    Eric Ebron - Big 6'4/6'5 TE from UNC. Projected anywhere from 15-25 right now. Could see him going as high as #9 to Buffalo.

    Allen Robinson - Normally projected Early 2nd. After the combine I think we're looking at a Top-20 prospect.

    A couple of the popular names at QB said they wont be throwing at the combine, so I definitely think the 2nd tier QB's have a great chance at climbing.

    I've seen De'Anthony Thomas projected as a 4-5th round RB. He's going to run in the 4.3's if not faster. After people see that 40 time he will be a 2nd rounder. Would love to have him to replace CJ.

    I LOVE Ebron. I wish we had less needs so we could take him. He has the potential to be a Antonio Gates (in his prime) type of player.

    No way he holds up as a full-time back but I do want him if we can get him mid to late rounds. His weight and frame are concerning as a full-time back but some added weight and we could utilize him on ST and in a Danny Woodhead type role.

    Deantony Thomas was not even a starting back for Oregon he weighs 170 lbs.

    A Dexter Mcluster type at best but won't go that high in the draft.

    Rajion Neal is an interesting back later in the draft.

    I wasn't suggesting Thomas be the full-time back. Just a change of pace with Greene. He's a perfect contrast to Greene's hard nosed running and a perfect change up. I'm really hoping, no matter what RB we bring in, it will be more evenly distributed touches for the both of them.

    There's a ton of interesting backs late in the draft.

    James White
    James Wilder Jr
    Andre Williams
    Marion Grice
    Anontio Andrews
    Tyler Gaffney
    Rajion Neal
    Storm Johnson

    Majority of those guys will be 5th+ draft picks. I'm a big fan of Andrews & Gaffney.
