Tatum Bell had speed but didn't know how to run with a protected style. When you watch runners like Terrell Davis, Marcus Allen, Preist Holmes, they almost always never took direct hits. They were so good at adjusting the body lean at that last moment before contact. Guys like Mendenhall and Tatum Bell, they don't adjust at contact moment. That's why they're always dinged up. Speed is great, we all know that. But I think a beefed up track star who doesn't know how to break tackles, who always wants to either out race or juke, won't be nearly as productive as that back who has better feel for using blocking and breaking tackles and avoiding the big hits. Mendenhal is nothing more then a Tatum Bell clone. Not to mention, Mendenhal is not really all that good at blitz pick up. And as you mentioned, not the best ball security either. I think too many guys are too focused on speed. Terrell Davis was by no means a blazer and everybody here knows the kind of production he provided. I can live with some not liking Greene but to suggest Mendenhall is better is laughable at best.

Boom. Minds blown.

Rex Burkhead will end up being one of the top 5 if not not top 3 backs to come out of this draft. If he hadn't been hurt (and then came back too early) for most of his senior year he would be a first day pick. As it is, someone will get a steal late in the draft.

Alfred Williams is a dumbass and D-Mac is still in the early stages of learning football. They like to yell and have fun. That's it.

Most days Big Al and Darren are garbage radio. There is no substance, all those two do is argue semantics. You have to love Big Al because of his time as a Bronco but dmac is a weasel.

Yeah, the amount of **** Darren talks to callers I'm really surprised no one has ever waited for him out in the parking lot of the station.

Based on some of the things he says, I am 100% convinced D Mac is an OM member.

Dead serious.

The Denver Broncos needed TD to get to the SB. At this point, in the pre-draft time period, TD wasn't even on the radar. No one was talking about him in the terms of Lacy is this year. I put no credibility to the evaluation that Lacy is the difference maker for any team. How many top drafted backs have elevated their team to the SB. Not many overall.

Now give me the OL from 97/98 and I will take a number of names at RB to the SB. In no way does this diminish the special back TD was. It isn't about being drafted high in the draft. It isn't about being the quickest or the biggest. TD wasn't either. Give me a guy with heart, vision and the ability to break tackles. Call him TD, Emmitt or Walter.

First day pick is first round. So no, he wouldn't have. And FWIW, no he probably won't be.

Ah yeah, forgot about the first round being early now. I meant first few rounds, and still stand by my prediction that he becomes one of the better backs to come out of this class.
