    Why would Ben be jumping for joy over a midget RB that probably won't see the field all that much? They needed to get him a big target, not another smurf.

    I think the jumping for joy comment was sarcasm?

    Tavon Austin
    HT: 5'8
    WT: 174
    40: 4.34


    Dri Archer:
    HT: 5'8
    WT: 173
    40: 4.26



    These are facts. I'm not defending Dri over Tavon. I'm just miffed as to why Austin was such a great pick and Archer isn't.

    Maybe because ben can start drives on the 48 yard line more often.. not the 5

    Too bad there's this rule in the NFL where if the ball goes out of the back of the end zone it's a touchback. Happens quite a lot since they've moved the kickoff up.

    Um I love this pick I go to Kent State, had classes with Archer. Always wanted him to get drafted by the Steelers. He wouldn't be there in the 5th round, the team that took Bruce Ellington would of took Archer, he wouldn't be there for us at 4th or 5th. Still good CBs out there to get..

    Most touch backs are 8-9 yards deep, not out the back. A sub 4.3 guy can return those.
