It has become a pretty popular opinion that the Eagles may draft a running back in the first. We know that it is basically a 2 RB race at this point.
#1 Beanie Wells,
In my opinion, he is a pure powerback, has great acceleration with strong hole burst. He shows great vision and cuts back very well, with out slowing down. He lacks the moves of a some other backs. But appears to be a running back in the mold of Ricky Watters/ Duece Staley/ or Ricky Williams. He is basically an old school, pound the rock guy. But he does have injury problems
#2 Knowshon Moreno
He is very athletic, and has better than average moves. He is good on screens and has great open field presence, he can take it to the house if he has space. But he is not a power back. He lacks a burst to the hole. But is still a running back that will demand respect in the NFL.
I know that there are other backs like Greene, and McCoy, but I don't know much about these others guys.
If you had to pick a running back in the first round, who do you select. Tell me your observations on that back. I know that McCoy and Green may be second round guys, but you guys may have more information on those guys that I have, and maybe we are all missing out on these guys.
Who do you draft? Your on the clock, and the pick is in.
