How early should L. Johnson be taken in the draft next year?

Considering that Priest Holmes returns and regains his starting spot, where should we draft LJ at?

How can we consider that Priest Holmes will return and regain his starting spot?

We don't know that he will return. We don't know how the carries will be split IF he returns...

Too many questions to answer right now...

yes, there are a thousand different scenarios as to what can happen in KC this offseason. if the one you are considering works out, then larry johnson is 3rd or 4th rounder.

There is no way that Priest comes back and takes his starting spot back from LJ. Larry Johnson is a first rounder for sure.

hes a top 3 pick either way. with priest or not. I dont think priest can finish a whole year. I rode on LJ's back this 2nd half of the season. Id put SA 1st next year, w/ LT2 at 2nd. LJ 3rd

I don't see how the Chiefs could give Priest the starting job back. Larry is a much better runner than Priest. Larry still needs to work on his blitz pick ups, and isn't as good a receiver as Priest is yet, but he is the better runner, and it isn't close IMO. Larry was coming out of the game on obvious passing situations already, so I see Priest coming back as a 3rd down back, and getting an occasional series to rest LJ. I would take LJ as high as #3 overall, depending on various circumstances, (the O-line, Vermeil, and Priest's status).

As BH said - its way too early to answer this question.

So what if Priest does retire? What if Vermeil, Roaf, and Sheilds retire with him?

If something like that happens, I would have a very hard time drafting him at all since I seriously doubt I would take him in my top 5, yet the chances he falls to the 6-10 range would be pretty remote.

agreed. the issue here is less about larry johnson's skill -- i think we all agree he is a very talented back, capable of domination in this league -- and more about the chiefs offseason.

It's not even worth debating right now. Everyone already knows all the what if's that none of us here can answer. Yeah, LJ SHOULD get the start and SHOULD be solid, but you just don't know. So why waste time?
