Here's some of the more important non-skill position player picks from the 2007 NFL Draft that will have impacts on fantasy strategies in 2007 and beyond.
Arizona: Offensive tackle Levi Brown might have to earn a starting spot in training camp, but he should do it quickly and will make more of an early difference in the running game than as a pass protector. He should help Edgerrin James post better numbers than James did in 2006 as the Cardinals' running game improves.
Baltimore: Third-round pick Yamon Figurs can contribute to the fantasy defensive/special teams unit right away as an explosive kick returner while easing concerns about the health and off-field issues of B.J. Sams. Fourth-rounder Le'Ron McClain could win the starting fullback job and will help Willis McGahee post the best fantasy numbers of his career over the next few seasons.
