    Big fan of Izzy! Great value here in the 5th.

    There were a few other players available that I liked here but this was a good value for us.

    And a much needed one with Ty Johnson out and Breece coming off injury. 1400+ yards rushing, 20TDs, 20 years old. Beast. Probably a starter until Breece is back.

    Anyone still on the fence about Izzy, can’t be too upset with sub 4.3 speed, right?

    No such thing as too many playmakers.

    Have to make it tough to game plan against. Also, not confident Breece will be 100% for start of season.

    I really like the rest of the draft beyond the 1st round. I Realize the board really didn't fall the way any of us wanted, I still think I would've rather had JSN instead. Despite that though.. I can't be mad at this draft overall. Well done. Excited about this kid.

    Izzy and Breece maybe we'll see an old fashioned T-Formation. Shades of Conka and Kiick.

    Same here. Disappointed in the first round mainly due to losing Jones on unnecessary pick swap, but overall I think JD did a solid job. Let's just hope the kids pan out the way JD/Saleh see them.

    On the ESPN telecast, they gave a Tevin Coleman comp, which is interesting considering we saw what an older, past his prime version of Coleman did in this offense.

    He worked as a kick returner too averaging over 22 yards per return. I love the pick here.

    He played at Lincoln High …Right near Coney Island Hospital where I once did an Internship

    Nice to have a hometown kid in the building
