Where do you guys have him ranked among WR and what do you think about his performance last year/what he'll do this year.

He's one of my mini-sleepers heading into the draft...I have him at 30.

Driver and Burleson are my sleeper WR. I'm hoping to get them late in the draft and have found it succesful in the one draft I've already had. I'm looking for something along the lines of 900 yds and 6-8 TD

i really try to avoid any WR's in green bay. i'm sure someone will emerge as the target again this year, but its always a crapshoot
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

Driver will have to compete with Ferguson, Walker, and Franks for Favre's arm. All of them have the potential to do well, but there isnt enough passes to go around. Not to mention the fact that Green Bay is Ahman's team.

Amen to that gents!
That's my two cents and it's worth every penny of it!

Driver started in tonight's game, correct?

I'm liking him as GB's #2 to have as your #4. :-)

I also concur. Same situation in NE and Philly (pre-TO). All of these quarterbacks spread the ball around so much that no one was really a #1 or #2 or #3 receiver. I don't want to play a guessing game.

There is no reason that Driver cannot challenge Walker as the #1 in GB.

In his breakout year 2002 Driver had 70/1,064 and Walker 2003 had 41/716.

Driver's neck injury opened the door for Walker last year and Walker did not exactly run away to become the unquestioned #1.

Driver is healthy again, 29 is not old for a WR (Moss 27, Harrison 32, Holt 28, Owens 30 etc..) and he finished the season strong. The presence of Walker and Ferguson devalues Driver a little but he is a strong #2 receiver in a 12 team league who can be drafted in a spot where you normally draft a #3 or #4 - this means Driver is undervalued and the draft is all about value.

I grabbed Driver in the 9th round of a 10 round draft and was thrilled to get him.
