Clyde Edwards-Helaire Must Be Picked

April 15th, 2020

Joe’s good friend and Bill Currie Ford general manager Sean Sullivan happens to be one of the top students of the NFL Draft on the planet. For decades he’s been studying the draft year-round in his free time. A lifelong Bucs fan, Sullivan penned a 2019 column here on his must-have draft pick for the Bucs.

Please enjoy his 2020 edition below.


As Bucs fans we have endured years of mediocrity at the running back position. We strive for 4 yards a carry and an occasional goal line touchdown.

Why have we settled for this as a franchise?

Every Sunday I see winning teams enjoy watching electric plays from their running backs as they control the line of scrimmage while maintaining their leads. It’s time we stepped up and drafted our franchise running back and his name is Clyde.

He is the best all-purpose running back in this class, and he succeeds at every aspect of the position, including pass protections for our new Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

A true three-down back that never has to come off the field, that’s the outlet Brady needs.

The Patriots had 4 of the top 50 receiving backs since 2001: Names like Kevin Faulk, James White, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead, and Dion Lewis were made Super Bowl champions – and household names — because Brady loves his all-purpose backs.

Add Clyde Edwards-Helaire to the list for 2020.

His 2019 stats LSU stats were 215 carries for 1,414 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground, plus 1 TD from 55 receptions and 453 yards. He produced in 2018, as well.

Those 55 catches his senior year make him the perfect complement for the Brady-Arians offense.

My NFL comparison is Maurice Jones-Drew with better hands. — From your favorite Ford GM.

    So spend a first round pick, right? Because that’s what you’ll have to do. Perhaps trade back a tick, but a first rounder is required.

    Another check in the trade down box….

  3. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Not will to use a first or second rounder on a RB. This draft is deep for RB. Can pick up one in the later rounds.

  4. Greg Says:

    Great article. I watched this guy all year he is special. Great vision, allusive, power, quickness. A swiss army knife that can do it all. Dont be surprised if hes the first or second back take. Bucs should wait until after they have solved their right tackle first but if elite tackles are gone trade back just a couple spots and grab this kid.

  5. BeeBucs Says:

    1. Swift
    2. CEH

    In that order!

  6. JimmyJack Says:

    When I read the list of RBs Tom had in New England it actually makes me feel better about the RB position.

    If guys like Faulk and Vereen could get the job done it kinda makes the case that we don’t need a superstar at the position. I do think we need somebody who can do more in the passing game then RoJo.

    Call me crazy but I actually think if all else fails Tom could get nice production from Ogunbowale. Maybe even T.J. Logan could be a factor. Cause even if you draft a RB in the second round nothing is guaranteed.

  7. Posey99 Says:

    I would take Clyde over any running back. He’s that good. And the excellent at everything.

  8. Joeypoppems Says:

    I dont want to see the Bucs use another top 50 pick on a RB when they just used one on Rojo. BUT, if they do decide to do that for whatever reason, CEH is head and shoulders the best option for what this team needs.

    I just believe you are wasting a premium pick. If u draft a RB at 45, you are basically giving up on Rojo even tho he just had 1000 yards from scrimmage without getting a full workload most of the year.

    Or if you take a RB at 45, he ends up splitting the work with Rojo or even becomes a 3rd down back. Then what? Congrats, we now have the most expensive RBBC in the league. We used 2 top 50 picks to do what good teams do with Day 3 picks and UDFA.

    So while I agree CEH is the best option, its just too expensive imo. Use the premium pick on DL or WR. Need DL depth and a pass rush upgrade/replacement for Suh. And the #3 WR will be more valuable than the #2 RB.

    Zack Moss is the RB who needs to be picked because he has the skillset the RB group is missing and he comes at a cheaper price in the 3rd or 4th round (could slide that far because of the 4.65 40 time).

    Rojo was drafted 38th overall to be the feature back so why replace him when he hasnt had that chance PLUS he just had 1000 scrimmage yards. If they didnt replace him after his awful rookie year, then why now?

