    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.

    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.

    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.

    I thought this guy was a LOT smaller than this. He's a hoss.

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

    Well, that confirms it. We all knew sized mattered a long time ago. :)

    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.

    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.
