    He'll be worth a 3rd/4th rounder and he's long gone by then. If he by some miracle is still available, I'm all for it then.

    Why, b/c of the OL they have, that's partially true, but he's still a good RB, getting 36 total TD's is pretty damn impressive.

    I'd take him in the 2nd.

    I can't believe people are still basing what players run on their 40 with no pads on and how that affects their draft stock. It's crazy. Ball has good enough game speed in pads and is fluid with all his cuts. Who cares how fast he can run in a straight line, give me a guy who doesn't lose speed when he's making guys miss or running players over. I have seen enough Wisconsin games this year and each and every week the kid impresses me more and more. Even if he runs a 4.55 40, he's still a 1st round talent in my books. He's a shifty runner and a proven touchdown vulture. But, like I said before, it all depends on which teams need a runningback. If he's sitting there, say in the 20s, Denver should take this kid in the first. Why risk losing out on a potential star?

    Ball is nothing like Calhoun or Dayne.

    Ball has burst which separates him from other Wisconsin backs. He has lateral agility, which separates him from other Wisconsin backs.

    If Trent is gone i would rather take Lamar Miller in the 1st instead.
    I've been on his wagon since the beginning of the season.
    I would take Ball in the 2nd but not 1st.

    I hope not. I don't want a Defensive Tackle early. I would prefer to trade back. I do not think anyone at our pick is a must have. I think if we can get some picks in the second, third and fourth we can add depth and talent to the team.

    We'd probably have to take Ball in the 1st or 2nd. I'd rather have have Doug Martin since we could get him in the 3rd/4th.

    And I wouldn't want Montee Ball in the 1st round. In the 2nd yes.

    davis is a junior this year, he will be a senior next year, i will bet he comes out next year if not this year.

    Davis has more homerun speed for a back his size sense mcfadden, who i would compare him to. a high 4.2s low 4.3s in the forty, at 6'0 220

    Well he can file for a medical exemption to play. Depending on their recruiting class(which is shaping up for a good one) he may comeback for a championship

    Who was the last runningback to do that?

    Well if you watch a lot of Wisconsin then you'd know that Ron Dayne was one of the most dominant college running backs of all time. He has the career rushing record, if you don't think he deserved the Heisman you didn't watch him.

    Two different head coaches, different decades, don't compare the too.

    You can't honestly watch Montee Ball and say this kid isn't good. He even does it in the passing game. Wisconsin's first complete back in a long time!

    And if I'm not mistaken Alabama has two highly rated Offensive Tackles along with a top 3 Center, are you going to bash Trent Richardson for that? I mean Mark Ingram won a Heisman there, it must be the system!!!

    If Fluker, Jones, and Vlachos all come out this year they will all be drafted in the top 4 rounds, Fluker and Jones being fringe first round picks. But you aren't allowed to mention that. Wisconsin is the only line that produces quality prospects.

    But for real, c'mon guys. Look at these two kids;

    One is 6'1 250 pounds, has no burst, has no lateral agility, north south runner, touchdown machine, runs a 4.7

    The other is 5'11 220 pounds, great burst, elite lateral agility, complete back, can run inside or out, touchdown machine, runs a 4.5

    Guess who is who.
