Ok so one of our biggest topics of discussion around this forum is the FB position (god thats sad). Now I personally want a FB that can do more than just block, I want him to be a weapon as well. People round here loved Lawrence Vickers, and I can understand that he was a very good FB for us, he was also a power back when he was at colorado and made a pretty good transition to FB. This guy is what I believe we were hoping vickers could do with his running back back ground Jerome Smith #45 Syracuse University. He is coming back to cuse or this season so will have to be next year but I like him as a prospect. He ran for over 100o yards this season and is a viable weapon out of the backfield.

Zach Boren FB Ohio State Sr 6-0 245
Taimi Tutogi FB Arizona Sr 6-1 260
Kyle Juszczyk FB Harvard Sr 6-1 248
Tommy Bohanon FB Wake Forest Sr 6-1 247
Braden Wilson FB Kansas State rSr 6-3 254

Here is 5 guys I'd look at in the bottom part of the draft to play FB for the Browns.

Vickers made a decent transition, though for a RB he never looked that great carrying the ball. It's important to remember however, that Vickers didn't play much as a rookie, he sat behind Terrelle Smith while making the transition to FB.

Do we want to carry two full backs on the roster while trying to convert one?

Forget the 2014 draft...I am working on my last mock for this year....(I saw an article on the Browns website yesterday doing a mock draft...and they agree with my mock of taking FS TJ Mcdonald in the 4th...I digress)..

But the kid I want to convert to a FB next season is the TB from Arkansas
Ronnie Wingo Jr. 6'2 232lbs....He is one of three of my "Priority FA's"
