    Maybe not 1 year of Weber. I've seen him being taken in the first 2 rounds in mock drafts.

    Which will happen as soon as the first round mocks for Parris. He is going pro though, and if the hammy does not get in the way, it will be this spring.

    Weber in the first two rounds? I mean unless something changes here this year I'm not sure how he's a top two rounds kind of guy.

    Would be like Pittman going pro after his Junior year IMO if he leaves.. Probably will back fire if you ask me with a 4th-6th round type of position.

    He's good and reliable but IMO he'd definitely have to get going a bit to warrant going higher in the draft. Hopefully though we win it all and he finishes so strong he gets a high enough grade.

    Way too high IMO. I could see him going in the 4th at the earliest but if he does decide to go next year he hasn’t been wore out from playing time(minus the hamstring injury) compared to some other RB’s drafted. Still would like to see him come back another year fully healthy and potentially raise his draft stock.

    Mock drafts mean nothing this early. I believe last year around this time or earlier Deshone Kizer and Brad Kaaya were 1st round picks... Weber is 4th Rd, at best. You don't lose your starting spot after only starting one year and get drafted in the first two rounds

    I'd be stunned if he went higher than the 6th round and I'm a Weber fan. He's simply not going to have the production this year to go high and I doubt he'll have a combine that can make up for it.

    Preface by saying that I've got all sorts of new respect for this kid. It couldn't have been easy standing there watching JKD earlier this season and having to work back into playing time. That said, he seems to have gutted it out, acted like a man, and had a game of it against the pedsters. I'm just not sure how much better he or his prospects really get with another year versus the chance of additional injury. RBs have a short shelf life. It might be better to get into the League and get paid to get better.

    The NFL isnt like college football. It's a passing league. Unless you are a phenomenal back, you aren't that useful. So, what happens is the capable back who is a great pass blocker has more value. Enter Mike Weber. Kid can run but he's following in Zekes footsteps as a great pass blocker and capable pass catcher. Times have changed and Mike can get money. If he stays, Dobbins will pass him on this roster so he's taking a chance. I'd love to see them both in the backfield for a while and kick some ass together.

    Not sure what his draft status will be or when he will enter. I'm just glad that he is healthy now and contributing again. He's a nice complement to JK and we have a really solid backfield when you also throw in Williams.

    Had that extra gear today he hasn't has all season. Nice to have 2 homerun threats and RB now.

    I honestly just think it was because we called run plays. Plays he knew he was getting the ball and he could get downfield.

    When we do zone read it slows the backs down and when you're a downhill runner like Mike that's not his strength
