    Slaton reminds me of Brian Westbrook. I think he would be fine getting the same amount of carries that JJ gets.

    Being compared to Brian Westbrook is a pretty good compliment in my view. I hate Philly but I respect the heck out of Westbrook and what he brings to the table.

    If hes Brian Westbrook then I hope we get him but he reminds me of a poor mans Reggie Bush.

    If Barber takes a fall I wouldnt be as comfortable with him as I would be some others. Even Mike Hart i'd be more comfortable with if Barber got hurt.

    I'm kinda surprised that no one has mentioned Felix Jones, especially with the Arkansas ties. I think he is the perfect compliment to Barber and he's already used to sharing the load and spotlight. Not to mention return ability and receiving skills.

    What's all this "compliment" talk?

    I just want a GOOD RB. Who care's how he "compliments" Barber?

    If we could draft Barber's clone I would do it. Wouldn't hurt at all to have two backs like Barber.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding what people are saying, but I think you get into trouble when you worry about finding a COMPLIMENT or backup. You just take the best player at the position that you can.

    Stewart reminds me of Barber....but that wouldn't stop me from drafting him.

    All that being said, I'm not sure there are any real top flight RB prospects in the draft other than McFadden. There are plenty to be had in rounds two through four.

    Choice would be a nice prospect. I do like Kevin Smith...he's a slasher. I think he would fit in a Denver-type cut and go. There's a bunch of clips of him on youtube. One clip has all 41 carries of his game against UAB (he had like 300 yards rushing that game). He has a lot of nice runs, but he also gets stopped in the backfield quite a bit.

    Sorry, I got distracted I guess....Between Slaton and Stewart, I'll take Stewart.

    Choice is a good back, however, he is an injury waiting to happen.

    I completely agree with the first and second quote... and as far as Rice...dadgum but if you slapped a Cowboy #22 Jersey on him that said Smith and taped some of the moves and runs that I am not sure I would always be able to tell you who was the real Emmitt and who was the memorex...I really hate to do that to the kid... that is setting the bar far too high. But it is who he reminds me of and I am probably only setting him up for failure in my mind.
