Maurice Morris, RB, SEA - Alexander hasn't been healthy and he isn't healthy. Don't see Alexander playing 16 games this year (I hope he can play 10), Morris will either give you some nice fill in numbers or be beautiful trade bait in the middle of the season.

JP Losman, QB, BUF - Alot of people don't realize how good of a year he had last year, and he should only get better, their Run Game is rebuilding and they should have a great deal of opportunities to play from behind which means more passing.

Randy McMicheal, TE, MIA - Just a hunch really,


McMicheal now plays for St. Louis.


Pretty hard to take a guy seriously that doesn't know what teams players play for and still thinks Alexander is injured.

don't talk that kinda smack. bootha is a knowledgeable poster. he's in seattle, and would have more of an inside track on alexander's health than most outside that immediate area. i, for one, don't believe that his foot is completely healed either. and anyone can forget where randy mcmichael is playing. simple oversight or brainfart. happens all the time.

Don't know Bootha personally but he has probably forgotten more about FFball than you will ever know. Seen him offer a lot of solid advice on here.

So he botched where Mcmichael played. It happens. Bottom line is the advice is solid because Mcmichael is on the Rams with the coach that made him successful in the first place. I like his chances this year as a deep sleeper.

I think Alexander is fine but hearing it from a Hawks fan makes me rethink my position.

I would say Reggie Brown, especially for where you are getting him. You will probably get him in rounds 4-6. And for a guy who will probably put up very solid numbers, thats a steal. He's got the potential(McNabb has likened him to a Harrison type with good route running and deceptive speed), McNabb likes him a lot(when TO was in philly, remember what happened when McNabb liked a receiver), this is third year(the year a receiver usually has his first big year, such as Smith and roy), and finally, aside from hank baskett(who is just in the developmental stage) the eagles receivers pretty much suck(and I am including Curtis) i don't think he's going to do a lot.

I try to judge more on content than on simple mistakes. I don't trust McWifebeater though because the Rams haven't exactly used the TE much over the years. Could be with Martz gone and a more than capable TE that will change.

A guy who I like for bench/backup purposes is Marcedes Lewis. I know a lot of people won't draft a backup TE, but in a deeper league or on a team where you're not sure of your starter, I think he could prove to be great late round value. He missed a lot of preseason time last year and never really got into the rythm of the offense which is understandable since rookie TE's rarely produce.

None of Jacksonville's wide receivers have stepped up and shown that they can be counted on from week to week. While they still have plenty of potential, Lewis could emerge as a favorite target of the Jaguars starter (presumably Leftwich). He's got all the tools and won't leave the field much as he can block as well as catch. If he can develop a good rapport within the offense early on he could see a lot of looks in an offense that can move the ball with a very good running game.
