Brown's RB worth drafting now?

Postby benm3218 » Tue Jul 26, 2005 5:44 pm

Better Line Should Mean Better Rushing
Terry Pluto, Akron Beacon Journal

The Browns should be able to run the ball because Ross Verba is gone, the team has added character and talent in new guards Joe Andruzzi and Cosey Coleman, and because Lee Suggs, William Green and Reuben Droughns have all started in the NFL -- and had, at least, limited success.


Yeah, but who would you draft.... unless there's an injury, I wouldn't draft one.

I think Suggs will win the job. Suggs to me seems to have the most talent, period.
Rueben isn't in Denver anymore and could have had mile high stats. Green, who is Green? He had a choice: run or toke. He made his choice and unless injuries cripple Suggs and Droughns, I don't see William getting much play.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Suggs will win it easy.. no doubt in my mind.

We'll find out whether Droughns is actually any good or just a by-product of a the Denver system. I dont think Green was that bad of a back (at least his rookie year). I guess we'll find by who ever gets the back up duties

I have little doubt that Suggs will win the job, it's whether he'll sustain for the entire year. I'm not too keen on placing my bets on a back who seems to be so prone to injury. He's a guy who had injury issues in college and that doesn't seem to have changed much at the pro level.

Pretty simple really.

Lee Suggs=maybe the starter in what has been a less than stellar fantasy backfield, more likely a RBBC.

M. Anderson=currently listed as #1 on the DEN depth chart at RB, a position that is fantasy gold.

If Suggs is so good, and they had Green, why did they go sign Droughns?

B/c it was initially thought Green was going to be cut or traded b/c of his poor attitude. Green though, surprised people and showed up w/ a good attitude and work ethic and therefore kept a job.

You need a capable backup, and if Green wasnt there, somebody has to push the starter for the job.

Someone needs to come up with this "depth chart" that shows Mike Anderson as the #1 RB in Denver, b/c as far as I can tell it doesn't exist. Mike Anderson was moved to the FB position two years ago! I've seen a few different people this morning claiming this as fact, yet every depth I found online still shows Rueben Droughns on it for Denver.

Oh btw, there are no depth charts BEFORE TRAINING CAMP EVEN STARTS!!
