Eagles should look at RB Roy Helu Jr.

Roy Helu Jr.As everybody knows, I mostly use this blog to talk the NFL draft and free agency. That is my bread and butter. I do believe that front offices do their  fair share of homework on the internets and it would behoove them to read for my recommendations. We were very high on both DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy and the Eagles grabbed both of them.

The Eagles used this past draft to add several defensive pieces. In the 2011 draft, I believe the Eagles will add an offensive lineman or two in the first two rounds and target a cornerback in round 2 or 3. In round 4, I’m hoping that could add a bruising RB to backup LeSean McCoy. One player that I’m enamored with is Roy Helu, Jr. out of Nebraska. He is a 6’0″ 220 pound Polynesian bruiser. He’s currently ranked as the 8th best back in next year’s draft class according to Draft Countdown. If he’s available in round 4, I would take him. He’ll probably go in round 3 though.

Last year Helu had 1147 yards on 220 carries (5.2 YPC) and 10 TDs. Against the Huskies, Helu posted 110 yards on just 10 carries and had 2 TDs. He’s a player you’ll want to keep your eye on for the remainder of the year. He also averaged over 10 yards per carry against Idaho in week 2.

Check out these highlights below. I wish there was a better quality version, but you’ll see how this dude runs.
