I would snag the 4th position. With the 4th pick, you can grab you a stud RB.

Here is how it usually goes down and besides LT, you can alternate the other 3 since there are differing opinions as to who should go 2, 3, & 4. Either way, getting SJax, LJ, or Gore will be a good foundation for your team.

1. LT
2. SJax
3. LJ
4. Gore



Also, in the future, I would recommend that questions such as this be posted in the Football Leftovers Forum. I will get it moved for you.

as stated, I'd go 4 to get a stud RB. since you only start one, it'll be good to grab one to carry you. On the way back you should grab a stud QB in 2 and since there are more WR's to choose from that will be equal, grab them in 3 and 4. good luck!

i disagree the gore is a stud. he had 1 year. he is small. the niners still suck, although, improving. there are 3 stud rbs for 2007: timlinson, l johnson, s jackson. the quality of back from4-9 are all the same. i would take the later pick in round 1 to get the higher pick in round 2. thats wehre the talent starts to seperate even more.

i would probably try to go around 10. i would target rudi and portis at that position. i think that is a dangerous combination there. deadly even.

I want them in this order:

2. (LT or S-jax)
1. (See above)
7. (Chances are you will get Addai or Parker, as well as good position in the 2nd)
6. (same as above)
8. (Chance at the above or snag Rudi, good position in the 2nd)
9. (Same as above)
10. (Chance at the above or grab someone like a Henry/Portis/McGahee/Bush, and good position in the 2nd)
11. (Same as above)
12. (Same as above)
3. Get Gore (unless one of the top 2 fall)
4. LJ, this is where he is being taken at the latest, but I'm not a fan
5. This is past the top 2 Tiers of RBs and the drop off is significant, and not outweighed by the better position in the 2nd.

Any Position that you are set up to get a good RB in the first and a good valued RB in the 2nd is a good pick: Such combinations I prefer:
Addai or Parker or Rudi if possibly matched with Henry, Portis, Bush, McGahee, and to a lesser extent Maroney

Any combination of those 2 sets (or LT/S-Jax) would be enough to make me more than Happy with my first two rounds.

Note: A lot of my choices on draft position is based on at least one or two owners taking players I'm not high on in front of my pick, and oft times even high and reaching for them such players include: Westbrook, Alexander, Peyton...although one exception to some of this is Bush, hes a popular 3rd-5th pick as of late, and I don't totally disagree, but it bumps players I prefer down another pick, such as Addai and Parker, for better value.

I agree with aaa on this. I dont see the number 4 back as being THAT much more of a sure thing than the backs later in the first. I would rather take two backs - late in the first and early in the second. There is also good value with then taking two WRs late in the third and early in the fourth. If you take the 4th spot, you will get poor value in the third round as IMO there is an obvious quality drop off at about the start of the third, and then your fourth round pick will also be suspect as there appears to be another drop-off mid 4th.
