Nonetheless, I really like the job of upgrading the front seven... our safety was a good value pick too, and I love the pick of RB Barber from Minn. Does anyone think he could be a faster version of Richie Anderson, given his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield? He is a good special team threat too from what I've read.
Yes, Marion is a really good pick. I thought he would go possibly in 2nd round to at least 3rd round. Really surprised he lasted long. He just made a mistake coming out becaue he would have been little bit overshadowed by Laurance Maroney.
Maroney is like Ronnie Brown of Minnosota tandem. Barber can easily start for a team, so I really like the pick. He does seem slower when playing than his actual timed speed. But he is probably one of those who are deceptively speedy. Since I thought he would be timed around high 4.5 to low 4.6 type. Was surprised at how fast he was timed at in Combine.
