Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.02 CBSSports Doug Martin RB TB 26 R
Martin nearly had 2,000 total yards with 12 touchdowns as a rookie, and coach Greg Schiano told me at the NFL owner's meeting in March that he wants to use Martin more in passing situations. That could mean an increase from his 49 catches. He's an up-and-coming star, and he should continue to play well in his sophomore season.
2 2.11 CBSSports Randall Cobb WR GB 24 1
You have to love the upside here for what should be Aaron Rodgers' favorite weapon. We all know the comments made by Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy that Cobb could catch 100 passes, and it's a reachable goal after he had 80 receptions last year. He's also entering his third year, and whether or not you still believe in the third-year receiver theory, Cobb is in line for a breakout campaign.
3 3.02 CBSSports Chris Johnson RB NYJ 29 4
Johnson may never again be a Top 5 running back, but he's still a featured rusher on a team that plans to remain run heavy. The Titans beefed up the offensive line this offseason with Andy Levitre and Chance Warmack, and Johnson has at least 43 catches in four of five seasons. In some ways you can consider him a steal in this spot.
4 4.11 CBSSports Reggie Wayne WR --- 36 11
Wayne was rejuvenated last season with the addition of Andrew Luck. He had 100 catches for the third time in four years. While a regression is likely since he'll be 35, he's still capable of at least 90 catches, 1,200 yards and six touchdowns. He's hard to pass up at this point.
5 5.02 CBSSports Jason Witten TE DAL 32 9
The downside with Witten is he doesn't score touchdowns. The upside is he had 110 catches last season and at least 94 catches in three of the past four years. He's a volume tight end, and if he somehow manages an extra touchdown or two this season he's going to challenge for being the best player at his position.
6 6.11 CBSSports Tavon Austin WR STL 24 -1
My first of two potential gamble picks, but I love his upside. The Rams are saying all they want to do is get the ball in his hands, and this is a guy with at least 100 catches in each of the past two seasons at West Virginia. He could be the next Percy Harvin or Randall Cobb, and I'll buy into the hype, especially as my third receiver.
7 7.02 CBSSports Shane Vereen RB NYG 26 1
My second gamble pick. This might seem early for Vereen, but he's one of my favorite players this year. Even though Stevan Ridley is the starter, Vereen is going to get plenty of touches as he replaces Danny Woodhead. With the Patriots needing help in their receiving corps, Vereen is a strong candidate to help out. He could easily reach 1,000 total yards and seven touchdowns, which is how many Woodhead scored last year. He's going to surprise a lot of people this season with how he plays.
8 8.11 CBSSports Andre Brown RB --- 28 3
David Wilson is the guy to target for the Giants this year, but Brown will get his share of carries in this tandem. And Brown should be the one working at the goal line, and he could also be used more than expected in passing situations if Wilson struggles in pass protection. I was fine getting him here as my fourth running back.
9 9.02 CBSSports Andrew Luck QB IND 25 R
This felt like a good spot to take a QB since I wasn't sure any of my remaining Top 12 options -- Luck, Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick or Tony Romo -- would make it back to me in Round 10. Turns out I was right, and I like Luck going into his second year and being reunited with his college offensive coordinator in Pep Hamilton.
10 10.11 CBSSports Ryan Broyles WR DET 26 R
Put Broyles on all your sleeper lists, especially in PPR formats, since he's expected to at least be the slot receiver for the Lions. Keep in mind Matthew Stafford set an NFL record last year in pass attempts, and Broyles looked great when healthy. Of course, two ACL tears in as many years is a risk, but his upside makes him worth it in this spot.
11 11.02 CBSSports Bryce Brown RB BUF 23 R
This is a lottery ticket in case LeSean McCoy gets hurt again. As we saw last year, when McCoy went down with a concussion, Brown could be a star. He's inconsistent, but he also has more experience this season in what should be a run-heavy offense for the Eagles. I'll gladly let him sit on my bench and see what develops under Chip Kelly.
12 12.11 CBSSports Brandon LaFell WR NE 28 2
He's still the No. 2 receiver for Cam Newton, and he flashed some signs of potential last year before getting hurt. He's marginal talent, but he's in an exceptional spot.
13 13.02 CBSSports Michael Vick QB --- 34 11
Hey, you never know. If he beats out Nick Foles as expected then all he has to do is stay healthy, right?
14 14.11 CBSSports Seattle Def SEA    
15 15.02 CBSSports Mike Gillislee RB MIA 24 -1
This is another lottery ticket. Lamar Miller should be a star, but if he falters or gets hurt I could see Gillislee getting the nod over Daniel Thomas.
16 16.11 CBSSports Heath Miller TE PIT 32 7
He's a risky pick coming off the torn ACL, but he should be fine by the time I need a backup tight end for Jason Witten on his bye in Week 11.
17 17.02 CBSSports Terrance Williams WR DAL 25 -1
He should be the Cowboys No. 3 receiver, and if something happens to Dez Bryant or, more likely, Miles Austin then he could be in the starting lineup. The Cowboys like his upside, and so do I.
18 18.11 CBSSports Mike James RB TB 23 -1
The handcuff for Doug Martin as long as he wins the job as expected. In a draft this deep, you should be able to handcuff your No. 1 running back if you plan accordingly.
19 19.02 CBSSports Stephen Gostkowski PK NE 31 6
He's still the No. 1 kicker on my board. He should still be a top kicker even if the Patriots offense appears to be in shambles.
20 20.11 CBSSports Toby Gerhart RB JAX 28 2
Another lottery ticket. If Adrian Peterson gets hurt, Gerhart could be a solid option as we saw in 2011.
