Will there be any big rookie runningback performers for 2004

Postby pmac_03 » Sat Apr 10, 2004 10:34 pm

im a big notre dame fan, and cant wait to see where julius jones will end up. now does anyone have any thoughts on the impact of these runningbacks of the 04 draft, are there any being overlooked due to the great amount of wide receiver talent?

i love j.jones ;-D , he had a great combine, but will only get drafted in 2nd round tops, he definitely would have been a 1st round pick IMO if he got to play two years ago, he was great on the cover of all the college books, but i love him because he has been the only light in the darkness of notre dame football the past couple of ... decades! ha. anyways what are your thoughts on the rookie rbs and any thoughts on there fantasy impact.

It all depends on situation, you gotta wait to see where they get drafted.

Yep, I would think that if Denver, New England, or Dallas draft a rookie RB they could have an immediate impact.

I know it seem like there always 1 rookie rb who make a big impact every year. The question is trying to find who. which is easier said then done.

If NE and Dallas take Steven Jackson/Kevin Jones, I'm thinking one of them will be the top rookie back this year.

I think Denver traded up to get Jackson or Jones (depending on whether or not Detroit takes a RB). I like Greg Jones a lot, too. I think he would be great in NE, taking over the Antwoin Smith role.

As CC mentioned, it all depends on where they go.

Right, but if Denver picks a RB, there may be an RBBC.

I think what just about what everyone else said is correct - it all depends on who someone is drafted to. I wouldn't expect any huge rookie numbers from any of this years rookie RBs though, maybe a decent #3 RB at best.

Yeah, it is completely dependant on where they go. Immediate impacts would be places like Dallas and NE, while future impacts could be places like denver, pitt...another variable is where dillon goes :-?
