  • NFL Players You Would Take #1 in the Draft

    Here's the scenario. Who are the player in the NFL who would be worth taking with the #1 pick in the draft? Their are big factors like age but things like injuries and position value all play a part. Don't really need to include team. It's more about players who are worth that selection

    For me it would be:

    Matt Ryan - very young, proven QB who showed a lot in his rookie year.

    Mario Williams - Has lived up to his #1 pick, still young at 24 years old

    Calvin Johnson - The most gifted athlete in the NFL, has his best years ahead of him at 23.

    Justin Tuck - A guy capable of being one of the best pass rushers in the NFL. A physical freak who has SB experience and is still 25.

    Adrian Peterson - RB's usually have a short life span and AD is a bit injury prone. Still, he's only going into third season at 23 and he is the undisputed best RB in the NFL. He is something that doesn't come around very often. His ability outweighs that question marks.


    Post your own.

    Ben Roethlisberger, James Harrison, Larry Fitz. Basically anyone who is dominating the league right now and isn't a douche.

      philip rivers is still your enough imo


      Saints 2014 draft wish list:
      - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
      - Corner or Wideout in the first
      - No reaching
      - No Kelvin Benjamin

        I still think Peyton and Brady have to get alot of looks, even after 30 these guys have atleast 6 great years left. Since you have Tuck I think you have to include Merriman as well as he's only 24 (hard to believe) if he comes off his injury fine. I'd take guys like Cutler, Rodgers and Rivers over Matt Ryan as well. If this was an actual number 1 pick out of anyone in the league you definitely have to go with a QB, and I'd probably go with Brady as he's 2 years younger than Manning.

          The thing is, how often to players come off ACL tears and play a the same or higher level? Especially players who rely heavily on explosiveness. While Merriman is only 24 that's what prevented me from putting him up there.

            I think Demarcus Ware deserves a mention. He's still young and he was damn near the sack record last year. I think he would definitely be considered if you were runninga 3-4, and even if you weren't I think he could handle himself in a 4-3 as well.

                I'd gladly trade the Lions' #1 pick for any of the following:

                Peyton Manning
                Tom Brady
                Ben Roethlisberger
                Matt Ryan
                Jay Cutler
                Larry Fitzgerald
                Jake Long
                Ryan Clady
                Joe Thomas
                Michael Roos
                Mario Williams
                Albert Haynesworth
                DeMarcus Ware
                Nnamdi Asomougha

                I'd also give a long look to Phillip Rivers and even Eli Manning.

                    With Manning, Roethlisberger and Cutler, you'd have to have Rivers in there, he was one of the top 3 QBs last year and not just statistically.

                      He's definitely an elite QB, but I'm not sure he has the attitude I want in a QB (arguably the most visible figure in the entire organization). Peyton Manning is a douche too, but a lot more mature than Rivers is.

                        QB's - Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger, Jay Cutler.
                        RB's - Adrian Peterson
                        WR's - Calvin Johnson
                        OL - Joe Thomas, Jake Long, Ryan Clady
                        TE - None
                        DL - Mario Williams
                        LB - Patrick Willis
                        DB - Nnamdi Asomougha


                        Given the choice of all the players, I think Mario Williams might be my #1 choice.

                              We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.
