So far Miles Sanders looks like a scheme fit with plenty of talent. I'd he declares.

So our picks, currently, will be round 3, 4, 5 and 7.

Anyone have any guesses as to what positions will be targeted there?

RT/RG, CB/S, WR, RB...would be my guess given the contract status of Amos/Massie/Callahan/White. RB if the Bears try to get a pick out of Howard in the offseason.

Yeah I'm inclined to agree... OL, DB, WR, RB.

I like Cunningham but I don't think I like him getting 15-20 carries a game. Need another dude.

I miss Ka'deem Carey :lol:

If only that dude could have stayed healthy. He'd be such a good fit in this offense. I haven't looked at RBs a ton. I like Rodney Anderson a lot but he's hurt so it's hard to say.

Whenever he declares, Josh Jacobs from Alabama would be a wonderful fit in Nagy's system... can return kicks as well. Built about like Hunt from KC but looks like he might be faster.

I'm thinking we need a "more natural", "well-rounded" RB to replace Howard. I look at how KC was using Hunt against New England and I just don't think Howard can be that dynamic in the passing game.

I'm expecting a back to be taken with one of our picks and I'm of the opinion that player will battle Howard for the starting gig and it will ostensibly boot Cunningham from the roster.

Probably need to draft a safety as well, I don't know if we will be retaining Amos.

How about Ryan Nall as his replacement? He's big like Howard way more natural with running routes. I just don't remember how they compare speed wise.

I was just thinking this, albeit I may be 7 or 8 pendleton's deep, but hear me out.

Ryan Nall, raw as he is, gets a year in the system on the practice squad. Howard, as much as I love him, gets flipped for a 3rd and 6th, because they simply can't pay everyone. Cunningham gets cut for an UDFA or Mizzell. Cohen is the not so feature, feature back and nall does the dirty work and catches some passes while mizzell does the cunningham work.

I love howard, but he needs to be on a team that will hand him the ball 25 to 30 times a game. I don't see that on a team with cohen and running nagy's offense.

After watching the last 10-15 years of the nfl evolution I think RB is the most replaceable position and one you should probably never draft in the first round as the drop off isn't like other positions. Flip howard to the raiders or seahags for a couple picks to shore up O'line and the back end of the defense.
