    Default What about Beanie Wells?

    I know that this could be a reach but if the Chiefs wanted to get a top quality running back to replace the apparent removal of Larry Johnson, then I would seriously consider Beanie at the number three slot of the draft. This kid has raw talent with the ball and can be a better back in this league then Johnson ever was. He may have durability issues but so did Adrian Peterson in his rookie year. Just a thought.

    Too injury prone IMO, not worthy of a first round pick.

    Drafting a RB in the 1st round when your OL is terrible would make me cry. :(

    Yep, 99 times out of 100 a back is only as elite as his line is, as Chiefs fans we should know this :P

    I'm an Ohio State fan (among other NCAA teams) and having watched Beanie for the past couple of years my honest assessment is...

    The guy's a beast...yet not...He's fast but he's not a burner and he's big yet not a line buster. In reality he's a hybrid LJ clone with maybe a little more top end speed but without the lower body strength to power run. Now I'm just a fan but I really don't see Beanie's game translating well to the NFL game.

    Larry had a 4.62 at the combine

    Beanie Wells ran 4.59

    Not huge but still faster he was projected at 4.4. Ran faster then Knowshon Moreno in spite of the fact that he's 20-lbs heavier then him

    one more thing....I went to Michigan and Beanie sucks!

    jk.

    McShay - not sure what makes him an expert - showed some tape of him stepping out of bounds in front of some DBs and questioned his character tho - called him a Cedric Benson-like risk - ouch!
