Odds are, Dwyer will be a camp cut in a long line of fatback camp cuts.

No amount of fatback lovers coming out of the woodwork to proclaim him the next fatback Messiah will matter.

But I'll give him a chance, like anybody else.

This was truly the only pick I absolutely love. From what I can gather from all the research I've done on this guy, we got a 1st round talent in round 6. I really don't understand how he fell that far, I don't think the scheme he played at GT will really inhibit his production in our system and the drug test as has been stated a million times was just because of prescription medication. I love Mendenhall but I honestly would not be surprised if Dwyer is challenging him, or has even claimed the starting role from him like 2 years from now. At the very least, barring injury I see them splitting time almost evenly by the end of the season. We've got our own version of the two-headed monster on our hands, folks.

Remember, Redman is our future starting Running Back. Dwyer doesn't have the "suddenness and glide".

Exactly I think no one should be dissapointed with this pick.
