    Re: Pros like Maroney's potential

    I was originally thinking he might be a bust, but sounds like i may have been wrong. The good thing is I'm about 95% sure either Lendale, DeAngelo Williams, or Maroney will be there for us. But if not, is there any other RB's worthy of a 17th pick?

    Re: Pros like Maroney's potential

    Let's us pick an O-lineman or LB wit' our foist pick, an' get dis mug in da second round:
    =================================================
    Joseph Addai
    RB | (5'11", 210, 4.41) | LSU

    Scouts Grade: 87

    Strengths: Is a versatile, underrated prospect. Has decent size but is powerful for a smaller back. Has the frame to get bigger. Possesses excellent speed. Shows great initial burst and runs with power. Shows good pad-level and will deliver the blow on a consistent basis. Hits the hole hard and is decisive. He shifts gears and shows an explosive second gear when he hits daylight. Has good COD skills. Shows vision in the open field and will make intelligent cuts back against the grain. He is outstanding in the passing game. Shows excellent awareness and feet in pass pro. Will find the blitzing linebacker, get in position and show great leverage at the POA. He is a scrappy blocker who will cut block when he is overmatched. He works hard to sustain and shows great toughness as a blocker. He is one of the most fluid and reliable receivers out of the backfield in this year's RB class. Has smooth hands; will pluck on the run and can catch over his head. He adjusts to the poorly thrown ball. Is a savvy route runner with a great feel for reading coverages and getting open. Also has experience split out and in the slot. Is a potential mismatch vs. LB's in the passing game at the next level. Has limited experience as a KOR specialist but shows some upside.

    Weaknesses: Lacks ideal bulk and needs to continue to fill out his frame. Had some durability issues in 2003. Lacks the bulk and overall size right now to push the pile as a short-yardage runner in the NFL. Isn't overly elusive in the open field. Is extremely sound and aware as a blocker but occasionally will be overmatched at the POA by bigger blitzing linebackers.

    Overall: Addai is an all-purpose back who finished second on the team in rushing and third on the team in receiving in 2004. He played in all 12 games as a junior and finished with 680 yards and three TDs on 101 carries, while also chipping in with 294 yards and four TDs on 26 receptions. Addai has taken over as the primary ball carrier for LSU as a senior in 2005 and his production has been outstanding. Addai was listed as the backup to Alley Broussard heading into the season but took over as the primary ball-carrier when Broussard was lost to injury for the season. Addai has capitalized on the opportunity and has significantly improved his draft stock as one of the most productive runners in the nation in 2005. Addai is a decisive, slippery runner with excellent timed speed. He lacks ideal bulk and he does not show great elusiveness to make many defenders miss in space. However, Addai is powerful for his size, he has the frame to fill out, and he's a home-run threat in the open field because of his explosive second-gear. He also is an outstanding blocker and reliable receiver in the passing game. He will wow NFL personnel officials with his post-season individual workouts and, as a result, his stock should peak at the right time. In our opinion, Addai has proven he has starter's potential in the NFL and he will be worth a second-round pick to a team in need of a versatile home-run threat at the RB position in the 2006 draft.
    ===============================================
    He sounds like a West Coast Offense kinda back to me. What do youse mugs tink?

    The NEXT Domanick Davis! Looks good in Purple and Gold! Looks like he has all the tools! I wonder if he will slip into the second round...because if he does, we gotta take him! Especially if we don't sign someone like Edge in FA.

    Addai looks like he would be great in the WCO. He is speedy, can catch out of the backfield, Good blocker... If he drops in the 2nd then I defenitely want him.
