The Question Marks
I like these guys, and where they’re being picked, they’re certainly alluring, but there’s just something about them that is making me look past them.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis – The Lawfirm is probably going to post similar numbers, if not better, than Benson did last season with the Bengals. Yes, that’s a good thing… for a No. 3 RB. At most, he’s a No. 2 if you’re pairing him with an Upton.
Stevan Ridley – The prediction on Ridley is that if Green-Ellis notched 10 TD for the Patriots then Ridley should be in line for that, too. I don’t buy that at all. For starters, Rob Gronkowski exists, but the Pats also added Brandon Lloyd and I think Aaron Hernandez is going to be a much bigger role player. I like Ridley as a No. 3, but I’d have to get him at a late pick to be happy about it.
Reggie Bush – He said he wants to be the NFL’s top rusher, and most people laughed. And they should laugh, because I’d say with 98.3% certainty as a Dolphins fan that he won’t. But if you’re staring at his name and you need a No. 3, aren’t you going to at least consider it?
Rashad Jennings – He’s the starter in Jacksonville for Week 1. That’s his chance to shine. Sure, it’s the Jaguars, but Jennings has shown his ability to put up numbers in the past.
