    I thought I read that he ran a 4.51.

    Regardless, watch his game tape. This guy isn't trying to run around the edge. He looks for contact and doesn't go down easily.

    If we really want an all-weather offense, this was the perfect pick.

    Even if he is a 4.6 back. Doesnt really matter much. He rarely goes down on first hit. So he makes up for it by simply powering for those yards he losses due to being not as quick.

    Plus as Ryan mentions, he has very good vision. And with our Line i think he will have some nice holes to run through.

    Yes, and Darren McFadden had ran under a 4.3, and he runs away from no one in the NFL.

    Every player can't be a burner,

    Every player can't be a home run hitter,

    Every player can't be a superstar.

    yes..some clocks had him slower...

    here's the thing about Greene, his running back instincts are iffy as he thinks to much rather than reactively hit the hole...now, he improved as the season progressed last season, his first as a starter and he doesn't have a lot of mileage on him...

    personally I think Andre Brown was a better fit but the fact is Brown's injury history is scaring teams...

    was he projected around where he was drafted?

    yeah, and Moreno ran 4.62


    neither guy looks slow in pads, running through opposing defenses.

    Silly comment. Darren Mcfadden after week two was never anywhere close to healthy.(bad case of turf toe) Watch how many players he runs awayn from this year.
