    Hmm..Nope, I think not.

    no he wont. still do not know why so many people think this. Knowshon makes the team regardless of WHO we draft. We could draft trent richardson and lamar miller and knowshon would still make the team.

    How would anyone actually know if we're truly considering an RB early?

    (some snipped for brevity)

    I think much of it depends on how we are drafting this year. If we are drafting by need, then you are right. If we are drafting best player available, it's quite possible we take what we consider the best RB on the board at that time.

    What EFX look like they are doing, IMO, is trying to get impact players and the position only partially matters.

    If those hands are so great why cant he hold onto the football?
    His 10 min of highlights are mainly of him playing WR ...sooo his hands can't be too bad

    Ppl that supposedly watch the Broncos say some pretty absurd things about our players too

    N fumbling issues have nothing to do with pass catching ability

    I'm well aware of where Auburn is located and the reference was implying that you might be a Crimson Tide fan. Tool, Really? Talk about the best you have ... Your reading comprehension must be lacking because I stated that you lived there and never mentioned being from there. I guess I could insert a clever joke about Alabama here but I will refrain.

If you want to switch him to a slot receiver based on his speed fine but the kid is not that great as a RB. Hence why he went undrafted. But even then the kid still can't hold onto the football.
    The discussion was about his hands, not whether he shows up for big games or not. There is that reading comprehension thing again or would this classify as memory retention, I'm not sure ...

    How the hell else would I prove that he has good hands out of the backfield but through stats? By just giving you my unsubstantiated opinion like you did?

    - AU career leader in receptions and receiving yards by a running back
    - 10th-place in AU career receptions (97)
    - Has nine career receiving TD's, averaging 36.7 yards per scoring catch

    Hell, he had 42 receptions in 2009. Maybe you have the kid confused with someone else or maybe it's because you live in Alabama ...

    If you are referring to fumbles, he needs to learn to switch the ball to his outside arm but that can be beaten into him.

    Tatum Bell was a better RB than Moreno. He might've been as soft as charmin tissue but if I could draft him vs Moreno, I'd go with Bell.

    I liked what I saw of him in training camp and he was generating some buzz before he got injured. My expectations are low but he definitely has some potential to get some carries/catches this season.

    I like Mario Fannin, but he is overrated on this forum. He is Tatum Bell with more size to get tough yards. Despite his speed, his agility and ability to change the direction is lacking. His balance is subpar as well. Do I think he can be a valuable role player who breaks off huge gains and an asset in the passing game? Absolutely. I still think the team must invest in a more durable and dependable/versatile runner to pair with McGahee.

    What I can't understand is how people are judging Fannin and labeling him already when they haven't seen him take a snap in the NFL. It's ridiculous
