Northcutt is playing WR in Jax? I thought he was a PR/KR man.

One sophmore RB I think could be a bargain this year is DeAngelo Williams. He's got only DeShawn Foster to contend with in Carolina, and tons of talent. I'll be targeting him for a bargain price in my auction.

I like DeAngelo as well. He showed great promise at the end of last year and proved to be both a good runner along with a solid receiver out of the backfield. When given the chance he was effective, as he tore up the Vikes #1 run D when the Panthers were at the Dome early in the year. Foster hasn't done anything to show that he is feature back material and I expect DeAngelo will assume that role this year.

I'm not sure how much time he will see really...they have 3 pretty young solid receivers, and they drafted a WR in the 3rd round who sounds like a slot guy to me.

I think early middle rounds would be more appropriate. 6th round is probably as late as I'd let him slide.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Deangelo's ADP from one site was 4.07 so you better not wait to long.

Northcutt's got experience which gives him an edge over the 2 rookies (Mike Walker and John Broussard). From what I've been hearing, it will be an open competition between the three for the slot job. That said, the Jaguars don't use the slot too much, though these acquisitions might mean that they plan to change that this season. We haven't really had a good slot guy on the roster up until now, when we suddenly have a surplus.
