Whose nuts will you hop on now? Anthony Davis? Courtney Greene for a year? Kenny Britt?

well I must say Leonard's and Ray Ray's were quite comfy. I've always been a huge Foster, Greene and Girault fan myself. Now? Just listen for the name Manny Abreu. But for this year, it's Courtney Greene and Britt all the way

I was gonna say Abreu. 6'3 235 4.6 sounds pretty comfy.

Oh ****, now we have to hear about how the Giants better pick Ray Rice until the draft starts. Much like Leonard last year, ugh.

You know I love you Scottyboy, but let's not go too crazy with the Rutgers picks, lol.

Actually I would be okay with taking Rice for the Giants in the latter rounds of the draft. However, Leonard would have been a terrible pick for us in the 2nd Round as you suggested.

Mike Hart>>>>Ray Rice, if you ask me though.

Emmitt Smith?

Regardless where he gets drafted he is going to make a great pro, who cares if he is a 4.6 guy he can straight up ball. He really helped elevate the program in Rutgers, probally more so then Leonard

don't worry, I won't go crazy like i did last year. Last year RB AND FB were needs for us, Leonard made sense. Even Scott Wright liked that fit. No with BJ, bradshaw and hedgecock, we're good.

I still want Ito(makes PERFECT sense) and/or one of the RU OL graduating.(Again makes sense, we need OL depth, big time). And perhaps Foster or Girault for more depth and talent. I won't go too overboard, but Ito is my main dream for the G-Men.

And I'm ignoring the hart comment...

Courtney Greene gone too as per the Home News Tribune.

Bad decision for him, he needed another year, could've been a 1st rounder with a solid year.

that's an awful move by him. Well this safety class is as weak as the RB class is strong and deep. I wanna see a link before i think of this.

Perhaps the thought that Joe Lefeged may accidentally kill him in the same secondary scared him away.

btw, gorgeous sig

I like Ray Rice a great deal, I always enjoy watching him play. The deep speed concerns are overblown imo, the guy can play football. He can carry the football with very good vision, with toughness and durability, and he can additionally hone his skills as an all-purpose back. No character or desire concerns with him, I feel.

He's probably looking at the second round or the early/mid 3rd round, depending on how the total runningback class stacks up and which teams pull the trigger on taking a runningback. Obviously, if he can turn heads in the Combine, that can help him a good deal, but he's a very good back and hopefully he lands with a good team.

I certainly would welcome him to the Colts with open arms, although I think they might be better served building depth using a late-round pick and/or undrafted free agency.

well I'll be damned. geez, I didn't think that'd happen. I love Greene. He's one of my favorites. He's a big time sleeper, and his timed speed at the combine will hurt him, but he'll be a very good NFL player.

****.

oh well, more playing time for Joe "the killing machine" Lefeged

Lefeged is slated to fill in for Ronnie Girault.

Glen Lee will step in for Courtney, not a bad downgrade if you ask me. Glen just needs to stop going in for the kill shots so much and get a little better in coverage.

I think Lee will fit in just fine and we won't even notice Greene's absence.

i was praying for one year of Greene and Lefeged... man that would be nasty,

I like Lee, but he's not nearly as good in coverage as Greene. He and Lefeged will dish out at least one concussion a game. Each.

Britt is going to be the big prospect. This guy is all-world.

I think Young will start next year, with Mase and Brooks getting some carries. OL is a concern, we'll be young. Guessing Haslam at LT and Davis at RT.

This is the before picture. Soon after, scottyboy threw this women off of Rice, and started hugging him.

Actually, that is Scottyboy, Dirtybirds.

Or at least he wishes it was. Of course, we all know Ray Rice is dreamy, so who can blame him?

I wish i was related to Ray Rice. If I was a girl, I'd wish I was the lucky one to concieve Ray Rice. It'd be like

ZOMG! greatness was inside me and came out of my vagina

LOL. Both disturbing and perplexing.

I bet you Ray Rice didn't just 'come out' when he was being birthed, he sprinted out and stiff armed the doctor along the way.

I'm not sure that this is a great decision for him considering how deep this RB class is going to be.

well he would have been picked higher next year but he feel he is ready this year and i think so to. Ray Rice is a beast

One thing that is overlooked is that he took a lot of carries over the course of these three years. Add another year of wear and tear and all these questions about durability for the future come into play. Much like it did with Kevin Smith.

I think he wants to get into the NFL sooner rather than later to avoid that. Honestly, I think if you're a team like Houston or Denver, Rice and Hart are two guys to keep an eye out. I think they would be superb ZBS runners and could end up being a steal for teams like those.
