So a complimentary back to Morono or make him a complimentary back ? His ability to make the second level miss has been suspect at best. Course he rarely got to the second level.

I would like to see us add a big back like a Michael Bush, or draft a guy like Bradford from USC or Clay from Wisconsin. Don't want to use an early pick on a RB with all the defensive needs.

Another scat back? We have one now? Who would that be? Fact is we have almost no speed in the backfield, and this guy is an instant threat the defense has to pay attention to. If he hits the corner he could go the distance from anywhere. He might be small, but the kid carried the ball like a true bell cow runner and he's got the ability to be a Devin Hester type game breaker in the return game I think. He could be the perfect compliment to Moreno.

He's not going to last past the 3rd at best, and some scouts say he's going to go in the 2nd. If he were 10 pounds bigger he'd be a first round pick I think.

We need a back with speed, we have no one on this roster that can break a big gain at the second level. Moreno just doesn't have another gear.

Devine is expected to run a 4.3 flat or close to it. He's not just fast, he's got lightning quickness and is probably pound for pound the strongest guy in the draft. I'd love to see defenses keying on Tebow and with this guy back there with him.

Yep. I have the opinion that the best way to re-create Tebow's success at Florida, is to try our best to re-create the Florida offense (without so many zone read QB runs).

Devine could definitely play the Percy Harvin role.

Houshyamama
01-25-2011, 01:53 PM
I think Moreno is a great back, he just needs to be complemented. He's not the complete package, but in today's NFL that's OK. A Thomas and Charles combination would be awesome. IMO Moreno is right in between those two, so it makes it hard to decide whether to compliment him with speed or power, I'm on the speed side.

I've had my eye on him, and if we draft offense at all... I hope it's him.

Absolutely.

Just look at what Mendenhall did for the Steelers the other night. A guy with good size/power combination can really help you grind out the tough games, and we all know Moreno couldn't have stayed in that entire game without being hurt.

I like Knowshon, but we need competition and rotation for him to be most effective.

Sure, but I think if we need to add RB depth, we can do it from the FA market. Depending on the CBA, we could even pursue Arian Foster. We could trade for Steve Slaton, or sign DeAngelo or Michael Bush...

Meanwhile, our defensive front 7 is a joke, and if Champ leaves, our best DB will be Goodman.

JakeNbake
01-25-2011, 01:59 PM
Right.... we need more Running backs.... I think Moreno, White, and Ball will suffice. Needless to say our real problem is the Front 7 on D. What we need to do is establish a D whether that be a 3-4 , 4-3, or 3-3-5... Though I know we won't play 3-3-5 all the time I can see us doing it this year. We can hide the blitz better.

Anywho if we must get one I say we pick up Sprolles from the Dolts. We need a homerun hitter and I believe he'd do the trick. Barring he isn't wanting too much Cash money.

I don't think anybody here is talking about using one of the (current) first 4 picks on an RB but if Denver can get back into the 4th round or use a 5th on one I wouldn't mind.

And count me in the group that thinks a home run threat would be more complimentary to Moreno's game than a bruiser.

With the amount of screens we run, we could use someone who moves well in space. And we have a power back, his name is Tim Tebow. Devine ran the read option plenty and would make for a nice option to run this with Tebow in specialty packages.

Yes you're probably right.... But I did read something about picking up ingram with a 2nd.... That's probably what I was basing my opinion on. But I'm sure it's just a minority though. It's a brutal thought.

true, but Tebow can't continue to play that loose or we are looking for a new face of the franchise within 3 years.

also Fox is known to prefer bigger backs that punish defenders, so honestly i think the scat back option is a moot point with this coach.

i also don't feel it is as necessary as long as we have a back that defenses have to game plan for that can move the chains and keep defenses from keying on Tebow

Well considering his height and weight were over-reported, you could probably assume the same of his bench press. Not sure what that has to do with being a good RB anyway.

or


Guys I would like us to look at in the mid-late rounds of the draft: Jacquizz Rodgers and Derrick Locke. Noel Devine was on this list until he weighed in at 160, that raises major concerns.

There's definitely options. Drafting is more cost effective, though some of those free agents might come relatively cheap. I think Moreno can be a solid, even very good back in this league. But we need depth behind him who can start in a pinch if he can't stay healthy.

Oakland has a slew of FA to sign and with mcfadden the main RB they may have to let Bush walk. He would be tough to sign because I think he's ready to break out much like Micheal Turner did when he left SD.

Then you make Moreno the bkup and plan to probably let him walk when his contract is up.

And while im not saying Tebow should be running traps all game, theres nothing to suggest his body cant take 8-10 runs a game.

i agree, a few runs for Tebow a game is necessary, however, he can't continue his fast and loose style of running trying to bowl over LB, that will end his career.

what kind of backs haven't gashed our D in recent years? power backs, slow backs, scat backs, old backs, rookies, no matter what type of back our defense has been gashed by them
