I think Parcells is a pretty good judge of talent - certainly at least as good as anyone on this board! If he sees something he likes in this guy then I think he's worthy of drafting, certainly at least as a #3 RB and maybe even as high as a #2.

It is good to see the response on a topic started by me, I think its good for the cafe with so many great minds, and this post has showed not only what great writers this cafe has, but also the many different perspectives in one post.

In my opinion,(funny that i have one considering I asked the question as the post) but I believe that Julius Will be veryh good number 3, and that he may be good trade bait as one of you said. Jones could emerge to be great, and so could Kevin Jones, as Gambini said, but i think given the setting Julius is in better position. Also, Parcells passed up on Jackson and Kevin Jones, because the value of the bills first round pick next year, in his mind, and probably will turn out to be more valuable than Julius. This is why Parcells traded down. I think Julius will have plenty of TDs enough to cover as a number 3 RB. Cowboys, 32nd rank in difficulty of schedule? nice stat to know as a cowboys fan. Oh and by the way, if quincy carter can throw for over 3000 yards, Julius Jones can run for over 1,300

If Parcells trust him then I trust him. I think Bill might know a little more about football than me... a little.

The reason JJ is ranked higher than KJ is b/c of a guy named Pinner in Detriot. That is all. Harrington and Quincy are not scaring anyone yet. This will be a fun year and a great rookie draft class that will contribute early.

I agree with the fact that Bill Parcells knows football and picked him for a reason.. the first thing that comes to mind is Curtis Martin.. but at the same time, I'd say most of the coaches (probably all) in the NFL know more about football then I do, and probably many people here, and they still pick players who bust. So just because these guys are pros, and know football better then us, doesn't make them invincible.

Just for the record, he did draft Rodney Hampton and Curtis Martin, two pretty good backs.


He also drafted another smallish running back, Joe Morris out of Michigan.
21 TD's in '85
Won a Super Bowl in '86.
5,296 total yards in 4 1/2 years.

I personally think the better pick may have been Greg Jones from FSU, for the way that Parcells really likes to pound the ball. He's a beast. He looks like O.J. Andreson with speed. Knee injury may have scared them off. They already have a few backs and FB's that can catch out of the backfield, so JJ may be a 2 down back early. His size (5'9"?) is an issue for me, although his arms are almost as huge as his brothers. He's gonna get 1,100 and 6 barring injury though with about 3.9 to 4.2 avg. I don't know if Parcell's as much as Maurice Carthon will have anything to do with Jones' success or failure. Parcell's forte is really making QB's and Defenses better.

Im just looking around for input on this guy. My 'boys rookie pick, and starting running back. Is this guy a guy you draft late, as in late late, or a guy you pick up after you see how he does? With eric bickerstaff out for the season, Jones looks to get the GL carries. And another thing, How do you guys ranks Julius Jones as compared to Troy Hambrick, above or below hime.

Thanks,
Matt

Uh-oh... Guttpuppy is gonna be PISSED!



That was some excellent information you posted. I love little factoids like that out of the blue that no one else was considering. It just further confirms the fact that Parcells has the tendency to know what he is doing. Either himself directly or knowing the right people to talk to when it comes to scouting reports.
