TOP Rookie prospects for 2004

Postby Plindsey88 » Tue Mar 16, 2004 6:18 pm

OK, fellas, as you can see from some of my threads today, I am gearing up for the rookie draft in The Khronic Keeper League... I know it's hard to judge how things will pan out until after the real draft, but I thought I'd post my top 16 picks and see what y'all thought... Please give whatever input you have to give, and feel free to critique my list:

1) Larry Fitzgerald
2) Mike Williams
3) Eli Manning
4) Roy Williams
5) Steven Jackson
6) Kevin Jones
7) Ben Roethlisberger
8) Michael Clayton
9) Kellen Winslow, Jr.
10) Drew Henson
11) Reggie Williams
12) Greg Jones
13) Rashaun Woods
14) Maurice Clarett
15) Michael Turner
16) Lee Evans

The rankings look about right as far as value. One thing I would change is move some of those top RB's over Roy Williams though.

I'd also consider putting Ben Troupe up there. He could pan out as a great TE just as well as Winslow.

I had him on there, at first, actually... I agree that he could be a stud... Very Sharpe-esque....

1) Larry Fitzgerald
2) Mike Williams
3) Roy Williams
4) Ben Roethlisberger
5) Steven Jackson
6) Kevin Jones
7) Eli Manning
8) Kellen Winslow Jr.
9) Greg Jones
10) Reggie Williams
11) Rashaun Woods

Mine will be a little different:

1. Eli Manning - I can't bet against a Manning in the NFL.
2. Mike Williams - I think he's a little better than Fitz.
3. Larry Fitzgerald
4. Kevin Jones
5. Steven Jackson
6. Kellen Winslow, Jr.
7. Ben Roethlisberger
8. Roy Williams
9. Chris Perry
10. Ben Troupe
11. Phillip Rivers
12. Michael Turner
13. Michael Clayton
14. Reggie Williams
15. Greg Jones*

*G. Jones' value is even more dependent on who drafts him since some teams will want to put him at FB. I've got him ranked as though he would split time 50/50 between FB and TB.

**Drew Henson is no longer draftable - he's a Cowboy. Just mentioning that since he was in your list.

***and finally, I admit my knowledge of some of the mid-level WRs is weak and I'll most likely have to trust the rankings I find from others.

I noticed Chris Perry was only on that last list. Id put him somewhere from 8-10, because he is said to make a great fit in a few teams offensive strategies, such as NE, who got rid of smith.

I included him because a lot of fantasy leagues are allowing him to be drafted in the rookie drafts because even though he is not available in the actual NFL draft, he is in fact a rookie next year...
