Re: 2013 LIVE DRAFT THREAD

Probably
Couple I like

Montel Harris, RB, Temple
Height: 5-8. Weight: 208.
40 Time: 4.68.
Projected Round (2012): 7-FA.
4/23/13: Harris averaged 5.7 yards per carry in 2012 as he picked up 1,054 yards and 12 touchdowns on 186 carries. Harris had a record-setting game against Army with 351 yards and seven touchdowns. Making it through the season healthy was big for Harris. He didn't impress at the Combine.

8/16/12: After a rough 2011 season lost to injury, Harris was dismissed from Boston College's program. He considered the NFL Supplemental Draft before landing with Temple to play one more year of college football.

Harris missed the first three games of the 2011 season due to his rehabilitation from knee surgery. He only played in two games all season. Harris ran for 108 yards on 22 carries against Wake Forest. He was injured again and didn't play after Week 5.

Previously, Harris had been a workhorse who had logged a lot of yards and a lot of wear-and-tear. He ran for 1,242 yards and eight touchdowns with an average of 4.6 yards per carry as a junior in 2010. He also logged 18 receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown.

Harris ran for 1,457 yards and 14 scores in 2009, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. He ran for 900 yards with an average of five yards per carry and five scores in 2008, his first season.


Dennis Johnson, RB, Arkansas
Height: 5-9. Weight: 213.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2013): 6-FA.
4/23/13: Johnson had 757 yards on 137 carries (5.5 average) and eight touchdowns in 2012. He caught 25 passes for 160 yards and two scores as well. Johnson gradually earned more playing time over Knile Davis.

8/16/12: Johnson took over the starting running back position after Knile Davis was lost for the 2011 season. Johnson ran for 670 yards (6.3 average) with three touchdowns. He showed nice receiving ability too, making 24 catches for 255 yards and two touchdowns.

Johnson lost his 2010 season to injury. He has been one of the best kick returners in the SEC every year he has played. Johnson has averaged 24.3 yards per return in his career, scoring three touchdowns. He will split carries with Davis in 2012, but Johnson could be a potential third-down back and special teams contributor in the NFL. He figures to be a backup to Davis this season.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

40 Time: 4.50.
Projected Round (2013): 6-FA.
4/23/13: Ford ran for 392 yards on 71 carries (5.5 average) with three touchdowns in 2012. The Tigers continued to employ a big variety of running backs, so it was hard for any of them to really standout. At the Combine, Ford ran well with a faster than expected 40.

8/16/12: Ford ran for 756 yards and seven touchdowns last season. The rotation with Ware hurts Ford's production. He barely led the team in rushing, and the Tigers had three backs go over 500 yards on the ground.

I really dont get why Patton and Okafor are still there
Sometimes we don't get things. I can tell you this, with three rounds of draft down, there is a reason they are still there. You and I may not know why, but professionals for 32 teams do...

I have to go with the professionals.

Hoping something happens so we can clear up some more cap space and get a shot at Okafor.
