Top ten rookie RBs aren\'t as risky as other positions, since RB is the easiest to learn. I\'d prefer a young cheap rookie to grow with the rest of the team.

Most teams picking that high are pretty young, and I wouldn\'t want a vet RB demanding the ball, and frazzling a young QB or OLs.

Its not that big a deal. I really dont care who takes em. Rb is very replaceable postion. Killer Rbs are coming out the wood work, so this is why SA, EJ are expendable.
So why does Arizona want TH? When they could get SA or EJ for a 2nd and use the 1st on a QB or something else they need.
All these teams up front in draft need help at other positons to.
And with RB\'s coming out the wood work why not get one later on in the draft. So you could get SA or EJ for a 2nd and get one to grome later on in draft. Have a proven RB and a young one to grome. And still have there 1st for a say QB (which most teams up front need too), or some other postion of need.

Wow. Okay, I think you TOTALLY missed this:
and won\'t have to pay a 10-15 mil bonus to Edge or Alexander. Anyone who trades for them has to be prepared to pay a signign bonus in that range, and the teams mentioned don\'t have the money to do that.
Why would they pay a 10-15 mil signing bonus plus a vet contract to SA or EJ when they could get a rookie who will do the same for much much less? And Arizona wants Henry cause they don\'t want Shelton, Buffalo does, and it makes sense. Plus Henry is under a very cap friendly contract, unlike SA and EJ, who are under franchise tags. Come on nate, do I really have to explain all this? Seriously, just take a second, look at the draft, the RBs in it, the teams in position to get them, their salary considerations, and it\'s all very clear. Plus the numerous articles I have read about why SA and EJ still don\'t have new teams.

I\'m thiking Philly would be a good match for one of those vet RBs, though. Theyl\'ll have much cash & picks, especially if they deal Simon. Westbroook is small, and they want help at RB to make an immediate impact

whodi....ever heard the term \"board troll\"?

Recently, you were wondering why you got reprimanded and you went away for a few days. Now, go read all of your replies to whomever in this thread. You are totally condescending and a know-it-all every time you respond to anything. Lighten up.

Um, cause these rookies are studs.
Translation....\"like DUH....did you not know that these guys are all can\'t miss hall of famers\"?

History tells us one will almost certainly end up being a bust.

It\'s easy to understand why.
Translation......\"you too would understand if you were as smart as me\"

Get over yourself. It\'s a message board full of saints fans.

yasoon, what exactly are you talking about dude? I speak up on topics I know, and defer to others when I don\'t. That is why I am usually never in the middle of the which LB should we take talks, cause I honestly don\'t know much about them outside of DJ and Thomas Davis should they go that route. If I am speaking on something, I definitely feel I know it, or I would keep quiet. So as far as your ASSUMPTIONS that I am being condescending, you can read things however you want on a message board. You can take it any way you want too. I could call you a smart ass for butting in to a convo that had nothing to do with you, and you seem to be the only one to have a problem with. But that\'s not necessary is it? I am sure you didn\'t mean to be that way, just you felt things were a certain way and decided to be the defender of justice. There is nothing to get over dude. You lighten up. I am as sarcastic as anyone else, and that comes out in how I write, but I am never directly intentionally condescending when there is no need to be. I am answering dudes questions. I am sure he can stand up for himself if he feels I am being condescending, and I would apologize. I don\'t need someone who wants to be a board captain save \'em to tell me about how I write in a conversation he is not involved in. Get over yourself.
