Beane still looking to add big bodied RB to roster

They have an incredible blind spot to a good offensive line and WRs. 

It's like they are banking on Allen to be evasive and run for 1st downs more than they should be.

Le'Veon 'Levon' Bell busy? ¬†We've had members pounding the table for him before. ¬†And we had a damned entertaining thread out of it. ūüėĀ

Might as well give Adrian Peterson a call. He's known for being a bruiser.

I think he wants to convert 3rd and 1 without getting Allen killed.

True, but it’s just strange he keeps 4 of the same o lineman, but then brings in a below average run blocker. (McGovern)

 

Their pass blocking should be better this year, but you can make the argument on paper their run blocking will be worse.

Liking Foreman.  Age 27 at the start of next season.  Weighs 230 something and racked up close to 1000 yards after McCaffery was traded to SF.

Not afraid to run through or over somebody.

Agreed. He seems to be underrated. I’m so tired of Panther players but whatever

 

beyond him, Fournette or Dalvin (if he gets released)

 

King Henry would of course be great

With Miles Sanders leaving Philly, I think that makes the likelihood they will take Robinson at #10 skyrocket.

 

With Carolina signing Sanders, that means it's all but certain Foreman is done there.  I hope Beane is taking a serious look at him. 6'1" 236. Not going to get much bigger than that at RB unless you're talking Derrick Henry.

I think the best bet is to draft one.  Find some 230lb back on day three of the draft from a smaller FBS program who has shown an ability to pass protect and not fumble and bring him in on a cheap contract.   Supposedly there's not much of a learning curve for RBs going from college to the pros. 

 

He'll likely be the change of pace back, short yardage back and should be able to contribute right away. 

 

On the cheap.

Is there one (or more)?

I think it should be a no-brainer they go with Foreman.  I'm actually really surprised Carolina picked up Sanders, which mean they are moving on from Foreman or Foreman would be RB2.

 

Foreman ran for 877 yds in their final 11 games, including five 100-yd games, which was good for 4th in all of football.  And he did it all behind a line ranked 17th in run blocking per PFF.

Perfect fit
