I would take similar pathway as the Cushing pick last draft, just that this time its on the offensive side & no I don't want to bring in Larry Johnson (who may or may not save you a top pick).
Toby is a playmaking stud powerback without fumbling issues, is an excellent blocker, high charcter & excellent teammate. Above all he is a football player just like Cushing & nobody is bashing that pick anymore
You are preaching to the choir. I was the first one to pimp out Gerhart on these boards, and I would have no problem taking him in the first. I could redo my mock if you think that would be more accurate. However, I think he could drop, because he wont run below a 4.5 at the combine.
Let me re-iterate;
Toby Gerhart is my favorite back in the draft, and the player I want the Texans select.
