KFFL editors offer up their top five players to draft after Round 8.

Team Reasoning
Bernard Berrian
WR
Minnesota Vikings While running backs Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor are banging on defenses, Berrian is going to find himself beating corners often. Whether or not Tarvaris Jackson can get him the ball enough is the question.
Nate Burleson
WR
Seattle Seahawks Seattle's receivers are dropping like flies and Burleson showed life last year. He's in for a much bigger role this year and I think he's finally matured enough to fill it.
Sammy Morris
RB
New England Patriots Morris did well in spot duty last year before being injured; he's healthy and going to play a factor as Laurence Maroney doesn't seem to be able to get it done consistently.
Steve Slaton
RB
Houston Texans Ahman Green is a walking time bomb in terms of injuries; Slaton will impress as a third down back and force the team to play him more.
J.T. O'Sullivan
QB
San Francisco 49ers Final-round flier; ideally as a No. 3 quarterback. Mike Martz's quarterbacks turn the ball over but also put up a ton of yardage and 20-plus touchdowns. He's worth the gamble late.
