A lot of people are calling this guy the undisputed top RB, but until the combine he was falling all the way until the late firstin mocks. How can a backup college RB be the #1 overall talent in the draft? I'm confused....
Go ahead and draft this guy in the top5 and then see if he can handle 200 carries in the NFL, or if he can even compete on the NFL level as a featured back. The guy is huge, yet they let Caddy carry the load and run the goalline carries in Auburn, and then they tout Ronnie for his receiving ability?
I would call Brown just as big of a bust risk as a top5 pick compared to both of the QBs, and when you're a RB that's a pretty big bust risk. ESPECIALLY if he goes to the Dolphin's like 90% of the consensus has him going. Best thing in the world for Ronnie Brown, Miami goes QB and he falls to Chicago/Tampa where there are safety nets in place.
I have to disagree on Brown. Brown was ranked as a top 10 talent by many scouts before his combine workout. The combine just gave him the edge over cadillac and benson in the draft. How can a backup be an NFL starter? See Terrell Davis, See Domanick Davis Plus, look at who he was competing with. Cadillac is a very talented RB. He and Brown both are talented. Cadillac had 1300 yds and Brown had 1,000 yds last season. Two 1,000 yds backs? That's ridiculous. These two are both very talented and very determined. It may take them time to adjust to the NFL, but I predict big things for both of them. Benson i could see being a bust, but these two Auburn backs look solid. Maybe they'll never be LT, but they can both be quaility starting RBs in the league. Sure they could bust, but so can any pick. Look at the Qbs that have busted in the last few years. SEC rbs tend to do well in the NFL and I don't see these two being any different.
