    He looks really good...6'1", 250# w 4.5 speed. Ive seen him mocked rounds 5 and 6. He would be a great pickup

  • I like Dillon & Moss as primary RB picks, likely requiring a round 3-4 pick to draft.

    Per 1/30/20 PFF top 100 2019 performances:
    ---RB-Zack Moss, 2019 had 87 missed tackles on 234 carries with 1024-yds after contact @ 4.5-yds-AFTER contact, plus 3 straight 100-yd seasons. Projected Rd-3/4
    ---RB-A. J. Dillon, led Country in overall grade against stacked boxes, with 1236-yds against. 823-yds after contact was more than any other RB. + His weight may help reduce injuries over a season = ?, Projected Rd-4-ish.

    However, there may be a couple of guys with unusual WR/RB/KR versatility that may be available in the round 5/6/7 area that could add an element that the Seahawks could use. Procise is likely long gone leaving a slight hole in the roster at 3-rd down RB, one of these guys might be a viable low cost option in the later rounds, while also adding special teams value. VERSATILITY+ & may be future "Christian McCaffrey" type players???? Both players are being overlooked in the current rankings a bit IMO.

    --RB/WR/KR/QB-Lynn Bowden, Kentucky, 6-1/199 Likely a Round 6/7 pick?
    (Athletic, explosive, quick feet ++Change of direction abilities, slippery & pretty fast.)
    2019: 30/348/11.6-ypc/1-TD receiving, 185/1468/7.94-ypc/13-TD's rushing
    (Note: #3 in FBS in rushing yards per carry - which is a vastly overlooked stat.)
    2019; 35/74/47.3%/3-TD, 3-INT as QB, + 4/53/13.25-ypr on punts & 9/220/24.44-ypr on KO's.
    2019; 1871-total yards from scrimmage, 7.22-yards/play, 143.9-yds/game
    He's wearing #1 - his 2019 highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJIOfGGkzS0
    (Note additional value as a potential emergency QB behind RW with some recent actual in game experience.)

    --RB/WR/KR-Antonio Gibson, Memphis, 6-2/221 Likely a Round 4/5/6 pick.
    (explosive, stout lower body, quick feet, very fluid & ultra-smooth, quick & pretty fast.)
    2019: 38/735/19.34-ypc/8-TD's, 33/369/11.18-ypc/4-TD's, + 23/645/28.04-ypr/1-TD KO returns.
    2019; 1749-total yards from scrimmage, 18.5-yards/play, 124.9-yards/game.
    He's wearing #14 - Watch his best 2019 game(by far): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX79l492ThI

  • In RB I think for our team unless one player has all the traits you need to distinguish between the quick slasher cut back pass receiver guy and the fast but with power and lateral quickness angry runner that wants to punish defenses to finish runs.

    Look at our RB's who have success Lynch and now Carson, both have the physical attributes and attitude but great lateral ability and great feet. They also run angry and keep their feet churning when being tackled and fight for that extra yard or to break out of would be tackles for extra gainers. Yes I know about the sometimes fumbles, that's a price you pay from having your back be that type and take the extra hits also.

    That's the kind of player you need to see on film that will succeed in our system.

    Ke'Shawn Vaughn is maybe a guy of course when you see highlights it is always big plays but I like how he fights at the goal line with tacklers hanging on him.

  • Whats the deal with Jonathon Taylor .. I have been hearing about him since he was a freshman .. he has 3 great years of production. He ran a 10.5 100 meter in high school .. reports on his school pro day is he is 4.3, you can tell he has that top gear when watching him.

    He is not a small back .. listed anywhere from 215 to 221 ... has wiggle, vision, contact balance and is a legit home run threat with three years of production but he is not mocked top of the draft.

    When I first started hearing about him as a freshman .. I was like oh Wisconsin has themselves one of those top of the draft rare rb.. but nobody is mocking him.

    maybe when he runs a 4.3 or 4.4 at the combine at 215 220 he will become a media crush .. but not a ton of buzz for a guy who seems to be a very complete back.. ok he is green catching the ball .. but whatever.

    Any Wisconsin fans .. who watch all the games got any clue .. why this guy is not getting very much hype .. is he soft or something? Would love a Wisconsin fan who has watched all the games live to comment .. I only watch youtube videos and the dude looks legit even against Ohio state in the second game.

    He’s by most people’s accounts a part of the top 3 RB in this class. It’s a pretty good RB class. Top 3 RB in the class are Dobbins, Swift, and Taylor....most people have them in different orders depending who you talk to. Most people/sites have a late 1st - early 2nd round grade on him. Not forgotten, just a really good RB class overall and he is definitely in that mix at the top.
