    I disagree. There might be a lot of good backs this year, but Forte is the only one who is a big back that will likely be there in round three. Most of them are on the small side. Turner, I think, compares well to Jonathan Stewart. And Stewart is a top-twenty talent in this draft.

      Turner's a talent, no doubt. But I just don't like to spend big money on running backs. If we can get him for a deal around $3-4 mill per year, that'd be palatable. But any more than that and I'd be slightly miffed.

          That's what Ward and Toonster do for you. Two positive reps and I went up like 7 bars (2 to 9).

            Must have been a pretty amazing post to get rep from Ward and Toonster. Nice.

              Lol, not really. Ward was from defending Roddy White and Toonster was for defending Sedrick Ellis and saying what it takes to be a nose tackle.

                Even Rotoworld is predicting Michael Turner to the Falcons. I suspect Turner, and at least one O-Lineman and one DT will be signed. My bets:

                Max Starks
                Corey Williams
                Michael Turner

                  That would make me happy as a lark Shiv.

                    I'd be happy with that. Even though I still really like McFadden, Turner just makes sense on so many levels.

                      I like McFadden too...but if we could be open for Ellis, or Dorsey, or Long I'd be stoked.

                        Michael Turner running on the left with Jake Long and Justin Blaylock blocking for him.

                            Corey Williams and Michael Turner? I doubt it. Those are both the top players at their positions.

                              We're prepared to spend money...we have to fix something in FA, cause even with 9 picks we don't have enough to fill our problems without a strong showing in FA.

                                We're not winning this year anyways. Trying to get it all done in one year, also known as rushing, is probably the worst thing we could do. Take our time and be smart.
