The first thing I did was remove Rob Gronkowski from the list as any owner in their right mind would not bother drafting him within the first 7 rounds.  That being said there are still a TON of guys that went "undrafted" in this 10 team ESPN Mock Draft based on ADP and each team drafted consists of 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, and 1 TE.  Just a single WR and QB were drafting in the 1st round and just 2 more QBs and 3 more WRs in the 2nd.  So out of the first 20 draft picks, just 7 were not a RB.  We had one team draft two WRs (Team 7, Calvin Johson and A.J. Green), two teams draft a RB/QB combo (Team 2, Arian Foster and Peyton Manning) (Team 8, C.J. Spiller and Drew Brees), one team went QB/RB (Team 9, Aaron Rodgers and LeSean McCoy) and two teams go RB/WR (Team 1, Adrian Peterson and Brandon Marshall) (Team 5, Ray Rice and Dez Bryant).  That is going to be the norm this season, as teams are shifting to running back by committees, the stud backs are slowly diminishing!  Grab them while you can!  Don't be silly and draft your QB or WR or TE in the first two rounds!  After the jump we break down each round and discuss the MANY available QBs and WRs which will help you understand why there is no need to rush into drafting a player of that position! table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: ; font-size: 14px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Team 1Team 2Team 3Team 4Team 5Adrian Peterson, Min RBArian Foster, Hou RBMarshawn Lynch, Sea RBDoug Martin, TB RBRay Rice, Bal RBBrandon Marshall, Chi WRPeyton Manning, Den QBStevan Ridley, NE RBMatt Forte, Chi RBDez Bryant, Dal WRTom Brady, NE QBJulio Jones, Atl WRDemaryius Thomas, Den WRJimmy Graham, NO TEFrank Gore, SF RBMontee Ball, Den RBDavid Wilson, NYG RBMatt Ryan, Atl QBVictor Cruz, NYG WRWes Welker, Den WRMarques Colston, NO WRReggie Wayne, Ind WRJordy Nelson, GB WRColin Kaepernick, SF QBMike Wallace, Mia WRTorrey Smith, Bal WRAntonio Brown, Pit WREric Decker, Den WRSteve Smith, Car WRMatthew Stafford, Det QBDennis Pitta, Bal TEKyle Rudolph, Min TEOwen Daniels, Hou TEPierre Garcon, Wsh WRAntonio Gates, SD TE table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: ; font-size: 14px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Team 6Team 7Team 8 Team 9Team 10Jamaal Charles, KC RBCalvin Johnson, Det WRC.J.

Also, look at what is left at the RB position, Frank Gore, Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew.  Round 4:   Cam Newton and Matt Ryan in the 4th round?  I'll take it!  Big name receivers still available in bunches!  This is why we say don't waste a pick on one early!  I am not sure I would be drafting Montee Ball just yet, but he should have some value.  It's scaring taking a rookie RB, but at least you know on Peyton Manning's Broncos, teams will have to be more concerned with the pass attack.Rounds 5-7: This is where you find your TEs like Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten, and those veteran consistent receivers in Dwayne Bowe and Reggie Wayne. Do not use this pick on rookie WRs like Tavon Austin. It is way to early for a major risk like that.
