I too chose the 4/5th pick because of the 2nd/3rd round draft situation. If you take the #1 or #2 pick, you are just itching to get screwed over in the 2nd/3rd round with bad value players. You will feel like you are forced to draft someone because there is no one else left. Instead of having your choice of the #2 RBs and #1 WRs available.
I think it's funny that a lot of people are predicting Holmes to rival his record breaking performance from last year. It's almost
a flash back to a few years ago when people thought Faulk virtually guaranteed a playoff spot all by himself.
No one can keep up that kind of pace in the NFL year after year.
Holmes may not be a bust, but without those TDs he's just another run of the mill 1st rounder. Granted I will not pass him up the 2nd pick of the draft if that is what I end up with, but a lot of people are going to be hurting when the #1 overall pick performs like a #7.
