It is so hard to pick on the kid because he is always on the field and does so much.

That is why went with PT and Wes to compare with. If PT and Wes genes were used to produce a child it would McCaffrey.

sure he would lacking in areas from both but you have admit being just a sophomore he will be fun to watch develop.
I get where you're coming from, and I'm not trying to be overly cynical, but I just think he kind of fits the mold of the college star who never does much at the next level. I get the feeling that he's pretty much maxed out. I feel the same way about a guy like Leonard Fournette, not in terms of what I think he'll do at the next level, but I mean I don't think Leonard can get much better at this level. The next step for him is learning the speed of the NFL, and that will only come with experience that he won't get until after next year.

Honestly, if McCaffrey is going to make it I think he would have to switch to receiver, altogether, and maybe have a chance to be a Wes Welker. But getting back to the original post about whether we should draft him (even though we can't this year), I wouldn't want to draft another project, unless it's late. He's got skill, I just don't like his build as a runner, and if he tried to add too much weight it might slow him down as he just doesn't have much of a frame to work with.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

He will not be around late in the draft. You're talking about a guy who just broke Berry Sanders all purpose record. He is probably the Heisman winner this year. The kid is a flat out stud.

Re: Christian McCaffrey Thread

How about we skip RB in the draft and focus on the trenches early on? Maybe if he was an experienced WR I would want him.

Luxury pick on a gadget player.

If we had 9 or 10 picks, I could see it. But for now (or next year actually) I'll pass.

Re: Christian McCaffrey Thread

If he's a nasty DT that can stuff the run and press the pocket on pass plays, then I'm all about this dude. Otherwise, nope.

Re: Christian McCaffrey Thread

Here in Denver we hear a lot about him because of his dad, Ed McCaffery , who still lives here. Christian is only a sophomore.
