I don't think anyone is disputing the fact that Ronnie Brown could be the pick at #2rickeyrunsover said:I agree that we wont run a conservative offense, but Ronnie Brown is a playmaker plain and simple. He is the ultimate playmaker, the best receiver at his position, power and speed. Sorry to burst the bubble, but it is entirely possible Brown is teh pick.
I agree... but there are times when I think that Saban would prefer a back like Cadillac. He has elusiveness and excellent vision.ghost of marino said:I don't think anyone is disputing the fact that Ronnie Brown could be the pick at #2
We're just arguing that it won't be because he'd fit into a Wanny-style ball control offense...if he's the pick at #2, it'll be because of his versatility.
I'm personally not a huge fan of Ronnie Brown. I would much rather we take Caddy or Benson, and hopefully we can get one of them by moving down some.finsnchips said:I agree... but there are times when I think that Saban would prefer a back like Cadillac. He has elusiveness and excellent vision.
I dunno, we'll see come draft day.
Williams is not a scat back.KLSU said:I can tell you from experience with Saban that he likes a bruising running back more than a scat back. If he picks a running back in the first round I would bet almost anything he would pick Brown over Williams. He made comments over the years at LSU about having big bruising backs like Ally Broussard and Labrandon Toefield. He compliments them with lighter faster backs in certian situations but mostly the running backs with size play more.
Out of those 2...Brown without a doubt. In fact Brown blocked for Williams (at the FB position) quite often. He's very good at picking up blitzes and reading defenses.pilotfish said:Question: Anybody have a comment on which RB, Brown or Williams, is a better blocker? Seems to me that could be very important...
