Ok.....You have the 1st pick in your rookie draft and you are in desperate need of a RB. Do u snatch Kevin Jones, Julius Jones, or Tatum Bell?

Definitely Julius or Kevin Jones, but I would personally go with Julius. He might not be as talented as Kevin, but he's in a better situation with Parcells.

I would go with either Kevin Jones or Julious Jones. Kevin has atleast a supporting cast to take the pressure off him Williams,Rogers & Harrington. While Julious is under a microscope 1. Playing & starting as a rb under Bill Parcells & 2. Playing for the Dallas Cowboys. But this pressure could make Julious work harder and be better on the field and get over 1000 yrds but unlikely but still possible.

I would not pick Tatum Bell becuase there are too many RB's in Denver. The dreaded RBBC. For this year, I expect the two Joneses to have very similar #'s, but for the long run I expect Kevin Jones to be better becuase he has more talent. And this is coming from a Cowboys fan.

I would grab Julius Jones, he has the best chance to start in Dallas, and should post the best numbers this year

I'd go with Julius Jones.

Bill Parcells RB = Stud.

If Parcells could get Hambrick to produce some semi-decent numbers, imagine what he could do with Julius.

1. Julius Jones
2. Kevin Jones
3. Tatum Bell

However, ask me again in August. If Tatum Bell has the starting job, it would be a much tougher decision (although I'd still probably go Julius, however Kevin would certainly drop)...

The three rb's in top 1 being the best of choice & chance to succed.

1. Julious Jones
2. Kevin Jones
3. Tatum Bell (if wins starting job he moves to #2 or possibly #1 and Kevin Jones moves down).

I just took Kevin Jones with the 1st overall pick in our rookie draft (traded up to get him, too). But that's for my dynasty team where I'm trying to get the best long term pick instead of just going for the most impact this year.

Denver's backfield is horribly crowded right now and it seemed like a bigger risk at this point to take Bell. As Canacuna mentioned, that could all change in August. I'm also not completely sold on Julius Jones. I know, I know. Trust Parcells. Something doesn't quite match up right though.

Hambrick's numbers don't even qualify as semi-decent. To play an entire season and not be able to get 1000 yards is pathetic. That's 60 yards a game...

Well, for a guy with Hambrick's talent (or lack thereof), those numbers look pretty damn good to me.
