    This guy intrigues the heck out of me.

    It's been discussed that his situation parallels Cmart's situation coming out of college.

    I wouldn't mind taking him with a 5th pick if he's available.

    His injury is alot worse than Martin's was, but if he's close to fully recovered he'd be a nice addition.

    I was thinking the same thing as I do like him a lot but I don't see him dropping to the 5th round. Gore, Davis, and Martin to name a few who have come back from injury to be big time in the NFL. I mean Clarrett went in the 3rd round afterall, I say if he is still around in the 4th we takr him but I doubt he will be... be nice though, he would compliment Maroney very well.

    I like him a lot and used to advocate drafting him in the second (when NE still had a second rounder)

    With this second surgery I don't think he goes that high, but I'm not sure he'll fall all the way to the 5th round. remember his college coach is now at Atlanta, so he's probably going earlier than that, injury or not. Maybe third/fourth. If his coach passes on him in those rounds I would be somewhat worried about picking him, since he probably knows better than anyone what type of runner he is, and how severe the injury is. Michael Bush had first round talent before the injury, so if he falls all the way to round five with his coach now in the league that would be somewhat of a red flag to me.

    He'd be a perfect replacement for Dillon. I was hoping we'd continue to use the 2 back system this year, and I see Morris more as a backup for Faulk. I'd be happy to draft Bush if he fell to round 3. He probably won't drop that far tho.

    I want to continue using the two back system, as well.

    Atlanta got a steal in Norwood last year so I don't see them drafting Bush unless they want another TJ Duckett type back for goal line carries.

    Warrick Dunn is getting older, and they could use a big back. Norwood could eventually take over for Dunn with Bush being their big pound it up the the gut back, who does even more.

    Bush is very interesting to me because he can do more than most big backs. Bush can catch well, run inside, and run outside. He's probably one of the most talented big backs to come out recently. In my opinion he'd be an upgrade over recent versions of Dillon, because his game is more complete.
