A back will likely be drafted, but I'm still holding out hope we can add someone with some speed.
Speed like LMJ? Or speed with the power to actually break tackle? Because Gurleys pretty fast see his Clemson KO return. Gurleys a playmaker that would make defenses look silly running behind this Oline.
Anyways he won't make it to us.
As much as I advocated for LaMichael James to get more opportunities here, I wouldn't exactly say speed like LaMichael James lol. More like Chris Johnson type speed, De'Anthony Thomas (more realistic because I doubt we spend that high of a pick on a speed back), or Dri Archer. I could be trying to fit a square peg into a round hole with that kind of back, but if that type of player can run decisively and is used on well designed plays they could make a lot out of what is sure to be limited opportunities.
Gurley on the hand looks like a number one back, 1st round pick type of guy. He isn't lasting until where we draft as you pointed out and I doubt we draft him unless the staff isn't confident about Marcus Lattimore giving us any kind of production.
