Jackson and Maroney remind me of each other quite a bit. Remember Jackson was a guy that if Wilfork hadn't fallen to us we probably would have grabbed him. Also remember that he was splitting time with Faulk his first two years much like Maroney with Dillon. Check out not only his rushing progression but also receiving. http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/492963 Now look at LM http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/432895 I think the numbers are very similar and remember although Jackson has better numbers in terms of yards per rush and catch his team had a much better receiving corps that year and a better run blocking line especially behind Pace. Also do a search on Stephen Jackson and something like "inability to hit the hole", the Rams fans were killing him for that his rookie year. I think Maroney had a great rookie year and has a ton of room to grow. If he was able to progress to Jackson's 2nd and then 3rd year we would have a star. I don't think he could have given us too much more his rookie year and I think BB handled him perfectly. Give the kid time he's going to be special like Jackson.
