Let's make a friendly bet, I think Henry rushes for more yards and TD's than zek does (baring injuries to either guy) winner chooses other guys avatar picture for at least a month? :tongue:

I think he'll be a great Pro. :confused:

Most RBs are pretty much a dime a dozen, even the good ones. I think EZ has a chance to be special.

Im not sure I understand what you are saying, Im assuming you would be ok with spending a first on him regardless of your comment about RBs being a dime a dozen?

I suppose if there is a RB worthy of a 1st round pick, I don't have a hard time seeing Elliot as that kind of back. I'm not crazy about the idea of spending those kind of picks on RBs generally though. But if he is there at 23 and they pick him, I won't be furious.

Zek is worth it. But he wont get AD money. The entire Vikings organization likes RB's it seems. One like Zek dont come around much. PLus hes better blocking and recieving then AD is.

Lacey going to be a darn good rb is he can control himself, keep the weight off, and stays in the gym. Like a top 5. Going to be hard to focus on Lacey with Rogers picking things apart.

Lacy was alright even overweight, I cant wait to see how he bounces back this up coming year, he made Tony Horton his personal trainer and he looks lean as he ever has before on his twitter photos.

If Elliot really is worth a 1st round pick, he will probably command AD type money eventually.

No RB will command AD type money for a long time. I have no idea why the Vikings are paying AD that type of money. Next year he won't be making more than 7 million a year. It'll be up to him if he wants to be a Viking or make that much (or less) elsewhere.
