I think Crosby will be at LB way before Blue.

Sooner the better for Crosby...don't want him behind the curb (I think he has seen what has happened to Rainey, so I'm thinking he will move to LB quickly). Blue is a beast & could mature into our version of #44 Copeland from LSU...Definately a FB.

Our Coaches recruited this kid as a RB because they believe he can play RB. I agree he could certainly be a good LB but I see the move to RB sticking. I think Copeland, Pinnock, Bettis, are all good comparisons on what Blue could be. Also keep in mind he is a devastating blocker and I do mean devastating. He blows people up. If you have not seen this kid he is a wrecking ball and massive on his 5'10" frame.

Much bigger than Daccus Turman. Blue is a true FB who can run and block very well. He impressed me on the short yardage runs at the Shrine Bowl. He may be the most underrated player in this class.

What is scary is he is bigger, faster, and more athletic than Turman.

I'd like to see him at FB like Copeland at LSU, but I always wanna see him play a little MLB just so I can see a few of his hits. Some of his defensive highlights are downright terrifying

I think Walton would make a better RB, even more powerful if you ask me, I think Blue would make the better LB out of Walton, Crosby and Blue.

Everyone do yourself a favor and look at Walton's high school highlights. He looks like a true SEC RB. I think he'll be great at either RB or LB IMO

Our coaches love Walton at LB. Botkin says he is perhaps the best tackler out of the group. So I doubt u see him at RB.

I agree and being we are recruiting Blue as a RB I sure don't understand the questioning of what position he will be playing. Yes they can move him but there will be no need with the depth we are building at LB.

Is there any way Joe plays TB rather than FB? Can he be a zone read guy?

I am too, but he is still pretty green there. Blue I think has better defensive instincts. Either way we have options.

Walton does have good RB film from high school, but the competition he is playing against is pretty poor. LB is probably the best fit for him

Blue is an interesting prospect. Kinda reminds me of a Mike Tolbert-type back with the little strides and power. I could see him being used in short yardage situations. Frankly, I don't see the speed for him to be able to move at LB. I don't doubt that he can come in and put on serious muscle, but speed might be an issue if the staff wants to move him to LB

Your post is a little confusing. Linebackers don't typically have more speed than tailbacks, and Blue is in the range of most big tailbacks. He already has the build a linebacker would need, so I'm not getting the "serious muscle" comment. I will be interested to see his timed speed when he gets here, but his reported speed is quite good for an inside linebacker. He just might be a good power back for our system, but played on both sides in high school.
