I'd like to engage in a little conversation about Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. I am a supporter of drafting them, but I know there are dissenters and I'd like to hear what people think if you'd want to engage in a discussion...
I love Ronnie Brown. It's tragic he can never stay healthy, but I feel is quite the potential steal, or top RB2...took him last year, and yeah...he broke down BUT I don't regret it one bit. The value of the Miami RB's I feel is awesome as well if you can snag Ricky Williams to back Ronnie up. With Brandon Marshall and Henne getting more experience, I only see wider running lanes for them to run through as teams have to respect the pass more. Plus, Miami's playoff schedule is cupcake city.
However, the injury risk is real and the regular season schedule for both of them is quite difficult. Add that to having to spend two relatively high draft picks and you have a more cloudy situation.
Where is it too early to draft Brown and try and snag Williams? I'm thinking around 50 is a perfect time to snag him, but earlier is questionable just because of his injury history and to ensure the 'position', you likely need to snag Ricky a few rounds later and spend another draft pick. Where is Brown going in your drafts? You drafting him? Handcuffing him with Ricky? Thoughts?
