Either of these three and I'm happy Martin, Ball, Turbin
I just watched this video of Turbin. This dude looks awesome. He looks like what we thought we were getting in Dixon. He remindes me of a poor mans Steven Jackson. I am completely on board the Turbin bandwaggon. Turbin in round 3 please.
I was just looking at his profile on ESPN, and the guy is from Fremont, so he is a local guy. I bet he shows up for the local pro day in a few weeks. The profile lists him at 5-10 216 which is surprising; after watching the video I thought he was 6-3 230 lol. The guy plays big.

Not that he's really setting the league on fire, but the year they drafted Coffee, the Jets traded up to grab Sean Green right ahead of us. Green would have been a perfect fit for us. To hate on Glen Coffee even more, remember we had LeGarrett Blount initially. I think he saw our roster with Gore, Coffee and recently drafted Dixon, and went to TB for a better shot at starting. I think if Coffee "retired" before the draft instead of after, we would have had Blount backing up Gore.
I'm really not sure that the roster was the reason Blount didn't sign with us. He went to the Titans instead, who were just as stocked (probably more so) with Chris Johnson, Javon Ringer, and somebody else who was looking great in pre-season. The Titans released Blount, and then he went to the Bucs.
