Washington RB Chris Polk
Polk was a bit of a surprise participant after initially being considered an early-entry prospect. He missed all but the first two games of his freshman season in 2008 due to a shoulder injury, which would have qualified him for a medical redshirt, but Polk never filed the paperwork and his eligibility ran out after the 2011 season.
Either way, he was in the second-day mix following a strong season (1,488 yards, 12 TDs). Polk didn't do much to stand out, though, showing a concerning lack of burst and top-end speed. He caught the ball well, but showed little in the way of creating yards on his own. Polk simply wasn't as quick or fast as expected based on his film, and the NFL combine and pro day workouts now become even more important if he hopes to become a Day 2 pick.
Hypothetically if he still has the same kind of vibe on draft day and slides to day 3 should we take a flier on him in round 4?
for example we re-sign Alex, Rogers, Goldson and Brooks would he be worth a pick at that point?
I hope we trade up to pick him in the 4th round if he makes it. He can run between tackles, run outside, catch, block, and sell the PA. I'd LOVE it if we picked him up in the 4th or later, but wouldn't take him Day 2 b/c of his injury concerns.
