Default Drafting a FB

What do you think about getting a FB in one of the later rounds? Somebody that can really block and get that one yard when we need it. I really like Jorvorskie Lane out of Texas A&M, Brannan Southerland from GT (
) and Conredge Collins out of Pitt. A solild FB would really help the offense and get the running game going even with a not so solid line.

a real leadblocker in the mold of dan kreider is quinn johnson out of LSU... played LB early on and switched to FB... at least we know he likes to hit people..

he'd be a nice FA pickup...

javorskie lane is an over weight BUM...

he is good for a few plays and then he needs a breather.... too risky i think

2193 yards... 4.5 ypc...and 49 TD's

Holds A&M's TD record

Plays both HB and FB

Has played through this season with a neck stinger...which is why he played sporadically.

"BUM's" usually dont accumalate 49 rushing TD's.

Where do you think Lane goes though? Maybe in the 4th or 5th round? I really doubt that we draft a FB and if we do, it will be a 7th rounder or maybe a UFA.

Southerland is predicted as a 5th rounder...I have seen Lane from 5th round to UFA...I think that those that have actually seen Lane have him rated higher, and the draftniks that are just looking at his weight and havnt seen him in action drop him because he doesnt fit the "mold".
