If both come out, looks like they may, where do you see them going and which runner will be more successful in the NFL.

I like Knowshon because I think he has more pure talent and will end up in a much better situation if he declares - he probably would fall out of the top 15.

It depends on situation. But if you stuck them on the same team, I think Beanie would do better as a whole.

If I was building a team I would take Knowshon. I know I'm in the minority, but I've always liked him a little better then Chris Wells.

I agree with you, however, if Wells runs in the 4.4s I will change my stance.

I think they are both a bit overrated and wont have great careers, but if I had to choose one Id take Moreno

Beanie has the ability to the Raven Jamal Lewis. Knowshon will probably be an above average nfl back with pretty good size, speed, and vision. I just think Beanie brings more to the table with size, strengh, and very deceptive speed. However, Beanie will have a shorter career due to his violent style of running.

Guys like Knoshown come around all the time. I see him as a late 1st-early 2nd type guy. but Beanie is a freak. He is a man child with great size (6'1 240) and speed (remember TD in the NC vs. LSU). He has the ability to carry the load and is truly a complete back. Knoshown has a good burst and runs hard but physically no RB can compete with Beanie.

I chose Beanie even though his injury problems are fresh in my mind.

I can't believe how many people are down on Beanie Wells from a talent standpoint.

I can see being concerned about injuries. But this guy's size, speed combo is amazing.

He also has quick feet in space.

He also has quick feet in space.He is best pure runner but I like Moreno more because he is a better recieiver and pass protector.

That's my thinking. Guys with Knowshon's skillset are a dime a dozen in the NFL, though most of them are a little bigger. Not to say Knowshon won't be a fantastic NFL player, but Beanie has the skills and tools to be a special back. I always like runningbacks who can wear down a defense too with their power and truck over defenders at the goal line. And there is no stiffarm like the [insert one of its many nicknames here].

I voted for Moreno mostly because I think he is going to have a longer career. I think if healthy, Beanie has higher upside, but he does not seem like he is the type to play hurt.
