    I really like Leshoure. He's an option for me in the late part of the first round. He's a good runner and also has good hands.

    The Dolphins really like Bilal Powell who's having a 2nd meeting with them.

    Ok boomer i'll look it up tonight.

    Thanks Conufucus nice clip. Seems to have good speed if he gets threw. Wasn't impressed with any ability to break a tackle in this clip though.

    They'll draft a bunch of RBs past the third round, maybe even three of them and see who sticks. No reason to worry about the position more than that. Hopefully they sign a guard in free agency and a TE and they'll be ready to go.

    I've not seen Bilal Powell at all. Would it be safe assuming, just hypothetically of course, that Leshoure and Powell would complement each other, or is that not the case?

    Not a very patient runner is he?

    He's solid. He just needs some room to work with when finding lanes IMO. If someone took Daniel Thomas over him, I wouldn't complain but I like both.

    Don't see us drafting 3 running backs

    I certainly see some good things on the film. I love his pass pro. He looks aggressive and meets guys head on. He also seems adept at finding the blitzer. Based on the tape, my main concern is, as you say, him finding the lanes. The Offensive line in the video seems to be subpar, but he still seems too eager sometimes. I agree where it states that he looks for the big run too often. He does seem to be a good runner though. I'd just like to see how he works with more space.

    Very impatient. Can't set up blocks. Can't break tackles. Has good lean to finish a run and pick up short yardage - but we already have the best in the business at that -POLITE. Overall, very underwhelmed by this guy. Not impressed at all really.

    we would go from the most patient runner ever to the most impatient runner ever.

    Swell.

    I think if we trade back this is the guy we want to draft.

    vision for the future man, vision for the future. lol. He's only 20 years old; give him time to develop. Heck, he had about 900 yards in his last 5 games alone. He's impatient b/c he's young, knows he has big play capability, and was too often looking to break one off.
    This kid is nothing like Polite. He has playmaking feature back potential.
