I saw Vick go #1 overall in one draft. The guy's team absolutely sucks. His #1 RB is Stephen Davis, which means his #1 RB is really Michael Vick.
The guy somewhat got goaded into making the pick. 20 minutes before the draft, we asked who he was taking. He said maybe Vick. Nobody flinched, as I chimed in 'he won't get back to you'. He probably wouldn't have, but I sure wasn't taking him. We talked Vick up pretty good, then laughed at him when he made the pick.
There isn't a guarantee any guy you choose will do better than any other option. Ricky and LT seem to be the consensus top 2 picks at most sites, but I see arguments for Portis or Priest going #1 too. Beyond that, I think anything else is a bit of a reach. LT and Ricky are considered the safe picks. A healthy Priest blows them away. A full year like last year from Portis blows them away. Do you want to gamble a bit for a few hundred yards and a couple extra TD's? If the gamble doesn't pay off, you are in a huge hole. It's a matter of repeating his rookie performance for Portis. Priest declared himself healthy, but NFL defenses are really the only true judge of that.
