    Ben Tate, RB Auburn.
    5-11 218
    Senior Stats:
    1362 yards, 5.2 average, 10 tds
    105 rec yards, 20 rec


    Ben Tate excelled in every aspect of the combine. He is a downhill runner who still has great speed (ran a 4.43 at the combine, third best).

    If someone higher up than Ryan Mathews on our draft board so happens to still be there at 28, such as Dan Williams or Kyle Wilson or Brian Price, we should take them and take Tate in round 2. He impressed me at the combine a lot and he is similar to Cedric Benson IMO.



    What are your thoughts?

    I maintain he's a third rounder still even with that great performance at the combine and I do like him and think he'd be a good fit then.

    Address the lines in the first two rounds and grab Tate in the third, hit your three big needs in the first two days
