I had the last pick last year in a 10 man league, the wrap around and it worked out awesome, picked up CJ at 10, and P Manning at 11.

Yeah that works out well in a 8-12 man league, but if you have more i think you will wind up with a mediocre RB or a great WR/QB but not both unfortunately in a snake draft.

I bolded the part where he said "long name," so I assume he meant Aromashodu who is pretty high on peoples boards for not having a ton of NFL experience. He really came on strong the last four games of last season. Knox is going to get some looks, and people like his game too, so he is also being talked about as having some mid round value. Oddly, and not true to usual form, the Bears have 3 WRs that you could really take a flyer on as early as like the 5th round.

When Mike Martz is running the offense, you can count on mediocre receivers getting about 80 catches in a season. See Sean McDonald or Mike Furrey for recent proof.

I think the phenomenon surrounding Devin Aromashodu is that he came on like gangbusters at the end of last year. Knox, on the other hand, was pretty steady for all 16 games. Also, Aromashodu caught a TD pass in the preseason, picking up right where he left off at the end of last year. Another thing: this guy is not a rookie or second year player. He's actually a five year guy and has bounced around the league a bit, under the radar, so he's more experienced than one might think.

When he played for the Colts, a popular nick name for him was Aromashodon't.

Question for you all -

I am in a keeper league, and I kept Brett Favre hoping he would return. I am now working to trade Brett Favre. I have the first pick in the draft, for QB, I can choose between Kevin Kolb or Chad Henne. So, Kolb or Henne?

I think both have good upside, but i would lean toward Kolb, better system.

I say keep favre. I think he is ranked somewhere around 20th in QB rankings. Id rank him higher. Brett Favre likes to run the show and that means he likes to throw a lot. He also has adrienne peterson who will take some pressure off his passing game. If you have the first pick in the draft id grab a stud RB.

But if you really want to go ahead and grab a QB first draft pick you gotta take kolb.
