Jamal Lewis a first-rounder this season?

I was just perusing the Yahoo Roto Arcade fantasy football mock draft, minding my own business, when I stumbled across this flabberghastination (that’s a word now because of this pick): Jamal Lewis with the 10th pick. Despite Lewis’ very nice season last year, I’d never, ever take him that high, and here’s why.

Lewis will be 29 when the season begins. He’s got a history of troublesome foot/ankle problems. The Browns have “one-season wonder” written all over them. Derek Anderson’s got about as much chance of repeating his 2007 season as Tom Brady does.

That’s not to say I don’t think of Jamal Lewis as an extremely solid RB2. I’m just saying I wouldn’t take him over any of the following players who went after him in the Yahoo draft: Marshawn Lynch, Brandon Jacobs, MJD (Fred Taylor’s overdue for something unfortunate to happen to one of his tendons), Reggie Wayne, TO, Willis McGahee, or even his teammate Braylon. I’m thinking end of the second round, he’s a nice pick. Anywhere in the first? Insanity.
