    Bush and Jones-Drew would have been my pick.

    My roommate went to high school with Jones-Drew, actually. They are on a first name basis.

    The draft with the gang is this Wed. Talk about last minute drafts! Its a tough to get 12 friends on the same page. Although, I hear we are going to have ballet parking this year.

    I agree....I think I am going to take Bush if he is still around. Then for some reason I am gravitating towards Ced Benson. Those 350+ carries sound pretty good for a #2 rb.

    How would you guys rank the players possibly available at 12? Thanks for your help btw.

    Looks like someone REEEAAALLLY likes Antonio Gates. That just isn't healthy taking a TE in the 1st round.

    I would take McGahee and Maroney.

    Not a Bush fan. Don't think Benson can go too many weeks without hurting himself.

    And yes this old lady has been playing fantasy football for the past several years and makes the playoffs in almost all her teams.
