Not saying we should draft him, just an observation I made when looking at the RB prospects for this years draft. I think he has slightly more burst than Murray had, but Murray actually had some good speed in college too before putting on weight for the NFL.

No, we should definitely draft him. You can say it lol. He'd be a solid day 2 pick.

Yup Murray ran a 4.3 in 2011, but at about 200 pounds. I always though he went to bulky. He got up to 230 I believe. I think 215 would have been his sweet spot

And, Charbonnet doesn’t need to add weight like Murray did since he’s already around 220

Reminds me of Ekeler.

If not Bijon at 26, I'd be happy with Charbonet in the 2nd round.

Depends if Charbonnet wants to be more physical in the NFL or not. He gets by a little more with jukes and stutter steps, Murray wasn't afraid of running through a tackle or putting his head down and going into a defender even in college. I think that's why Murray put on some extra weight.
