    Whenever i see this guy play i love his style of running more and more. Naturally i dont see him as much as you guys in the dallas area but when i do i would love to see him in a Dallas uniform. Now my question is this:
    If we get a stud on defense with our first pick and Benson is still there do we take a flyer on him??

    No, absolutely not.

    UNLESS

    Julius Jones doesn't show us anything for the rest of the season.

    BUT STILL

    I'm not impressed with Benson, I'm really not.

    I think WR is fast becoming a more critical need on the roster.

    You got that right. He's a more complete back than Benson is.

    LOL@comparing DeAngelo Williams, who plays against the likes of...
    Mississippi
    CHATTANOOG
    Arkansas State
    Cincinnati
    Southern Mississippi
    and who's team has a 95 SOS, to UT's EIGHT, yet his #'s are far less than Benson's.

    Smart $ says Benson will be the 1st back taken, and in all likelyhood, won't be around by pick 10.

    I too like Benson. I think he's the best back out there right now. I think he will make some team very happy but we'll have to see. Either way, I doubt we draft him unless Jones totally impodes.

    Sorry, but there were better backs in last year's draft, and they didn't go till late 1st round. Benson will probably go 1st round, but not top 10. Did I mention you are a homer? :D

    This might just be my homerism talking, but Benson looks much stronger and almost as fast as jackson with shiftier and quicker feet.

    I liked what I seen from Brown in the auburn game yesterday. Williams looked good too, I just think brown runs tougher. Benson to me could be a Ron Dayne or Ricky williams

    Benson is a complete back. He blocks and catches exceptionally well. He's produced at a high level since he was 15. He's gained over 5,000 yards at a Big 12 school. He gave up baseball to concentrate solely on football. He's on pace to gain 2,000 yards while averaging 5.5+ ypc despite facing 8 man fronts every week. The first man rarely ever makes the tackle and he punishes defenders.

    I think he compares very favorably to Curtis Martin as a pro, maybe batter. If you're a GM and you thought that, would you spend a top 10 on him?

    I'd be thrilled with Cedric Benson. He's been the model of consistency. He's bigger and stronger than he has been and it shows.

    Most folks that hate Benson fall into two categories:
    1. Texas fans that need a scapegoat. They hate the fact that they can't beat OU, and need to blame someone.....Mack Brown and Benson are the easy ones.

    2. OU fans that have a superior attitude. These guys think that any player from Texas is inferior since they can't beat the greatest thing since scented toilet paper.

    All year long Benson has ripped through teams. The only team he didn't get over 120 yards on was OU. Then he still got 92.....and remember, he was the only player OU had to concern themselves with. Texas has no passing game.

    Benson is almost never tackled by the first man. He is elusive, and can find the endzone. He is the most complete package of the RBs this year.
