Cardinals vs. Raiders: Is Beanie Wells Ready to Be a Feature RB in the NFL?
Beanie Wells had a disappointing season in 2010, carrying the ball only 116 times for only 397 yards.
He also battled injuries, appearing in only 13 games.
But, the Cardinals traded Tim Hightower, last year's No. 1 running back meaning Wells is the guy in Arizona.
According to ESPN, Wells looks good in training camp, despite pressure from his rookie backup, Ryan Williams:
"Beanie Wells still projects as the starting running back heading into the season even though rookie second-round choice Ryan Williams has impressed. Every negative play from Wells invites skepticism regarding his ability to meet expectations as a 2009 first-round draft choice. That was the case when Wells fumbled during the first full-contact goal-line session of camp. Wells bounced back with energized runs the following day, though, and he knows the offense better than Williams at this point."
If Wells has more good days than bad days in training camp, he should be just fine during the regular season.
We should see him get plenty of action in Thursday night's game against the Oakland Raiders.
It would be really nice for Cardinals fans if he would break a long run or two in the first quarter. Some explosive potential would be a good sign from him.
Though, it shouldn't be too hard for him to eclipse his 3.4 yards-per-carry average from a year ago.
