Anyone who loves NFL fantasy football should play Action PC Football. It is an opportunity to run a complete team, complete with 50 to 55 man rosters.
There are many dedicated Action PC Football commissioners and they all have different wrinkles to the way their leagues are run. I myself run two leagues the BBFL (Britball Football League) and the AMFL (Art Monk Football League).
One League I am in called the KRFL (Knute Rockne Football League) has a TEN round Rookie Draft in May. Yes TEN rounds of rookies, OK it is a 24 team league, but drafting ten rounds of NFL Rookies (who will not play in the league until 2010) is quite taxing even for a devoted NFL fan like me.
The task for me was made even more difficult due to two additional factors. I inherited a team that picked 23rd of 24 in every round, and I also had NO 1st or 3rd round pick.
So with that set of problems, and a disadvantage of not getting to watch NCAA College Football here in England, here are the 8 picks I did make. Feel free to add any useful comments about my selections and thoughts ……..
Overall Pick #47 Connor Barwin LB/DE Cincinnati (Drafted by Texans pick 46)
I hope this guy turns into the new Mike Vrabel, its great he can play so many positions.
Overall Pick #95 Rashad Jennings RB Liberty (Drafted by Jaguars pick #250)
This guy can become the #2 RB in Jax, Fred Taylor is gone and there is a big gap behind MJD.
Overall Pick #119 Nate Davis QB Ball State (Drafted by 49ers pick #171)
Yes he rides the pine for a year, but is Shaun Hill or Alex Smith the real future of the Red and Gold?
Overall Pick #143 AQ ShipleyC Penn State (Drafted by Steelers pick #226)
Gotta love my NittanyLions, what with the 08 Superbowl OL seen as one of the worst ever.
Overall Pick #167 Glover Quin CB New Mexico (Drafted by Texans #112)
I got some value here, and Quin could become the nickel back right away.
Overall Pick #191 Stryker Sulak DE Missouri (Drafted by Raiders pick #199)
This guy has pipe cleaner arms but is a good honest pass rusher.
Overall Pick #215 LaRod Stephens-Howling RB Pitt (Drafted by Cardinals pick #240)
I’m hoping La-Rod becomes a Darren Sproles type returner and utility back.
Overall Pick #239 Derek KinderWR Pitt (Drafted by Bears pick #251)
Kinder has some jets – check out this touchdown below. If he makes it through camp he could be a #3 or #4.
As always I welcome your thoughts………..
