I have the 1st pick in my draft and my pick will obviously be LT. My question comes with the 20th and 21th picks. Should I...
a. Take the best back available(Edge, T.Jones, Benson, Lynch,Jacobs)and the one of the top receivers(Harrison,Holt,TO,Ocho),
b. Take two of the top receivers and take my chances with whatever RB's are left in RD 4(Lewis,Green,either Taylor,Duece)
or c. Try to trade the pick for a better draft position?

From your post, I can tell you're in a 10 team league, but what are your starting requirements? If you have to start 3 WR's (as many 10 team leagues do) then I'd say you definitely snag at least 1 WR, and maybe 2. Because of the RBBC's being fashionable in the NFL, you ought to be able to get pretty good RB's in the 4-5 turn, thusly freeing you up to snag 2 elite WR's at the 2-3 turn.

However, if you start 3 RB's (something that sometimes happens in 10 team leagues too) you definitely want to grab another RB in the 2-3 turn.

I don't think I'd take a QB that early. Peyton should be gone by then, and after him while Palmer, Bulger, and Brady are all solid options, there's a chance one of them is still there later.

All this is speculation though as you know how the others in your league like to draft and maybe they take QB's early, or snatch up all RB's the first few rounds. How they draft, combined with your leagues starting requirements and scoring system, will dictate a lot of which direction you go in.

Jeff, as far as running backs, Thomas Jones is solid, but the Jets coaching philosophy is going to have him splitting time. I think Beson has a lot to prove, but to me he seems to lack guts when he's hurt. I think Jacobs is going to score a lot of TD's for the Giants, but he is going to be splitting time with Reuben Droughns who may see more time due to his ability to run behind a poor offensive line where as Jacobs may struggle unless he's only trying to get a yard or two, plus Droughns can catch better out of the backfield then Jacobs. Finally If you're looking at Marshawn Lynch and you still have these other players on the board, you should pass on him, rookies do good for the first 8 weeks, then they hit a wall and there numbers go down.

Honestly, I doubt if Edgerrin James is going to be there at #20, but he's be my first choice followed second by Thomas Jones.

At #21 you may want to go with WR over QB, that being said, you're looking at a pretty good crop of receivers left with possibly Javon Walker, Reggie Wayne, Donald Driver, Marques Colston & Larry FItzgerald to choose from.

Thanks for the help guys. In my 10 team league we start 2rb's, 2wr's and a flex rb or wr. Still not sure as to what I will do, I guess just wait and see what is presented to me.

i would make every attemp to go with 3 rb and 2 wr more than not that will produce the most points. If you can end up with LT, T.JONES and BENSON/EDGE you can patch work a wr corps together fully of #2 and #3 wr and you will score big points. i would rather have 3 stud rb and 2 average wr and a 2nd tier qb

If you get a flex spot and can start 3 RB's, I might grab 2 more RB's at the 2/3 turn. But only if they're good enough RB's. Wouldn't pass up Marvin Harrison or Larry Fitzgerald to snag Brandon Jackson or Marshawn Lynch (whom many think more of than I do).
