Travis Homer or Miles Sanders

Again, Falcon scouting, never looking for the next Alvin Kamara, but looking for the next mid level RB.   There is one RB in this class that the Falcons need to get.  Go find him yourself.  I will reveal a day before draft

I'd be ok with any of the following backs take in the 4th or later (ideally the later the better):

Ryquell Armstead (Temple)
Justice Hill (Oklahoma St)
Bryce Love (Stanford)
Tony Pollard (Memphis)
Miles Sanders (Penn St)
Devine Ozigbo (Nebraska)

Also curious to see how Ty Johnson (Maryland) looks at his upcoming pro day.

Homer plays big.  But Sanders can push his guard into the DT for 6 on goal to go situations

Miles Sanders is going to be very good. I am a psu guy, so I am a fan obviously, but I have seen him play extensively. He was a top recruit in the nation, and unfortunately for him Barkley exploded on the scene. Sanders was actually a higher recruit though. He isn’t the athlete Barkley is but his game is complete like SB. He has limited miles on him as well, only getting to carry the load one season. He didn’t run away from guys like SB, but he was able to go long distance and not get run down by DBs with ease.

i wouldn’t be surprised to see him go in round two, but 3-4 is the range most say.

No more small backs. We have two

I need a definition of small back. 

OJ was 210 lbs but 6’2

Thurman Thomas was 200 lbs

Dorsett was 195 lbs

 

At 5’9 and 202 lbs, Homer isn’t small

Small like Barry Sanders , MJD or Ray Rice? Difference between small and short.

i am guessing people want that 220lb RB, but if you have a great line, those shorter backs cause defenses fits when they disappear in the piles.

This is 2018. Those were the 1900s. It wasn’t uncommon back then to find a 260lb DT. Again I say...no more small backs.

No more small backs. Period. I don’t care how you try to season that tuna, it still stinks.

You don’t think OJ or Thurman or Walter could play today?
