    Is there any chance 1 of these guys slips to the second round? Adrian Peterson should be first then Marshawn Lynch. I was wonder if one of these guys could fall into the second round because then could we draft like Leon Hall CB out of Michigan, or someone else in the first and get Bush or Irons in the second

    I don't think either or slips. Possibly one could pending other teams needs. I see Bush as a top 25 pick and Irons going late 1st. A lot can still happen though. Look it LenDale White this year. Though neither Bush or Irons has a rep of being lazy.

    I don;t like Bush as a pro, but I love Irons as a pro. If the Packers can get Irons, that would be great. He has great speed, blitz pick-up and decent hands. Plus playing at Auburn, he has played and will continue playing in high pressure games.

    What don't you like about Bush as a pro?

    He's the biggest, fastest, smartest, and meanest RB ever to come out, he's a perennial all pro. Wait and see. He can catch, he runs over his guy because he has the size to do it, he can run around the corner because he has the speed to outrun defenders, he has great vision and excellent hands. He's a nobrainer and will at least be a solid RB in the pros.

    I wouldn't go as far to call him the biggest, fastest, smartest and meanest RB EVER to come out. That pretty much means he's the best RB prospect ever. That he is not.

    With that said he's certainly a great prospect and certainly worthy of a top 20 pick especially if that leg heals. It's going to come down to two things. Does he take the medical redshirt and return to Lousiville or Does he go pro and how healthy does he look come workouts? Personally before he got hurt Bush was the guy I wanted GB to Draft.

    Bush is like N. Davenport. Big, physical, but not fast enough. We need a home run hitter, and Kenny Irons is that guy. He is fast, can block, can catch, and has great breakaway speed.

    Bush has ran a sub 4.5. Davenport was drafted as a FB because he wasn't agile and wasn't that fast. Bush on the other hand is a RB who is big and fast at the same time. Saying he's slow like Najeh Davenport is an inaccurate scouting report. If anything people will question his durability now.

    They both are late first round or could slip to early second round picks. They will be gone by pick 48.

    I think theses players should be considered as who Thompson may get if he trades down in the fisrt round. He may be inclined to do so knowing that if one is selected he can draft the other.

    He would likely get a 3rd round pick for trading down.

    Keep these players in mind as we know how Ted Thompson approaches the draft.

    If everything goes according to plan, we will be drafting Lynch from California, which will make either Irons or Bush useless to use in the second round.

    i have an ever so sneaky feeling the Texans might take Lynch ahead of us or someone like the Giants or Jets might trade up and take him under our noses. Would taking Bush or Irons at 16 be considered a reach? I'd like to know what u guys think cos if it happens i think we should address WR in the first round.
