Power Backs!!!




Ok, so let me start by saying three things:

1) Best can carry the ball 20+ times a game and be effective.

2) I still like Felton

3) I am not ready to give up on K-Smooth...

 

With that being said... I think the FO has given up on Smith, Dones't want to give the ball to Felton reguarly, nor give Best over 20 carries a game... (Touches yes... straight carries, no)

So, here are the possible power backs that Detroit may target... I am listing ones that I think there is no way in hell we get too... just for arguments sake:

In my opinion, the talent (not likelihood of getting) order goes as such:

 

Free Agents:

1) Le’Ron McClain -  This dude could be a lot like Hillis given the carries... but Baltimore won't let him go.... Book it, he's not availible.

2) Pierre Thomas - I tend to think he could be available, especially with a poor showing in the playoffs and if Ivory continues to ball.

3) Michael Bush -  IMO, not a starter, but a banger never the less, and would be a nice addition to the rotation.  Depends on who replaces Cable in OAK, whether or not they retain Bush.

4) John Kuhn - Love this dude, but so does GB.

5) Cedric Benson:  Old and unproven.  I don't by the fluky season last year.  I don't want him at all.

6) Brian Leonard - Could easily be had... but hes an injury concern

7) Patrick Cobb-  Depends on the Brown/Williams situation.. if they both stay, Cobb (or Lex Hillard)  could be available.

 There are others, Tim Hightower (Fumble Machine) and Vonte Leach (More of a FB) to name a few....

 

Rookies.... Anyone likley to be gone before the 4th round I am not listing, as I hope we don't draft one before then HAHA!

1) Roy Helu - RB Nebraska

2) De'Rell Scott - RB Maryland

3) Anthony Allen - RB Georgia Tech

4) Allen Bradford - RB USC

5) Vai Tua - RB Nevada

6) Kieth Payne - RB Virginia

7) Matt Asiata - RB Utah

8) Brandon Thermilus - RB Buffalo

9) Issac Odim - RB Minnesota- Duluth
