need rookie draft advice

Postby bungle613 » Sun May 16, 2004 2:04 pm

Allright. Went 1st in the regular draft so got hit with last int he rook. Picking 12th and 13th. It is a Dyansty league (standard scoring) and my roster is...

Brett Favre
David Carr
LaDainian Tomlinson
Tiki Barber
Correll Buckhalter
Dominic Rhodes
Travis Minor
Michael Pittman
Ladell Betts
Chad Johnson
Chris Chambers
Koren Robinson
Javon Walker
Kevin Johnson
Jason Witten
Tampa Bay Bucs

Sebastien Janikowski

Best left are...

the 4 QB's
the 2 "other" TE's
Clayton
Jenkins
G. Jones
Cobbs
Henderson
Darling

Have no idea what to do. My two thoughts are take 2 of one position. Manning,roth or Jones, Cobbs or Darling,Jenkins. Not certain why I am thinking like that...just am.

Any and all advice is needed and appreciated.

i would probably take manning and rivers. Manning because he will probably be starting right away and could be very big by next year and rivers because of the chargers many high draft picks next year. Farve will be out in the next 2 years and you will need someone to replace him

I'd say Roethlisberger and Troupe, reports out of Giant camp regarding Eli aren't so positive.

Tru dat.

...or whatever.

Roethlisberger will be the starter soon enough, and I like him better than Eli Manning or Phillip Rivers.

...You could also use some help at TE more than you do at WR, which would make Troupe a nice pickup.

I like Troupe. Loved the guy coming out of Florida. ;-D
Dervey henderson is one i like to. Stallworth can't stay up right and Pathon is a slot reciever at best. I think he will be a nice sleeper. But you can't pass up roth, manning, rivers and losman will be in soon.

Troupe for sure, then either Roth or Manning, but I cant decide between those 2.

I would have to agree, you need to get a QB. Its imperative. I would say if you go 2 QBs, Roethlisberger is the lock for your Favre replacement, and follow it up with Manning or Rivers who will help immediately whichever you prefer.

However, I can't justify passing on Greg Jones at this point. As currently a possible goalline back, and a future prospect to take over for "Fragile Freddy" he's got potential to be a full time starter in a year or 2. He's at least as good as Buckhalter going into this year, and bolstering your RB core is something I just wouldn't pass on.
