Wouldnt go that far. Green is the better total package back but would love to have both.

I think Green is more of a power back as well and I don't see him running away from tackles unless he can use his speed to beat someone. I think AK is more of a power back than people on here give him credit for but I agree with BB that he is more of a slasher. That's not a knock on him at all because I think he has a little better moves and can make people miss better than Green. And all of this is just what I've taken away from their highlights as I haven't seen either play in person so tifwiw. But AK is one of my favorite backs in this class and I think he will be very good wherever he ends up (I really wish that was UT but I think we are definitely playing catch up right now).

You may be correct. I hope you are.

I think Kamara is the better back. I think his style is a great fit for the SEC period.

I agree with you. AK fits this scheme perfectly. Green is fantastic, but AK would most definitely thrive with what we look like we'll be doing on offense.

Kamara is number 1 on my RB board and I reallly like Derek Green.

I just think Kamara can be special, especially in this offense.

Come on AK!

To each their own. Not many guys Green's size have 4.4 speed. Will that a big back like that who can outrun or run you over. But would love both.

I really don't think he'll run away from SEC defenses personally. I don't see that breakaway speed.

Lacy or gurley don't have amazing breakaway speed either. I would rather have a good punishing RB that can get a yard or 2 on 3rd down all year long.
