Let's get this Running Back....

Postby tribeofjudah » Tue Mar 09, 2010 9:33 pm

Ryan Mathews, Fresno State - Scouting Report
Height: 6-0. Weight: 218.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Combine 40 Time: 4.41.
Benchx225: 19. Vertical: 36. Broad: 10-1.
Projected Round (2010): Top 30 Pick.
3/1/10: The most impressive running back at the Combine, Ryan Mathews ran a 4.41 and notched a 10-1 broad jump. He also looked great catching the ball in the drills. It'll be a mild upset if he falls out of the first round.

1/3/10: Ryan Mathews has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Mathews' stock will never be higher than it is now, so he made the right decision.

11/7/09: Ryan Mathews is having an incredible year at Fresno State (1,316 yards, 7.4 YPC, 11 TDs in eight games). You may shrug off the fact that he plays in the WAC, but in three games against Wisconsin, Cincinnati and Boise State, Mathews has rushed for 486 yards and four touchdowns on 76 carries.

so one person sharpens another.

I have no problem with Mathews, actually I really like him - but just where do we manage to get the pick from to be able to grab him while we are doing all the other things we need to do here?

Campbell looks like he's the QB - not because he's any good, he isn't, just because we're rebuilding and replacing

Portis looks like he's the RB - not because he's going to be a great RB again, just because we're rebuilding and replacing

just where do we get the pick that allows us to grab this guy?
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

When we get to the top of the second round, the best players will be Rb's. Wouldn't surprise me whatsoever if they took one.

especially if we pick an extra 2nd round pick by trading down with Buffalo.

I don't want them too, but I think they will, which probably means we'll be seeing a lot of Heyer this year.

patience guys - Allen and Shanahan have a plan - let's face it, they already look like they know what they're doing and we haven't even done much :D

Heyer may be the worst tackle in the NFL
Mike/Bruce - If your going to spring big this year in Free Agency, please spring big on offensive lineman! I cant watch Rabach anymore!

Hopefully that wouldn't be the case. Maybe Mike Gandy can play RT? He's pretty big. Anything is better than Heyer. I'm not sure any of the second round options would be great RT's anyway.

If we don't go OT, QB or QB, OT, or OT, OT with our first two picks, I will go crazy.

I have never understood why ANYONE thinks a RB can produce without a good OL. RBs need their OL WAY WAY more than even the QB position. Why would we pickup a RB at 4 or 36 when we have CP and potentially Johnson. That would be a horrible idea. In my opinion, the RB position is not a position to draft in the first 2 rounds. They have a short shelf-life and they need a good OL and QB to produce even when they are good.

Fix the line, get a QB, and then we will understand our RB needs and the position will fall into place.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Let me add my My 2 cents

this is now more of a pass oriented league and while a good running game is helpful it is only a part of the offense - we can get a decent RB fairly quickly but it is going to take a while to get a good offensive line and a QB to be the offensive leader

The O line is the most important factor here right now and we'll need to be getting a QB ready to play behind it at the same time - the RB can be added fairly quickly, later
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming
