    Looking more like a UFA each passing pick.

    Did he or Trey sign with an agent? Asking for a friend...

    So never is a bit over the top IMO. Still with QB protection the top priority of the NFL the running back position is probably permanently diminished.

    The Carolina, Saints, and Dallas backs certainly provide evidence that talent will show itself.
    Yeah I was using hyperbole when I said it but y'all understand what I'm saying right? Adrian Peterson got cut. Lenord Fournet got cut. Henry could be a hall of famer with Tennessee but if he ever gets hurt or even if his production slips I can see them cutting him and getting a younger back. RBs in the new NFL is an after thought now. Just above a safety/nickle back

    Do either of the two backs have an agent? If not, can they still return for a final year? Into round 6 and no pick and no reference to being top selections still out there. I thought Mitchell was considered the 4th or 5th best back to be drafted? What happened? Do they still go pro even if one of the last picks or return to play a final year if still eligible? We would be pretty formidable if they did and our success might make them more draftable. Just asking. I think I've only seen one SBC player drafted, a safety from App State.

    Well, 49ers just drafted Mitchell, so that answers my question, at least about him.

    I think you have to declare by a certain time frame. I would think once you declare you can't come back.

    To be fair Peterson was traded for more than production. His misguided excessive spanking made him a social disaster. Fournet didn’t live up to his draft hype. The QB has always been the most important player on most teams. They also are protected much better than running backs so their production generally lasts much longer than in the past.

    Talking heads from the mothership says great fit with Niners, with a chance to be a 1k yard back. That’s huge.

    Stay humble, grind and trust.


  15. Ragin' Cajuns Football: Mitchell Selected by San Francisco in 2021 NFL Draft



    Three-time All-Sun Belt Conference running back Elijah Mitchell was drafted into the National Football League (NFL) after he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 194th overall pick in the Sixth Round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Mitchell is the third Louisiana running back taken over the last five NFL Drafts, joining former teammate Raymond Calais, who was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2020 Draft, and Elijah McGuire, who was chosen by the New York Jets during the 2017 Draft.

    "We are incredibly proud of Elijah Mitchell," head coach Billy Napier said. "He represents exactly what Louisiana Football is about, as a person, student, and now as a professional football player. The San Francisco 49ers are getting a great teammate who will embrace his role and work to earn more. He truly represents the #cULture! Congratulations to Eli."

    A native of Erath, La., Mitchell finished his Louisiana career ranked fifth in career rushing touchdowns (41) and sixth in career rushing yards (3,267).

    During the 2020 campaign, he led the Ragin' Cajuns in rushing, toting the ball 141 times for 878 yards and eight touchdowns. His yardage total was third in the league and 23rd nationally, while his eight rushing scores were the fifth most in the Sun Belt and tied for 41st nationally.

    The running back produced a season-high 164 yards on the ground and scored two touchdowns during the team's overtime win at Georgia State. He capped off his senior campaign by carrying the ball 19 times for 127 yards, the most by a Ragin' Cajun in a bowl game in program history, and a touchdown to earn bowl game MVP honors.

    As a junior, Mitchell became the sixth player in program history to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in a single season with 1,147 yards and 16 rushing scores. His rushing total was the fourth best in the Sun Belt in 2019 and good for 31st nationally, while his touchdown total was the second most in the conference and the 11th most in FBS.

    In 2018, he accounted for 1,334 total yards from scrimmage, 985 of which came on the ground, and 16 total touchdowns in 13 starts.

    Over the course of his career, he earned Second Team All-Sun Belt Conference honors in 2018 and 2019, while picking up First Team recognition following the 2020 campaign.
