Mendehall has not distanced himself from the rest of the class to me other than his combine speed. Not to mention....was Mendenhall mentioned among the elite college backs before last year? NOOOOO. I would rather a guy who has been consistent & has better value, like say a Rice, Smith, etc... in the 3rd. My personal opinion is Rice. He's done it every year at Rutgers, even when they were stacking 8 in the box against him. Look....the guy reminds me of Emmitt Smith. Okay...I put it out there. Poke your fun, guys. I've compared the kid to the NFL's all time rushing leader. Sorry...I just see the same ability, style, & heart in the kid.
You dummy... you asked for it. LOL

Just the leading pass rusher? Let's not forget that Emmitt also has a helluva quarterback rating. What number is perfect?

To my knowledge, Emmitt Smith only attempted one pass in his entire career -- which went for a touchdown in Arizona, against the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS. With that in mind, I think it's time we shelved talk about running backs and got busy drafting some defense.

Re: Pierre = Real Deal?

As a building/remodeling contractor, I have to bid on jobs all the time. It's the hardest part of my job to speculate what a project is going to cost to complete, though my bid formula is simple;
1) Add up all known cost like materials, permits, special tools, etc.
2) Estimate uknown-cost based on experience like labor, time to complete, potential problems, etc.

I apply that same formula here with Pierre with the Saints.
1) What we know; He's not a Fumbalina, he can score, he's not fragile, he can catch, he's quick, he can make people miss, he's strong enough to break tackles and get 1st downs, he has a great attitude, he can make your ground game legit, he can play ST's, and he's young like a new pair of leather boots and he's only gonna get better.
2) Unknown's about Pierre; ... very dang little.

Total = Real Deal

Why are you trying to confuse us with facts and logic? What's your agenda?
