I think people underestimate brandon jacobs speed. He can get outside in a hurry.

Combine results from nfl.com
He runs 4.54, lets compare that to the other 3 backs.

Cedric Benson runs a 4.56 - had to use pro day results since he didnt run at combine, so he would prob be more at combine.
Caddilac Williams runs a 4.5
Ronnie Brown runs a 4.43
Now, hes faster then Cedric Benson and not far off from Cadilac whos what, 40 pounds less?

Brandon Jacobs is also working with Tiki's trainer, who Tiki used the year before he broke out for 1500 yards and the past 3 years.

Lets make this thread again 9 months from now.

EXACTLY MY POINT. For now he is as established as Marcell Shipp.

Who is? Jacobs?

Bad comparison. Shipp has been in the league and did not show the promise that Jacobs has early in his career. A better comparison would be to say that he is as established as Cedric Benson.

Meh. Benson was a top 5 pick for a reason.

I was being facetious.

Give me Cedric ANYDAY OF THE WEEK. Don't get me started I'll be writing 5 page essays reasoning why Cedric is BETTEr, has more PROMISE.

They are similar right now in how established they are right now. THATS IT

I was just using your own words to help you realize that the Marcel Shipp comment was a little much.

For the record, I like Benson the most out of that class.

Went with Ronnie, I think he needs an offensive line though. He ran for about 6 ypc behind Carey and then on the left side like under 3 ypc. Shows how poor our left side of the offensive line was last year. Also add in that we have no pass attack threat as well.

If miami can get a good left tackle and left guard Ronnie should have a break out year. (big if it seems though)

i honestly cant believe this is still going on

of course miami fans willl vote for Ronnie- i honestly think he's the best RIGHT NOW
benson and jacobs havent proved anything in the NFL, both have been backups both years in the league, and both have a shot to prove themselves this year.

Giants fans, we know jacobs isnt JUST a short yardage back, and Bears fans, yea we know Benson was a top 5 pick, but so was Ryan Leaf. Wait till these guys have a chance to start at least one year

im not sure any of the 4 will have huge careers, Benson, Caddy, and Brown have all had injuries that held them out games in their first two years. So how can any team count on them to be there?

Methinks the better poll would be:

Who is the biggest homer on NFLDC

a. TNewFan41
b. GiantRutgersFan
c. the field

At least that one would be up for debate.

Jacobs didn't have injuries, he had Tiki Barber syndrome. Cadillac played 14 games in both seasons so it's not like they were serious injuries.

I never said he was a breakaway runner, I said he's not as slow as people think. It doesn't matter if he scares you; he scares the other defense.

Now I think Ronnie Brown is the best, which might change by the end of next season, but I think a lot of people are underrating Brandon Jacobs.
