Can someone breakdown Miles Sanders for me? I don’t get the hype at all...

With Sanders it's all about projecting his traits and flashes. He's been productive but hasn't done what he'll be asked to do with the Bears consistently. The risk associated with him is that he won't be able to do what you need. He has the traits, though, and flashes them frequently.

His shortcomings are less physical athleticism than others.

If the RB position was valued more in the NFL he would be drafted higher than current projections (rounds 2 to 3 per Walter Football). Not much wear and tear on him at all. Only one full season as the starter due to playing behind Barkley. From what I can find online (I have not watched any Penn State college football this past season.), Penn State runs a zone blocking scheme which matches what the Bears tried doing last year. Penn State also runs RPOs. The transition to Nagy's offense should be pretty smooth. I don't see why he couldn't be a three down back for us.

With us having 10 picks next year it wouldn't bother me at all if we used some of that and traded up for him this year. I think what could happen is that we trade up for him, a bunch of people complain that we overpaid, but in reality we don't need 10 picks next year and its worth making a trade up to get our guy.

I have no problem with Pace using one of next year’s picks to get his guy this year, but I don’t want to waste them. They can always trade for a 2021 pick and stock up on future pics that way too.

Sanders has all the traits you would expect with a top tier RB. I have heard some say he isn't eplosive off a cut but I disagree. He has rarely good vision, balance, good hands,
and can make his own yards. Realistically without Barkley herw would have had an amazing career.

With Sanders I see a back that is decent in most traits but he doesn't possess one trait that "wows" you. Jack of all trades, master of none IMO. I don't think I'd trade up for him. If he's there at 87, sure pull the trigger. But I wouldn't trade future picks to get him.

I like Mattison quite a bit as well.

Don't think he'll make it to Round 7 (though stranger things have certainly happened), but I'd be happy with him as a Bear.

Saw that, it was a good read. However, I'm not that high on Singletary in Nagy's offense. I think the Bears need a back that can take it to the house on occasion. Singletary has excellent vision but he's not that explosive. If the Bears end up going with him, fine, but I just can't see backs like him, Montgomery, Snell, etc. fitting into what Nagy wants to do at the RB position. I know they've met with him a couple of times.
