    didnt think we should or needed him (especially with a hammy) but I am happy with the pick and getting extra picks for him.

    This was a superb pick. White is already the best short-yardage RB we got on the roster, and is probably the toughest (he's tough as nails apparently). He a lot more athletic than Travis Henry and has amazing footwork. He doesn't have CB's homerun acceleration, but he will get some key first downs and touchdowns, and is willing to grind out a lot of yards. Paired with Chow AND having a chip on his shoulder will light a fire under him and I'm calling it, he'll be taking a ton of carries away from both RBs.

    Great pick.:brow:

    Plus, honestly, we don't "need" him to be healthy right away. We have some time to let him get that hammy back up to speed. White is the new George....

    thats correct
    we have planty of time to allow LenDale to heal and to get his "ethic" in check. hopefully he can become a 3rd down / goalline back by mid-season

    he says he should be ready by training camp, but please god dont let them rush him back.

    What we dont need is another injury proned player, especially running back.
