BOTTOM LINE Former three-star recruit who turned that a chip on his shoulder into a 2,000-yard junior season. Foreman has outstanding foot quickness and wiggle for a back his size, but will need to run behind his pads and with more aggression on the next level. Teams could be split on his draft value as some may covet his size and athleticism while others will be concerned about a lack of third down value. Ultimately he has the talent to be a good NFL starter, but he's still a work in progress.


Great pick. Should be a perfect tandem with Miller. I hate UT with a passion but Foreman can play.

Great pick, but another non starter when we have some huge holes on the roster.

Well, I might have some mild bias in this selection. Laughing

That said, I watched him near every week and I think he's an amazing complement to Lamar Miller. He will occasionally make a boneheaded play with the football, but in the trenches, he's a straight-up bulldozer. I love this pick, and I'm happy to see him go from burnt orange to deep steel blue.

Well, I officially sense a theme to this years draft. It's all about productive college players. While not crazy about yet another year without touching a safety on day one or two, I gotta admit this one makes all the sense in the world. It was absolutely absurd watching O'Brien ramming Lamar Miller in between the tackles last year and goodness knows I have wanted Alfred Blue's useless skillset of running into piles and falling down off this roster the past two seasons. Given the obvious character issues with Mixon and Cook, Freeman could easily be the 3rd best back in the draft and considering the first two went in the top 8 overall, getting him late in the 3rd is rock solid. I think he would have gone higher if not for being a bit one dimensional, but we don't need a pass catcher with Miller around, so I think the form a potent punch and we know O'Brien is going to run and run some more, especially with a rookie QB. Many projecting him going to us in the 2nd, so seems like good value.
