Top 3 are no brainers, but who is No. 4 on the draft board?

Postby Pack Fan in HTown » Sat Jul 29, 2006 3:32 am

Ok folks, let me know your thoughts on who to take with the no. 4 pick. I've managed to draw this pick, and of course it's just out of the top echelon of RB's. All suggestions welcome. I've narrowed it down to 4 different options. 16 Team league 0.25 pt's for receptions. 4 pts for recieving TD's and rushing TD's.

Tiki Barber
Clinton Portis
Rudy Johnson (last year's horse)
Ronnie Brown

Any other thoughts?

I think the resounding answer to this question will be Portis, some people would even go as far to say Portis will end the year #1. I agree with the sentiment that Portis is #4, but I'm not as in love with him as some seem to be.

A month or two ago, it seemed like everyone was saying Tiki should be #4. Opinion seems to have shifted to Portis recently.

I'm really close to ranking Portis even over LJ now with Roaf gone.

Guess I'm a little behind the times then. Sorry folks for making everyone answer the question again. Just getting ready for the draft and wanted the outside opinion. With the Receptions for points I'll probably take Tiki anyway. Thanks for the advice. Any other opinions?

Okay. You're crazy. I have said this plenty, but Roaf's absence won't kill LJs numbers. He still put up monster numbers in the games Roaf missed last year (with Dunn, the blocking TE out as well). Mabye he experiences a slight drop, but I still think he's got a shot at 2000 yards.

I definitely have him ranked above Portis, and I definitely have Portis ranked above Tiki. I think Portis could break into the top three, but it will be SA or LT who are bumped, not LJ.

I can't agree with you, ampant. I don't think that the new coaching staff in KC is gonna have the same type of explosive offense. Add in the los of hald the KC line from last season, and we'll see a definate dropoff in LJ's numbers. He'll still put up good numbers, but more in the 1200yds/15 TD range, not 200/25.

BTW, I would love to see LJ do great, and get rid of the Penn State runner curse, but, I just don't forsee that this year.

Portis and Tiki are 4th and 5th in redrafts, no one else even comes close. And really, just pick your favorite, they're that close. Those two guys are essentially, tier 1B, after them everyone has ?s.
