I'm really leaning towards sticking with Lamar Miller and allowing Daniel Thomas to walk.

Instead of drafting Mason I would much rather we not give up on Miller and bring a a FA RB like Toby Gerhart or LaGarrete Blount for the 1-2 punch.


Blount? No thank you

Maybe not Blount but a veteran back. Not sure Gerhart fits that category of a zone run blocking scheme though. He has always played in power run oriented offenses.

I really liked Blount coming out of college, and while he IS limited he is very physical and IMO would be a great complimentary RB to Miller. It would also take a piece away from a divisional rival and probably wouldn't cost much.

He's good for a cheap shot every now and then too.

I am not big on Mason I would like a all purpose back one who can do it all I am not saying Mason cant block or be productive in the passing game but he has not shown he can do either.

Last year I said LeVeon Bell was the best all around back this year I am starting to believe its Charles Sims WVU he is the best receiving RB one of the best RB in PASS PROTECTION and running style like Matt Forte. If we do go RB early no more one trick pony's I want Charles Sims he will be a late 2 by draft day. I prefer we wait till late in the draft for RB though

Quote:
NFL Films' Greg Cosell says Auburn's Tre Mason is the running back that he's most intrigued with in the 2014 RB class.
"I think he can be a foundation back in the NFL," Cosell said. The analyst isn't alone in his admiration, as NFL.com's Gil Brandt ranked Mason as the draft's best running back back in January. The 5-foot-9, 205-pound back finished last season with 1,816 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns and was a Heisman finalist. Mason, who bolted school after his junior campaign, received a third-round grade from the NFL's advisory board. We think that's about right.

I think he will cost a 1st round pick, do not think I would want to do that.

I think he gets drafted in the 2nd.

If he is still around in the 3rd and we pass on him then I will be slightly disappointed.

I think i would be cool if we took him in the 2nd round. With the addition of Brandon Albert, I still want to get help for the O line, (Best Player on the Board, would be great) even trading back would be ok.

There is no scenerio of the Fins passing a RB will I be disappointed. I am a big fan of drafting a RB every two years but am not in support of taking one before round 4. Lamar Miller is fine. Miami needs a power back. It would be a wasted pick in my opinion.

No RB who was a top 10 rusher, otherwise than Alfred Morris, was drafted later than the 4th last year. In the top 20; Zac Stacy(5th), Chris Ivory(undrafted), and Fred Jackson(undrafted), none rushed for over 1,000 yards. If you mean before the 4th in this draft then I kinda' agree.

You don't need a top 10 rusher to have team success in the NFL

I don't see much difference between Mason and Davonte Freeman. If Freeman played in a read option run offense and got a larger share of the carries...And they have almost the exact same height & weight

Freeman: 173att 1,045yd 5.9ypc - 34% of team carries
Mason:::: 283att 1,638yd 5.7ypc - 42% of team carries

If we ever learned how to run screen plays....if we ever designed pass plays for them......if we ever learned to zone block......if we ever learned how to throw the deep ball.

Then a good RB would be a very important part of the team. Next to the center and QB he is likely to touch the ball the most.

I can not see taking a RB in round 1, see DTRB even Round 2 would be a stretch, they have to be VERY special, round 3 plus is a good place to start for most RB's Mason will come off the board late 1st round, early 2nd round.
