thats about right that would place him at the end of the fourth round in a 12 team league... that may even be a little too high...

Easy King - he's a great QB who will probably have another monster year of numbers and playing through injuries but this position actually may be high for him. I have seen him going late 4th early 5th in a lot of drafts and love the fact that you can load up on RB's and WR's and then get him early in the 5th. That's a good day!

I agree. TO dropped lower than i expected but other than that i thought this was a solid top 50.

Also Rudi below Westbrook i didnt like.

Everyone' list is going to have flaws..This one didn't have as many as I was expecting. I think I may have had Owens a bit higher. But for the most part was a decent list.

That said, I would still choose my own over his. But we all probably would do that...Well, except for Funston himself.
