SB Nation NFL Mock Draft: Part 2

New, 3 comments

The SBNation NFL Mock Draft continues from the Seahawks' Field Gulls blog.  Let's get those fantasy brain cells in shape with some draft possibilities:

6) Washington - Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
The Skins need help on the line and Anderson is supposed to be the complete package. He should see starting time right away.  He doesn't have a lot of fantasy impact, though if he starts every week he may be worth something as a bye-week fill in.

7) Minnesota - Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
This would be a calamity for fantasy players and Peterson himself. It means that the Vikings would likely go to a committee of Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor, depressing the fantasy value of both players.  Taylor as the sole starter is one of the top dozen or so fantasy running backs.  Taylor with Adrian Peterson breathing down his neck and stealing goal line carries is a fantasy nightmare.

8)  Atlanta - LaRon Landry, S, LSU
The Falcons desperately need the help at safety so Landry plays right away.  Teams usually try to take advantage of rookies in the secondary so Landry may come up with some solid tackle totals.  If the rickety Lawyer Malloy could come up with 98 tackles and 2 sacks, Landry should be good for close to that amount.

9) Miami - Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
It's about time there's some offense in this mock draft.  This pick would be the end of Daunte Culpepper's time in Miami and end the Trent Green trade rumors.  Quinn would have a decent offense line, a top running back in Ronnie Brown and solid WRs in Chris Chambers and Marty Booker.  Add all that up and Quinn would likely have the best fantasy season of any rookie QB if he landed in Miami.  A good choice for fantasy players.

10) Buffalo (via trade) - Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi
After losing both Takeo Spikes and London Fletcher-Baker, Willis would step in and become an impact fantasy linebacker for the Bills.  Remember, last season Fletcher-Baker had an amazing 146 tackles in the middle.  While Willis isn't as good as F-B (not yet at least), the Bills defensive line should provide him with plenty of opportunities.  Look for over 100 tackles from him in this situation.
