Default Gary Russell

5ft 11in
215lbs
MInnesota

How good can this guy be, for those who dont know minnesota(ncaa) runs a 2 back system and this guy paired up with laurence moroney and matched his stats as a sophmore. then he was caught with drugs, kicked off team, gained like 70lbs, and showed up at the NFL combine weighing about 275, running about a 4.8 in the fourty yard dash. since then he lost tons of weight and hopefully got his life back under control.

My point is that if this guy has the ability to be as good as laurence moroney i cant wait to see our running game in the next 2 yrs. i am not saying that in the playoffs he is going to be sweet but once he runs a 4.4 again i would give him a shot at being a huge steal as a free agent pickup.

it's wonderful and amazing that we keep coming up with UFAs out of nowhere, but colbert and company are in a draft day slump. only two above average players, santonio and anthony smith (maybe), out of the last three drafts.

Russell did look good, so did Haynes. I haven't been high on Davenoport since we signed him as many of you know... I hope he does better this week though! Go Dookie!

We'll soon find out. Doing a 4.8 with an extra 70 pounds is pretty freakin' amazing.

Wonder how he'll do with defenders in the backfield before he gets the handoff.

Well, Lawrence Maroney has done about jack squat in NE so far. But don't take my word for it, see what some Pats fans have to say about him:

The worst vision and burst I have ever seen in an NFL running back. I'm honestly not 100% certain that Orlando Pace wouldn't have a better chance of coverting a 3rd and 1 than Maroney.

Words can't describe the Lawrence Maroney experience.
We're NOT replacing Parker, at least anytime soon. Please give it up already.

Heath Miller in 2005 looks pretty solid right now, certainly more so than the backup safety drafted last year. Too early to say how this year's draft plays out - Troy was not regarded highly at this point in his rookie year

i dont think that he was thinking about heath at the time, im pretty sure that we have had a lot of good players in the drafts in the last 3 years but he just forgot, look we also have matt spaeth who looks promising and lamaar woodley,wiliam gay, bryan mcfadden, we have drafted a lot of promising players.
