Sony Michel

Pete from Woodstock : 1/9/2018 6:57 am
I'm on board with this kid! 5'11" 216lbs relentless!
Michel had 14 carries for 98 yards Monday, including a long of 26 yards.

If we don't go the Barkley way, would love this guy in blue.

Been saying that since

the Oklahoma gain. He and Chubb are the real deal.
Chubb  
Pete from Woodstock : 1/9/2018 7:32 am : link
did not impress me last night. Michel was running HARD against that Alabama D.
Is Michel draft eligible? I donít know why RB Chubb gets more mention.

Yes

Michel is eligible and would look good in blue
Lots of good RBs again this year......

Thereís no need to draft Barkley #2. He does some things better then these other backs, but heís not the second coming of Walter Payton!
Georgia  
RollBlue : 1/9/2018 8:19 am : link
blew the game last night by giving him like 3 carries in the 4th quarter - not sure what they were thinking not having him on the field.

Looks like a good blocker on third down also.
From what I've seen Michel is clearly better than Chubb

Chubb is the bell cow whereas Michel is the homerun hitter. Iím a Georgia fan. While I like Chubb Iíve always preferred Michel. The question I have for Michel in the NFL is whether he can hold up is the primary back.
Chubb has a lot of wear on him  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 1/9/2018 8:54 am : link
Michel has always been the more explosive back and would love him in round 2.
Michel and Gallman  
clatterbuck : 1/9/2018 8:55 am : link
would be a good combo, with Darkwa or someone similar as a pounder.

Think of it more like Kamara and Ingram.

Michel would look good in Giants blue.
Good example of one player busting his ass  
JonC : 1/9/2018 9:18 am : link
running decisively, with authority, and explosion punishing defenders trying to bring him down ... and the other being very tentative, indecisive, and seemingly dead legged during the biggest game of his life.
I believe michel tore his ACL in HS but talent wise he is a stud  
Eric on Li : 1/9/2018 9:18 am : link
from 8th grade on he was the most hyped RB prospect since Frank Gore in south florida and that is saying something since he was only a year behind Dalvin Cook and a few behind Devonta Freeman and Duke Johnson. Definitely a lot of RB options in this draft.

Good question - there are so few true all around #1 backs now in the NFL, this is less of a concern IMO

I think back to last year's super bowl - both Atlanta and New England were utilizing multiple super athletic backs with great effect, and none of them fit the traditional work horse mold.

IMO Gallman and Darkwa are solid 2A/2B type backs, certainly can play their role, but a good OC could have a field day with Michel as a weapon

Heck this might be the year of the running back!

Whoever drafts Michel shouldn't look at him as a primary, workhorse type back - he's a guy you'll want to pair with another RB. I'd love Michel here though.

Imagine Titans let Murray walk and draft Michel. That would be a lethal combo.

It's a copycat league. Freeman/Coleman... Ingram/Kamara... Who will it be next year?

Breeze_94 : 1/9/2018 10:49 am : link
Will be this years Kamara.

Pete from Woodstock : 1/9/2018 10:59 am : link
that's a perfect assessment!
backs like this will be available in latter rounds  
mdc1 : 1/9/2018 11:06 am : link
as the NFL is a passing league now. Reason to fix oline first.
I like Sony.  
Miamijints : 1/9/2018 11:21 am : link
But Barkley is the truth.

Not really true.

Top 10 rushing teams this season:

JAX
DAL
PHI
CAR
NO
BUF
LAR
KC
NE

Dallas is the only one of those teams that missed the playoffs.

You have to run the football and stop the run. Those are still two of the most major components of succeeding in the NFL.

Missed Minnesota in the above post - they're between BUF/LAR @ 7. Another playoff team.

Guys like Michel,  
bw in dc : 1/9/2018 11:58 am : link
and his type of quality is in most drafts, is why you donít waste the #2 pick on Barkley....
Iím impressed  
Paul326 : 1/9/2018 12:43 pm : link
He played with a huge chip on his shoulder. That wasnít some patsy team he tore up. Itís a head scratcher as to why they stopped going to him.
I know everyone likes to compare prospects . . . .  
TC : 1/9/2018 12:51 pm : link
to former Giants player, but he really DOES have more than a few similarities in his game to Bradshaw. Very hard to bring down for his size, great vision, quickness and balance. Looks like a 3rd or 4th round pick.

But I'm not sure he offers very much different from Gallman. So the question is do the Giants want another RB similar to Gallman, or something different.

Chubb has more power, but I agree, seems to give up too easily on some plays, and may not be in great shape.

I'm still looking for a bigger, complimentary back to Gallman to do the dirty work.

Perhaps someone like Chunn of Troy, late. He's got a little Alstott in his game.

Chunn Highlights - ( New Window )
Don't know if Derrius Guice will be there in the 2nd  
Greg from LI : 1/9/2018 1:01 pm : link
But he's another one I'd keep in mind.
I like Michel  
adamg : 1/9/2018 2:17 pm : link
But I'd rather take Billy Price if he's there.

I think there'll be a good enough back there in the fourth.

Rather go QB, OL, LB, then RB.

Thanks Pete. NYG needs to infuse some violence on offense.

Btw, I posted on BBI last April during the draft Kamara was on the NYG radar right behind Tomlinson. Would've been a solid pick too.

You could say that about any position that has a lot of talent in the draft. There is still a difference between the excellent players at the top, and the average-good players down the list.

Maybe we should just skip the 1st round entirely because we can get better value later on.

I'd like the Giants to draft Michel or Guice if they don't draft  
Ira : 1/10/2018 8:28 am : link
Barkley. The problem is, I expect both to go somewhere in the first round.
