Took this guy early last year and he was frustrating at times.
While he could go off for 2-3 TD's and 100 in one game.
He had games where he got (4,7,13,17 yards total rushing respectively)

Maybe he does more without Freddy T by his side, but for me, I"m going to pass unless he falls.
I don't think he'll make it out of the 1st round in most drafts.

In my opinion, Jones Drew is the NUMBER 1 pick in leagues where you're awarded points for catches. In standard leagues he's a strong #2. He'll end up with more TDs than Peterson as I believe Peterson is more of an injury risk and MJD doesn't have to split carries with a legit backup like AD does with Chester Taylor.

What do you all think about Maurice Jones Drew. A lot of people have him the second ranked player, im not sure if i agree.

I personally agree completely.

He has scored double digit touchdowns every single year he has been in the league and he really hasn't had any injury problems.

I would take him at two....

Probably some combination of Greg Jones and Jennings. I actually like Jones as a sleeper.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Very solid player, although being the feature-back may be too much for him to handle. Time will tell though.

If I had a low first round pick (20-32) I'd pick him up.

I personally think MJD is getting too much hype. Im expecting a bad season for the Jags because their passing game is horribile and that offensive line was a mess last year. Teams will key in on MJD and it will be tough for him to post good numbers

They had a major face lift up front. I expect top 5 numbers.

O-Line was hammered with injuries.  Plus, they drafted two solid OL with first two picks this year.  OL shouldn't be a problem.

Certainly, has the potential to be within the top 5.
