I ahve the first pick and not high on Foster (because of Tate) or Rodgers (Qb depth and drafting a qb early may not be the thing to do). I want to trade out of this spot but would hate to pass on either of the above. The 2nd pick offered to give me his #2 pick and I would have the 1st 2 picks of the draft (a few in the league dont like it and may vote to veto if we trade) but I would have to give up 2nd, 3rd, & 5th Rnd picks and gain in the 7th & 10th Rnd to balance the picks out (So I would basically get picks 1, 2, 40, 60 and so on which I am not fond on because of the distance between picks). Standard scoring with 5 points per TD pass. Really thinking of going either Rice or McCoy and grabbing best RB and Andre Johnson when it comes back to me so I wouldnt have Foster and Johnson in case Houston has a bad week if I were to take Foster as 1st pick. What do you guys think on the trade or #1 pick. Also just for your info, which I may be wrong on but it seems like everytime a player is ranked #1 (Foster this year) he sucks it up. THanks for the help!!!!!!!!

So you don't want Foster because of Tate? I don't follow the logic here. Foster will shoulder the load all year unless he gets injured and barring any injury will probably end up in the top 3 for RB scoring when the season is over. I don't think you can go wrong drafting a QB, if you don't want Foster, or even Rice of McCoy. What I don't do is trade for the #2 and wait until 40 to pick. That is not a good strategy.

I would stick with with your picks, no trades. I would personally take Foster with the number 1 pick, he missed games last year but dominated when he played. You can also pick up Tate later on in the draft to hancuff Foster.
