After Dom none of these guys really proved a whole lot yet. Thats why these ranking are hard to get perfect...a lot of these guiys are injury prone and haven't played much. You have to do these rankings by how well they played when they did play.


Aside from that, off season moves could greatly impact backs like Onterrio Smith...

Dom Davis, I think, is definitely the most likely to post a huge year next year... He has the skills, the gametime experience, and a coach that loves to give him the rock... He's definitely number 1.

The Bills went way out on a limb to take an exceptionally gifted, but seriously injured, back when they already had Henry in the backfield... They have too much vested in him to keep him on the bench... And Henry is injury prone... But, I'm just not impressed with that line... McGahee could blow up, but he will definitely be splitting time behind a good back and a crappy line... I put him at number 2....

Onterrio Smith definitely has the skills, and Mike Tice has big hopes for him, but he is (at the moment) third fiddle behind 2 gifted backs... In all likelihood, one of those guys will be traded, and Onterrio will see the touches to put up some good numbers, but I still put him at number 3...

That's my take on things....

Both RB's could be good, but it all depends on their role in the offense and the number of carries they get. I do think that Chris Brown has a better chance to start/get lots of carries this year though.

I disagree, Griffin's running style reminds me of Barry Sanders.
If Barry wasn't too small, neither is Griffin.

That could be true, but he still needs an injury to Portis, to even See ANY playing time. Plus he still has Anderson there.

Anderson moved to fullback, right? At this point, all these guys with the exception of Davis need an injury to get a starting job.
