It's amazing how people can classify a player as injury prone, or say a player has no chance of ever being a full-time starter when they have absolutely no clue.

Justin Fargas is no more injury prone than any other player in the league, and his size/speed combination is tantalizing. I think he will start very soon, and be very, very solid

he went to notre dame, played a year there, not very well

then he went to USC, played pretty well for a year (after missing the one year with the transferring rules)

then declared for the draft. so we still havent seen a full good season out of him as a #1 back

LOL - a lot of guessing going on this thread.

The injury prone label was slapped on him after he had major reconstructive knee surgery - on both knees. Thats why those who do know about Fargas will tell you to avoid him. Basically his knees are held together with bolts, pins, gum, and some duct tape.

You can quote me on this:

He will never have a full season as a feature RB in the NFL for any team.

He might be good for a game or three if Wheatley and Zero both get injured. It wont last however. He is simply too brittle.

He played a couple yrs at Michigan - where I personally witnessed one of his injuries. He transferred to USC I believe because he was never going to be the feature back behind the studs at Michigan.

HuggyBear Jr is the ultimate in preseason NFL hype.

I dont give a damn about the others, the reason he was chosen as a 3rd rounder is because his knees are held together and are not strong at all. He could have all the talent in the world but he will never be able to take a full seasons pounding.

Big deal. Domanick Davis was very injury prone in college. Jamal Lewis tore up a knee in college. Having major reconstructive surgery doesn't mean he won't be successful. And it doesn't mean his knees are held together by nuts, bolts and duct tape. Does that mean Edgerrin and Jamal won't last a full year? What about McGahee? Are you saying he'll never last a full NFL season because he had major reconstructive surgery?

If his knees were a big health risk, the Raiders wouldn't have drafted him so high. Every single running back in the NFL carries a significant injury risk and it's impossible to know when or where they will get injured. Two years ago, if I was at this board..I guarantee there would have been just as many people saying that Fred Taylor would NEVER have a full season, much less two in a row.

You saying Justin Fargas will never start 16 games for an NFL team is just conjecture and guesswork. It means nothing, and it's ridiculous for you to say. You might be right, and you might be wrong, but you really don't have a clue.
