The NFL regular season kicks off in two weeks, which means we're in the heart of fantasy football drafting season. Owners who haven't yet picked their team are likely digging around for all of the advice they can get.

To help you out, SI.com's fantasy experts Michael Beller and David Gonos tag-teamed a 12-team, standard-scoring mock draft with one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, one flex, one kicker, one D/ST and five bench spots per team; Beller drafted the odd picks while Gonos selected the even picks. 

Sure, only two guys participated in this draft, but that doesn't mean it was devoid of interesting twists. Take note of when the first quarterback was drafted (Round 2) and how far A.J. Green fell (No. 15 overall).

Read below for round-by-round picks followed by analysis.
