So if the Chiefs are drafting in the late first round and he's sitting there, thoughts?

I'm usually anti RB early, but I've kind of changed my tune seeing what these dudes that can catch and run can do for an offense.

I think he can be a Kamara type dude and in this offense that would be fun.

I'd probably rank them
1. Taylor
2. Dobbins
3. Swift
4. Hubbard
5. Etienne
6. Akers
7. Hill

Theres alot of other later options too that I wouldn't be opposed to. I think Moss, Vaughn, Ragas, LeMay, Robinson, and Ward are guys to keep an eye on.
Per your comment, I put my eye on some video of Moss. Kid looks good. Could be an option in round 3 if available.

Zack Moss, RB, Utah
Height: 5-10. Weight: 215.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2020): 1-3.
Moss averaged six yards per carry for 1,416 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also had 28 catches for 388 yards and two scores. Some sources believe Moss is a second- or third-round pick as they feel he is a tough runner with a good build. Others who are really high on him think he could have late first-round talent. However, a good medical report leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft is needed as some teams have medical concerns about Moss. Moss was a workhorse for the Utes as a power runner with quickness and receiving ability. He put together an excellent 2019 season.

Yes Moss is gonna be right there for us In round 3 or 4 imo and would be a decent option. Although tbh the more I look at it, the more I think we might get Akers In the middle rounds. Kid has first round talent imo and is good between the tackles, catching the ball and actually THROWS the ball as well which makes him an even bigger weapon for Andy to use.

In the latest Walter Mock he has KC drafting Etienne at 93, late 3rd round. That seems incredibly unlikely, no? Him lasting until 93 that is.

I could be completely wrong, but I do not see the Chiefs investing in an early round running back with Damien Williams, Darrel Williams, Darwin Thompson and also Elijah McGuire and Mike Weber currently on practice squad.

Big needs are CB, MLB, and so on...

Unlikely, and yes CB, LB and even more so, IOL are needs. Even WR qnd TE2 over RB once Sammy and possibly Robinson are gone. Etienne would be a perfect fit in this offense. As a strictly value proposition though, i would not hate CEH from LSU rounds later. Dude has shown great elusiveness, balance, quickness and vision in several games I saw him play this season.

Yeah, Clyde Edwards-Helaire reminds me a lot of Maurice Jones-Drew. Hes a short, squatty, powerful guy. Might really just be a 3rd down back but has enough power he might be able to carve out a feature back role in the right systems.

I've liked Akers as the perfect fit for us for a while now.

I read an article about Etienne which had comments from his press conference after the LSU game...sounded like he was NOT going back to Clemson..so we'll see. IF he decides to stay he would probably be the number one back off the board and earn more money but I can't see him risking it tbh and I think he'd fit perfectly into our offense. The only question is do they go for it In the second or third round? He's not lasting beyond that imo.

I think you may be overvaluing the position.

I don't think very many teams that DO overvalue running backs will be drafting them this spring (Dallas, Giants, Tenn)

I think you'll see a few go, but I'd just about guarantee that no more than 4 go in the first two rounds.

I could be wrong, but I'd just about bet that even picking at #32 (!!) in the 3rd we could have Benjamin or Akers.

So fucking stupid. You’re a RB kid. Every extra carry/year is hurting your value.

He may have promised his Mom or other family members that he'll graduate
