Default 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.

When did Lacy say that he was entering the draft?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 would be a really nice draft. Short is my preferred DT in this draft, though he didn't take the Senior jump I was expecting. I had him as my #1 DT last year, so maybe I'm just being stubborn after a very good, not great senior year. I'm not convinced he'll make it to the late first, and if he doesn't, I think Sylvester Williams from North Carolina would be a great consolation prize. Personally, I do hope we go DT in Round 1, maybe even trade back a bit like last year.

As for Minter, I made a post before I saw yours about him. He's kind of an easy evaluation because he won't come out unless he's a 1st Round pick. So, we would either take him in R1 or he's not an option this year. Really good player though.

Ball in the 3rd would work. Has a lot of similarities to former John Fox backs Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster. I really think he'd have to be the 2nd Round pick though, and we might even have to move up a bit for that.

I've been really impressed with Kevin Minter from LSU. If he declares and makes it to our pick in the late first, I think he has to be the selection as things stand now. Te'o probably goes Top 5 now with both the Chiefs and Raiders needing an ILB.

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.

Ball will be an interesting name to watch. What's interesting is that after last year's ridiculous season, he was a 3rd round pick because of speed limitations. A year later, he's had a much less impressive statistical season while adding considerable mileage to his tires. That said, to me, he looks better and the Wisconsin line is not nearly as good as last season. I think he's a late 2nd Round pick, but there's probably not a player in this draft whom will have as much riding on a 40 time as Ball will. I expect a 4.63 if he weighs in at 215-225.

That won't go ever well here after the whole Moreno thing. Though I can see the appeal of Ball in the 3rd round. He could end up being very good yardage grinding type back.

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.

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.

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...
