    this class of rbs makes me thankful for wilson

    havent seen a rb yet match wilsons speed/explosion/quickness/athleticism...perhaps that whole "run on the quality rb's" comment he made last year had some foresight into this years draft class...just saying its prob more than coincidence we got a rb capable of starting and doing big things when we did when factoring in this years draft class...Montae Ball could be great but Id be bummed if we entered next season with bradshaw and ball or something...

    I thought Knile Davis ran pretty well

    You never know. There's always sleepers. I don't think anyone thought Alfred Morris of the Skins would be as good as he was as well as Doug Martin. They were both thought to be good but not the kind of numbers they put up
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    However if you are the feature neck getting 80/90 percent of the carries then you can put up numbers like that. With the giants system you'd never see that

    speed/explosion/quickness/athleticism doesnt mean a thing if U cant follow blocks and have poor instincts. Some of the most productive runners in the NFL ran a 4.6

    as I said in another thread, I would be all for sacrificing some long speed, if that meant the RB had better vision and balance. And of course, like you said redeye, being able to read/follow blocks and insticts is very important as well. Even Chris Johnson does not bust a big run every time he touches the ball.

    I get what your saying but a 4.6, might be a little stretch.

    thats true but irrelevant here imo bc imo wilson follows his blocks and has good instincts. those werent the issues with his lack of playing time imo, that was due to pass protection and perhaps a strong loyalty to veteran experience...

    Andre Brown has a long injury past & scott we dont know what were getting....I hope we do our RB homework & are able to grab a steal in 5th-7th....
    Small school under the radar guy,guy that slides due to minor off field stuff like we had with bradshaw,etc....

    The skins are a system with that zone blocking scheme where you can plug and play a bull type RB and have success... I bet 2012 Jacobs would have excelled in that system...
