Yes and No
Warrick Dunn would not go 12th overall in 2023, think that was 1997/98 when the Bucs took him and they had no QB(Dilfer), not much at the receiving skill positions either which is why Dunn racked up so many catches when he first arrived and he split duties with Alstott much of the time.
Agreed he wouldn't go 12 now. I was just pointing out the issue with dismissing Breida as a comp for going undrafted out of Georgia Southern (?) And then saying Dunn is his comp. Where would Breida have been drafted if he came out of TAM this year?
Prospect comps don't mean player career arc comps. I don't really have an issue with either comp just considering them as prospects.
I think a rookie version of Breida in this offense is someone I'm pretty OK using a later 1st on. He pretty consistently got 10-15 carries and 45-65% snaps throughout 2018-19. His problem was he kept leaving games in the 1st quarter over that span.
Thanks for posting back
I haven't done much in the way of projections yet, not sure where I'm at.
Mostert 181 carries
Jeff Wilson 84 carries, 8 games
Chase Edmonds-42 carries, 8 games was traded, Miami gave him $6-$8M before he was traded to Denver
Ahmed 12 carries, Gaskin 10
I don't see anyone on the roster currently with Achane's skill set and furthermore the 2 guys who had the most touches are injury prone.
Career numbers for anyone that wants to look, even when he is full speed he's not that scary
Jeff Wilson had an opp to seize control last season when he came over from SF and did not.
Achane avg 20 carries a game in 2022 for A&M in the SEC
I see a lot more than a handful of gadget plays
