Guice is fantastic but he just doesn't have the same power Fournette has. And Fournette doesn't have the agility but they just have different styles, I don't know why one style has to be more important than the other.

Just like someone comparing Maroney and Barber back in the day.

Some people think Fournette is an elite talent that we haven't seen come out of college in a long while and has gotten some Adrian Peterson comparisons, so when they see another RB from the same school the same year killing it then people overthink it.

Because making tacklers miss and gaining a lot of yards is better than running straight at somebody and gaining a few yards.

Let's not act like Leonard didn't get his fair share of yards. Doesn't matter how he got them. You can make the argument that his style is more prone to injury and getting him worn down but in the midst of a game, agility isn't everything.

I can also argue that his style is less effective against NFL players

You are right that agility isn't everything, but not having agility is kind of a pretty big deal. It's not like agility is the only thing Guice has going for him either.

Ouch. As a Patriots fan, I'm still sad about Maroney. Such wasted potential. Sad

More to the point of this thread, Baker had a great pass breakup to start the game against Alabama. He's so instinctive and covers so much ground. Earl Thomas is the easy comparison, but I really think he's got a chance to be that good. Underrated player, if anything.

I was expecting to be impressed by TJ Watt and was. He's getting held like crazy too.

Been telling you guys, he's going to tear up the offseason and end up in the first round.

Wisconsin TE Troy Fumagalli is having a nice game against Western Michigan.
