    I think it's a toss up between all of them except J. Stewart but I'm going to take Rashard Mendenhall, because I know nobody else will. Mendenhall played better than he is in the option O at Illinois. I love his triangle #'s but I don't see him as being that great player he is supposed to be. He was impressive against USC which gives me hope, but it's a wait and see. There is a reason he fell to 23, so we'll see.

      I think Mendenhall is money. He runs with strength and finishes runs very well. His moves are good enough for the NFL level and he's quicker than he looks. I would bet on McFadden busting before I would bet on Mendenhall.

        While I don't think Jones or Johnson will ever be feature backs that are expected out of first round picks, I think that Stewart will bust, but not because of talent.
        I think that the turf toe and ankle injuries he's had will slow him down much quicker than the other guys.

          I do hope he succeeds. He looks like he'd be really enertaining.

              I'm going to say Mendenhall, even though I wish he'd been drafted by arizona..! On one hand, you've got to wonder why he was only a one year starter - Pierre Thomas isn't that good really... Also, from a purely suspersticious point of view, he got mugged so his luck isn't really in for him is it..! Thing is though, he's at pittsburg and he'll probably go on to be a star. Perfect position for him really. So yes i've sortof contradicted myself, but what i'm trying to say, is that if he was at another team, i think he'd be a bust!

                Chris Johnson has my vote. He's brought in because he's supposed to be a scat back complementary to LenDale White. Chris Henry tried it a year ago without much luck. I don't see anything out of Johnson that will revitalize their relatively ineffective running game, nor is he the weapon they need in the passing game.

                  i voted c. johnson too
                  i just think he was drafted to high

                  he will not be that productive and therefore be consindered a bust

                  if he would have been taken in rounds 2 or 3 he probably would be considered a bust in a few years

                    Chris Johnson might never run for 1200 yards, and I doubt he warrants first round but he has the edge over Felix Jones in my mind because I think he could become an elite return specialist. Plus he has some good traits too, like he only fumbled once last year.

                      I voted for McFadden Because he has no line to run with

                        Felix Jones definitely has a better line to run behind, and Marion Barber is a much better bruising back than LenDale White. I'll bet that Jones winds up with more yards than Johnson does, definitely.

                          This is tough. I don't even know what would qualify Jones and Johnson as busts since they were both drafted to be compliments instead of the primary back for their teams. Darren McFadden had the most hype, so I gotta go with him.

                            Excellent reason dude! Of course, since McFadden had the most hype, he'll bust! It makes perfect sence!

                              Chris Johnson. He is too one-dimensional.
