    Well, if they were all there at 17, we'd be crazy to pass up a back like williams. But at 17, we are probably gonna get the choice of white or maroney. While I like both backs, I think Maroney is slightly a better choice. Remember, like Reggie Bush, White also hasn't proven he can be a feature back. Just because he is a bigger back, doesn't mean he can take the pounding and stay strong throughout the game and stay healthy. That is something Maroney has proven already. While I think both will be good NFL backs, I just think Maroney is gonna be a stud RB in the NFL.

    Maroney or White would be good, but we need O-line!

    Disagree. I don't have the patience for a rookie O-lineman. I really hope we address that in free agency. In the draft I'm hoping for a running back or a safety that can contribute right away.

    I like Maroney myself .... but it all depends on the new philosophy of the new H.C. ... But looking at our current "O" line (which is all we really have to go off of ) .... I like L. White. I think he will be the banger back all NFL teams look for. Then bring in MeMo or Fason for the "off" downs once White is ready to carry the majority of the load.

    Well Williams is obviously the best choice but he's a top ten back so he won't fall to 17.

    Maroney is a better choice than white, he has way more speed. which fits in to our offense more than a bruiser would, besides we have a bruiser his name is ciatrick.

    As far as people saying maroney isn't a featured back then they havn't watched many Gopher games. he averages about 20-25 carries a game and has carried the ball 30+ times in 3 games. and 40 times twice.

    I think maroney is the a complete back he has speed he's elusive and he breaks alot of tackles

    Agreed, being able to handle that many carries is very impressive. I think he'll be a great NFL back.
