    I'm a Gator and would LOVE to see Gillislee on our team. He's quick, shifty, and rarely puts the ball on the ground. The guy can make plays. Wish he was coming back for another year.

    Gillislee is probably one of my favorite RB prospects in this draft.

    Reminds me alot of Demarco Murray.

    If he's there in Round 4 and we haven't taken a back yet, he's the guy I want.

    a rb is certainly on the way but i could see two olinemen and a olb selected before a back. the position seems to have taken a backseat in importance.

    This is why you don't sign an overpriced injury prone veteran. Plenty of good backs in college.

    That would explain a 4th-5th round projection.

    I really want Joseph Randle from OK State. He seems to be a complete back.

    I like him too. He just needs to bulk up a bit. He's built like a receiver right now

    Was at that game. Was he the one who broke off a 40 yard run for a TD that pretty much ended the game? If EJ didnt play the worst game of his life, FSU wins that game.

    Not sure how good Ball even is considering his outstanding blocking.

    As long as we don't reach with a 1st or 2nd round pick on one of these crappy RBs I'm fine with it. There is not one complete back in this draft. I'd be happy with Gee Gee Greene in the 6th round really.

    Gillislee a new name for me. Looks like he'd be a good value in the 5th. I'm pretty much adamantly opposed to drafting a RB in the first or second, and would even be a bit annoyed in the third. Tannenbaum had the right idea drafting mid-round backs, just not a great eye.

    Tanny had the final say but Lynn, Bradway and Clinkscales all wanted Greene. Bradway and Clinkscales pleaded with Tanny to trade up for Greene.

    Greene was a great compliment to Thomas Jones. That tandem worked fantastically. At the end of the year, Greene was a monster.

    With LT as a starter, it worked well when Greene came in for clean up.

    Greene as a starter doesn't work so well.

    He's a closer. You can tell from the results on the field.

    We already have someone similar to Gillislee on the roster. His name is Bilal Powell. I'd rather the Jets pick up Jonathan Franklin from UCLA. Very good receiver and a more powerful runner. If they'd rather wait until a little later to take a back, Miguel Maysonet is going to be a steal for someone late in the draft.

    Jets already have McKnight and Powell. Jets dont need another small RB if they plan on jetting SG out of NY.. If the jets keep Greene and Powell then drafting Gillislee wouldn't be a prob with me. U cant have Powell, McKnight & Gillislee without atleast 1 Smashmouth RB. 3 barely over 200 lb RB wont cut it in nfl...

    Jets RB depth

    Greene #1
    Gillislee #2
    Powell #3

    That will work 4 me!!!

    195 lbs RB's dont last in the nfl unless they only touch the ball acouple times here & there. Look at Javhid Best
