    So I am just speculating we are still in good shape with Sanders. If we get him and no other RB we should be ok for next season with Jacobs. N. Harris and Robinson returning.

    I would not count on JJ coming back. I can not point to a RB who would be taken ahead of him this year.
    We have Jerome Ford from last cycle as well

    Yes, and because of injuries, we didn't get nearly as much out of him as he could/would have given...

    Similar to Kenyan Drake. Injuries plagued the contributions he could have made overall as well.

    It's hard to believe he would get a high draft grade at this point. Does he just want to get away?

    I have no first hand knowledge. The story posted a couple of weeks ago talks about childhood struggles, he has a small child,. A lot of motivation to move on.
    I am curious as to why you don't think he would get a high draft grade? Rbs are not at a premium they once were but in my eyes he fits the mold of what they lean towards, shifty, fast, can catch extremely well, punishing blocker down field, special teams ace, return man. In my eyes I don't think he lacks any skill and he seems to excel at EVERYTHING. I don't follow any team as I do ours but it would not surprise me if he is first RB taken in the draft. Late first-2nd round pick.I guess I just don't see how he could improve his stock by staying.
    Again I am not claiming to know anything beyond what I have seen this year.

    And effort in everything he does. He's a Swiss Army knife some team will get at a discount price. We are seeing the end of the running back we grew up watching.

    Very true Jacobs could leave for sure. I had forgotten about Ford.

    But I don't recall a player that contributed in so many ways. He's been a star ever since he first played.
    Wish we could field 11 of those players!

    You're spot on. There are many teams that would love to have him on their roster. IMO JJ could go as high as late 1st round, especially to a team that's already contending with a solid roster but wants to add a special player.

    I think he's gone by pick 64.

    I think he may go ahead of DH. This guy is the new type of NFL RB similar to Kamara and while RB's are not typically 1st rounders he will certainly go in the first 3 rounds. Every RB we have had other than DH and KD have gone after their junior year. His family life will also have a lot to do with it also (came for a poor family background and has a daughter).

    Is it due to Locks going to Maryland or is he being asked to look elsewhere? I loved this guys highlight video. Small but can fly.
