I agree with the first statement, but the coaching change in Pitt. scares me. You could count on Cowher to pound the ball away even when teams were selling out to stop the run, which makes just about any RB a must start, and a guy with FWP's skills a bonafide #1 RB. The uncertainty surrounding all the changes to that team is my only concern about Parker, but not enough to take Alexander, who had a magnificent run, but is never going to be what he was, before him. For me, the 4-6 picks should in some order be Gore, FWP, and Westbrook, after that, probably Portis, and then its a mess to decide between unprovens like Addai, Ronnie Brown, etc, or guys with limited ceilings like Rudi and McGahee.
