Definitely not a QB. WHy take Culpepper in Round 2 when you can get someone almost as good like Favre in Round 5?

I would go RB/RB depending on what's available, and possibly RB/WR, although I would only go WR if the remaining RB's were just putrid.

If Moss is there I'm going WR/RB, if Moss isn't there I'm going RB/RB.

Last season I was last pick (again) I went RB RB it worked out well I grabbed tiki and c-mart ;-D
Oh yeah I won the league and the money

I'm just not that big on Moss this season. Untill he can prove that Kerry Collins can be the next C-pepp I'm laying off him. But that's just me.

Ive been encouraging the person with the num 12 pick in my league thats about to draft to go the WR/WR route, he's thinking of Moss, TO, and Holt -- he could prob get two of those for sure


That aside, Im picking 11th :-)

bingo.

BTW - for those avoiding Moss because he no longer has Cpepp - look at what Moss was able to do with Gus Frerotte and Todd Bouman. Moss makes QBs.

I'd go RB/RB. WRs can easily be acquired when you need them.

K/Def. No doubt. Doug Brien and Cleveland.

It's actually way too hard to say. It depends on who you are drafting with, who they draft, what type of league, etc. Most likely I would still go RB/RB, but possibly RB/WR.

Exactly. I've made the arguement about Moss and QBs over and over again and it will always hold true. Give a decent QB Moss to throw to, and he'll be able to put up great numbers. I say decent because, well, Moss couldn't make Spergon Wynn any good. But Brad Johnson, Randall Cunningham at the very end of his career, Jeff George, Daunte Culpepper, Todd Bouman, and Gus Frerotte all looked like great QBs when they were able to throw to Moss. Cunningham had the best passing year of his career in 98 when he had Moss to throw to, and that was his 13th season in the NFL, obviously past his prime. Both Todd Bouman and Gus Frerotte put up awesome stats when they were given the chance to start in their stints with the Vikes. If Collins can just do what they did, throw the ball as far as you can, Moss will have a career year (dare I say that, after his 1600 yd 17td season in 2003).

The fact is that Moss may not be the best route-runner, may not be the best run-blocker, and (even though I'd dispute this) may not play every down. But if Collins can just throw the ball he'll get it and do something with it. The guy is possibly the most talented athlete to ever play the game, and there's no way I'm passing on him with the last pick in the first round.

Now that I'm done plugging Moss again, if Moss is there I'm going Moss/Portis back to back at the end of the round. If he's not I'll take Portis and another young back probably, and possibly Manning if somehow he lasts that long. I wouldn't take any QB that early in the second other than Manning because of all the question marks there are with all the rest, and I don't see that huge of a gap between Culpepper and Trent Green for example to warrant taking him that early.
