The reason I've got Dwyer rated above Gerhart is Gerharts past knee injury history and his fumbling issues.
Without the past knee injuries Gerhart is a 2nd rd pick. I dropped him to the 3rd because of this.
Do you really want to draft a RB with an injury history to be the Texans feature RB? Ahman Green
Or a RB that has fumbling issues? Slaton
I like Gerhart but am wary of making him the Texans no.1 RB. Sign a FA RB and draft Gerhart in the 3rd rd. I've got no problems with this strategy
Gerhart will be a better NFL all around back because of his balance, his center of gravity is lower. Dwyer is a big, tall back & a much less elusive target to mark. Gerhart is short & stocky, very durable his entire Senior year & reliable hands.
