Duke Johnson RB Houston Texans in The Shark Pool (NFL Talk) Posted September 9, 2015 · Edited September 9, 2015 by Nash Let's not Imo, Crowell's reputation doesn't jive with his tape. I didn't see him flash a single plus attribute last year or this preseason. Therefore, I just don't see how he keeps the more explosive, more agile, more versatile Duke Johnson off the field.Let's not forget that Duke hasn't done a damn thing yet in the NFL. Not even in preseason. He has shown us that he is all-pro in ability to get injured. Not a good showing yet. So his resume at the NFL level is all hype so far. It's VERY risky to play him this week. I might do it, but that's just bc my other options are lackluster or just as risky. I won't be doing it confidently. Crowell is has a reputation for being a talented back. I don't know why everyone seems so down on him. This guy came in as an UDFA and seized the starting job. Not an easy task. I wouldn't be surprised to see Duke get 5-10 touches. That might just be enough for him to get 50-60 yards and maybe take one to the house. But he's just as likely to get re-injured. Who knows..none of us do. It will be fun finding out though! Beyond his freshman film (from 4 years ago!), Crowell hasn't flashed a damn thing, Imo. Duke, on the other hand, not only has impressive tape, but also generated a lot of buzz during camp via Browns insiders, coaches, etc.Look, I'm not stating that Crowell is gonna go away, as I do think it's likely that he will get a lot of the early down work, especially early on in the season. Instead, I'm stating that he's not likely to keep Duke off the field enough to meet the projections/ hype being thrown around by Soulfly and others. That is, Duke will get his too, if healthy.
