Smitty’s Take: There were actually no real surprises in the first-round of this mock draft, except for maybe Aaron Rodgers not getting drafted in it. Who would I bump out of the first-round, though? Well, that’s the tough part, as all of the names listed above are deserving of a top 12 overall pick; if forced to single out one player, I’d probably give Marshawn Lynch’s spot to Rodgers, but again, Lynch’s place in the first-round is arguable… Some will say that CJ Spiller is just too high at 1.03, but I honestly think that he is a good bet to produce top 2-5 fantasy running back numbers in 2013… I feel the same way about Trent Richardson, who was drafted at 1.04, but my guess is Richardson will be a regular 1.03-1.06 selection in upcoming 2013 fantasy football drafts, whereas Spiller may slip a little further than 1.03-1.06 in most drafts. It’s early, Spiller could lock into that 2-3 overall range, but I think we here at DraftCalc, users and staffers, are a bit ahead of the curve on the CJ Spiller Breakout Show that airs in September of 2013. If I had to guess, come August, Spiller’s ADP will settle around 1.07-1.12 and Richardson’s ADP will remain around 1.04-1.06. Great news for all of us Spiller owners and believers… Ray Rice (1.05) and Arian Foster (1.07) are both still 1.01 capable in dynasty start-ups, so we can actually label both as first-round steals in this mock… Foster falling past 1.05-1.06 is starting to look like a trend so far this off-season, which is great news for those that still believe that he still has 2-3 elite seasons left in the tank… LeSean McCoy is a tough player to rank heading into 2013, and right here I write about how the runner is a huge dynasty risk unless you handcuff him to Bryce Brown… Brown has to be one of the most important handcuffs we’ve come across in years. Owning both runners is a pretty safe bet for strong RB1-type numbers, and the combo actually feels about as safe as any running back taken as high as 1.05 above; however, without Brown (meaning only McCoy is owned), well, that approach is about as worrisome to me as McCoy playing without a helmet on Sundays. I’m not claiming that Brown is as good as McCoy, in fact it’s not even close; however, that locked-up situation will produce elite numbers regardless of who is getting the carries.

2.01 – Dez Bryant (WTCM)
2.02 – Aaron Rodgers (tmoney)
