    Green was also a primary weapon for the Jets. Teams focused on him because there was nothing else that scared them. He will have an easier time with the Titans.

    4 years is why. That is the age difference. Turner is 31. Not many RBs do too much in their 30s.

    GUYs WHAT ABOUT JAMIE HARPER!?!? He's a really great power back and a young stud!!!

    That's the risk you take when you go after 3rd/4th round talent. Greene is proven.

    As you can see from my avatar, I am a huge Zac Stacy fan.

    He's not a burner(ran 4.5 at the combine). He's not an overly big either, 5'9" and 200 lbs. but he is durable, he can pick up tough yards, he's a leader, hard worker, his vision is amazing and something that can't be taught. Plus he's a local kid as a product of Vanderbilt.

    He will be there in rounds 4-6. I'd like to see us snatch him up.

    I can't help but think Zac Stacy is another Javon Ringer. You have seen him more than I have. Is he?

    He's not Ringer, this guy is a tank with feet.

    I'd be happy with Stacy if Bell is gone

    Ringer had much more production in college than Stacy. But let's face it, Stacy started as a freshmen and played on VU teams that went 2-10 2-10 6-7 and 9-4.

    He is the all time Vanderbilt leading rusher but I don't really see him as another Ringer. Stacy has missed maybe 1 game due to injury in 4 years. Playing behind an undersized Vanderbilt offensive line. Ringer could never seem to hit the hole. Stacy's vision is what makes him a great RB. That coupled with his patience to let the hole develop unlike CJ, who as soon as he doesn't see a hole, tries to bounce it outside.

    I think Stacy is better than Ringer, I'm sure ill get called a homer but Stacy may be the best RB in VU history. I just think whoever gets him in the later rounds will be getting a steal.

    I think he would really flourish under Mike Shanahan in Washington.
