  1. It baffles me that Kenneth Dixon is consistently ranked ahead of Buck Allen. I don’t think there is one fact to support that idea, unless we are now saying that rookies start with the 1s and everyone that has already played in the NFL now has to displace rookies.

    • Thanks Cris for you input. Right now Baltimore’s backfield is very murky. I’ve ranked Dixon higher, because the film has pointed me in that direction. I think he’s the best back in Baltimore, to early to know for sure. I do believe its between those two and Forsett is the odd man out. If you have a strong feel for Buck Allen, than by all means do some early drafting and get some stock in him!
