With a team containing both Ryan Williams and Andre Roberts, the foundation is set. I have plenty of speed and skill at key positions on my roster. This is definitely a team that won't have trouble scoring some touchdowns for me. On defense, they should be able to cover opposing receivers in man while also having the ability to play in a zone as well.

But my defense hasn't quite hit it's potential yet. Daryl Washington was a good pick with his outstanding speed and defensive awareness, but I think mine is better. With my third pick, I am picking Arizona Cardinals defensive end, Calais Campbell. At 6'8", any opposing passer is going to have a difficult time seeing over him as a pass rusher. With his long arms and good quickness, he will be able to pull plenty of flags and create sacks for my team.

Also, if I drop him into zone coverage on defense, he will undoubtedly bat a few balls down in the same manner that he does in NFL games. Williams, Roberts and now Campbell? This team is shaping up pretty nicely.
