He has shown some flashes over the last two years. It is make or break. But I think your assessment that he will be a good back up to be a little low. I see him starting as the number two back in many leauges. There is a steep drop in the talent pool at RB after the 7th pick. I can see a lot of guys rolling the dice on him. Especially those "short bus" types who took a WR or QB in the second round when he is left with the A-Train and James Stewart. These two guys are proven comodities. Ham is a wild card. I think the key to success in the second third and sleeper RBs is too look at the O-line. Dallas' O-line ain't much to write home about.
