I think Ford is drafted mid to late, easily..he's been moving up the charts after testing well (he's in top 3-4 of just about every combine category). Spencer Ware is least likely of RBs to be drafted IMO....

They rank on value, efficiency, etc. So one could say we are as high as we are because our draft picks don't go as high as they should based on their performance in the NFL. I suppose it's a good recruiting tool, but I could use it against LSU if I were a recruiter for another school....

Initially Brazil and Diarse, as they will be in games immediately and play a factor. Once they get some game experience, I think White will win starting job.
So early, Brazil/Diarse...late White/Diarse (he will impress like Landry and earn more looks as season goes on)....

I agree with 2 and 3, I don't see any resemblance of Air Coryell in our current offense. We currently use very few deep throws, very little motion, non-existent passes over the middle to RBs, TEs, WRs...and much more.
The only thing I'd say is that it resembles our current offense much more than...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Cam Cameron = Charlie Weiss - philter on 2/8/13 at 8:58 pm|
I seem to remember their QB being hurt and out for a few games, then never the same when they came back. I think they lost both RBs to injury at some point in season as well. Tough to implement a new system when QB and best offensive players are not able to practice together....

| Tiger Rant|| re: Is Cam Cameron a done deal? - philter on 2/4/13 at 9:12 pm|
I agree, and hiring someone like Cameron...who Miles knows and trusts...will allow him to give more free reign to his OC.
Also...as we see with Cameron arguing Harbaugh about philosophy..he's not afraid to speak up when things aren't going his way. I would like this hire in many different ways....
