Backup to Saquan Barkley that finally was given the reigns this season, produced to the tune of:

220 rushes, 1274 yards, 9 TDs // 24 rec, 139 yards

He's an intriguing back, here's a nice breakdown of him below:

https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/02/12/ ... xperience/


The Combine and his Pro Day will be big for him, scouts will want to see what times he can attach to his tape. Still, I love his size (5'11" 215 lbs) and the power with which he runs. Is he Jordan Howard in that regard? Absolutely not, but he does run with more burst and wiggle than Howard. Curious to see his hands in action as well but I like this kid in the 4th round quite a bit.

I don't think he lasts until R4.

The good news is, the draft is loaded with RB talent that matches up with where the Bears will be picking. in R3 or R4.

I like him a lot but maybe not as much as some. Greg Gabriel went on Twitter today saying Sanders was his top RB going into the Combine. I don't think he's the #1 RB in the class. He definitely has more wiggle and athleticism than Howard - if he did slip to R4, I'd love to take him there.

I don't get it. Howard is a stud. Nagy just needs to use him. Especially late in the game.

Yes, I am drinking the Howard kool-aid.

Yes Howard is a stud. Nagy shows no desire to use him how he effectively needs to be used.

Sanders however fits this offense to a T. Looks like he will be gone though. I thought I found a gem, but actual NFL scouts seem to realize his talent.

I really like Jordan Howard. I just don't think he's a threat in the passing game and we need a dual threat.

I think Howard is a goner after this upcoming season unless something drastically changes in his 'game'.

I don't think he's going to time as well as some are projecting... could be there for us in the bottom of round 3.
