Since something like the 15 highest scorers (Yahoo settings) last year were QB's, why is every mock draft so RB heavy? Shouldn' the first pick in any draft be Brady, and the 2nd pick be Romo? These guys blew the RB's away last year.

It's mainly a position scarcity thing. Most leagues only start 1 QB, so even in a 12 team league, that's only 12 QBs that need to go. There are plenty of decent QBs out there, so if you only need 1, there's no need to rush for it.

RBs, on the other hand, are a whole different animal. Most leagues start 2, so in a 12 team league that's 24 running backs that need to go. Combine that with the fact that a lot of NFL teams are doing committees at RB these days, and some teams' RBs are just plain not good, you want to make sure that you get the clear-cut, every-down RBs right away, and not get stuck with guys who are going to have their TDs vultured, or are going to come out every other drive.
