Round 3) Michael Bush (maybe..depending on medical prognosis)..Dwayne Wright

Round 4) Chris Henry (Will be overdrafted due to workout numbers)

Round 5) Deshawn Wynn (maturity/character issues)

Round 6) Nate Ilaoa ....Germaine Race

Round 7) Tyrone Moss .... Danny Ware

UFA) Alvin Banks...Lonta Hobbs...Ryan Cole....Jason Colson..Deshawn Baker...
i forgot about Hobbs and Moss they are actually pretty good. we have a history of using undrafted RBs the last couple of years (Kuhn and of course Willie Parker)

I was adamant about micheal bush at pick 46. I still am in some ways, but I watched his video that he sent to all the teams, showing that he has been working out. In the video his legs appear to have no muscle definition whatsoever, now of course I am not a scout nor do I work in the medical field, but I believe that the fact his legs are toothpicks might have a little to do with the broken leg earlier in the season. He also only had that one year, his junior year, with more than 100 carries. So the more I look at it, the more I am convinced hometown boy Tony Hunt is the choice.

I still stand by it... "Big Nasti" would be a big addition if we can snake him in the late rounds... After seeing him bowl through people in their bowl game I was sold on his physique... Bruising and deceptively quick through the gap...

BUT, I STILL stand by what else I said... we should not take a RB on the first day...

Michael Bush doesn't impress me... Remember Willis McGahee? Remember Willis McGahee after he busted his leg up? (No one is going to remember Willis McGahee after he is buried into the 20 yard line at Hines Field... )

I realize dudes break their legs in football... Some bounce back just fine...

But what you have here is a kid fresh out of college, already a lot of wear and tear, unproven at the next level... You're really gonna throw a 3rd pick out the window on that?

I like Nate also....some draft boards show him as a UFA...but I think he could go as early as the 5th round.
