I got burned BIG TIME selecting a QB first my first two seasons of playing. I had shit for RB's but did end up with a decent couple of WR's. I still wouldn't choose Manning or Brady if I had a shot at them in the first round. I've been pretty successful with my strategy of RB-WR-RB-WR-QB-D-TE, etc. for the last 8 years or so. I get a decent QB and some top-notch RB's and WR's.
Can you believe it - we had a guy in one of my leagues last season who chose a TE (Antonio Gates) and he had the first pick?
