Add best FB to the list.
Height / Weight:

Had a 4th round grade in some places.
Not what I expected but I think we're starting to see this offense develop and it's going to be brutal.
I like it! Arian & Blue will like this guy! Excellent blocker & receiver!
these picks on offense tell me that o'brien wants to be able to finish games with the lead on the ground and be more dangerous in the redzone. seems wise.
Old school FB. Dude will clear lanes for the runningbacks.
I think we are going to be running the ball a ton.
This guy drives through would be tacklers and for big guy has pretty decent feet and swivle
He's beefing up the running game as best he can at this point. I like it.

Touching story. Can't help but root for him
My thoughts as well
My thoughts echo. Unexpected pick, but when i saw size and reports... This team looks to be physical next year.
Methinks our days of "finesse" are over. (Finally!)

Blocking is a recurring theme in this draft for us, we even took one of the best blocking tight ends in the third. It seems obvious that the team has accepted that there isn't a great option for us at QB this season, but we're going to make it tough for teams to get to our quarterback.
Plus our defense will be out there to give Fitz as many chances with the football as possible. Gonna need that with all the picks he throws.
On a serious SEC run. And who let Jim Harbaugh into our draft room? Looks like the Texans are going ground and pound, not Patriots spread.
I like ground and pound
Yeah I liked the Kubiak run scheme but this is a nice change.
Zone running schemes are much less effective as the NFL has transitioned into more 3-4 defenses and also due to rule changes that limit when and where cut blocks can be used. I also think a power running system is a better fit to allow for pre-snap audibles, to create personnel issues with substitution packages, and to create big play abilities in the play-action passing game. I know play-action is a huge part of the ZBS, but it was a staple of the offense (therefore a focus of the defense)... Also, with all the boot action, it allowed the secondary to eliminate huge chunks of the field. Effective power running will cause safeties to react downhill to play action even if they are not assigned to the box... creating over the top opportunities from one sideline to the other.
All that is to say that I doubt the plan is a conservative one- just a physical one.
.....and he is DURABLE.
