    I’m not a college junkie and I’ve been trying to look at potential fullbacks. Most believe that the game has passed pure FB’s by, but I don’t think so when I look at our team. Because of the perception of FB’s in today’s game, it seems really difficult to find good information about prospects. Most of what I read purely focuses their abilities as receivers and runners when I’m most interested is if they will keep Mariota clean on passing plays and spring the RB’s for big runs.

    I’ve been looking at George Aston. He seems like an impressive FB, but I have trouble finding film on him. I want to see more. He’ll probably go undrafted from what I can tell.

    Who do you guys think can fill that role that Lorenzo Neal and Ahmard Hall used to?

    Having a FB is fine ... but you don't draft them

    You do late

    They just dont play a high enough amount of snaps to pick sooner.

    Titans could use a FB for sure with Stocker gone.

    Yeah I’m not sure we draft one, but you never know. Probably more like an undrafted FA. I’m more interested in people’s take on how a great FB could improve our offense and maybe direct me to some interesting players I’m overlooking.

    Jalston Fowler has tainted my perception of FB. Not because we couldn’t use one or because I hate them (I love heavy run football), but because we don’t use them or value them properly....

    We haven't seen Arthur's O yet, so hard to tell if a FB fits in or not.

    I'm guessing its gonna be a run heavy O, so FB might fit in nicely

    Then again, Henry doesnt really need a FB if he just hits the holes going north and south

    The key is to keep Henry clean before he hits the line

    A FB would certainly help that

    But we may also just use a TE like last year

    Lot of teams dont even roster FBs these days...

    Didn't we bring him back for like 5min last year?

    What we need is the next Armad Hall
