    234. Myles Gaskin, RB, Washington A Grade
    I wrote that the Dolphins don't have a viable starting running back, but perhaps Myles Gaskin will be able to emerge as one. Gaskin is a very good runner with great vision and feet. He also never fumbles. The problem is that he's barely 200 pounds and probably won't be able to shoulder a complete workload. However, he could develop into someone who is a nice contributor in a running back committee. Gaskin could've been chosen much earlier than this, so I love this pick.

    probably too small to be a good pass pro tho I'm seen him will his way into the end zone thru bigger guys so we'll see. NE likes these quick RB's that can catch so I'm sure they could be something there.

    How can you read something like this when the author states: as Rosen has zero passion for football and would rather party his life away, much like Blake Bortles
    and the dolphins dont have a viable running back these are two of the most ridiculous things I have read since i checked on armando and omars tweets.

    Agree. First thing that really stands out is the kids vision -- which tends to be so underrated
    when translating to the NFL. I really like his quicks and it sure seems he processes the field
    really fast and yet demonstrates superior patience... From the highlights he looks like
    he's ready for some immediate spot action IMO. Could be an amazing grab for R7.

    Pass protection is his weakness. I think he's more than a third-down back. I think the Forcett comparison I read somewhere holds. He's a quick-footed kid with good vision who seldom takes big shots and can hit home runs for you.

    Exceptional value where we got him. He produced in a top college conference for several years.

    Agree

    Amazing vision and Barry Sanderish moves, and from Highlights I've seen seems to always be moving north and south with them...

    He is the all-time leading rusher for the Washington Huskies... Lets hope it carries over to the next level....

    I could see him giving us some every down play in a rotation
