View Full Version : How does Ronnie Brown stack up in the 2006 Draft

I think he would be the second running back to Bush (mostly because of the Bush hype). Ronnie in my opinion will be a better pro than Bush because of his size speed combo, not to mention that Ronnie's a Fin.

I also think that it's hard to pass up a blue chip QB or LT.

I think in light of this Ronnie would be drafted 5th in this years draft.

1. BUSH
2. Leinhart
3. V. Young
4. D'Brick
5. Ronnie B.

Where do you think the other top picks from last year would fare in this years draft?

I think Alex Smith would have fallen like a stone to the middle of the First Round in this years class-behind Cutler

4th or 5th sounds about right to me

i dunno why to think about that, he got picked in 2005yeah I agree with that. Who gives a sh*t where he would have been drafted this year. He got drafted last year.

Thats like asking now that we know how great Marino was, how come he went so late in the first round....

IF we picked #2 he wouldn't be a dolphin, we would have our qb for the future..............

He and smith could possibly fall out of the top 10 in this year's draft. I doubt he would go before 5.

Look, I love Ronnie. Ricky and Ronnie are my favorite Fins. But we did pick him at (2) and we pay him like a (2). If he normally in another draft such as 2006 go at a much lower slot from a "Saban value point of view" we're not getting value.

Have to agree. He was definitely the best choice for us last year, but that was a pretty weak draft by most accounts. We tried to trade down and couldn't.

And of course everyone knows the 2005 draft was a weak year. Everyone just needs to learn to live with it. It happens.

I think he'd still be in the latter part of the top 10 in this draft. It's hard to predict where he'd be taken based on team needs, but I think it's fair to say he'd be the clear #2 RB behind Reggie Bush this year.

i think he would be the 4th running back picked in the draft behind 1- bush 2- cadillac 3- d.williams

I'd say 5th or 6th sounds about right.

reggie bush has never carried a football more then 20 times in a game, in the nfl thats almost a standard. I dont see reggie being a great back. i dont see him taking the punishment most of these nfl players take, reggie will be riding nagging injuries and will be thrown from his high horse if he doesn't make the big plays in the nfl, which is hard to do. because it is the best of the best, and reggie ran over the west coast for 3 years, and now he has to run over nfl defenses? no way. Ronnie is the poster child for a running back you want, remember when marshall faulk was the man. thats the style of back ronnie can be

I'd say 4th behind Bush, Matt L. , and V. Young

In order to get an accurate and knowlegdable guess, you would have to wait until after the combine. His stock really skyrocketed from his workouts and combine. At this time last year he was projected middle first round.

If Ronnie Brown were moved to LB at Auburn, gained 20lbs, grew a mullet, and used 6 years of eligibility, where would he go in the 2007 Draft?

A mullet :goof:

Seriously- just trying to figure out if we paid good value for Ronnie.

Yeah I was thinking middle of the second day, but undrafted would not surprise me at all.

I think D.William is the best pure runner in the daft. Had he comeout last year. He would have been the No. 1 rb taken.

Could say the say the same thing about Cutler.

Bush vs Williams? Bush has better all-around skills. He gets the nod.

Somewhere between 4 and 10, with 4 or 5 likely.

I think Ronnie would still be top 5 but with the quality at the QB position this year I think Alex Smith would be lucky to go in the 1st round. Smith was smart to come out when he did.

I agree Smith was lucky to get drafted 1st overall cause if Matt L. would have came out last year he would have been a lock at 1st overall to SF. My guess would be that Saban had Ronnie higher then Edwards on his board since he did pick him ahead of Ewards, but he did have Smith up there as well.

Therefore, I am glad Matt L. did not come out last year cause we would have had a 50/50 shot at least of picking Smith. Although I am not giving up on Smith at being a decent to solid QB like alot of folks around here are, I just feel Ronny will be a better RB then Smith a QB.

Uhh that said, Where would Ronny go this year in the draft..... uhhhh

:confused2

Caddy was "the best pure runner" in last year's draft and we didn't take him. D'angelo should be a good back, but he is not the back that Caddy is/was so what makes you think we would have taken him over Ronnie?

You guys forget to realize RB was the fastest, the quickest, one of the biggest, and had the best hands of all running backs in the draft - a draft that had some studs rb's at the top. Bush is faster and quicker than Ronnie, but can he run inside in the NFL? He couldn't even do it in college.
