Favorite RB in this year's draft for Jets

I REALLY like Eddie Lacy as a replacement (and upgrade) to Shonn Green in round #2 if he is still around.....for value in the 3rd round or later i say Stephan Taylor. Thoughts?

Lacy is too close to Greene in body type and style of runner. I'd go with a more complete back like Gio Bernard or even roll the dice on Lattimore.

Lacy is WAY better than Greene.

Theo Riddick. Can get him in the 5th or 6th. No need to draft a RB before then. Guy was a WR so you know he can catch.

His upside is non existent. He does nothing exceptionally well. He's basically Bilal Powell. The other guys we're talking about like Bernard, Lacy and Lattimore could be good starters.

I like Joseph Randle - can pass protect, catch, and is explosive. I don't think they'll be looking for a back like Lacy with the scheme change. Bernard I could see.

We have bigger positions of need than RB and need to address them earlier in the draft. Those guys will be gone by the time the Jets should consider taking a another RB. I'd prefer they just sign Justin Forsett and not draft any RBs.

What bigger needs do the Jets have than RB? They don't have a starting caliber RB on their roster. It would be perfectly reasonable to grab a RB in rounds 2 or 3. Forcett isn't a starter either. Edited by unbanmadmike1

Bernard, Lacy, Taylor, Bell, Ball are probably my favorites.

Currently? QB, TE, S, OG, OLB. I'd even argue our WRs are a concern too. These may change but that's right now and a start and we need multiple players at some of those positions. Unless you're getting a game changer like Rice or Peterson, no need to draft one super high. Dime a dozen.

Bilal Powell and Forsett would be fine behind a decent line. No one said Forsett was going to be a starter.

They aren't a dime a dozen when your starter is a JAG like Bilal Powell. The jets just hired a guy to run a WCO and they have no RB to make plays out of the backfield. Thats a big big problem.

You have no idea what offense they will implement. They have no QB or WRs for the WCO either. So maybe they won't run that system. If you sign Forsett or draft Riddick you have guys who can make plays catching the ball out of the backfield.

Those guys suck. They are 3 touch a game players on a decent team with a RB who can actually make plays. Any combo of those guys would be the worst backfield in the NFL. Edited by unbanmadmike1

I like Bernard's excelleration but dont see him as powerful enough to carry the load as a starter. Lacy certainly is....Bell might be a sneaky mid round pick too....he could be a good power back compliment to Powell. What about Jamison kid out of Rutgers? He might end up being the best back in this draft, Ray Rice type back.

Lattimore is a risky pick with a big potential upside

Who can't play in a WCO based offense here?

Also those RBs suck. I would try to sign Felix Jones.

Ray Rice is a prettty high comparison true....I told all my friends Doug Martin was the next Ray Rice and they all made fun of me and said Boise plays weak competition and i was wrong...well I wasnt but this year I dont see any backs like that aside from Lacy (who I think is a ****ing BEAST!!) but Jamison could surprise....I agree however, Rice is better than Jamison. What about Stephan Taylor? Reports from Senior Bowl is that he is clearly the best RB there...seems like a complete back who can do it all. Fairly sturdy too at 5'9" 215

Also worth mentioning and without a doubt seems a bit disrespected is Montee Ball....that guy got a nose for the endzone

I will be piss if we picked a RB in the second and pass up on Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame or Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford. Therefore I would look in the 3rd round after a guy like Mike Gillislee who's the only top back who projects to have legit sub 4.4 speed. He's a guy that did a good job running between the tackles. Along with him Monte Ball.

Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida

Height: 5-11. Weight: 209.

Projected 40 Time: 4.42.

Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

Gillislee had a superb senior season for the Gators. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry while amassing 1,1152 yards and 10 touchdowns. Gillislee played hurt, yet helped push Florida to a tough road win against Teas A&M. He had impressive games against Tennessee, Bowling Green and LSU, too. He closed out the regular season by destroying Florida State to the tune of 140 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.

The senior has speed and deceptive power. Gillislee is very impressive as a blocker in blitz protection. He has really helped his draft stock this year.

Any of the QBs and Stephen Hill.

Felix Jones is healthy never and is a plodder.
