  • 2009 Power Backs

    gents, and matt,

    who is on your 2009 radars as far as power backs? I am fascinated by bruising runners, and am wondering who i should start studying up on. here is a starter list.

    beanie wells, osu
    darrell mack, utah
    kyle bell, colorado state
    fui vakapuna, byu
    frank summers, unlv
    pj hill, wisconsin
    herb donaldson
    andre brown, nc state
    rodney ferguson
    conredge collins, pitt
    arian foster, tenn
    richard dickson, lsu

    would guys like brannan southerland or brock bolen be dual-purp FBs? do they run the ball well and with the characteristic mean streak?

    if you can't think of anybody new, what do you think about the guys on the list? other than beanie wells, we already know he's pretty much dominant. no need to waste another thread about that.

      Bulldog0123: Dont really see Keiland Williams as a power back. Anthony Dixon is a straight beast. I would know, he tore Kentucky a new one.

      James Davis anybody? He is a bruiser. And on your list other than Chris Wells, P.J. Hill is obvious but I think Andre Brown is one of the more talented power backs.

        Broderick Green.

        He will be better than LenDale White by the time his career is over.

        Ray Lewis has suffered enough, Commissioner Paul Tagliabue of the National Football League said in a conference call yesterday in explaining why he did not suspend the All-Pro linebacker who pleaded guilty to obstructing justice in a murder case.

        ''It's the courts who have the primary responsibility in this case,'' Tagliabue said. ''We're not a substitute for the courts.''

        ''The offense was a misdemeanor; he had no problems before that and hadn't violated league policies,'' Tagliabue said of Lewis's guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstructing justice in a deal with Atlanta prosecutors, who dropped murder charges against the Ravens star.

          Considering how bad LenDale White is doing right now, that's not saying much.

            We're talking COLLEGE FOOTBALL, and LenDale did just fine at SC.

              Yeah, I know. But still. If the comparisons to LenDale White still persist when he graduates, teams may shy away from him. The best thing for him is to talk to Tony Gonzalez about becoming a vegetarian, so we can't make fun of his cheeseburger addiction.

                Completely different body-type.

                Even when he was on top of the CFB world, LenDale was never a bench press warrior -- didn't do the bodysculpting thing because it was irrelevant (hence the "man boobs" jokes at the combine).

                He played the Rose Bowl at 257 and still managed to shred the Longhorn Defense at will (except on that last play).

                LenDale's main problem was self-discipline - like Leinart, Jarrett, etc., they were so much better than everyone else that they failed to realize they have to earn it all over again in the NFL.

                Broderick Green is pure muscle -- a completely different animal than LenDale.

                We are excited to see how he turns out when he gets/remains healthy.

                  I'm not saying he WILL be compared to White. I'm saying if he DOES, he's not going in the first two rounds.

                      USC's runningbacks are all talk right now. Joe McKnight still has to qualify.

                      Stafon Johnson is okay, but he hasn't distinguished himself right now.

                      I don't have much respect for hype. All these great USC runningbacks I've never heard of need to do something before you make an art gallery for them.
                      2014-2015 Kentucky Wildcats (38-1)

                      Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

                        i am looking forward to seeing kyle bell from colorado state. he's 6 2 230 and mean and white. 1300 yards in '05, acl surgery in 2006 (redshirt), 2007 was not fully recovered, but this year he should be a nice force, even though the team isn't very good.

                        anthony dixon sounds interesting. i've heard of him.

                            yeah, there is a difference between just being a big running back and running like a big back. moreno may be little-ish (not 6 1 230) but he runs like a power back.

                            lenwhale runs more like a sloth.

                              Fair enough.

                              I posted this in anticipation for BG having a great year -- now that he is fully healthy.

                              JoeM will qualify.

                              Stafon has had to split time with many, many other 5 star backs -- IMHO he should be our undisputed #1 RB, with JoeM as the scat, and BG as the goal line hammer.
