If you draft well, you can afford to get nothing from your first pick. If you're a smart and active owner, you can overcome getting a bust out of the first and second round.
This is a game. And it's a game that deserves to be "played". How many of you can say you drafted LT or Portis in the first round? How many of you waited, hoping to get him at a less risky price of a lower round draft pick?
Well you my friends missed out on one season of 1900 yards and 17 touchdowns, and the other 1600 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The number of teams that depend on one RB alone, with no competition on the bench is but a mere handful.
I want the next one.
I understand where you are coming from, but in 99% of drafts Julius Jones will be available in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds whereas Faulk and Edge will not.
