    If CB and WR are addressed in round 2 and McFadden, Mendenhall, and Stewart are all off the board by pick #61, which one of the following would you select assuming all were available(and you had to go RB):

    Chris Johnson, East Carolina
    Felix Jones, Arkansas
    Jamaal Charles, Texas
    Kevin Smith, Central Florida
    Ray Rice, Rutgers
    Steve Slaton, West Virginia
    Matt Forte, Tulane
    Other (who?)

    I'd take Charles because I think he's got the speed, wiggle, power and durability...the fumbling can be corrected.

    I could be happy with any of Rice, Jones, Charles, or Johnson.

    I could be happy with Slaton, Forte or Smith if it was round 3.

    I agree with Hostile--I'd try Slaton in round 6 is available.

    Rice, Choice, and Forte are the only ones I like at our 2nd round pick. But Rice won't be available.

    That's pretty much spot on. Prefer Rice above the others though.

    I'm still trying to figure out why everyone is so enamored with Charles for? One decent year. I guess we have a lot of UT fans here. Slaton is way better than this dude.

    Forgot about Choice...he will go in Rd 4 or 5 ;)
    Rice will be there in Rd 2.
    Forte is a wildcard depending on the team drafting. The kid can play, but I'm thinking Rd3.

    Slaton is so soft and stays hurt.. His stock dropped off in a big way. Even WVU fans were down on him...

    When you start off a post like that, no you're not wondering, you're instigating.

    Bigger - Check
    Faster - Check
    Smarter - Just kidding

    I've watched a ton of WVU football, and I like Slaton, but he doesn't project nearly as well to the NFL as Charles. Slaton is a late third, early fourth rounder at best IMO.

    So we get him in the 3rd or 4th round. And, WVU fans are down on everybody right now, except OU!

    I can see Slaton in the slot catching quick slants, and spreading him out. Remember people we have a fully capable starter in MBIII. We need receivers, db's, and more pass rushers!

    I'd be fine with R. Rice, K. Smith, C. Johnson or F. Jones in round 2.

    We might would have to move up into the first half of round 2 in order to get the one we really want, and I'd be fine with that.
