    There aren't any superstar RB's in this year's draft class but there are alot of good players that will be available in rounds 2-5. Why Shonn Greene is done as a Jet.

    You have to ask yourself how much is it the line in Zona. As far as run blocking they may be the worst line in the league. Williams 1st, Wells 1st, Stephens-Howling 7th, Alfonso Smith, and Chester Taylor. It is not like they have ignored RB like GB. Wells was explosive in college. In Zona he really gets enough ground to get a head of steam.

    and a back has to be able to catch the ball out of the backfield in this offense....Greene is a goner. Kniles Davis was a heisman favorite before he hurt his ankle.....Eddie Lacy and other backs sure looked like college superstars to me.....nfl has shown that you can draft a starting caliber back after the 2nd round....look at the kid from the redskins who tore it up this past season.

    Good points but I am very familiar with the backs in this years draft....i would rather draft one of them than an underacheiving injury prone running back.

    I'm big supporter of taking the BAP at all times. I cannot see a BAP in regards to a RB in rounds 1 through 3. JMO.

    I am very familiar as well and want nothing to do with any of them.
