Who's the starting RB in Tennessee and what's the predictions on him? Will he be better than W. Dunn?

From what I have read, the job is Chris Brown's to lose. The fact that they signed Smith, however, does not indicate they are convinced he can carry the full load.
I saw a lot of Brown in college (Colorado alum), and he is a decent straight ahead runner. His great college production, however, was more a product of a very good offensive line then any extrodinary talent on Brown's part.
While I don't see him making it through training camp with a "feature back" role, he probably will take a majority of the carries this year simply due to lack of competition.

Keeper League (Keep 3)
QB - Daunte Culpeppe (Jake Plummer)

RB/WR - Marshall Faulk

TE - Todd Heap

At the moment it seems to be shaping up to be a RBBC, although we won't really know until the season (or at least pre-season)...this whole Eddie George thing just made everything more difficult.

All of these questions about players coming into a camp or leaving a team and going somewhere else stirring up concern about jobs being in jeopardy is something none of us can answer BUT should be decided during the pre-season and known before your drafts start...provided you aren't one of those guys who drafts before the end of August. If so, take your chances, because no one can really say for now.

If you look at Eddie George's numbers in this offense, most of his work was done between the tackles. I think Brown will probably be the RB1 here. I'm not that impressed by Smith, especially at this point in his career.

I agree - I'm not impressed with Smith either (and obviously New England wasn't either) - I think he's just veteran backup material for Brown.
