The numberFire football staff got together and did a fantasy football mock draft full of twists and turns. Which players fell past their average draft cost?

Vince Lombardi once said, "Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect."

No defenses. No kickers. Because who wants to read about positions that'll be dropped after Week 1 anyway?

I'm all about that life, but your leaguemates probably won't be -- at least to the degree that this mock draft shows. Keep that in mind when you see Cam Newton go in -- gasp -- the sixth round.
