While NFL teams might strike it rich in the first couple of rounds of the draft, it could be the middle rounds of the NFL draft where fantasy owners can find gold, as that is where a glut of running backs and mid-tier wide receivers will be taken.
So whereas teams are loading up on the next great quarterbacks (Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, etc.), wide receivers (Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, etc.) and tight ends (Eric Ebron), there will still be prospects who will hold plenty of value on fantasy draft day who will be drafted in the middle rounds of the NFL draft.
So, in this slideshow will be 10 draft prospects (ranked in order of long-term fantasy impact) who will likely go in the middle rounds of the NFL draft but can be had on the cheap on fantasy draft day. Excluded from this list will be players projected to go in the first two rounds (including running backs Carlos Hyde, Bishop Sankey and Tre Mason).
Of course, a lot of these players' value will depend on where they get drafted—and some have the chance to move up the draft boards, too—but based on ability, the 10 following players have the requisite skills needed to make a legitimate impact in fantasy circles.
Take stock and remember these names when drafting this summer.
