Barber was the best (safest) RB left. He runs with more power that Ced. Houston, plays faster than Fason, and has more wiggle than Jacobs. Best thing about this pick is that it is not Clarett. I was afraid (if Denver had not reaced for Clarett) that Bill would have drafted maurice.
I watched on TV a few times over the past two years and was really hoping we could get a 3rd to land him or Shelton...he fell to the 4th...this is a great One Two punch with JJ....happy about Barber!!!
I saw him run with more wiggle then the analyst are giving him credit for, but has the power we need and does not go down easy...dang I'm excited!
I think with picking Barber in the 4th, and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, the Cowboys can get stronger in the screen game. That's something they have had little success in for too many years now. He might be the Richie Anderson type back with better speed.
I don't believe in team motivation. I believe in getting a team prepared so it knows it will have the necessary confidence
