I'm really not sure why more "respect" isn't given to the running back combo of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, in the sense of them not both being considered potential high first-round draft picks. Just a few years ago, there was another SEC running back tandem that came out in the draft (2005) and both of the players went in the top five, despite neither putting up numbers as good as McFadden's and Jones'. Ronnie Brown, the No. 2 pick by Miami, was the "backup" at Auburn and rushed for 913 yards and 8 touchdowns on 153 carries (6.0 per carry) his final year. The previous year, he rushed for 446 and 5 touchdowns on 95 carries (4.7). His best year was 2002, when he rushed for 1,008 and 13 touchdowns on 175 carries (5.8). As a redshirt freshman, he rushed 84 times for 330 (3.9) and 2 touchdowns. Felix rushed for 626 yards and 3 touchdowns on 99 carries (6.3) as a true freshman. The next year, he rushed for 1,168 yards nd 6 touchdowns on 154 carries (7.6). Then as a junior, he rushed for 1,162 and 11 touchdowns on 133 carries (8.7). Plus, he was an outstanding kickoff returner. Cadillac Williams, who went fifth to Tampa Bay, posted these numbers: 141-745 (5.3)-10 in 2002; 241-1,307 (5.4)-17 in 2003, and 239-1,165 (4.9)-12 in 2004. McFadden's numbers are 176-1,113 (6.3)-11 as a true freshman; 284-1,714 (5.8)-14 as a sophomore, and 325-1,830 (5.6)-16 as a junior. Now, it now appears that the Brown/Williams tandem probably shouldn't have gone that high and I also admit that numbers don't tell the whole story, but it seems to me that this Arkansas running back tandem might be getting sold short because of the depth at the position in this draft and maybe for other reasons.
