David Boston, Rod Smith, or Ladanien Tomlinson?

Postby BRiley » Mon Aug 12, 2002 1:37 pm

I have the 2nd, 6th, and 7th picks in my draft (I Traded Brett Favre for the 6 and 7). I am taking Shaun Alexander at 2 and Ricky Williams at 3, who do I take next? David Boston, Rod Smith, or Tomlinson? Everyone else has QBs franchised so I could get one later. But we are rewarded for combo points so if I get Rod Smith early I could get Griese later. Plummer would be a bad combo pick and Tomlinson is unproven....who do I take?

How substantial is the combo bonus? Would it be worth passing on Tomlinson?

Combo Points

The combo is worth 2 or 3 points per touchdown and touchdowns are worth 6 points for both running backs and receivers.....there are 2 or 3 point bonuses also for rbs and wrs.....

100 yard games get 2 or 3 point bonuses for both rbs and wrs....I also have the 20 and 22nd pick which I could probably get Jimmy Smith and Joe Horn and then pick Aaron Brooks at 41 which is my next pick......running backs are scarse but I have also heard that fred taylor is not going until the 30s so I could pick Rod Smith or Boston and then get Taylor at 20 for my third back and Jimmy Smith or Joe Horn as my second receiver (WE ONLY HAVE 7 TEAMS...cant you tell!)

Well... Smith is great, but McCaffrey is back and so is Sharpe which leads me to believe his production will go down. Boston will be doubled often and they're playing the Rams and Niners twice each this year. I'd go with Tomlinson and then maybe trade him for a stud QB, or keep him for insurance.