  9. Casual Observer Says:

    How good can a 5′ 7″ guy block a 6′ 5”, 250 lb. edge guy?

  10. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    If he’s there in the 2nd round, you take him. He’s a better prospect than RoJo and we took him higher.

  11. Buddhaboy19 Says:

    Certainly looks like the real deal. I wouldn’t be mad if we drafted him in the 1st.
    You know he will come in and contribute right away.

    Surprising that Licht hasn’t attempted to address this position in the offseason with someone that Brady trusts.

  12. Zwak Says:

    Well if the manager at a car lot says so…

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    There is likely only one way to assure you get CEH………and that is to trade up in the 2nd round……maybe using one of our 4th rounders…..I’m opposed to that….I’d rather stay in place and take our chances.

    The only other way is to chose him in round 1 which would be a stretch.

  14. Bird Says:

    Clyde is my favorite running back in this years draft
    Would love to see him in a bucs jersey

  15. Aaron Says:

    I think he’ll be there in the 2nd – anyone remember how good W. Dunn was in pass-pro?

    PFF has a free mock draft simulator that’s fun to play around with…Sorry Joe if I’m not allowed to provide a link to another site.

  16. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Sean makes excellent points. It was hard watching the best National Championship since the playoff era began and not come away with a special appreciation for CEH. If Burrow hadn’t also played lights out CEH was the clear MVP.

    He didn’t against the best competition under the brightest lights.

    I’m tired of the running back drought. Doug Martin was the highlight and he was pretty meh. ROJO is developing and could easily spot CEH…they have similar games except CEH is a far better receiver and blocker.

    Wouldn’t it also be nice to change it up with a back who could actually go beast mode? Dillon in the 4th if he still there. Since we have two 4th rounders we should be able to move up.

    My dream draft is now…RT…if not the “top 4′ there are plenty of capable guys who will available later…trade down and we can get the tackle and lock up CEH as well.

    1.) RT
    2.) CEH if not…Akers
    3.) Safety/DL depth….BPA at biggest need
    4.) Dillon
    Then fill out the roster.

    For all the grief Licht gets here for his drafting he has been a bit of a savant when it comes to the UDFA’s. If we could get another player UDFA…that’s huge..WR comes to mind with all the speedy guys available…should be able to come up with a faster Hump.

  17. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Oops…did it…not didn’t

  18. Jimmy Says:

    >>> Well if the manager at a car lot says so… <<<

    How many guys working a car lot you think know better than to trade up to draft a kicker in the second round?

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    Still stuck on (off) that 4.6 40 time.

  20. Afo Says:

    Draft OT at 14 and if the top 4 are gone trade back and grab Jones, CEH will be there at 45

    Get some serious talent and draft Talyor in 1st

    Don’t go Perine or no 3rd to 7th round picks man. Yall have not learn yet

  25. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Can’t go wrong picking this TIger!!

  26. TheBradyBunch Says:

    Ideally I would say trade back to the mid 20s. If Jones is still there take him, and then use that draft capital to try like hell to move back into the end of the first or very early 2nd to take CEH. I have come full circle on this dude. He looks like he will be the next Alvin Kamara and would be the perfect outlet for Brady. The fact that he is good at pass protection is icing on the cake.

  27. Kobe Faker Says:


    Have you sheep not learned

    BA/LeftoverSandwich likes to pass to the running back only on 3rd down

    BA is going to force our 43 year old goat to his system and scheme

    Our new running back will be fumbling what is a wheel route Jonathan Taylor”

    Kobe Faker

  28. Christopher Schiefen Says:

    Yeah…this “GM” would curse us to Kevin Minter at LB. He was wrong last year and he’s wrong here IMO. CEH isn’t really big, powerful, fast or shifty. I’d take Jonathan Taylor or if he’s gone maybe Cam Akers. Wasn’t impressed with Swift or Dobbins either. I didn’t hate CEH in this highlight package like I did the last one, but I’m just not sure he’s special, even just as a 3rd down back.

