Even thought this is VERY late, I have the benefit of hindsight since we're now 3 games into the season. Overall not a bad draft. The obvious would shoulda MIGHT be not taking Holmes at #4 and drafting Portis. I support your choice based on what we knew to be Holmes injuries at the time. NOW, I'd probably opt for Holmes, but it's still a toss up IMO since he's still not 100% healthy (although he still got 2 TDs at less than 100%).

Yeah, TB DEF was boneheaded in Round 5. But you may have made up for it by getting Garcia as late as you did in the 9th. His injuries aside that's a pretty late pick on him and great buy IMO. Following up with Green wasn't a bad play- I would have opted for some more RB/WR then, but it worked out OK for you.

Your starting WR corps looks pretty good. But yes, you need some depth there, and it's more than Steve Smith will likely deliver.

At this point, if you are reading this in week 3 I'd consider dumping Toefield and the STL DEF and grab a couple hot WR. Reggie Wayne (IND), Anguan Boldin (ARIZ), or even the seemingly reborn Peter Warrick (CINN) come to mind.

I've been away a while but I'll post more if others follow suit. Reply if you want to talk more on the draft.
