|They are clearly in nedd of a RB eveybody knows that. But who and how will they aquire him? Draft, trade or signing. Here is a list of potenetial RBs to join the Dolphins
Ronnie Brown-Available through draft and considerd to be the most comple of the top 3 RBs and is faster and heavier than the other 2 with better hands and blocking skills.
Caddillac Williams-Available though the draft and is the #2 best RB on most draft boards. Was the starter over R.Brown the last 2 seasons. Has excellent field vison and can be vey elusive.
Cedric Benson-Benson, widely considered to be a Ricky Williams clogne, but with out the selfishness and weed. He has the best inside runnin ability of the 3 and can run outside but maybe not in the pros considering he only ran 4.5s to 4.6s.
Edgerin James-Availble for Surtain and pick or a 2nd that Miami doesn;' have right now. Runs very well and has when he is healthy. The knock on him is he has past injuried to his knees and is 26 years old and asking for too much money.
Shaun Alexander-Favored over James by most people because he is coming off a better season, is less injury prone and is a scoring machine. Although he is asking for about the same amount of money and 27 years old. The Dolphins could trade a 2nd rounder for him if they aquire one for Surtain and they get to keep the #2 which they could use to draft DJ or trade down for more picks including a 2nd rounder.
Travis Henry-Available for a 1st day pick. He had a season ending injury las season but hasn't necessarly been injury prone. He has made the probowl and ran 1,400 the year before last as considered to be cheaper trade-wise and contract-wise.
Michael Bennett-Available for a 1st day pick. He has been very injury prone but can be really good when he is healthy. He is very quick. Probably just as or cheaper than Henry.
William Green-Available for a 4th or maybe lower. A troubled RB on field and off. Got in alittle trouble with the law and lost his starting spot and failed to run for 1,000 yards in his time as the starter for the Browns.
Anthony Thomas-Avaialbe through free agency. Not considerd to be asking for too much money just a starting job. Was a starter for the Bears until last year. Did have some injuries and hasn't been as good as his rookie season but can be god in the right system on the right team.
Eddie George-Available through free agency-Word is he is going to return to the Titans. He is an over the Hill RB that has always failed to run for more than 4.5 yards a carry in a season. He is considerd to be quite sluggish now with his size and old legs.
Then there is Amos Zeroue in free agency, And many Rbs in the draft that can be available in the lower round like C.Fason, V.Morency, M.Barber, D.Sproles, R.Moats, E.Shelton and B.Jacobs.
So who would you take?
