If Miami gets their hands on a 2nd, I think Fason and Barber would be good 2nd round pickups.

No highlight vids that I'm aware of.

:shakeno: What the hell? How in the world does he remind you of Brian Westbrook. He has no similarity to him.

Marion Barber III Video

http://www.frales.pandorahost.com/

There's no video that's only of him, but if you check out "Thunder & Lightning" it's a highlight video of him and Laurence Maroney...Barber's #21. Also, I'm guessing you'll get to see a good deal of him in the Music City Bowl 2004 highlight reel. He ran for like 170 yards agains the #2 rushing defense from Alabama.

First of all they aren't the same height, second of all half the league's backs catch the ball well. Have you ever even seen Marion Barber play? He plays Shaun Alexander almost. :shakeno:

Strong, Fast, straight ahead runner with unbelievable balance, If you hit him real hard but dont wrap, he is gone.

It's not the size that matters. It's the running style, and from watching Barber I know for a fact that he doesn't play like Brian Westbrook. If anybody plays like Westbrook it's Sproles.

Westbrook is a shifty back who has unbelievable moves and is a home run receiving back.

Barber is a reliable receiving back, who runs very low almost in a similar fashion to Shaun Alexander.

I mean sure they have some small similarities, but you could say he reminds you of L.T. because he catches the ball well too and is hard to bring down. Big deal. They don't run like each other. You have to watch them to know them.
