    I don't think we should spent our 4th pick on a rb - but i wouldn't mind spending a 6/7 or take some undrafted.

    How about:
    Miguel Maysonet (Stony brook) is 5-9 230 lbs. He ran a 4.62 40 and benched 225 21 times.
    "as a senior, Maysonet topped it off with 1,964 yards and 21 touchdowns on 267 carries" he is currently projected to go in the 7th round.
    or
    Latavius Murray (Central Florida) is 6-3 223 lbs. He ran a 4.38 40 and benched 225 22 times.
    In 2012: 1106 yards and 15 touchowns on 198 carries and receiving 27 - 231 - 8,6 - 4. he is currently projected to go undrafted.
    And
    Knile Davis (as mentioned in many other threads)

    Who wants to use our 2nd rounder on Bell?

    I do!

    I'm worried if we dont take him with our 2nd, Miami or Dallas will.

    Our second might be a little rich for my blood but i wouldn't be opposed to using a third on him.

    2nd is too early for him or pretty much any RB, I'm not a fan of taking RB early, but I just feel this kid is the next Adrian Peterson.

    I like him but will cost us too high of a pick when it is really low priority. If they grabbed him you wouldn't hear me complain he is my favorite back.

    I'd like to see Gillislee in rd 4-5

    I have, i'm in the middle of B1G country. Same offense that Ringer produced 3084 & 28 TDs in two years btw.

    I'm a big fan of Bell, he's a lock in the 2nd IMO.. a few things i've picked up on:

    -Carried the ball 671 times
    -Fails to lower his pads
    -Not the greatest breakaway speed
    -Had good blocking at MSU
    -Questionable vision at times
    -Also has a FB alot, follows a lead blocker, not many teams run w/ a FB alot

    There is no denying his 6'2 230 frame, with good speed/strength, decent receiver in the backfield. People question his work ethic and if he's all about "me" sometimes (I can't confirm or deny this). Heck of a highlight film -- reminds me of a mix of DeMarco Murray, Legarrette Blount, and maybe a little Matt Forte. To compare him to AP is crazy, that's a Top-5 RB in the history of the NFL.
