    Beanie was a STUD in college. He's been "average" in the pros. We already have a couple of average RBs on the roster. He wouldn't be a horrible add. But, you'd want "better than what we have" - i think he's on par with what we have...
    Biased in the sense that I have actually seen him play. I don't want former Buckeyes who can't contribute. A healthy Wells is better than Dwyer or Redman.

    AZ seemed like they had seen more than enough of Wells, especially with the drafting of Ryan Williams in the second.
    I agree about his health. He has struggled to stay healthy. And if you bring Wells on, you must realize you might only get 100-200 carries out of him. But, if you look at his healthy seasons he finds the endzone and runs well over 4 yards a carry. That is better than anything we currently have.

    but, when you have to qualify it with "a healthy..." you know the guy is a bit of a risk... a healthy Bob Sanders is better than ryan clark... (sorry - i just had to laugh at myself on that one)

    What risk? It's not like the guy will break the bank.

    the risk is: filling a potential starting roster spot with someone who is about on par with your other backs and very likely to be injured... IMO, I'd rather spend a mid-round draft pick on an RB than take an chance on having a 2nd Duce...

    Today, I'll say DUUUCE, but, if they sign him, I'll be pleased that they got a 1st round talent for cheap and hope like hell that he stays healthy... seemed to be a quality person and a leader, iirc

    Please say no to Beanie Wells.

    I'd rather sign no one as a FA and draft Lattimore than go after Wells.

    Yup... I like your mock draft. If he's available (unlikely), I might add DeAndre Hopkins in the 2nd and then switch up your 3rd. Or, I would definitely go with the BPA Safety in the 2nd round and keep Dobson as your 3rd.

    I'm curious to see who you'll have in round 2. As far as Lattimore goes, this guy is a stud. Yes, the two severe knee injures are a concern but I don't think I could pass by the guy if he's available in the 4th. It's actually his latest knee injury which is the concern because he was playing fine last year (off an ACL tear) before he injured the other leg.

    I remember when Ray Rice came out. I watched him a lot in college and I just knew that guy was going to do well in the pros. My only concern with Rice is whether he had to much wear on his tires. I was initially concerned about that with Lattimore but his injuries cut way into his college career. I have the same feeling for Lattimore that I had about Rice when he came out.

    Living in South Carolina, I obviously watch a lot of Gamecock football (and I'm not a Gamecock fan). I am a Lattimore fan though. This guy has deceptive speed, outstanding vision and instincts, and a very rare ability to slip tackles and sniff out the goal line. He's easily a starter in this league from a talent perspective.
