Draft by Team

The important thing to remember when drafting an 8 man team is that everyone will have depth, everyone will have good players. Figure that every team could have four running backs that are starters for their NFL team. The waiver wire is much hotter in an eight man league since there will be so many players on it. Figure that in this mock, there are already free agents like David Carr, Joey Harrington and Byron Leftwich. There are receivers like Keyshawn Johnson, Donte Stallworth, Plaxico Burress and many more.

What an eight team draft means is that you HAVE to get difference makers. Merely having a solid team is not enough - everyone should have one. And unlike a 12 team draft, digging into all those available running backs rarely makes sense if you are delaying other position starters. You must have as many studs at every position as possible to make the crucial difference.

That said, the reviews are mainly looking for star power - not depth.

Plan: RB, WR, QB, WR, RB
After grabbing Tomlinson, snagged Harrison and then Culpepper for a monster start with difference makers. Scooped up Horn and still landed Benson and Jordan to serve as RB2.

McMichael should be fine at TE and Akers a solid kicker. Defense will be fine but no difference maker.

Overall, you have to like having Culpepper, Tomlinson, Harrison and Horn - top players for the top scoring positions. Plenty of depth of course all around. Could have taken BAL at the 9.01 instead of WR4 Kennison and made this look even stronger. Very strong start that turned into a hunt for depth like it was a 12 team draft.

Starters: Culpepper, Tomlinson, Benson, Harrison, Horn, J. Smith, McMichael, Akers, ATL

Plan Grade: A -

Plan: RB, RB, WR, WR, TE
Fairly standard approach, went with Alexander and then Dillon, followed by best WRs in Andre Johnson and then Wayne. Witten was a nice pickup in the 5th round and Green in the 7th shows how far QBs can be had in this format.

L.J. Smith offers upside at TE2 and PHI defense solid pick with 2/3rds of the draft over. Kickers were late throw ins.

Overall, this looked a lot like a team that was not used to drafting 8 man leagues. The picks were all solid enough, but other than Alexander and later pick of Witten, there are no top 3 studs on this team. There is depth, but compare the results with the team #1 starters. Lack of "big guns" but a solid team resulted. That usually spells a lackluster season in an 8 man league.

Starters: T. Green, Alexander, Dillon, A. Johnson, Wayne, Muhammad, Witten, Graham, PHI

Plan: QB, RB, RB, RB, WR
Grabbing Manning with the 1.03 is perfectly fine in an 8 man league - the best two RBs (and no-risk ones at that) are gone so why not take the safest player in the NFL? Like team #2, what followed that great move was a series of following the runs. Went Julius Jones and then Steven Jackson, but then took RB3 of Martin. No need to grab a backup RB when the starting RBs lasted into the 8th round.

Crumpler is fine at TE but both DEF and PK started well after the good ones were gone.

Overall, a solid team headed by all-world Manning but no other player is really top 8 in their position. That will make competing against all the other solid teams much harder.

Starters: Manning, J. Jones, Jackson, Clayton, Ward, Moulds, Crumpler, J. Brown, CHI

Plan Grade: B-

Plan: RB, WR, RB, RB, WR
Like team #3, went after James and added Holt for a great WR, then after taking K. Jones remained with the RBs to get Westbrook. Bell in the 7th round may do as well as Westbrook in the 4th. WR2 ended up as Burleson and Bennett followed in the 6th.

Waited on TE until the 10th round and still reached Clark which could be a huge steal. Favre in the 9th is another but even though Clark and Favre offer "at least average" potential, the team spent a lot of picks backing up RB and WR while others were grabbing the tops off other positions.

Overall, this is another solid team with almost no stars. James and Holt were nice, but otherwise the rest of the team is likely only average.

Starters: Favre, James, K. Jones, Holt, Burleson, Bennett, Clark, Wilkins, PIT

Plan: RB, RB, WR, WR, WR
While this team delayed some other positions like the others, it appears to have gotten away with it a little better. Went with McAllister and Portis before mining the WRs which produced Owens, Walker and Jackson - that worked out pretty well. Two top 8 RBs and three Top 12 WR's.

Took Heap with the 6.04 (could have been Clark or Shockey) and then backed up RB3 with Carnell Williams. BUF defense at the 10.04 was a great value and Vinatieri an always solid kicker.

The RB's should be fine and the WR's could be stellar. Plan allowed for a good TE and a top DEF. If he can get Collins to fulfill the sleeper role many expect, this team could be a definite force. Didn't like the QB personally, but the rest of the team could definitely post some points.

Starters: Collins, McAllister, Portis, Owens, Walker, D. Jackson, Heap, Vinatieri, BUF

Plan Grade: A-

Plan: RB, RB, RB, TE, WR
This is another team that has the look of a 12 team draft strategy used in an 8 man league. Holmes and McGahee a great start (With Larry Johnson as well). Gonzalez an obvious difference maker, Using the highly valuable third pick on backing up RBs before taking any other position put him behind the curve in most other positions. Barber could have been McNabb or Javon Walker and made the starters stronger.

Palmer and Brooks at the 12/13 is a ridiculously good value but in an 8 man league, not all that unbelievable. Left DEF and PK until the very end which spells no difference makers and possibly a liability.

Overall, another solid team and Holmes/McGahee could do some damage and Gonzo was a great pick. The rest of the team likely won't be much help for the cause. You cannot rely on getting Palmer/Brooks quality that deep and taking a RB5 before DEF or PK doesn't make much sense in this format.

Starters: Palmer, Holmes, McGahee, Boldin, R. Williams, Fitzgerald, Gonzalez, Nugent, MIN

Plan: RB, WR, RB, QB, WR
Started with Lewis and then went WR1 with Chad Johnson at the 2.02 (could have been any WR other than Moss). Took Rudi Johnson at RB2 and then McNabb at the 4.02 nice value indeed.

Shockey at 7.07 could have been Clark or Crumpler and was appropriate and BAL defense at the 9.07 gives an edge.

Overall, drafting in the rear produced a team likely a bit above average with McNabb, C. Johnson and BAL as top tier players. RB is certainly solid as is TE. Not a roster that wows particularly, but one that made decent use of the end picks.

Starter: McNabb, Lewis, R. Johnson, C. Johnson, Chambers, Bruce, Shockey, Janikowski, BAL

Plan Grade: B+

Plan: RB, WR, TE, RB, QB
Started with Domanick Davis and then Randy Moss a sterling pick at the 2.01. Gates at the 3.08 seems too early but in an 8 man league - why not? Still ended up with Ahman Green at RBs and then Bulger at the 5.08 another great pick-up.

Nabbed NE with the 10.01 (could have been any DEF other than BAL) for a nice edge which was repeated in the 13.08 with Vanderjagt for PK.

Overall, this team may lack the stud RB2 you'd like to see but it's pretty hard to argue with the rest of the roster. Top 4 players for QB, WR, TE, PK and DEF. Had the team snuck in Chris Brown, Staley or Foster later on for a more upside RB2 option, I think this would have been an A+ team. For Drafting last, this plan worked out really well otherwise.

Starters: Bulger, Davis, Green, R. Moss, S. Smith, Porter, Gates, Vanderjagt, NE
