Next Lynch?

  • I get that we don't need another RB, but it looks like Turbin is destined to be a career backup and may open up a spot for another high upside stash at RB.

    Isaiah Crowell (5'11/215/4.5) reminds me of Marshawn Lynch/Chris Ivory and other than maybe Lache Seastrunk, looks like the most explosive back in this upcoming draft:

    Doesnt seem like he has the initial burst and doesnt have the wiggle. Powerful back tho, for sure.

    Wont disagree... but this guy looks much better than Turbin or Ware and can be had in the middle to late rounds.

  • IMO, unless Turbin can gain 20+ pounds of lower body strength and transition to FB... I hope we trade him for a 6th rounder because he just isn't that good of an RB but would make a quality FB with some hard work. Kind of like how the Seahawks transformed M-Rob into the position back in 2010-2011.

    Really? I think Gurley is the most Beastmodelike RB I've seen. He hits running lanes quickly and blows up anyone who tries to stop him.

  • Living in Athens, I saw the rise and fall of Crowell. The entire school and city was high on him until he decided to ride around with a gun and get kicked off the team. He has the talent for sure, but he would be a risk. But in fact, isn't that what Pete Caroll is all about anyway?

  • We already have the closest thing to Lynch that we will find for a bit. Spencer Ware, look up his highlights. Everyone ALWAYS called him the next Marshawn Lynch.

    Since you live in Georgia, what's your opinion of Gurley?

  • With this FO I would not be surprised if the next Lynch is in the draft. We have a very nice stable at RB and Lynch is Super reliable. I give Marshawn at least 2 more years. He has played with those back problems since day 1 and has looked Super Human in doing so.

    I kind of see PC bringing in a RB every year for a look. It is his bread and butter. This team was established by Lynch, so they have set the bar very high.

    Stankey is stanky, I agree.

    Bishop Sankey though? Stud. A better version of Gio Bernard. Too bad he doesn't really fit Tom Cable. He'd be a great pickup for a team like Detroit, Denver, or Kansas City though.

    I doubt we'll see Seattle draft a RB. Their RB stable is bursting at the seams right now.

  • If PC wants to stockpile a RB on the practice squad (probably a good idea), a later round/UDFA RB with a somewhat similar game to beast-mode may be:
    RB-Antonio Andrews, Western Kentucky, 6-0, 219, 2013: 267/1730/16 td's, 6.5 per carry + 41 rec. for 478 yds.

    I don't think any D1 teams even gave him an offer. But his cousin just signed with Oregon to play corner.

  • Lynch, Ware, Michael. Ware has the most similar running style to beast mode that I've ever seen. He also got more playing time this year than Michael for a reason.

    I think Ware has power, but doesnt have any wiggle or burst. His future is at FB where Coleman has taken an early lead.

    I dont think the Hawks are long for Turbin.

    Michael is clearly the way forward but it doesn't hurt to have an insurance policy.

  • I remember posting that video here right after we drafted him. Highlights are deceiving. The guy has something like 4.6 speed and doesn't have the lateral quickness to make defenders miss. Good player for sure but not one that can replace marshawn. At least in my own mind.
