Yeah, Dominck Davis is way overrated, he's an okay back who had a couple of good games on a team that will take another couple years to mature. While Cinci with Palmer maybe in same situation they have warrick and C. Johnson. Also, Rudi is fast and hard to tackle so lack of passing game may help or not affect his stats. The bottom line is rudi will get more tds, dominick is unproven and on bad offense, and Cinicy is headed forward at much faster pace as a team. As for Barlow, he's an interesting 2nd rb if you have insurance, the 49ers don't really have an offense so his td numbers probably won't be great but their defense is good, so he may have chance to put up some decent numbers if they dont' get to far behind.

I think Rudi is a pretty big bust candidate - much more than DDavis.

As mentioned in other threads, he had 4 great games last yr - all against bad run defenses, so his total stats are really not a good indicator at all. CIN SOS against the run is simply the toughest in the NFL this yr - they will put the ball up early and often. Defenses will force CIN to pass more with the Palmer effect - make the inexperienced QB beat them. Finally - trading up to draft Perry isnt a strong indicator for Rudi.

As for your statement that DDavis is overrated because of a couple good games - I argue he had more good games than Rudi did. They may not have been as good - but he was consistantly more successful.

The biggest concern with DDavis is his frailty and a healthy Hollings pushing him.

Barlow wont get the numbers most people think he will - that is unless he is simply that talented where he can take on 8 defenders every play, and SF's D can stop opponents from scoring. :-t

This is a big reason why the 2nd rd RBs dont have a lot of value to them - just a whole lot of risk.

BEarsfan, you said DD was "unproven?" But here you are talking about how awesome rudi is. Now im a fan of both of them, but as far as i know DD has more experience than Rudi, and has amassed more yards with more attempts. If either of the 2 is "unproven" its Rudi.
