Default sleeper RB's

Gary Russell and Brandon Jackson

Both have prototypical size for a RB and both should clock in a decent time in the 4.5 area for the 40yd.

jackson split time with 3 other RB's and should be available in the 5th unless he really blazes in the 40yd. Russell should be there in the 4th after sitting out a year. put up some big numbers while splitting time with maroney at minny.

just in case peterson doesnt get to us or we pass on him for some reason.

1-Laron Landry
2-Chris Houston
3-Kareem Brown
4-Brandon Frye
5-Brandon Jackson

With Landry and Houston, we should have a pretty good secondary. Kareem Brown applies pressure from the inside and frees up Mario. Frye is a decently mobile OL who has some upside. Jackson has a decent blend of size and speed and can catch the ball out of the backfield.

Completely agree on Brandon Jackson, I've seen him play afew times this year and I like what I see. He has potential, but was stuck behind a VERY crowded backfield. He has good size and decent speed, and can get people to miss. He's a great receiver out of the backfield as well which is what Carr loves. I think he goes in the 4th which I definitely wouldn't mind giving up for him!

I've heard a little about Alonzo Coleman from Hampton and he sounds like a decent late round option. He is here this week for the Shrine game so you can watch him this weekend, I've heard he's pretty solid allround as well, and being from a small school like that he is more likely to fall. However, looking for these sleeper RBs will likely leave us with another Wali Lundy type that is ok in a limited role but not suited to be a true #1 RB that we need. Kubiak and Rick Smith did spend time in Denver where they frequently found later round sleepers and had success with them, so I trust them to be able to find a contributing-caliber RB in the later rounds to at least come in and compete for a roster spot. However, I think we have enough of those contributing-type RBs and need someone that can be a major impact, so as long as they're not trusting in that system too much and relying on it to find a late round sleeper to carry our offense and ignoring real talents in the earlier rounds then I'd be fine with it.

I've had my eye on Coleman. He does have some solid numbers in college, 4600 rushing yards and 63 TDs so he does have a nose for goal line. Rumor is he runs in the 4.3s and he is invited to the combine, so we will see. Mork if you do make it to practice it would be great to read what you think of this kid.

I don't consider a trafficer any better than a toker. It means that he is still stupid enough to deal with the stuff. 5lbs of dro don't just show up in your car without you being associated with it to begin with. What report did you read that specificly said that no weed was found in his blood?

Germane Race of Pittsburgh State. Obviously, the level of competition he plays against can be put in to question, however anytime someone 107 touchdowns in their career deserves some kind of recognition. This is a guy who's career LOW was 17 as a freshman, only starting 8 games. He "regressed" this year with 31 touchdowns, in contrast to the 33 he scored last season. His power and ability to run between the tackles is excellent, and at worst case scenario, I see him being a very good goalline back/3rd down specialist.

Another one who I think translates as a better pro HB than he did on the college level is Tyrone Moss.

Race is the guy I have been trying to think of. I think he is going to be a stud in the NFL.

What about Kenny Irons?? he's going to be there in the second....... he's a proven workhorse...... & he's very comparable to Tatum Bell & Clinton Portis... I think.

Auburn's recent track record with HBs has been very good.. I could see Irons sliding up in to the low first truthfully, and would grade him the 3rd best HB in the draft.

I agree.

I know some people will use the "small school" arguement, but the Saints currently have two starters who last season were starters for Hofstra and Bloomsburg (PA) State. Walter Payton didn't exactly play Texas, Penn State and Alabama every week while putting up quality numbers at Jackson State. Neither did Jerry Rice at Mississippi Valley State. Good players are good players.

Yeah, and Bill Clinton didn't inhale either.

It like when Michael Irvin got caught late at night in an apartment with a minor girl and cocaine. It doesn't matter that Michael didn't partake; he shouldn't have been there in the first place. When Michael walked in the door and saw white powder on the coffee table he should have just back his butt back out the door. But instead, Michael decided to put his professional career in jeopardy and hang out with the guys for a little while.

So what if weed was or wasn't in Taylorís system, it shouldn't have been in his car either.

ight put this through your head, you and your boys go to a party in your car, one of them has a back pack, you don't ask why hes got it cause maybe hes one of those guys that always carries it around, the police come cause your causin a disturbance (and ill put that on RT, no excuses there), they search your car, they find a back pack full of weed, your not gonna snitch cause its your boy so all of yall just play it off like you dont know were it came from, and thats what happened, hes not a bad dude, and i will guarantee that he aint gonna get in anymore trouble
