If you could keep only say 3 players and had legit top 10 guys in both RBS and WRS, and a top 5 QB how would you go about it? Is this the year of 2nd teir wrs as some have thought? What about RBS? With the exception of 4 or 5 RBS at the top, Do things get dicey fast and is there a decent size of those RBS in the 2nd and thrid teirthat are pretty equal?
Take A TE late year?
Does this make any sense?? Anyone willing to take a stab at this?
I am still OK taking a TE later in the drafts (8-10 rds). I think the talent pool is greater for WRs, there a number of WRs that I like late in the draft. I think the RB situation does get dicey fast. I am just not as comfortable at this point with the late round RBs - some of that will sort itself out with the upcoming pre-season games, but there is still going to be questions heading into the season as to what the actual split will be for some RBBC as wel as when does the back-up take over(either through injury or performance).
QBs I like a lot of the later QBs, so I will take one as usual in the 6-9 rd range - depending on how the draft is heading.
Based on all that - to actually answer the question I would probably go with 2 RBs and 1 WR. Depending on the situation of who I think would be left and draft positions, I may even go 3 RB
