Nice draft, solid mix of players.

I do think guard Asiata is gone before the Packers 4th round pick (but we'll soon find out where he really goes). If I took a RB in round three I'd hope for Perine to still be there - I might take Mack over Hunt, as well. They are all at least decent players.

I hear you. I like all these rb's you mentioned too. It's just that the Packers more "finesse" OLine is not gonna be opening or maintaining big holes with relative frequency, hence I think a bigger, straightline back like Perine or a longer strider like Mack may not have as much success (with the Packers OLine) as a Hunt who is just so quick to hit the hole and just gets skinny through the smallest of holes. He has uncanny balance, and hence why he breaks so many tackles. Hunt lacks the long speed and wont break many +20yd runs like a Mack would. He wont move a pile in short yardage situations like Perine might, But just for getting positive yardage, especially on those plays where the Oline is losing the battle, I think Hunt brings more possibility. As I said, I think he might be a better fit working with a Packers OLine. He was 225 pnds for the season, but only 208 at the Senior Bowl, where he ran for over a 100 yards against top talent. That's my rationale on him. But hey, you may be right on Mack and Perine over him. We will see.

Like the picks! You could have as many as 3 starters from those guys.

I'd say this is a pretty good stab at what could become a great draft. I'd take it in a heart beat.
