Now Pead is a guy that I have seen a lot of. Comparing him to Shady McCoy is a colossal stretch. Shady is capable of carrying the load for a team, Pead is a good change of pace runner/3rd down back. He's got solid speed but isn't quite the home-run threat Shady is.

If I had to compare Pead to someone currently in the NFL I would say he is a poor man's Felix Jones.

mccoy was hardly looked at as a carry the load type back...a far cry from that actually imo. im not saying pead is 2011 world beating lesean mccoy, but his instinctive running reminds me of the prospect mccoy

I'd like to find out who said this so I can not pay attention to anything they say in the future.

Jamaal Charles ran for over 1600 yards in the big 12 his JR season in college and played in a much better conference. Its not all about stats but I think people are overrating Pead in a RB class where there's just not a ton of speed. I would much rather have Lamar Miller in the second round or David Wilson in the first if we're going to take a RB in the first 3 rounds.

IDK about that, right off the bat as a true freshman he carried the load, and then again the next year.

Pead only did it once.

He can play three of the 5 OL positions and is pretty nasty. I'll say he goes on the third day, but wouldn't surprise me if he ends up in the second day.

I forget where I saw it at, but I'm pretty sure I've seen it. I think he was talking about their skillset. I do agree, Charles is sooooooooooooo much better than Pead.

Would he be suitable for the LG spot? Can he pull/trap etc?

Interesting w/ Massie. I remember when he was supposed to step in immediately for Andre Smith at Bama and then he threw a curveball and chose to play for Ole Miss. He is a mauler and seems to have kept his weight issues in check through college.

I prefer Kelechi Osemele in the second round, the man is an absolute monster and potential Ngata-neutralizer, but if we could go Massie 2nd and get Brandon Washington in the third I would be VERY thrilled (assuming we already got some D help in rd 1).

Here's NFL.com's evaluation:


STRENGTHS Nix is fast off the snap to get into a defensive tackle's face, and he displays the same speed when pulling around to get to linebackers. He keeps his feet moving when he engages and can drive defenders backwards. Nix is able to keep a steady balance and sustain on his blocks despite the wide base he falls back into when contact is initiated. He can handle strong defenders and is one of the strong anchor-type guards who can sit back and absorb a heavy rush without getting blown back. Nix has been a consistent and durable player inside for Pitt.

WEAKNESSES While he does possess good footwork, Nix has a tough time breaking down in space to fit on athletic linebackers once he reaches the second level. He has decent hands when working blocks, but stronger players can beat him. Nix relies on a sturdy base with much of his blocking and that could get him in trouble against more powerful players at the next level.

i did not even realize how the backlash would be trying to compare anyone to a precious pitt player to pitt fans lol

again, running style and ability....dont get too offended by the comparison i know mccoy played a lot more at Pitt right off the bat, i know hes a top 5 ish RB in the league now....im not saying pead is that im saying pead runs a lot like him and has similar instincts. They are similar players even if the great lesean mccoy went to pitt lol

Mychal Kendricks is visiting today. Short, but very athletic and productive. Not sure he fits in a 34, though.

God I loved Spoon. I'm starting to think we will go OL first round. Massie(don't think he's worth it, but could rise), Martin, Reiff(rumors that he's falling), or Amini Silatolu.

I'd personally grab the tackle and kill two birds with one stone by moving Colon to guard.

I would love Martin but i do not think he will be there. Massie does seem like a bit of a reach at this point, but he probably is not going to fall to our second rounder...maybe we can trade down 8-10 spots and pick up another 3rd?

If we picked up Massie in the first (trade down) and Ta'Amu in the second (trade up) I would be pretty happy though.
