Does anyone think we might use Kenjon in a way the Vikings used Percy, in the slot some, out of the backfield, just wherever they can get him on the field to help?

The stuff I have seen on the kid, he looks as good as Harvin did coming out of college. I know some people wanted Austin to help out Cam, but this kid is Taller and Thicker than Austin and if he can pick up some route running skills, could be a real steal for us.

Just my 2 cents...

Thatd be nice.


I think he ends up being KR, while Ginn is PR.

The same was said about Pilhares. It doesn't mean anything if the coaches refuse to craft a role for you. I wouldn't expect anybody to go out of their way to make sure a 6th round pick gets a few designed plays. Barner was brought in for depth purposes and we drafted BPA down our board. I wouldn't consider him even on our radar in terms of actual game time until he comes in and proves he can handle snaps up here.

I respectfully disagree.

He's the second fastest guy on the team behind Ginn and has good hands. A good coach utilizes every tool he has. I don't think he's an every down back, but Rivera has been asking for a scat back for awhile now, now he has it.

Also, he may see much playing time in 2014 when we release/trade Dwill, I like to think he'll get his feet wet this season.

I actually see Barner as more of a scat back, Darren Sproles type. I know a ton of people were down on the pick but I think he could end up making a very big impact in year one. Giving Cam the option to throw to RB's in check downs will be critical, unfortunately Williams and Tolbert have average hands while Stewart has stone hands when it comes to catching out of the backfield. I see us using Barner as a check down, screen play back. The fact we drafted Barner gives us flexibility to either cut or trade Williams or Stewart.

should fit in our adaptive system perfectly.

not sure if that spells doom for dangelo this season or next, but regardless should be a nice system back.

He ran almost a 4.6 forty time. That's not the fastest. Gettis ran a 4.2 forty

Sproles.

You saw what happened to SD's O when he left for NO.

Rivera know what those guys can give you.

i doubt Gettis is running 4.2's anymore after his injury- hopefully im wrong and he is the sole reason we didnt go after a WR in the draft

A 4.39 is almost a 4.6?

Also Gettis ran a 4.4 something at the combine.
