Stocking up for a SB run

The 3rd or 4th year is the common breakout year for a lot of positions, so evaluating after two years is tough. However, some guys have jumped out already.

Mario Williams- 18.5 sacks

D'Brickashaw Ferguson- 2 year starter at LT

Antonio Cromartie- 1 AP, 1 PB, 10 INTs

Santonio Holmes- 1796 yards, 10 TDs

Colts pick: Joseph Addai- 1 PB, 2742 yards, 23 TDs

DeMeco Ryans- 1 PB, 225 tackles, 2 INTs, 5.5 sacks

Marcus McNeill- 2 PB, 2 year starter at LT

Greg Jennings- 1552 yards, 15 TDs

Devin Hester-2 AP, 2 PB, 11 RET TD, 3002 return yards, 2 recieving TDs

Maurice Jones-Drew- 2552 yards, 24 TDs, 2 RET TDs, 4264 return yards.

Colts Pick: Tim Jennings- 37 tackles

Jason Spitz- 2 year starter at G

Jerious Norwood-1625 yards, 3 TDs, 6.2 YPC

Colts Pick: Freddie Keiaho- 1 year starter, 80 tackles, 1 INT, 0.5 sacks

Owen Daniels- 2 year starter, 1120 yards, 8 TDs

Leon Washington- 1486 yards, 7 TDs, 4.5 YPC, 3 RET TDs, 3136 return yards

Brandon Marshall- 1703 yards, 9 TDs

Elvis Dumervil- 21 sacks, 29 games played

Mark Anderson- 17 sacks

Colts Pick: Michael Toudouze -2nd best LT on the 2007 Colts, 5 games played

Colts Pick: Charlie Johnson -30 games played, maybe he'll be a good guard

Sam Koch- 2 year starter at P, one of three 2 year starters drafted after the 5th round.

Colts Pick: Antoine Bethea -1 PB, 113 tackles, 5 INTs, 2 year starter

Colts Pick: T.J. Rushing- 1 RET TD, 1044 return yards

Marques Colston- 2240 yards, 19 TDs, 2 year starter

My Picks:

1. Addai, the best back in the draft to date.

2. Just missed on the second best back in the draft, so Norwood and Washington are tempting. Washington's return ability is a big plus, receiving is a wash with Washington better as a rookie and Norwood better last year. Both have been above average runners, but Norwood has been better. Instead of picking one of them I'll take the undersized DE averaging nearly a sack a game (.72 sack/game) Elvis Dumervil.

3. Freddie Keiaho, another great LB in Polian's long line of them

5. Antonie Bethea, won a starting job as a rookie and made the pro bowl the next year

6. T.J. Rushing, the Colts need a returner since I passed on Washington

7. Marques Colston, The best WR in the draft was barely drafted.
