I wanted Dennis Johnson in the sixth, my guess is hell stick as a 3rd back. Like Klien also.

Just watched the rb's we signed and it's gonna be a tough competition between them. They each bring something good to the table. I think Winn is my favorite though, but not by much. I like what I saw from them all.

I'd give it to Cierre Wood right now.
He and Dennis Johnson had faced tougher competitions.
Johnson needs to correct his ball security issue, otherwise, I think it would be Wood as many of us in the Mock Draft forum had talked about.

I like the idea of Colin Klein at TE, he was my 7th round pick is my first mock as a TE. In a year or two he could be really good.

Didn't know much about graham but this from Espn:

Possesses nimble and quick feet along with upper echelon lateral agility. Displays an effective jump cut that covers a lot of ground laterally and can consistently avoid backfield penetration. Has the suddenness and elusiveness as runner to make defenders miss in a confined area. Also can stop-and-start instantly to freeze defenders. Shows a quick short-area burst through the hole and can get to top-end speed quickly out of cuts. Flashes ability to string together multiple cuts when working through traffic. However, can be moving too quick for his own good at times and will lose balance when trying to make a cut at top-end speed on occasion. Lacks an elite extra gear and will struggle to outrun pursuit and hit the home run at the next level.

http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft/player/_/id/29995

Sounds a bit like Forsett

I like the guys that I bolded, and really like the fact we signed Johnny Adams. Adams will probably move to SS and reminds me of Glover Quinn.

Cierre Wood reminds one of another Notre Dame back Allen Pinkett. Stocky, quicker than fast with limited long speed.

Forgot Klein was a senior this year. Ran more of a zone read at Kstate but its not for lack of a strong arm. Guy is a superb athlete who would kill teams on roll outs and bootlegs. I'd love to see him make the team at QB.. Easily has most upside of any qb we have, infortunately also by far the most raw.

7 tackles going forward, i don't think it'll be too hard to whittle the number down.

Woods nice signing along with johnson.

Reed probably swings inside, i'd like to have seen more depth added at ILB though.

Anyone else notice Pocic C is listed at 6-7 & 310?!

From 76's link:

Quote:
For five years, Johnson has been a household name amongst Razorback fans. Since breaking the school record for kick return yards in a season and earning a spot on the SEC All-Freshman team, Johnson's motor hasn't stopped running. At 5'9" and 213 lb, Johnson is quite a load to bring down. Just ask SEC defenses, who often needed a group effort to wrangle the bullish running back several yards after initial contact (he averaged 5.9 yards/carry for his career). He ran an official 4.47 40 at his pro day and is very explosive within the first 10 yards
Dayum! I think I like the guy already. This is the SEC and a shoddy line!

7 tackles going forward, i don't think it'll be too hard to whittle the number down.

Woods nice signing along with johnson.

Reed probably swings inside, i'd like to have seen more depth added at ILB though.

Anyone else notice Pocic C is listed at 6-7 & 310?!
IMHO, Klein is never gonna make it as an NFL QB.
An emergency QB, yes.
A wildcat QB, may be.
And if he works really hard and improves his QBing skills tremendously, the we can start talking about a back-up position.

He's a good athlete and a good college QB though.
