I'd go Jones-Drew, Maroney, Brown. Brown being the consensus worst of the three.

Well since this is for 07, then I may agree with Jones-Drew, but I still say Maroney for the future.

:nod:
Though I am wary of Maroney's apparently balky body.

Jones-Drew is a no-brainer long term because Fred Taylor almost certainly won't be in JAX after this coming season and they have a decent OL core that's going to be together for awhile.

I've never been a Brown fan and he's yet to live up to even my low expectations. He gets some credit for playing behind the worst run-blocking OL in the last decade, though Ricky Williams looked mighty solid behind the same line.

thanks for the input guys. I have alexander as a keeper from last year and one of these three will most likely fall to me in the second/third round this year and I need one of them as insurance. Looks like Jones-drew or maroney it shall be....that is as long as henry and mcgahee are off the boards

Oh, I didn't realize this was a fantasy football pick.

am i the only one that thinks jones-drew's #'s will take a big dip this season? maybe not even a big dip but will lose about 300 yds etc...b/c he made alot of big plays last year and i dont know if he'll pull off that many this year.

I think his yards may stay near the same or better, but I think his TDs will definitely go down.
