Why trade back if you are not getting decent value. Or if the players you like are not there. If he is the best option then take him
He's not in any scenario, period. Besides, he just wanted a free plane ride home for the night. He'll go no further than eight.

Likely but there are some issues. Injury, yoyo weight and not very good with cuts. The weight to me is a problem. Why show up to the biggest event of your life with it being a question. I mean he showed up much heavier than he ever played. Still did well but why even do it. He could have easily knocked it down 5lbs and nobody would have cared.

I'm not drafting a guy at 11 who I think has 5 good years in him.

He dominated at times. Reminded me of Bo Jackson too. But he's limited in a sense and comes with a ton of wear (see point #2) Was really only shut down by Bama and that's because 1) The D was able to key on him and 2) Les Miles is an idiot.

I like him at 32

Now we're talking sense...

Drafting in the top 15, I want a guy who's playing 10 years for my franchise, his rookie contract + option, and a four year extension deal with option...

Fournette is gonna be a power back who takes a lot of punishment...

Whereas, McCaffrey will be lining up in more positions with a little less punishment between the tackles...

He's got to be an uber defender if he's front seven...

Mostly QBs, X Receivers, stud offensive linemen and terrific DBs are what I'm looking to take in the top 15 unless they're a real special skill set; McCaffrey seems to be an exception this year...

Re: Fournette and Saints rendevous

Hell no. Unless we could trade him for a 15 or so pick in the first and get a 2nd. RB is pretty far back on our offensive list. Guard, WR, TE, RT, and even QB are more needed if we were to go offense. I don't think he's gonna be all that anyway.

Click bait.

What can I say, I'm an LSU alum so I wish LF all the best wherever he lands. When healthy, dude was a beast. Absolute beast.
