Guys like Roy Helu, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Willis McGahee, Donald Brown & both Carolina backs are going in rounds 7-11 (10 team, according to current MFL ADPs), and all are capable of being solid #2 RBs.
Of the receivers going in the same range, there's a proven #1 WR coming off a down year with several terrible QBs (Reggie Wayne, who looks like a steal in the 9th round), a couple young veteran guys in new situations with something to prove (Meachem, who i like, and Garcon, who's crappy), and a few guys who have shown flashes but haven't consistently lived up to their talent (Crabtree, Rice, Lloyd, Holmes). Toss in a few buzzy sleepers (Torey Smith, Denarius Moore, Eric Decker, Greg Little), and these two groups are very similar. There's a lot of potential, and you're in good shape if one or two of them pans out.
Assuming I picked up a couple solid backs and receivers, along with a good QB, in the early rounds, I'd feel pretty good about coming out of rounds 7-11 with Wayne, Green-Ellis, Meachem and either Brown or one of the Carolina RBs.
Overall, I'd feel better about having to find starting receivers at this point than starting RBs, but there are a bunch of each that I'd like in #3/flex spots.
Good post, hard 10.
Fully agree about both. Just a matter of who you're looking at and when to pull the trigger.. 'Who doesn't belong on the board? Who is capable and in a situation of putting up higher than expected/perceived #'s?' IMHO - Deciphering thats always been the trick and getting lucky always helps.
