Fast and agile and good blocker

if you’re going to draft a Rb this early with it being on your strongest positions on roster, he’s probably the one to draft

Listen to the experts not me. But that 30 second video reminded me of Darren McFadden’s running style.

I was surprised that BB went with a RB in this draft - seems like a real organizational strength. But this kid is awesome. Great vision, shifty, and blazing speed. Decent blocker and though he could improve his pass-catching, he seems decent enough at it for now. Absolutely explosive player. I want our offense to have all kinds of playmakers. Thornton and Strong certainly are that, if nothing else.

I think you should draft a RB every single year. RBs are rarely worth a second contract. Just constantly cycle them and maximize value.

That makes sense. I love Damien Harris, but this sets them up nicely for his eventual departure.

Yeah, I was just thinking this - as long as you're not using tooooo much draft capital on it but the trading back for more picks thing really allows that luxury.

I made like 2 mistakes taking grades from my reports putting them into Excel. Chasen Hines and Pierre Strong. Of course I forget to write about Pierre Strong even though I highlighted him on the horizontal board as a 4/5 fit.

I didn't do a full breakdown of his tape because for all the RBs I just ran out of time to time stamp everything. I had to basically power through his tape and jot down overall notes vs game specific stuff.
