    With Tampa has acquired another 7 round pick. I think Tampa could trade Rb Doug Martin for a 4th or 5th Rd pick. If Tampa did the trade then Tampa could have a selection of these draft choices of their chosing.David Cobb-Minn;Karlos Williams-Fsu;Matt Jones-Fla;Malcolm Brown-Tx;Josh Robinson-Miss St. or John Crackett-N Dakota st. I think Tampa would have good choices available.

    Probably can forget about RB’s since we threw away a 5th round pick. I’d keep what we have. Why isn’t PR and the other media getting all over L & L for not upgrading the OL? Seriously, Gilchey is still on this team. I get it that we will draft 1 or 2 new OL, but who is going to help now from getting our new QB from running around like a chicken with his head cut off?

    For being 321 pounds, Matt Jones has some speed.

    1. 3.1


      If he was 321, he would be our star Offense Lineman.

    I love this RB class. Love it. I think it’s right up there with the WR and OG positions as being the best overall positions in this draft class. I like M. Davis and I think he’ll be a good NFL RB. However, I love T. Coleman. He and MLB E. Kendricks are the only guys I’d be okay taking with our 2nd round pick that wasn’t an O-lineman.

    As a Canes fan, I can say that Duke Johnson is one of the best RBs that I’ve seen in a Cane uni. He’s also a class individual that’s all heart. Reminds me of Warrick Dunn. e

    1. 5.1


      Yeah, I like Duke Johnson also E. You’re right about the heart as he runs with a lot of determination. He’s a guy that I can see making something out of nothing at the NFL level.

    I’m not sure I understand Mike Davis in the first three rounds with all of the other higher ranked guys around….seems to suggest some kind of serious run on RBs in round 2 and 3 the likes of which we have never seen. I also don’t understand why we would want to replace one short bowling ball RB who drafted in the 1st round with another short bowling ball RB in the 3rd round. I think if we happen to take a RB its going to be late….besides we have super star what’s-his-name from the third round last year….
