Sure, what if Priest keeps playing for two years and plays every game without any injuries? See, I can do it to. I can throw out just as possible an idea, probably more likely in fact.
The fact is that there is no way you can predict an injury. Drafting Larry Johnson is banking on Priest getting hurt or retiring. Personally, I don't care to do that. I'd rather take the chance on Toefield or another backup 10 rounds later and basically have the same chance at ending up with a starting runningback.
