Actually, the number 8 pick is a good one this year, because that's where a tier ends.
As far as RB's go, by most people's rankings:
So as you can see, pick 8 puts you at the end of that tier. It's really a toss up amongst those 4 RB's. So, you could pick at #5-#7, or pick at #8 and maybe get the same guy you were looking at anyway, in addition to getting an early second round pick then you would've had otherwise.
Yes, depending on what other people like/pick you can get 2 stud RB's (say Lewis and maybe Edge if he falls that far) or get a really good WR like Moss (maybe, but probably not) or Harrison in the 2nd round if you really want to have an edge on receivers...

Id stick with the eigth pick. Its a very good pick this year. Pick nine is where it gets real interesting.
At eight youll be able to take the last of what many consider to be the top 8 this year. Then coming back at 13 you can go for a stud wr or rb. At 13 two of the following will be there; Moss, Edge, Harrison, Holt, FTaylor.
One of the top 8 RB(that have been prevoiusly mentioned) + say Edge or Moss/Holt/Harrison and you are set up for a strong team. I'd be inclined to go Top 8 back that falls to you, then elite WR then solid 2nd RB, this of course is subject to change depending on who is on the board. For example if Vick, or by some chance Cpepp or Manning or maybe even McNabb fell to you in the 3rd round i may take them. Your team could possibly end up being say Ricky Williams, Marvin Harrison, Michael Vick at the end of the 3rd round. Great foundation.
