all over Holt and most of them will come at a cheaper price.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "come at a cheaper price". Perhaps in your analysis you think Holt should be drafted later? But I don't think he will be in most cases. He will probably be the 2nd or 3rd receiver drafted this year, strictly based on past performance, which sometimes is not a good tool but often the most often used.
On the other hand, I think Holt's number this year will be more reflective of his upcoming 2004 numbers rather than his 2002 and previous numbers. I think he understands the game better. I also remember seeing an ESPN interview where he described how he approached the game differently, studied film more, and worked harder, simply because he recognized that he was the No. 1 guy and needed to do that.
I think his maturity as a receiver, studying film, and more disciplined application of his skills will allow him to get closer to his 2003 #'s than previous years. With the offense he's in, I'd rank him top 3.
