    Emmitt Smith's opinion on drafts top backs

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/s...ter-richardson

    Key points-
    Doug Martin- In fact, he even uttered the words "he might be better than Trent" not only once, but twice

    Lamar Miller- He's a bigger Clinton Portis, a bigger Clinton Portis. And faster. Exceptional speed and home-run threat, without a doubt.

    Robert Turbin- But too many one-man tackling, getting brought down by one guy
    isn't going to get it done. Doesn't always run like a 225-pound power
    back, runs like he's 205 or 210. I'm not sure he would have survived in the SEC.

    Bernard Peirce- I'm not seeing a whole lot. He's a little bow-legged. He runs too
    high, allows his upper body to get ahead of his legs, that's how
    injuries happen. I don't see anything special. Holds ball too loose. He's not flashy,
    doesn't do much to excite me. He's a "guy." He's not a back who can
    consistently help me.

    Nothing on David Wilson? I hope we can snag one of the top backs....fixing our run game is a must

    I would tend to agree ... Emmit doesn't have a lot going on upstairs but I'd tend to listen to him with regards to running back evaluations.

    Not necessarily as gospel, but his opinions in this area do have merit imo.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    He is an idiot. Last year he said the best prospect coming out was "Cam Norton."
