        Maurice Drew is FAR different than Quentin Griffin. You need to get beyond just the size comparison.

        Drew would be a PERFECT fit in the Broncos system, and IMO would be a good pick up in the second round.

        I don't think Drew will stand out with just any team, he'll have to be in the right system. Preferably one that uses the RB out of the backfield, and or a zone blocking scheme like us or the Falcons.

        If you put Drew here in Denver, he would be a fantastic fit and add a playmaking aspect to the offense.

        He's probably somewhat of a Brian Westbrook/Dave Meggett combo as far as potential. Maybe a Kevin Faulk with a higher ceiling for potential.

            THANK YOU!!! i'm glad to see someone hasn't forgotten about him, and even better to see that someone agrees with me in saying that he would be great in Denver

              The dude's fast for sure. I'm not sure if UCLA ran a zone blocking system though. I know USC runs a zone-blocking system for White very often.

              He would not be a bad pickup, but honestly I think he's more of a shifty scat speed back than anything else.

                Drew is more of a 3rd down back "type," but if put in the right system he "could" be an exception, could.

                I really think that Dave Meggett is the right comparison for Drew. Drew is a lot stronger than people give him credit for and is very compact.

                Speed definitely, somewhat shifty but not like Barry Sanders or Quentin Griffin type. He's got a lot more direct punch and burst straight away than do some in his typecast. A lot of people say Drew is a poor man's Reggie Bush, but the truth might be that Drew isn't all that poor, simply got lost in Reggie's shadow all year.

                Drew will be an interesting player to watch at the next level. I think A LOT will be determined by which team selects him. If I were Maurice, I'd be hoping and praying for a west coast offense with a zone blocking scheme.

                In other words, Denver, Atlanta, or Green Bay if they truly add some zone blocking under McCarthy like they are rumored to. Because the Texans will already have their guy in Bush. If Maurice can get to one of those 3 teams, he will probably have the highest chance to succeed IMO.

                  i think you're bang on with your evaluation of drew. he may not have the bulk to be a #1 guy, but he does run with some pop for a guy his size. he lowers his shoulder and finishes off his runs.

                  he's also a great return man, both punts and kick offs. as a depth/3rd down/return guy i would love to have him.

                    He is hands down the best punt returner in this draft.

                    But I think the reason that people are no longer talking much about him, is that we pick twice in the first, much too early for him, and then not again until late in the second, probably too late for him. If we had a high-to-mid second rounder, you probably would hear his name come up a lot more in discussions.

                    And as far as the Texans go...who's to say they won't use one of a couple second-rounders on him if they decide to trade down? They could come away with D'Brickashaw, Nick Mangold, and Maurice Drew....not a bad 3 guys to help rebuild a franchise from the ground up.

                    Hell who knows, Maroney could even be there for one of those early second-rounders...

                      hes alright for a 3rd down back, but for a #1 back, I dont think so. Denvers run offense works best with a little bigger back getting 4 to 5 yards consitantly, not 0 yards 3 runs in a row and then a 20 yarder. it doesnt give your offense a chance to put consitance drives together.
