Just think about this: This has to be the first time that a backup RB in college becomes a top 5 pick in the draft.

Ronnie Brown has madd skills dont get me wrong. But its kind of weird that he was a backup in college and now he is a top 5 pick.


Any other times that a player was a backup in college and became a top pick in the draft?

It's not like he was a true second stringer...he and Caddy were more like 1 and 1A and both will be very good NFL backs.

Not only that he was the starter before Caddillac but wen't down with a injury and din't get his full job back because they shared duties. But is the more complete back out of the two but Caddillac has better vision and elusiveness.

Yes Ronnie was at AUB first. He was a 5th year senior. I can't remember who started his freshman year though. Might have been Rudi Johnson.

And he's definitely going top 5 because? He won't fall far but he realistically can fall out of the top 5.

Hey if you are going to talk, Know what you're talking about find the stats buddy he was the starter before Caddilac was. Don't come in these forums guessing and saying you know. You should join a NHL forum because they're taking the year off, so you can have time learn about hockey and try to make sense in there forum.[/quote]

There is a reason Carnell Williams started....

he was the better back, Brown went from 3rd rated RB to 1st after a workout....

that shows you how obsessed people are with numbers

Watching both. Both can dominate games, but Carnell is still the better back

I think Cadillac's the better back, but Brown will go first.

I've been wondering...
How much does the name "Cadillac" factor into a team's draft strategy? Just think of the marketing of Williams once he's in the NFL.
Any thoughts?
