40 just looks like he’s a PS player.

 

Completely agree.... if Murphy doesn’t make the team #22 is perfect!!!

Even though he didn't catch much in college I think he'll be used a lot in the passing game. They seemed to try and see his hand skills in preseason a bit

i bet Gore (love that name) is RB 1.

 

Does Wade make the roster due to his dynamic ability?

Thought he lacked speed and burst in the preseason games.

 

Hopefully the bold move works out for McBeane.

 

Thanks for never ending enthusiasm !!

How’s Gore going to look after a few games though, I think he only has value in a limited role. 

 

Gore is the terminator.

 

Blew out both his knees in college and still has a 15 year career. He lives football and does everything possible to keep playing.

Murphy was one of the early cuts announced.

He is not as fast as Shady.....but he gets to his top speed very quickly which means he has excellent burst.

 

What I see are a lot more productive shorter runs.....wont break games open with one run but when you look back at the box score he will be a monster

I took him in the 11th round of our FF draft. A few people rolled their eyes. We'll see who gets the last laugh.

He needs to switch his number to 25 immediately.

Is Singletary really a #1 back?

 

Undersized, lacks power, and slow as *****. IDK.

What do you think the Bills saw in him?

I'm not saying you're not a god, but I picked him up like 3 weeks ago... So that would make me a better god?... Maybe like a Thor/Loki type thing?

Not sure. They obviously liked him to draft him in the 3rd round.

 

Just not sure he's a true number one back.

I'm not sure. There are different types of #1 RB's. He's much more of a Barry Sanders shifty type than a Jim Brown power type. Actually, he is nearly identical to Barry Sanders in every way except one: speed. Barry Sanders ran a sub-4.4 40-yd dash in his prime. Devin Singletary clocked in at 4.66, which is atrocious.

I am still nervous about Singletary's capacity to be a true 3 down NFL back. 

 

I guess we are about to find out.

I don't know either and I watched a lot of tape on him pre-draft. I saw him as a change of pace guy and certainly initially as a 3rd down back. He pass protects pretty well for a guy coming out, I was never worried about his ability as a receiver despite FAU not using him that way and he has some elusiveness. I mainly worry about him on early downs when teams are keying in on the run.

I see the committee as Gore/Single rotating series, with Yeldon spelling them throughout the drives. 

 

Zeke Elliots first year, JG sat Zeke every third series for a number of reasons. I like this approach

RB1 = the player who leads the team in carries. Not who lines up the first play of the game. Do you think a 36 year old or a rookie will lead the team in carries?

Wouldn't that be something?

 

What round do you draft Singletery in?
