Though the situation is slightly different as they will be battling for a backup role in StL and its the starting job in Cinci. I guess it just depends on how you look at it and what your opinion is. To me its just a little more risk than I would like to take in my drafts. Ive been wrong plenty before and if I'm wrong now than thats fine. But gamble enough and you will lose eventually
it's not really a gamble. i wouldn't pick him over shaun alexander or edgerrin james. but if there's nothing but marshall, stephen davis, dillon and then the big dropoff to guys like barlow, kevin jones, staley. marshall is the way to go just for his ability to have 100yds and multi TD games. i'd say he's around the 12th best rb.
perry will not play much unless rudi flops. they drafted him because rudi can become a FA i think after this year or next year, and they don't want to pay him the $ cuz they're not sold on him (just M.O.)
