I agree, you stole the words right out of my mouth. I was hoping to see an every down back with good hands...Turbin. I though Turbin would be there in the 3rd, and here we could have gone best available, or D-line for depth. I do like the idea of James as a slot receiver/3rd down back/punt returner, but is seems kinda high spot to pick the guy. I live in Oregon, and was stoked to see JH run the "fly sweep" a play every Oregon high school runs, Ginn ran it pretty well. JH saw this play run at him over and over by Oregen, and it was sally James how ran it...I got a feeling we are going to see more fly sweep this season!
I just have to keep reminding myself we don't suck anymore, and we don't pick low in the draft, and we don't have many needs, we really are good enough that we are drafting back-ups not starters!
Just remember, if this is Gore's swansong year, next year is packed with high level RB's that can be every down backs. LaMichael is more of super versatile guy, who they will try to teach how to return kicks and punts a bit better and then move him all over the place to try to get him into space. They will see how good his hands are and how good his route running can be and they will probably move him around packages and even split him out with guys like Gore and Hunter still on the field.
