Default Miles Sanders..

Maybe they got something with this kid. I know it's early, and you don't want to get too wrapped up in the hype, but when you read something like this, it's pretty encouraging..

I'm very excited about him EB! I'm not a believer of "you can get a good running back later in the draft". Sure you can, but that's true for every other position too. You just have to get lucky. Running backs are the guys who put the points on the board for you!

I told you 60, I liked him when Barkley was still at PS, he's willing to block , catch or run. He has a little Barkley in his game. After seeing his one full season, I'm confident he can be an every down back. Maybe not right away, but soon. He's gonna run some of those RPO's for some big gains

I loved the pick when we made it. He was a really good back at Penn State. The problem was he followed Barkley so he was not looked at in that type of a light. He can do it all. I know some are ripping on his pass catching, I honestly thought the times they did throw passes to him last year he looked comfortable.

The key will be if he can pick up a blitz. If so - he's going to contribute right away. We drafted Sanders #53 overall, same spot as Shady. Let's hope we catch lightning twice.
