    Would You Draft Garrett Wolfe?

    Why or Why Not?

    And If You Would, In Which Round?

    I'd draft him yes, but not above the fourth round right now. He is extremely undersized and has only had one good year.

    256 carries 1656 yrds 6.5 ypc 84 Long 18 TDs

    2005
    242 carries 1580 yrds 6.5 ypc 76 Long 16 TDs

    2006 (so far)
    156 carries 1343 yrds 8.6 ypc 75 Long 13 TDs

    ----

    If you wanna call that "1" good year then by all means go ahead but that looks like 3 to me and no history of injuries.

    He was not bad in the years past. I know he is not playing against the best D's week in week out, but he has done real good this year, and not bad other years.


    I would want to draft him, but I don't know in what round.

    He did pretty good against Ohio State's defense, and he was their main target.

    [Wolfe] totaled 171 yards on the ground and had five catches for 114 yards.

    Yeah, I'd take him, first chance the Texans get. He has great speed and lateral movement, something the Texans sorely lack. However, based on highlights from the OSU game, he looks to enjoy picking his holes. I'm not sure if that will work in the Texans system.

    he's undersized and isn't built for the NFL.

    I think he's P-I-M-P, but I think he'd be another DD :crying:

    5-7 and 177 pounds.

    Barry Sanders: 5-6, 206 pounds

    There's a difference, but not enough to make me think he won't be able to contribute. At the very least, the way this guy can explode off the ball, he could tear up the place as a returner.

    Was DD in college? What I meant was that he'll take a beating in the NFL, not sure how durable he will be.

    I would take him over Peterson right now, but I have mixed feelings about the NFL.

    I'm a Buckeye, I was ticked how many yards we gave up, until I watched him in subsequent games and realized we DID restrict him.

    I like him, and definately would draft him. He's a producer, and unlike the rest of his team, a winner. But no way would I take him earlier than the 3rd.

    He is tearing up the MAC, and will probably continue to do so. But it is obvious to me that the talent is there. He reminds of Reggie Bush, but is smaller.

    How long before we start comparing Peterson and Wolfe?

    seems like every year some small back gets the "what about barry sanders?" question, and they always disappear.

    besides, sanders was a tank. wolfe is a scrawny little thing.

    Yep. 177 is no where near 206.

    "he's tearing up the mac"

    yeah...um...did you guys see him play the #1 team in the country, Ohio State? He ran for like 170 yards on them...He has pro potential..probably as a Kick/punt returner and scatback/#3 WR..obviously 170 is about 40-50 pounds too small to be a 15-20 carries a game RB in the pros.

    Wolfe just had 25 yards against Western Mich. Did anybody see what happened?

    Looks like he has Reggie Bush syndrom, every run in the high-light clip against OSU was to the outside.

    I think he means in regards to college production. And seeing as AP is missing his collar bone, i would take wolfe too :bananasplit:
