TOTALLY different positions.

FS - SS

ROLB - MLB - LOLB

UT - NT

OT - OG

All different positions.


HB and FB are different positions however in the realm of footall and rosters, they both fall under running backs. Regardless of what position a LB played on the roster they are called linebackers not outside or will or strong or mike. Only undear a depth chart does this distinction come into play. And we all know a depth chart and player roster are two different things.

I dont know if this has been said before, I haven't read through this entire thread. Would you rather have Tolbert or an awesome blocking FB? I lean towards Tolbert. I think he is more useful.


In today's NFL....give me Tolbert over a guy like Hoov

Not sure personnel will change based on what Shula wants to do. I think it will be more about what Rivera wants Shula to do.

He's not known for it, but Tolbert actually did a decent job of run blocking this year.

You could get a guy like Phillip Lutzenkirchen from Auburn in the late rounds who was a helluva tight end but also played fullback (and played it well) in many of Auburn's offensive sets. He got injured in 2012 and had to have surgery to repair a torn labrum and missed half the season and his stock has probably dropped accordingly.



I agree the fb is one of the few positions you can pick up a impact player in later rounds

If we spend any legitimate resources on a backer of any kind this offseason I'll put my hair out.

We don't need a "true run blocker man full back!" because they don't exist anymore. They are useless because you don't run the ball enough in this league for them to be valuable enough over a guy who can line up in the slot and catch the football.
