FFL Mock Draft 2008 - Willis McGahee, Marion Barber, Terrell Owens

I'm deep into the second round of my review of NFL.com's 12-team Fantasy 2008 Mock Draft and we're finally seeing some top running backs go off the board.  Do not wait this late to draft these guys in your draft.

#16  Willis McGahee, RB, Bal - McGahee just felt like a bust last season, although he finished with a decent 1200+ rushing yards and seven touchdowns in only 14 games.  If he's healthy, he's worth moving up several spots.  The Ravens' quarterback situation is a concern though and you should keep an eye on who the starter will be when deciding how to value McGahee.

#17 Marion Barber, RB, Dal - With Julius Jones fighting for playing time in Seattle, Barber is now the sole starting running back for the Cowboys.  No sharing, no committee.  Just lots and lots of Barber.  As long as the Cowboys don't draft another running back (Arkansas alum Jerry Jones is supposedly drooling over Darren McFadden), expect Barber to far exceed last year's 975 yard, 10 touchdown totals.  He would be the steal of the draft if you could get him at #17.

#18 Terrell Owens, WR, Dal - Poor TO. He racks up 1355 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns in 15 games, and he's the fourth wide receiver taken?  No respect at all.  I would rank Owens ahead  of Fitzgerald and probably ahead of Wayne in the WR rankings, meaning he should be taken a few spots ahead of where he is here.
