Re: Matt Forte Video

NEWSFLASH: LSU is not a c-usa team, LSU are National Champions from the SEC.

Matt Forte tore LSU up.

Re: Matt Forte Video

you must have much lower standards than i do....
73 yds 0tds 21yds rec is NO WHERE CLOSE to "tearing it up"

decent performance, but far even really good

4.46 speed will allow you to run away from c-usa players, but average LBs in the NFL run that....

he seemed to be a big play threat in college, but without the elite NFL type speed he will not be able to get the same kind of runs

he kind of looks like a reggie with less speed and less quickness

Re: Matt Forte Video

Good point. I'm not sold on the guy either. I think he's a good back in a bad league, but I don't really understand what all the hype is about. I think he'd be a good late first day pick.

He's someone I'd look at in the 3rd or 4th....no earlier!!!! There are more proven RB's in this draft at better bargains.

Re: Matt Forte Video

The Bears are showing a lot of interest in Tulane RB Matt Forte.

Originally considered a third- or fourth-round pick, Forte could move into the back half of the second round after his strong combine showing. He's in Detroit this weekend and has drawn interest from Atlanta and Houston as well.

Re: Matt Forte Video

I have no real clue on how this guy projects at the NFL level. His 4.46 speed is most certainly good enough. I know that video was against some crappy teams, but I do like the way he runs. It looks like this guy has some pretty decent moves and pretty good vision. With the right training, he looks like he should be able to do some good at the NFL level.
