Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.05 DraftCalc.com Calvin Johnson WR DET 28 5
After the big three, Foster, McCoy and Rice, the only two players I consider are Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson. I think with a top 4-5 overall pick, it's important to land a player that can finish No. 1 at his position. You can't go wrong with either Rodgers or Calvin with that No. 4 or 5 slot this year.
2 2.08 DraftCalc.com DeMarco Murray RB DAL 26 1
DeMarco Murray has top 12-14 overall upside, so even though he still feels a bit unproven, this isn't exactly a reach and it feels somewhat low-risk/high-reward. Calvin Johnson and DeMarco Murray is a fine start given we went WR with our first-round pick.
3 3.05 DraftCalc.com Julio Jones WR ATL 25 1
FFToday just said "Unfortunately Jennings got nabbed"... Well, unfortunately Green just got nabbed, as Green was was my top-ranked player left at that point. Julio Jones is a nice second prize, though, as he is truly capable of top 5 fantasy WR numbers in 2012. A.J. Green and Julio Jones are special - Both receivers are going to explode this season and I feel that both receivers will be top 8-12 overall picks heading into all leagues and formats next year.
4 4.08 DraftCalc.com Michael Vick QB NYJ 34 11
We predict a bounce-back season out of Vick in 2012. Drafting Vick in the 4th and 5th round is low-risk/high-reward. He has top 5QB upside, and at this value, there just is really no risk.
5 5.05 DraftCalc.com C.J. Spiller RB BUF 27 2
We have high hopes for Spiller in 2012. He is a very sneaky low-end RB2 heading into 2012.
6 6.08 DraftCalc.com Jermichael Finley TE FA* 27 4
We expect Finley to have that breakout season he was meant to have last year. He truly is as talented as Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski... And he has as good a QB as both. As long as he is healthy, everything is pointing to Finley exploding in 2012.
7 7.05 DraftCalc.com Denarius Moore WR OAK 25 1
Moore has top 10-15 WR upside. He is no lock to produce, which is why he is a sleeper... but as a WR3, he is low risk/high reward!
8 8.08 DraftCalc.com Mark Ingram RB NO 24 1
Ingram is no lock to produce in 2012, and he may not even get starter carries right away... but we like this kid and talent should shine through! By mid-season, Ingram could be a very decent fantasy RB2, or at least a great flex option.
9 9.05 DraftCalc.com Santonio Holmes WR CHI 30 6
Holmes isn't exactly a spring chicken, but I think he is more than capable of extremely outperforming this draft value.
