Default Le'veon Bell and Kenyon Barner

If BJGE and Bernard Scott are not back next year, how about a backfield of a hammer like Le'veon Bell to wear defenses down....then send in a speedster like Kenyon Barner to take it to the house! I'm not sure where these backs are projected...maybe late 2nd round for Barner and 4th round for Bell?

I'm just not sold on Gilleslee. Not sure why cause he did have a good game against FSU, but I'm just not buying the hype yet.
Taylor is one of my favorites. I do not watch that much college ball, but every week I go to cfbs.com. They have a button that you push for 'vs. ranked opponents' and Taylor has the most games vs. ranked opponents and is averaging 100+ per game with decent yards / carry. He is consistently good.

I do not think there are any 1st round picks this year at RB.

Yea, I agree. But RBs will start to jump off the board in the 2nd.

Giovanni Bernard
Joseph Randle
Stepfan Taylor
Le'veon Bell
Kenjon Barner
Johnathan Franklin
Mike Gillislee
Montee Ball

I am not saying all these guys will go in the second, or even third or fourth, but its a good group of RBs. I would take anyone of them too. My tops are Bernard, Taylor, Barner, Gillislee.

Cannot agree with the run you over part either. I have seen way to many cases of him being brought down on first contact. The thing I like least about him is he seems to need very wide running lanes to create big plays.

They are the same guy only one is bigger. North/South runners with no wiggle or make you miss capabilities.

I agree. And it looks like we are going to have a very high pick in the second round.

I still can't believe how well that all worked out.

Same here. I would love to get him and a shifty little speed back in this draft.

Both he and Taylor looked good last night. Franklin had huge holes to run through. Taylor was having to squeeze through very small openings - but was doing it. He runs really hard once he clears the line of scrimmage and is a handful to bring down.

Franklin really accelerates once he gets in the open. I really like his speed.

I think Lacy has a very good shot of jumping to the top of the class with a strong combine and pro day; assuming he comes out.

I'm a huge Lacy fan and would have no problem grabbing him at the top of 2 with the Oaktown pick, or even trading back and taking him in the 20s.

Yeldon could end up being an AP type talent.

Montee Ball is on fire tonight. Could be worth a 3rd.

Johnathan Franklin had 19 carries for 194 yards, 2 TD's.
Montee Ball has 18 carries for 194 yards, 3 TD's.... and there are 9 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

That Wisconsin offensive line is dominating... but Ball is still very good.

I think when its all said and done Lacy will be the top ranked HB this year. Unless he runs a putrid 40 I can't see him making it very deep into the 2nd if he even makes it that far.

Every time I watch him his stock goes up in my mind. I'm leaning towards wanting him in the 1st.

Take Montee Ball in round 2. Sign Felix Jones. There is your duo.

Why do you want us to never have a healthy COP back?
