Eddie Lacy
 
Alabama running back.

Normally, I am against using a first round pick on a rb, but if he were to survive to the end of the 1st round when Denver might pick, I want him.

Requiem 12-01-2012 05:29 PM

Definitely not a first rounder.

Or in the right forum :thumbsup:

When did Lacy say that he was entering the draft?

12-01-2012 07:21 PM

I'd be fine with drafting the guy in the 3rd round or later, but there's no ****ing way the guy is worth a 1st rounder.

12-01-2012 07:32 PM

It seems every Alabama rb is damn good, Lacy looks like the next great rb next in line from that pipeline.

Mat'hir Uth Gan 12-01-2012 07:39 PM

I dunno. I do think he is a 1st Round back and would compete with Giovani Bernard to be the first back off the board. Right now, I'd think Green Bay would be very interested around Pick #25.

The guy is 6'0, 220. Runs in the low-mid 4.5s. Is going to have over 1200yds averaging more than 6 yards per carry in the SEC. He also has decent hands. And he's only a Junior in a timeshare with Yeldon whom is a future Top 10 back, or he'd have massive numbers. He was really good spelling Richardson last year as well and has substantial similarities to Trent.

If he's not a 1st Round back, I'm not sure what is.

Lestat 12-01-2012 07:40 PM

bump that, i want Yeldon(yes i know he's a frosh), that dude is going to be a beast and they have some seriously wickedly good ones coming in this recruiting class.

BroncoMan4ever 12-01-2012 08:12 PM

What about Montee Ball? Big strong back with a nose for the end zone.

Plus he is getting a 3rd round grade right now. Better to get a guy like that and get a MLB or dominant DT earlier in the draft

only MLB i want early is named Teo and that mother is going top 15.
well Bostic from Florida is good too, but he's likely 2nd round more than 1st so that would still be early.

With the 32nd pick in the 2013 NFL draft the Denver broncos select-

razorwire77 12-01-2012 08:17 PM

It these guys come out, it should be a much better year to draft a power back in the 2nd or 3rd round than last year.

Montee Ball is a senior
Levon Bell (MSU) is a junior
Bernard, Lacy, really any of these guys would go a long ways to helping to upgrade the RB position.

I don't see it. That line makes everyone look great, but I just don't see the play-making ability of a 1st round pick. Then again the size (there's no way he's just 220) and speed combo may just be too tempting for teams. Should be interesting to see what the guy does at the Combine.

DivineLegion 12-01-2012 08:54 PM

Production production production! I'll take Monte Ball.

I would love a DT like Kawann Short from Purdue that can get push up the middle in the 1st. Bostic Would be a nice 2nd round pick but if Te'o isn't an option I want Kevin Minter from LSU in the 2nd. Then in the 3rd Montee Ball.

That One Guy 12-01-2012 08:58 PM

I won't lie, I don't watch a whole lot of college ball closely so I don't know one guy from the next usually but I was rooting for Georgia tonight (F Saban) and that Lacy guy looked amazing. The line surely helped but the guy seemed to get 5 yards after the first guy jumped on his back. That one drive where I don't think Alabama threw the ball once and Lacy was averaging 12+ YPC was just insane.

He may not have the body of work to be a 1st round pick, I don't know, but boy he sure dominated that Georgia D at times.

Baba Booey 12-01-2012 09:02 PM

Much rather have Yeldon.

DivineLegion 12-01-2012 09:05 PM

After tonight Ogletree might lose some draft stock, the guy got steam rolled all night long. Maybe we can steal Ogletree late in the second round.

Lestat 12-01-2012 09:11 PM

Bernard would be my #1 RB if we have to take someone early. if it's later on i want Gillislee.

at DT since we won't get Star, either Shariff Floyd,Jonathan Jenkins or Sheldon RIchardson early.

i doubt he lost much stock. he's like 220-225 playing LB on a safety frame.

It doesn't look to me like Ogletree would help the Broncos Defense out any...he's definitely not a 4-3 MLB. The Broncos need a good RB...hopefully they can get one in Free Agency.

There are a few NT's that I wouldn't mind taking with the 32nd pick in the draft...

Aftermath 12-02-2012 01:11 AM

Absolutely not. Terrible thread. We dont even know if he will be in this years draft. Let's make a thread about every prospect we should draft!

Doggcow 12-02-2012 01:23 AM

I like Rambo. He has a sweet name. I liked Major Wright too because he had a sweet name and he seems to be working out.

Ratboy 12-02-2012 01:33 AM

No idea.

But we do need a running back that has the ability to take it to the house on a consistent basis.
