It is too early to predict who will do what. Strength of Schedule plays a huge role in what players do the following year. We won't have that info until next summer.

T.Holt hade a great year for a couple reasons. One was Faulk's injuries, but the other was the Rams had one of the easiest schedules vs 2002 Pass DEFs. Jamal Lewis and Culpepper are also great examples. The Ravens had a rediculously easy schedule vs 2002 Run DEFs and Vikings super easy vs 2002 Pass DEFs.

Keep an eye out for good and marginal players that go from tough to very easy schedules. They tend to have great seasons.

I learned that last year and got both Jam-Lewis and Culpep in the 2nd and 5th RDs respectively. There will always be a bargain QB in the mid RDs and a Borderline #1 RB up to the mid/late 2nd RD.

Barlow 7th overall? Over Randy Moss? Let's put the pipe down.

Off the top of my head I'd say something like.

01. Ahman Green
02. Clinton Portis

I agree. Barlow will be a top 10 pick next year.

What's so hard to fathom about putting Barlow ahead of Moss?? I'm sure you were saying the same thing when Deuce McAllister was behind Ricky Williams (there was no way he'd be a Top Pick!). But lookie here, he is now!!

Barlow has all the goods. $$ for years to come.

You're both nuts then. William Green is a perfect example of why you don't overrate guys based on a few performances.

I'm not saying he will go that route, I think he will be great next year, but you don't waste a top 10 pick on him, especially with proven studs left on the board. He's a guy you grab in the 3rd round.

If i had the 7th pick in the draft and i could pick either Barlow or Fred Taylor or Edge, im definitely going to take Taylor or Edge. Barlow has had 3 good games. The other guys have proven that they can play in this league.
Thanks to Go Jays Go for the sweet sig
