    Jonathon Franklin(UCLA) is #2 on nfl draft scouts board and i think they have a point with that. He had a great season there and a great workout at the combine.

    205 lbs with 4.44 speed. 6.89 cone. Over 1300 yards rushing. The kind of guy a team like the Colts would take a hard look at in rd 1 and would want to trade up in rd 2 to get.

    If he was still there in the third rd we should pounce.

    Best backs in the draft:

    Bernard 1A
    Franklin 1B
    lacy 1C
    Bell 1D

    All have late 2nd rd grades in my book. If any are there in rd 3 we can take one. Bell is also worth a look there.

    It's a RB class of players undersized or too slow or injured. Ellington is a 199 lb speed back with 4.6 speed. Come on! Ball is a 215 lb power back with a lot of mileage. I just can't see Lattimore being worth a 4th rd pick with that injury history.

    It is a big whoop actually.

    And every real fans wants Bell's leaping skills on this team, we play Ed Reed twice this year.

    he might, but he's a good guy so he's not sucker punching people on the field.

    Well, we once had good luck with an RB from Michigan State.

    And I am not talking about Ringer.

    IMO Bell has the most to offer, but he does have a lot of miles on him, and we did just sign a big RB so I doubt we get him, but boy would I be thrilled if we did.

    We will use a 6-7 round pick on one. I'd take Stacy or Rex Burkhead he reminds me of a bigger more powerful Danny Woodhead.

    Lonnie Pryor is the perfect utility back for this team. Plays FB, HB and special teams. He'd a be a great fifth round pick.
