Look at this ESPN article by John Clayon

James looks ready to explode in 2003

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Observations on the 2003 Indianapolis Colts from training camp practices:

1. Here's Edgerrin James's improvement from a year ago: During last year's camp, James had the first three elusive steps at the line of scrimmage to gain yards, but he didn't have the explosion in his reconstructed left knee to break many long runs. Now, the explosion has returned. On one play, James, wearing his college No. 5 for fun, made a powerful fake to his left and shot to the open field on his right, making defensive tackle Larry Tripplett miss badly on the play. James seems to be gliding more than a year ago and extending his stride in the open field, which should get him back at least to the 1,300-yard level if he stays healthy.


Does anyone truely believe Edgerrin is fully healed and if he is "gliding" as this guy says does this make him a viable pick at the 5th-12th(in a 12 team league) spot or are guys like Alexander, Faulk, Dillon, etc. better picks.

I feel that the Edge will have a great season. They say it takes 2 years to recover from knees, so he should be ready. I would hope that others may not believe and maybe pick him up in the 2nd, depending where you pick of course.

I'd take him after Faulk, but before Dillon. Alexander, hmmm, I'd rate the same?

Edge is one of my keepers, so I hope this all comes true, but if he so obviously lacked the explosion to break off long runs last pre-season, how come all anyone could find to say was that he looked like the same old Edge?

I draft 5th in my league. I am hoping he is around for my 2nd pick. Hopefully alot of people will overlook him. As a # 2 back he would be STRONG.

i'm in a 12 team league and i can almost guarantee that james will go in our first round. i personally wouldnt feel comfortable taking him unless i had picks #10-#12. ditto faulk and holmes.

wait yoda are you saying you wouldnt draft preist holmes or marshall faulk unless you had the tenth pick? neither will be available then unless your in a league that stresses passing. or are you saying that faulk and holmes will be taken in the first round?
