3. JJ Zachariason — David Johnson, RB3
4. Patrick Daugherty — Ezekiel Elliott, RB4 
5. Josh Norris — Alvin Kamara, RB5
6. Raymond Summerlin — Antonio Brown, WR1
7. Mike Clay — Saquon Barkley, RB6
8. Matt Kelley — DeAndre Hopkins, WR2
9. Nick Mensio — Odell Beckham, WR3
10. Davis Mattek — Christian McCaffrey, RB7
11. Matt Harmon — Julio Jones, WR4
12. Evan Silva — Melvin Gordon, RB8

Notes: The draft started as drafts tend to this season with six running backs in the first seven picks. As has been the case more recently, the second-tier receivers did come off the board higher than their ADPs, but eight backs in the first 12 picks remains a departure from previous seasons, especially in PPR…The first six backs are almost set in stone, but it was interesting to see the next name off the board. Following a preseason in which he was used as a workhorse, Christian McCaffrey vaulted all the way up to pick 10 as the RB7. It is an aggressive valuation, but he has the upside to pay it off if he stays healthy…At the turn, Silva ended up getting two backs – Melvin Gordon and Leonard Fournette – who combined to averaged 32.8 touches a game last season. Not bad at all.
