It’s time to take a look at the Third Round from the recent Rotoprofessor Challenge Draft:
- Geckos – Anquan Boldin
- CP – Ryan Grant
- I’m So Paid – Roddy White
- Show me the Money – Marion Barber
- agent ile – Dwayne Bowe
- Lester – Ronnie Brown
- AU Eagles – Jason Witten
- Big Fan – Kevin Smith
- Peterson’s Peeps – Thomas Jones
- Rotoprofessor – Brandon Marshall
- Mose U Over – Pierre Thomas
- + Rock Star + – Marques Colston
Best Pick of the Round – Marques Colston
I was between Colston and Marshall for my pick, so I have to say that I’m a huge fan in getting him at the end of the round. He has plenty of risk associated with him, as we’ve discussed before (click here for my article on him), but he could perform like one of the Top 5 receivers in the game.
Worst Pick of the Round – Jason Witten
I almost selected the Pierre Thomas pick for this spot, just because you don’t really know how many carries he’s going to get thanks to Reggie Bush being in the mix as well. Since he needed a RB (he selected Andre Johnson & Randy Moss with his first two picks), I can understand the selection a bit more.
As for Witten, I know there is a huge gap between the top tier of TEs and the rest, but this is just a little too early and put his roster in a little bit of a hole. The next TE wasn’t selected until the ninth pick of the fourth round, meaning that Witten still would’ve likely been on the board the next time he picked since no one was obviously clamoring for one here. Now, how much better would Kevin Smith or Thomas Jones look as his second RB, as opposed to Jonathan Stewart?
Don’t make the mistake and reach for a TE early, it’s going to hurt you somewhere else and fairly dramatically.
What are your thoughts from the round? Which pick did you like best? Which did you hate?
