2012 Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Newton & QBs Who Warrant 1st-Round Selection

The first round of most fantasy football drafts isn't going to be normal. Running backs are normally the consistent trend for Round 1 selections, but this year's crop isn't deep.

Outside of Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy and Ray Rice, there are no "safe" options in the backfield. Ball-carriers will still come off the board, but that will only be due to someone's risky decision making.

That leaves quarterbacks and receivers to plug the holes. A handful of signal-callers are legitimate first-round producers, and a few receivers pull their weight as well.

Four quarterbacks will come off the board before the No. 13 pick comes up this year. The NFL is a pass-happy league, and their are several elite arms who will put up huge numbers this season.

Let's take a look at how the first 12 picks will shake out in fantasy football this year.
