I might take Jackson ahead of Rudi this season because I see Jackson putting up big numbers both on the ground and receiving as well. He has the capability of putting up the same rushing yardage as Rudi but getting far more receiving yards as well....he's ahead in my book for next year.

I'm not sure how I feel about having Jackson ranked in the top-10 RBs, but who else are you gonna put there? There really seems to be a lack of established options at RB and a lot of risk at the end of the first round, hell even the middle of the first round.

There's no real super stud WR worth a first round pick this year IMO(Moss/TO are uncertain prospects)..Seems like every year, the top picks hold a certain premium, and this year is no different. If Edge and SA move around, the only pick I'd really feel comfortable with is the #1 spot with LT. Then I'll get the #1 pick and LT will end up on the cover of the next Madden game.

If I get a pick at the end of the first, I might even take Gates.

If you're still doubting Gates, you're missing the boat something others have been riding to success for a good while now.

I would probably take Gates over any WR at this point, yet I'm sure there will be WRs going off the board late 1st and early 2nd.

Wasn't Linehan the O-coordinator in Minnesota when they were churning out the huge rushing numbers? This bodes well for Jackson.

Yes he was. That and simply getting away from the Mike Martz offensive philosophy a bit should both bode well for SJ.
