I like the pick, but I hate giving up the 5th for it.

Default Re: Ben Tate - Auburn RB

So we trade 51 for 62 + 93 (3rd rounder)

Vikes select Toby Gerhart

Then we trade 62 + 150 for 58 and grab Tate

We had to do this in order to keep Tate out of Cleveland and Seattle (Said to be looking for him. Cleveland just took the last big back right after us)

So we end up Getting Tate + a 3rd and only give up a 5th. Nice job Smith

Default Re: Ben Tate - Auburn RB

great pick and great move by smith/kubiak ... added a 3rd, lost a 5th, and got our RB in the second. jumped back up ahead of cleveland who probably would've gone tate instead of hardesty.

May be good, but Jonathan Dwyer still on board and more highly rated.

Tate seems to have durability and speed and hits the line hard.

I love the pick and don't mind giving up a fifth for him. Gooselin has repeadtedly stated that the talent in this draft was only about three rounds deep.

He was my second choice after Toby, and after +3 and -5, can't complain too much.

Default Re: Ben Tate RB Auburn- 2nd round selection

A- in my opinion. We need a back, but I dislike the trade back. But you know what, I am not going to cry over spilt milk anymore. Tate is the new back, Gerhart is a Viking.

Ben Tate, good luck, and welcome to Houston!

Default Re: Ben Tate RB Auburn- 2nd round selection

Smith really got pretty lucky finding a trade partner in NE.

If we hadn't traded up, Seatle and or Cleveland would have taken the backs, and left us with nothing.

I also can't believe the Vikings gave up a 3rd to move 12 spots ahead in the 2nd round.

Steal for us


Doubt we'll go DT in the 3rd though. Theres been like 20 drafted already

Rashad Jones next to carry on the SEC trend?

I like the Tate pick, even though I am a Dwyer guy, myself. I hope we grab another CB and RB later in this draft.
