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.
Yep, and then some. Great info and insight.
