    The Colts, Jags, Raiders, Seahawks, Steelers, and Browns were reportedly also interested.

    It would be just like BB to have someone let a player know they are "interested" to throw others off the track of his real target.

    But that being said - we need a RB of the future and he looks promising.

    5-6 1/2, a lot of defenders would have trouble getting low enough to tackle this guy. Maybe he reminds Belichick of David Meggett.

    Check out his highlight video. Watch the whole thing, especially the interview at the end. His interview really impressed me

    http://uclabruins.collegesports.com/maurice-drew/

    I see him as an every down back, just not your prototypical everydown back. I see him in the mold of a Michael Westbrook.

    Look. As long as Tom Brady is running this offense, we will be a pass first offense. Anything else would be a waste. Why not get a back with some wheels.

    This kid would be huge in the passing game. When he is on the field you would have to respect the pass. Plus, he has blazing speed.

    He is certainly not a pound it down there throats back. He isn't going to get the tough yards.

    But I could see him breaking an awful lot of long runs.

    He can also catch and be a punt returner. BB loves his players to be multi facetted.

    I just have no idea where this kid will go. If he is there in the 3rd, I think it is a no brainer. But do you take him in the second? I don't know. And he may not even be there when we pick in the second.
