That's right,I said it...can't say it enough.


If any top 10 RB is overrated right now, it has to be LT2. I'm shocked at the short term memories of some fantasy owners.

I don't understand 2 things here.

1) Edge overrated? He is rated roughly (maybe a spot high/lo) at #9... who would be ahead of him. Henry, S. Davis, D. Davis?

2) Most over rated RB... LT2??? from you King Gidrha... PLease explain. I can understand maybe switching positions up with Priest but that ain't overrated. 1 or 2... no lower. Has to be a joke...right?

9. Kevan Barlow
10. Domanick Davis

These are just ,y opinion. They do not reflect the opinons of other FSU fans.


Where do you have Jamal?

No Jamal in the top 10?

your kidding right?


No Ricky either...

Edge did put up good numbers, but in the games I saw, he needed 3 handoffs from the 1 to ge the ball in. He was not the force he used to be. But he was fighting injuries all year, and still coming back from his previous injury.

Edge has the potential to be a top 5 RB if he hits on all cylinders, and I would love to get him at #9 or #10

I doubt this will ever be the case for James again but as long as he is in Indy and the receivers are tackled just short of the stripe he will put up solid FF numbers.




Looks like Michael Bennett is your man. He's healthy and most of his TD's are on long runs. Not surprising since he is THE FASTEST MAN IN THE NFL!!!

Since everyone else is weighing in on this, I might as well too.

Edge is a stud - he was injured - he came back solid during the 2nd half last yr - saying he is overrated as the 9th/10th best RB is wrong.

My question is what RBs do you think should be drafted ahead of him? Faulk? Fraud? DDavis? SDavis? Dillon? It just doesnt make any sense to me that he could be considered overrated where he currently is being ranked.

i just dont think hes that good anymore

...ya the injury really screwed him up.. i think hes a bit above average...


A bit above average is Correll Buckhalter or Najeh Davenport or Warrick Dunn. Being a top 10 RB is not a "bit above average."

I think Edge will be one of the top RB's. As a rookie and soph he was good. Last year I saw flashes of brilliance from him. I think he will have a hall of fame career. Plus, he's only 25 yrs old.

ONE amazing season?

So which one of these two do you consider not amazing?

2100 total yds, 22 TD's

or

2300 total yds, 19 TD's

???
