Both of their tackles would have gone in the top 20 this year

Punched a fool? Who are you? Mr. T?

I gotta admit that I spit out my Mountain Dew when I saw that.

jake matthews would have been a top 15 pick had he come out this year and will most likely be the top pick if the other bama tackle doesnt come out next year

Michael had a better YPC this year than Lattimore.

Pretty torn on this guy. I love the talent. But I would rather not poison the locker room with a malcontent.

He had .1 yard higher than Lattimore who also had 55 more carries and was coming off a major injury, Michael may have been also, neither of them can stay healthy.

Honestly I don't want either one of these guys, neither can stay healthy, throw in Michaels attitude and I think we can find much better options at RB.

I would take him all day long. He is going to start moving up the boards. It would be fun to hear why the coaches were mad at him.

Throw in Tommy Bohanon at FB with a comp 7th rounder and we are good to go.

If Michael impresses our coaching staff with everything they are looking at,especially Hue Jackson and Jay Gruden, he will be a bengal.All the stuff about punching someone and getting hurt will not stop them from taking him.How many times did any of you punch someone when you were 21 years old.A bunch.Dude went through alot of coaching changes at college and getting a broken leg playing shows me he is balling-out.A leg will mostly heal stronger.Its the knees that are bad.This guy LOOKS THE PART, no doubt.IF our staff picks him, it will be because he deserves it and I will be very happy.I really like it that he has an attitude.Shows he has fire in him and Hue Jackson is the man to channel that into touchdowns.I like this guy if he passes the attitude test and I do believe he will.I see him being gone after the second round.I do like the pick.

Definitely would like to see Bohanon drafted with a comp pick. Dude is a more complete FB than Pressley.

Michael definitely impressed at the combine. Would like to hear him address any character questions during his interviews.

Franklin impressed, as did Gio. Le'veon Bell really worked hard for the combine and impressed as well. Montee Ball, on the other hand, was very unimpressive.

I'm warming up to him, not liking his flags, would like to hear how he answers the questions about all of that, but otherwise seems like a later round steal.

Get a clue. He had a much more limited role this season because of problems between him and the new staff. His talent has zero to do with his draft projection. Wow, is all that can be said.

A career average of 5.2ypc and a blistering 3.2ypc in the Shrine game. Was it the ACL or broken leg he was coming off of last year? Because I don't like how his ypc dipped from 6 in 2011 to 4.7 last year.

I'm trying to like him. Everybody knows elite measurables don't necessarily translate to production, but some people seem to have forgotten that.

As you know it he is one of the guys that I would take. I still like Lattimore, and I would take the 2 of them in the draft with 0 questions asked.

Cause he is definately the most physically gifted and arguably the most talented RB in the draft and can probably be had for a late 3rd.

I hope for our sake the 2 meetings he missed were with Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

So you want a guy who has had injuries, problems with coaches, and missed meetings in the biggest job interview of his life? What in the hell makes you think he would change?

Nothing. If I knew he was gonna change I'd take him at 21. He was healthy enough to participate in the combine. That's better than Lacy, right?

Brandon Ghee was an ironman in college, comes from a solid military family, and showed true heart by hanging around the NFL Draft until his name was called. We took him in the 3rd.
