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.

I'm withholding judgment.

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.

Oh, wow. I misread something.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Default Re: Alfred Blue, RB, LSU

I knew nothing about him before the pick. I like what I'm reading about him though. Solid downhill runner that catches the ball out of the backfield, he's built like Adrian Peterson & he doesn't fumble the football. He has had injury concerns and was never the main back at LSU, but for a 6th rounder: I like the pick.

Hey, I just quote the information. LOL

I watched some highlights of him on ytube, and he looks nice in his films. But I don't seem to remember any highlights of him catching a pass now that I think about it.

Blue caught the ball well at his pro day. Which we now know is what's most important.
