Coffee or tea? Boxers or briefs? PPR or Standard? These are the age-old debates that define us. Over the coming weeks, our writers will add a few more to this list. That’s right — it’s rap-battle season. First up, Neil Dutton and John Lapinski square off in a battle all too familiar to those who have the second pick in rookie drafts. Be sure to check out Neil’s opposing viewpoint. Saquon Barkley is the most locked-in 1.01 rookie pick in recent memory, but who do you take at 1.02? Derrius Guice is the leader for that spot in early rookie drafts, but the results of the NFL draft have rightly opened the door for other players to challenge for the pick. While Neil Dutton thinks that Guice is still the guy you should target here, I can’t pass up the upside and the opportunity that Rashaad Penny brings to the table.
Why Not Guice?
