    BB dips into Georgia's run game again and takes Elijah Holyfield (Evanders son). Power running back that just loves to run people over.

    With our identity switching to more of a power run game, we need depth behind Sony and Rex.






    What RB would you like the see the Pats target in the mid rounds ?

    Round 4 Pick 9 (DET): Samuel, Deebo, WR, South Carolina (A+)
    Round 4 Pick 22 (SEA): Wise, Daniel, DT, Kansas (A+)

    All depends on who they like in free agency. Maybe Jeremy Hill comes back on the cheap.

    Holyfield goes about 215 lbs.

    The two mid round backs that interest me are Singletary from Florida Atlantic at 225 and snell from Kentucky at 225. Both are bigger and have about the same speed 4.55 or so as holyfield judging from the tape.

    I like Holyfield but RB is one of the more set positional groups on this team, I'd rather have Hill back for pennies

    Michel, White, and Rex are all locked up

    If you have the GIF file, you can just use the image tool (next to the smiley).

    A mid round draft pick is cheaper than most veterans.

    I tried that but it didn’t load. Wanted to use the one with Chris Farley as Norman Schwarzkopf.

    Oh well.

    If he falls to the 7th I’d take him in a heartbeat. If he didn’t play through injuries all year would of been a 2nd round pick. He should of declared last year as most had him as a first rounder

    Would love to take Love pun intended.
    I haven't seen that kind of speed since Jeff Demps.

    Would not be opposed at all to picking up someone who was good in short yardage situations.
