It’s a question that everyone seems to ask in the Fantasy Football world these days. It used to be, "Who are this year’s sleepers (surprises) and busts?" Now because the fourth to last pick in the 2006 draft had such a huge year, everyone wants to know who will be this year’s Marques Colston.
Well, you have come to the right place because last year, before anyone knew who Mr. Colston was, yours truly gave him to you. I also gave you Jerrico Cotchery and Leon Washington for the record — but who’s counting?
This year, if you are looking for a seventh round pick who will come out of nowhere and be a star … I do not see one, but if there is a guy from the seventh round … it’s TAMPA BAY RB KENNETH DARBY … he could surprise!
But the official COLSTON AWARD for 2007 is going to … (DRUM ROLL … GET A PENCIL …)
WR JACOBY JONES for your HOUSTON TEXANS … 6-4, 210 pounds … taken in the third round from LANE COLLEGE …
* Good hands but raw…
* Only has to beat out Kevin Walter to line up opposite from Andre Johnson … Who is Kevin Walter? … as Ray Bachman would say, "Exactly."
* The Texans LOVE him!!
* There you go … now laugh when you draft him and your friends say, "Who is Jacoby Jones?" They will all know soon enough and now, you do as well.
