LT and Alezander are, hence why they're drafted highly. Priest is a lock for 20+ TDs if he stayed healthy, that's incredible value.


The only other guy who might rival Holmes risk/reward is Tatum Bell. While, if they both have their best performances Holmes probably outproduces Bell in both yardage and TDs by a good bit, Bell is a stone cold steal in the 3rd with the potential to put up 1,500yds and 15 scores or so.

True, but in all the mocks I've done he hasn't dropped past the end of the 2nd.

Lol, sorry man, I never even thought that people might construe that headline as meaning he was #2 in KC now but in retrospect I can see it - honest, I'm really not one of those guys who like to make misleading headlines for shock value!

All apologies. Though you are always on my mind, what I was referring to was the food product cornbread itself. In the motor city it represents a soma-like food to the Lion followers, often known as slaves for their inability to ever see the bad in this team. The cornbread mysteriously alters the thought process of what I'm sure are ordinarily intelligent free thinking people. This helps explain why they've sold out games at a time when they have lost 10 or more games over that last 4 seasons.
I will remove the sig squibb at once.

Yeah but the difference between Holmes and Bell is that you would be gambling at # 2 overall to get Holmes... and you can get Bell is mid to late Rd 2 and sometimes even early Rd 3. So Bell is much less risk.

With much less potential reward...

Yeah but you are paying late 2/early 3 rd price.
