Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I have the 4th pick in the draft. Obvious LT and AP will be gone. Of S Jackson, B Westbrook, J Addai, who would you pick?
Rushing Yards (10 yards per point; 1 points at 100 yards; 3 points at 150 yards; 5 points at 175 yards)
Rushing Touchdowns (6)
Reception Yards (10 yards per point; 1 points at 100 yards; 2 points at 120 yards; 3 points at 150 yards)
Reception Touchdowns (6)
I agree with the consensus. Westbrook is the best pick if you can get him. I'll be surprised if pick #3 does not grab him though.
I like Jackson better than Addai for your league. Yea, the holdout and conditioning, etc...but I would still take him. He will get more touches and looks than anyone else on the RB board (except LT and BW).
I would take a RB at #4 NOT Brady. The 300 carry back is sooo rare you NEED to make sure and get one of them. I'm drafting #8 and pissed about it...
Another back to look at is Marion Barber, he is gonna get a full load and could be a terrific FF take this year...
I would rank them 1.) Westbrook, 2) Addai, 3) Jackson. I am leary of Jackson because of his holdout. To me holdout usually ends in injury.
Saying that if Westbrook is gone, I would consider Brady.

Thanks. I'm not huge on picking a QB this early in the 1st round, and I just can't imagine Brady repeating last year's performance. Another good year yeah, but I'd rather take a guy like Palmer or Roethlisberger a couple rounds later.
out of those:
1. Westbrook- he's all they got right now and will catch close to 100 passes, very versatile
2. SJax- New OC will run the ball more, meaning the greatest show on turf is officially dead (eventho it has been for quite some time). Saunders ran, ran, ran the ball in WASH with Portis, now had Sjax...going to be huge IF he keepes healthy (RBs who have held out during camp are at risk for injury for lack of conditioning)
3. Addai- poor man's BW, less receptions, but has the talent do make people miss in the open field. Fell off the map last year during the fantasy playoffs, but off season work outs has him primed for a top 5 finish...
