Didn't know PJ Hill decided to declare, he'd be a good late round back to compliment Slaton.
Dont know where they get the 4.5 forty time. At the 2004 State College NIKE Training Camp, LeSean McCoy recorded a 4.25 40 yard dash, the fastest of the event. I know RB is not a huge need and RB's can be found later in the draft that fit the ZB system we use bla bla bla. But if McCoy is available at 15 I would be happy as hell if we took him. His running style is taylor made for us. Him and Slaton would a beautiful thing to watch. There would be no drop off when hes in the game. He might even turn out to be better than Slaton.
Sounds perfect for the texans
P.J. Hill is one of those guys that you would think he could truck or run some guys over, but he doesn't really get enough speed to be the bowling ball type of running back. There's really no explosion in his game.
Same can be said for J. Lane.
Sounds like a Dayne type running back to me.
Small guy mentality, big guy body.
Perfect to NOT be a short yardage type.
That's P.J. Hill in a nutshell.
Actually, it doesn't. PJ Hill is nothing more than a Ron Dayne clone. No more big, slow backs. I'd rather draft a guy like Marlon Lucky in the 4th who has decent size, is good in-between the tackles, and has good hands. He's the perfect compliment imo.
Ware was talking about him this morning because the Texans like Colorado St guys and this guy can do some damage....Gartrell Johnson...6 ft, 225 and he did well this weekend...10 rushed for 63 yards. His system is also one cut and go.
This is a post I made about Gartrell Johnson a few days ago. This guy has to be the odds on favorite to be the backup RB next season.
Sorry, didn't even see this before I wrote above. I like the sound of him...especially with the system we run and they run.
I posted my eval on Johnson on another thread and he is a HOSS.
Good quote. Please support why you think he will go so low. I am hoping you are correct. After Saturday's game he moved up in my view. If we could get him in 4th for example, I'd rather that than my Shonn Green selection in 2nd round.
In 5th or later I agree, but we need first four rounds for other positions including a power back such as Green or Gartrell Johnson.
The only downsides I see with Johnson that will hold him back are the he has had 459 carries over the past two seasons and he doesn't have good, or even average top end speed. That being said, we need a guy who can get the tough yards moreso than someone who is a big play threat. He's expected to run a 4.65 at the combine, and that alone should cement him as a 4th rounder at best. He's compares very favorably to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who the Patriots picked up as an UDFA last season, but ended up starting a few games and having a productive season.
