I agree, prof. He's also 29 (30 next month). I will be disappointed if we do not draft a big back in the draft. I like the signing, but we need a big back as well.
I actually hate the signing and not because I do not like Mostert. I just do not grasp it.
Maybe they are trying to trade Gaskin, but I've seen enough of Gaskin to believe he has the ability if used properly to be a back just like the two Miami has just spend large amounts on. They just played on better teams W/ better blocking and coaching. Gaskin has speed, elusive in the open field and can catch out of the backfield, but he is just not a back ( Neither are these two ) that run the ball 20 times every week or move a pile on 3rd & 1 or on the goal line.
As for a big back. With these signing I do not believe Miami will go RB before the 5th Rd, if at all. Doaks might be the big back, cause Grier did not expose him to being poach last yr.
