I've been seeing these guys go in the 5th-8th rounds, and I think they are great value picks--especially Matt Ryan.
Who do you take? Personally, I like taking Matt Ryan in the 7th round as my last starter. RB is very thin this year, and there are so many quality WRs that you can get in rounds 2-6, it makes sense to draft all of your RB/WRs in rounds 1-5 and either then snag Eli/Peyton or a decent TE like Vernon Davis or Jermichael Finley in rd 6. Matt Ryan usually falls to the 6-9th round, which is grossly undervalued for a 4000+ yd passer throwing to two of the best WRs in the game.
What do you guys think? Are Peyton and Eli must-picks in round 5?
I like drafting Ryan in the 7th more than i like Peyton or Eli in the 5th even though i kind of like Peyton in the 5th, but there is an obvious risk involved. I see Eli and Ryan as the same type of quarterback so why go for Eli when you can get Ryan two rounds later?
If you're seeing Ryan in the 7th, grab him. He's not going to last in the 7th in many real drafts. If you want Ryan you're going to have to grab him in the 6th or earlier...just saw him go in the 5th in a real draft.
It depends on how your league scores: mine is Td 4 INT -1, then you want the gunslinger, the guy who will get more of each (I think this will be Eli) If your league is Td 6 INT -2 or -3 then you are going to want to go Ryan or maybe even Peyton.
