I think CMac got a chance to be something very special. I think you're looking at an athlete that can be used all over the field. Like a Swiss Army knife. Imagine the mismatches you're looking at when you go empty on 3rd down with him lined up at RB. I also think he can be good enough to immediately become a Julian Edelman type receiver if used properly. Catches and yac. With game breaking, take it to the house ability.
To be honest I'd rather us take him at 15 or trade back and get him later over letting him go to the Patriots. Because if he goes to New England, Brady will be playing 3-4 more years and trying to put two more titles on his resume with this kid. McDaniels and Brady will kill the league with this kid.
So I say trade back a few places and draft CMac and stack an extra pick that can be used for our defense. Used this kid in a timeshare with Gore or Turbin or whomever. Let this kid get 10 carries and at least 10 targets either out the backfield or as a wideout and we should have a top 3 offense next year and be a playoff team. Add a few solid pieces on D later in the draft and through free agency and we could really threaten.
And if not, then fire Chuck and Get McDaniels in here and let's get this dynasty up and running. To start our dynasty, we've got to end their dynasty. What better way than to steal their OC (some believe potential successor to BB) & a player you know he'd use to really dominate? We missed out on getting Josh McDaniels this offseason, don't compound that by missing out on this kid too. We'll get the coach next year.
