    Honestly, if he’s there in the 2nd and the Patriots draft him, I’m not throwing something at my TV as long as I like where they went with their 1st. Akers, Taylor, Etienne, and Swift would be my top RBs in this one. Akers is being very underrated. My wife is an FSU alum (unfortunately) so I watch almost all of their games and my team has to play him once a year. He’s a pain in the balls to deal with.

    the other thing to take into account with FSU they haven’t had the best line in recent years which make him an even better prospect. Can’t see us taking a RB unless BB trades someone away or something strange happens

    the single biggest flaw I see with Dillion is he sucks at pass protection.

    Harris could not hardly sniff the field with us this past year because he sucks at pass protection, Dillion is even worse.

    a replacement for burkhead? Burkhead plays a lot of special teams. Whoever replaces him had better be a special teams demon!

    Not got a clue if I’m honest! Just never know what BB thinks!

    No. But you have to understand what you're looking at.

    It's amazing how you claim that Harris' pass protection abilities (or lack there of) is what kept him off the field, yet it was easily the DEPTH the Pats had at RB that kept him off the field with Michel, Burkhead, White, and Bolden ahead of him. With Burkhead and Bolden being HUGE special teams contributors.

    I side with the 'AJ Dillon is mediocre' crowd.

    Jonathan Taylor will be good if he plays in a zone scheme, but he's nothing special in my opinion. Just not a special amount of elusiveness or power.

    Darrynton Evans has nice outside zone, big play potential. Could see him on a team like the Niners.

    JaMychal Hasty looks like a nice scatback, in the mold of Jerrick McKinnon.

    Anthony McFarland could sneakily be the best back in the class. Shades of Kareem Hunt.

    Antonio Gibson could be a stud too. He has everything: speed, power, receiving. He's a little tight in the hips, but his elusiveness is good enough. I think you play him at RB and use him at WR occasionally rather than the reverse.

    Deandre Swift has elusiveness but not the athleticism to outmatch anyone. He tops out as mediocre.

    Joshua Kelley has nice receiving skills. He makes a good utility back to have on the roster.

    My favs are McFarland, Gibson, Evans, and Hasty in that order.

    Clearly not what I said. If anything, I said the exact opposite of that. But what I said doesn't imply that Harris sucked at anything in particular. Just that the depth ahead of him was better.

    You made an unfounded statement with ZERO to back it up. You completely ignored the veteran depth that the Patriots have.

    And let me add something that you also have ignored. The fact that WHITE basically sat out his rookie year in a similar situation and that White didn't see a lot of time despite the injury issues the Pats had ahead of him.

    Watched many BC games the past 2 years and this 245 lb RB has issues.
    Given his size, you’d think he’d be an effective battering ram but the his guy shies away from contact. In 2018 he would turn his body sideways just before taking a hit.
    Also seemed very slow to hit the hole.
    When he did get up to speed, his athleticism shined.
    Maybe a better system/better coaching is what this RB needs. Watching a BC offense is like traveling back in time to the 1950’s.
