Steven Jackson and Larry Johnson busting out doesn't mean you should always avoid a RB in the first round. Tom Brady having a season-ending injury in Week 1 doesn't mean you should always avoid a QB in the first round. To do that is to do the following:
Someone comes up to you and says, "Heads or tails? If you're right I'll give you $100."
He flips. Heads.
You: "Whew, I'm never
calling tails again, that's for sure!"
It's all probability scenarios; one observation point does not create a thesis.
Edit: Actually, one of my favorite quotes, one of Mark Twain's, applies in this situation;
We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit on a hot stove lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.
