wab you're going to have to sell me on Dexter Williams man. I see the same thing that I see in Mike Weber... just a guy.

Williams plays waaaaay faster than Weber and he's more elusive. Weber's talent has (IMO) peaked. Williams is still ascending.

I agree with wab on Dexter Williams. Less so on Weber, but I do think Weber isn't going to be much more than he is right now.

Not a fan of Weber, hope the Bears stay away from him.

This seems so stupid to me. That we had a three headed monster at RB for atleast next year. Now all of a sudden we are looking to draft a RB becuase it is a position of need in a draft that RB is one of the weakest positions in this draft.

This makes no damn sense to me. Screw the RB unless we gamble on greatness in Love, Other then that screw drafting a RB. None of them really stand out except Love.

You can't just not draft a position, even if it's for depth, because you are mad about the Jordan Howard thing.


Never said I wouldn't draft a RB becuase of Howard. Said I wouldn't draft a RB becuase this years class is WEAK.

IMO drafting a RB is reaching cuase of need in this years draft. I will add I have no isssue drafting Love in the third or fourth. He is the only RB in this class that I can see making a pro bowl or two. The rest we are looking very hard to fall in love with.

I have read this is a weak RB class. I disagree. It's not top heavy like next year's class will be. However there is a group of guys who have potential to be really good players. I could see any of the top 10 having productive careers.

Narrowing down my RB wish list...

Assuming Sanders is gone my 5 guys are, in order (but not necessarily specific to a particular round):
Trayveon Williams (Well respected leader that checks all the boxes that Pace seems to be looking for in a RB)
Justice Hill (Exciting runner with great vision and agility)
Darrell Henderson (Home run hitter that plays bigger than his size)
Dexter Williams (IMO an ascending player that needs to refine his receiving skills)
Alexander Mattison (Might be too similar to Davis)

If Sanders is there, then it's clearly a no-brainer. But I feel like the fit is so obvious that if they do want him, they'll have to trade up to get him. I also think Singletary will be gone before the 3rd, so the same logic applies.

Also, not sure if you guys saw this but apparently Bryce Love's injury is a real concern for many NFL teams. https://twitter.com/TomPelissero/status ... 2279787520

I don't think the Bears will be taking him - maybe if he goes undrafted and we can bring him in as an UDFA.

You know Singletary reminds me of Kadeem Carey. Which I thinkis a good thing. They both hit the whole fast and have high rpms but don't have long strides. Both are upright with narrow hiped similar bodies. I bet college fair side by side the difference would be minimal. Singletary itz forced top pick through traffic more but very similar.

I agree. I really think Carey could have been a good one if not for the perpetual concussion issues.
