sWe are building a 30 man + coach team which includes special times. It will be a 32 round draft. I must emphasize that the PM system be used because I'd like this draft to run quickly. We will develop some type of playoff system with votes in order to determine who has the best team. This thread is only to be used to makes selections. We will discuss the draft in a separate thread.
+ two extra roster spots for depth.

You build championship teams with quarterbacks and Peyton Manning is that quarterback. Thanks to Manning and the team built around him, the Colts have been to the playoffs nine times in the past ten seasons. Manning is 33, but he still has a number of playoff years and a Super Bowl or two left in him. Having him is like having a head coach out on the field.
Peyton Manning took a different approach to earning a record-tying third Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player award.
The Indianapolis Colts quarterback got hurt, struggled when he came back, then lost a bunch of games. Hardly vintage Manning.
But when he rediscovered the touch that has made him one of football's dominant players for a decade, Manning and the Colts were virtually unstoppable.
Now Manning can tell Brett Favre to move over and make room for him atop the roster of MVPs.
"I really feel like it's a team award," Manning said Friday. "Just what our team went through this year and the way we responded and bounced back to a little bit of football adversity at the beginning of the season, being 3-4.
"It's been the most rewarding regular season that I've been a part of in my 11 years, and I have to believe a lot of the other players and even coaches might feel the same way."
Manning received 32 votes in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the NFL. He also was the league MVP in 2003, when he shared it with Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair, and in 2004.
Favre, then with Green Bay, took MVP honors in 1995 and '96 before sharing it with Detroit running back Barry Sanders in 1997. The award has been given by The AP since 1961.
Manning has been part of a most unusual season for the Colts, who normally have the AFC South just about clinched by Thanksgiving. Manning had two operations on his left knee in the preseason, cutting into practice time, blunting his usual precision as a passer and, eventually, leading to that 3-4 start.
From there, with Manning getting sharper by the week, the Colts won nine straight games to secure a wild-card berth and a meeting Saturday night with San Diego.
While Peyton Manning's 2004 season was one of the all-time best, his performance this year compares favorably statistically to 2003, when he shared the MVP award with Steve McNair.
In that streak, Manning is 209-of-290 for 2,248 yards and 17 touchdowns, with only three interceptions. He extended his NFL record with his ninth 4,000-yard season and finished with 27 touchdown passes, 12 interceptions and a 95.0 passer rating.
"In other years, everything started fast," Colts running back Dominic Rhodes said. "He's still breaking records. But this year, there were a bunch of negative things said in the beginning, and he brought his best when we needed his best. This is probably the best ball I've seen him play."
The folks in Indianapolis might take for granted having Manning behind center, just as Packers and now Jets fans have assumed Favre would be there every week. Favre has started 269 straight regular-season games, the record for quarterbacks. Manning's string is 176 -- every game since he was the No. 1 pick in the 1998 draft.
The Mannings, of course, are the first family of NFL quarterbacking, from father Archie to Peyton to younger brother Eli of the New York Giants.
"To be able to come back and play the way he has, especially the last nine or 10 weeks where they have been winning and getting into the playoffs, I'm very proud of him and the season he has had," said Eli Manning, the MVP of February's Super Bowl.

Most receiving touchdowns as a rookie: 17
Third in receiving yards by a rookie, with 1,313 (trailing Anquan Boldin and Bill Groman)
Moss has caught 13 or more TDs in a season five times; only Terrell Owens and Jerry Rice have done so more often.
Moss has caught 17 or more TDs in a season three times; no other player has ever done so.
Moss has averaged at least one receiving TD per game played in four different seasons: 1998 (17 TDs in 16 games), 2003 (17 in 16), 2004 (13 in 13), and 2007 (23 in 16); no other player has ever done so.
He had back-to-back 100 catch seasons, in 2002 and 2003. He, along with Wes Welker, Sterling Sharpe, Jerry Rice, Herman Moore, Cris Carter, Marvin Harrison, and Rod Smith are the only receivers to accomplish this feat.
At the end of the 2007 season, Moss averaged 12.4 receiving TDs per season, an NFL record.
He had 1,200+ yards receiving in each of his first 6 seasons, setting an NFL record.
In 2003, Moss became the second player in NFL history to average 100 yards and one TD per game in a 16 NFL game season, scoring 17 touchdowns and 1,632 yards.
In 2007, Moss became the only player in NFL history to record four 100+ yard games in his first four games with a new team.
Moss has eclipsed the 1,000 yard receiving mark 8 times in his career. He is tied for 3rd all-time in that statistic.
Also in 2007, Moss set a record with 16 touchdowns in his first 10 games with a new team.
On December 29, 2007, he set the NFL record for most touchdown receptions in a regular season, with 23. The record was previously held by Jerry Rice who scored 22 touchdowns in a 12 game strike season.

4× All-Pro selection (1998, 2000, 2003, 2007)

On October 1st, 2006, Williams recorded his first sack and a half against the Miami Dolphins' Daunte Culpepper in the Texans first win of the season 17-15. Three weeks later, Williams sacked Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich and recovered a fumble in the Texans 27-7 upset. In the 2006 season, Williams accumulated 47 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.
Early in the 2007 season, Williams played well, with an outstanding performance in the first game of his sophomore season. The defensive end had five tackles, two sacks, and returned a fumble by Chief's fullback Kris Wilson for a touchdown. He had particularly big games against the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans, sacking Jay Cutler 3.5 times and Vince Young 2.5 times in one game each. He also had his first sack against Peyton Manning in 2007. Before the game Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy compared Williams to Colts Pro Bowl Defensive End Dwight Freeney. He finished the season with 59 total tackles and 14 sacks.
The 2007 season was a year that Williams answered many of the critics that he gained because of his lofty Number 1 draft pick status. In 2007 year, through 15 games, he accounted for 48 percent of his teams sacks, a higher percentage than any other player. Williams was a second-team All-Pro selection by the Associated Press, however, he was not elected to the Pro Bowl but was voted an alternate to the game. 
In 2008, Williams continued to prosper, amassing 12 sacks and 53 tackles in 15 games (all starts). This effort included three sacks and one forced fumble in the Texans' first ever Monday Night Football game on December 1, 2008. For his efforts, Williams was selected for his first Pro Bowl as a starter.
