Yeah, I thought the pick would be Balmer after all the O linemen went, but I agree that Mendenhall is probably the best RB in the draft.

He is powerful and hits the hole well, then has a burst to get thru it. Kind of reminds me of Eggerin James. On the other hand McFadden reminds me of Reggie Bush lite.

I like the pick. He was the best athlete available. I would still like to see an O lineman drafted in round 2 or 3.
