It was fun the first time. Why not? My choice:

 

Malik McDowell

Really hoping Lamp is there. Wouldn't mind Robinson, Mixon, McMillan or McDowell either.

This is the pukable choice. The one you don't want. Like we did in the first round, but I think we jinxed it.

Mixon/Cook

 

Not that I don't think they're talented but we really could use O-line or D-line help more than another running back.

Not a big Cam Robinson guy. Terrell Basham would probably upset me, but wouldn't surprise me. A lot of smoke around Basham pre-draft.

Good point. How many running backs have seemingly come out of nowhere and dominate?

Not only that but running backs are fine to start day 1 in the NFL especially if it's just a rotation. As much "meh" as Hill is, we still have him under contract for this season so we could draft his replacement next year in the 2nd/3rd round and have Gio/rookie/Peerman/whoever as our RB group. Just take a 4th-7th round RB this year and grab a couple UDFAs and let them compete for the ST spot.

Would love Cook or especially Mixon in Rd 2 or 3.  Jimbo Fisher spoke glowingly of Cook, the ultimate teammate, who is ultra talented in all facets of the game.  Mixon seems to have matured from a few years ago and may be the most complete back in the draft.  

 

I like Jeremy Hill too...when he's not trying to make every run a long run.  He too has immense talent, if he can just get into a grind it out kinda mentality vs wanting to score a TD on every run.  I think Hill's lofty goal of 5.0ypc really played with his mind and in turn, his execution on runs.

Malik McDowell would be awesome.  Jordan Willis would be my second choice.  

 

For pukable?

What do you know about Foreman?

To be blunt, he fumbles a lot and can't block worth a shit. That's all I need to see from a guy to not want anything to do with him.

 

If we're trying to replace Hill and keep Gio around for a few more years, I'd love to see them take James Conner later in the draft and not worry about a RB so early. By later I mean 3rd-4th if we wanted Conner. I have a feeling he could be gone in the mid-late 3rd by a team that needs that style of back.

He takes plays off, terrible interview at combine, not productive, coachability concerns, etc etc etc. There's a reason why he didn't go in the first.

He's this year's Robert Nkemdiche, and Nkemdiche was just about as bad as could have been expected.

None of the top OL, RB and DEs would upset me. 

 

DB would suck even though there's some good ones available We've just invested so much money and so many picks at the position that another premium pick on DB would piss me off.
