  • Matt Forte, RB, Tulane

    Hey guys, I wanted to know your thoughts about this RB. Forte's stock raised recently and I saw Mike Mayock had him as his #3 senior RB. What do you think about him?

    He reminds me of a poor man's Deuce McAllister. He has good straight line speed, very good build, is strong and powerful, can knock people over if he has to. Always keeps his legs going and tends to have a nose for the endzone. I don't know much about his ability to catch out of the backfield. Definitely won't run away from anyone and has some durability concerns.

    I consider him a sleeper prospect.

      I would compare him to Dorsey Levens. He catches out of the back field, hits the hole hard, a power runner.

        So, he is strong. Strong in portuguese is... Forte. I think that's coincidence.

          Forte has been kind of a late bloomer. His production shot up this year, as his stock has. He's strong, has good strait speed. He's not the most agile guy, but he has a good burst and makes fairly definitive cuts. You may worry a bit about competition, but I don't as much as others. He's a good prospect. Deuce is a good comparison, but he's not quite as bulky as Deuce and I think he has better speed.

              I have him as the number 1 Fullback. That's where I think he'll earn his money. I dont see him as a featured RB unless a team drafts him as a change of pace back

                i don't think many teams will look at him as a fullback, great between the tackles runner, wears down a defense over the course of a game, can take a simple dive and break it for 60 yards, not top end speed but is explosive and picks up speed quickly once he hits the hole

                He kind of reminds me of a more physical Edge

                I'm guessing he will go in the 3rd unless he has an amazing or terrible combine, i still personally prefer him to Kevin Smith & Chris Johnson

                  Forte has shown this year that he does have good hands and can catch it out of the backfield adding yet another dimension to his game. Hes a tweener but I still like him as a change of pace back who I can see being a nice complementary back in a 2-RB system in a couple years.

                      Might fit on the Jags as Maurice Drew's change-of-pace guy for the future.

                      Drew-Forte, the future one-two punch of the Jags?

                        Why would teams look at him as a FB? He only weighs around 220. Most NFL RB's are at least that big.

                          This is what I had been thinking. He'd have to get to around 230-235 and show a lot of strength at the combine, IMO, to really warant a move to fullback.

                            I'm thinking he's this year's version of Brian Leonard

                              That's one comparison I don't buy into that much.
