1. Brady - Born leader playing the most important position 2. Manning - Just a little bit behind Brady 3. Tomlinson - One of the few RB's you could build a team around 4. Romo - Great upside 5. Rothlisberger - Also Great upside with a SB win 6. Garrard - Broken Record here... Great upside 7. Parker - Consistent RB 8. Ronnie Brown - Healthy, he's one of the best 9. Larry Johnson - See above 10. Devin Hester - Changes the way the game is played on special teams. He has skills you can't replace. WR's are a dime a dozen, the Pats won 3 SB's with average WR's. Peterson's too small to be considered on this list yet, let him prove himself over the next 2 years and I'll add him. No Defensive players are so far above the next player at that position that I'd consider wasting a 1st rounder on... In your example is Jason Taylor really any better than Richard Seymour, Aaron Schoebel, Dwight Freeney, Mario Williams, etc.... The answer is, maybe, but only marginally.
