Could be.  Would have to sort that out in camp, but which of Linder/Lindstrom at C/RG is a good problem to have either way.

I mean, i'm probably a bit higher than some people on McGary, but 6th round is legitimately baffling.  :S

 

With Jacobs, i do think he'd be a more than adequate replacement for Yeldon.  I still just don't really know what exactly seems to set him so far apart from Harris for a lot of people.  Other than DJ's thing that vaulted Jacobs straight into the spotlight.  Like Harris is also has good vision, pass catching ability, and seems stout in pass protection.  A bit higher mileage maybe?  But idk.  Maybe Harris wasn't even available in that mock for all i know.

Harris isn’t going to do much of anything next level he is a solid college running back the kid lacks that explosive burst that you need next level. Jacobs pretty much sat behind Harris similar to how Tribisky sat behind Marquise Williams at UNC. People wondered why if Tribisky was the NFL talent why was Williams starting over him? People didn’t know in a college setting Williams was the clear leader of that squad the team rallied around him. But it’s sort of a similar situation in Ala. Harris worked hard all 4 yrs and was the leader of the RB room but all the scouts know next level that if Jacobs links with a coach that’s going to coach him up and use his talent he could be an impact player if he stays healthy next level. I may start drooling if the Jags draft Jacobs highly doubt it would happen because what we need and where he'll be drafted wouldn't sync up but would love to see him in teal the kid is just a gritty, tough, football player.

I don't know about that.  I don't think it was purely a "seniority" thing getting Harris carries.  He might not be a "special" back at the next level, but he's got a lot going for him.  Can do a pretty good job of pretty much everything.

I just have a hard time reconciling this notion that Jacobs is the vastly superior "dynamic, explosive runner"...with the numbers that seem to indicate he's actually got a much much lower percentage of actual "explosive run plays" than Harris on the same team.

Yeah.  That's the whole catch-22 of it with Metcalf.  If he falls, it'll almost certainly be because of concerns about his injuries.  Or a bum combine because he's way overbulked or something maybe.  But if the medicals look good, i don't see any way he falls to our 2nd.
