Is Maurice Jones Drew worth drafting with a high pick

Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter insists the Jaguars' coaching staff has had no discussions about limiting Maurice Jones-Drew's (knee) workload this season.

Early last season Maurice Jones Drew suffered a tear in the lateral meniscus of his left knee. It worsened throughout the grind of the NFL season to the point of “bone on bone contact”, Jones-Drew claims.

By Dan Trautman Injury Guru

Injury Explanation

The meniscus is a C-shaped form of cartilage between the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin bone). Jones-Drew underwent surgery to have the meniscus repaired, keyword “repaired.” With meniscus injuries, a doctor can either “repair” the torn cartilage or “remove” the damaged part. If the torn cartilage is “repaired,” this means the doctor believes the meniscus has a greater chance to heal. If a doctor chooses to “remove” the damaged part, it is believed that the injury will not heal, so the damaged area is removed and cleaned.

This injury is all about pain tolerance and toughness. Most NFL players are tough, though a few have what I call the “Favre Factor.” These are the rare guys who would take a bullet to the chest and proceed to go score the game-winning touchdown on the next play. Never doubt this kind of player, and Maurice Jones-Drew is one of them. Jones-Drew played through a lot of pain with the bone on bone contact last season, but was still effective, rushing for 100-plus yards in six-straight games from Weeks 8-14.

If Jones-Drew’s knee flares up from time to time this season, it isn’t something that will directly hamper Jones-Drew’s success. The medical prognosis says he should be back to 100 percent by training camp and, based on the current reports, I have no reason to doubt that. From a physical standpoint, I think you can expect to see the same punishing back we have all grown so accustomed to.

Recent reports have suggested that the Jaguars may not be as dependent on Jones-Drew this season, especially with their eagerness to get Rashad Jennings more reps, but this shouldn’t scare you away from drafting the stud RB, as the slight reduction in carries will be offset by fresher legs.

Now, his knee has been fixed by Dr. James Andrews and Jones-Drew has resumed running.

"This is something that he will, guarantee, 100 percent comeback [from]," trainer Pete Bommarito said. "It will not even remotely affect him in any way shape or form. I know his body, I know his mentality, and I know his attention to detail with everything. This is

And the funniest thing to me, quoting Dan Trautman?

And who, you may ask, is the Injury Guru? Has he spent years as a trained medical professional, working with the likes of Dr. Andrews in Alabama?

No, not quite.

From his own yardbarfer article:
Dan Trautman is a wide receiver at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse majoring in Exercise and Sports Science.

Yeah, that's who I want to see quoted/plagarized.

I'm not worried about bowling balls knee. Look what he accomplished on 1 leg last year. Even 75% the guy is a monster. If he's close to 100% everyone is going to get him at sick ridiculous value.

His trainer says he's in top notch shape. Bone on Bone though..can't believe that didn't leave some indelible marks behind. Still, I believe you're correct ASB, if he drops to a certain point, I will be all over it. No question.

If the top 7 RBs were off the board I'd have no problem drafting MJD. He's as tough as they come and Jacksonville has one of the best rushing attacks in the league.

Same here, but I have a dream that all of the injury talk could push him into the middle of the 2nd in some leagues.
