Default Running Back

Are there any good RB's to draft today?

With Ben Tate gone, we need a solid back-up to Foster.

I like Seastrunk as an off back. Also wouldn't be pissed about Storm.

David Fluellen from Toledo is a late round guy who fits the Patriots style of RB. Not sure if that means he fits O'Brien but he might be a guy to keep an eye on.

I'm still hoping for Flanders. I think he'd be a good replacement for Forsett and could be a weapon to spell Foster from time to time.

32 3/8"
ARM LENGTH
223LBS.
WEIGHT
9 7/8"
HANDS
OVERVIEW
2013: Played in all 13 games with two starts. Rushed for season-high 89 yards and career-high 19 carries in win over TCU to open the season. 2012: Started first three games before torn ACL ended his season. Started season with back-to-back 100-yard games (123 vs. North Texas; 101 and touchdown vs. Washington). 2011: Played in 12 games with one start. Missed Arkansas game with injury. 2010: Played 11 games with one start.
ANALYSIS
STRENGTHS Terrific size and musculature. Inside-outside ability. Nice vision, instincts and patience. Has good speed for a back his size -- opens up his stride in the clear. Strong runner -- heavy on contact. Powers through arm tackles and runs with forward lean. Wields an effective stiff-arm. Looks to have good hands in limited exposure. Flashes playmaking ability. Has tread on his tires -- averaged just 52 carries per season at LSU. Has experience in a pro-style offense and on special teams. Clear upside.
WEAKNESSES Average initial quickness and lateral agility. Smoother than he is explosive. Can run with more consistent intensity and pad level on a carry-by-carry basis -- does not always run angry or lower his pads. Shows some stiffness as a route runner. Weak in pass protection -- needs to improve willingness, awareness, technique and physicality. Was never the feature back at LSU (seven career starts). Suffered a torn ACL in 2012. Made controversial, homophobic remarks and maturity should be looked into.
BOTTOM LINE Blue looks the part and would have been the No. 1 back at most schools given his combination of size, speed, power and competitiveness. Is a second-round talent on physical ability alone, but injury and a stacked stable of LSU runners limited Blue’s opportunity to shine. Scheme-versatile runner who is a prime candidate to elevate his stock prior to the draft and be a far more productive pro than college player.

Clowney's probably the 2nd best RB on the team. 0:38

We drafted the best running back if you care about potential. Otherwise, you're right.

What we do know about Blue is that he is probably the fastest of the four LSU backs and he is hands down the best running back at catching the ball out of the backfield and using his speed to break free from opposing defenders. He has 4.4 40-yard-dash speed, but he is also able to use his 215-pound frame to run between the tackles if called upon to do so.

Not sure if accurate but hopefully he will increase speed a bit.