  29. alaskabuc Says:

    The voice of reason, great article Sean. I am a firm supporter of this pick if it can be had in the second round or later. OL or DL at 14 I really don’t care as long as they play worthy of their draft pick. Then go make Clyde happen!

  30. SOEbuc Says:

    Trade back in the first for CEH/Delpit and trade up in the second to secure Simmons.

  31. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    Perine is very underrated. Played behind an OL that was not very good at run blocking, and he was a playmaker. Underutilized. Definitely better than Dare on 3rd downs. I would take him with a 4th round pick. I still think we should go after CEH or Akers.

  32. DinoMIGHT Says:

    Swift is much better. Faster, better hands, far more elusive.

  33. Joeypoppems Says:

    Man ya’ll are WILD lmao. Absolutely WILD.

    Ronald Jones had over 700 yards on only 11 carries per game. Behind what was a subpar run blocking OL. We all agree that the OL will most likely be upgraded with the 14th pick if possible.

    If he gets an actual workload (~18 carries a game) behind an improved OL he can be a top 10 RB. And he is still younger than some of these rookies lol.

    This team has a 2 year window and some of you want to take what could end up being a #2 RB in the 1st

    Some of you want to trade up for what could end up being a #2 RB

    Some of you want to draft multiple RBs woth our first 4 picks…

    Ya’ll are W I L D…

  34. Smashsquatch Says:

    Tape don’t lie and CEH is legit. Grab him in the 2nd if he’s still there. Trade back, pick up an extra 2nd and take………

    1. Jones or Jackson OT
    2. Delpit or Dugger S
    2. CEH or Dobbins RB

  35. JimmyJack Says:

    I don’t know what y’all that are crying for more RoJo aren’t getting.

    Just go look up some of the receiving yards Tom Brady’s backs have produced. Then go back to yesterday’s article that said Tom is gonna wanna run some of his plays. We don’t have the back he needs to run those plays. That’s why we need to add to the back field.

    Plus right now we got RoJo and Dare. That’s it. So you are happy with only having those two? That’s insane.

    Also RoJo can’t block. That’s why Arians said he want a three down back. You go back and look at Scotty Miller’s TD vs the Lions. That play does not happen if RoJo is blocking. It’s a sack.

    We need a better backfield then RoJo and nobody else people!!!

    GO BUCS!!!

  36. Oneilbucs Says:

    A.J. Dillon is the runningback we need . He can break tackles that’s what a real running supose to be able to do . No more of the small runningbacks .

  37. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m no draft expert, and I don’t claim to have watched and studied CEH. However, even before I saw his 40 time, I just don’t see an explosive RB. That doesn’t mean he won’t be productive at the NFL level, but I don’t see him being the type of back that can take a play 80 yards to the house. I feel that we are in desperate need of that, so I personally am not too high on this being our pick.

  38. Alanbucsfan Says:

    How much of his success was due to Joe Burrough?

  39. Afo Says:

    Clyde is the best RB in the draft

  40. Joeypoppems Says:


    Brady wanting to throw to RBs and Rojo not being a good receiver doesnt mean replace Rojo. And Arians didnt say we need a three down back, he seemed to imply we need a 3rd down back.

    Im not saying dont draft a RB at all. Im saying dont do it that soon. Zack Moss fits what we need perfectly and should be a cheaper price. He can block and is a better receiever than Rojo.

    There are more pressing needs that this roster has that a top 50 pick can be used for other than a RB that can catch lol.

    Cant believe Brady coming here would make fans cry out loud for the team to draft a RB in the top 50 to do what Charles Simms did lol.

  41. Jean Lafitte Says:

    CEH barely 205lbs @5’7″ soaking wet but somehow he’s a better all around RB than our 220lb RoJo? If the little dude put on more weight we could just roll him towards the line of scrimmage. …and more importantly, how is he as a blocker?

  42. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    AJ Dillon and Antonio Gibson (depending on how the draft for RB’s is going) in the 3rd, 4th, or 5th rounds. Those two, plus RoJo, could give us the best stable of backs in the NFL. Definitely the most rounded.

