Does anybody have any idea why two teams that have running backs that rushed for 1,400+ yards last year drafted the two best running backs available? I see why they did, but don't know why they did...lol

Henry fumbles and could bring a good price

Holmes isn't getting younger and is not 100% healthy.

I knew those, but those are the only reasons they can find for drafting them? C'mon... that's almost a waste of a pick...

Let's face it, Willis McGahee wasn't just the best RB on the board at the time, he was the best ATHLETE on the board at the time. I think the Bills grabbed him BECAUSE they are comfortable with Henry and, now, Olandis Gary. This gives McGahee a year to heal and learn Buffalo's system. Not only that, but what do the Bills need the most? A WR. Was there a WR on the board with immediate impact talent? Heck no. I think it was a great pick.

As far as KC goes, they aren't sold on the health of Priest Holmes coming off of his injury. Admin Johnson is also a completely different kind of runner - more of a downhill back. If you take health into consideration, LJ was the best RB on the board. He can be a starter THIS year if Priest isn't up to snuff. He will also afford Vermeil the option to sit Priest for a few downs to keep him healthy. The Chiefs had already addressed their concerns at DE - signing Vonnie Holliday away from the Packers and at WR/KR by signing Arena Leaguer Chris Horn [say what you want about AFL, but this guy can catch in traffic]. Again - another pick I like.

I don't know for sure, but was Brad Banks drafted or not, 'cause I don't think he was...
