I think he'll go but I don't think he will go high. Either way, I'm grateful for what he's done for the team and I'm glad to have him for one more game. GO BUCKS!!!

My heart says rounds 2-3 my head says rounds 4-5.  Either way I wish him nothing but success.  Go Bucks.

Same.  I said 3rd, but I think he's going be invited to the combine, where, barring injury, he's going to dominate.  And that will shot his stock upwards.

I agree.  He posted a 4.35 40-yard dash about a year and a half ago, which is blindingly fast for a RB and probably unrealistic.  Compare that to Denzel Ward, who posted a 4.21 on the same leaderboard, which wound up being a 4.32 at the Combine.  If you add the same amount to Weber's time because of the faster track, that winds up being a 4.46, which is still really fast for a 6'2" 220 pound guy.

I'm not convinced he will be drafted, but the NFL is full of running backs who weren't drafted so i don't see that as particular cause for concern.

As he stands right now he is a 5th round draft choice.

Positive: Low carry total high YPC. Blocks better than most RB's and has good hands. Yards after contact is better then average and overall speed is above average. Height and weight is good.

Negative: injury prone, ball security, elusiveness is lacking, contact engagement is higher then optimal. 

In his Pro day his 40 time will either move him up or keep him in the late rounds. He will go in the draft and in all honesty he can be Frank Gore or a 2 year and out guy.

Nailed everything here.  He's not projected to be a generational type talent right now, which for a RB means a drop in draft position. The position is being devalued more and more every year outside of the top 5-7 guys. The ball security thing he's going to have to fix or he won't be in the league long no matter where he's drafted.  However, he definitely brings enough to the table to get a look somewhere. Damn near every team plays 3-4 RBs every game anyways.

I think he'll go in the 5th - 7th. I think he'll workout a bit better than expected though.

He'll be a last day pick, but will pleasantly surprise whoever drafts him.

Sounds like we are all pretty much on the same page. Happy for him and his future.

II think if he was not injury prone he would be a 3rd round guy. His injury history puts him back to the 5th round. I think the Chiefs, Titans, and the Ravens would be great fits for him.

Am I the only person who would have had a much easier time selecting my vote if "3-4" were an option?

I'm thinking 6-7.  Last year probably would have been better for him.

A big first round rookie contact is nice I suppose, but that first free agent contract is where the money is at. If he proves himself he'll get paid one way or the other.

He's not going in round 1

No he isn't, but there's nothing wrong with going in the fifth or sixth round, kicking some ass and taking some names for a few years then getting paid with a free agent contract. Most players entering the draft just want a shot at making it in the pros. Mike will certainly get that despite not getting drafted early.

He is a work horse who should show well at the combine.  Will miss him.

Nope, nothing wrong with that at all. He definitely has the skills and ability to play at the next level and I look forward to watching him play on Sundays

No higher than 4, but wouldn't be surprised if he didn't get picked until the end of 5

I put round 2-3 and believe that he has been underlooked due to splitting carries, but think he will excel at the combine.

late 3rd at best--best of luck, young man, and thank you for choosing wisely and spurning ttun

i think he'll be a 2-3 round pick as people dissect his tape and see him at the combine and pro day. The only reason he might drop to day 3 in my mind is injuries. Dude isn't little los for nothing, and we all saw his speed jump from year 1 to 2. I'd take weber over LJ Scott, for example.

There are a number of outstanding RBs in the NFL and being an average back (which is where I'd list him) is a big compliment. He's fast, quick, smart and strong but not extreme anywhere but a very good solid NFL prospect that teams will try to get without breaking the bank..

Where is the assumption that he'll dominate the combine coming from?  I don't recall him having a rep as a super athlete or anything.

HS

Many draft boards have him ranked between the 7th and 13th best RB in the draft, which means he could go as high as late 2nd round or as late as early 5th round. 3rd - 4th round is most likely. Not that bad.

Staying another year and splitting more carries with JK didn't make much sense for a guy that is obviously physically mature and has already been dinged up a lot in his career and has taken a lot of hits already.

Late third round. His durability is the only legit knock against him. He'll be a Duke Johnson to a Nick Chubb or Bernard to Mixon. And he'll be great at it!

I hope he goes as high in the draft as possible for him, but what concerns me is all the times he was shoestring tackled or caught from behind. maybe his hamstring injury was a cause of that, but still concerning especially against NFL players.

I voted 2-3, but think the fumbling issues may result in a 4th or 5th round pick.

It is time!!!!!

I think he'll be a late round guy, but I think he'll be a really good NFL RB.

I guess the thing is, if he stayed he probably wouldn’t improve his draft position.  So why not go ahead and get your money and start building your NFL Resume’?

For sure I wish him the best.

2-3, he was misused in Urban's offense
