I'd take Gurley over Cooper. Gurley has that it all; the power 230-240 bruiser, and the speed 4.36-4.4 40 track star speed. He has been the best back in the SEC even as a Freshman (bama kid was good but would love to see what would happen were they to swap OL). Gurley would be more important to Shula's O than cooper as well.
Looking toward 2015, I wouldnt mind trading up for Gurley if he is the real deal. I'm not placing the crown on Barner bc I dont believe that he can be full time cow bell for any team. He's a good 3rd back that comes in and change the pace of the game. With that, RB could be a possibility going into 2015. But, first we have to fill a lot of needs before we can talk about another RB. We have too much needs with too much guys on their last year of contract now.
But, I'm not sure if I would rather have Todd Gurley or "Amari Cooper" in 2015.
We do have many needs we need to address such as WR, OL, and DB. Remember how much we have invested into Stew and Dwill (thank you Hurney)? We pick up Gurley and put him with Barner which could end up being just as good as the other 2 with Cam. Stew and Dwill will be gone, freeing up a Nice chunk of change to get solid OL, DB, WR. May not get a superstar (can't have them at every position) at those position but can definitely get Solid starters at all those spots with that money. Especially after we get done with this draft which I think Gettleman can knock 1-2 of those in the first 2 rounds of this years draft.
Wrap up a top front 7 for the next couple years, grab 1-2 top calibre DB's in the first round or 2 this year. Solidifies potentially the best D in the league.
Wrap up Cam, have our franchise QB for the next several years. Draft Gurley even if we have to trade a 3rd or even more that season (doubt it'll take more unless projected top 5). Even if he does continue to improve, pull a Falcons Julio situation. Have a Stud young RB duo one being potential superstar. If still have 2nd still continue to strengthen that secondary or grab a OL. Bye Bye stewie/dwill. Hello Solid WR or 2 and or solid OL.
Im not even sure if Dwill will be on this team next year. With all the injuries throughout Stew's career and a lot of money tied up to him, he may not even be on this team in 2015.
