Reggie BushLenDale WhiteDeAngelo WilliamsLaurence MaroneyDerek HaganSantonio HolmesSinorice MossJoseph AddaiThat's a start anyway...

 
I'm glad someone mentioned Addai. He is the type of back who is going to have a much better pro career than college career. He was in a running back by committee at LSU, with about 5 other running backs, but he should he could run between the tackles, catch the ball well, and step up and block in pass protection. He is going to be an unbelievable value pick.

 
I'm glad someone mentioned Addai.
:thumbup: Addai hasn't been ignored around here. I listed him with a group I consider equal in potential to Maroney. Several others have had him ranked just after the more hyped RBs. He's been very limited by RBBC and injury during his college career, creating realistic durability concerns. The only other knock on him is that he has limited agility. He's a north south guy without terrific cutback ability. In this regard I'd compare him to Tatum Bell, because like Bell, he has great speed. His 40 might be very close to Reggie Bush, and he'll be one of the three or four fastest RBs in the draft. Unlike Bell, he is already an excellent blocker and receiver. He's a natural leader and top intangible type with a frame that should easily carry 225 in a couple years. I would much much rather take Addai late in the second than Maroney in the middle of the 1st. Either could be great, either could struggle, and I think Addai is probably a little better prepared for the NFL. Definitely a solid value as he is currently projected.

Maybe both of you are correct, but my Gawd does a RB look AWFUL wearing #10. :P
