Default Deangelo Williams, RB from Memphis

If anyone is interested, this kid is an awesome running back as far as production goes. He is on TV, ESPN now playing Akron. He has No O-Line to run behind, sound familiar? But has put up some extreme numbers. He is projected a first round draft pick in this year's draft...

He is not the best RB in the draft. The level of competition he has ran against is very minimal. Im not saying he isn't a first rounder i just don't think he is the best in the draft.

His team is not very talented either.

Maroney is the best back available.

So if you put Reggie Bush on Memphis' team, his numbers would be that much better than what Williams has done? Keep in mind Williams is coming up on the NCAA record for most career 100 yard games.

And speaking of "minimal competition", have you seen the rush defenses that Bush has played against this year?

DeAngelo is the best senior RB in the draft. I'll reserve final judgement until all the eligible prospects have declared their intentions

But on the subject of RBs in the Draft, the guy on 610 said this morning we should draft Bush because he could break long runs that DD couldn't. Jeez,
you don't have to expend the #1 overall in the NFL college Draft to get a
RB with break-away speed, just have to do a little scouting. Look at Willie Parker, the guy the Steelers brought down here this past fall as their main RB. He is really fast, true break away threat and was signed by the Steelers last year as an undrafted FA out of college. They are out there, just gotta dig for them.

I think DeAngelo Williams is the best pure RB in the draft, Bush probably has higher overall potential and is a better athlete, but Williams is a better pure RB, and he is built more like a prototypical NFL RB (listed as 5-10, 217 lbs). He now owns the NCAA career record with 34 games of 100+ yards, and I thought I heard earlier in the week that he holds the career record for total yards from scrimmage (not sure on this one but I think I remember hearing that).

DeAngelo Williams is a workhorse and is the best everydown back in college football. I like players that come from these types of schools and excel, ala LT and Marshall Faulk. I think he belongs in that class. Please Casserly take your head out of your ***** and trade down for this pick and get some needed talent at other positions with your extra picks.

brutal honesty (which most will see as insanity), i'm not overly impressed by either USC running back. white i think has the most potential in the pro's because i see him as a DD type back. not necessarily having breakaway speed, but the ability to break arm tackles and carry defenders ... he'd probably excell on teams like pittsburgh, new england, houston, etc. where as bush can make the secondary miss but bit takes impeccable blocking from USC's linemen to get to the outside (nobody ... but NOBODY does this perfectly against pro defenses ... the closest is KC & Denver). the contingent that i maintain makes these two guys is a stellar offense and a stupidly perfect front 6. both have serious potential because of their physical gifts at the Pro level, but i'm taking a wait & see approach.

maroney i havent seen, so i cant comment either way on him.

Yea well what's the word on White? Is he coming out or not?

Williams is a good back with exceptional vision. He's also a pretty good receiver. He does have the break-away speed. Though I'm not sure we trade back that far to pick up a rb if we have the #1 pick we might as well get bush.

Williams you have to remember is very injury prone. He missed a few games here and there throughout his career. He is kinda like Davis with his injuries, he doesn't break any bones or tear any ligaments but he will miss a few games. I think Maroney has the body and size to be an every down back in the nfl. I also think Maroney's size and power will propel him to being a better rb than williams in the nfl because he will be able to get the tough yards that deangelo can't. I still think Deangelo will be a solid back, maybe like a warrick dunn.