  43. Joeypoppems Says:

    @Hawaiian Buc

    CEH does not have long speed, that is correct. The reason he is a good fit for the Bucs is his receiving ability. He isnt McCaffrey, but in terms of route running and receiving ability he is probably the closest guy to McCaffrey to come out since.

  44. Joeypoppems Says:


    Plus Rojo will be 23 when the season starts. The same age as some of these rookies except he is going inti his 3rd NFL offseason. He is still developing and he can grow, including as a receiver.

    Its a very real chance that he can beat out a rookie RB no matter who it is. I hope you are all aware of that.

    So you would be using a premium pick on the least valuable position on offense when you have a 2 year window to win now. And that guy might end up being a 3rd down back

    Absolutely mind boggling that you all would want this lol.

  45. Jeagan1999 Says:

    I would have no problem with this guy early in Round 2. But he might be gone by then. My choice would be Dobbins, who I think is equally explosive, but we will have to see where the chips fall.

  46. TOM Says:

    IMHO I believe Dobbins is the best back in the draft for the Bucs. Faster, bigger & all around better back than Haire

  47. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Antonio Gibson, RB/WR, 6-0, 228, 4.39, Memphis

  48. Afo Says:

    I hope CEH will be there at 45, he’s the best Rb in the draft. I’ll rather have the best Rb in the draft at 45 than having scrap or 7th best RB at 117, most of the best running back in the league at the moment were drafted between 1-50.

  49. Afo Says:

    @Joey most of the RB make instant impact. I’m not convince on ROJO, I’ll CEH at 45, he’ll make instant impact and after OT, our next need of to get a RB, BA said we need a back for 4rd down

  50. MadMax Says:


  51. JimmyJack Says:

    Joeypoppems…….I don’t get into all this “least valuable” positions bullcrap. I can understand it to a extent but when you are talking about adding a RB how could make a major impact on this team I consider that pretty dang valuable. Talking yourself out of a player because of their position can be counterproductive.

    Just like I said. Go look at what Tom Brady RBs have done in the passing game. If we can add that is extremely valuable.

    To me a premium pick has to be about impact. We can literally add a whole new dimension to this offense with a premier pass catching back. Defense will have so much more to think about and cover. That’s a huge impact that I’m looking for…,……….And no. It’s not the only position we can draft and make an impact. Not saying RB or bust with that pick. But I don’t see how anybody could adamantly be against that position.

    None of that mentions we have no depth at all at that position and our player is kinda unproven.

    RoJo cannot run a full compliment of routes and he cannot block. Those jobs are huge needs on this team that we gotta address. If not we are stuck with Dare? I don’t know why you’d be comfortable with Dare playing that big of a role…….If we don’t draft a RB high we better sign somebody or we have a glaring weekness that we didn’t address.

    And yes RoJo could do all them things you said. And he also couldn’t. Either way he hasn’t shown enough promise where we can call him a bellcow and say we’re all set. He wasn’t a three down back last year………So now he’s our backfield and we are just assuming he will turn into one? That doesn’t even make sense.

  52. Barbosa Says:

    Draft tackle first. O line, D line, don’t care. Then get a RB. Hell draft two of them.

  53. Joeypoppems Says:


    Needing a back for 3rd down doesnt mean its the 2nd biggest need lol. You can sign a RB to excel at 3rd down situations lol. DT, and WR are both bigger needs than a 2nd RB. I dont see how this is even a debate.

    Suh is on a 1 year deal and was ineffective as a pass rusher last year. Worse than GMC. And he is on a 1 year deal. Getting a rotational DT that can rush the passer and replace Suh in 2021 at 45 like Justin Madubuike is a bigger impact than a 3rd down RB.

    Scotty Miller is our WR3 right now. That quickly becomes WR2 if something happens to Godwin or Evans like last year. This isnt Koetter’s offense where we are in 2 TE sets most of the time. The 3rd WR will be on the field more often than a #2 RB. Upgrading WR3 at 45 with someone like Jalen Reagor is a bigger impact than a #2 RB.

