In a 10-teamer?
Would you take any of Brees/Brady/Gronk/Jimmy/MJD or McFadden over him?
I meant a 12 teamer. No, I would not take any of the above over him. I would probably draft him #4/#5 but with a sense of misgiving. I would be much more comfortable drafting him in the 2nd half of round 1, not that I expect him to drop often.
I had to decide over a month ago which draft slot I wanted. The highest available was 7. I took 11 instead (12 was taken). I was concerned a lot of the second-tier backs were similar and each has some question marks. Also, it seems every year, at least a couple guys make first-round blunders, which pushes value down to the end of the round. And, we have a guy who takes Larry every year with his first pick. He's picking 8th this year.
If that happens again this year, I could end up with Forte or MJD or McFadden. Or I could take Jimmy and a QB. I might convince myself to take Trent.
I also have DeMarco as a keeper, so I already have one RB1 heading into the draft.
