People grabbing Ronnie Brown in the 3rd/4th round right now are going to be just as happy as those that got Portis in rounds 3/4 last year.
Ladell Betts isn't a good example to use, if for anything Ricky is 3x as talented as Betts is, so that in itself is a wildcard because he has that pure ability at Rb to produce...Secondly all you have to do is watch the guy play, he is far ahead of Ronnie Brown right now, and is a goal line back in his own right, what makes any of you guys think Ronnie Brown is going to come off an ACL tear, and steal carries and goal line touches away from a healthy Ricky? Long term keeper or dynasty yea I can buy that argument, redraft, Ricky is where the value is...More then likely these two end up with similiar numbers this year, Parcells isn't going to have a workhorse, he just came from a system using 2 backs for years , with the QB situation in flux don't expect that to change, Ronnie isn't ever going to see a season like last year for those expecting that.
Ronnie is going in the 3rd/4th, Ricky is going anywhere from the 6th-9th as far as a few weeks ago, its very easy to see where your getting the value at...Read between the lines and you can see Parcells favors Ricky, he has no reason at all to give the ball to Ronnie the same way he was last year, even if he gets back to 100% he will never see that type of production again.
