Default Middle-round pick to help Tebow

I've been longing for a bad boy fullback since Howard Griffith. Any Pitt fans what to chime in? Aside from the red zone carries and crushing blocking, he could give Tebow a lot of easier completions in space.

Hopefully we solve the FB issue in free agency. Le'Ron McClain, Vonta Leach, Ahmard Hall, John Kuhn, and Lawrence Vickers are all free agents and would all be massive upgrades over Spencer Larsen. Then we can use the picks on other needs. It's not like a free agent fullback is going to break the bank, might as well get a proven stud if we can.

Since McD doesn't use full backs, maybe we can trade Morony to him for Mike Karney

Mike Karney was released shortly after McD became the coordinator. He is a free agent.

If they did, he had four good years with the Saints, before two with the Lambs. Decent player.

Absolutely. Brad Hoover was a very effective lead blocker, and the panther running game flourished with him.

That caught my eye also.
He's both great in pass protection and block run...

was thinking the same thing. Looked like Peyton Hillis only Hillis does it against the Balitmore Ravens not the Cincy Bearcats. Hey if he's available in the 7th round take him

My thinking too, now let's see if someone starts a thread about a qb with a laser arm, a receiver with unbelievable potential, or a great pass catching tight end.
