    Ajayi should have been @least a 2nd rounder...but hey people blasted me for when he slide to the 5th. Told you knuckleheads this kid could play. Now just think....if we had taken Ajayi in the 4th round...there wouldn't have been no need to reach for the groper in the 1st in last years draft.:rolleyes:

    Randle and the rest of the backs "failed" in 2015 because there was no semblance of a passing attack. Despite that fact, the offensive line took a washed-up running back coming off a string of seasons averaging between 3.3-3.4 YPC and allowed him to finish the season with a 4.3 YPC.

    I think they're coming back in vogue because teams are playing quarterbacks earlier than they used to. And most rookie, first-, second-year quarterbacks just aren't ready. So you need a workhorse to shoulder the load and - if a stud running back - someone to make defensive reads easier for a young quarterback. Eight-men fronts take one more defensive guy out of pass defense, making it easier for the quarterback.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if the Jags take Fournette or Cook. And I'd be shocked if Carolina passes on either. Cam may be bigger and stronger than your average quarterback, but he can't continue to take the hits that he does as a running target. Fournette or Cook in the backfield with him and those tall receivers? Carolina's offense would return to being scary good.

    Woodhead will not stop the Raven's from picking McCaffrey (if they want him) any more than Terrance Flagler stopped the Cowboys from drafting Emmitt Smith. ;)

    In other Philly news.................. the same host that had Kiper on last week said this week he thinks the Eagles will take Barnett if he's there, not Cook or a CB.

    If they were smart they'd draft Fournette if he's there. A quality RB would help out Wentz. Actually, now that I think of it, Fournette wouldn't be the guy because in Pedersen's scheme the RB is heavily involved as a pass catcher. Fournette ain't that guy.

    Calling it early; McCafferey to the Eagles.

    I like Dalvin Cook, but apparently not as much as most draft prognosticators. From what I've seen, I would have him rated fifth best as running back, behind Fournette, Mixon, McCaffrey, and Kamara.

    Mixon may not be draftable for off the field issues, and I wouldn't have a problem leaving him off the board.

    I think McCaffrey has much better feet, and better hands than Cook, and is marginally faster (at least it looked that way at the combine, on the same field/same day), although Cook is ~10 pounds heavier.

    I think Kamara offers a lot of the same attributes as Cook, but is a little more explosive.

    And I think Fournette is the best of all of them.

    Fournette is a lock to Jacksonville imo

    Disagree. I think Cook's the most explosive back in this draft. There appears to be a McCaffrey movement right now and he may be the 2nd back taken in the draft but I'd much rather have Cook.

    I wanted Ramsey and switched to Zeke so many times just like this year, but at the end I wanted Zeke. This year I'm torn on Baker, Adoree and King.

    I caught a draft guy from NBC on the radio this weekend and said Cook's slipping because of his poor combine results. That his results would put him in the bottom 10% of RBs tested and no RB that tested like he did has been drafted in the first round since they've been tracking these results.

    Mel today - I think Reddick has a shot to be a top 10 pick. At worst top 15.

    Crazy how Reddick has blown up since the Senior Bowl. Between he and Tyus Bowser, there are two utility LBers that will probably flourish in a 3-4.

    I could see Bowser taken by the Patriots if they hadn't traded their first for Brandon Cooks.

    They could still end up getting one back if the Saints do the trade for Butler.
