Ronnie Brown vs. Chiefs

What do you guys think about Ronnie Brown? Do you like his style? Were you impressed with him or no? Do you think he will be a great and successful back in the future or just be average? If you have negative thoughts, thats ok too. I just want your guys opinion...

I ask this question to every team's board after we play them. I am a big fan of Ronnie and have loved this kid for a while way before the combine. So what did you guys think?

I thought he looked okay, other then the long TD I don't remember being overly impressed. But other then two long runs this year our run D has slowed everyone up a bit. Plus Wesley is great at missing tackles, both the long TD's last night were because he can't seem to finish his tackles.

It normally take a RB a while to prove that he is going to be a long term stud. But he did mae some good runs on tough yards.

I think he is a solid back. He is big and fast and I thought he was better than Cadillac at Auburn.

Well, it sucked he only had 8 FREAKIN CARRIES!! I dont understand why we dont give him the rock more. 95 yards on only 8 carries is pretty freakin sweet.

I'm watching the game right now on nfl.com (listened to it last night). He looks strong and decisive in his cuts. And he was running at about a 5 YPC clip if you take out the long TD. Much better than Sticky Ricky, IMO. It looked like he was unsure about his cuts and danced too much in the backfield.

Well, you can't give the ball to the RB more when you can't get first down's. Still the 4 yards an average on the other 7 carries is decent.

Do you think he was worth the #2 overall? or do you think there was a better player we should have picked?

No. Brown was the best position for Miami, since Miami didn't have any solid RB's to begin with, while Ricky was out, smoking some weed.

I honestly don't think Alex Smith is really worthy of a top pick IMHO. Was thinking C. Williams or Brown could had a better choice there.

At least you didn't draft C. Benson. The Bears can't even get the guy signed on time, and Benson is just messed up in the head.

In Miami's position it was the best pick for them.

Now dump Ricky.

Ronnie Brown is a good tailback. He was the best available in the draft. People expect too much from running backs when 80% of their success is dependent on their offense lines which the Dolphins do not have. Nothing pisses me off more then hearing crap like "what's wrong with _____....why isn't he running ?" Nevermind the defense is 5 yards in the backfield every play. I can understand that when you're talking about a guy like Ron Dayne who obviously doesn't have what it takes...but we do know Ricky Williams has what it takes he's led the NFL in rushing....he's not running any better then Ronnie right now so that oughta tell you something......Cadillac is not any better then Ronnie Brown despite his better stats.

No. He was the best RB available but IMO no tailback is worth a #2 pick simply because, due to the short shelf life and injury rate at the tailback position, the position itself isn't worth the money of a #2 pick. Better to go the Shanahan route and build an offensive "system" then just plug and play with minimum wage runners. You could also have easily picked up an Edgerrin James and several others for less then half that price tag. Spend your money on positions that call for it.

The money spent on unproven rookies is out of line with their worth in the first round. This will probable be addressed in the next collective bargaining. But 'stuck' with the 2nd pick and an inflated value Ronnie Brown was a solid pick. I didn't get to see if he had recieving skills. That would help in evaluating his talent.

Ronnie was the clear-cut #2 pick IMO. He'll be a very good, if not great, one.
