The skill position pace slowed ever-so-slightly on day two of the 2012 draft, with nine such players going off the board in round two and another 10 hearing their name called in round three.
Round One Fantasy Fallout »
33. WR Brian Quick, Rams
One of the reasons the Rams felt they could live with missing out on Justin Blackmon was their pre-draft private workout of Quick. He’s raw but incredibly athletic, drawing comparisons to Terrell Owens. He’ll have to learn on the job, but with the likes of Brandon Gibson and Steve Smith littering the St. Louis depth chart he’ll definitely get the opportunity to become Sam Bradford’s preferred target.
34. TE Coby Fleener, Colts
Reunited with college teammate Andrew Luck, Fleener will team with fellow rook Dwayne Allen (the first pick in Round Three) to give Indy a Gronk/Hernandez vibe all its own. Rookie tight ends rarely produce, but there are plenty of reasons—familiarity with his quarterback and a dearth of other targets, to name two—Fleener bucks that trend.
43. WR Stephen Hill, Jets
Hill can put his freakish size/speed combo platter to work in the Jets’ run-first offense, where he’ll be at best wingman to Santonio Holmes—but coming out of Georgia Tech’s triple option, he’s used to being a secondary option. Despite the Big Apple hype that’s sure to accompany Hill’s arrival, temper your fantasy expectations; best-case he posts a couple big games playing the Demaryius Thomas role in a Tim Tebow Broadway production.
