Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Sellers is undoubtably the man for now, but I expect the team will be looking for depth at the position in the upcoming draft.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Mack Strong was also a bigger threat catching balls out of the backfield ala Weaver. Sellers can catch but he can not take a flat and turn up field for a 20 yard gain. Sellers is just too slow.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

In regards to him being small I revert back to my arguement that he was not making the holes on 3rd and 1. or 4th and 1. I do believe we were one of the best on 3rd downs but I do believe there were plenty of times where holes were not made.

I didn't study the game films so maybe someone else broke down on those plays but I simply meant was maybe some one with a little more weight should be in the JUMBO package.

I will say this is just wrong here. Sellers had a few good games where he turned it up field. No he is not Moss or Portis and will out run everyone but Where he lacks speed he makes up for by physically over running the DB like a truck. My complaint is mostly in the JUMBO packages making the hole for Portis or Betts.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Sellers is the man. He is extremely athletic for his size, and I dont see us looking to replace him. If anything we could look for some depth at the FB position. Nevertheless, Sellers is our guy.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

I love Sellers. He's a play maker, but I wouldn't mind drafting a guy like Owen Schmitt from West Virginia to help with some of the blocking duties. I'd say Sellers is above average in that department, but I feel Schmitt could be a stud.

I'm still not understanding you. What do you want in the backfield, a 300 pounder?

I say we go after Grady Jackson to run the FB position ... I know he's a little on the small side, but I still think that guy could open some holes ...

He's already been identified by Cerrato as a potential target. It all depends on how the draft unfolds.

Still too small... what else you got?

Yeah I think we are gonna have to spend our 3rd rounder on Schmitt if we want him. I have heard talk about him going as early as the second lately, but i still think he'll be a late 3rd (where we are) or a early 4th.

Dallas fans have mentioned him a lot too, which makes me want him more, plus he's a home town kid so it just seems wrong for him to go to Dallas.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

I've watched a lot of film on both. Hillis is just as good of a blocker if not better... and a way better receiver. Don't think we want to draft a FB that high but you never know
