    well i have been i miami fan ever since i was born and and i was so glad when we got ricky but after what he did i thought we would never get a RB like him agien but i am wrong i mean i like both ronnie and cedric but i will be honest with you i am a big cedric benson fan and i hope we get him he has tramendus strength and is a good down hill runner but i have to face it that ronnie is better he has the speed to break the long one and has the power to break that one tackle when we need it and he has the vision and he has excielent hands. So ill be man enough to say that i hope we get cedric but i want whats best for the team and ronnie is so please tell me what you think thanx.

    The Ronnie Brown versus Cedric Benson thread has been rehashed a few times...the bottom line is Ronnie is much faster, and there are no head case or baggage issues with him. I think Benson will make a fine NFL back, but Ronnie Brown has a lot more potential.

    I would rather Caddy anywhere in the draft, although I hope that we trade down to 7,11 or 12 spots in the draft and pick up whoever is left over out of the big 3 backs.

    Deja-vu

    In a strange a parallel universe the Dolphins draft the stud runner out of Texas. He breaks 1600+ yards his rookie year, then the following season gets busted for doing drugs. that would ironic

    Either one is good, Caddy's not though

    :lol:

    *looks at quote in sig*

    haha, naa but i personally think benson will have a better career than brown... when a players stock rises more off the field than on the field it puts up a flag in my eyes... but brown as that potential to be a great back, but benson already is... i'll take either but i prefer benson

    I agree, If we stay at #2 we will take Brown over Benson and if we trade down a bit then Caddy should still be around at maybe #10 overall

    I would agree, but Brown's stock has been very high all along. Probably, well lets just say a little behind Benson. Brown made up the most ground in his bowl game, while Benson's stock slid from his game. On the field where it mattered most. :)

    I really think that Brown's stock has only rose a little from the combine.

    I do agree with you but with the exact opposite reason. To me it has been Benson who seperated himself from the other two. Lowering his stock more than anyone raised theirs. It was off the field, and like you I don't buy into that. He can run the ball, no doubt.

    I like Brown, with Benson not far behind, and the Caddy, well, I'm not a great fan of 200 pound Rb's so even though I'd take him, he would be my third choice.

    Caddy is not going to be 217 pounds playing in Miami. Not with this humidity. He has always played at or around 200.

    Edge has always been right around 215-220, while Caddy has always played at right around 200. Put him in two a days in the heat and humidity of Miami, and he's going to lose a large part of his body fat. He gained 15 pounds right after his bowl game, and as it was once suggested in another thread, that could have been water weight, well, he sure aint keeping that on him down here.
    He could add some muscle mass to counter some fat loss, but that's going to be hard for him, and it could actually slow some people down a tad when and if they add muscle too fast. I would think that if he, or if the Dolphins want him to gain some weight, it won't be too much, not in the first year anyway.

    I saw Caddy in shorts and a T, and his legs are very thin, especially below the knees. That's what worries me the most about him. He already has a slight history of injuries, and now he's coming to the place where the hits get bigger. I like him as a runner, but I don't know if he can handle the hits for 16 games.

    I'd still be more than happy with the Caddy if they pick him. He can tote the rock. I still would take Brown 1st, or Benson 2nd, Caddy 3rd....

    I'm all for Brown, think his potential is huge. This is the 1000th thread on this. I for one hope we trade down and acquire plenty more picks and if we do trade down & take another back later then we get the most value for that #2 pick IMO.

    1000th? More like 5000th !!! Of course I've put in way more than 2 cents worth of replies.. :D

    As for trading down, I'm all for that, if Saban's price is met. There are quite a lot of worthy Rb's out there. MBIII, Arrington, and Morency....

    Ronnie Brown. Why, because I think he is the right fit. Everyone has their opinion and that is mine.

    I don't watch college football and I don't know much about either of them but from what I've heard I think we should take ronnie brown.

    Hopefully we take the one that we'll be able to look back on in 10 or 12 years fron now and say "Wow! what an amazing RB we had here in Miami"

    We need to stop talking about drafting a running back because everyone always brings up the same facts and about 60 percent of you want ronnie brown and the other 40 percent is split on williams and benson

    I like H2 better because he has great speed and strenght, and no durability or character issues. I think the durability issues are underrated for RB, just ask Eddie George.

    Ronnie Brown has a better skill set for the pro game, and if we stay at number two and are determined to take a RB, then Ronnie is the man. There are a lot of buts in there tho, hmmm, could be interesting.

    :shakeno: No he said Benson, While Ronnie has more weight, that doen't matter that much when Benson likes to plow over the first man who tries to tackle him.

    Ronnie Brown is a very good back, but Benson is better.

    I know he said Benson. I mearly corrected him with my opinion of who is the bruiser... :shakeno:

    There is a video clip of Ronnie Brown around here somewhere. I suggest you go take a look at it and get back to me on the plow people over part.

    I'm not a expert on who is better, but I do know what I like.

    How many times is this RB discussion going to be rehashed? I am a UM fan and honestly haven't seen enough of these 3 top RB's to make an assessment. Therefore, if we take a RB I will have to rely on the premise that the Saban and co. made the correct decision.

    The draft is all there is to talk about right now, and one of Miami's greatest needs is Rb, at least that's what a lot of us fans think.

    This is one of the few times in many years that Miami could be drafting an instant star player. Something exciting for now, and on into the futue. Being it's the offseason, and otherwise quite boring, I expect the drums will most likely beat the same few beats ...over and over.

    Ok iv'e seen the video, and your'e right he plows people over pretty good. So it's a coin toss between them. The thing is Benson didn't have as good a line to work with as Brown did. Who knows????:confused:

    I say trade the draft picks for proven players, It probably a dumb idea, but I think the Seahawks would trade Shaun alexander for a couple of high draft picks. I don't know if we'd have the cap for him though
