In the Jones or Rice thread, I discussed Jamaal Charles as a draft option for round 2 or round 3 to backup Marion Barber. However, I don't see where he is widely supported on this forum. Is there a reason or a knock against him as a RB? In terms of speed, he may be the fastest RB in the draft. I see Chris Johnson from East Carolina is getting a lot of support, but Charles is faster. Johnson ran a 10.62 in the 100-meter, while Charles ran a 10.23 as a freshman and won the Big-12 title...thats Terrance Newman-type speed, folks. Here is my write-up from the other thread: Jamaal Charles - Texas Height: 6-1. Weight: 200. 40 Time: 4.34. Strengths: Speed, home run threat, agility, solid interior runner, can break tackles, effective as a receiver, tough runner. Weaknesses: size, tends to fumble Comparative running style: Tiki Barber I didn't always like Charles as an option, but he is really growing on me. Other than his fumbling, I really think this kid has it all. He can power his way inside but also has the speed to get around the corner and take it to the house. His abilities as a receiver make him an even more complete running back. With the blocking scheme that I already discussed, Charles would do a better job than Julius would getting through the running lanes and will make big plays with his speed and moves once he gets into the second level. He would make an excellent partner with Marion as well. Should Marion come out of the game with an injury, Charles should be able to carry the load. IF we can somehow get Charles in the 2nd or even 3rd round, I think we would have a huge steal on our hands.
