I know this is a little late, but why did Salaam fall so far in the draft?

Because "pin heads" like the Oilers and several other teams wouldn't
know what to do with a back like Salaam.

The Bears havn't had a decent  back since Sweetness... O.K, maybe Anderson.
Anyway, I can't wait to see what Salaam does with the Bears.  Go Bears!!!

He didn't fall far in the draft, he went where people projected him to go.
He was rated below Ki Jana and Tyronne because his 40 yd sprint was about
0.05-0.1 second slower.  He is also a straight point and go type of a back
like Herchel Walker without alot of moves so he brings some question marks
to the pros.  Still Heisman trophy winning RBs have fared well in the NFL,
unlike alot of other pos'ns.  I think he will be a good RB in the NFL,
probably not great, but I'ld be surprised if he is a bust.

I hope that Kramer or Walsh can run the option or your looking at a bust
in a running back.  Most of his yards came because kordell beat everybody
on the opposing offense to the corner and pitched to Salaam who took it
the rest of the way.  The bears are better off with Tillman as the
featured back and that is not saying much.

Tell me Rob, just what do you base this opinion on?  This is not a retorical
question since it may be that Rob has seen a lot of CU games.  All I can say
is that I saw 3 of thier games last year, and in all 3 cases Salaam gained
more yards between the tackles than on the option -- a lot more.  I can see
the point of those who are skeptical of Salamm because the CU line was so
*** that he didn't have to work for his yards, but I don't think the
option-only rap applies.  And the Bears (IMHO) are definately NOT better off
with Tillman as the featured back.  Tillman was semi-effective last year, but
we saw everything he had to offer and it wasn't enough.  The Bears need the
threat of the outside run to open up the inside a little.  In the end, Salaam
may be no better (or even worse) than Tillman, but he may also be much better
and the Bears must take the chance and find out because they already know
that what they have is not sufficent.

He had a bad rap I heard as far as his explosiveness goes. They did not
really think that he had as good an explosive step as Ki-Jana Carter. Also
the teams that hje racked up the 2 grand of yards was questioned. I think
that he will be a fine back. I guess this signals the end sometime soon of
the Rodney Hampton

How do you figure when Salaam was drafted by Chi.  You can spell the end of
hampton as "W-H-E-A-T-L-E-Y"
