Chris Lewis has been the co-host of the Fantasy Forum for 19 years. He likes to say he started when he was 12, but we know better.
Originally born in NY (Long Island), Chris has been in the Phoenix metro area for 22 years and is an Arizona State Sun Devil alum. While he still roots for his hometown teams, the local squads have gained his loyalty over the years, and he has been a D-Backs season ticket holder since day 1 (and has remained so despite having to see Bauer every game).
Hello fans...as you know, the last few years, we have done a "journalist MOCK DRAFT" on the Fantasy Forum. Well, thanks to the success of our Phoenix Coyotes, we've been pre-empted the past few weeks for playoff hockey. But I still wanted to do the Mock Draft, featuring beat writers/columnists/bloggers from folks around the country.
So...for the next day or so...follow us (me) on Twitter at @chrislewisxtra for the picks and comments from the writers around the country. Once we're done, we'll post the results right here, most likely late Tuesday (assuming everyone out there answers me quickly enough).
I'm posting the first pick right now...Monday at 2:07pm...but I'll give you this one here on the blog...I know you'll be shocked:
WITH THE FIRST PICK IN THE XTRA910/FANTASY FORUM JOURNALIST MOCK DRAFT...the Indianapolis Colts (Phillip B. Wilson/Indianapolis Star) select: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford. "It's never been much of a secret. Colts were sold on him from Day One," says Wilson.
So...hop on Twitter, follow @chrislewisxtra, and we'll take you through the first round.
And tune in to the Fantasy Forum, Thursday nights from 6-8pm, assuming that Coyotes season ends before the NFL season starts!
