    personally he kinda reminds me of an MJD type runner. Tough and tough to bring down.

    He'd be a great pickup but I don't think we'll go RB earlier than the 3rd. Probably not even then unless we get an extra 3rd somewhere. He'd probably do great here but I just can't see him being a priority.

    I believe we're picking middle of the 2nd this year, so hopefully he falls down that far. He'd be the perfect back for us to spell Slaton. I'm sure we can find someone else, but he is the hot pick right now.

    I can see him going in the first to a team like the Patriots or the Cardinals. I don't think he's Maurice Jones Drew, but he'd be perfect for someone who wants a 2 back system.

    The kid from Maryland looks good. I'm not sure what year he is

    Green is a very nice prospect, but Kubiak ain't gonna ask McNair to pay 2nd or 3rd round $$$ on a back that will only get 10-13 touches a game. We'll probably grab say Foster or Davis in the 4th(if they fall that far).:fans:

    reminds me a little of Marion Barber, kinda shifty, lacks explosive gear so when it comes down to it would just as soon put his head down & run over the guy/ guess that means he could be the power back. however I'd like to see more game film & have a better feel for his footwork in the hole in tight space.

    Seemed slow getting through the hole but ran with good (not great) power. I have only watched most of the first half so far but that was my impression of him.
