Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.03 CBSSports.com Ray Rice RB --- 28 4
Rice is easily a Top 3 selection in any format, and the only thing that could hinder his production is a holdout. If he signs his tender or gets a new deal then he should thrive this season.
2 2.10 CBSSports.com Roddy White WR ATL 33 7
He might be slowing down, he might have too many drops and he might not be the best receiver on his own team. Or he might lead the NFL in targets again, catch 100 passes again, reach at least 1,200 receiving yards for the fifth time in six years and grab at least eight touchdowns for the third year in a row. I'll take my chances with White remaining a stud.
3 3.03 CBSSports.com Greg Jennings WR --- 31 6
The Packers are loaded at WR, but Jennings remains the best target for Aaron Rodgers. I love getting two of my Top 6 receivers in a PPR league.
4 4.10 CBSSports.com Demaryius Thomas WR DEN 27 2
Was planning to take a RB here, but there are a few guys I think will fall to me with my next pick. I don't want to miss out on Thomas when I have the chance to take him. If Peyton Manning returns to form, Thomas should be a stud, especially as my No. 3 WR.
5 5.03 CBSSports.com Doug Martin RB TB 26 R
Glad I went with Thomas with my last pick looking at the run on receivers. This pick is a toss-up for me between Martin, Bush and Turner. I'll go with the upside of Martin and hope he lives up to the hype.
6 6.10 CBSSports.com BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB --- 29 4
He's not a sexy pick, but he's a serviceable No. 3 RB even in this format.
7 7.03 CBSSports.com Philip Rivers QB SD 33 8
Waiting on a QB pays off as Rivers should bounce back from a down year with his high interception rate. The addition of Meachem is solid, and hopefully Gates stays healthy.
8 8.10 CBSSports.com Stevan Ridley RB --- 26 1
Not the best running team by far, but Green-Ellis had at least 11 touchdowns each of the past two years. I like his upside.
9 9.03 CBSSports.com Jermaine Gresham TE --- 26 2
Seems like a tight end on the verge of a breakout.
10 10.10 CBSSports.com LeGarrette Blount RB NE 28 2
Stinks when every player you want is drafted right in front of you. Not a big fan of Blount or taking handcuffs this year, but he's the safest RB on the board right now. At least he's motivated, and if Martin goes down, he'll get the full-time gig back. He should score touchdowns also.
11 11.03 CBSSports.com Brandon LaFell WR NE 28 2
Maybe a little early for LaFell here, but he has the chance to do well starting opposite Smitty and playing with Cam.
12 12.10 CBSSports.com Coby Fleener TE IND 26 R
All this tight end flex talk got me fired up, and I would take Fleener as a starter flex or not. He should carry his rapport with Luck from Stanford to the Colts, and he could be great as a rookie and a star down the road.
13 13.03 CBSSports.com Andrew Luck QB IND 25 R
Back to back Colts. Oy vey. I see him as the last No. 2 QB with upside and no job concerns.
14 14.10 CBSSports.com Mike Goodson RB --- 27 3
I think I've seen Darren McFadden get hurt once or twice so getting his backup is never a back idea. Only thing that could impact Goodson would be a Cedric Benson signing. Goodson won't be on the level of Michael Bush, but he could play well if given a chance. He's worth the risk here.
15 15.03 CBSSports.com Nate Washington WR TEN 31 7
Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright are banged up, and Washington had a career year last season with 74 catches, 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns. He won't come close to those stats again, but he does have 19 touchdowns in three years with the Titans. I'll stick with the theme of Round 15, why not?
16 16.10 CBSSports.com New York Def NYJ    
17 17.03 CBSSports.com Dallas Def DAL    
18 18.10 CBSSports.com Alex Henery PK --- 27 1
19 19.03 CBSSports.com Garrett Hartley PK CLE 28 4
20 20.10 CBSSports.com Nate Burleson WR --- 33 9
Most people expect and hope Titus Young will become the No. 2 receiver for the Lions this year, but it's not like Burleson is coming off the field for extended periods. He still managed 70-plus catches last year and plays in a dynamic passing offense. Easy choice for a WR here.
