Here's a look at some of the early, high-impact picks from this weekend's NFL draft. We look at the top skill-position picks from the fantasy perspective.

Round 1

Oakland: QB JaMarcus Russell: He should get the chance to compete for a starting job right away against newly-acquired Josh McCown, but with a shaky offensive line and needing time to make more of an adjustment to pro schemes, Russell won't be a viable fantasy starter until at least his second pro season.