    Blows my mind that you guys think replacing a guy who just had 1000 scrimmage yards is more important than those other positions. Especially when RBs are so devalued.

    Do we need a RB? Absolutely. But that doesnt mean use a top 50 pick to replace Rojo. Nothing wrong with getting a guy in the 3rd-4th round and the sign a vet.

    Zack Moss
    Carlos Hyde

    Thats a greatly improved RB group while still being able to use the premium picks to improve more important needs that replacing someone who just had 1000 yards.

  54. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete Says:

    Not fast enough, in my opinion…

    He might be good, but not great I think…

    I’d much rather have JK Dobbins or Cam Akers, personally.

  55. Svenson Says:

    I am not sure why people are sleeping on Jonathan Taylor. His production and measurables are amazing. While also not being asked to be a big player in the passing game, when he was asked he showed great hands. He has more tread worn off his tires, but who cares–it almost never makes sense to sign a RB to a second contract. I am not discounting CEH, but find it surprising that Taylor is ranked by many behind a guy like CEH. Also, if we are looking for a 3rd down back, I rather sign a guy in FA, like Chris Thompson. Using high draft capital for a part time player doesn’t make a ton of sense to me.

  56. Joeypoppems Says:

    And if most RBs make an impact then we wouldnt still be talking about needing one for the past 4 years. We have one in Rojo. Build the group around him. Dont replace him. If you replace him you either wasted a Top 50 pick in 2018 or we waste a top 50 pick this year because we draft someone to share time at the least important position on offense.

    You guys do realize good teams use committees at RB because its cheap, right? 2 top 50 picks isnt cheap.

    Cant believe this has to actually be said lol

  57. Anonymous Says:

    Joe in Michigan,
    Agree brother. Gibson is a beast and so versatile as WR threat as well. Would love to get him on board with a later pick.
    Lots of great RBs to choose from this year.

  58. JimmyJack Says:

    Joey maybe go listen to some Bruce Arians quotes. Don’t remember when he said this but according to Ira he said he wanted a 3 down back.

    So if we did draft one in the second round it would not be intended for him to be the RB#2. He would be #1.

    And the fact that Ronald Jones was a top 50 pick means absolutely nothing at this point. That’s was ages ago. They have to draft based on how the team looks and what they need. If which draft spots meant a dam after a year or two we would not have drafted any corners last year cause we had a Top draft choice(Vernon) on the team.

    The fact is they probably don’t see Ronald as a RB #1. That’s why Bruce said he wants a 3 down back. And it’s why they kept taking Ronald off the field last year. Right now they don’t have a #1 RB on the roster(in their eyes) that’s why you spend a high pick on one.

  59. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Thomas or Wills in the 1st. CEH in the 2nd. And safety with out next pick. That’s my dream draft. I like Rojo a lot but CEH is someone who can come in day 1 and improve our team.

    We need more than 1 RB and Dare isnt that guy. CEH and Rojo would give us a stud RB tandem to pair with our stud WR’s and TE’s.

  60. Joeypoppems Says:


    They have done nothing but sing the praises of Ronald Jones for 2 offseasons lol. Even after he had 20 carries for 40 yards or whatever his god awful rookie year was they talked about how confident they were that he can be the guy. Again, if they had confidence in him after his awful rookie year, why lose confidence in him after 1000 scrimmage yards? Just doesnt make any sense.

    And also, again, if you look at this roster you will see replacing a guy who had 1000 yards in limited touches is not the 2nd biggest issue on the roster. DL and WR depth are a bigger are of concern.

    He does have limitations, yes. In his blocking and somewhat as a receiver (caught 31 of 40 targets so i shouldnt say he is “bad” at it). Which is why he was staying off the field.

    Your point about CBs. Completely different. CBs are one of the premier positions where if you dont have a guy you should keep trying to find one. And VH3 never produced so there was no reason not to replace him whereas at least Rojo showed something last year.

