Default Garrett Wolfe=Maurice Jones-Drew?

I don't know much about Wolfe, so can any of you college football aficionados compare the two? Jones-Drew is only 5'7 and he's a powerful runner. Is Wolfe the same way? How do they compare against each other?

Default Re: Garrett Wolfe=Maurice Jones-Drew?

quick back that is more like Ryan Moats than Jones-Drew...He's not nearly as strong as Jones-Drew, who is pretty much a freak at his height. I don't think he will be drafted first day....3rd down back at best.

Maurice Jones-Drew = 5-7, 212 lbs.
Garret Wolfe = 5-7, 177 lbs.

Both have good speed, and quickness, Jones-Drew has much, much more running power. I don't see Wolfe being anything more than a change of pace back in the NFL, Jones-Drew could be a legitimate every-down back. Not to throw errant comparisons out there, but in terms of physical build Jones-Drew is the closest thing in the NFL right now to what Barry Sanders was, although he obviously is no where near the talent that Sanders had. If anything, Garret Wolfe is similar to Warrick Dunn, probably not quite as quick as Dunn was in his prime.

There's no comparison. Drew is a bowling ball. He was a powerful runner in college, and it's not a surprise that he's become a slam dunk in the NFL.

Wolfe is a workhorse, but he's undersized, not strong, and more of a finesse runner. Plus, his senior year wasn't as good as his junior year. I don't like his pro potential at all.

And after watching the Poinsettia Bowl, I think more people may agree with me now that Wolfe is not going to be an every-down kind of guy in the pros, if he lands a job at all.

20 carries, 28 yards...if he gets picked at all it will be really late unless he has an unbelievable combine.

Default Re: Garrett Wolfe=Maurice Jones-Drew?

Well as I posted in my Bowl thread....they lost thier QB a couple of games ago.
The horned frogs are not choped Bar-B-Q. They're the #4 run d in the nation. TBS:
The TCU corner coming on the blitz and detroying the puppy told me all I needed to know. This ain't Barry Sanders. Agreed: anything but a day two pick on the guy is just hope and a prayer. He needs to improve his blocking. Got Doug Free as a third to fourth rounder now. The reports of Free being a day one OLT are greatly exaggerated. TCU has nine coming back off of the d for '07. Mind Boggeling. My money says the Wolf (Belichick) ends up with Thomas Baker in '08. And he will be a wrecking ball for the pats defense for ten years. Can't bottle or teach 4.5 speed to a DE. And speed kills.

There is no comparison between the two players besides their height. In the NFL it is not really about how tall you are, it is about how heavy you are at your height. Garrett Wolfe would be lucky to last a season in the NFL as a full time running back.
