Every season, i go into drafts with a list of players that i must have, and if i need to reach in order to acquire them, i will. This season, for me, according to their ADPs, i have a list of players, i am willing to reach to obtain. Its a small list, but here it is, along with the reasoning:
Marvin Harrison: i just dont think hes lost that much! yes, age caught up to him last season, but i believe hes going early 2nd rd to start next season like he always has. the guys a workout/health fanatic and i believe hell still be every day Marvin, and considering hes going in like the 4th-5th rd, hes a steal in my eyes.
Thomas Jones: im pissed the Jets got Favre! well kinda... i had TJ on my radar early in all my mocks and i was able to get him in the 4th-5th rd range, but now ive seen him go in the 3rd! the Jets oline is gonna be pretty good this season, and i foresaw TJ having a big season as a solid RB2, if not RB1 numbers by seasons end. while hes still on my list, i am finding it harder n harder to reach for him bc of Favre now crashing my sleeper party
DeAngelo Williams: i feel like im the only one who really sees this kid taking the bull by the horns here. yes, the drafting of jonathan stewart made it clear that the Panthers dont exactly have all that much faith in DWill, but i do! im not reaching 2 rds or anything for him, but if i feel like theres a 50/50 shot of him being gone before he comes back, ill take him every time.
Selvin Young: everybody is literally terrified of the Shanahan curse of broncos RBs it seems like, and while his track record is well documented, im willing to, for one last time, defy the odds and draft a Bronco RB with confidence. i liked Selvins talents last season more than Henry, but Travis was inked to a big time contract so Selvin was burried behind him. now with noone infront of him, and virtually noone behind him (injury to Torain helps), i think he puts up monster numbers!
A few honorable mention guys for me: Vernon Davis, Jericho Cotchery, Steve Smith, LenDale White
