Miami finished up its first day selections by taking Lorenzo Booker, a RB, from Florida State.
Earlier in the week, he was quoted as saying "Leon made me a whole lot of money. He went out and proved that he's a better player than his stats showed."
Of course, he was talking about former teammate Leon Washington, who was selected in the fourth round of last year's draft after rushing for just 430 yards as a senior at FSU. As an NFL rookie, Washington led the New York Jets in rushing with 650 yards, and he caught 25 passes for 270 more.
I have to wonder who is in more trouble now? Marty Booker because he shares a last name or Ricky Williams (or for that matter Ronnie Brown) because they will be vying for playing time in the backfield.
