Barry Sanders was the best player I've ever seen play in real life.

What are everyone's thoughts on Rodney Anderson? If he were healthy, from a talent standpoint - where does he stack up?

He is fantastic. Great vision, good vision and quick feet. Good inside runner with quickness. Injuries though will be the question. If healthy top 5 in this class.

He had a solid Pro Day today and his RAS is bordering elite. Intriguing kid to say the least!

Yeah, after today's showing he probably doens't make it much past pick 75 or so. Ah well.

Reports were the Bears were meeting with Ozigbo and Singletary - probably doesn't mean a whole lot but it's something.

With Davis, Cohen and Patterson working in a true committee, I doubt we take a RB before day 3 at this point.
I will kill you if you cut me at the knees. You will drink with me when invited and stay til I say so. We only listen to American Music. I make men nervous with just my presence. I expect an apology if you hold. I throw linemen at QB's. Believe the Lore!

Good stuff indeed. Based off of that, it seems like it's Darrell Henderson in a trade up or wait until the later rounds and take your chances on a Rodney Anderson or Bryce Love (even though he wasn't listed). The other RB prospects to me are very similar and don't seem like they would elevate the offense all that much in its current form. Basically none of them outside of Henderson, Sanders, Anderson or Love really excite me all that much.

If Anderson has clean medicals with us, I'd take him in the 5th.

The knee stiffness bothers me but that's what the team has medicals for, flag him or clear him.

He's everything we need in a RB... quick/explosive, can run routes, can pass block, you name it. Has been healthy until he tore his ACL in his last collegiate game ever. Played though a tough, tough high ankle sprain last season and didn't want to come off the field.

Pace says he likes his backs right now? Great... get this kid in the building and PUP him.

I loved him as a choice when there was no pressing need until 2020.

Giving Howard away kind of wrecked that plan, though.

Pace ostensibly replaced Howard (upgraded, in his mind apparently) with Davis. We could dump him for $1M after this season. I think it would be a brilliant move, again, if he's got clean medicals.

Still, I have a hunch we are taking a corner. I'm becoming a fan of David Long; I think Chuck Pagano is going to pound the table for this kid.

Sure, but who's the #3 (aka real backup, since Cohen is a gadget/gimmick back) with Cunningham gone?

In 2020? You can keep Davis at $4M or address the position again in the 2020 draft if need be.

No. In 2019, while they contend for a SB and Love is out or hampered.

I think you can get by with Davis/Cohen/Nall. Love ostensibly could be back week 7. That would put his rehab at 10 months, same timeline as Todd Gurley. We wouldn't be using him as a feature back I wouldn't think.

There's still UDFA and cuts to happen as well.
