I like these players due to situation:
Felix Jones - will get immediate touches and dallas doesn't think he is just a scat back!
Ryan Torain - history says denver backs do play at some point!! I like this guy as a big sleeper, but he may not be by draft time. He is getting allot of pub!
Tim Hightower - Carthon really likes this guy he thinks he can be MBIV. Edge is slowing down and I think he may even get to share at some point.
Jalen Parmele - Williams signed a 1 yr deal and he is 30. Parcels & Ireland found Barber in the 4th. Barber sat on the bench for a yr before playing and I think he will be that 2 punch to brown at some point.
Micheal Thomas - IMO Tomilson is slowing down, plus he is STILL feeling the effects of that ACL. Chargers may look to committe him and I think he will be becoming injury prone.
Tashard Choice - Barber has never carried the load we will have to see if he can continue to run as hard as he does with a full work load. Choice may get to play.
John David booty - Jackson sucks!!
Washington WR ( Kelly & Thomas)- They will play now!!

What do you think about Desean Jackson going to Philly? Think he will make an impact?

I think he will be a kick returner only at this poing! I know the eagles really like Jason Avant. I am not sure if they see him as an upgrade over there 1,2,3 wr but he can compete with greg lewis for the #4

I really thought Avant would break out last year, but they didn't really give him a chance.

do you need immediate production from this pick, or can it be a guy that is going to be just ok his rookie year and good down the road?

Yeah the only wr that could crack the starting lineup is a chad johnson, bolden, or a williams and they are not eagles at this point. so I think they go into the yr with what they have. they are looking to win now... Unless jackson tears up practice and preason, he will be no better than 4th

If he doesn't put on a good amount of weight, he will be killed

He also is terrible at route running
