    The first thing I thought was Arian Foster -- really fluid in his vision, route choices, and hip/feet movement. Has a good burst into traffic as well.
    Looks promising, hope he sticks in our rotation.

    What I like is that he's not just dancing around. To be fair there was some good blocking on some of those runs but there was also some good vision and turn and go downfield. Time will tell but for sure his instincs seem to be a lot better than DT's. I still think Miller is the starter tho but this could be a nice 1-2 punch.

    Ozzy rules!!

    He's not as elusive or as fast as Miller but for where we got him, I'm ok with it.

    I actually think Gills is more elusive. But anyways...nice pick of a versatile kid who can play every down and tote the rock between or outside the Tackles.

    He looks faster than the 4.55 40 time nfl.com has for him.

    I don't really see him with much shake and bake. He has good acceleration and good balance though. I just don't see him making a man miss.

    Ran 4.5 flat at combine twice. He is very good zone scheme runner and was always good since he was a freshman. He was just stuck behind top RBs before it was his turn. He can take it to the house inside 40 yards. Will get caught if he has to run too far.

    For the fans thinking he will jump Miller on the depth charge, I don't see it happening. That being said, he he's a tough rb who fights for every inch and is a north runner and not much of a make you miss type of back. Solid pick where miami got him and could push Thomas off the roster

    Decisive one-cut. Fits the offense.

    I'm 50/50 on this pick. I don't expect much from him though.

    40 speed is overrated for a RD. The first five steps is the most important. And can he make a sharp cut without losing speed.

    Love this pick - only one I got right in my entire mock. :)

    He will provide a great extra option at RB - needs to tuck the ball better when he runs in traffic though. Good low center of gravity when he runs.

    the combo of him and miller will drive defenses crazy. i think we got a real steal with him, he is very explosive hit the hole, and sees the hole before it is even happens

    He has also been relatively injury free which is a huge upside. I like guys that stay healthy.

    Reggie Bush's main problem was too much dancing

    Will be a good backup to Miller. Good pick.

    i love tis pick too, he can catch out of the backfield plus if you watch other youtube tape he is a pretty good pass blocker! i love the fact that him and miller in the backfield! UF vs UM for bragging rights who is better, there will be alot of smack talk plus i blieve thomas is on his way out of miami!

    I think we came out with a guy who's a lock for the roster and a pretty good number of snaps every week. He has versatility that we need with Miller's shortcomings, but he also has experience toting the rock as the workhorse - also important given Miller's track record or lack thereof. I thought we did well for ourselves with Gills considering that this RB class was weak after Gio. I'm pretty excited about him.
