    My late round gem is Michael Ford of LSU. Ford has a fantastic burst, sturdy build, and runs angry. He is probably a complimentary guy in the NFL, but I've always been impressed with him as a runner. He is the kind of guy who can be a featured back because he has decent size, strength, speed, hands. If he lasts until the 5th or later, he would represent an excellent value.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    I would like a late round guy and a UDFA, I think Ray Graham and D.J. Harper would be great.

    I didn't watch much UCLA, but just from the highlight video posted it seems he runs very upright. I had to check the draft profile to see how tall he was and he's listed at 5'10.
    He seemed fast and quick, which is a nice change from who we have now. Anyone watch his games in more depth?

    Bingo. Michael looks legit. Plus we can tease the Ravens LB's that get run over by "Christine".

    Like Ovi, Chadman really likes the Jawan Jamison video. And like DeVille, Stephon Taylor looks good. Both these guys timed really poorly in the 40, but both do not look.. slow.

    Still really like the Mike James stuff too. Steelers might be well served getting 2 RB's if they don't sign Bradshaw.

    But if they do, if they go into the draft with Bradshaw, Dwyer & Redman on the roster- what rookie RB is the best fit, or offers the best return?

    I would think they would have to go with a quicker back.

    Franklin - UCLA may be some fumbling concerns
    Michael - Texas A&M some character concerns
    Gillislee - Florida needs to be more decisive at hitting holes

    Depends what Kirby thinks he can correct with coaching on some of these .

    Let Emmanuel Sanders walk.

    Then draft Austin at #17.

    Take a SAFETY or Corner in round 2.

    Then I would like either Taylor or Michael with one of the 3rd round picks.

    Take the best defensive player available with the other 3rd round pick.

    Instead of signing Bradshaw, get Starks back on board.

    The offensive line of Starks-Foster-Pouncey-DDC-Adams combined with a couple more weapons around them complimented by A. Brown, Cotchery and Plax sounds good. Real good.

    Take a TE in the 4th.

    BPA from there on out.

    But, yeah. I really like Taylor with his semi-violent, legs churning running style and Michael with his first 30 yrds. burst. Austin would make Ben forget about Wallace and Sanders real quick.
