First off, Addai is quite talented, he just had some durability issues in college. As for the Colts, well obviously he has a much better oline than arrington had to work with, and he is in perhaps the most prolific offense in the NFL. I'd be surprised if he busts.
Not sure any of that is true, or makes any sense. But thanks for posting.
Arrington is/was more talented, and had a better college career - by far. Addai never won the starting job outright, only got it due to injury and when he did he ended up getting hurt. Not exactly an impressive college career.
So people don't bust if they get drafted by a good team? How on earth does that make sense? On a good team, it's probably harder to make the roster, start, get playing time, because they are good. A good team can't afford growing pains, rookie mistakes, rookies hitting the wall. The Colts are built to win now. There's a bunch of teams Addai would probably get far more playing time on, because after week 5 they won't have a shot at the playoffs. Busts happen to every team, good and bad.
And I love Addai's comment of "It's a lot faster then college". Yeah that's what I want to hear from the RB who's going to lead the Colts to the SB according to some people around here. If Addai gets 500-600 yards, it will be a very successful year.
