I think Brown is turning into a solid #3 back and if he keeps up his hard work, (he looked great in the first preseason game) he could even be a # 2. Remember he avg over 5 yds a carry in the playoffs. This is when everyone on everyteam steps it up a level and plays their hardest and he excelled as well. If he continues to step it up he could be a great value pick.
I got him over a month and a half ago in the 11th round!!!!! (this was before George was out)
I am lovin that pick!!!!
RB: L. Tomlinson, F. Taylor, K.Jones, C.Brown, O. Smith, C. Buckhalter, Ron Dayne <-- you never know
WR:T. Owens, A.Boldin, A. Lelie, A. Davis,
TE: Antonio Gates
K: None till 5 min before game 1
D: New England

Agreed. Chris Brown still has very little NFL experience even though he's shown flashes of talent. I think people drafting him as a top #3 RB could be in for dissappointment. The presence of Antowain Smith makes the Chris Brown a gamble this year.
Don't forget Antowain Smith is a seasoned vet that has won Super BowlS and that the Titan's window of opportunity is closing quickly.
On the contrary, the Titan's as an organization has produced quite a few very good players and continue to be a very good team. They aren't over the hill yet, but they do lack the last ingredient that would give them a championship currently. I don't see them as a team with their window closing.
Inexperience and his "upright" running style aside, I'd have to say that 100 yards in the first half vs the Miami Dolphins D is pretty damn solid. Whomever took Brown in the 3rd round and beyond is a straight-up thief... now let's see if he can stay healthy...
