Position Series: RB Depth Is A Good Problem

Marion Barber - Production declined in his first season as the feature back; now healthy, he'll look to pick up where he left off in 2007.
Felix Jones - Hamstring and toe injuries cost him 10 games last year; was growing into a rushing, receiving and kick returning threat in the first six.
Tashard Choice - His 81.25-yard average in December against four of the league's top defenses (Steelers, Giants, Ravens, Eagles) proved he's the real deal.
Deon Anderson (FB) - Special teams fixture; his role on offense could decrease with more use of two-tight end sets, however.
Julius Crosslin (FB) - Solid practice squad player last year will look to crack the active roster this time around.
Asaph Schwapp (FB) - Bruising fullback could be dominant blocker at 250 pounds.
Alonzo Coleman - Speedy back wants full-time job on the 53-man roster, but competition is probably too steep.
Keon Lattimore - See above; talented rusher, but running back depth means practice squad is his best bet.
