Tell that to Steve Smith, or any of Indy's receivers.

Bush has great speed for a RB, but not elite speed for a WR. He's more quick than he is fast. Where he would excel is putting him into a slot position now and again and getting yards after the catch, but not as a regular position. Why make him into something he's not?

Ummm Bush probably runs somewhere between a 4.25 - 4.35. I'd say that's good speed for a receiver.

Bush has the speed and hands to be a wr in the nfl. My thoughts on him though, we've seen what he can do as a rb, why move him? You can still have him running patterns out of the backfield and occassionally lining up as a wr. But he's a rb, that's where he should spend most of his time in the nfl.

WHAT???? This guy is one of the fastest players in the last 10 years.

I think that if we did take him, he could be used as a RB, WR, KR, and PR. 4 positions in one? Not bad. However, I still think we need to take Brick or Hawk in the first.

Dude I know what I'm talking about. This was coming right out of high school when he was 20 pounds lighter. 4.4 in the 40 is no where near elite speed. And he didn't run at the combine. He wouldn't be a great every-down WR. In the slot now and then, absolutely, but not as a SE or FL.

I'd rather have a a bunch of picks! I was intrigued by the Jets trading us 2 1st rounders... but the idea of holding the 2 spot and Bush being there has my head spinning! If we could find someone crazy enough to put together a Ditka/Williams type trade I'd jump all over it! It would set us up like nobodys business! I admit the prospect of having a Bush type talent is exciting but so is the prospect of drafting 3 or 4 key players that could be here for years to come.

i say trade down or stay at 2 and take hawk...we need him more than bush.....but don't get me wrong bush is a heel of a football player ......but the era of selecting the best overall player with our pick is over...we need to fill our holes at some point and don't know if i would pass on hawk
