If I were you, I'd take the best 2 RBs on the board in the first/second rounds, then the best two WRs available in the third/fourth rounds. Shoot for a mid-level quarterback and a 3rd RB in the fifth/sixth rounds.
I ended up with the 11th pick because of a commish error but I went with the 2 RB theory. I got extremely lucky imo and got Westbrook at #11 and Travis Henry at #14. Manning, Palmer, AND Brady went before #11. I said thank you many times to those owners.
I went with Wayne in the 3rd and probably made a mistake and jumped early and took McNabb in the 4th. I believe there are 6 elite QBs available and decided I wanted one. I still ended up with Romo in the 9th round.
If I would have skipped McNabb I could have ended up with Roy Williams to go with Wayne but oh well.
Here is my team:
QBs - McNabb, Romo
RBs - Westbrook, T. Henry, J. Jones, C. Brown
WRs - Wayne, Coles, V. Jackson, Bruce, B. Marshall
TE - B. Watson
K - Rackers
DEF - San Diego, Minnesota
Not thrilled with my RB depth. Also not sure why I picked 2 defeneses.
Would anyone drop Marshall for Patrick Crayton? I think I'm going to.
Any other thoughts?
