I could throw a dart blindfolded at LT, Portis, Williams, Faulk, and Holmes and feel fantastic about any of the choices. I would choose Faulk. And for your information, Christ, in order to insure competitive balance in my league, we don’t allow any one team to have James Stewart.

Hmm, not a good 1st post, BillyRay (or whatever).

That statement about RB's shows you can't even BUY a clue you're so lost......

With the #1 overall, I'd take Ricky, then LT. LT has a very tough schedule, especially to start with.

After those 2, I think there are options, and I think McNabb is a decent one at #3. I'm not saying I'd do it, but I don't agree with absolutely not taking a QB in the first round. There's 2 consensus top 2 picks (Ricky, LT). There's another 2-5 who could be #1 overall but are the likely next tier to go (Faulk, Holmes, Portis, Alexander, McAllister). Henry is probably the next best choice, followed by Edge, Ahman, Freddy. The next 6-8 guys should be solid starters, but shouldn't be your #1.

McNabb, Vick, Owens, Harrison, Moss going with picks 3-7 would be a mild surprise. More likely they start going around pick 8-9. If the top 15 guys I mentioned all go (Moss eliminated) with the first 15 picks, I would not go with a QB until at least pick 8 or 9. You could still get a serviceable #1 RB, and a solid #2 RB in the 3rd round.

I would not take a QB or WR other than McNabb, Vick, Owens, Harrison, or Moss in the first 3 rounds. You will likely have to take them in the first or 2nd. If you take one of those 5, I'd take 2 RB's assuming they are good quality.

If I had the first pick I'd have to go with LT, with Ricky very close behind. LT based on pure talent and durability and Ricky based on the supporting cast. Close behind is Portis, Faulk and Deuce...I'm not convinced Holmes is 100% ...yet.

I would probably go with Ricky Williams with LT a close second.
There is more depth at QB than RB this year so I don't plan on taking a QB until round 4 or 5 possibly.

In a traditional league, I would go with any of the top 5 RBs. If I had to pick today... I'd go with LT.
