explain why you think one will outperform the next...i have the 6th pick, and i can't decide who to take first...here are the 9 i'm considering, ranked in the order i'm (very tentatively) feeling them.
Marshall Faulk - StL the o-line is repaired, warner is on, faulk is healthy
Clinton Portis - Den rejuvenated offense behind the snake, the job belongs to this slick speedster
LaDainian Tomlinson - SD wondering about some of these nicks, but an obvious powerhouse
Ricky Williams - Mia doesn't need a good o-line...but wouldn't it help?
Shaun Alexander - Sea *has* the good o-line, and it will help, especially with hasselbeck, k-ron and d-jack taking off some of the pressure
Priest Holmes - KC healed? supposedly so. they don't get much stronger or tougher than the high priest.
Edgerrin James - Ind again: healed? supposedly so. best hands in the backfield, would be great to see him return to glory. still young!
Travis Henry - Buf fighting for his job/showcasing his strengths for future jobs...did well last year, will do better this year?
Deuce McAllister - NO he's loose, but he can't really catch and with a-brooks' style, that's going to bring down his value a bit.
my final thought is that perhaps, it doesn't matter who will be my first selection...they're all terrific backs, right? close my eyes and plunk down my finger on whichever? might be the best way to do it
