    check him out... imagine warrick dunn, with 20 more pounds on a slightly larger frame
    he's a perfect fit for what i believe haley/bicknell intend to run

    he was in a zone-read system
    he is a true 1 cut runner

    i think franklin is the jamaal charles of this draft. the guy that gets written off because he doesn't have prototype starter size.

    All I know is they drafted Santonio Holmes high as well.

    I imagine run blocking will get much better with decastro and adams having a year under their belt...they are going to be dominant run blockers. If they do the unthinkable and take a guard with the first pick with cooper or warmack the run game will be unstoppable , but im thinking they wont do that
    I don't know if either Warmack or Cooper will still be there, even though they are both OGs and OGs don't usually go in round one, never mind two going before the 17th pick. But both are very highly rated. Also, gee whiz, would they really take two consecutive (years) first round picks both on OG? That would be very unusual.

    I think Gillislee would be a great pick up ... I think he fits the supposedly zone scheme great ... as well as being the most complete back in the draft ... Running , Receiving , and most importantly Pass Blocking ...

    and could be had in the 4th or maybe even 5th ... he's getting lost in the RB conversation

    I'm still hoping we get Zac Stacy, he is going to be the steal of the draft for running backs. We can get this kid from the fourth on back.

    But it would compensate for them just flat out ignoring the oline for so long. Having Cooper/Warmack, Pouncey and Decastro as an interior would really allow them yo do a lot of things on offense

    Hes not the most complete, and pass blocking is not most important for what we need. Especially if they move to zone, theres gonna be a lot of fake stretches and bootlegs that ben would actually execute great

    what about Texas A&M's Christine Michael, looks like the best back on tape, some major red flags, but if he can straighten out he'll be good

    He actually looks a lot like Dwyer in college (not saying he will have the same horrible work ethic or anything, just running style looks kind of similar.)