    Im with you that RB needs to be addressed, I just dont think they need a workhorse, which is what you should be hoping to get with a top 50 pick (which is why i bring up his draft stock. He was drafted 38th because they thought he could be a workhorse. Now he shows glimpses of being able to and its time to give up? Mkaes noe sense)

    And it can be intended for a rookie RB to be the 3 down starter, but it is a possiblity that Rojo can simply beat out that rookie and remain the starter. Then you ised a top 50 pick on a RB for him to just be a 3rd down back. Look at Seattle. Drafted Penny in the 1st and he got beat out by UDFA Chris Carson.

    Im hoping they use 45 to fill a different more important need. WR3, DT, i wouldnt hate it if they took an OG tbh.

  61. AwShbucs Says:

    I’d honestly be down to trade down, take Clyde In the late first round, then turn around and take Cam Akers in the 2nd.

    That would give us one of the best rotations of young RBS in the league ala what the 49ers showcased last year with Matt Brieda, Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert.

  62. Afo Says:

    @Awshbucs as much I want ab RB I can’t waste the first round pick on RB, not many team are interested in RB in this draft. At 45 Swift, CEH, Dobbins or Taylor will definitely be there

  63. JimmyJack Says:

    Poppems…….I’m just trying to make a guess at what the orginization is thinking. In that vein my opinion and your opinion matters very little. That’s why I am regurgitating what Ira said.

    He is tied closely to key members of the Front Office so what he says can actually give us a glimpse into what the orginization may be thinking………And on several poscasts he has repeatedly stated that Bruce says he wants a 3 down back. What does that tell you? It tells me that they don’t believe RoJo is a RB1. And they want to upgrade his position. Ira also stated he would be shocked if we come out of the top 3 rounds without a RB……….It seems pretty clear that the team doesn’t really see RoJo as a #1…………And they could still think he is a fine #2 and sing his paraises at the same time. That doesn’t necessarily mean much.

    At the end of the day we can disagree all day. It’s not gonna change what the team thinks about Jones. I’m just saying you might wanna get on board that the team may want to draft one of the top backs this year…….Otherwise you could be dissapointed next week.

    And you are right about the comparison to Corners from last year. The position is a different animal………Although you could make the conclussion that even though they stayed with Vernon to start the season they had little confidence he could get the job done so they were proactive and drafted possible replacements. I’m sure they would have stuck with Vernon had he played like a legit #1 but he didn’t and thankfully they were prepared. This situation could be similar in the sense that they have little confidence Ronald can get the job done as a #1.

  64. Joeypoppems Says:


    Also just so im being clear. Me saying dont take a RB at 45 doesnt mean dont take one at all. They absolutely NEED to draft a RB. I just dont believe that after Rojo improved last year he is just gonna go away. So in my mind if you draft a RB at 45, you are drafting someone to splitwork woth Rojo.

    Drafting a better talent at DT that can help the pass rush or a better talent at WR has more of an impact on the team than drafting a better talent at RB to split work.

    If they can find a way to come away with…

    Jedrick Wills
    Justin Madubuike
    Jalen Reagor
    Zack Moss

    That would be winning the draft. I doubt its likely to happen unless guys slide. That would give you a starting RT (Wills), a pass rush upgrade on the IDL and Suh’s replacement for 2021 (Madubuike), a big upgrade to WR3 who brings a speed element we dont have (Reagor), and RB depth/compliment to Rojo who can block and be used as a receiver on checkdowns, screens, swing passes, etc. (Moss).

    Add some IOL depth on day 3 and i would be thrilled with this.

  65. Posey99 Says:

    People saying he’s slow because of his 40 time is silly. Top end speed isn’t that important for a running back. Burst through the hole, vision, elusiveness and ability to break tackles…waaaaay more important. And how often does a RB really have a 40 yard run? Clyde 4.6 / Emmitt Smith 4.52

  66. Joeypoppems Says:


    Oh for sure man, I just like to debate lol. And yea i realize that its very possible that they do go that route at 45. Like I said, skill wise, CEH is head and shoulders above the rest imo for what the team needs at RB.

