If Dallas takes a RB in the first round, whomever it is, they will likely have the most fantasy football impact. I doubt Hambrick could keep his job unless his competition were walk-ons, and Parcells loves to pound the ball for clock management. So, no matter how good the guy is, if he's durable, he'll get a lot of carries.
If Denver grabs a 1st round RB, they'd have to be next in line. Portis, Anderson, Gary, Davis. Gotta give history some credit here.
The long shot (because you never know how Bellicheck will use him) is the RB New England will likely take.
I suppose if Detroit takes a RB they go in contention as well, but aside from that I wouldnt not expect another rookie running back to see more than 2 games worth of action.

Same here, but I fear that more than one person will be running in Denver.
I fear the same thing. Even if they pass on an RB in the draft, they already have Griffin and Anderson, and even if they eventually end up with 1 main RB, it'll probably take a few too many weeks to decide.
I'm starting to hear that the Denver trade with Cinci was only to get a better position to trade up with Detroit. Sounds like they want Winslow. Just a rumor for now, but something to watch.
Denver's backfield is crowded, but it was in Portis' first year, too. It was Anderson, Gary, and Portis and eventually Portis won out. If Jackson or Jones were to go to Denver I wouldn't hesitate jumping on them, but I'm in keeper and dynasty leagues. For re-draft leagues it wouldn't be as crucial to jump early, just someone to keep in mind for a sleeper.
