This year I will not draft:

1. Any Denver Rb's. Shanny has screwed me over for the last time

2. Edge- I think Edge is finished

3. Jamal Lewis- Last year Jamal wanted to show everyone that he could still play. I think he will come back down to earth this year and look like the Jamal in his later years in Baltimore.

4. Ryan Grant (high)- I would take Grant if he dropped to me in the late third/early 4th but I know he won't drop that far. I don't think Grant will produce like a 1st or 2nd round pick. Rodgers will not scare the defense like Favre did and I think Grant will see plenty of 8 man fronts this year. I am not saying he will be a bust, but he will not live up to owners expectations.

I agree about Fred Taylor. Consistent dud.

Willie Parker. Had him a few times, and figured last season he'd be better since Bus was out of the picture. Nope.

I didn't like some of the things I saw in him last season. I just feel that his time may have come and gone already. Can't back that up wiht any statisical research, more of a sense that he has slowed a bit and is an injury waiting to happen.


*Such forecasts are usually solid indicators of just the opposite. Move Turner up your draft boards accordingly :-b

That I agree with you should push Turner into the 1st round. :-b

I've typically made it a point to not have any Raiders on my team.
It's kind of an environmentist thing where I'm avoiding pollution. :-D

I also will not be drafting the Lions D this season, unless my league adds punt attempts to their scoring.

With the news on Harrison and his age, I think I may very well avoid drafting him this season.

I wouldn't draft him even if he wasn't in jail. :-b :-D

Taylor's Average Season for the Past 5 Years: 1,186 Rushing Yards, 26 Receptions, 220 Receiving Yards, 5 TDs.

1,400 Total Yards and 5 TDs isn't exactly what I'd call a "consistent dud".

I've not looked at him for the past 5 years, nor will I. You're welcome to him.

You can't say averaging 5 TDs a season is 'good' for a RB. Well, I suppose you can, I just wouldn't.
