Rule #1 Never rule out a player categorically; I will draft anyone if they fall in the draft far enough. Having said that, I drafted Brett Favre in a draft Saturday and regretted it the second I said it. Brett’s own words keep haunting me, “Maybe it (ankle) never gets to where I want it to be. 40 years old...three surgeries...that's all you need to know." So if I had to pick one player with a “Do Not Draft” note potentially by his name it would be old man Favre. I honestly think he will play in 2010, but not at the level of his career year last year. Maybe the current scare will send him down the rankings enough for him to be value again. I would draft him, just not at QB9.
