    Ronnie Brown will be 24 when the season starts? Please confirm or refute

    I heard this in another thread. If it is true please confirm it here.

    This is extremely distressing in my opinion. We spend the second overall pick in the draft for a running back. Running backs start going downhill at 27, 28.

    You might say that his body hasn't taken that much of a toll so far, but he has had his share of nicks and bruises through college.

    Please tell me this isn't true and that's he's 20 or 21.

    He's 23 and will be 24 in December. Continue being distressed and worried while the rest of us look foward to a bright career here in Miami.

    He's 23. He has no mileage on him compared to Caddy or Benson.

    Quick! Get on the horn and let Corey Dillon know!

    "Typically" they do at THIRTY. However Brown hasnt seen extensive time in college and is more fresh. Generally the rule of thumb is after 7 seasons the average running back will tail off.

    He's 23. Will be 24 on December 12th.

    Brown is a whopping 4 months older than Carnell Williams. 1 year older than Benson.

    There are exceptions, I never said there weren't. But it amounts to us drafting a guy who will turn 24 during the season. 24 is when RBs should be in their prime. I suppose this can still be a successful pick..

    ...but we can't afford a learning curve with this guy. He needs to start with those 1500 yard seasons this year and not stop. And for the 2nd overall pick in the draft, he needs to run for us for 10 years.

    RB's don't go downhill at a certain age. They generally start going downhill (due to injuries) after 1500-2500 CARRIES. It's mileage not age.
