First Fantasy Draft of the Year Completed

Well, it's that time of year. . .and tonight we had the draft for the Great Northern aPaFL, my first FFL draft of the year.  Maybe someday I'll regale everyone with the story of the Thread aPa. . .but not today.

So, here's how my draft went.  14-team league, and I selected #2 overall.  Snake draft format, natch.

Round 1 - Steven Jackson, RB, St. Louis
Round 2 - Carnell Williams, RB, Tampa Bay
Round 3 - Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona
Round 4 - Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit
Round 5 - Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Seattle
Round 6 - Vernon Davis, TE, San Francisco
Round 7 - Ladell Betts, RB, Washington
Round 8 - Jay Cutler, QB, Denver
Round 9 - Joe Horn, WR, Atlanta
Round 10 - Carolina defense
Round 11 - David Akers, K, Philadelphia
Round 12 - Brandon Jones, WR, Tennessee
Round 13 - Priest Holmes, RB, Kansas City
Round 14 - Bobby Wade, WR, Minnesota
Round 15 - Daunte Culpepper, QB, Oakland

Can you tell that I really put zero prep time into this draft?  Because I did.

I think I got pretty decent starters, but overall I'm not terribly pleased with my team.  And don't worry, DN FFL participants. . .I'll be much better prepared come Friday night.  Bow down when Gonzo comes to your town.

The full draft results can be found here when Yahoo! gets them fixed. My team was the Westward Ho Ho-Hos. (All the teams had to be Canada-based in nature. Hence the names.)
