I don't agree...everyone trivializes the rb position, but look how awful the team was without murray
Big fan of Ball.
I'm thinking 3rd or 4th, second too high. Draft scout has him end round 2 FWIW.
62 Montee Ball RB 3 Wisconsin Sr 5-11 214 2
I would put that mostly on the o-line.Murray has to work incredibly hard to earn yards and he repeatedly gets hit in the back field .
If we took an Olineman in Rd 1,
assuming the value was right, I'd want at 47:
RB or WR
I think the meat of the RB draft class in in rounds 3 and 4
Round 2 and 3 is full of really good WRs, but that need is low relatively speaking....certainly way lower than the other positions listed.
But give me Dline, Oline, or Saefty before them in Rd if the quality is there.
I want no part of Ball. I hope this is just the usual pre draft smokescreen.
We weren't exactly a juggernaught with Murray...
Would be a bad pick. I think it's a smokescreen.
A large portion of it is IMO.
I can hear Jerry now "gotta get Ball the ball"... lol
He'd probably say, "We need to take a RB by committee approach. We need two Balls to be successful!"
NOOOOO!!!! I want LaVeon Bell
I dont believe it
I really don't have a big problem with it. The backup running back is hugely important to us considering what else we have right now. I like Ball ... I'd like him better in the third ... but if our scouts have him rated in that spot then go for it.
Yeah, people don't want to get him in round 2 because all the mock drafts have him going in round 3 or 4 so they see it as a bad pick. However, if the teams actually have him as a second rounder (as I suspect many do), then taking him in the second is where you'd have to in order to actually get the guy.
Our Lad's Final Top 100 players:
No Monte Ball to found in the top 100 and at least 4-5 RBs ahead of him
Not saying it's right or not, but it shows what many others think, that Ball is amore of a 3rd or 4th round prospect.
Like someone said above, Draft Scout likes him better and has him at 62.
GBN Draft report ranks him 72.
In the end though, it always comes down to how each team values the player.
Im confused...do people want bpa or not? Bpa means bpa...not please take this one position no matter what.
We have holes (some bigger than others) at the following positions:
Og, oc, ot, wr, te, rb, 1tech, 3tech, de, s, olb.
Thats a lot of holes, and a lot of options for bpa. In the first round you have to concentrate on more pressing needs (ol, s, dt) so you put a little more weight there...but by 2nd round if youre truly interested in bpa you can take almost any position unless youre stacked with young players or stars in nonrotation areas (for us thats qb and cb...and thats it).
Zac Stacy would be an interesting pick in late rounds
