[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Woodhead for Faulk replacement this year and beyond.... : woodhead will never be a jones-drew...even though he`s porbably quicker. jones-drew is built like a tank and can take hits that will knock woodhead out of some games. the best that you can hope for with woodhead is to become another kevin faulk. good luck.

So Jones Drew is a "tank" knew he was a"tank" before he got drafted? Not too many people on this board.
Bottom line is scouts look @ the following criteria;
1) Abilities record on the football field... seen on film or measured in numbers.
2) Combine speed, agility, shiftiness, quickness (gathered from short and long shuttles) jumping high and afar, catching... and Strength.
3) The interview, education, chalk talk x&o's and knowledge of the game.
4) Background, upbringing, presentation.
5) Ar you a winner, do you have a high motor without a ceiling...
So if i am a scout and i have the following line up;
Who do you pick based on the criteria they use to select picks?
Lets level the playing field assume they are all from SEC teams!
Woodhead has the best 40, high jump, short shuttle, long shuttle, bench press of all of them.
His school won more with him @ RB than they had without him so he is a winner and a leader by example.
He statistics crush Jones Drews and Faulk as well.
If I was a scout i would pick Woodhead...
I am just bassing this on the fact that under similar circumstances the numbers support that he is the best back.
NOW; is Jones Drew a "Tank" yes... Could Woodhead take a hit like him probably not. but i have a feeling Jones Drew who gives rather than receives punishment has a shorter shelf life due to his style....
Woodhead is shifty and quick he dodges hits like Wleker and Faulk which is why they have been more durable than most.
Also; Jones Drew gets paid 6.5 mil per year correct?
Woodhead plays for the league min!
Jones Drew plays RB correct
Woodhead plays RB/WR punt return, kick off return and special teams
I am going to take the diamond in the rough who is a 4 tool player, who is more athletic and statistically better than the others FOR the min!
