 6 points, getting an elite quarterback is paramount so even though QB is deep I was thrilled to land Brady at #7. Seeing Newton and Stafford go later in the first round only confirmed my feelings on the selection.
