Chris "Beanie" Wells in NY Jets Forum Posted February 28, 2009 · Edited February 28, 2009 by AdropOFvenom Pointless debate Turner 5th Portis 2nd Slaton 3rd Forte 2nd Grant none Jacobs 4th I'll agree it's a pointless debate, mainly because history has shown that good players of all positions can be found anywheres in the NFL Draft. RB is not in any way special here. Why take a QB early when you can have Tom Brady (6th), Matt Cassel (7th), Matt Hasselbeck (6th), Kurt Warner (UDFA), Tony Romo (UDFA), ect. Why take a WR early when you can have Wes Welker (UDFA), Brandon Marshall (4th), Steve Smith (3rd), Terrell Owens (3rd), Hines Ward (3rd), Derrick Mason (4th), Donal Driver (7th), Steve Breaston (5th), Bernard Berrian (3rd), ect. You can do this for each and every position down the line. You do it because the prospects available in the 1st round for the most part are better then those that are available later on. Occasionally someone slips through the cracks, but that's the exception, not the trend.
