That is an awesome pick. Running backs are volatile. Mega, Graham, and Brees are three of the least volatile players you can draft. Brees + Graham should win you some weeks. I am a big fan of not buying into a run if you can steal talent at a different position by skipping the run. Looks like you definitely did that. If you are vigilant about opportunities to get some running backs with upside, then I think you will come out ahead.
Who were the top 4 RBs? If Martin or Richardson were there at 5 I'd probably rather see that pick, but I can understand going with Mega if those two were snapped up.
Actually, I just looked.
I went: Calvin, Graham, Thomas, Fitzgerald, THEN Brees, then my rbs
No one was touching qbs yet, I didn't want to jump that early, the rbs were looking pretty bad already at that point (I actually think where I got Sprolles / Gore was great compared to other rbs selected around them).. So I just went Fitz (thinking he can be great with Palmer / Arians)
So yea, I got Brees in the 5th round just to give an impression of how rb-focused the draft was for everyone else.
The top 5 picks in the draft were:
5. Calvin (me)
