    Thanks to this virus thing I've had a few extra hours to fill each day with

    I watched some of Jason Huntley out of New Mexico State... he is small at 5'9"188 but his highlights are fun to watch....another guy not invited to the combine

    He had 154 rushes for 1090yds which is 7.1 ypc and 9 TDs...he has around 40 receptions for 3 straight yrs....he has also returned 5 KOs for TDs in his college career

    At his pro day he ran a 4.4 40 yd

    Vrable in his zoom conference today said they want a RB who can be a 3 down RB, can protect and can return kicks...they have identified a few at several different spots in the draft is what Vrable said

    2nd rnd Clyde Edwards--Helaire fits the bill...we know what he did as a RB and he also has 40 KOR under his belt for a 21.9 avg

    3rd rnd Darrynton Evans seems to fit that bill the best...he has 56 returns under his belt with an avg of 25.7 He was a 3 down back for App St with 255 rushing attempts for 5.8 avg and 18 TDs. He caught 21 balls for 5 TDs

    ???Antonio Gibson...i don't think he fits because he certainly hasn't shown he is a 3 down RB... he only has 33 carries in his whole college career.

    Late rnd guys...Javon Leake from Maryland had 30 KOR with an avg of 26.8yds...but he isn't an experienced 3 down RB


    None RBs that we have looked at that have return experience are Jalen Reagor who was 2nd in the nation in punt return yards last yr and we also have looked at Isaiah Rodgers who led the country in combined return yards last yr...so he brings value in both those areas

    Personally I think we bring in a vet with pass protection experience...I wouldn't want to leave our franchise QBs health up to a rookie to start the season.

    Bring on Reagor in the 2nd and Evans in the 5th. I'd love it!

    I would ABSOLUTELY invest a 2nd in Clyde Edwards-Helaire if he can be had. Explosive and versatile playmakers like him don't come around often.

    Darrynton Evans has had virtual or private visits with 25 of the 32 teams.....not sure whether he has any skeletons in his closet that teams were wanting to clarify or whether it is just purely interest in his quality of play, but with that much interest I could see him maybe not lasting to our late 3rd pick

    Jonathan Taylor. Most overlooked player I've seen in recent years. He'd be a perennial all pro on a team which runs as much as we do.
