Compared to the other RBs on that list, they aren't high risk. Compared to Ahman Green, Deuce McAllister and Shaun Alexander they certainly are.

I don't see any particular reason to consider DD, Rudi, Griffin or Chris Brown a bad play right now. They are all young studs, which is generally good for RBs. Their collective coaching staffs feel good enough to go into the season with them as the starter. Ingore any "xyz is pushing abc in camp", because we get that every year and it amounts to nothing. Those four are the starters and no amount of "this just in" type of news will change my mind until they actually get benched in a game.

The news on Westbrook is too soon to make any immediate judgements. I was starting to think that Buckhalter wasn't going to have as big an effect on his carries as I initially thought. Whoever they bring in, if they bring someone in, won't be good enough to steal important carries from Westbrook.

Everyone should know what I think of Thomas Jones by now. 26 year old journeyman RB who has never been good enough for a team to think about keeping him. He'll be kinda like David Boston was last year. He'll have a bunch of shitty performances, then a couple huge breakout performances and all the "I told you so" will start, then he'll gradually fall off the map. The Thomas Jones Fanclub will desperately keep him in as the starter hoping for that return to glory of 5 weeks ago, but it won't happen.

Then you have William Green and Lee Suggs. If they played anywhere except CLE, they might be alright. Butch Davis is crazy. He's brought in 3 RBs of the future the last 4 seasons. I guess luck will get on his side eventually.

I agree wholeheartedly with KG on his TJ statements. Travis Minor will be a better back than TJ this year, and I expect many owners to be dissapointed when the season ends. From everything I've gathered I don't see any reason to expect the great things that others have been prophasizing.
