Which RB has more upside, Mark Ingram or Ryan Matthews?

Postby 18 and 1 » Mon Mar 01, 2010 10:23 am

Seeing how Matthews is doing very well at the combine, and he runs through tackles like a knife through butter, and Mark INgram already has the big trophey on his mantle and will run in the 4.4 range, and has very few weaknesses, which one of these RBs do you think will be the better NFL player? Matthews is a liability in the passing game and sort of reminds me of Chris Wells, only more of a liability. Ingram is a liability in pass protection. I actually like Ingram's build better because it's easier for him to run small. Matthews has this ability for someone his size, but not as good as Ingram.

They are coming out different years, we need to see Ingram broken down for another year first. Ingram reminds me alot of Emmitt Smith, but I really like Mathews though and feel like he'd be a great fit for the Chargers. Right now I'll say Ingram because while he won't tear up the combine he has all the traits you want in a Rb like vision and toughness and ability to be a workhorse, he seems like he'll have a long career ahead of him.

Matthews just landed in a dream spot for fantasy purposes. Loved watching him run last season and I really think 1000-12 Td's isn't a crazy projection given their division with a potent SD offense.
