I'm just wondering if it might not be a good idea to draft him in hopes of trading him later, perhaps after a couple of good games, or right after the draft. Find the chump that drafted a QB too early and make him an offer for Brown. Who knows, if you get him late 3rd, he might pay off for you.

Brown does not have a solid frame and runs to straight up. He has skills, but with his running style, he takes to many hard hits. He has the skills, but he has to avoid the injury.

His injury right now is a broken hand. He hit it on someone's helmet I believe.

He just doesn't have quite the heart to do it yet.


You hit the nail on the head there. He won't play through minor injuries. I remember Fisher called him out last year and said he needed to suck it up a little.

Not a good sign. If you don't have heart already, I doubt he will ever have it.

I'll let someone else have the headache.

Im not sold on this idea. If you look at many of the top backs, they play on teams that lost many games and were behind.

NYG/DAL/WASH - all were 6-10 and outscored but produced fairly productive RB's. Tiki was the #1 back. By being behind that also gives your back many chances at dump passes, as was the case for DD last year. I wouldnt pay much attention to that. I think Brown is a great sleeper pick but wouldnt take him any earlier than late 4th.

If and when Travis Henry signs with another team besides Tennessee, Chris Brown is likely to end up on a lot of my teams.

sorry, but that's a load of rubbish.

how can you question a guy who doesn't suit up for a physical sport like football because he has a broken hand or has serious pain in his foot?

I bet the people that question athlete's desire or heart or lack of pain threshhold, are the ones that would take a week off work if they came down with a cold. Unless you know Chris Brown, don't pretend to assume how much desire or heart he has.

TN had a great defense two years ago, when they almost beat the Patriots in the playoffs.

Tennessee's situation is perfectly fine for Brown to thrive in. He's got an awesome qb, and a very solid OL. What would scare me about Brown is the injury situation and the potential of trading for Travis Henry.

Exactly. With my 11 and 14 picks, I am considering taking Moss and T.O. If I do, Im hoping to get Brown in the 3rd......if Henry doesn't show up.

Last I heard, Jacksonville was the team looking hard at Henry.

Chris Brown is seen as an injury problem but I can't put that on him. He really wasn't hurt much except for the turf toe which is very painful and is something that anyone could get.

However, I just think there are better options out there at RB that I will go after in his place.
