I’d double dip...David Montgomery, then way later Alex Barns. You need more than 2 RBs in the NFL.

Ty Johnson for me. He just ran a pro day 40 that would have beat the fastest combine time this year.(4.26) he's also a KR.

I would love to get a kr that plays a position other than WR. No need to keep Trevor Davis around who only brings value on special teams. And ,4.26 out of the backfield is blazing fast

On a different subject but that’s why I liked Deebo Samuel so much cause it seems like he is plug n play in the slot and a really really awesome KR..

How can anybody not like Tray williams? Best blocker in the draft and great hands. Perfect for a LeFleur offense.

He I like him, I just like Barnes better cause he benches 32 reps at 225....a lot of LBs coming out can’t do that. I translated that as to punch blocking in the NFL. He also had great college games

We don’t need a 3-down back. Henderson is nicer than most of the backs you mentioned. For ZBS - this guy has patience and then he plants and goes. He doesn’t have the greatest long speed, but he is decisive and has nice initial burst through the hole.

I do think we need a bruiser for the weather and short yardage, but I don’t see anything so great in this group. I hope our braintrust can conjure something there.

I want a guy who can move the pile on 3rd and 2 so that our offense can stay on the field.

Packers have Dan Vitale, another Northwestern guy he will move the pile.

I think J Williams fits that description.

Sounds like what Eddie Lacy was supposed to be.

Hopefully he brings a guy in the fourth round with some power to his game. I have mocked Snell at the five pick, but he will end up going higher.

They need to draft Matt Gay kicker from Utah

I am with you Al999...Matt Gay would be a great pick in the 7th round. He could push Crosby. Crosby started to get an attitude and began pointing the finger at everyone but himself. Bad mojo.

Take Tyree Jackson in 3rd
let kizer go

I think Alexander Mattison is good value around RD 5 or later. Tough inside and quick.

MarkinMadison's picture

I kind of like Mike Weber (Ohio St.). He has the lateral quickness and one-cut ability that you want for the outside ZBS. Good vision. Good enough speed. Some catching ability. I think he is a three-down back waiting for the opportunity.

SpurgeonsCigar's picture

Anyone a fan of Josh Jacobs in the first? Especially if they just choose TJ with the 12th..... nice energy for the offense.

MarkinMadison's picture

I don't know that any of these RBs are worth taking in the first round. It's a weak crop.

AgrippaLII's picture

I liked Jacobs until I read his Bio...he's had three MCL injuries so far in his football career. He'd have to slide to the fourth round before I would consider him.

Lphill's picture

Dan Vitale is going to be used a lot this season , he was retained for a reason , was not utilized under MM .

bluegill's picture

i think a running back in the 4th round would be nice as an insurance policy WHEN jones gets hurt....just saying.....

4thand1's picture

You can say that for every position on the team.

Old School's picture

I'd use Williams as the starter and try to keep Jones healthy until Thanksgiving.

AgrippaLII's picture

You can find good value on running backs in just about every round except the first or second...I'm anxious to seeing who LaFleur likes!
