Jonathan Franklin is certainly a very talented back. Great balance and vision, and he seemingly never goes down on first contact. He doesn't have exceptional speed but is definitely fast enough to be a good nfl back. Reminds me a lot of marshawn lynch actually. However the demand for running backs is low, I think he's probably a 3rd rounder.

Fauria excels in the red zone, he's a total mismatch. Probably a 4-5th rounder.

Anthony Barr has potential to go in the first round, teams fall in love with pass rushers and Barr has definitely shown the ability without even full knowing the position.

What round will he go in?

What round would you take him for the Chargers? (if at all).

As to Bruins, generally -- Are there any Bruins you guys see going in Rounds 1 or 2? That you would like on the Chargers?
i think he will be there in the 2nd behind montee ball we can call him

If Barr is there in the 2nd, and there is an OL available that we all want, and our next GM takes Barr, what will you say? I will say he fills a need, now let's draft OL/CB in the 3rd.
I really don't see Barr lasting anywhere near the second. His athleticism is going to make people drool IMO, and he is just scratching the surface. He should be top 20.

I agree with this. However, I would argue that a great oline for Rivers would win us more games than a slightly better pass rush. Still, if it came down to Barr or another highly rated pass rusher in the second versus a second tier O lineman, I'd take the pass rusher.

Id be surprised if he didn't go in the first round.

Who Barr? I'd be shocked if he fell to the second, or even out of the top 20.

I would be more than happy to take Franklin in the third round. He has the perfect height (imo) for running backs, holds the ball high and tight, GREAT hands, nice burst, enough speed, tough between the tackles, good vision, and just enough elusiveness. Only negatives are weight and lack of a great second gear. With the devaluation of rbs, a good rb should be there in the third or fourth round.

What's his degree of wear and tear? He'll be a 24 year old rookie which leaves him a few number of seasons til the 30 year old mark.
