Reggie Bush=King Felix of NFL in 06?

Despite being a big fan of DeAngelo Williams, who coming into the season I thought was the top NFL RB prospect, I have moved Reggie Bush ahead of him. He is flat out special, he could easily go #1 overall.

Yep. Being Warrick Dunn isn't a bad thing.

as long as you're not sharing women with michael vick. :-b
that could be a bad thing.

but, reggie bush is an incredible talent...ucla had like the 110th worst rush D in the nation, so, let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet.

there is not a doubt in my mind that reggie bush is the #1 overall pick this year. way to come back for your senior year and cost yourself money leinart! vince young, learn from this tool. :-b

agree about Leinart....it'll cost him. When do you think he'll be selected?

It depends on the draft order and what team, like the Dolphins, picks high enough and is desperate for a QB.

He'll go no lower then 3rd. Question is who'll trade up to get him?

San Fran, Green Bay and the Jets all want him bad I'm sure. I think Houston goes with Ferguson. I say he ends up a Niner.

Didnt these 2 teams just draft a highly touted QB?

As far as Bush is concerned, why is he not used as an every down back? My guess is that Carroll thinks theres an injury risk if he has to run between the tackles. He'll probably go first in the draft, but I'm certainly not ready to have a bust carved for him for the HOF. RBBCs arent generally considered great players in the NFL.

I think it's just more of a way to both keep Bush fresh, and maximize the talent he has (White is too good a player to keep sitting on the bench). By the time you factor in his rushing, receiving, and returning Bush is still touching the ball 20-30 times a game.

You also have to take into account that 20 carries are a lot more tiring when those 20 go for 200 yards ;).

RBBCs arent generally considered great players in the NFL.


It didn't seem to affect Ronnie Brown or Caddy's draft stock, and they both got fewer touches per game than Bush is getting.
