personally, I think he is the most underrated back in the NFL. His value to the Eagles is probably as important as any other back not named tomlinson. I'm not saying this lightly, or as a homer. You can just see it (see the game versus the giants). his dual threat ability usually combines nicely with mcnabb's (when healthy), as teams have a lot to factor in with every snap. He is a lot better between the tackles than anyone gives him credit for, and in space, I don't think there are many (or any better--again, not named tomlinson). He is a quality player. That said, he drops for two reasons: one overt, the other subtle. And both have merit. I argue he isn't an injury risk as much as he gets credit for. That being said, he always has something going on, even if he plays. It makes decision making difficult. The other reason, is reid is still addicted to donovan, so westbrook gets his touches, but they aren't always rushes. In the end sum of things, it really doesn't have a practical matter statistically, he still gets his. BUT, since his yardage is more evenly divided between rushing and receiving relative to the rest of the backs in the league, I think he doesn't get as much hype in shows, and I think that gets reflected in his draft perception. He never seems to have the buzz, rather, people who end up with them feel almost like they "have to take him" or his the normal pick. Heck I personally felt that I both got a steal and settled-at the same time in a draft--when I got him at seven. He is my favorite eagles player almost ever, but there is a connotation with him that is hard to shake fantasy-wise, even though he flat-out performs when in.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
