LOL!! I knew it Menyak!!! I knew it!!
takin a page from Terp's book...here were my thoughts during the draft...Please keep in mind that in tribute to Dr. Seuss, I rhymed all my picks....not good rhymes, but rhymes nonetheless...
1 - Tiki Barber: 3rd from last....Man! Top 6 RBs gone...From what I saw, Tiki has dble the potential as a RB and WR. With teams focusing on Shockey, Tiki was let loose last season and I see it continuing...
2 - Jamal Lewis: Here's a great #2 back! Tough ol boy who likes to take it to the D! What a season coming back from such a tough injury. With Blake possibly taking over the lead and Heap emerging as a great threat...I see nothing but good things for Jamal.
3 - Donald Driver: Definitely need to grab a Top WR, and who better than Brett Fav-ra's favorite target!! Driver did terrific coming up as the #1 WR in GB and should do just as well again next season.
4 - L. Coles: He's done me well these last two seasons, and with Penny playing the way he is, Coles is in for another great season!! Great compliment to Driver!!!
5 - Pittsburgh Defense: Yep...the shame of my team....But hard to pass up a top 3 ranked Defense...I was hoping no one else would think of drafting a D this early, but it looks like GP and I were on the same page....Plus I thought he'd take Pitt anyways...ah well...They're still tough and will do great against the run...
6 - Steve McNair: This strategy has paid off the last two years! Waiting to draft a QB around the 5/6 Round is great! I couldn't believe Air McNair was still around....Not to mention some of the other QBs. Hard to pick which one to take, but gimme a guy who plays great injured and healthy any day of the week!!!
7 - T. J. Duckett: RBs are very slim this late in the draft...I wanted someone goal line oriented and possessed the talent to take over the lead RB job as well...Add it up and you have Duckett! (plus i had a great time rhyming his name!!
8 - Rod Smith: Sleeper!!! I thought this was one of my best grabs!! A great WR who will have a new QB, a RB to take all the pressure of him and some good up and coming WRs around him!! As long as Denver gets a guy to throw him the rock, Rod will make things happen!!!
9 - Marc Bulger: I like this backup QB...err...starting QB...errr...whatever he is...I happened to pick him up last year while he was hot and did great for me when my other QB was injured. He should do well, and if all signs point to yes, will lead the Rams to a winning season!!
10 - Jay Fiedler: Okay... call this a major oversight!!! If I did one thing wrong, it was passing over this guy!! Fiedler got a raw deal for being injured most of last season. But now he'll be healthy and with Ricky running like he stole something, a Fantastic Sleeper pick!!!! I still can't believe I got him in the 10th round!!!!
11 - Martin Gramatica: Time to even out the rest of the team. Position scarcity at this time. I see this lil latin leaper coming up big with the FGs and Xtra Pts again!! TB started to find its offense late last season, and Chucky will have them booming by the start of the season!!
12 - Chad Lewis: Here's a great TE! I've looked for him the last two years and he's been great! Well until McNabb went down that is....but McNasty is healthy and Lewis is still a great playmaker!!
13 - Keenan McCardell: He's starting to emerge into his role opposite Keyshawn. I like this guy a lot. He's worth a spot on my bench and will be great to platoon with my other WRs.
14 - Denis Northcutt: Had to have my one Brownie pickup! Northcutt is a big play guy! He may not get the ball all the time, but when he does, he makes things happen!!
Welp that's it...I know a lil QB heavy for my tastes...but with the lack of elite RBs, that extra QB/WR combo would be great trade bait for another RB....and if u want a few of my rhymes just let me know....the only guy i almost regret not drafting is kitna....thats just because I wanted to use this: "I'll take Jon Kitna, cuz he's da shitna!" LOL....ah well....I'm better off with no Bungles anywho.....
