    Coming from a pro-scout:
    No one expects him to go out there and run a 4.40 but he can hold his own for being a big boy.

    Consider what Blount has done for the Patriots on more than one occasion throughout the past 3 seasons. That would be Foreman's bench mark, anything above that is just icing.... that he'd probably eat too.

    In his dreams Foreman could not be Blount. Although Foreman dream about blunt every night. Anyway, we will see him against NFL speed. It will be the most interesting thing to me. BOB wants backs who can hit the hole and Lamar Miller hits the hole like a wet napkin.

    Same could have been said about Blount when he went undrafted and no one wanted him after he punched that Boise St. dude in the face. That dude has come a looooooong way and guys like him prove that speed isn't everything.

    But to each his own... I'm pretty sure a lot of the issues with Miller "hitting the hole like a wet napkin" arose from having a subpar O-line plus he was often going against stacked boxes since Brocky top couldn't throw down the field to save his life.

    Pretty blantant and unwarranted hate for Foreman with basically zero basis to back it up. It's not like anyone else in the Big 12 ran for 2000 yards against those defenses....

    I expect him to look pretty good out there. I guess we shall see.

    Im so excite.

    Should @Castor27 create a game thread for an offseason game? We could use this thread as the de facto but it would be good to see progress in players or at least our "analysis" of it from week to week.

    John Harris will be gushing over every scrub. Jacking off Rick Smith when he interviews him.

    For the Rooks, I'm all in on viewing Cunningham over anyone else. In college, he had blistering speed and cover skills, if we develop his tackling, he's going to be a stud. Foreman is deep on the depth chart, so I wanna see how he handles that. Even though i think he's just a short yardage back in the NFL, if he cannot overtake Alfred Blue, i'm not going to be very happy, as running backs usually work best when they are rookies and sophomores, and Blue has been pretty garbage his career.

    Aside from those guys as rookies, I am most interested in David Quessenberry. I was high on him when we drafted him, even more higher on him since his battle. I would like to see him as a tackle, as that is where he was when we drafted him, but i can understand why he is a guard now.
