    3.9 AVG

    His stats aren't terribly bad (for a 4th round pick) and Laurence Maroney's better back!

    The Minnesota OL is a really good OL, but that doesn't mean the backs aren't good too.

    The fact that the Pats went to Minnesota to check out Barber last year but ended up being more interested in Maroney is very telling.

    yea he had the 80 yard game and the 150 yard game last year..he'll be a pretty good back once given enough of a chance.

    good to hear..I like Barber, but I like Maroney about 200x more. But yea, I wouldn't doubt if Barber becomes a 1000 yard back.

    Reminds me of back in the early 60's, couple of Bruin scouts went up to scout a player named Rick Green of the Oshawa Generals, but came away more impressed by a defenseman named...what was his name???? Oh yeah - Bobby Orr.

    Minnesota is becoming RB University. Barber is definitely looking like a starting-caliber back. Maroney looks like the real deal. And this kid Gary Russell could be a 1st rounder next year if he improves his grades.

    In addition I am going to take a leap of faith and say BB/SP are knowledgeable enough about football and scouting to be able to differentiate what is Maroney and what it is his line/system on film and in person.

    Funny thing about Julius Jones...

    He's missed 11 games in 2 seasons. He's only had 4 100-yard games at the NFL level. When he did break 100, he was phenomenal (140+). However, he's done little in the games in between those great performances. That's why it wouldn't have shocked me if Dallas had went for DeAngelo Williams or Maroney with their #18 pick in the 2006 draft.
