Id rather have TJ over JJ - easily. The funny part is that TJ is being drafted a rd or 2 after JJ. Sounds good to me!

Yes, but one has been in the league 4 years and done nothing. I'd much rather take a chance on someone who hasnt proven themselves terrible at RB, than someone who has not been able to post a single 1000 yard season (and only one season above 4 ypc) in 4 years.

Proven himself terrible? When? In Arizona? Looked to me the only thing proven there was that ARI was a terrible team that played from behind so much that any runnung game was pretty obsolete. He played great in a limited role of a west coast offense last yr. Im just saying dont be so quick to write him off.

If you did not know that it's ok, Julius does not bring it up b/c of his brother's NFL history.


Are you trying to insult everyones knowledge here?

I was SO hoping Dallas would take Greg Jones. 6'1" 250 pounds, runs a legit 4.5, is 5% body fat. Did anyone else see that hit he put on Miami (now Redskins) safety Sean Taylor?

Sean Taylor's supposedly the second coming of Ronnie Lott, and was hyped up more than Cowboys Roy Williams (yeah right) and Greg Jones came through and put Sean Taylor on his backside. This guy is a freight train and is just about impossible to tackle with a full head of steam.

He did the same thing to North Carolina safety Dexter Jackson. Jackson was known for his hard hitting, solid tackling style of play. He came at an angle to tackle Greg Jones, and Jones threw the forearm shiver from hell. It looked like Jackson had literally been hit by a moving pick-up truck, and it knocked his helmet off and sent him tumbling to the turf.

I LOVE Greg Jones. I think if Fred Taylor gets injured and Greg is thrust into a starting role, he could be borderline top 15 fantasy back.

Bleh, if Jones was so great then why was he only getting as many carries as a freshman and a sophomore when he was a senior? Jones is somewhat overrated, knocking down DB's twice in a season doesn't make you a great player.

I should also note that said freshman and sophomore RB's had a significantly higher ypc than Mr. Jones.

I don't deny it, but skills-wise TJ leaves little brother Julius in the dust.
