Live Blogging from the NFL Draft

We take a break form our regular vacation-rehash programming to bring you this special report. It's draft day for Rob's (and my) fantasy football league and Rob and I have the first pick! LT it is for FC Gigantes (that's us).

Steven Jackson has gone number two to the Rams.

It's a run on running backs now... with super-pick Joseph Addai going fifth. Right before Peyton Manning.

Back to us and we've snagged Carson Palmer and Reggie Bush.

After a run on QBs we snagged Eli as our number two and picked up Larry Fitzgerald as our first WR. We picked Fitzgerald over my beloved Reggie Wayne, so we better get some production.

Now we've added Chris Cooley to our Tight End role and Matt Schaub as our back-up QB. Time to start thinking about defense. In our league, you pick individual players, not one team's unit.

Finally we've added some Colts to our line up. Adam Vinatieri and Bob Sanders join the team.

We've finished the draft and here's our line up:
QB Carson Palmer (Cin - QB)
QB Eli Manning (NYG - QB)
WR Larry Fitzgerald (Ari - WR)
WR Javon Walker (Den - WR)
RB LaDainian Tomlinson (SD - RB)
RB Reggie Bush (NO - RB)
TE Chris Cooley (Was - TE)
W/R Jamal Lewis (Cle - RB)
BN Matt Schaub (Hou - QB)
BN Julius Jones (Dal - RB)
BN Donald Driver (GB - WR)

K Adam Vinatieri (Ind - K)

D Bob Sanders (Ind - DB)
DB Justin Miller (NYJ - DB)
DB Chris Hope (Ten - DB)
DL Brian Urlacher (Chi - DL)
DL Antonio Pierce (NYG - DL)

Not bad, eh? If you add up the points from last season for each team's starting players, we're leading by 160 points. Of course, LT is giving us a 250 point boost beyond our backup RB, but we'll take it.
