Here's my simple argument against D. Henry

If big RB's are so great- why haven't there been more? 

Are you willing to bet that Henry is the exception instead of the rule? 

I'm not- not in the first round.

Voathe has been pretty adamant on twitter that we like Utah RB Devontae Booker. What are your thoughts on that Igo?

Here's a simple fact.  If you spend a first round pick on anybody not named Adrian Peterson, Todd Gurley, Leonard Fournette, or Samaje Perine at the RB position.  You probably need to rethink your skills as a GM.  

This quote will be my new signature if DH is the pick.

Don't worry, when he starts sucking ass.  You'll be sure to take that poo out of your sig in a heartbeat.  

Name an RB that turned out to be worth a first round pick that was 6'3+ and 230+.  Don't worry, I'll wait.

so yes I agree but he IS the exception, thank you for proving my point - we see hundreds of RBs in the league every year (including backups and practice squad) and PLENTY of talented large men------so why aren't there more huge RB's 

I'm not saying Henry won't succeed but that certainly IS NOT the rule- he would be an exception

Maybe the third round if he is there and DH was not the pick.

If it makes any difference I took a TE in my Panther's Madden franchise after winning the Superbowl (32 man league). Released Olsen two seasons after, won 3 straight Superbowls and a 19-0 season.

It is fated...lol

Do you realize that telling us you know better than Gettleman is absolutely hilarious?

Now, if Henry is picked in the 2nd round.  I'm okay with that.  I just wouldn't use a first rounder on a guy that ran 40+ times a damn game this past year at Bama.

Hard to be upset about any of these picks. Hunter Henry would be my favorite because I think he has the rarest talent in the whole draft; a TE with his skill set only comes along once in a while. I haven't looked at Butler much because I assume he will go before 30, but he'd be a no brainer at 30 (thanks for the film). Ogbah will most likely be the best DE available at 30 and is definitely worth a 1st round pick. Derrick Henry scares me a bit because he has potential to be a miss. He has a high center of gravity and has been used a lot at Bama. I worry about his legs taking too much punishment, but if G-man likes him at 30 who the hell am I to argue?

So, that's my preference order if all 4 are on the board at 30: H. Henry, Butler, Ogbah, D. Henry.

When it comes to RB's is picking one in the first round that isn't a guarantee a horrible thing to do?  

Isn't this common sense in today's NFL?  I mean, I don't know more than Gettlemen when it comes to football.  But common sense should be common, right?

This is my thing as well.  Next years RB class is fuging stacked.  Fournette, Chubb, Perine, just to name a few.  Derrick Henry will be the first pick in the Gettlemen era that I will say "yeah, even I could've done better than that."

Chubb is a beast, if he stays healthy he will be a feature back in the NFL.

Sounds like Marc James saying DON'T pick Cam because NEXT YEAR'S QB class was supposed to be awesome.  Nick Foles is better than Cam people!

Not to mention if those dudes are REALLY that good they won't be there at 32.

I've gotten the sense lately that if he's on the board that Butler will be the pick.  Unfortunately, That would also mean that he's likely Star's replacement (even though we would still have Star for two more years).

If Butler is gone, though, I think Ogbah will be the pick.  I feel fairly certain that one of them, at least, will be there at 30.  Both would strengthen our DL, but Ogbah is a bigger current need.

I think both Henry's could be good players for us, I just don't think either are first round values.  Hunetr is being propped up because it's a weak TE draft, and Derrick is being pushed because he is a traditional downhill runner, which fits our MO.
