Is Felix a First-Round Bust?

The Dallas Morning News had an interesting article over the weekend retrospectively looking at the 2008 class of running backs.  The thrust of the article, Felix Jones isn't even in the top-10 productive RBs in just that year's class.  Jones barely edges out the maligned Justin Forsett to hold onto the 11th spot.

Chris Johnson, Tennessee 3,535 790 30 4,325
Matt Forte, Chicago 2,275 1,150 19 3,425
Ray Rice, Baltimore 2,003 1,040 8 3,043

Kevin Smith, Detroit 1,723 701 13 2,424
Jamaal Charles, Kansas City 1,715 661 10 2,376
Jonathan Stewart, Carolina 2,037 204 22 2,241
Tim Hightower, Arizona 1,206 714 20 1,920
Darren McFadden, Oakland 1,201 610 7 1,811
Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh 1,498 296 10 1,794
Felix Jones, Cowboys 1,039 167 6 1,206
Justin Forsett, Seattle 769 406 5 1,175

 

There's been great anticipation for over 2 years of what Felix could do for this team.  At what point do we switch from talking about potential to talking about results?
