I see a lot of people on this and some other boards so excited if Lendale White falls to 21. My question is why? He played on a very good team in college and was used in very specific situations. We have no knowledge of weather or not he can be an everydown back. He does indeed have impressive size, but that could work against him as well. He could be Ron Dayne for all we know. At the combine he looked like an offensive lineman who was soft around the middle. Until he runs at his pro day, I am not ready to get on that bandwagon. My second point is this- With the way Free agency has panned out so far, realistically all but Reggie Bush could be there at 21. IMO, Lendale White, Deangelo Williams, Lawrence Maroney, and Joseph Addai all fit into the same tier for running backs. The Colts at the end of the 1st and the Jets at the beginning of the second would be the next 2 teams to take a running back. If we assume that Belichick uses a value system for the draft, it would not be good value to take one of those running backs at 21 when all four are still on the board. Trading down or taking some other position at 21 and then waiting until the last of the 4 are left and then trading up in the second would make for a much better value for a running back. This draft is starting to shape up just like drafts for the last few years. Runningbacks tend to start falling down draft boards and the real value could be had much later than the 21st pick. It is now realistic that a back like Addai could be still available when we pick in the second round, and personally I like him as well if not better than some of the other highly profiled backs. What do you think? Am I crazy for thinking this way?
