The Reason You Usually Don't Take RBs too High

Unread postby peeker643 » Wed Apr 04, 2012 8:44 am

Guys like this, like Cyrus Gray from A&M. http://bit.ly/H8oLPZ

Not elite, but a guy who will go to a team and can emerge as an every down, effective, productive, really good back.

Back to back 1,000 yard seasons, ran a 4.41 40-yd dash, catches the ball, etc. A guy like this will often eclipse the career of a guy like Martin or Miller or Wilson, etc.

I don't think the Browns will take a back other than Richardson early because Richardson is elite, this guy isn't. But my fear is they pass on a gifted back because they're still unwilling to get beyond Hardesty.

Or maybe they should give Hardesty one last year. Just a lot of talent to pass up if they do.

Because I like doing things like that.

Warriors come out to playay
Browns are an irrelevant and comical organization
