    Anyone watched any of that All or Nothing: A Season With The Arizona Cardinals on Amazon.com?

    [Season 1 Episode 2] :21m mark had the execs of Arizona go see a college game where Georgia Tech was one of the teams. They were blown away by the physique and size of Gotsis. President said something like, holy crap - look at the trunk on that dude.

    pretty cool show in the same vein as Hard Knocks

    I was agreeing with you that he doesn't need to be a playmaker...just able to open holes....

    Hopefully this kid can acheive the cult status like Kuhn has during his career.
    watched him his whole career he is a complete FB can do it all and I expect from day 1 he'll be at minimum real good ST guy...the new offense Nebraska ran this year helped him a great deal

    what kubiak really needs out of a FB is to be a dominant blocker. everything else is pretty minor.

    So found this video on Janovich and thought it was solid showing his running blocking and special teams. And I think that special teams is why he was probably the pick as having a FB that plays special teams helps in fitting him in the roster.
    Looks like he could be a very good player on this team, love how he doesn't dance around the hole he puts his head down makes someone miss or runs them over and just keeps picking up yards. Would like to see how well he catches the ball out the backfield if he can be a threat in the passing game aswell we have a player who will be on this team a very long time.

    I saw that Jack Allen went undrafted. Connor Cook got blasted and fell on draft boards for not being voted a team captain. Then Allen, who was elected team captain over Cook at Michigan State, did not get drafted. The NFL is hilarious. 4-year starter, 46 starts, 1st-Team All-American, team leader. Opened holes for Le'Veon Bell and Jeremy Langford. Undrafted. Wow.

    Yup. I was digging around to find guys that seemed to match up with what we do and kept stumbling across hybrid Safety/OLB types.

    Love the Janovich pick.
    He will have the MOST impact in 2016...of any drafted player this weekend.
    -
    I reckon they can all be good.. but they all gonna ease in behind a veteran player.

    We will see janovich starting in the Carolina game... He is our Starting FB as of today.
    He aint sitting behind anybody. Just how it is.
    FB is gonna be a big part of the Kubiak offense I am sure.

    While I was looking at various Safeties it seemed to me that, as a pro team that uses the position in creative ways, it was important to pick someone who showed a lot of versatility. Same thing at the ILB spot. We can't really grab a typical college ILB and plug him in here regardless of how good he looked playing in college.

    I like Tucson, and Mount Lemmon, too. They know how to cook chile in Tucson.

    The Lobos and Wildcats played a good game in the NM Bowl.

    Wade is creative, maybe we see some 3-3-5 coming on Defense?
