    And, before anyone asks...

    Do y'all feel good about our current RB depth chart behind Jacobs?

    Jacobs, as you'll recall, being the guy who's never been a featured RB before...and got hurt at least once when he had the opportunity to secure that role at Bama.

    The same Bama who hasn't produced a bellcow RB in the Nick Saban era.


    Exactly. RB will definitely be relevant to us next offseason. This thread has value.

    This kid will be climbing boards. Reminds me of Jacobs actually. Same build. Similar game. Vaughn a little faster I think.

    Yeah he’s a little bit of an unknown. Figured I’d throw out last years highlights to open some eyes ‘round here.

    I remember y'all pimping Ronald Jones... sigh...


    How does an NFL RB not see that A-gap opening up as he gets to the line?

    That's vision. Or a lack thereof.

    Thats a cool camera angle. You get to see just how bad the vision was.

    Also Jones went 38th overall. Its not like people being high on him here was an outlier.

    He will be one of about 150 guys in that draft who busts.

    I like the RB group currently. It could def be upgraded eventually but its far from a problem area. Im guessing the perfect pairing with Jacobs would be a speed merchant RB who has another gear. Someone to return kicks/punts after Harris would be ideal.

    I still want my Zack Crockett TD vulture.

    No real reason, just because.

    We have a 21 year old Crockett on the practice squad. He plays RB. I don't know if he's any good though.

    We don't need Crockett if we have Marcus Allen, right?

    Absolutely not. I swear Richard gets worse every time he steps on the field. Washington hasn't shown anything either. We clearly want to be a run first team so a RB behind Jacobs will have to be a priority this offseason. Losing Crowell in the offseason hurt us a little more than I expected... he'd be a good fill-in type power back.

    I might actually consider Ajayi as a short term plug.
