2006 NFL draft the Jets will select...RB

The Fat Man

Recommended Posts

There are only 3 backs on the my hot list; Reggie Bush & Tyrell Sutton & DeAngelo Williams.

2 of them have played legitimate teams and have decent rushing defense rankings. I like Sutton better for rushing numbers because of what he did in games vs Ohio State (Ranked #1) and Penn State (Ranked #10). Bush is a better receiver. I included some game stats too.

Impressive numbers but against teams like Tulsa, Chattanooga, UAB and other weak teams in the Conference USA division he is not included as a viable candidate. All teams Memphis played against were not in the top 50 rushing defense categories.
