Also I will definately keep 2 RB and 2 WR, if none of those players are available who would you try to get with fifth round pick (QB, RB or WR - I asume that elite TE will be already kept by other teams).
Hmmm... regarding the keepers. Jordan is entering his 5th season in 2005 compared to the rookies being 5 years younger, roughly. So, from a keeper aspect and looking at youth, I'd likely put Jordan 5th on the list behind the rookies.
Looking at the rookies, it's really tough to draw any distinctions among them at this point since none of them have played.
Benson is a guy I might slot as #1 only because I think he proved in college, more than the others, that he can be the 20-25 carry a game back and produce consistently. Brown and Williams split time at Auburn, so neither had to be "the guy". It doesn't mean they can't dominate. And, I think Arrington is the wildcard here, he's got the least pressure from a competition standpoint. Meaning, I think he'll easily beat out Shipp and have more carries in 2005, putting him ahead of the curve. Benson has Thomas Jones pushing him and Williams has Pittman, while Brown may have Williams.
So, if you pushed me to rank them... I might go Benson, Arrington, Brown, Williams and Jordan.
