    I'm assuming you mean Deangelo Williams and LenDale White...

    IMO, Williams is the best pure back of the three, but Bush is more of an impact player...

    Deangelo Williams followed by Maroney. These two players have been doing great their entire career. Williams is like 3rd alltime in NCAA rushing yard and Maroney has had over 1000 each year, even though he split carries with Marion Barber III. Bush is a great all-round player, but as the question was best RB, those two have to be tops.

    In my opinion it has to be Lendell White.

    I realize I need to back up my opinion more...

    Reggie Bush in 2005...

    Winner of the Doak Walker Award

    Winner of the Walter Camp Award

    Winner of the Heismann Trophy

    ...given to the best player in College Football.

    Was third in the Nation with 1740 rushing yards, but had only 200 attempts. His average of 8.7 yards per carry topped the NCAA by several yards.

    Average TD run was over 33 yds in length.

    He is the best...

    I think DeAngelo Williams will be the best NFL back, followed by White... Bush is the mos tathletic though.

    I'm going Bush. I think he was the most well known offensive weapon in the NCAA last year, and alot of teams game planned for him accordingly. That's why it's amazing he was still able to dominate like he did. Not sure if anyone saw Barry Sanders on Jim Rome today, but when they showed clips of Sanders juking past defenders it seemed oddly reminiscent of Bush's college high lights to me.

    Right now, one must say DeAngelo Williams as you cannot give credit to blocking or a system. I saw him in the Motor City Bowl and I saw blocking that made the Texans' look good. He is a pure running back, balanced, and seemed to improve his biggest weakness, blocking, during the Senor Bowl.

    Do you know Eric Crouch? The Heisman goes to the player with the best year, not the best.

    hehe..last post was brilliant.

    Bush, by a mile.

    Lots of folks, 3-4 years from now, will be on these message boards and wonder why we EVER considered drafting Young. Mark my words.
