I have to disagree, the way Chicago's offense is I can see Benson leading the team in receptions as well as rushing.Fins 34 said:Benson may rush for more yds, but Brown will have more combined yardage.
fin-atic said:Guys I am excited about Brown. I am sceptical, but I am hoping I am wrong. I have some real concerns about the guy and I am on record as saying I thought Benson was the better choice. So I have to say Benson will have more yards.
But I am hoping for the best!

Saban, your LSU boy just got OWNED.
Notice How Ronnie was the slot receiver while Caddy was the Tailback
He is so versatile, you can line him up wherever u want...RB,FB,WR...etc.
And the Power of a BullDozer!!!

Look at the last 5 years of the NFL draft.Since the 2000 DRAFT only 2 RB's have been taken in the Top Ten:
Jamal Lewis at #7
and Ladainian Tomlinson at # 5
Look at the numbers they put up in their first year:
In 2000 Jamal Lewis started ONLY13 of 16 games.
309 Att. 1364 Yd. 4.4 Avg 6 TD
He caught 27 passes for 296 Yd. with a 11.0 Avg. and 0 TD
IN 2001 Ladainian Tomlinson started all 16 games.
339 Att 1236 Yd. 3.6 Avg and 10 TD.
He caught 59 passes for 367 Yd. with a 6.2 Avg and 0 TD
Keep in mind he did have a few nagging injuries that year.
These are pretty hefty STATS...Is this going to be the bar we have set for the 3 Rookie RB's ????
Those 2 guys were BEASTS in college and they are BEASTS now in the pros !!
I believe Ronnie Brown can give us a Ladainian Tomlinson type Rookie Year:
1200 Yds. Rushing with 7 TD's and about 40-60 catches for 450 Yards and 2 TD's.......9 TOTAL TD'S
Bucs coach Jon Gruden said Auburn running back Ronnie Brown stunned him at last month's scouting combine by "displaying the best hands of any prospect, including wide receivers."
"You talk about unselfish, I mean, most of the time, running backs say, 'Hey, I'm the man, give me the ball,' " said Lovie Smith, the Chicago Bears coach. "You got Ronnie Brown lining up as a fullback. How many great tailbacks line up as a fullback? He's also on the punt team. You talk to both of them, they want to give the other guy a lot of credit."
"All three of these players have huge upsides or they would not be here. I think what you see with Cedric Benson and Carnell Williams right now is pretty much what you will see forever. That is not a bad thing, said Dennis Green. "I just think that they have hit their near-maximum capability and you know what type of running back you have with them. [Ronnie Brown] is on par with both, but he has the potential to be great at ALL aspects of the game. He has better hands and blocking desire than the other two backsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦and I think this is what sets him apart from Benson and Williams."
Jack Del Rio
"Does it all. Can catch the ball. An outstanding receiver and route runner. Big, strong, physical, fast. I'm a little leery of the fact that he doesn't have a lot of playing time . . . but when he did he was very productive. He will be a big-time back in the NFL. He's a stud."
"Cadillac's more of a slashing runner, a guy that can make you miss," said Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan. "Ronnie's more versatile from the fact that he can play fullback and wide receiver (as he did at Auburn). But they're both great backs."
"Excellent blend of size, hands ,speed, and pound for pound, one of the toughest backs in the last five NFL drafts," Mora said.
"Ronnie's got the best hands of any player I've ever coached or been around," Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville said. "I recruited and coached Rudi Johnson and Deuce McAllister and this guy's got more athletic ability than both of them."
Looks as if Lovie and Gruden really wanted RONNIE BROWN as their RB.....thank god we took him from them!!!
"We thought he had the best speed, the best hands, and also the most power of any player we could pick at his position, or just about any other position," Saban said.
