I think that Portis and Edgerrin James have no place on that list. Portis is on a team that wants to run the ball first, just got Al Saunders as his OC from Kansas City and has proven to be a very durable back. He is #4 on my lists.

Edge is easily one of the most talented RBs in the NFL and even though his O-Line isn't great in Arizona, he has Fitz and Boldin in the passing game to keep defenses honest. I think that he will get a lot more receptions this year to easily compensate for the drop in rushing production. I think to not draft him in the mid to late first round if he's there is a mistake.

Agree totally with this

I also agree with the rest of the list, besides Edge and Clinton

seperated shoulders can linger all season, and edge has a horrible line and I think he is going to be a huge disappointment this year. Just have a feeling.

Edge, DD and JJ will not be on any of my teams.
KJ and Chester I have no problem with, and could end up being good picks in 4th round.

I agree with the first post on Edge. I'm not drafting him. Taylor you can get in the 4th round. I thought he looked good in the 1st pre-season game. He got about 10 of his 18 yards by himself. The O-line will need to come together but they are lucky they don't play many tough defenses.

I still have faith in Portis. I'm stuck with JJ as a keeper (great auction value), so I'm hoping for the best with him. DD won't be on my team, and I don't like Edge this year- I'll let someone else overpay for him.

I like KJ this year. I think he can bounce back.
