was drafted. Is this a shock to anyone other than me?

2009: 101 att. for 460 yds, 3 TDs
2011: 3 att. for 16 yds, 0 TDs

I understand that he was dominant in HS, but he literally did next to nothing in college.

Less wear and tear than any runningback in the draft

johnathan gray who is going to texas this year had more carries in last year than BB had in his life

He was worthless in college, but I'm not surprised he was drafted. He has good size and speed. Plus he has very few carries on his legs. Brown has all the physical tools you want in a runner so if he gets his head straight, he could turn into a very good player. As a seventh round pick, there is virtually no risk but there is potential for a great reward.

At that point in the draft, there's really nothing wrong with buying a lottery ticket. He tested fairly well in spite of basically being out of the game since 2009. If you don't get anything out of him, you wasted a 7th round pick. The guys who were on the board in that area would be on the fringe of making the roster(at best) anyway. The potential reward you get far outweighs the risk you take on.


...not that it will matter. He doesn't seem to really care all that much about football. Chris Polk will likely beat him out for a roster spot assuming his body doesn't fall apart.

Can't believe the thread title was changed either. Everyone knows he's TBB

Sounds like the Eagles wanted him bad as a UDFA but they didn't want to get caught in a bidding war so they used their last pick on him.

I don't know why more teams don't take guys like this in the Seventh Round? People are saying the Eagles are stupid for taking him and the Bengals for taking Vontaze Burfict in UDFA but it's very low Risk high Reward because if these guys fail then who cares you got them in the Seventh Round and more then likely most of the other Seventh Round picks failed anyways but if these guys really get Committed and try to become good they have the Potential to be a starter and that is worth a Flyer in the Seventh Round.

Worth a shot. Not surprised he was drafted in the least. Would have been happy if the Pats or Chiefs decided to bring him in for training camp trial to see if they could get anything out of him.

I agree completely. It's similar to people being surprised Kellen Moore wasn't drafted. 95% of your 7th round picks don't pan out, so you might as well take the guy with the highest potential reward instead of a guy like Moore who will likely be a decent number 3 QB but never anything more.

He had some nice runs his freshman year, although I wasn't blown away like I was hoping to be. He has the measurables. Not really surprised he was drafted late.

Yes entirely surprised, generally stupid people with no production dont get drafted

I remember watching him play Western Kentucky and Memphis his Freshman year. He looked like a beast. He's got ideal size, breakaway speed, decent hands, and some pretty good vision. He's just all kinds of goofy in the head. He's kind of a perfect way to spend your seventh rounder, just like Dennard to the Pats.

That being said, I fully expect Chris Polk to beat him out.

Not surprised at all, I'd been having him as the titans 7th round selection for months. He's got all the potential in the world, to lock him up in the 7th to avoid him signing with the Chiefs/Titans is a pretty good move in my opinion

This seems like the general consensus of Eagles fans. Reid has just gone on record saying he thought he used Shady too much last year, but didn't focus on RB until Brown and Polk, so if he really feels that way, one of these two will get an opportunity to get some touches.

Can't wait to see what he's got. I was pumped with the pick.

Hopefully he does not quit like Noel Devine.

I'd honestly rather Chris Polk stay with the team than Brown.

I'm sure all the UT/Titans fans would love that, haha.

I think Polk would be a good addition. The guy was a great college running back and would fit into what we do very well in Philly. The injury concerns really must have scared off some teams because the guy was one helluva talent.

Bryce's lady friends still in Tennessee, and he came back to Tennessee after leaving K-State. Seems like a perfect fit
