I'm struggling with the idea of cutting Rod Smith to make room for one of the rookies. We have our rookie draft in June, and there are several good rookie WRs this year. I pick 6th, and Ronnie Brown, Cadillac, and Cedric Benson will be gone. I'll have to go receiver.
I think Lelie and Rod ... should Lelie prove that 2004 was no fluke, will have simlar numbers again in 2005. So, seeing as how youth favors Lelie in a keeper scenario, I'd drop Rod.
Don't forget about rookie RB JJ Arrington in Arizona. He's low on many radars, but is starting to rise due to the news that he's making in the desert.
I don't know that I'd take any rookie WR over JJ Arrington at this point.
Braylon Edwards? No, I would not. Mike Williams in Detroit? Likely not, he's not the #1 option. Mark Clayton - Ravens / Roddy White - Falcons / Troy Williamson - Vikings?
I just don't think I'd take any of those rookie WRs over Arrington. Rookie WRs with the Ravens and Falcons don't put confidence in me. Williamson will be the #2 and at times #3 option with the Vikings, but he likely has the potential to have the best season.
