  • Which Pac-10 Running Back?

    Which recent top Pac-10 running back would you want now?

    Reggie Bush (rnd 1, #2 overall)
    Maurice Drew (rnd 2, #60)
    Steven Jackson (rnd 1, #24)
    Marshawn Lynch (rnd 1, #12)

    And why?

    For me its Steven Jackson, with Marshawn coming in second... Jackson is already a great all around back (over 1500 yrds rushing and 90 total catches.) But I just have a good feeling about how Marshawns running style in the NFL.

    Drew, actually comes in third for me I don't think I have ever seen anyone his size run so hard, it's just plain freakish. If he had Jackson or Drews size this wouldn't even be a contest. Although Bush definitely proved any doubters wrong, I just don't see him ever being the type of complete inside-outside back that Jackson is or Lynch can be.

    Right now, I'd have to say Jackson, Drew, Bush, Lynch in that order if I'm looking for a primary ballcarrier. That could change drastically over the next couple of seasons though.


    The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

    If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

        Get the hell out of here. You would actually take Reggie Bush last of the 4? That's a joke.

        1. Steven Jackson (Inside, outside, catch the ball, whatever you want #2 RB in the NFL right now)
        2. Reggie Bush (Needs to work on the inside running, but he can catch the ball very well both as RB and a slot receiver, great outside runner, unreal agility, and is a big reason why guys like Colston and McAllister had great years last year, returns punts/kicks)
        3a. Drew (Very powerful runner for a little guy, better than Bush inside, but not quite as explosive)
        3b. Lynch (Very versatile back. I like him a lot)

        All four of these guys are or can be GREAT running backs. I really love their versatility as they're all very capable receivers.

              I'd still want Reggie Bush, he's an absolute freak. I still think with a year or two more to get used to the NFL he will be the best in the league. He has the ability to do everything you need a RB to do in the NFL and to do it well. He is also the fastest man on the field for most of his games.

                I'll say Marshawn and Jackson will be the best running backs of this group.While Bush will be the best weapon.MJD is great but I dont see him in the same category as the other three.

                      1. Steven Jackson: Very tough runner. Has great hands. Lacks top end speed, but top end speed is overrated.

                      2. Reggie Bush: I like his versitality ALOT. He is a perfect weapon, that can create so many mismatches. He is terrible in running up the middle, but otherwise he creates a mismatch easily. If he can adapt to the NFL soon, he is going to be great.

                      3. MJD: Very close with Bush. He is basically what Bush is, except with power, and less speed, quickness, and versitality. Though he is worse than Bush in those areas, he is up there with the best in those categories. Very deceptive quick and powerful. If only Keak were here during his late season surge.

                      4. Marshawn Lynch: I really like him as a player. I felt like he was underrated going into the draft...he is a great runner with speed and power and has natural hands. Bills will have a very good player for a very long time.

                        From a statistical perspective no, jackson blows everyone out of the water. But as far as skill sets and capabilities I think all of the backs (speculation for Lynch) are on a very close level.

                        Everyone one of them is a great weapon no matter how you slice it, I don't think Jackson is that far ahead of any of those pros. But he does bruise you and wear you down which is the kind of smash mouth football I like to see.

                          4. bush

                          bush is useless as a rb, so he automatically gets last place...if you would have been asking about slot receivers, it would be a different story...

                            Useless after one season? Tough crowd.

                              So if he lined up at runningback and split out and caught 80-90 passes, he is still useless?

                              Those receptions came from him being a mismatch on LBs or S in the passing game. Whether you like it or not, catching passes is also something a RB does.
