Haven't seen much being discussed about this kid... apparently his character is off the charts, being described as an alpha male and unquestioned team leader. On NFL Network one of the "analysts" tabbed him as the strongest runner in this draft. I had to cock my head to the side because this dude looks tiny on tape.

Here's his info:

https://www.nfl.com/prospects/trayveon- ... 521a18c706

5'8" 206 lbs... he doesn't jump out on tape when I watch him but I do see a good back overall. He's someone that should go anywhere between rounds 3-5, my guess is in round 4.

Here are some clips to watch: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sCS ... QTVzo/edit

Thoughts?

I've watched some tape on him before, he appears to be a little stiff as an athlete IMO. He doesn't look very fluid and is a sort of a long strider. Has some decent speed but he doesn't do anything on tape that really wows you. Doesn't appear to be that elusive and more of a straight line runner. That's the impression that I got of him. I know the Bears have met with him individually (possibly for a private workout). We'll see. He's definitely not in my top 5 wish list of backs.

I like him. I think he's a good fit, but I don't like him as much as a couple other guys.

Glad to read this, I felt the same about his hips (stiff) and that he didn't look as fluid in his cuts/jump-cuts as I would prefer in our future RB.

Nothing special, right? I like Mike Davis better than this kid so he doesn't move the needle for me.

Who do you like more?

Personally, I love Miles Sanders but I don't think he'll be there, same with David Montgomery.

After that I've got a cluster.. I like Devin Singletary because of his short-area burst and quickness, but he doesn't have the long speed I like. I like Darrell Henderson too quite a bit as well and I feel like Justice Hill isn't being talked about as much as he probably should be.

I think Sanders is the 2nd back off the board...possibly the first.

I do like Hill... I also like the idea of taking a flyer on Bryce Love in the 4th or so.

Other than those guys I like Dexter Williams and Jalin Moore.

I like Ozigbo, but he's as good a fit in this offense as Howard was. Henderson, Singletary, Montgomery, and maybe even Holyfield could be off the board.

A little, but he was really starting to come on in the same blocking scheme that the Bears run.

IDK, I think we're hyper focused on RB and we're going to be disappointed when Pace waits til round 6-7 to take a guy if we take anyone at all.
I believe that this is Longs' last year barring a miracle season. So we need O line depth. I also think we need OLB, ILB, and 5 tech DE help along with depth in the secondary.
There are still 6 or so versatile guys in FA that we could sign if we really need another guy.

Benny Snell is a 2 down guy type to look at too. I know we are all looking at speed but that might not be the case with Davis and Cohen already in the fold. Snell has good vision, balance, and power. He blocks well. Has decent hands. He doesn't have top end speed, but he can hit the hole with authority.
