What do you want your team to look like?

This is a question that you should really ask yourself before your draft, and you should enter the draft with an answer in mind. Because the reality is, most of the people in your leagues aren't going to go into the draft with much of a plan and will just hope for the best. If you come in prepared with an idea about what the talent looks like at different parts of the draft, it will give you a leg up on the competition right from the opening tip.

There are many ways to build a championship-caliber squad, and ultimately you'll need to come up with the strategy that works best for you. In my experience, I like the old "practice makes perfect" adage, so I like to do mock drafts before my real drafts to get a feel for what players should be available.

Will my sleeper picks be there, or does everyone know about them so they go earlier than expected?

Similarly, are there really good players that are just ranked lower than expected in the draft software and thus likely to go later than they should?

Having answers to these kinds of questions beforehand is valuable when it comes time for your real draft(s).

To that end, here's a quick look at how drafts have been shaping up so far. Utilizing the Average Draft Pick (ADP) data, I've gone through and looked at the types of players that are going at different spots in the draft. Here are some of the players that catch my eye at different spots in different rounds, given their ADP slots.
