From all the comments I've been hearing here (thanks to Pappy and Steelblood for more specifics) AND the mainstream media, I think the Steel is good to go in 2008, but, with the annoying blip on the radar screen I keep hearing from all quarters about your oline?
For what it's worth, I thought that both Mendenhall and Sweed were high VALUE picks given their respective draft positions. You know, rooks are rooks regardless so we won't really know the intelligence and outcome of any draft for any team until about their 3rd year in the league if certain draftees last that long.
I want to give all fantasy guys a nugget, if they haven't already figured it out. D-Bowe (WR) could be a high value pick in your draft because under new OC Chan Gailey, the Chiefs look to have an excellent offensive strategy for the first time since the days of Vermiel. I say that, (hold your breath as I am my own), QB Brodie Croyle is buying in and looking great with his rocket arm and finding Bowe.
But, it's too early to tell for sure. I will quote a Bear's announcer commenting in the first pre-season game for the Chiefs against Chicago when Croyle threw a 35 yard rope to a narrow window to find his man on a 3rd and long: "That's why the Chiefs drafted this guy. He has a Favre-like arm that, if developed properly, could cause opposing DCs many sleepless nights."
D-Bowe is Brodie's favorite target and worthy of that distinction. Just a heads-up for you guys if you find his name on the board at the appropriate place in your strategy of drafting.
