Mack was ranked the 9th best RB by CBS, just behind Foreman.  Guys like Gallman, Williams, Pumphrey were ranked behind him and they were already gone.  I would tend to agree.

 

I think Mack at the very least gives us an upgrade over our # 3 RB and maybe ends up the #2 this year. He also gives us another dimension in the running game. Even if that's it , not a wasted pick at the bottom of round 4

Emory Hunt is a small schools scout that is indeed very well respected.

Oh come on now, he can't be better than the posters on here that's have said it was a wasted/disappointing pick.

 

 

 

 

 

 

yes that was sarcasm for those few that can't see it.

I like this pick. Read his player profile converted from WR. Best football is ahead of him. Probably won`t play much this year though.

Kelvin Hayden was the same way too, former WR

I like how Ballard is trying to get CBs with more size. 

Agreed out of likes

Gotta admit, don't know much about him.  I would say a little odd when Walker, Jr. still there.  Even Stribling at CB?  At any rate, I have liked all picks up to now.  Can't agree with them all I guess.  Maybe he's a sleeper guy?

Yep, I almost forgot about Hayden being a WR. Good one.

Joe Mathis, Bucky Hodges, or Anthony Walker please

 

I am curious as to why Hodges has slipped this far. Even if you don't think he can block, he's still one of the better receiving TEs in this class...and he's incredibly athletic for his size.

Every pick we have chosen has no size deficiencies. Just like he promised.

Being converted from a WR to a CB must mean he at least gets his hands on the ball. Doesn't mean he'll catch it since he was converted to a CB. That old cliche. But good CB depth and can be a key cog down the road

converted from WR

Out of likes. I really like DB's with wide receiver background. The eyes tell the story as they read plays very well

You haven't seen him play for the Colts, which is obviously what I referred to. Calling him a wasted pick before having seen him play for the Colts, in the NFL...

 

If Ballard and Philbin like him, I trust them more than you.

 

That's cool. I've disliked a single pick in the entire draft. More than that won't make it, I simply predict Banner will be one of them.

I would have taken Walker and Hairston in the 4th and taken the two big guys in the 5th, in which case I probably would have missed them.

 

We got another corner and Walker, so today was a good day.

    • I was wondering about his 40 time. Says here it was 4.75 which is not blazing but considering he was 6’5-1/2” and 262 lbs at the time, it’s respectable.   He may not be able to run away from some defenders but he can certainly box them out.   It also said a few teams were interested in him.   https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.richmond.com/sports/college/schools/virginia-commonwealth-university/alie-cox-wows-nfl-scouts-will-visit-several-teams-in/article_8e0b8492-ce06-555f-85df-2232443fe8c5.amp.html
    • I’m not a big fan of trading for Conley. His injury history worries me. I do think PG is the position we must up grade this off season.     One would think New Orleans will  want to move Jrue. He’s 29 yrs old and doesn’t fit with the youth movement going on down there. I’d love to bring him to Indy to play next to Vic.   Theres a rumor that the Spurs want to trade DeRozan for Bogy McDermott and the 18th pick.  I am a big Bogy fan but that’s a deal we’d have to take a long look at. 
    • Seems odd in general that it took so long.  Outside of the guy in SD, we rarely hear why someone holds out this long on a mundane contract with so little to quibble over. 
    • One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run.  With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them.  He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air.  No wonder our run defense was so stout.  Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game...  You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
    • I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered.  That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills...  I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level.  A combination of all 3.
