Dave Brown was probably the BIGGEST GIANTS DRAFT BUST I can remember. Dayne on the other hand was a Bust but IMOVHO he was NEVER UTILIZED in the correct way. Yes Ron Dayne was a BIG MAN and he looked like the type of running back that could bulldoze his way to open day light, but to the contrary he wasn't that type of Back. Fassel wanted Dayne to get the tough yards the 3rd and 1 first down against a Goal Line Defense the 1/2 yard Touchdown and every defense knew he was getting the ball. Yes Dayne looked like he could do that but he didn't have the Strength to do that. He was a Big Man with not so big strength. If you really look at his college film he was a finesse runner in a Jerome Bettis body. For his size he was FAST and he had great reflexes. In normal Running Back situations you know when there is a hole to run through, he would hit the hole raise his head and make 1 to 2 guys miss and he woud be gone. He wasn't and never could be the BRUISING BACK The Giants and Fasell thought he could be. After leaving The Giants and having his body beat to **** and basically was done because he took the hits (ALOT OF THEM) he still managed to have a pretty descent (NOT GREAT DESCENT) couple of years in Oakland
