Here is a pretty good article if you are following this years draft.

It also helps if you are unsure about the current RB class ;-D

Thanks for the article man. But I still like Ronnie Brown over Cadillac in the NFL. All Cadillac will amount to be in my mind is a third-down back...at least for a year or two. He will not be as effective being out there every play. I think Brown has ton of latent talent.

I think Ronnie Brown will end up being the better pro, but I think Cadillac will still end up being an adequate RB. Remember, Emmitt Smith had bad measurables but great intangibles coming out of college, just like Cadillac.

I agree, Ronnie have the more complete back over Cadillac. Cadillac reminds me of a less-talented Duece

I completely agree. Brown will be a very nice back in the league.

Heh, turns out I'm not alone. As I've said before, Brown will amount to the better NFL RB over Cadillac.

Not to jump on the bandwagon here, I still think Cadillac will make the best pro out of all the backs coming out this year. Better than Brown, better than Benson, even better than the incredible Ciatrick Fason.

Hate to sound like I'm beating a dead horse, but I have to agree with everyone's statements about Brown being more complete. Not that Cadillac will be a flop, I just see Brown being more successful right away.

I actually think Fason has as much potential as any one of those guys, however I figure it will take him longer to emerge than any of the concensus top 3.
