Questions:
1. With David Boston going to Miami is he now a top 10 receiver? top 15? top 20?
2. Where do you rank Corey Dillon assuming the trade with Oakland goes through?
3. What have you heard lately about Jamal Lewis' problems with the law? If it isn't going to be fixed until after the season (alla Kobey Bryant) where do you take him?
4. How many running backs should be taken before the first quarterback? Who is it... Manning, Culpepper, someone else?

i'd say Boston falls somewhere in the 10 - 15 spot.... He gonna be back with his old WR coach, in Miami... but... who's gonna throw to him???? plus who knows if he will get back to his old ways...

Corey Dillion is another iffy guy.... he hasn't run in years... he's older.... i'm sure there 10 or 15 backs that would do better then him.... Although... norv does like to run... but he'll still have to compete for time with wheatley and fargas

If Lewis is free from this whole coke thing by start of season... he's still a top back.... if it's not cleared up.... take him as your 2nd back and get a third back that will do well.

I like Fargas. I hope he competes. He had flashes last year and he looked good last pre-season.

I always take a RB with my first 2 picks...they go too fast in draft... and you'll be hating it all season if you don't have a couple decent backs.... so if some how you can land Manning, or Culpepper in the 3rd round... well then your probably golden... but most likely that won't happen...

He was drafted in the 3rd round and was pretty highly reguarded coming out of USC.... i can't seem him not getting a chance before 2 long..

I agree with the running backs. But with the league I was in last year, Manning was the #1 fantasy point scorer. That makes it tough not to take him with a 2nd pick.

Yeah, Manning's great for a QB... he's pretty consistent and will get you alot of points.... but your taking a risk if you don't draft RB in the first couple rounds....

lets say you are the 4th pick in a 10 team league....

you take Manning at 4...

there's 12 picks in between you and your next pick... at least 8 of those will be RB... plus the 3 that where probably drafted before Manning... that means you'll get the #1 QB in the league and the #12 RB and probably at the most #16 RB w/ your next pick

So your team would look like this:
#1 QB
#12 RB
#16 RB

If you took 2 RB first you could Probably land a top 5 QB in the Third round

so your team would look like this...

#4 RB
#12 RB
#5 QB

i think the latter will get you a better team... if you can land manning with that 2nd pick then go for it... other wise I'd stick with RB, RB, QB :)

I would not take a QB first, I may consider it with the 2nd pick. It is still risky, I agree. Do you take Portis if you have the #1 pick?

No... i like safe picks... I'd go with tomlinson..or holmes before portis.... not sure if portis will still succeed with his big money and being out of denver

I like Tomlinson as my first pick. I don't think Holmes can repeat his past performances (I also thought that at the beginning of last seaon and was wrong).

you guys are forgetting how good Deuce Mccallister is...not a bad choice at all.
You'll always be remembered Sean. R.I.P.

Deuce is good... but the Saints aren't known to use him enough when there behind... which often times.. they are..

he's still a top 10 RB though
