Discussion in 'The Bill Nunn Draft Room' started by steelcityclash, May 17, 2018.
Just looking into the future. Which RBs should I be watching for next year to possibly replace Bell?
Bryce Love, David Montgomery and Rodney Anderson come to mind.
Closest "Le'Veon Bell" would be L.J. Scott, who is oddly enough, a Michigan State Spartan.
I just wanted to name a few more in case others were interested in following this year. maybe some who follow their teams could add some insight or opinions.
After researching a bit, here are a few I like and will be watching.
Damien Harris - Alabama... love this dude, powerful and has got hr speed. Has a lil MJD in him.
Mike Webber - Ohio State... interested to hear any Buckeye fans what they think of him.
Justice Hill - Oklahoma State... unique if Qb, RB, WR were all from here
If rodney andersen has a good year as good as his last one he would be my choice at 6-2 218 he is close to a Bell clone, scott hasnt done a lot in his two years at MState...
I agree with L.J.
I was damn near the only one on here who wanted David Johnson in the '15 draft and then Aaron Jones who went to GB in 2016. I have to give credit to @NYSteelerfan for Kareem Hunt in 2017, good pick.... Then I wanted Royce Freeman in last year's draft, but I still liked James Conner who will be a stud. Anyhow and either way, I think we are good for the RB position for the expected future. A lot of possibilities if we lose Bell, is what I'm saying....
not really impressed with this year's crop of RBs tbh. Rodney Smith out of Minnesota was my frontrunner, but he went out for the year with injury.
Going back to the well, but CU has produced some good NFLers recently, with Michael Gallup (Cowboys) my top 1 or 2 WR this past year in the draft. So RB Travon McMillan may be my first choice. Will have to see the rest of the year obviously and combine, but I think a 3rd or 4th is reasonable. And its not a top priority with Conner's performance. We just need a complimentary piece.
But Buffs WR Laviska Shenault....damnnnn... I wish we needed a WR, talk about a player with football in his heart. Yea get some...
Same as when you guys laughed at me for wanting Husker FB Andy Janovich (who Denver drafted). Some guys just have IT.
Bryce Love does nothing for me....
I probably am not drafting a RB...at least not an early stud. Conner, Samuels, and Ridley....and maybe another FA and I would be just as happy for next year.
Looks good to me Hack. The key is keeping a very good OL in front of these guys.
