Yea. I'm a huge fan of DeMarco Murray's ability. Haven't watched James, but I'm assuming he's small but fast as hell.

I can't think of a draft eligible RB with the power/speed combination like Stewart.

No, J-Stew's don't grow on trees.

Allen Bradford may be the closest in this draft.

Isn't nearly as powerful, nor as quick, as Stewart. So no.

But I thought Trent was the next AD/AP though

Ricky Williams was the best comparison I saw for him. He may be the best RB prospect since AD when he comes out, though.

Trent is big and fast, but I don't understand the love affair he receives on this site. I mean he's not ridiculous big and fast (he's maybe a 4.45 guy) and he's not that elusive in the hole, and lacks vision at this point in his career. He's certainly talented, but I don't think he's near the freak everyone is making him out to be, and certainly not "tha best rb prospectzzz", don't forget AD ran for 2000 yards his freshmen year.

With that said, he's probably the closest thing in college to Jonathan Stewart.

AD also wasn't sharing the backfield with Hiesman hopeful Mark Ingram

I don't think he's like Stewart, but if you're interested in big backs, my favorite is John Clay. Dude is a man among boys.

Don't forget Daniel Thomas.

But OU had other good RB's and he was sharing the backfield with a Heisman winning QB. Trent has looked pretty good and he's from my hometown so I'm a fan of his. But I just don't see the elite prospect stuff everyone claims.

I like Thomas a lot. 225 with thick thighs, great, low hips and nice vision. Arm tackles never bring that guy down.

Jonathan Stewart type specimens only come by once every couple of years. As for an undrafted sleeper look out for Keith Payne. Probably only has 4.6's type speed but he's 6-3" 255 pounds. A true HB and natural runner he's no FB despite what his size may indicate. Despite being a load to take down has has lots of shakes and open field moves. His cuts could be cleaner though. Had 16 carries 114 yards, and 4 TD's against Richmond. 12 carries 57 yards and a TD vs USC. Watching Snelling tear things up when given the opportunity I believe Payne can make it in the league. Keep a look out for him. UVA quietly has 2 great backs in him and the shifty Perry Jones. But Payne is a physical freak who is focused again.

I am in the minority, but the reason I had stewart as a top three player that year is because of one reason... he has unmatched balance, and when you compare that with his amazing vision, size, and fairly decent speed, he is very dangerous

So in fantasy football this week, I'm debating between starting J. Stewart or Marshawn Lynch. Thoughts on who I should give the starting nod to?
