I'd take the highest talent you can get minus a QB. Then with your next pick, you might still be able to get jones, if not, grab tiki/westbrook.

I would definitely NOT go RB/WR/WR. Positional scarcity!!!

Well depending on the WRs left, I think you could go that route. Id probably go with Bennett and Hines Ward. I think you are sitting pretty if you have those 3 (Priest/LT, Bennett and Ward) especially in a 14 teamer.

I think the second round is a little early for these RB's. This past weekend I got Chris Brown in the 9th round of a 10 team draft. THis is a money league that has been established for 5 years with only 2 new players. Even though this is a 14 team draft, I think you can get better value in the sencond round.

I think you have to go with one WR and one RB and likely in THAT order. the guy right behind you isnt going to take 2 of those RB's so take the best WR and he may make your decision for you as to which RB. I think(late 2nd round early 3rdround ) is too early for ANY of them myself. However by the time you get to pick again they are almost sure to be long gone so again i have to go with WR and then RB. Under your scenario you should still be able to get a hell of a good WR at that spot. Not moss,Harrison,Owens level, but one notch below them(moulds,Ward,C.Johnson) level.

good luck

1. Lee Suggs - Far and away will blow the other two guys away. He needs to stay healthy (which has to be a concern when a guy comes into the league already broken) but he was an NFL starter the day he was drafted. This guy will give the Dawg Pound something to get excited about again. Lord knows it's been a long wait.

2. Chris Brown - Any young RB can achieve in the Titans offense; McNair will keep defenses honest with his passing & scrambling. That said, I don't think the coaches are going to put the burden of winning on his shoulders. He'll share time with A. Smith, who is a legit NFL starter who needs to work on his field of vision, and both backs will be secondary to the passing game.

3. Thomas Jones -- a crappy player on a crappy team. How long does it take coaches and fans to realize that some guy's a bust? It will be a miracle if he can win and hold the starting job, and if he does so it's more of a knock on A-Train than it is a sign that Jones is good. Corey Dillon started for a team just as bad (if not worse) than Jones did, and Dillon produced. I don't know if Jones's problem is nagging injuries, a lack of heart, or a poor attitude, but I don't see him changing his ways anytime soon. Jones is right behing Ricky Williams on my draft chart, LOL.

I live in cinci, and I never considered us to be as bad as arizona... Seems like even though we used to be a bad team our offense was never the problem, both running and passing. Arizona on the other hand sucked on offense AND defense, and I don't think that was all TJ's fault. There was the year D. Boston exploded though. I don't know...

I honestly think TJ will do better this year. Chicago's offense isn't that great, but Booker is a good WR so at least there is someone there to compliment TJ.

Plus TJ was never really given the starting role IIRC. Dillon was always the man.

Thank you!

What does that say about TJ? He was never able to beat out anyone for a true starter's role.

For all the talk about TJ being on a bad team and never having a good opportunity, look at it from a different angle. The Cardinals were bad because they had players like TJ. He never gave them a glimmer of hope the way Dillon did, or Tomlinson does or any number of backs on bad teams over the years.

Are you sure these are going to be your only choices?

I would much rather have a Bennett, Barber, Staley, Martin, etc. than anyone you mentioned here. In a yardage heavy league you gotta go with the proven veteran guys. No need to take a risk on someone that is a possible "feature back" homerun. You'll end up neck deep in Thomas Jones stew IMO.

If you can't get a reliable RB at this spot, I would much rather grab two talented WRs and draft a lot of risky RBs later.

I'd definitely take Bennett if he's there at 27, and there is a good chance of that in this (bush) league. But Barber I won't touch, Staley I have ranked below these dudes, and Martin I got burned on last year. He's no number 2.

It all depends on who's there. If Bennett's there, I'm taking him. If not, but say, C. Johnson and Hines Ward are there for my top two receivers, I'm taking them and gambling on TJ Duckett, Quentin Griffin or the like for my number 2. But it would take having two top-tier receivers for me to forgo a reasonable rb in the third.
