I'm more interested in Owen Schmidt in this role. He's got great hands for a guy his size, can come out of the backfield to block or run routes, and has a mean streak.

There have been a couple reports from espn ( tv mel kiper section) that some of the smaller TE's will move to the H-back/ TE posisition. IF we draft Tamme I would rather him just stay at TE. But i really love Owen Shmidt. Also on my list of favorites is Peyton Hillis. This guy made Darren McFadden and Felix Jones have more time. He was a weapon. McFadden was a weapon. Jones was a weapon. Hillis can block run catch even paint the fences and warm you bench. He really is a utility man

All three Razorback 'backs were great college players. From games I watched, I don't recall Hillis being horribly slow either.

What's the highest aggregate position that three backs from the same school have been drafted, in the same year?

They are correctly looking at a lot of options. You don't know until draft day who is going to be on the board when they pick. They are merely doing due diligence, just as any business does before entering a contract situation.

Highest aggregate? Wouldn't you want to know the lowest instead, or the lowest average?
