would u take Clarret

he's in the draft 2 years out of football. would u take him as a portis backup

If he falls that late, we'd be stupid not to take him, in my opinion. The kid is a player and was ready for the NFL 2 years ago, just like Mike Williams was this year. I doubt he falls to the 6th or 7th round, but I think he's certainly worth it!

He made a mistake trying to cover Ohio State and their Boosters ass's and took the heat, he's not that bad of a guy. At least he wants to play football.

not a chance in hell. Getting a running back is a horrible idea. We spent all this money on portis, he cnat kepe thinking someone is breathing down his neck. betts is a great backup, getting more hbs would only mess up chemistry

I dissagree i think its more of an investment in portis because at his postion he has more of a possibility to get hurt and he'll excel with a good change of pace back. Similar to TJ Ducket and warrick dunn. Dunn speeds past them, while ducket beats them down the middle. and they both last longer.

I have a feeling he would go earlier in the draft than people would expect.

Not only that, I think that Betts is a solid backup and Portis is really young himself.

Betts is solid, but injury prone. I feel our best chance to make sure Portis stays motivated is light a fire under his ass. We're only one play away from not having him, so a backup plan isn't bad. I think Clarett could be VERY valuable to this team.

Am I saying he should dethrone Portis? No. Should he get some playing time? Most definitely. How would you like to let Portis rest for a drive or two in the end of the 3rd quarter, then get him back out there with some fresh legs in the 4th. A backup breathing down his throats means he needs to perform or he's in trouble, that drives many players to their best (See Drew Brees)

I don't remember Clarret that well... is he more of a beast than Portis or is he the same type of slashing runner?

He's pretty balanced in my opinion. He can go through the tackles, and take it to the house. I'm interested to see his combine numbers. Make sure he's stayed in shape.

Yeah definitely, might be an interesting option.

HEY, I've got an idea! Whoever drafts him, we'll give them Gardener!

I'm a genius! LOL

he'll be gone by the third round, this is a very deep draft at running back though so you never know. Clarret has baggage to go with him though, somethign else we dotn need. betts and portis is a fine duo, thats all we need. We have bigger issues that we could fill with our third round pick

Exactly - hense I said if he's there at pick #6 o #7 we'd be stupid to pass him up. I don't think we should use our 3rd on em.
