Can't say I know a lot about him. I am a little surprised that we did not go ILB or DB. Seems like a decent pick though.

Default Re: Alfred Blue, RB, LSU

I actually like Blue...SOlid down hill runner...Catches the ball well...Gan get tough yardage and can knock out some big gains if he gets space...

He's just a solid grind it out player.

He was a fan favorite at LSU.

There isn't a pick so far we've made that I don't like including this one. Not the greatest measurables, but I like how he plays football.

JMO.

Not who I expected or who I would have picked.

McStupid should be ignored. As far as 6th round picks go, this guy is just fine.

Edit - the McStupid thing was meant about McClain. Since everyone is so damn defensive around here lately, I just though I'd say that before I started another flaming war.

Size matters to OB. 6'3" beat out 5'9".

Or was that 9 5/8 beating out 9 1/4 ?

Rules 1 through 10 for running backs.

DON'T DROP THE BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Rotoworld:


Quote:
NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah notes LSU senior RB Alfred Blue "is a smooth, gliding runner with excellent hands."

Speaking of Blue, Jeremiah observed the running back "lacks ideal stop/start quicks but he finishes every run."

McClain is in fact an idiot, but I like Seastrunk better in this offense as well as a compliment to the backs we have right now. I guess they feel comfortable with Dennis Johnson as a change of pace back if he's kept on the roster.

Who calls for the GM to be fired over a 6th round pick? As if McNeckroll scouted 500+ players.

Even most draftniks generally don't know much outside of the 150-200 most high profile prospects, and McLizardneck is certainly not anything close to a draftnik.

Dan Shonka's scouting report...
Quote:
Played in 40 games with seven starts in four years. Played in a three back rotation including Jeremy Hill this past year. Carried the load in the first game of 2013 versus TCU when Hill was suspended. He rushed for 89 yards on 19 carries. A big downhill I-formation back who runs with power and strength. Hits the whole hard and drives his legs. A developing prospect with size and draftable qualities.

Default Re: Alfred Blue, RB, LSU

I wonder which of the three RB profiles Blue was drafted for?

I don't like drafting RBs as a principle.

Nothing against this guy though seems talented and to be a system fit.
