    A graveyard of “superstars” is what I see. Lots of those names were not long ago thought to be blue chippers, top ten, can’t miss talents…9th ranked player on my board, 12th on the other guys etc…Now they’re in a scrapheap. (not you Dion!)
    Seriously, some good players who had nice careers, and some who still have something to offer, if not a lot.
    That being said, what jumped out at me are the names of guys who were on these mocks just a few years ago as top picks.

  2. Mark says:

    TO should be at the very bottom.

    But then if you flip that list its the top NFL contestant possibilities for Dancing with the Stars 2013.

    • Mark says:

      Shockey will go World Wrestling…that is a given.
      LT will be the next George Foreman with his” Be LT outdoor grill for BLTs”.
      Plaxico becomes the youngest spokes person ever for the NRA.
      Matt Leinart marrys into Ryan Leaf’s family and they become good friends.
      Sage Rosenfels becomes…very wise.
      Owens…celebrity detox?

    I think Carter will come cheaply, again. Maybe bring Sanders back at a discount.