    Another reason I bring up conversations like this from time to time is to try to say “hey a top 5 RB isnt the only way we need to go”. So I just like to try to bring some attention to other possibilities as well.

    OT at 14 and RB at 45 are so well documented and expected at this point its fun for me to just speculate about other options. Although I do think Zack Moss can be Kareem Hunt in many ways lol.

    At the end of the day, we all want the same thing brotha.

    Poppems…..It’s a fun debate for sure. Lets save it for another day…….Like after the draft when we take a RB in Round 1 and you flip your lid…….hahaha

    Or maybe we take a WR 3 in the 1st and you can talk me off the ledge.

  69. JimmyJack Says:

    The one position that seems to go under the radar is Safety…….I think some fans are gonna lose their minds if we use a high pick on another DB but I just can’t get Bowles success at that position out of my mind.

    Maybe it was just a coincidence that great players just fell to Bowles team at that position. But they very well could be intentional targets and Bowles value a Top End Safety for his defense. I just can’t ignore the results. HoneyMan, Jamal Adams? I want one of them on my team!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Gona have to trade back into the first i think to get this guy. All it takes is one Seahawk GM to take him. Rashad Penny went in the first for goodness sake

  71. RODNEY ALLEN Says:

    Now him I really like if we get him I would be very happy 💯

  72. Will Says:

    CEH had a great line in front of him and a Heisman Trophy quarterback. He played great all season long no doubt but if we can’t get him stop sleeping on Cam Akers the guy had non of what CEH had on offense and was still a very productive back. Watch his ultimate highlights on YouTube and you’ll be very impressed. He’s not getting a lot of hype because FSU hasn’t been dominant but he’s my sleeper. Imo he’s like Kamara and will be a match-up nightmare.

  73. Bucs Guy Says:

    OT in the first and CEH in the 2nd. I’m very happy with that.

  74. Bucforlife Says:

    CEH is great, and can definitely be had in the second round, but really this draft is so deep everywhere including RB that we can take someone round two and make a big impact

  75. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Like your idea of three talented RB’s who can switch it up. Many teams are using at minimum two…I think the days of the “workhorse” are in the past with a couple of exceptions.

    My only disagreement is I would take both CEH and Akers…but I’d be happy with either one and then match a beast mode back like Dillon. We’d have a complementary backfield instead of three clones.

    But I totally agree about having 3 backs. Dare…Peyton are not NFL quality starters.

  76. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Oops…one or the other…CEH or Cam

  77. Buczilla Says:

    I’m good taking this guy with our second round pick even though had a slow 40 for his height/weight. He plays fast as sin and is fun to watch.

  78. Confused Buc Fan Says:

    @hotel ” Arians didnt say we need a three down back, he seemed to imply we need a 3rd down back”. You are dead wrong on that, he specifically said 3 down back, one who doesn’t come off the field. Now, this does not invalidate your entire argument necessarily but u need to be clear on this point if u r going to quote Arians.

  79. Confused Buc Fan Says:

    * @joeyp (not sure where the neck ‘hotel’ came from)

    @Hawaiian Buc
    I hardly ever comment… I just read, everyday to get my fill on the Bucs. I read most articles, then I read 5 or 6 of the same poster’s comments because they seem intelligent and I skip the rest… Where have you been? Ironic, maybe hypocritical of someone that doesn’t wish to get into the petty name calling and negativity of this site… I wish you’d post more

  82. Joeypoppems Says:

    @confused buc fan

    I didnt quote him. Thats why i said imply

  83. Oneilbucs Says:

    We need a runningback that can close out games so we don’t have to throw so much . A.J Dillon is that runningback go check him out . I don’t really care if he can catch . We need a running back that can run the ball . The catching runningback haven’t worked out for us .

  84. firethecannons Says:

    get Ruggs#14 then trade up in second and get CEH or wait and get him at #45 or get Taylor or even cam akers in the 3rd
