#2 Overall: Yes, It's Priest

Postby STLCover2 » Thu Sep 01, 2005 12:46 pm

With the second overall pick in my draft I have no choice but to take Priest. The man has scored 30 TDs in, what, his last 20 games? Yes, I'll probably have to use the 5.2 pick on LJ. But how can you say no to that kind of production? Priest can almost singlehandedly win games for you.

IMHO, I've got no choice but to pick him at 2.

Thoughts?

I here ya....but SA has put the ball inthe endzone a few times as well, and he doesnt carry the injury tag that Priest does.

I feel picks 2, 3, and 4 are tough calls.

With that pick I feel less risk is more important since that is the guy supposed to carry you. I'd take SA but feel uncomfortable that Priest and Edge could still out produce my pick. Out of the top 4 backs Priest scares me the most because of obvious reasons.

Tough call. If you like to gamble with high reward Priest is your guy. If you want a sure 14+ td's and a guy who will probably play all 16 games than SA is your guy.

I'd take him with the #1 pick, but #2 sounds reasonable.

Sounds good to me.

I'm not thrilled about having to use my early fifth round pick on a back-up, but it's not that big of a deal. I'll probably have 3 RBs and a WR by then, and one can easily get servicable WR, QB, and TEs in the later rounds.

With that KC runningback (whichever one) carrying my team, I think I'll be just fine.
