Maroney started game 1, Fred Taylor started game 2, and Morris is on top of the depth chart.
I'm banking on the idea that we know what Morris is capable of. We know Faulk's role in the offense. We may or may not know what Maroney is capable of. And we definitely do not know what Fred Taylor is capable of.
No one these guys are high % picks, but then again none of them are being taken anywhere close to other RBs in the draft either. Depth charts don't mean all that much in New England IMO. Preseason doesn't mean that much either. We know this will be a good offense and perhaps even the best by a large margin. We know that the Rbs have had success in the system in the past, only one guy can get on the field at a time, and that the system as a whole has produced very very good numbers from the RB position (if not one guy).
Fred Taylor is a lottery ticket. The other guys, perhaps outside of Maroney, are depth in my eyes. Depth is only valuable after injuries occur. Lottery tickets might be low percentage shots, but at least there might be something to actually win there.
