One comment... leave your team affilliation outside the draft room. Never draft with your heart.
- Hasselbeck is a fine starter most weeks. The loss of Koren Robinson is a good thing, they have a nice stable of "guys" they can count on behind Darrell Jackson. Vick ... trade him to a Falcon homer. Take Vick and Barlow and try to get a top RB.
- McGahee is a great pick and I'm not sure why someone frowned upon him at 9th overall. Willis is a 1st round talent and will have a great season. Bell will be fine if he's the guy, but I don't trust the situation. Barlow sucks and will lose his role as the starter to Frank Gore by week 6. Dunn is a 1,000 yard 6 TD RB that will frustrate you weekly as you try to figure out "is THIS the week he does well"?
You have 1 guy you can count on. If Bell pans out, then you have a nice duo, but this is one time you shouldn't have drafted with your heart.
- I like your 1-2 punch of Owens and Johnson. That's solid and while Owens' antics concern me, he'll play. Smith should be a decent #3 for you early on as it will likely take Muhsin time to get into the role with the Bears and Colbert has some questions now that they have Gardner.
Not a bad group, you have a solid 1-2 punch like I mentioned, but depth is questionable.
- I really think that Clark is going to rock and roll now that Pollard is gone. In that offense, if you can catch you can score and the TE will be huge. Putzier is a decent depth choice here. I'm not as sold on him yet, but the potential is there.
K's and Def... it's all a crapshoot with these two groups.
I think you have room for improvement at RB and a bit at WR, but you also have trade bait with guys like Vick, Putzier and possibly Dunn.
I would get a feel for what other owners are wanting and make some offers.
