    Could they be setting up to send Jordan packing? I dunno. Or is this guy a 3rd down/Richie Anderson/Chad Morton-specials guy?

    This is a good pick. He's a good backup for Sowell. Not quite FB, not quite HB. This was a need pick.

    Askew started off as a TB at Michigan and then switched to FB this year. From what I saw he has outstanding receiving skills and was an integral part of Michigan&#39;s offense. He will take over Richie&#39;s role and might push Sowell for the starting FB job. I like the pick&#33;

    I don&#39;t care how good this player is ... NO WAY should we have taken a lousy FB in the 3rd RD

    Horrible Pick&#33;&#33;

    We need a WR ... OL ... CB ... SS ... EVEN ANOTHER LB&#33;&#33;&#33;

    And we toss away a 3rd RD Pick on a FB?????

    BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD MOVE&#33;&#33;

    According to Sporting News Draft Mag , he&#39;s the best receiving FB in the draft. A " tailback/fullback hybrid with athleticism, toughness and hands. Caught 34 passes as a senior."

    Anytime you can get the best rated player at his position in the third round you pull the trigger.solid pick to pay divedends right away on special teams.

    All I know is ... this player better be friggin John Riggins&#33;&#33;

    Cause I am NOT an advocate of drafting a FB this high ... ESPECIALLY when you have other needs and NO 4TH ROUND PICK&#33;&#33;

    I retract. I wasn&#39;t aware that he was a FB, thanks Aec4, but I still think it&#39;s a bit early to draft a FB in the 3rd. But if he&#39;s as good as people say he is, then this is a smart pick. I would&#39;ve preferred a WR or Oline, but seeing this is Richie Anderson II, I can live with it.

    The #1 rated FB is Mughelli.

    I saw alot of Michigan last year and I like Askew alot. This is a great pick. He accepted the role of fullback when asked to give up his tailback position. He is a powerful runner, a very good pass receiver and an adequate blocker that can get better. This is a very good pick. So far the only move that I am in love with.

    Anderson&#39;s contributions were huge even with the fumbles. Keep an open mind. I like Sowell a bunch, but another passing weapon can make the WRs already here more dangerous. And no one on this team has been much of a FB in those blocking back, short-yard and goaline situations. This could be a nice wrinkle if Askew can do those things.
