    With another speedy RB to hand off to in 2008-2009, probably not JJo, this would be one tremendous backfield...

    I'd really like to get him end of the 3rd round. I'm not sure he lasts until the mid-end of the 4th round.

    Heck, didn't we use a 2nd round for Moose when he came out of Syracuse?

    Just because it's the FB position doesn't mean we have to use a 5-7th rounder . . . . I think this guy would be an instant starter for us. Plus, I bet he could play on ST. I know FB isn't the most sexy position, but I also think this guy may be able to play some H-Back in time, pushing up his value.

    If you can get a starter and the end of the 3rd round (assuming he's still there) and if there is value there, that's not too bad.

    With the way our run blocking has been going, we could use a FB.

    I would love to have this battering ram leading any back of ours into the hole,plus he can catch,pick up blitzes, and has unusual speed for such a monster of a full back, he is projected to go in the third or fourth round, but I wouldnt expect he falls far enough to get to us in the fourth so second or third would be great for what I expect to make a big difference in sombodies running game.

    MBIII's running style and Schmitt's blocking would put the "P" in physical. Not to mention our massive OL.

    "He can squat 650 pounds"

    Bill Parcells will get him with the number one pick.

    That would just further add to my current love for Parcells.

    I'm don't think he'll be there for our pick in the third, but I'm hoping that Wade's experience with Lorenzo Neal has made him aware of what this kind of FB could do for our running game.

    He impressed me. I would love to see him wearing the Dallas Star.

    This is where the huddle report has him currently ranked.

    Yeah, after that Bowl game, I bet he will. But ESPN, was always talking about him, in the games I saw.

    The guy is awesome looking, i.e. in mean SOB kind of way :D

    I subscribed to draftinsiders, and they have him going near the end of the 3rd round.

    I think somewhere around the 3rd sounds about right. But he could easily go in the top of the 3rd . . . .
