    Best RB from 2004 draft?

    Looking back the 2004 draft had some talented RB. Who would you take?

    I said Jackson, he is the most complete runner of the bunch of them.

    I think people are unimpressed with Bell because he hasn't carried the load. He had his shot to be the guy this year and he blew it enough that an UDFA was named the starter.

    Bell hasn't proven he can carry the load which guys like Jackson have.
    You are aware that Mike Bell hasn't started a regular season game and Shanny just did that to motivate Tatum. Bell has carried the load all season.
    Tatum may been the starter but he ahs hardly carried the load. Mike Bell has taken about 1/3 of the carries.

    Have to go w/ Jackson. He has shown the most, but Willie Parker was a good one I saw. If Julius was healthy, and Kevin Jones had a consistant offense, I think it would be a lot closer

    people hating on julius...he hasnt even been able to stay healthy and sitll has more yards then all other backs that yr and you cant say he is running behind a great line because we all know thats not the case...he is very talented and we are seeing that this year with him staying healthy...but jackson is probably the best of the bunch but julius is no slack

    How is parker not a dual threat? He's almost as good Recieving as he is running. and He's getting more powerful and maintaining his 4.3 speed.
    Kevin Jones is on pace for huge receiving numbers for his position. Parker isn't, although he isn't Shaun Alexander either. Kevin Jones is nearly as productive on the ground, minus all the all-pro lineman the Steelers have.
    1? Alan Faneca. Maybe you could make a case for Marvel Smith...but hartings is too old, Simmons is garbage along with starks.
    Starks isn't that bad :?
    do you actually watch the steelers?

    9 sacks in 9 games, and against denver alone he gave up 7 hurries in the first half. He couldn't stop Dumervil, Burgess or anyone from walking into the backfield.
    He is a good run blocker. Saying the amount of sacks in a thread about RBs isn't a good argument.

    Perhaps because Detroit's run blocking has been horrendous for a while now and that hasn't exactly helped Kevin Jones. Jackson has the edge over Kevin Jones for now.
