      No Tim Hightower love :(

      Still it's a ridiculous amount of RB talent. Hopefully McFadden can turn it on over the next few years.

        Imagine if Darren McFadden was living up to his potential, then this class would be incredible.

            Mr. Sticksforlegs? He could have bombed anywhere. But being in Oakland didn't help.

                  Eh Ryan Williams and Quizz are the only guys I can see being all pro's from that list and Quizz has size issues to deal with. Ingram is the only other guy outside of those two who has potential star power. The rest I see more as situational backs. Guys like Saine, Royster Bradford, and Hunter are all great college players but really nothing stands out about them to separate them from all of the other backs trying to find work in the league.

                    I was thinking the other day, what could RUN DMC do if he got drafted by the Jets and not the Raiders.

                      I can't quote you 100%, but I am sure you said you loved Royster and thought he was a really good back that will do well in the NFL.

                        I think he has incredible patience and vision. I think he has WR hands and is very smart. Still his lack of speed and overwhelming strength prevents him from being anything special. I think he could definitely be a serviceable starter in the NFL but nothing more. Much of my hype for him was as a Heisman candidate though.

                          It was a rediculous draft class, im sooo glad we landed Rashard when we did. And i can still remember when everyone laughed at Tennessee for drafting CJ as a major reach...wheres all the haters now? :p

                            It turned out to be a smart decision, but at the time, it was still considered a reach. We will never know, due to our lack of time machine, but it's possible that he would have lasted to their pick in the 2nd round.

                            I remember a lot of people saying he could get picked up anywhere in the 2nd round, possibly early 3rd round.

                            The titans are definitely glad now that they didn't risk it then, but you just never know what could have happened had they not picked him there.

                            Like I said, still an incredibly smart move, and it just goes to show that you always draft the player that is going to give your specific team more wins, Instead of picking players based on their "draft value".

                              I wouldnt have it any other way. I got the back I wanted in Felix and now it's time to finally hand him the reigns. I honestly believe if Felix was playing on the Titans, he'd be one of the best backs in the league right now. And this is absolutely nothing to do w/ CJ, I'm just saying he would have at least been given the opportunity there already. The guy has been every bit as explosive as CJ, but in a much smaller role. Sadly, Dallas has been holding him back but, that should change next year.

                              I remember when a lot of guys thought Felix was too small. Well he's probably about a solid 220 now, so no worries there. He's freaking huge now. haha.

                              As for the rest of the guys, it is mighty impressive. Although, Kevin Smith, Matt Forte, and Steve Slaton all looked rather pedestrian this year.
