gore and coffee may be tough downhill runners, but they are not big lol they won't consistently run over people or move a pile
this huge f**ker will run over people and get those short yardage conversions and wear down the D
good points. plus, Dixon is probably mostly insurance in case either Gore or Coffee gets hurt, so we can still run the same kind of offense... (I would have preferred a speedy back as well, but I don't hate this pick).

F***** retarded i thought we needed a speedster instead we draft another power back..dont make sense
"I've watched the 49ers," Dixon said. "They're my favorite team. You can ask anybody I know. I've been preaching the 49ers. This is a dream come true."

And, I was thinking about NickV's question about who the odd-man out is at RB...I think Dixon and Coffee will be in competition, but I could see us keeping Gore-Coffee-Dixon as well as MRob for special teams. If we want to pound the ball as much as this draft implies, having 3 bruisers would make it much easier...But I think Dixon will have to fight for a spot...
