Rudi Johnson (!) and Carson Palmer went before him. The #10 owner ended up with Gore and Westbrook.
As for Alexander and Larry Johnson, they weren't even on my radar. I prefer Addai because he's a 2nd year RB with a complete game, working in a monstrous offense. The kid put up over 1300 total yards and 8 TDs last season as a rookie *playing part-time*. IMO, his upside is only slightly lower than LT and Steven Jackson.
Wow, that was a crazy draft. Team #10 was probably shocked that Frank Gore fell that far. Peyton Manning going second overall is just disturbing.
