In a competitive money league, one guy took T.O. ahead of S. Smith, G. Jennings, Boldin, and Wayne. These were his reasons...I just had to shake my head.
Smith - Claimed he is on the decline and that his numbers have decreased the last 3 seasons. Well, he led the league and set a career high in yards per game (only WR at 100+) last year.
Jennings - Said he was unproven and he didn't consider him a stud.
Boldin - He referenced a Super Bowl curse...no, I'm serious. That was his reasoning.
Wayne - Said that Manning is "supposedly" going to suck this year...per some ESPN fantasy analyst...so by extension Wayne will suffer.
The rest of us laughed...you should have seen the clutter on the draft message board with that pick.
Another guy grabbed Derrick Ward in the 3rd round...I just felt bad for him though. He gets panicky sometimes and buckled under the pressure. Strange. He knew he screwed up right after he picked him too.
