  • Kind of surprised they'd go FB.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • Kinda a derp pick to me. Why not PFA for a FB? We already have two, and the value of a fb is just so incredibly low.

  • It's obvious they're converting him to guard. He's short enough so that Russell Wilson can see over him.

    It's the 7th round. Maybe they don't like the FB options in the UDFA market. You take a guy here because you want control of him without having to recruit. Positions of bigger "need" are easier to sell to recruits on the UDFA market.

  • Seems to make sense to acquire a FB for us. I had thought Spencer Ware looks more like a tailback than a fullback.

    Agreed. Limiting Ware to FB would be a waste IMO. Has real potential as a running back. Need more competition for Coleman.

    Maybe if his name was "Short," but at 244 lbs he is anything but small.

    If the FO wanted him, why should they risk not getting him in UDFA?

    Nice feel good story...

  • He looks great in the OP video.

    Legitimate fullback.

    Relentless blocker.

    Catches the ball.

    Really interesting pick ...... especially for a 7th round.

    I give the pick two thumbs up :th2thumbs:

    Maybe before Arkansas's strength & conditioning coach got a hold of him last year. Here's a before & after pic of him from January '13 to July '13.

  • Just said the Hawks are one of his favorite teams because of the way they play. Sounds excited to be drafted by us.

  • In watching that video cut up, it takes a while to get over his unique size, but he seems quite adept at identifying his assignment and actually sticking a quality block. Looks pretty natural as a FB, which wasn't necessarily the case with Coleman early last season (though Coleman probably has a more desirable build). Kind of excited to see how this will look at the NFL level during pre-season.

  • Watch how fast he gets to his block. I expect his running back didn't complain about his blocking skills.

  • I actually really like this pick. If this guy works out he could add to our backfield the kind of blocker we're going to need for Christine Michael - Michael is no marshawn lynch, he's going to need a good FB to maximize what he can do and this guy seems like a traditional blocking type fullback that can go out and catch the ball and make some plays as well when you need him too. strong, but unique enough to do some other things too.

  • I thought this was a laughable pick, that is until I watched the video provided. He has natural leverage to take on bigger defensive players, great initial quickness, tenacious as hell as a blocker, he plays to the echo of the whistle, nice hands for a FB, his head coach loves him because of his physical style of play...he will defiantly help improve our running game. He will no doubt be a fan favorite, and I could easily see him getting multiple Pro Bowls.

    Excellent post. Pretty much what I saw. I like how he stays with his block, and if he takes his guy out of the play, he looks for someone else. I also found it interesting that Arkansas left him back in pass pro a lot and isolated him on the DE on the edge quite a bit.

    5'8" and 244 lbs, is the epitome of a FB. This gives the preseason a little bit of intrigue for me.

  • Damn! Only problem was, the guy still made the tackle. Granted, 10 yards down the field, but that was a hell of a way to fight off that Mack truck of a block!

    If I'm Pete and John, I'm finding out who made that tackle, helmet-less and all, and offering him a UDFA spot if he ain't drafted.
