    I don't think Kareem Hunt ever fumbled in his career.

    Not really getting into watching Hunt since Dallas won't draft him as high as he is going to go.

    But that is pretty remarkable. He will probably go before other more hyped backs like Freeman and Gallman.

    I would not mind grabbing another one in the sixth though. Jamaal Williams would be optimal there. Dayes interests me too.

    I'm definitely open minded to a back late. I was kind of hoping Jackson would stick as the backup long term.

    That was another mistake by our front office.

    In hindsight, the idea to bring McFadden back which allowed him to get exposed on waivers was hardly worth it.

    I don't think those two guys are being that hyped. I am seeing some projections as low as the 6th round for Gallman and 4th for Freeman.

    Now they are. A month ago, Freeman was considered at worst fourth and some still have him in their top 50. Now players like Hunt and Kamara are getting more steam.

    Taquan "Smoke" Mizzell and TJ Logan are guys Ive seen play a bunch. Both are ballers. And would be easy replacements for Dunbar.

    Do people have last year's draft class fumble rates? Would be interesting to see how they fared as rookies.

    T.J Logan from UNC is pretty fast. Can return kicks as well

    I would have cut Dunbar or Morris to bring McFadden back online. They must have really not cared much for the rookie or been super confident he would clear waivers and make it back to the practice squad.

    I can see that also, I hated seeing Jackson go.
