EEks. That's a tough one. I think if two stud RBs are out there you have to take them. That said, don't plan on it. Take the best RB out there you can and if a top tier WR is out there do it or QB do it. You need to make the most out of those two picks.
Tough to say really if we dont know who is available.
If you cant get say a Steven Davis and Fred Taylor combo then I would take them. If you have to make do with Davis and say Michael Bennett then I would have a look and see if Randy Moss. Marvin Harrison etc is available and then hope for a deep RB pick up along the likes of Kevin Barlow or Dominick Davis.
I would shy away from QB until round 4. The only QB's worth taking in round 3 or lower (Manning, Culpepper, possibly Vick) will be gone by then anyway.
agreed. i think with your first pick you should take the top back available then asses the talent on the second pick. if there is no other decent #1 back out there then i would hope there is a top wr available and go with him. you would be better off with s.davis and holt rather than s.davis and m.bennett if you ask me. but take the best rb available with your 3rd pick definitely if you don't take your #2 back with the second pick.

From reading this it sounds like you're implying that Barlow/D. Davis might be around at the end of the 3rd round, IE 47th overall.......uh, yeah right.....
I had these same picks last year and was able to pick up James in the first round and Jamal Lewis on the way back through. I did win my league, too. My point is I would go with two backs because another guy like Lewis may surprise people(think a Dom. Davis or Barlow...guys assured of playing time) and it is way harder once the season starts to pick up a decent back than it is to find a serviceable WR. Thus much greater trading power for you if you decide to focus on using one back later on.
At 18, you then take the highest rated one of those guys (in your mind) that is still around. I have them listed the way I would rank them.
Good QB's can be found in later rounds, as well as servicable WR's... IF Moss/Holt/Harrison was still on the board at your #18 pick, I would take one of them, but they won't be. AND if Moss is around at your #15 pick, I would take him, but he'll only drop to around #9 or #10...
