What are your top 5 rookies at each position next years. What are some of you sleepers. For me i think musa smith will continue the long line of great georgia backs in the nfl.

Top 5 at each positions? Long list, but I can provide you with one information so far: it's a weak running back class compared to the last years. There may be a few good RBs but not likely great players or many good ones...

This years class has its strenghts and weaknesses
for example the class of 2003 is quite deep at QB and WR but pretty thin at RB

QBs:
Carson Palmer
Byron Leftwich
Rex Grossman
Kyle Boller

Rbs
Larry Johnson
Onterrio Smith
Lee Suggs
Chris Brown

Wr
Charles Rogers
Andre Johnson
Taylor Jacobs
Anquan Boldin
Fantasy wise though very few Rooks make an impact at WR and QB :~(

Agreed, although Charles Rogers (Detroit) might be worth taking a shot on...

I agree with you Arlo on Rogers

Even if he doesnt put up great #s this year he should he is still worth a a draft pick as a 3rd WR this year

He will also make a great keeper player because I think next year he will be ripping up the league

I agree about Charles Rogers. That guy is gonna be a Stud. Marvin Lewis is saying that The Bengals are talking about being very interested in him, but I see it as leverage to try and get someone to trade with them for their first pick. I also think that Suggs could make an impact early, but of course with running backs, alot depends on the organization that drafts them.

Though I'm not very big on him, there are alot of people saying that Rex Grossman's stock is significantly rising.

I wouldn't get to high on Rogers yet. Being from Michigan, I saw a lot of him. He has a lot of speed and talent, but drops a ton of balls. I see him being another Chris Sanders. Do you remember him? About 3 80yrd td's a year and that's about it. Charlie is comparable to Randy Moss, in regards to his character. Heed my warning, no better than a late round pick.
