Best FB.

Had a 4th round grade in some places.

Not what I expected but I think we're starting to see this offense develop and it's going to be brutal.

these picks on offense tell me that o'brien wants to be able to finish games with the lead on the ground and be more dangerous in the redzone. seems wise.

Old school FB. Dude will clear lanes for the runningbacks.

I think we are going to be running the ball a ton.

This guy drives through would be tacklers and for big guy has pretty decent feet and swivle

He's beefing up the running game as best he can at this point. I like it.

My thoughts echo. Unexpected pick, but when i saw size and reports... This team looks to be physical next year.

Blocking is a recurring theme in this draft for us, we even took one of the best blocking tight ends in the third. It seems obvious that the team has accepted that there isn't a great option for us at QB this season, but we're going to make it tough for teams to get to our quarterback.

Plus our defense will be out there to give Fitz as many chances with the football as possible. Gonna need that with all the picks he throws.

On a serious SEC run. And who let Jim Harbaugh into our draft room? Looks like the Texans are going ground and pound, not Patriots spread.

Yeah I liked the Kubiak run scheme but this is a nice change.

A transfer from Illinois, where he earned Freak status for power cleaning more than 400 pounds, the 255-pound fullback has impressed the Auburn folks on the field and in the weight room. Earlier this spring, Prosch broke the Tigers record in the power clean that was previously held by Jay Ratliff and Ronnie Brown when they each did two reps at 371. Prosch did his power-clean double at 380. And, Auburn strength coach Kevin Yoxall said that was after Prosch had just come off surgery. Prosch also was electronically timed at 4.72 in the 40. "He's well over 250 and he looks like he weighs 230," said Yoxall, adding that people probably should've known the guy was blessed with some great genetics all the way back to when he was a toddler. Yoxall's proof: he saw a picture of a young Prosch at 7 holding up some big fish he'd caught. "He was jacked at 7 years old."

Zone running schemes are much less effective as the NFL has transitioned into more 3-4 defenses and also due to rule changes that limit when and where cut blocks can be used. I also think a power running system is a better fit to allow for pre-snap audibles, to create personnel issues with substitution packages, and to create big play abilities in the play-action passing game. I know play-action is a huge part of the ZBS, but it was a staple of the offense (therefore a focus of the defense)... Also, with all the boot action, it allowed the secondary to eliminate huge chunks of the field. Effective power running will cause safeties to react downhill to play action even if they are not assigned to the box... creating over the top opportunities from one sideline to the other.

All that is to say that I doubt the plan is a conservative one- just a physical one.
