Fantasy Draft Feeback v2.0

My next 12-teamer draft just finished tonight. I am the commissioner of this league, and it's filled with a wide mix of experience and skills. About half of the league follows fantasy football regularly and generally knows what they're doing, while the other half drafts two kickers, including one in the 8th round. So, we get a pretty varied mix of drafting. Generally, most of the inexperienced players in my league follow the ESPN draft rankings and cheat sheets though, so its not too far out of whack.

This is a standard scoring 12-team league in ESPN. Well, I should say, it followed the 2010 standards, and we haven't adopted any of the "new" standards from the last couple of years, like "yards allowed" for D/ST and the TE flex. We are the old style: QB - RB - RB - WR - WR - WR/RB - TE - D/ST - K for starters, and then 6 bench spots. So, here is who I ended up with:

QB: Roethlisberger (6), Cutler (9)
RB: McCoy (1), S. Jackson (2), D. Martin (5), R. Williams (10), M. LeShoure (12)
WR: Julio Jones (3), Harvin (4), Wayne (8), Titus Young (11),
TE: Fred Davis (7), Rudolph (14)
D/ST: Giants (15)
K: Hanson (16)

It's not a terrible team for standard, but I think I waited too long at QB. I love my RB and WR, but I'm likely going to have to play matchups at QB (which I'm ok with). I think both of my TEs are underrated, and I expect good things out of at least one of them. In fact, I've already had a trade offer for Rudolph (declined!). I'm unsure about Mikel LeShoure, but if Kevin Smith can't stay on the field (which is likely), I'll take the gamble on a 12th round pick there. I have a lot riding on Doug Martin in the 5th round, and I'm thinking I should have gone QB there (Vick, P. Manning and M. Ryan were all available there), but I gambled and hoped one of them would last into the 6th (too bad, they didn't). Reggie Wayne is my insurance policy for the flex position if Doug Martin busts. Oh, and I'm super stoked to have both Harvin and Rudolph!

Any thoughts on this one? How did I do?

And like the last one, posts your draft results in the comments, and I'll provide some feedback!
