These are the results of the mock draft that the Review participated in on 6/20/09. We picked from Draft Spot 4 as one of the top tier RBs of 2008 should still be available with our pick in a standard Yahoo! League draft. The draft moves in a serpentine fashion picking fourth in odd rounds and ninth in the evens. The draft pick breakdown is as follows:

1. Matt Forte (Chi - RB)
2. Brandon Jacobs (NYG - RB)
3. Tony Romo (Dal - QB)
4. Tony Gonzalez (Atl - TE)
5. Vincent Jackson (SD - WR)
6. Bernard Berrian (Min - WR)
7. LenDale White (Ten - RB)
8. Philadelphia (Phi - DEF)
9. Donald Driver (GB - WR)
10. Lance Moore (NO - WR)
11. David Garrard (Jac - QB)
12. Mark Bradley (KC - WR)
13. Tim Hightower (Ari - RB)
14. Darrius Heyward-Bey (Oak - WR)
15. Jason Elam (Atl - K)

We believe in the course of the draft got good value on the majority of the picks, with exception of Gonzalez and Berrian. In those two cases, we felt we needed to reach one half to one full round in order to score those players we would not normally get at Round 4, Pick 4 or Round 6, Pick 4. In the later rounds, we were able select prospects with the picks in the 13th and 14th rounds.
