    Dude, again. . I've seen him play and he's a beast. Like I said, acc defenses are stacking the box to try to stop him and he just runs through them like they are children. No special skill set? He breaks ridiculous numbers of tackles and he has break away speed.

    Also, no numbers aren't everything to me, but you can't just overlook them either. Numbers don't lie.

    That's true. He won't be a high pick.

    I just don't think he lasts very long because of his style and lack of durability. He offers nothing in special teams, he's a limited receiver/blocker. He definitely runs with power, but has little wiggle and is mostly a straight-line guy.

    That's like the one thing he definitely doesn't have.

    For a bruiser, he has pretty damn good speed.

    And for the guys acting like we shouldn't even think about RB before the 4th round. Why? Unless of course we go after a ben Tate or someone in free agency, we will be stuck with shonn greene. I like greene, but the thought of him being our #1 RB is scary. Yeah, we have a lot of needs, but RB is one of them.
