Where do you draft McGahee?

Postby Stelly » Wed Aug 13, 2008 10:29 am

Now that Willis just had his knee scoped, where do you draft him in a 10-team league? Does he still go before the WR run (around 15th overall), or does he drop, and if so, how far?

He fell to me at 19th and I had to take him. I can see him going around 15 overall.

In a 10 teamer, I can see him dropping to mid 3rd round, maybe even later, depending on how quickly he is back at practice in the next week or two.

Mid to late 2nd round. Just lock up Ray Rice.

in a redraft i dont think i'd take him with my 1st or 2nd rounder (maybe a late 2nd...2.09/2.10) but i'd rather not take the risk

I wouldn't take him until the 4th round. Mcgahee freefalled down my draft board when he got the surgery.

We're talking about a guy that had major reconstructive surgery in the past. He goes in for a new surgery on the same knee on the eve of the season opener. There is virtually 0 chance that he is 100% to start the season. Who knows how the knee with recover and/or hold up throughout the season. And then there is a Ray Rice. A guy that is perfectly capable of bringing the same things to the table that Mcgahee is.

I'm not gonna go out on the limb so far as calling it a RBBC in Baltimore, but it could easily turn into that. I'm not saying that Ray Rice could be starting in week 1 and during the season, but it could turn into that.

I am drafting RAY RICE and not Willis Mcgahee this year.

If you are thinking about drafting him at 15 overall still even with the injury/surgery I personally think you are insane to take that kind risk. It's not like Mcgahee is a stud anyways, the guy is just a formerly solid RB2. Take a look at what you are gambling on.

4th round....thats a lil unrealistic/crazy. McGahee is still a 2nd rounder (10 team league) prob about picks 14-18 id say. The fact that Cam Cameron is calling plays in Baltimore now is worth something too. There is def some risk in taking Mcgahee in the 2nd but i think he is gonna be a work horse this year.
*** i just realized how out of date my sig is, someone leave me a msg if they can make me a new one.

Another vote for early 3rd before I'd think about it, and even then I'd probably pass. Too much risk involved. I'd rather grab MJD, Thomas Jones, etc.

I wouldn't touch him in the first two rounds. If he was still there in the third or beyond, and I still needed a #2/#3 RB, then maybe. BUT...I'd be looking to handcuff him to Rice before the middle rounds of the draft. And, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see someone else reach for Rice to prevent me from doing just that.
